Went to Alexandar’s hotseat this past weekend .
The hotseat was interesting... It was definitely not what I expected. Completely different style of game from Tyler/Julien/Jeffy. His game is SOOO simple. It’s like so dumb I was dumbfounded. You walk and think wtf was I doing this whole time. It’s so straightforward. Like stupid straightforward. In the beginning, I wondered if there was more going on, if there was something happening below the radar.... There might be.. It doesn’t matter.
And Alex, wow, what a patient guy. Answered every one’s question, even this old dude who wouldn’t stop asking personal nonsense which wasn’t relevent to everyone else. Have more respect for the guy as a teacher than as a PLAY-YOR (Shoutout to FINDING NEMO; you’ll have to attend to get the joke).
I’ve watched a few of his videos on youtube/RSDNation and wondered, “What the fuck is this guy talking about?” After attending his hotseat, it’s crystal clear.
As a bonus, Alex kept us entertained by keeping us upto date on a play by play text message conversation he was having with a girl he met on the first night he was in town who found out he was a coach.
Alex was VERY professional. I’ve been to a Tyler hotseat; it started 2 hrs late on both days. Tyler, I love you, but 2 hrs? Alex started on time-ish both days.
One bit of negative feedback: We didn’t do any exercises. That was our own fault, as a group, we asked A LOT of questions. Still, just to do them once or twice for practice and to have them to do on our own would’ve been nice.

If you have any questions, I'd be glad to answer them.

Any chance I can get you to send me the bonus vids?

Oh, one final comment:

Alex makes a big deal in the marketing videos about the motion stabilization tech and sounds scrubbing.... I blew it off but WOW.  IT MAKES A HUGE DEAL. 

I genuinely think you see WAAAAY more of the skill than you possibly could in a bootcamp b/c there's no way you can hear what they're saying in a loud club or even a regular bar if you're standing more than 10 feet away.  The motion stabilization is awesome; what would otherwise be headache inducing camera shake is utterly eliminated.

You are enough


That was the over riding theme of the program.  That, and the fail 4x rule.

Like I said, it's retardedly simple.  If you can put those concepts together in your head without evidence, you probably don't even need to go... But I couldn't and I bet most people can't.

Definitely worth it.

Finally got the bonus videos last week.

OMG it's like a fucking boot camp... it's too long! 7+ hrs of video??? 

WTF? I mean, wow, I'm impressed, that's a lot of video. But who has time for this?

Trying to go through them now
