LiveChat time! We tried to do one last week and everything burned in a terrible mess of unusability, but today things worked out ok…for half an hour, and then spiralled out of control into unusability. We’re really sorry guise. We’re not sure what’s up with YouTube’s LiveStreaming lately. We’re trying to figure out what’s wrong. We’ll try again next week.

So, for our first little pre-package opening, we’d like to give thanks to:

The Wisconsin Nasties!
Katharine from Austria
Margarita and Amelia from Israel

Again, sorry that we couldn’t do it on camera. But we had so much fun opening the packages afterwards! As did Meemers, who – what the hell – is such a rude cat. It’s not that he wants to go in the boxes, which he does, but he also insists on eating everything that we’re eating. He doesn’t do that regularly with our food, but with these boxes, he was all over us trying to bite the food out of our hands. Next time we open up boxes like that at home, we must feed him beforehand.

For the packages we opened today, we’d like to thank:

Magda from Poland for all of the awesome Polish snacks
The SoCal Nasties James, Lindsay, and Nick

For the SoCal Nasties, we started opening your package at the end of the LiveStream when the internet started melting :( I would have loved for you to see how much we’re freaking out on camera, because the art you guise sent us is absolutely lovely. Thank you!

We’re gonna try with YouTube again next week, and if it doesn’t work again I think we’re going to have to try a different platform. Does anyone have any good recommendations? I heard people mention Twitch TV. Is that any good? The reason we ask is because we used to do LiveChats at a different website, but then we brought so many Nasties over that their server melted. YouTube can handle lots of traffic. Can Twitch? I don’t know. Sorry if that’s a noob question!

Till then, make sure you’re subscribed to see us do more random stuff, like LiveChats and bizarre bloopers from our other videos. Woot!

  1. Wow, Im watching this so delayed! -shakes head- Anywhooo, where’d you get the cheesehats? They’re so cool :D

  2. So I’m just going to throw this out there – I totally think there should be an EYK read-a-long or book club type event.

  3. Freakin sake….! MY BOX!!! :O :D :D It diidnt make it for the opening!? :( :( Next time!?

    Edit: I have been wait´ning for you to open the box since 1th october… ;)

  4. You started talking about Royal Pirates then the video cut off and next thing I hear is “UKISS” and it just tears me up a bit T_T

  5. Yay Wisconsin!!! I knew right away that those hats were from a Wisconsin fan. Go Green Bay Packers!!!! (Side Note: I’m from Wisconsin)

    I would definitely love to see Meemers in action. ^_^

  7. This was probably the worst quality livechat guise :( But it was still better than none !)

  8. Youtube has been quite unreliable as of late. Many videos I want to watch are suddenly unavailable, but when I refresh it, its okay….sometimes I have to come back and watch it the next day. You aren’t alone love, I’m having similar issues, and its def. not my internet connection, since I have no problems streaming video from other sites.

  9. I second using a wired connection for this. I would also ask if there is some new wifi/frequncy type devices that you have acquired lately that might be interfering. Are your cell phones sitting near the wifi antenna or hub?

  10. For what it’s worth, what’s here is pretty great but it does have progressively larger chunks missing at the end.

    Maybe until this s/w issue gets resolved, you could try setting up one of your own cameras on a tripod rolling in parallel so that if the livechat chunks, you still have a good record and can upload that later instead and it won’t have any missing bits and won’t feel you have to keep backpedalling. So, even if the live event doesn’t work well, you still have something decent to upload and then you can work your way through the packages faster and more carefree? Just a thought.

    edit: sorry, that was kinda redundant. need caffeine……

    • They used to do that in the early days of TV when nearly EVERYTHING was aired live. In order to have a record of the broadcast they had a film camera running alongside the live camera; they called them kinescopes. It was expensive in those days to do that so sadly a lot of good TV programming exists only in people’s fading memories.

    • To get past the 12min rolling time, if your DSLRs have HDMI outs and can handle 8 bit 4.2.2 compression, could your record directly to your Macbook Pro?

    • Even a phone (with a bug ;) ) would work okay for this, it doesn’t have to be top quality. My phone is 3 years old and I can roll it for over an hour no prob.

  11. why do I hear this in Simon’s voice?? ;)

  12. Melting Internet, does that looking somethink like the scene from the Matrix after Neo takes the red pill and has quick silver crawling up him till it floods him into the real world?

  13. You guys are most welcome, I’m really glad that you enjoyed the package. :3 I’m just sad that it lagged so much and I couldn’t see your reaction to the PSY lollipop (I hope that you guys found it ;;). AND OMG I DIDN’T EAT THE WHOLE PACKAGE OF THOSE STRAWBERRY TOFFEE BALLS, i just ate one, i’m not a piggy. ;; About the origami stars in the egg, yes, I made them all (broke two nails during the process), i forgot to count them tho. And the method i used to fit them all in this egg shall stay a mystery. //does the batoost mystery head dance// OH ALSO! I’m the purple head that asked you to sign the package receipt during the polish fanmeet after party, idk if you guys remember… anyway, stay awesome! :D

  14. I was thimnking could the freezing be due to the faact that YT slips in ads and a lot of people have adblock? x x x

    • I have adblocking (for youtube – eyk itself is whitelisted) and it’s never frozen for me before, I’m actually just watching it more live with less delay. The issue in recent weeks lies somewhere else.

      I have found youtube to be EXTREMELY laggy at some points lately. Like, during the YTMA weekend, I couldn’t stream anything at all, it would just freeze, and it’s been somewhat that way randomly on a few weekends since as well. It’s not my isp, they’re next door to me.

  15. Happy Thanksgiving guise!! > . < *______*
