So for those of you who enjoyed our little video for Snowblinds, it made me realize why everyone is doing that type of "hip, edgy" editing. IT'S STUPID EASY!! Had I not had to create some custom animations and graphics and just had some template stuff to plug in, it would have gone even quicker.
I suppose that is an inherent problem in magic itself though. It's easy and it works so why question it? Why deviate from an already established path that others are doing? Allow mediocrity to wash over you and embrace the norm. Too many people assume that becasue it works for someone else, it will work for everyone else. (Hence why there are so many gawd awful self-help books on the market)
So just remember: Sometimes it's ok to take the road less traveled off the beaten path. Of course you might get BEATEN on that path, but you will learn more doing that then ambling mindlessly behind the herd.
