I loved this video, but I have a "weird" question: what was the font used at the beginning to spell Hong Kong? I would love to use it in my projects.

The music you keep using for the Borders series is not only painful to hear in its composition, but also ridiculous in volume compared to the dialogue--the part that is IMPORTANT and NECESSARY. Your taste in indie music may be too distracting and painful, and that's your choice, but the volume levels need to emphasize the voices and make them heard. Otherwise, I have no incentive to watch your crap if I can't hear what you want to tell me.
Borders isn't the only perpetrator of this terrible volume dynamic, but it is the worst. Please stop this. Believe it or not, I came to these videos for what you have to say, not for ear-grating crap that I didn't consent to or expect from the title or thumbnail.

The future is not painted in just the glow of neon lights anymore, but in the simmer twinkles of the LED and flashes of a computer screen along with the nostalgic neon glow.

It's going to be a very sad day the day that neon signs disappear for good and all we will have left are cyberpunk movies and games and city pop music to remember this amazingly beautiful *AESTHETIC* . The nostalgia is will kill so many people. 😭😭😭

Keep in mind a big part of why LEDs are cheap and bright is due to phosphors. Pretty much all the LEDs you can buy use phosphors. Neon lights could similarly use phosphors and make them nearly an order of magnitude more efficiency similar to CFL lamps.

Same reason we don't see Model Ts still running around. They're romantic yes, but we can relegate them to the enthusiasts and hobbyists. There is a place for preservation and conservation but society as a whole needs to move forward.

I think LED can also be made into the forms of traditional Chinese characters, but it will cost a little more money.

LEDs lightings are more suitable for in house lighting. NEON lights are still more aesthetically pleasing and dramatic for Signages.
