I did this once before after the Vimeo move, but that journal's title is a tad too obscure for a casual browse. To date, almost every video I've posted online, save two that have not been publicly screened and one test demo that will be retailored come official release.

Password to all is 5tr[at]v!n5k3, where [at] is @ because dA wanted to be Twitter and I don't know how to force plain-text.


A Force of Nature [2009]

Music video I put together by splicing "Meet the Scout" after I realized what the song was sampling. I forwarded it to the artist but never heard back, something that probably kept me off YouTube since when I started the Downfall Parodies the next year it was the middle of the Constantin Copyright War, and I went shopping for alternative hosts. This was originally done in Windows Movie Maker and remastered in 2013 when I first aired it publicly; aside from better picture quality and minor adjustments to clip lengths, it is practically identical to the first cut.

Red Alert Retrospective [2009]

A nostalgic look back at the Command & Conquer: Red Alert series by Westwood Studios... and RA3. Inspired by/an update to this video by 3hish, which was made before Red Alert 3 was released. It was remastered in 2014 as I transitioned my work from Sony Vegas Pro to Adobe Premiere Pro, but I may revisit it again since one of the source files must have extracted improperly (RA2 intro audio/video is slightly out-of-sync).

Hitler wants an update on DYOS [2010]

My inaugural Downfall Parody, and the first full-motion video submitted to DYOS, lampooning what would tragically become my schedule's spiral into oblivion. This and the proceeding parodies were originally made in WMM, and remastered in 2014 after figuring out a good caption technique in Adobe.

Hitler learns Himmler's comment on DYOS [2010]

Downfall Parody lampooning certain overtones in TaniciusFox's comics... and this before I discovered the full extent of his furversion. ;p It's also a totally accurate summary of what my planning was like in 2010–11, as I was handling not only my comics, but mailing out scripts to my colleagues for scenes involving their characters.

The Audit [2011]

Downfall Parody based on correspondence with curtsibling that year, and spotlighting what I call the "Wasted Month" of March 2010, which was when my schedule started to derail in earnest. At the meta level, it still amuses me that Hitler's gone from outside spectator to in-universe comic collaborator, and that the Soviets constitute my Upper Management. ;) The original deadline has clearly passed, but I still have plans to follow this up as a Gmod-heavy animated comic.

Downfall of IOT [2012]

Downfall Parody aptly drawn from Imperium Offtopicum IX, in which I played as the Downfall crew. This was the only video parody I produced during its run, although I spoofed several of the other scenes in roleplay text. This was the last video project done (at least initially) in WMM; the second half was made through effects in Sony Vegas. Further underscoring the gang's contempt for the Fourth Wall, this video confirms they exist in a meta-universe above both IOT and DYOS. GenSamus took personal offence to the point of declaring vendetta on all Downfall Parodies, to which I simply reply...

Oodachlivih Sina [2012]

Russian: "Fortunate Son". If we hold the Afghan War as Moscow's Vietnam, and the film 9th Company as Russia's Full Metal Jacket... well in lieu of figuring out if the Slavs even have a CCR counterpart, I made this. This was the last video created in full in Sony Vegas before I decided it was too unstable and moved everything to Adobe in 2014.

Gettin' Jungledyret [2013]

Parody music video-cum-montage retrospective of the first two Jungledyret films. A product of true happenstance, I came across a short GIF from the second film at the same time "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" was playing on the radio, and in something similar to Myth Noir in DYOS, an idle diversion blew up into me binging the whole franchise. I consider this one of the best things I have ever produced. See if you can spot the inspiring sequence.

She Loves You, Jungledyret [2014]

A sequel of sorts to the above. I don't usually push a ship, canon or otherwise, but this series has the most overtly romantic coupling I've ever seen in a kids' film. Danes are crazy, yo. =P

El-Thorvaldo
What schedule?
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Salutations, dear visitor! I am El-Thorvaldo, alias Thorvald of Lym, or simply Thorvald. In whatever spare time isn't consumed by computer games, I draw cartoons. I've been doodling since before I was in school, and while I will probably never make a career out of it, it's a hobby I enjoy and continue to improve upon. I've been told I am also a gifted writer, although I have yet to complete anything worth formal publication. The common topics of my musings include comedy, war and geopolitics, and the fantastical/supernatural, which when taken together have provided the foundation for a number of projects over the years.

Those that know me, know me over at CivFanatics as one of the lead contributors to and de facto boss of the collaborative comic, "DRAW Your Own Story". I'm also an on-and-off participant in the "Imperium Offtopicum" geopolitical roleplaying games likewise hosted on CFC. Most of what I showcase here has to do with one of these two subjects.

Nah, FNaF World aired with a game-crippling bug and he released the patched version for free. He genuinely seems to make these simply for the...
