HUGE DEAD MEAT ANNOUNCEMENT – You don’t want to miss it!


As of Wednesday this past week I have left my job, and I’m going to be doing Dead Meat full time. (Dead Meat intro music) Okay guys, this video is gonna have a lot of details about how this happened And what this means for the channel going forward, so just bear with me. Before we get started, I just want to say that this is- I can’t believe that this is actually happening Being a full-time youtuber is something I’ve wanted to do for literally over four years Starting with my other channel, Practical Folks Check it out If you haven’t already The fact that it’s actually coming true finally, it just- I-I can’t believe it I can’t even wrap my head around it It feels like I woke up from a dream and the dream is still going on and it’s a really good dream I’m gonna explain what this means for you the viewer and the channel going forward, But first, let me explain how I came to this decision Now, I’m sure a lot of you are looking at my Patreon and wondering what’s going on Because clearly I’m only halfway to my goal You might be wondering how I’m doing it with the goal only halfway there Or if that goal was bullshit to begin with It wasn’t, that’s a realistic estimate of how much monthly income I need to survive out here But, I also realized that if I want my channel to get really big, I’m gonna have to take a chance at some point And I think that the time is now I think the only way to expand this thing and have it be bigger for you guys and for me is to do it full-time and just take this risk Thankfully, I am getting some YouTube ad revenue, so that helps me out as far as income goes But if you follow me on Twitter you’ve probably seen me bitching about YouTube demonetizing my videos all the time because they can and they do And that’s why YouTube ad revenue isn’t that reliable of an income. At any given point, YouTube can just age restrict or demonetize my videos And there’s nothing I can really do about it It’s happened to a number of my videos, and if it keeps happening, it’s gonna inhibit my ability to do this as a job That’s why I still have my Patreon, and if you still want to contribute that’d be great And that’s why I’m gonna be trying to sweeten the deal for patrons, too. You already know that for $3 a month, you get full-length commentary tracks for movies on Netflix by me, Chelsea, and usually a special guest Well, because I’m gonna have so much more time now, I’m gonna try to double that to have two commentary tracks come out every month for the $3 and up patrons Also, and this is a promise I made a long time ago Patrons are going to decide the next big series I cover And this can apply to you too! Even if you’re not a patron yet You have a couple of days to sign up before the December processing goes into effect Any patron who is successfully processed for December, even if it’s for a single dollar a month, guys, Gets the vote in the poll on what big franchise I cover next This is just a way for me to thank the people who have supported me this whole time And who have helped get me to this point In the future, I’ll have polls for my entire audience, not just the paying ones Cuz it really means so much that you guys have been supporting me like you have Holy shit. I’m so excited guys. In any case, sign up now on patreon.com/deadmeatjames Will get to vote in the poll for what series I cover All of those are options. Any of them are options! And you can vote if you’re a patron Hell, you can even sign up for a dollar in December, vote in the poll, I don’t care man. That’s cool. Which will probably be what, February, maybe? Obviously, this means a lot of changes for the channel, but I’m gonna start implementing them in January. I’m gonna use the month of December to just kind of catch up with the life I’ve been missing for the past
six months That means cleaning my apartment, going through mail, seeing friends and family, sleeping Oh. I’m gonna get to sleep! And that means a lot of changes Now, that may not mean two Kill Counts week I’m definitely gonna be trying different things and seeing what works About what you like and don’t like or have suggestions for I’ll finally get to do more ranking videos like all of you asked for I don’t care man. That’s cool. I’m not gonna do Halloween, then immediately start on Nightmare, Baby, you gotta save some for the future. You gotta leave them wanting more But it will probably mean less waiting for them to come up. However, I might be looking into Twitch as far as the gaming livestreams go In fact, she just badgers me every time I see her to make the switch to Twitch And finally, I just have one more note Oh. I’m gonna get to sleep! I know that the Internet can feel kind of Wild-West sometimes But, on my channel, I really want people to feel respected and not feel harassed The point of this channel is have fun and celebrate horror That’s gonna be more difficult that they don’t feel welcome Or if they feel like they can’t say anything without getting attacked in the comments That’s why if you leave comments with personal insults, or using slurs of any kind, I’m gonna hide your comments from the channel I’d really appreciate if you guys, the fans, help self moderate this And tell them that that kind of attitude isn’t welcome here from you guys or from me This is definitely gonna be a learning experience for all of us as the channel grows Don’t tell people to kill themselves. Don’t use slurs. Again, please don’t use slurs. You’re better than that people. Prove to me you are I’m also gonna be more willing to cover huge franchises, but please don’t expect them all back-to-back I don’t think it’s fully gonna hit me until Monday comes and I don’t have to go into work And instead I get to stay home with Chelsea because she works from home, too And I just get to figure out how to make this channel better for you and me And work on this stuff before work and during my lunch break and come home and do it And like, oh I’m so excited, and I hope you guys are too. If you’ve supported me just by being a subscriber or by watching my videos or by leaving comments and engaging Thank you so much, man. It means so much to me that the stuff that I’m making is- is resonating with so many people And that you guys appreciate my humor and my outlook and my perspective on these horror movies That, obviously, all of us care about so much Let’s find new ways to celebrate horror and to just have fun. So I’ll be seeing you around on the channel more frequently than before because, Now I’m going to be able to have a life and this channel, and it’s all- it’s all because of you guys And you may feel like you can say whatever you want without repercussions So just to- just to give you guys a little taste of what extra Dead Meat content means And until those videos guys, I’m James A. Janisse and this is Dead Meat And to get new people into horror who might not have otherwise liked it That’s gonna be more difficult that they don’t feel welcome Or if they feel like they can’t say anything without getting attacked in the comments That’s why if you leave comments with personal insults, or using slurs of any kind, I’m gonna hide your comments from the channel I’d really appreciate if you guys, the fans, help self moderate this In other words, if you see someone being a dick just politely respond to them At any given point YouTube can just age restrict or demonetize my videos You already know that for $3 a month to get full-length commentary tracks For movies on Netflix by me Chelsea and usually a special guest I’m gonna try to double that to have two commentary tracks come out every month for the $3 and up patron Also, and this is a promise I made a long time ago, And who have helped get me to this point. But right now, I just want to thank the people who have stood by me this whole time And it’s the reason I’m here. able to make this announcement video. And again anyone who signs up and is properly processed for the December Patreon Do you want Halloween? Nightmare on Elm Street? Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Saw? And then cancel your subscription before the January processing comes But only patrons will help get to decide the next huge series I cover That’s the other thing, let’s talk about what this means for the channel going forward But, after that it’s gonna be 2018: Dead Meat, baby! First off like I have always promised, you’re going to get at least two videos a week Sometimes it will be, sometimes it’ll be a different thing And on that note, your feedback is very valuable so please feel free to leave comments and send me emails This is definitely gonna be a learning experience for all of us as the channel grows Like the Scream movies, the Child’s Play movies, any franchise I cover, I’ll try to do a ranking for Then immediately do Final Destination, then immediately do Texas Chainsaw Massacre I’m also gonna be trying to do more livestreams. my good friend Betty red has had a great time on Twitch and she really recommends it So I’m gonna look into that see how I like it. See how you guys like it. We’ll figure it out man as the channel continues to get bigger and the community continues to expand And you may feel like you can say whatever you want without repercussions And to get new people into horror who might not have otherwise liked it In other words, if you see someone being a dick just politely respond to them Yeah, other than that, I don’t really know what to say, guys Like I don’t- I don’t have to- I don’t have to wake up at 5:30 anymore and go to work And thank you so much, even if you’re not a patron Like obviously, I wouldn’t be here doing this and about to be embarking on this amazing new part of my life without you guys watching this channel. So let’s just keep doing that, you know. Let’s just- Let’s just keep doing this. There’s nothing else I can say except ‘thank you’ And then, of course we’re still gonna follow the Kill Count schedule for December that I laid out in an earlier video
