I get it!

I was reading a few comments today referring to the recent Meteor tutorial. A few people kept quoting me

“I’ll hit the letter SIX”

It was a mystery until I realized SIX is a number! What was I thinking

You guys are six obsessed.

Ho ho..ok bye.

Andrew, you must be close to one of the most popular okes on the internet. I think Oprah should have you on her show. I just opened this blog, refreshed the page and there were suddenly 10 posts. ha ha. Good work with the tuts, it's awesome that someone has taken the time out to really explain what's going on. Have a sickz evening. (Thought i need to make some mention of six) :/

September 20th, 2008 @ 10:39 am

September 20th, 2008 @ 10:53 am
Hit "key" 6 would be a better option

That's right up there with the frequent threats"I'll Hit U"...
September 20th, 2008 @ 11:22 am
My duck swallowed my keys 5 to 0. Is there any other shortcut?

Andrew, I learn so much from you! One of your best tips ever was that the "Home" key takes you to the beginning of a timeline. I was wondering if there is a shortcut that can take me to the end of the timeline?
September 20th, 2008 @ 11:23 am
Speaking of faux pas, me and my friends always have a good laugh when people say, "Ok, now pan UP and tilt LEFT."
September 20th, 2008 @ 11:36 am
Ehi Andrew you are great! But i've bought Cinema 4D couse i've a MAC, please use also Cinema 4D for your tutorials!

I simply assumed you had an assistant named SIX, and you were ordering him to hit the letter.

"Hit the letter, SIX."

But that's just me I guess.

another leg and fell.

Well I know a guy who nailed his foot to the floor, spent the rest of his life walking in circles.

What matters is Knowledge and the cool information that we get from your tutorials.

(letter SIX)or(Key SIX) makes no different.

God Bless you.

September 20th, 2008 @ 2:01 pm
lol that's funny. You know, I caught that and just thought it was just part of your humor. Didn't think anything of it otherwise. Awesome tutorials btw on those. The final fx look awesome and it was surprisingly easy to get done. Good stuff man thanks Andrew.
September 20th, 2008 @ 2:27 pm
hi andrew. thanks for great tutorials and and products. just wounder if you could put your presets up for download again, seams like the link has dissapered, or im just searching to much. those with gradient, day for night, reflection and after shake.
September 20th, 2008 @ 2:37 pm
Andrew you said you don't walk up to people and say "Hey whats up, Andrew Kramer here...", but when you do introduce yourself, does the music play in the background? :) I found that hilarious :D

Haha, it didn't hit me til I read just carefully. Man that's classic.

Not only that I answer my phone when people call just like you do the intros to your tutorials

"Hey wassup, Vick here, what can I do for ya?"
September 20th, 2008 @ 3:34 pm

September 20th, 2008 @ 5:36 pm

Oh Andrew... :P
September 20th, 2008 @ 6:19 pm
It might of been a New Zealander who made the post... They pronounce the word six as sex.
September 20th, 2008 @ 6:20 pm
Six in the city - hy not make a series - Ditto Noel

Doug - Aussies count to 'sex', New Zealanders count to 'sux'.

It does make for entertaining everyday conversation....
September 20th, 2008 @ 9:34 pm
Aussies don't count to 'sex', New Zealanders do. Ryan must be a kiwi.
September 20th, 2008 @ 11:24 pm
You bet I'm kiwi - And proud to say we say 'sux', and 'fush and chups' et al. Brendan is probably right though - Aussies tend to say 'seeks'

None of which are letters, of course :)
September 20th, 2008 @ 11:28 pm
PS - I do have to say though, that David Tua (NZ boxer) has the proud distinction of being on celebrity Wheel of Fortune, and when asked for a consonant, replied "O for Awesome (or perhaps oresome)".
September 21st, 2008 @ 1:49 am
Heres a quick lesson on the Kiwi Accent.

P.S I'm an Aussie.
September 21st, 2008 @ 6:03 am

September 21st, 2008 @ 5:02 pm
To be a pain in the @$$ here, six isn't a number either - it's a digit.. :p But Andrew: Thanks again for 2 amazing tutorials!
September 21st, 2008 @ 6:31 pm

September 21st, 2008 @ 6:32 pm
P.S. thats just me being an @$$ too.
September 22nd, 2008 @ 1:25 am
