Some nice pics there, Cole.

As for this being a purposeful post:

Cxwq, could you PM me an email address to which I could send you the now completed Armageddon video? That'd be great. Turns out there was more than enough footage to put together a full video (albeit a somewhat shorter one than from previous years; came out to ~7 mins). If there's another way you'd like to get ahold of it that's fine, but I figured just emailing it in a zipped file to you would be simplest.

Thanks!

I'm actually really excited for this video (props to you Falcon), and whatever pictures may come up (props to Cole and Kuhls). Seven minutes is actually a lot also, I think most of the other Armegeddon videos were under six? Could be wrong though, thanks again for the video.

Just remembered (before the video is shown and whatnot) that I needed to bring this up beforehand.

I did everything I could to make sure everyone was seen in the video. Still, Katie only filmed for one round that day (the first one after lunch) and filmed mainly from a vantage point out in the field. That being the case, some people aren't seen a whole lot (either because they had a tendency to stick to the hallway away from the grass or because they were eliminated fairly early). So I'm sorry if you (general statement) aren't seen very much in the video, but I did the best I could with what footage I was given, and everyone is in it at some point.

EDIT: Cxwq, I emailed you. It's too large to attach, though.

If it's under 10MB, send it to nerfhaven@gmail.com

If it's over 10MB, email won't work and I'll set up an FTP account for you.

Let me know.

Holy crap, it sounds like you guys had serious fun.

I just want to say that, well, I couldn't make it because my family situation kind of exploded. It was rather sudden, but there is a reason that I missed the game. Next year, I'll try hard to make it just like I did this year.

We'll let you know when we get it uploaded. Regardless of when Cx gets the FTP account set up, I'm on the internet for the last time until Thursday of this week right now. I'm unplugging my pC after I shut it off and pulling it out of the wall so I can take it down to SD with me come Thursday morning. I'll get back on then and we'll proceed from there.

*sigh* Last post from Glendora for a long time...

Okay I'm over it.

EDIT: Just finished moving everything in. Cx, whenever you get the chance to, I'll be ready to put it up.

I don't mean to pester or anything, but Cxwq, would you like me to snail mail it to you or something? I don't really know what sort of trouble it would be to set up an ftp account, but if work's being a pain or something, I'm more than willing to ship it out to you on a CD or something.

Let me know. Later!

Okay, I'm warning you ahead of time. Quality may be poor. This is the highest quality I could manage to squeeze into youtube. Any larger of a file size didn'thelp it any. It's pretty blurry at some points, and from a musician's standpoint (actually, probably anyone's standpoint) the sound quality is pretty bad, especially compared to the non-youtubeified version, which sounds great. But it sounds and looks good enough to get the general gist of it until Cxwq is able to set up something/I am able to get a copy to him. Again, Cx, take your time. But for now, this will have to do. Oh, and be sure to give it a minute or two to load (depending on your machine). It should play.



Enjoy!

If it says it's "not available", just try back again shortly. youtube's being a bitch right now...

Falcon could you put it up on your clans site, that is the only way my computer will run video.

Yep; it's there now, for the time being, as well.

In regards to bag's pictures below:

OMC's is the best. Followed closely by a tie between Daniel (last one) and Aidan, who was a first-timer (first time even seeing a modded gun, actually...) who is right above him. I think Daniel wins by a small margin, just because that shot is SO him, but Aidan pretty much epitomizes the "zombie" shot right there, so it may be a toss-up.

I just look retarded.

Hey could someone snail mail the vid to me on a DVD, it took my computer 6 hours to load it and I couldn't save it. Or post it in a fashion where I can save it to a USB Drive.

Haha that video is awesome. I don't remember the war being quite that "Effeminate", but I do think we should just play that music looped for the entirety of the next war.

I was sad that I had to leave before the last battle, that was really a great war. One of the best Armageddons yet IMO.

Now, here's the real prize. There's about a fucking zillion funny captions I can think of for this particular picture, but I'll let everyone else have a shot at it. Just so we're clear, THAT IS ACTUALLY A FOAM ARROW UNDER THERE. Sorry Ladies, didn't mean to get your hopes up. But damn, this pic is fucking brilliant. This is what I pay several hundred dollars to fly out to California and witness...


On a side note, my video is almost done, I'm just waiting on Kuhlschrank to mail me some of his photos and my Nerf documentary will be done. I'll post a link to it on here when I'm done.

I hate to bring this topic back to the front page so long after the event, but a few members (notably General Cole) were having some issues seeing the video. Regrettably, Cole (I know he's on a forced hiatus, but he can still read this), my computer isn't doing too well with burning DVD's right now (having a few software issues, I think...) so I haven't been able to get one burned for you to send out.

However, I recall seeing Groove's Chronicles of an East Coast Nerfer documentary up on google video, and recall something about your being able to view it there. If that isn't the case, then oh well. I was able to get a larger file size up on google video, so the quality isn't quite as shoddy.

http://video.google....186590620&hl=en

I hope that helps those who were having youtube issues.
