I Hit It With My Axe….. Seriously?

Warning: This post contains naughty language.

So I figured it was time I watch one of the episodes of I Hit It With My Axe to see what all the fuss was about. I watched episode four because I thought by then they would work out the kinks and I could get a better idea of what the director was trying to accomplish. I was wrong. I came away from it with three distinct impressions.

You know you'd hit it1) People are fucking idiots. Reading the comments to the video, I noticed a lot of people posting that these girls weren’t “hot enough.” Holy shit guys, get some fucking perspective! These women are actors/strippers. When you see them in a video or on stage, they have on a lot of makeup, good lighting, they’re naked, etc. This is a video of them on their day off playing D&D. That’s like saying that Salma Hayek isn’t one of the most beautiful women in the world because that one time you saw her at 7:30 in the morning at Starbucks, she didn’t look like she’d spent hours working on her hair and the only reason you were there was because your mom made you get up for work, again, and Salma didn’t even acknowledge the cool new wolf moon tee shirt your mom bought you.

Probably would've done better2) The editor is an idiot. Whoever edited this thing looks like they did three hits of meth before working on the reel-to-reel. I had at least three seizures because of the one-second cutaways. I may have had more, but I lost count after the aneurysm.

3) It’s fucking boring. It’s a bunch of people sitting around playing D&D. Whee! “I rolled a 14!” “I turn into a werewolf!” “My daddy didn’t love me!” “I’ve lost the will to live and am seriously regretting the choices I’ve made in my life!*” I love gaming at the table when I’m actually participating but watching other people I don’t know play is just… well, it’s just awful.

*Ok, the last two didn’t happen but I was hoping for it. At least that would’ve been interesting.

All in all, I must say that I was disappointed. With the amount of twittering I saw about it, I expected more… well… anything. But all I got was a poorly edited, poorly soundtracked video of a bunch of girls playing D&D. Not even a wardrobe malfunction dammit! Seriously, if this wasn’t touted as “D&D with Porn Stars!” no one would give a shit.

I also definitely don’t see what all the fuss is about. If I recall the creator of this series said that it gets better after the fifth episode (or something). Though I’m not gonna tune in to four episodes of this to find out.

Don’t watch the videos. Read Zak Smiths blog. It’s far superior than the video. http://dndwithpornstars.blogspot.com/

I thought it was kinda funny, especially when one tried to set the pig on fire (Sandie?), but I get your point: D&D, like bowling, is fun to do but boring to watch.

Well, the “better edited” episode is up now (the 5.)! Setting things on fire seems to be the main theme of the campaign. :)

So you review a series of videos of people playing D&D and criticize it for being a series of videos of people playing D&D? It pretty much states right up front what it is, regardless of any “hype”. If you don’t enjoy watching people play D&D, you probably won’t enjoy watching people play D&D..
