So Bill Paxton died this year...That's a real shame...

I remember him for his roles as the cowardly Huston in Aliens and Jeff Tracy in that shit Thunderbirds movie.
Am sad to see him go, he's brill actor that will never be forgotten.  

Now he's joined John Hurt in heaven now lets hope its not game over for him up there lol.

Rip Bill Paxton. 
So John Hurt's dead...That was a surprise..

I'll always remember John playing in Alien, The Elephant Man, Harry Potter, Spaceballs, Hellboy & Thumbelina, He's a great actor and will be missed very much.

RIP John Hurt and may Aliens guide ya to your rest, hopefully not bursting from your chest.  :P
Guys do you like Sodor's Tales?

What characters & Episodes do you like and enjoy?

Would you say its a bad series or a good series?
and what would you want to see in the series.

I wanna hear your thoughts. :P

    
Dan has to be one of my biggest inspirations in this fandom, his work is amazing and his writing is superb.

Christmas on the Slow Trains is one of his superb work.

Story:
The story is simple and easy to follow with minor details that don't spoil the plot, Which is better for Thomas in my eyes. The Banter with Gordon and the other characters is funny and adds charm.      

Acting:
The voices in this are brilliant, all of them put a lot of effort in and make the characters come alive!

Music:
The Music is done by Jake and he never sees to amaze me, mixes of Gordon's, Henry's and The Busy Station themes at the beginning really sets the tone on what's going to happen. The Gordon's S5 theme in a S2 Cover is properly one of the best tracks he's done and I highly recommend you listen to his music if you haven't.
 
Edits and Cinematography:   
The Editing is spot on, big open shots and close up shots feel natural and flows together perfectly, in addition the Crazytalk edits makes the video much nicer too. Wish I could do that lol. XP      

Sets:
The sets are visually stunning, I got a vibe of RWS and TVS from them, the snow really works too making it feel real. 

Final Thoughts:
Christmas on the Slow Trains is lovely belated Christmas present.
The sets, music, acting and Editing makes it an impressive and fun video to watch.
I love it to bits and am pretty sure everyone else did too. :)

Timothy Saves Christmas Review

By Ben Tattersall 

You know when I think about this particular fandom, I’d like to picture it as track that leads to some y points, on the right is the good stuff filled with creative, funny  and fantastic people who put time and effort into what they do. Weather its models, stories, Audio books ect.

But on the left is filled with users that make generally unfunny crap that makes you wanna mop your face and go “why?” Timothy Saves Christmas goes into that section.

When I was browsing though YouTube I came across my recommendations which had “Timothy Saves Christmas”  and as I remember correctly Timothy is a carbon copy of Thomas with that silly Joke face in a rather “Interesting” Creepypasta, he somehow became popular after that and now people write him down as if he was a real character,  WTF?

The special:

Right of the bat the sound in the special is all over the place ranging from too loud to being too quiet to hear, also The models change so many times that it made me think that whoever did that properly forgot what an SI3D model looks like. Also the lack of a wintery setup in this really puts me and many other users off considerably. 

The “Songs” are just instrumentals of Thomas Songs which have someone making up lyrics as they go along, which makes me want to listen to actual songs that shit.

The acting is piss poor, voices like Gordon and James sound horrendous and generally unsettling.

Gordon sounds like he had a spare moment sex change before this was produced.    

The running time is way too long that I fell asleep like 30 minutes in the video, what a way to keep the watcher interested in it?

And Finally “The Concept” is just terrible; Timothy, Big Boy & Bulstrode had no need to be there. The story could have easily been reworked or rewritten about Stepney helping out on the railway with witty banter included now can make the video a lot interesting  but instead you write about the silly Tomtom ripoff and try to make him a real character who just wants to be “useful”.

This is a bad idea on all accounts that should have been scrapped and replaced with something much better.

Final Verdict:

Timothy Saves Christmas is beyond a good concept or a good video.

The long runtime, unnecessary choice of Characters, Poor voice acting and uninteresting story makes it difficult to watch trough.  

If one of those fans that think Timothy is a fantastic and interesting character you properly need to get your head checked out.

Go watch Tradisrescue, Sodornwrssteam, TheScotsmanReturns, HalfBaked8, EnterprisingEngine93 & Terrer55Stepney for an idea on how to do a good concept/Story.

Happy New Year everybody!
Thank fuck 2016 over with, hope 2017 will be better. lol.

but in all seriousness.
I'd like to thank you for supporting, liking, subscribing &  Watching the stuff I do. They will be plenty of stories to tell and videos to make this year. :P

See ya in the future! :D
So on Christmas Eve we got a trailer for Alien Covenant and from the looks of things it's very promising.

I've always been a big Alien fan since I watched the first film, The characters, story and sets are absolutely brilliant and memorable.

Now as I read Alien Covenant is the sequel to Prometheus which while I liked the first film I found it somewhat confusing and disappointing. Also ending was kinda of..well...Stupid as it added nothing to the plot and was there for fan service. :P 

On to the trailer itself, from the first 28 seconds it looks scary from the ladies screaming to the guy having a Neomorph (New creature btw) busting from his back makes it feel like the Original Alien film.
Then we cut shots of Michael Fassbender as two characters David 8 and his doppelganger Walter looking around which cuts to the Ship landing on a moon properly near to LV-426 or LV-223 (Looking Visually stunning as usual)   

were Spores got into a guy's ear, a facehugger attacks another guy were a montage of people screaming, shooting, running all that good stuff until.
We see a couple having some sexy times that is until a tail appears and the Alien kills the bloke finally leading to the title Alien Covenant.

All in all Alien Covenant's trailer is a scary and usually superb trailer, I hope that the film itself will better than Prometheus and finally explain where the Aliens come from instead of going in a completely different direction. :P

This is guy is so retarded...

1: He pesters/demands people to get download links for Trainz content (ERS Characters or Private Models)

2: Makes shitty unfunny videos (which are just him filming on his computer screen.)

3: He doesn't talk or type properly and when anyone tells him this he doesn't listen and continues making unfunny after unfunny videos. 

4: And He stole a few vids that he doesn't take down.

Its Twats like these that make me hate this particular fandom, they don't listen, learn, improve or realize. They just retards that don't know anything at all...

I highly recommend not watching his shit, Block him, flag him or Report him if he starts pestering or demanding private content.

This morning just fucking tore me apart.....

So lego had decided to discontinue Bionicle for a second time......

For people that don't know:
Bionicle was toyline made by lego and ran for 10 years until returning in 2015.

Why Lego why the fuck do you have to do that? you return this and then end it? You stupid fucking dickheads....If you knew that sales were shit then why fucking bother returning it then eh?

I hope you lose fucking money like last time and go bust because you have to take away lines that meant something to many and replace with absolute shit like Nexo knights, Ninjago & Hero Factory.

Am never buying lego again after this, Fuck you Lego and everything you do....

I won't be talking to anyone for a while I'll still make videos and that but this has effected me so much that am depressed and angry. :(

you lot tagged need to tag 6 other different deviants and set ten questions of their own. have fun lol :P
Hello again everyone today am going to talk about Thomas crossovers and why they are just really stupid.

As everyone is aware some Thomas fans have decided to make crossovers with MLP, Pokémon, South Park ect and I have a really big problem with them.

1: They just don't make any sense what so ever, having a Technicolor pony wanting to have "It" away with a real locomotive or having pokemon faces on locos are just horrible and depressing.
If I asked general Thomas fans on what they remembered watching from Thomas they said "I remember good writing and brilliant sets. Not Ponies snogging faces of trains."

2: The stories with these are boring and forgettable, They put so much exposition in the stories that you're just annoyed with it what's wrong with just saying "Thomas has a job at the quarry." or "Henry's feeling ill and needed repairs." not "Thomas has to pick Twilight Buckle, Applenack, Bluttersun, Binkie Bie, Barity, Apple Twat, Sweetie Dell, Scootalong and Princess Buna at the station."  

3: They ruin the shows. people remember these shows because they were great and brill to watch, None of them don't work together because they are different.
Thomas the tank engine is about trains working on a "real" railway.
MLP about ponies with magic powers.
Pokémon about catching pocket monsters.
South Park is well South Park.

 
Summary:
Thomas fans really need to stop doing crossovers with anything, they are just not good and all they do is ruin the shows completely but its fine to give a nod to them or use the characters personals from the shows to put in underdeveloped "Thomas" characters but just don't put them together! :(
  
    

        
Wow...That was surely something, Were shall I begin:

As many Top Gear fans remember Jeremy Clarkson got into trouble a while back and the BBC decided to remove him, James & Richard from the show and replace them with new presenters we now have the bloke from T.G.I Friday show and some American from Friends, Today the first episode aired and I have to say it was really underwhelming.

The problems I have with the first ep is as follows:

1: The jokes are completely unfunny and bland, You can clearly see that they are trying hard to make you laugh but the execution of the jokes just fall flat I only laughed once with the joke of the glider being called a "Drunken Puppet" but that was it.  

2: The changes to the into and outro are just boring I remember when Jeremy says: "And on that bombshell its time to end." Proudly before the credits rolls, Now they just dismiss that and start walking up to you blabbering on about next week's ep hoping that you will watch it again when back then we viewers were left pondering what will happen next.

3: The recently priced car bits are absolutely dull especially the time laps, they got people(One that was on before and one that I really don't care for) that genially sound like they want to get off the show and get on with their life's.
That's not a good sigh.

4: The design of the warehouse feels for like Richard Hammond's blast lab and Antics road show mixed together while originally the warehouse looked like a place were cars would go for storage. Again its completely underwhelming.      


Summary:
The new Top Gear is a shadow of its former self, the bland jokes and unnecessary changes will make you cringe and fall asleep all the way through, I think the show will not last long and will fade away into obscurity never to come back again. So it looks like many fans will be watching the older episodes now instead remembering how times were simple and funny.

I never watch the rest of the new series for while.   


Score:
1/10
             
100 watches, Thank you this means a lot you are all amazing people and am glad to have made friends with you, I hope get to 1,000. XD
anyways cheers! :) 
Hi everyone, Ben here with a story about something that's scared me for life..

Back in 2015 on my birthday I was terribly ill, I was breathing heavily, my sides were hurting and felt sickly every time.
it want on for months until I was rushed to hospital in December they took some blood and I waited for a while when the doctor came in and told me that I had pneumonia and blood clots around my heart...

I was shaken up at that statement but they had some blood thinner tablets given to me to kill off the clots and it worked I was later home just in time for Christmas.

My family and friends were shocked at the news and supported me through that dreadful time, I am most graceful to them. 

Now am a lot better then back then and getting back to making videos, am just hoping I don't go through that ever again..
