I love Spring that it has fresh air to the world, I love it so. I went out with my Dad and Ruby down to the beach and it was really fun.
I wish Spring could last forever its always better than Summer.
On another note I was checking in my Youtube Subscriptions and I found out that I was a Runner Up in Little Rich's Big Lottery which is really cool. I won a slot on his channel and $15 Amazon Voucher which is really great.
Here's the video with the result.
Right Im off to check out some sites and then play some computer games.

This is the latest interview in the Face 2 Face series.
I interviewed TEMPHUiBIS who have met a couple of times and hes a really cool guy. Now as soon as the NSG interview was done. TEMPHUiBIS asked if he could do an interview with me and I said I was thinking about interviewing him which was great.
Now TEMPHUiBIS suggested to do his end outside which I thought was a really good idea and I think it is. The walking away part at the end was also TEMPHUiBIS and fitted the interview perfectly.
Now the questions were done from my bedroom where I usually do vlogs and I normally do them in my Study but I thought of different scenery but I will probably not do that again.
So future Face 2 Face videos I will do the question stuff in the Study rather than my Bedroom.
I think this is a brillant interview, I dont know who I will interview next so you will have to wait and see.
Oh yeah just on a note I will be doing ten interviews per series/season as I think it is a lot better.
The final one in the series I will not reveal who it is until the video is finally up like the others.
Anyway have a great weekend everyone.

I went to Peterborough yesterday and thought that was amazing.
Before we arrived in Peterborough here's a nice video of mate Arron doing something from the Jay & Silent Bob films.
Arron is always fun to be around. Great guy.
Now I went up to Bowling in Peterborough and I thought it was going to be fun and full of laughs which it was.
My Bowling skills were top notch and I thought I was going to be shit but I destroyed everyone in it. I dont know when it comes to Bowling I am on a competition level, strange how that works.
For anyone who doesnt know what Bowling is here is a playlist to explain
To finish this entry. I love this video that NSG Produced and its called "Jeeday Jawz VS TEDD - Bitter"

I like Rorschach character because he is a guy who is trying to do the right thing while he was a bit of rebel doing his own thing. He wanted the Watchmen to get back together again because the Comedian (Played By Jeffrey Dean Morgan) was murdered at the beginning of the film and felt the watchmen were under threat. I aslo like all out realness that this sort of thing could happen to the world.
To me the ending which I will not reveal has a very good reason while some of you look on it as evil which I found in a way but I can understand the motivation for why it was done.
I heard about the Watchmen first from a Youtube User called Blunty3000 who I dont watch anymore and looked to be a real promising film to the consumer which I think it is excellent.
This is totally different to other superhero films which makes it good that they are neutral meaning they do good things but at the same time some of their actions can be thought of as bad which we as human beings realised that there is no such thing as True good or True evil.
I think there needs to be more of that in films where there can be something new that opens up our minds to how film/cinema/comic can be done. Im sick and tired of the same old stuff in films.
I think a moral should be told in films but I feel it should be done in an original way.
FACE 2 FACE ENQUIRY
OK Guys I see that Face 2 Face is becoming a success which has taken over from the old Channel recommendations which is really cool. I am surprise though to be honest. I have had some messages from people saying they want to be on Face 2 Face which is excellent which at first the one I did with BillTVMacon was meant to be a one off but people liked it which was cool.
My E-mail address is Barry832003@googlemail.com if you want an interview or help out with any future Face 2 Face interviews like Intro or Music segments.
OK Bye everyone
Got a busy day looking after Ruby and stuff.
Tuesday, March 17, 2009
how is it going everyone?
Im doing great at the moment which is great, Im hoping to see my mate Arron tomorrow which is always fun. Dont know what we are doing hopefully it will be something fun maybe going to see the Watchmen film which should be awesome. I heard a lot of praise for the film which is great to go in for but I will be open minded for the film.
Heres a Trailer for the film
Brighton could be an option to see the film as Arron and myself enjoy Brighton a lot. So yeah going to be awesome sweet.
Life is going good at the moment with Ruby still being some inspiration to my family and me which is awesome. Hopefully it will get better.
Strawberry Bon Bons are so awesome. Check them out.
OK I did another Face 2 Face Interview but this time with NSG who is another favourite youtuber that I like to watch. The Interview was done in 2 parts.
Now the idea for the phone call interview came from NSG and doing it live together which was crazy to me at first but I thought after a little bit this could totally be the best idea for an interview ever. This turned out to be brillant. I was quite surprised how the chemistry worked in this interview. The question about Miz Kaz turned to be funny and my reaction to him was real and it made the interview even better.
It was a challenge to edit and the quality of NSGs footage when he send it to me was outstanding and brillant, totally outshone my footage completely and it looks good in High Quality.
Thank You NSG again for doing the Interview again.
Oh yeah the next guest has already contacted me to do a Face 2 Face which is awesome but wont be for another week at least, got to think of the questions now.
P0YKPAC a brilliant Brooklyn comedy act have come out with a brilliant sketch called "FAIL ALE"
I love this much it is totally brilliant. I hope it does get recognised on Youtube if not a Global feature on the front page but a feature in their comedy section it is really funny. Totally taking the mick but really well done. I love P0YKPAC so much.
OK Guys thats all I got for now
Hopefully I will be watching the Watchmen tomorrow.
Oh one thing final thing
HAPPY ST PATRICKS DAY

I thought I better do a blog entry bit of a serious one.
LITTLEMISSKIT (ONE YEAR ON)
OK It was one year ago today that I heard the news of LittleMissKit aka Anne that she passed away. I know people who read this may not know who she was so I will briefly explain who she was.
LittleMissKit I knew her best as Anne who was a big supporter to the causes like Youstage, when a few youtubers went to Bristol to win Upstaged competition. She was from Leeds and she was so full of life to anyone she met. She was also there when you went on Stickam to chat to some other youtubers which was awesome. She had some great helpful advice when you felt down and out.
I remember the first time when I applied for the Youtube Partner Program, she was one of the first to say sorry that I had been turned down for the partner. I took it in good humour and she knew. She thought I should be part of the Legend program which was great to hear and I knew she was playing.
She always left comments like Meow or any other comment to say she has seen the video which is really comment, some people would have thought of it as spam, but I knew it was her way of saying hello. She was brillant.
Here's some of her Youtube Videos
Viva La Annelution!
Nerdfighter Gathering - Apple Store
Nerdfighter Gathering Video
Now I was able to meet Anne on the 16th of February for Mhazz's 18th birthday thing, I cant remember and the first thing she said "You Better Keep It" around that time I was debating whether to ditch or keep my Real Name No Gimmicks catchphrase. I decided to keep it in the end but I never got to tell her that. Anyway when we chatted at London Victoria we talked about gatherings that we went to.
She mentioned about the Nerdfighter gathering that was organised by Maureen and Charlie in the previous month of last year. She told me that Charlie recieved my message that I couldnt come to his gathering because of Transport problems and told her how the Christmas gathering I did back in 2007 did which was really cool. Its nice to have a chat.
Anyway we spent the day with others around London and then around early afternoon she had to leave to go back to Leeds and we said goodbye to her with hugs and weaving.
Now on this date last year I had heard rumours from people that LittleMissKit had passed away. I was leaving it until it got mentioned in either a Stickam chat room Im in or in a Youtube video.
It got confirmed by Daveyboyz who did this tribute
Now I was in shock when I heard about the news. I was doing the old channel recommendations when I was going to do 2 in one day to catch up the series but when I watched Daveys I decided to put it on hold and do a tribute myself which I have privated now. Later on Jessica aka xbrokenmindedx also did a tribute which was very touching.
I know I feel sad that she aint with us anymore but I think she is in a better place where this world is so tough on people and everything around it.
I remember before Anne's funeral Jessica (xbrokenmindedx) asked me for a message to be put in a card which I did and I cant remember what I put in it but I remember Jessica being touched by this because she send me a <3.
I saw the other month that people did a tribute videos to the Boringdispatcher who passed away also in 2008 which was very nice. So they did a one year anniversary for his memory. I heard he was a really cool guy from a lot of people
I thought I'll do a blog entry to explain how I feel about a year on with Anne's passing. She was one of the nicest people I have ever met. She was very kind and thoughtful to others. She made me laugh as well. Like I said I know she is in a better place smiling.
I miss you Anne (RIP)
My heart goes out.

Well The good news is that Face 2 Face is still strong with the this latest episode with DoctorBenjy.
Benjy is a really great guy that I have met three to four times I think throughout Last year which it has always been a pleasure.
I love the new Face 2 Face thing, it reminds me of my old channel recommendations but its done in a brillant way.
Thanks again Benjy
Right im off to watch Red Nose Day programming for the rest of the night.

I feel in a very mixed mood today which I will explain why I am in a good mood. Earlier this morning I got RESIDENT EVIL 5 through the post.
RESIDENT EVIL 5
I was so surprised and shock that I got one of possible game of the year titles a day early which is BLOODY BRILLANT. I could not believe that I got it.
Heres the synposis of the game from the Capcom Website
From the ashes of old conflicts, a new terror arises. The Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained. But a new, more dangerous threat has emerged. Years after surviving the events in Raccoon City, Chris Redfield has been fighting the scourge of bio-organic weapons all over the world. Now a member of the Bio-terrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSSA), Chris is sent to Africa to investigate a biological agent that is transforming the populace into aggressive and disturbing creatures. Joined by another local BSSA agent, Sheva Alomar, the two must work together to solve the truth behind the disturbing turn of events. Featuring a revolutionary new co-op mode of gameplay, Resident Evil 5 will let players experience fear together as terror moves out of the shadows and into the light of day.
Chris Redfield, protagonist of the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Code Veronica, returns and is joined by new playable character Sheva Alomar, an African BSAA agent tasked with investigating the epidemic. New cooperatively-focused gameplay revolutionizes the way that Resident Evil is played, allowing players to experience the next generation of fear together. Resident Evil 5 supports any form of co-op gameplay, including Online, Split-screen, and System Link modes.
Heres some pictures of me playing the game and some of the quality in one or two pictures maybe slightly bad.
That is the opening title sequence.
It looks like that I am trying to find an enemy around the corner.
Looks like I have found some bad guys.
Menu Sequences sometimes I hate these.
Im going in for the kill which is always awesome.
Killing time Part 2
Going up some steps it looks like.
This game is so amazing, The look of the game is stunning. The graphics are top notch when I was watching the Bonus DVD that you get with the Limited edition they really went all out on this title. It shows they did the Full motion capture.
I will admit does not have a patch of The First Resident Evil when it comes to a scary environment, I remember playing the original on the Playstation. When you were playing the same character Chris Redfield and this time you are teamed up with woman called Sheva Alomar who helps you out in this game. Now the real catch is that you have to try to keep yourself alive and your partner alive. Even if your partner dies then it is Game Over which makes the game more of a challenge which I find excellent. Now can not run and shoot at the same time as the other games which a lot of gamers got turned off by.
But this is a first impressions so will wait and see how it goes after a few days
Now I was watching a BillTVMacon video earlier and it was called "Why I May Be Leaving YouTube"
One of the things that I really like about Bill is that he explains his situations without using forced language or being abusive towards his viewers. He explained that one of videos had some copyright issue. In the video he say that if he leaves Youtube then thats the reason why.
Now I was talking to Bill before he put the video asking me about this copyright deal and I tried to explain it to him the best way I can because it is very hard to explain Youtube's copyright and very confusing.
Its sad shame. Bill isnt the only one to face this, there are others who are facing the same situation, people I know and regularly watch their videos.
Plus this is added on the fact that the other day that the UK Youtube users can not watch music videos.
Heres the news article about the Youtube situation - Youtube stands by UK Video Block
Here's a blog entry by Darren Waters that explains the whole situation - Youtube Row Reflects Online Minefield
Now this whole situation does make me worry but I know I will overcome this when hopefully I will put out a video either the weekend or on Monday. If this keeps on happening and if it happens to my mate Arron who did a Lip Sync video the other day and gets some problems then I am going to have a serious problem with Youtube.
Im hoping not to go that road.
It is Red Nose Day tomorrow and please donate what you can to http://tinyurl.com/rednose2009
Everything counts and I'll be back soon.
Bye for now

Short Notes (Its got nothing to do with me, Laptop Fun, Two Pints Of Lager, Superman and Brillant Cover Song)
Anyway speaking on this, Scott Mills has done nothing wrong to me, so don’t drag anything down my way unless Mr Mills has done something wrong to me ok. So I don’t care if you have a problem with someone unless we have the same problem. I will just say to you That’s your situation not mine ok.
That is the end of subject for good.
Right onto the fun side of my blog I am going to talk about my new laptop. Got it on Thursday after the nightmare visit to the dentist when I was told I will have to have two teeth pulled out including one of wisdom teeth. Right back to the laptop, I have been using so much lately which is really good. I was excited to use it. It was a pain to load up every program before I can use it but to fair it is my first laptop. I installed a couple of old games which were Sam & Max Season 1 and Command & Conquer 3 which worked so much better with my laptop.
I may install Music software to do some music in my free time. Should be something fun in my spare time. Hooray.
I watched a bad episode of Two Pints of Lager which was for Comic Relief and I normally like the show. It featured the cast of two really bad sitcoms (Grownups and Coming Of Age). It was a special for Comic Relief which I couldn’t be mad at completely. I did enjoy Two Pints: Fags, Lads and Kebabs documentary that looked back at the series after 8 series which is really awesome.
Liam aka Littleradge did some random photo on Facebook which I may share with you guys.
Liam just one question “Why am I Superman?” Just want to know
Finally I want to leave on a brillant video done by LaiYouttitham which was sent to me by RIPFILMS and I think this is so awesome. It is a cover to Halleujah and the editing of the video is superb.
OK Bye guys

It is my Red Nose Day video which I tell Knock Knock Jokes. Now finding good Knock Knock jokes wasnt really easy at all. I found most of them very stale and dont have an impact to make you laugh. Now the video will stop being an autoplay after the 13th of March.
Originally I found 14 Knock Knock Jokes that included my original one of Ruby and Guitar Hero III. Getting down to 5 was really hard to do. Lucky though after looking at couple of them I believe after telling them twice they would run stale to me. So I was able to come down to 5.
Now I did the serious messages and the opening of the video yesterday thinking I would do that easily and the Knock Knock thing would take time a long time.
Now I thought I would be able to do the video on Sunday because originally I was seeing some family but I was free to do it today thinking it would take hours but instead it took only a few minutes.
The Guitar Hero bit was very lucky to be honest. Ruby dancing at the door was pure luck. It was amazing. Everything was clicking. Im really happy that I got to do a Red Nose Day.
Sadly for people interested I didnt beat my high score on the song but hey I got the Comic Relief video done.
Now everyone have a great weekend again.
Heres another post for Red Nose Day. I have filmed half of my video today which is explaining why I am supporting Comic Relief. I will be filming the other half tomorrow. Hopefully it will be up on Youtube by tomorrow night if not Sunday. Originally I was going to do the response to Littleradge but I thought I would response to the Comic Relief video that Scott Mills did.
Here's Scott Mills video
Anyway I watched a brillant Comic Relief video from Smivadee.
Anyway Have a great weekend everyone.

Hows it going?
Right since my first Face 2 Face I have reached the decision to continue it because I had a lot of fun doing the one with BillTVMacon. Now this will not be the next video as I will explain in the final part.
I have send the questions to the next person, who I will not reveal at all even if you ask me on MSN. I think the second one is going to be a good one. I do think Face 2 Face has real potential while doing normal videos including Barry Aldridge Asks will make a return one day.
OK The second part I had mentioned this on my Twitter that I am getting a Laptop at last HOORAY. Its a Toshiba PC Laptop (I Know the Mac Fanboys/girls will be booing at me for that lol)
Now I found it on John Lewis because they make brillant guarantees on their site where I can 2 years.
Here is the link to the Laptop Im getting with the specs.
Im really excited, the reason Im getting one is that my desktop is running slower and takes 10 minutes to get onto the net which has me fed up, so I will still use it just for games in the future.
I will use the Laptop for video editing and Internet.
I cant wait.
OK my next video will be over the weekend will be a bit of a funny one mixed with a serious message. Now I wont reveal what I am doing for the video but the principle of the video is to promote Red Nose Day thats happening next Friday on the 13th of March.
I always wanted to do one like so many others in the UK do a video to help out Comic Relief.
Thestallion86 has done a video to explain what Comic Relief is about and really good explanations, so please watch this.
Now three youtubers I know (Randomprodinc, MusicfromBlueskies and LittleRadge) have come up with a brillant idea to set up a Youtube Community fund-raising for Comic Relief where you have to do a video responding to them either doing a Film/Sketch, Music Video or A Comedy/Serious Vlog.
They also got a link to where you can donation to Red Nose Day
Its here - Red Nose Day Youtube Community Donation Page
Here is RandomProdInc's video doing a Sketch of a Treasure Hunt which I found really funny and brillant sketch. It brought the whole Randomprodinc team back together which is awesome.
Here is LittleRadge's video doing a Comedy situation with not posting videos and the giving a serious message about what they are doing for Comic Relief.
Musicfromblueskies did a song called the Comic Relief song
I do believe that UK Youtube should promote these videos to help out because they are doing it for a brillant cause and they are doing what Comic Relief has asked "Do Something Funny For Money"
I will be responding to LittleRadge's one because I am a Vlogger, The video will be up hopefully over the weekend.
Please Help out them it is an awesome idea.
The Next Blog entry will include my video for Red Nose Day which will be responded to LittleRadge's one like I said.
Jacobdyermedia is also doing something for Comic Relief where he asked whether he do Waxing or Dancing for the day.
Check out his video.
OH YEAH Finally Red Nose Day does have a Youtube Channel.
GO Here and Subscribe to keep up to date with whats going on in their cause including the climb to Mount Killmanjirao I think its called.
Youtube Channel For Red Nose Day
OK Thats all everyone
Have a great week.
Hope to do an entry on Sunday
