Good to see he's diversifying!

He may have started out with just pixies, but he graduated to wyrms, flying frog bats, and now goblins - I think he's showing growth!

Diogenes was eating bread and lentils for supper. He was seen by the philosopher Aristippus, who lived comfortably by flattering the king.

Said Aristippus, ‘If you would learn to be subservient to the king you would not have to live on lentils.’ Said Diogenes, ‘Learn to live on lentils and you will not have to be subservient to the king.’

I wanted to see the fishing traps!

It's the continuity that makes Erwin's videos work, the introduction of a pile of stones -completely irrelevant to
what he's taping and then a moss-covered pile to show the viewer that such structures were done long ago.
Or at least, to convince the viewer that rock-pile near the river was old and hence, not of his doing.

The third small pile was just to reinforce the notion that a culture exist that remains to be examined.
Another great piece of creative entertainment!

Due to the time of year in the UK, I thought Erwin might not bother until Spring. But no...
the intrepid Pixie-hunter was out and about!

I can't sleep so I've spent the better wee hours of the morning reading through this all and watching the vids.

I'm smiling.  I think it's great.  Look forward to some more.  Funny old gentleman.

Cheers,

minusculethumbsup  And that's the key, Erwin isn't harming anyone, he's polite and in his bumbling way, sweet with a twist
of that 'Ye Olde Englishness' that's stereotyped a nation and can laugh at itself.

He makes you smile... then job done!

It;s good t see the franchise expanding, with Tom's channel. That bespeaks a confidence in the material, and longevity.

They do need to invest is a little bit of new equipment - a new microphone apparently, and perhaps a break-in period for such things as squeaky boots.

But Tom, on his channel, has the showmanship hook down-pat:







I must take exception to his video on ridding oneself of moss in the garden, however. That's just wrong. My favorite yard was a back yard I had that was entirely moss carpeted. I never had to mow it, it was always green, and it was a joy to encounter barefooted. The lowest maintenance yard I've ever had, and the most pleasant. On that count, Ton has it wrong...

Our man -who sports a Ninurta-like beard, appears once more to explain his view on how he's perceived
through Tom's editing prowess. Erwin is himself and for many, that's enough.

Our designated Pixie-Hunter is the bridge between the place where the wilderness-folk frolic and the high-tech
world of information-transmitting. It's enough to make you shuffle in your pockets!

Always entertaining!

I love how Tom is using Facebook style sales hooks to promote the channel - "This Old Guy uses one weird trick to find Pixies". What's the trick? Is it really so simple as ONE trick? Is it really weird? Can I use the same trick to find pixies? Or "You Won't Believe What Happened To The Guy Who Films Fairy Folk!" - what happened to him? How did it happen? When did it happen? Details! We need details! Inquiring minds want to know... they MUST know! It sucks you right in, like the intake vent of a jet engine!

And Erwin never changes, but is somehow always freshly entertaining! As an example, he bumbles along and sets a time limit on the new promotional video, then flat out states -in his inimitably bumbling way - that was wrong, because he doesn't want to set a time limit, and then proceeds to bumble along the same worn trail and set yet another time limit for it!

Entertainment at it's finest! No wonder the channel has managed to garner well over a quarter million subscribers.

Yes, this self-created phenomena of Erwin Saunders is very well put together and seems to have many levels
that caters for those who come across his videos.

Initially, he's offered as a mild-mannered man seeking something that may have held our attention as children,
but as we develop, the materiality aspect of everyday life demands us to leave a harmless magical world void
of going to work and paying bills and deaing with a reality that holds no such fanciful innocence.

For many, the place that Erwin wanders is somewhere we miss and wish to go back to. He draws us back to
a kinder time that may have never truly existed in our individual lives, but one many believe is a template for
a period where the harshness of being a biological entity embraces a more compassionate existence bound to
the metaphysical and spiritual.

Also -staying in the infantine paradigm, our undeveloped need to obtain this insubstantial world of imagination
forces us to seek out and capture those we want to believe inhabit this ethereal realm. However, even though
such an arrest would prove that we are something more than we believe, the success of such an appropriation
would also sully the concept by dragging it back into the rigid world we live in daily.

So we make a pact with ourselves, we take our nourishment from the quest, the hunt and self-shoulder-patting
that -even though we failed to grasp what we would need to prove ourselves right slipped through our fingers
this time, we will learn more about an intangible presence without the need for scraped-knees and bruised
faith. It's a win-win of our own making!
.......................................

Erwin Saunders -himself, emits a feeling of harmlessness and counsel at the same time. He's the go-to-guy
and yet he offers a display of someone not adept in our computerised and materialistic world. Erwin is aware
as an adult that he needs what everybody requires to live a fairly-comfortable life, but his gift comes in the art
of off-handedly assuring the viewer that a far-less uncouth dimension awaits just beyond our utilitarian world.
All we have to do is follow him.

Erwin falls, fails, stumbles and gets confused. He mildly blames himself and deliberates without the worry that
he may be wrong. Basically speaking, he physically demonstrates what would be a high-morally act to do.
If we fail at something, we brush ourselves off and try again. If we succeed in something, we look to the horizon
for the next stretch of the 'Yellow-brick Road'!
.......................................

Tom is a vital link to all of this and not just because of the representation of 'the youth'. In many stories, parables
and legends, the young learn from the old. Pitfalls and other perils have been located by those who've already
walked that track and accepting sage advice from an elder is always an extra arrow in one's quiver of experience.
Tom is the 'Fool' in the true-sense of the Tarot, a first-timer who is learning from the Magician in the pack. That
Shaman is Erwin and he sports the traditional look very well, don't you think?!

But Tom also bridges the gap of hesitation to believe in a domain of the enchanted. When the majority in Tom's
world have commanded him to accept and conform to his practical world he was born into. For him, the bills, the
mortgage and the car-payments are real, you can touch them. In Erwin's cosmos, they're merely distractions that
divert our attention from a better place.
.......................................

The entertainment value is superb and the easy pace soothes the soul in our world of supposedly dynamic and
vital information that is really unsalable and meaningless. Where Erwin wanders, our imagination runs barefoot
and for our well-being, it cleanses our palate.

You are absolutely correct.

My journey into the unknown with Erwin started out with me attempting to use my logical mind to figure out just how he managed to do those videos.

Somewhere along the line - it might have something to do with my retirement and no longer giving a shit about the bills - I lost track of that and instead just started swimming along with the flow. I got sucked right into the Faery Realm, Tir na Nog. Like so many subjects of legend going back to the Bronze Age or before, and culminating in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", I was drawn through a portal to otherwhere, an invisible doorway that I didn't even know was there until I was already on the other side of it, and once there had no inclination to look back.

Hot off the presses, dropped a mere 9 hours ago or so:

It's another trek in the kingdom of Saunders!

Today, we are entertained with Erwin and Tom involved in a more instructive video, including their personal
chats, being tracked by the beings they seek and ideas to draw the Pixies into the camera's view.

I love these!

When Tom is in the shot and he’s just looking off into space having a snack had me cracking up. I think he and I would get along well, I also have plenty of snacks when I go into the woods.

I do wonder if the woods there are really that pretty or is from editing? It just looks magical.

Six whole days before I saw Erwin's latest YouTube video and I am ashamed of myself!
In this one, our adventurer is alone and discovers items that may lead to some form of
interaction in the future!

Cheers for this latest @BIAD.

Something about this series draws me in.  Might be just the simplicity of the presentation or the eccentricity of the presenter themselves.

Certainly unique.

Kind regards,

Bally in the floods. :)

Yes, there's a realism there in his footage that makes up for the debateable subject matter!
Is it our own age that makes our jaded view on the world feel a little lighter by watching an old man bumble
his way through a modern technology and provides his juxtaposition topic? Maybe, maybe we need this type
of innocence to help us wash away the horrors and constant negativity that mainstream media bombards
us with today.

It's not just Russia that has a problem when entering other territory, the amiable Erwin is also
aware that careful steps have to be taken.

A couple of Erwin and Tom's investigational-videos passed me without seeing them.
Maybe it's the unique techniques they're using to hide from the Pixies are working on their fellow-man?!





...And Erwin creates a puzzle.
