We are Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time, and we are back. Ask us anything!
One of the reasons we've been gone:
We are Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time! A (tutorial) cooking show on YouTube.
We are returning to YouTube… Today!! Check out the Swedish channel-trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4zc3O4Z7v8 The first new episode will be out April 3rd, and from then on, we will upload videos in a format similar to Tabletop and Spellslingers: 1st week: EPISODE - 2nd week: BLOOPER - 3rd week: EPISODE - 4th week: BLOOPER - 5th week: EPISODE - etc etc and so on! We might upload some more bonus stuff as well :)
Why are we returning? Basically, we have better routines now with our day to day jobs - making it easier to pinpoint when and where we have time to do something. We are also getting help and resources (first and foremost the kitchen!) from a local Swedish YouTube network, which is great. Destroying kitchens became a part of our show back in the day, but reason behind it was that we had no other choice (no one would let us cook in the same place twice!). Having a regular kitchen to return to makes it a lot easier for us to pland and produce videos!
For those of you who do not know us, here is the crash course:
We first started our channel back in January 2011 while we were studying for our bachelor degrees! After about one semester, our studies were just about done and we got spread out throughout the country, making it really hard to get together and cook more for you. Me and Niklas started studying at a 2 year masters programme, Tom was working as a developer, and Isak and Anders was way down south in Sweden.
During this entire time, we have frequently been thinking about SwedishMealTime, what it means to us, why we stopped making videos and the future of the show. This could potentially be a very long story, but the TL:DR version is that:
We didn’t have enough time or manpower, combining ROSMT with our studies and work.
Even if we did make an effort, it was too much work and we felt the quality of the show was suffering from it. We don’t want to compromise on that.
So why didn’t we communicate more about this? Partly because we didn’t know if this was the end, or just a long-ass break. It was probably a big mistake and it could have been handled a lot better. Anyway, we’d want to focus on the future now, and what lays ahead, with our fortunes and misfortunes behind us.
TL:DR We stopped making videos more than a year ago, but are now returning because we have jobs (making it easier to plan around that), more of us live closer to one another now (much like we did in the first episodes!), we have a kitchen to return to and we can plan accordingly! Thus our return is imminent!
TL:DR THE TL:DR We’re back, bitch.
