Ponderings from a Procrastinating Prognosticator

My Application to the Evil League of Evil

Posted by samatwitch on November 11, 2008

I just realised that I hadn’t posted a link to my (rather lame) application to the ELE.  Since I did not have a webcam or a video camera, I did the application in PowerPoint and then someone shot it for me so that I could put it on YouTube.  That’s right, I actually have something up on YouTube – and it was ridiculously easy once it was filmed!

Here’s the link.  There is sound on the other short videos I have up that I took on my camera.

I am under no illusions that the application will be one of the finalists – the Dr. Horrible gang are picking 10 out of 700+ applications to go on the DVD – but I had fun doing it.  There’s no music and the visual quality isn’t the best because it was filmed from a computer screen, but my friends like it.

I didn’t even get the application in by the deadline, which was midnight.  I had thought I couldn’t apply since YouTube doesn’t accept PowerPoint, but one of our BC Browncoats offered to video it for me.  Unfortunately, my e-mail went into her spam and she didn’t get it until the next day.  I posted it to YouTube and then sent the following letter to the ELE.

Dear Mr. Bad Horse, Sir, and esteemed Members of the Evil League of Evil,

As manager of The Great Radish and Little Rutabaga, I most humbly apologise for the lateness of this application and fully understand if it cannot be included (since you have 500 others to view), but GR and LR are fearsome in their anger and evilness and I dare not tell them that due to lack of a video camera, webcam or other technology, I could not convert their PowerPoint application into a format for YouTube.

However, I did submit the application yesterday to the secretary of The League, EvilWorldofHiglet, who offered to videotape it for me.  Alas, technology – usually my friend – failed me once again – and the file landed in her spam folder from which she recovered it only this morning.  Please protect me from the wrath of The Great Radish and Little Rutabaga, who will surely wreak evil upon me for this (hopefully not fatal to me) transgression.

Here is the link should you be so inclined to watch the application.

Yours with great respect and deference,

Samatwitch
Manager of The Great Radish and Little Rutabaga

And here is the letter of support the ‘secretary’ sent on my behalf.

Dear Bad Horse,

I can confirm that the manager of The Great Radish and Little Rutabaga did send her PowerPoint to be converted yesterday (in time for consideration for the competition) but it went into the Spam box so I didn’t notice it until today. I trust that this will not invalidate her entry to the ELE.

Regards,

WorldofHiglet
