(Christmas Donkey) Thoughts?
« on: December 19, 2006, 05:23:49 PM »
So guys, what did you think of this as a short? Was it worth one less 20 minute phone call? Let's get your feedback. (This is my clever way of seeing if I should spend my money on this or not.... even though I probably will end up buying it) ;D

   It's worth the .99 for Mike and toaster.  I'm glad I dropped 0 dollars for the video. Taped it from ABC Family and discovered they did edit out a minute for commercials but it was in Act 3 and easy to resync once I realized Mike still hadn't gotten to the point where M&J had arrived at the stable.
   Mike reacted to the one real "Debbie Downer" moment in the story just like I did. Merry Christmas, kids!!

   edit:  I tried it a second time and used the YouTube version after reading mSampo's comments and got to see the wildlife missing in the ABC Family version.

I thought it was great... Perfect choice for a holiday riff.

I don't wanna ruin it for anyone by mentioning riffs, but let's just say I feel like kicking my dog after watching it.

I thought it was hilarious as well.  Well worth $0.99...and I used the YouTube version.  I be cheap.

I plugged in the Christmas Tree, snuggled up to my wife under a blanket while snow fell outside, and we munched on Christmas Cookies while watching Nestor get the tar riffed out of his long ears. Loved every minute of it. Highly reccomended. :^)

loved it, but found out we have DVR and used that to record it and had trouble keeping it synched....  somehow I managed to get the video a minute ahead of the rifftrack after one of the commercial breaks

One of the other threads said the ABC version cut about a minute out, when Nestor is walking to Bethlehem, I think.  It was when he was walking somewhere anyway.

Tough to synch up right at the beginning (took me a few tries) but once I had it going all was well.  Hilarious-- way to go, Mike :)

Timing was definitely everything. If Mike was a split second early or late he'd be stepping on lines and the comedic rhythm would be thrown just slightly off. Once it was synced, it was awesome. :^)

Very funny.  Any notice that Mary looked like Jewel Staite from Firefly?

Just thought I'd add my two cents. Yeah, I'm a mod, but so what? I loved Nestor. I didn't realize how deserving this animated short was of being riffed until the time actually came.

A new holiday-time tradition is about to begin at my family's house...

I watch this every year, and like it a lot.  The riffing was great, timing is everything. But since it is a short one it's real quick to make you own dvd and sync it up, and that helps a lot.

The Ritalin riff had me rolling.

Fun stuff. The ass jokes were funny as well as playing up the "Merry X-Mas" everytime something awful happened to Nestor. The parodies of the songs were funny too.

I personally liked the mom jokes...does that make me an ass too?  ;D

I forget what was said exactly but something like "especially you man who killed my mom, I love you the most!" when Nestor comes back after the birth.  I laughed so hard at that.  I have to watch this one again.

  Excellent. Excellent. Not a weak riff in the bunch. I loved every moment of it.
