10 – The DELUSIONAL Detectorist After a year of metal detecting and not finding much, the new detectorist (for some inexplicable treason) turns into a wannabe Stephen Spielberg and video records every dug hole and duff find. This is often 35 minutes of boring footage punctuated by sick-making shaky camerawork punctuated by farting wind noises.
Viewers comment with pithy phrases like, “Good video,” and “I liked that,” even though they know it was crap. Unfortunately, such responses only encourage more of the same.
I guess .... then ... this is what can look forward to ? I'm already starting to show some of the symptoms ... now I'm in a race with Alzheimers ...great, just friggin' great ! Only saving grace is that I'll be able to dig the same hole 5 times and still get excited every time !
