The Mr. Dyer Saga (Commentary)
Commentary track for: Dyercentral, Ask Mr. Dyer #1, Ask Mr. Dyer #2, Ask Mr. Dyer #3, Ask Mr. Dyer #4, Ask Mr. Dyer #5, Puppy hour #1, Puppy hour #2
Puppy Hour Episode 2: Dachshunds (April fools 2013)
It was a relief to finally bring this joke to an end. At least I got to kill a character!
“Twice the length means twice the puppies!”
Puppy Hour Episode 1: Dalmations (April Fools 2013)
For once, this video was made INTENTIONALLY bad. I still cringe when I see it. At least it introduced Dyercentral’s reining psychopath, Meridale.
“The First of many episodes to come.”
Ask Mr. Dyer #5
This was my final send off to Mr. Dyer, a big april fools event with his execution at the climax. After the video went live, I pretended to delete all my videos and began promoting only the new series, Puppy Hour. This was easily my most successful april fools joke, and one which I will never do again.
“The final Ask Mr. Dyer!”
The Haunting…Sort of

A Dyer-Situation: LES MISERABLES, A Musical Spectacular
When I look back at this, I am always amazed that it came out so early in Dyer-Situation History. The idea came about during a class discussion with Rob where we muddled over the idea of doing a musical review of the new adaptation of Les Miserables. We were both fans of the show and we thought it could be pretty fun to satire the songs in a way that also gave our honest opinions about the film. The before section was easy, but for the after part we had to be a little creative. We each came up with three versions for the after, a bad, good, and neutral reaction, then used whichever one was closest. I am very happy with how this turned out, even if Rob’s singing voice is far ahead of mine and we probably should have done a few extra takes.
“In this special episode, Glenn and Rob take a horribly lip-synched look at the new Les Miserables movie.”
Ask Mr. Dyer #4
Despite being invented as a holdover show, I still had a bit of affection for Ask Mr. Dyer. This was my last attempt to revive it before giving up and killing of its host. This video is also the origin of the “Thanks for watching” tagline that became common in all Dyercentral videos.
“The long awaited Ask Mr. Dyer is finally here. Remember to leave your questions below!”
This was made as an assignment for my High School class. The task called for making a satire of a famous movie. My idea was for a Superman parody, and it’s what we ended up going with. If I recall correctly, the class enjoyed it.
“Look up in the Sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Wait…why am I so exited to see birds and planes?”
This instalment of the Extreme Series was plagued with problems so severe that it put future episodes on near-permanent hiatus (The specifics of this are talked about int the commentary). I still plan to make more episodes in the future, but not for at least a few years.
“Its sword against spatula in this latest installment of the extreme series.”
