I absolutely love your family's sense of fun.
I know you put a warning at the beginning but you are so popular on the internet and...
Spoiler: dumb warning?
I don't suppose kids would see that and try to microwave a plastic figure inside a plastic bag?
Looks like you're having fun with the girls and they are growing up so fast!
How do you like the new house? It looks like it's huge!
Thanks for posting these Bob
Thanks, we have been loving our new house! It's a great place to shoot videos because there are so many rooms and it's a lot more open than our old house. It's a little overwhelming to keep clean with 2 kids and 2 pets, but we try.
I did have some second thoughts about the limited microwave oven use in the video, but the tone of the video is light and jokey, and there is that warning about getting parental approval at the beginning of the video, and we have done other recent videos where we give pretty strong warnings about not using a microwave without a parent. I can only cover so many bases before it becomes oppressive to the video.
We're always wondering what some poorly supervised kid might do based on what's in a video they see--I can see why SK books occasionally get sucked into this sort of controversy. On one hand you don't want to strangle yourself creatively, but on the other hand you don't want to be reckless, especially when having a young audience, so you try to find ways around it. For example, we had another video where Jillian had to turn on a circuit breaker to restore power to the house, but we didn't show it happening on screen because we worried kids might try it.
Much of entertainment centers around transgressive or unacceptable behavior, after all, people enjoy watching an artificial controlled construct of it because they wouldn't do it in real life. We've all seen far more people getting killed or hurt in movies than in real life, for example--look how many kids grew up in the 50's with sanitized Westerns seeing tons of cowboys & Indians getting shot with no blood. I don't think that's a wholesale good thing, but I don't think it led to lots of kids going out to shoot each other, either. But that's another issue.
The sad fact is, there is much worse stuff on the internet and so many parents seem to use the internet as a babysitter for their kids. I'm pretty comfortable with what we've done but nothing is 100% safe. I know some parents hate us just because we show kids eating (gasp) CANDY!
Just keep it "doll in the family" !!
Hey guys, new Evil Doll video went up on Sunday...this is a pivotal episode as the Evil Doll talks (yes that is my voice)! And we find out what it wants. Hope you enjoy!
How did you create that doll?
We had it hand made by someone who specializes in ventriloquist dolls. It was not cheap but we've more than recouped the costs.
Thanks for such a thoughtful response fushingfeef
We ended on a cliffhanger last week, so here's the newest episode of the Evil Doll story!
Dang, Feef...how many rooms are in your house? Who owned it before you guys? The Carringtons? Lol
But seriously, great video. Do the girls look forward to doing them? Do you have bloopers? I bet you all have a lot of fun making them.
I haven't just yet watched this most recent video but am looking very forward to it, and that house is Massive and Gorgeous indeed!!! Does it happen to have any haunting history? If not you guys are hooking it up with the spooks! Its so awesome, don't ever stop!
Thanks guys! We have fun making the videos, most of our bloopers are just flubbed lines, although in this one we had some silly moments during the fight scenes. It's just so hard for us to maintain seriousness for very long. These videos are a great creative outlet for us all.
Thank you for the compliments about our house! Although it looks fairly unassuming from the front outside, our house is a beast, nearly 6,000 square feet if you count the unfinished basement, plus there's two outbuildings, a sun porch and a 3-car garage for another 1,200 square feet or so. Counting the rooms in the basement, garage and pool house, I counted 26 different rooms in and outside the house overall. I've tried counting the number of doors a few times but I've given up, I think I would need a diagram or spreadsheet. It has 5 bedrooms and 5 bthrooms, 3 walk-in closets, and a huge unfinished but usable attic. There's also a nice in-ground swimming pool, deck and gas fire pit, and an acre of lawn with over 20 trees. My wife and I have come a long way from our childhood's cramped houses and tiny yards, we never take it for granted.
No hauntings that I'm aware of, it was built in 1998 and I think we're the 4th owner that has lived here.
I'm trying to catch up I had missed this one, Bad doll! How creeeeepy, she seems so familiar to me. I love bad dolls. Excellent storyline, very clever.
not my thing - hate them, ever since BARBARELLA scarred me for life, but i had to chuckle because maddie wrote a story with creepy ass folks in it - and asked me to look !
Creepily lovely, nothing can stop the evil doll, she must live! I'm glad shes coming back for a future 'run through the house' (one of my favorite parts!!! na na na na ) and cant wait to see what she does next. Bravos to your beautiful and talented daughters, and their seemingly mild mannered dad who jumps in there and really possesses what becomes the evil doll quite effectively!
The dolls don't want to hurt you they just want to play! I got something for you
Spoiler: its in here
- we are not amused maddie!
that bloody blue rinse gave me nightmares !!!!
...and spoiled all my Barbarella fantasies
ooops, I meant to give you
Spoiler: THIS ONE
all she wants to do is play!
