MaximumRD video look at ZAP! Fanzine etc......

Zap! was a fanzine I ran from 1991 to 1993, for a total of eight issues. What was your favorite issue? Looking to buy the entire set?

Rob, that's an awesome vid and it's pretty gracious of you to keep plugging this site.

You know, you've got a pretty good voice for commentary. You ever given thought to being a newscaster? You sound like you could deliver a line like "Yes, Diane, all the children died in the blaze" and still sound fairly upbeat about it. :occasion14:

Thanks Ter, Happy to do so!
@ ROB
I DO try on my videos and am fairly critical of myself, I was good in drama class though even at improv.
As for the comment about commentary yes I like doing it, thanks for the kind words as I always that my voice pitch was to high somewhat BUT did you know I do damn good impression of charcters from Pete Puma the wacky mountain lion that Bugs Bunny gets the best of to Mogwai from GREMLINS but my best impression I think is KERMIT THE FROG, I am actually hoping at some point to make some MAXIMUMRD promo videos with these characters and provide the voices lol!

I would like to add, kind of cool FYI THIS video marks my 20th video! Also I am up to my 97th subscriber (seems like I JUST did a shout out to my 50 subscribers) and very cool if you look around on Chasethechuckwagon.com videogame auction site there is a MAXIMUMRD CLASSIC GAMING AND COMPUTERS Banner thanks to my good friend So Cal Mike who should also be pugging my Youtube channel on the APRIL edition of the RetroGamingRoundup Podcast! I never would of thought all this would of started from me posting one video for fun (The Colecovision Super Action Controllers) LOL! But I believe in good Karma and that is why I plug other peoples sites and podcasts etc because it is appreciated and I think we can all help each other in the Classic gaming community. Thanks everyone!

UPDATE: FYI I have posted this at Atari Age, CDhelper, Armchair Arcade, Digital Press and of course my Facebook page and group, Armchair Arcade and CDhelper even have the embedded version so that should promote exposure.

I promoted the video in these three places. The Zap! MySpace one should get a lot of hits, as I have nearly 250 friends on that MySpace.

Good stuff, I added also Petsci Forums (related to Retrobits Podcasts) and Monroeworld forums (related to the old Retrogaming Radio Podcast) I can think of at least 3 people personally so far who have joined as a result of the video so it looks like all in all a success........
