Update: Episode 1: Rebel Spirit has been leaked and can be streamed from this blog.
As of right now, I know of three people who recorded the first episode of Book 2 at Comic-Con. Out of all three, there is only one who remains relevant as she will be uploading the episode tomorrow. This person is known as KorraSpirit, the current most popular Legend of Korra YouTube uploader. I spoke with her extensively today and she was sort of giving me updates on when she would upload the episode. She’s a very kind person who was just a little frustrated by the pressure, hence the reason why I kept telling people not to bother her.
What’s basically going to happen is tomorrow at 12 pm British Standard Time, she will tweet the download link from her Twitter so people can download the episode. The catch is that the link will only be online for an hour before she will take it down. The reason why this could make things difficult for all American readers is because 12 pm BST is pretty early depending on which time zone you’re in.
I’m in the East Coast so I won’t get the download link until 7 am. On a normal occasion, I’d tell all of you to not worry about going through the trouble of downloading it because I’d have it on the blog upon it’s availability. Unfortunately, this isn’t a normal occasion.
I’m currently on vacation and I’m writing this blog post on my phone while I wait for my Pizza to come. Waking up tomorrow at 7 am and getting to a computer will prove to be difficult – maybe even impossible. That being said, I wanted to apologize in advance if I can’t get the episode on the blog.
I will definitely try my very best, but I’m writing this because I don’t want all of you to be disappointed in me if I don’t have the episode up tomorrow morning. I know some of you may still be disappointed, but to that I’d like to reiterate that I’m truly sorry.
If the episode isn’t on here tomorrow morning, that will be a sign that there was absolutely nothing I could do. I’m already researching ways to download the video to my phone, post it on YouTube and blog it, but because I don’t have a link to test the download, I’m not sure if it will work.
Covering Comic-Con through my phone was hard enough. Getting this video on the blog through my phone may be impossible.
When I get home, I promise I will go through all my contacts to get the episode up for all of you. But until then, enjoy Rebel Spirit if you get a chance to download and watch it tomorrow. I’ll be back this Wednesday.
