I just want to highlight three SF video series that I’m pretty fond of.
Everyone that knows me probably knows my great love for the Dogface Show. The show done at Socal Regionals was probably every SF fanboy’s ultimate dream, featuring John Choi, Mike Watson and Alex Valle!! I don’t think you can get any more O.G. than that unless Tomo Ohira shows up again.
This is part one of the show, you can catch the whole thing at
The second show I want to highlight is the excellent series done by Zaid Tabani aka Redrapper.
It’s a great look into the inner workings of the Socal scene, and I personally like anything with James Chen in it. Even if he does praise Kobe.
There’s even footage of Oz’s own Humanbomb sparring against Daigo in it!
And the third video I want to highlight is the newest in-game video by none other than Sol-T, who was featured in the first episode of the Don’t be a Scrub Podcast. There’s nothing like some nasty actual in-game beatdown. And you know what? My matches with Sol all go exactly like that, with me on the receiving end.
Check out his insane execution here:
Time for some not so happy words.
When I was writing this post, I was feeling enthusiastic about sharing these videos that I really enjoyed. Then I started thinking about the recent content debate in the community. I’m very new to this web content business, and I want to have a clear sense of ethics with whatever I do here.
Sure, I don’t make any money from my site, but other people do. And they depend on the view numbers for their revenue. Have I gone ahead and linked to every source that I’ve embedded a video from? Yes I have, but if people view content on my site, what’s the incentive for them to actually click back to the source? Am I contributing to the problem here?
I like SRK’s model of putting up excerpts from articles and piqueing your interest. If you want to read the whole thing, you probably will click on the link to the source site. But what about videos?
What’s the clearcut solution here? Should I screencap videos and make the image link to the source site? Doing that will take much more time than just typing the youtube address in my blog post. But maybe it’s time that I should be taking.
I’m confused about the right thing to do here. Sure everybody else simply embeds videos and puts a link back. But I don’t think “everybody else does it” is a valid reason in itself.
Anybody has any thoughts?
