    Yeah, especially since Percy told us how much footage he had. He was a nice guy. Was great chatting with him while we got off the ship.

    Metalheads are often misunderstood. They're really nice people. Now, here's footage of them doing some freaky stuff that will make you uncomfortable again.

    and he focused on Alestorm and Nightwish. And spent way too much time on the music and not interviews and event itself.

    completely agree, I am glad the cruise got some love but that was a weak report, completely lacking in kilted awesomeness and Airy Turks, Ryan and Rab like it for obvious reasons.

    Kinda tough to squeeze everything into a 4 minute clip. Would have liked to see a longer report that did focus more on debunking the metal stereotypes and the particular people abroad the ship.

    I'm not thrilled with the piece but it could've been much worse.

    As for Percy himself, he may have been nice at times with some ppl he interviewed but was basically a completely unprofessional ... looking for a word that's not too strong... annoyance in terms of my experience with him. We exchanged enough e-mails for him to know what I had to offer and what I didn't but when he spoke to me it was as though he not only hadn't read a single word I said but that he thought I was someone/something completely other than who I was.

    His opening questions to me were basically, "So what is your background? Why did UMC have me contact you? and What is it exactly that makes you an expert on heavy metal?"

    I told him my 'background' was that I'm one of a handful of passengers who went on the previous year's cruise and whose names were given to him for reasons unknown to me and that I was in no way, shape or form an expert on metal. This took several confused minutes then I saw Kevin getting in an elevator and called him over as I figured his years of doing a metal radio show at least put him closer to the 'expert' category Percy seemed to be expecting. His first questions to Kevin were ones anyone could've answered well... "Why does a person go to an event like this or to a metal show in general? Is it the drinking, the music or the camaraderie?" It was at that point that I walked away feeling bad for having steered him in Kevin's direction :oops:

    I'm happy to hear that others' experiences weren't quite so lame but I'm glad I didn't waste more time with him and found his piece to be incredibly unremarkable and poorly edited. Not to mention, clearly rushed as he can't have been home much longer than any of the rest of us lol
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    I totally agree with this. He forgot who I was despite talking with me at length the previous day, and even (intentionally or non-intentionally) lied to me about when and where the interviews were being held.

    I don't mind that my interview wasn't used as it was pretty bad, but I am disappointed he wasted quite a few people's time. it was cool meeting Kate and Ryan though :)

    Were you the one who went after me? :D if so, nice meeting you! if not, nice meeting you!

    I don't know, I found Percy to be quite nice and in the interview purposely wanting to have us explain how we differ from the metal stereotype. Then in line to get off the boat he offered to show me the video and was kind of apologetic for not using Ryan's or my footage. He had to do all the editing on the boat and send it off before we arrived, so he didn't have much time at all.

    yup, that was me. You sounded great in your interview. I put on a weird accent for some reason for mine, semi British and semi American I think.

    Hopefully Percy does a bigger report later as I think it was otherwise a bit pointless to choose interviewees beforehand. I personally didn't find him endearing at all but that's just a first and second impression.

    Percy told me after the initial outside that he would need me again for a sitdown. He found me a few days later and tried to get me to his room. But I blew him off as he seemed annoying (and there wasn't any $$$$ in this for me) :lol: :lol: :lol:

    That is the same thing that happened to me.
    He wanted me to be in his room at 4PM Thurs.

    I find it insanely ironic that the clip of me is one of the only times I was sober and acting the slightest bit normal. That was before I found the bag deal.
    Thank god the footage wasn't me in the wheelchair. Or of me breaking two of them later.

    It was only online in their iReport section. As far as I know, it never made it to a network broadcast.
