An interview with youtube pooper, JestersOfChaos

1. why did you decide to become a sentence mixer? Did any pooper inspire you?
A: well i first started off as a meme pooper like everyone else, not dinner spaghetti memes, but like tourettes guy memes. "Lazy Pooping" as i called it in our youchew nterview. then when i saw walrusguy, he had some sentence mixing, mixed in with most of the youtube poop community, and i gave it a shot. Inspire? BenderPictures did early in my career, advice wise. for materrial you know, krobo, swish
 films, everyone else.

2. What is good sentence mixing to you?
A: it has to be like understandable at least 90% of the time. if seen some bad sentence mixers, its hard to understand and it takes me out of the whole thing. so to answer your question, my sentence mixing. lol

3. How did you become a good sentence mixer? Watching poops? Practice?
A: well watching poops doesnt really make you a sentence mixer, unless its a tutorial. if you see my earlier works, my sentence mixing was a bit choppy when i started with mainly sentence mixing poops. when i made the switch to sony vegas from imovie i started word splicing a whole lot better. so like 75% practice 25% software.

4. When making your sentence mixing poops, what are the things you are trying to achieve? Like humor? creativity?
A: well of course i wanna create humor, i wanted it to be funny. i went through this stage were i went through unused stuff (orabrush, oil spill, etc.) whats weird is now orabrush poops are poping up and i feel glad i caused it in a way.

5. Who is your favorite sentence mixing pooper? And why?
A: sentence mixing? probably mark3611. i like how he can make all those billy mays poops funny each time and its so easy to understand, it made me laugh so hard. and i gotta give flummywister credit. he is on a different level

6. Ahh, good choices. Do you use any "specail" techniques that help you sentence mix? If you do, what are they?
A: i usually have to watch the entire episode 2-3 times unedited before i start sentence mixing, so i get a fell for it, so its kinda like a ritual. thats kinda it.

7. Why do you think meme poops usually always get more views than really good sentence mixing poops?
A: youtube poops were built on memes. maybe they weren't memes then, but if you are a new pooper and u see a meme poop with 3.5 million views, you think thats the only good poops to watch. i was the same way, in the beggining

8. What are your favorite video sources to sentence mix?
A: orabrush. i will always have a special bond with oabrush, since i was the only one to do it at a point, and it became sort of like a paternal thing. besides that, i tried to poop a whole bunch of different sources, even though i have only like 9 good poops

9. What do you think is the most important thing about sentence mixing?
A: make it understandable.

10. What gives you the motivation, to take the time, to make a good sentence mixing poop? Fans? Do it for fun? Expressing your humor?
A: its fun to do and its for me. i entertain myselfwith my poops too. i think they ae funny

Alright, is there anything else you would like to say?
A: yes. why would someone think pooping the cat in a hat is a good idea? lol someone put that in my comments thinking i should poop cat in the hat for my "fans" how many fans do i have? 9?

Sentence mixing tips from YER0CKY - Advanced

In the last blog i made, i talked about what sentence mixing is, and how to do it. Now, im going to tell you how to be good at it with some tips from me and tecnhiques i use.

" I can only sentence mix when im in the editing program putting together my sentences"

False. You can work on your poop, without having a video editing program opened. In fact, im about to teach you a technique i use that gets up to 10% of my poop done before even opening my Windows Movie Maker.

Preperation 

   Being prepared for the start of our poop is very important and also very helpful. Now, I know how everyone thinks of their sentences, they think about it in their heads. Which is the way to do it. However, i know sometimes poopers have a hard time think of thier sentences. Tired, dont know where to start, and forgetting their thoughs. Well the technique i use is before i even open my editng program, i open "Notepad". When poopers think of sentences in their head. Notepad gives a different prespective when working on sentences. I open up my notepad and type in all my sentences that I think of. So not only am i hearing them with my ear, im also "seeing" them too. This also helps make changes to your poop easily, and you wont forget anything once you type it in. Getting into this habit will help save time, give you more freedom, and make you a better poop.

   Now some of you are asking, "Can notepad really help me?". Well, if you were someone who was following me from the start of 2010. Remember all those meme poops i made, over and over. Then all of a sudden, i got way better. Well i used notepad right at that time. It really has helped me become a better sentence mixer. Without it, i wouldnt be the sentence mixer i am today. Now lets get into the sentence mixing stuff now.

  
Other tips

   The most important thing about sentence mixin is that it HAS TO BE UNDERSTANDABLE. Again, very important. My rule of thumb with sentence mixing is this: "If i cant understand my own mixing, no one else will". If you cant understand your own sentences, dont use them, re-try it, or do another sentence.

   Another good tip is to try to create you own sentences. Try your best not to use sentences already in the source. Try to make some good out of it. Make it as fun as you can. Also try not to use too much unedited content. It's fine once in a while.

   If you want to have a legit sentence mixing poop. You must not use any memes. When viewers look at a poop and they see lots of good sentence mixing, but memes also. It can be the difference from a like or a fav, to a subscription. The poop should have good flow, and avoid as much choppyness as you can.

   Close that sound recorder program. To have the best sound quality, download the sources you want to sentence mix with, and dont make the poop loud. With sound recorder, it just ruins the sound quality. Make the sound as clear as you can. Some sources are harder than others to manage this.

   I notice there are some good sentence mixing poopers, but they seem like they have to upload at least once every week. This can work. But to go from good to great, poopers just need to relax and put as much effort as they can into every video. Dont stress out because you have made a poop in a week. People can wait. It takes me over a month to make about a 2-3 poop, cuz i use all the time i have to make it good as possible. So dont rush it.

Here is an example of what you should try to aviod when sentence mixing:

"My boy, this dinner is what all true warriors die for"

Try something like this insted, from a poop i made:

" I hear dinner in gamelon, is what all true warriors die for"   Just try not to use so much unedited content. Try to be creative.

   One more important thing you should know, this is a bit important too. Dont ever sentence mix, but chopping your video. The best example is by wayching the youtube poop "Billy mays hates the animals" by PostalOverkill. It's a great poop, but the video chopping is a no no.

Well thats all the tips i got for now. I hope this helps you in some way. Good luck on your sentence mixing everyone.

Sentence mixing tips from YER0CKY - Basics

I have decided to blog about my sentence mixing techniques, and show you tips on how to be a good sentence mixer, or just how to be better at it. This is the basic section. This blog will show you what it takes to a good sentence mixer. I'll basically be blogging about what i do. In the advance section, ill be very detailed and will be blogging about other techniques that i use. Some of you might find the basic section to not help out, but im sure the advanced section will. Anyways, lets move on.

Firstly, sentence mixing doesn't invole memes. This is very important to know when learning how to sentence mix. Aviod any and all memes helps witht he flow of your video, and help engage viewers into watching your poop until the end. So just remember, the less memes, the better.

Secondly, sentence mixing DOES NOT have to be funny. Sentence mixing can also be creative too. Mixing the two will get you lots of ratings and favs.

And the last thing you need to know is that sentence mixing takes a lot of effort and time. Dont waste time trying to create a sentence that you are having a hard time with. Trust me, this has killed me in the past.
Now let me show you some detail. Let me show you an example sentence mixing:

"My boy, this --Dinner-- is what all true warriors strive for --- in the morning--- "

The above example has multiple sentences mixed togehter to create a new sentence, This is part of what you have to do as a sentence mixer. However, there is another important technique that you need to know.
"Word splicing" is another common technique used by sentence mixing poopers. Word splicing is harder than sentence mixing because you need to do more editing, and sometimes this technique can take up alot of time. Let me show you an example of word splicing:

"You -peice- of- shit-"

The most simple example. Now, "peice of shit" isnt a sentence that is already made, this is where word splicing comes in. To make him say peice of shit. You have to search the words in the source, and them put them together, to make a sentence, or at least a part of one. Honestly, to be considered at least a decent sentence mixer, YOU MUST master word splicing, if you dont, you wont get any where. Sometimes you even have to splice multiple times, just to make a single word.

Example from me, "Pizza".  I get this from "Peice", and "zedla". i mix the sounds togehter to make the king say "Pizza" Again you need to be good at this to be a good sentence mixing pooper.

So to be a decent sentence mixer, you need to learn these things. Now i do realize that some people that read this already know this. So im creating a Advanced section. This will tell you all of my tecnhiques broken down into detail. I will also tell you how to start pooping, without even opening your editing program. I will be showing sentence mixing techniques that me, and other poopers like swishfilmsnic, mark3611, and Dinnerwarrior all do.

So if you are really looking to improve your sentence mixing skill, then read the advanced blog coming soon.
