  1. FYI Getting an error. Video won’t play on this player. Invalid Authorization Response. Looking forward to seeing Part 4.

  2. I am also seeing the error, tried it on phone (android) and on Firefox and Opera browser.. I either get the error “This video is not playable on this player” or “Invalid Authorization Response”. Good Luck am looking forward to Part 4.

  3. I’m also seeing this error. Hoping it’ll come online soon. Really looking forward to seeing how things come out

  4. Still an error. I hope it’s fixed soon so I have something to watch during my lunch break.

    That was my thought….. 8 hours ago. Tomorrow!

  5. I always use playdoh when I wanna paint something with a super clean line. Just put it where ya dont want paint, then paint the area thats clean, let the paint dry then just remove the playdoh. It works great when its something with an odd shape or depth that tape doesnt work on.

  6. Regarding the discussion about trailers that aren’t just cut from the film, The Martian (can’t say enough about that book/movie) had some awesome footage of the crew of the Hermes doing Earth PR and crew introductions during their flight to Mars. Awesome extra teaser footage filmed specifically for that purpose (I assume).

  7. Frank or Norm do you guys know any good websites for resin kits for people who are unable to make it out to things like monster-palooza or shows like that? I know you have talked about Industria Machinika and of coarse you have mentioned other garage kits that you have done in the past, but I was wanting to do more resin kits myself but I kind of have a limited scope. any suggestions on how to find awesome kits like you guys do?

  8. The conversation about what kind of kit to get where you’re not worried about f***ing it up? My response to that? Cheap. If you’re painting something where you’re not worried if it looks lousy at the end and you wouldn’t really care if you ended up tossing it. That’s where you can really play and experiment with it. You’re working on kits that are usually limited runs and thus cost more and are more difficult to acquire.

    I remember a panel at Dragon Con last year where several writers stated that they had some of their early manuscripts that would never see the light of day. Heinlein had an early manuscript that was rejected for good cause that was published after both he and Virginia (his wife) had passed. It was thought to be lost for a long time and fans can see many of the things that he later had in his works that he did well, but, “For Us the Living” is not something that I’d recommend to someone that has never read his work.

  9. If you haven’t named those yet. I like the names Mortimer and Clyde. Those were the ones standing out in my mind.

  10. I like these!

    The video crashed before I could finish watching but I’ll be back. I’ve been watching Tested on Youtube for a while now and finally caved in to get a subscription (I was hesitant before it was possible to pay with PayPal) I watch while I paint or sketch for my many projects and it keeps me company.

    I had to laugh at Frank’s comment about how he wants to do so many things, because I am so the same! And earlier this month I got so inspired by this series on YouTube that I tried my hand at re-painting toys. I really don’t need another hobby, but this was fun. I love working in 3D from time to time.

    Here is the result : https://flic.kr/p/L346Qt
