Originally featured in the First Annual Maladjusted Half-Hour Halloween Special, this original short is a parody of art house films.
Because I’ve gotten requests from people who don’t want to sit through the entire 30-minute Halloween Special, I’m now posting each individual comedy sketch within the special separately. Here now is Batman: The Short Halloween.
Hi, everyone. David C. Roberson here with a bit of an update on what you can look forward to from Maladjusted Productions.
It’s been said before that we have an enormous back-catalog of material awaiting edit, and I’m proud to say that after two years, I now have the capabilities to edit these things. For those of you who are new to Maladjusted Productions, you are doubtless unfamiliar with the majority of the first season of The Curmudgeon’s Perspective or our first comedy sketch, The Drifter. These things will come to be known to you in the weeks and months ahead. I will be editing and posting as time permits me. So what could be more important than restoring the entirety of the Maladjusted Productions’ canon? Adding to it.
Jason Goss and I have been working on scripts. A couple are ready to be shot. Props and costumes are being shipped in THIS WEEK for our next three video sketches. I’m staying mum on the details, but I will say that geek glands shall be stimulated. And all while I am editing a brand, spanking-new Maladjusted Video Diary that should be up soon! In fact, the first edit is done, and is waiting sound effects and music. It’s a fun little piece that I hope you all enjoy.
COMING JULY 20th, 2011: “The Curmudgeon’s Perspective # 3: The State of Star Trek,” originally posted in March, 2007.

Whatever happened to Matt Carroll?
🙂 But seriously, go check out his music at http://www.youtube.com/mattcarrollmusic
I know there are people out there who wonder what happened to more than 50% of the videos I once had posted on my youtube account. Those videos, in my mind, were and will always be a part of Maladjusted Productions, a part of the canon of my maturation (however much of that has arguably happened) as an artist in a visual medium. For those who wonder, perhaps they will stumble across this blog post.
The simple fact of the matter is, I was stupid when I was just starting out, and I believed that it was okay to use copyrighted music in my videos. That’s the majority of the reason for so many being gone. A couple of my videos were stripped from Youtube BY youtube, and I took the others down that had any violations. The other reason is because I was more… free with my language in those days, and I no longer felt that it accurately represented me in any way.
That being said, there are loads of things in those videos, the master tapes of those videos, that I would love to have out there, and I would love to take a crack at editing those old things again. Re-posting them. I have hours upon hours of workable footage sitting on a shelf (quite literally), and as it is, I have nothing to edit with.
I have searched for free editing software with even the capabilities of the OLD Windows Movie Maker (the program I used to make the vast majority of my old videos), and freeware programs just don’t have the capabilities. Most of the time, they don’t even WORK once you’ve downloaded them. Oddly, the newest version of Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7 is less impressive than its ten year-old counterpart.
I am blessed enough to have friends with very nice editing software, but the drive to their respective residences is very gas-consuming. And they have lives and things to do on their own computers. I can’t go over to their places every time I need to edit something. Had I the capability, I would be editing every free second to get more content out to our subscribers and out to the community in general. And my computer simply isn’t able to handle even the $49-&100 dollar range of video editing software.
I’m getting discouraged. My head is telling me to quit, but my heart is telling me to keep trudging through the muck until I find dry land.

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a duplicate of yourself that would engage in all of the unsavory duties of life for you? Well, a new Mac parody video answers that very question. We’ll post the video after the jump. Continue reading
