As an early Christmas gift to my father, who has been nagging me about this for months, I tried a new video location. Which, bonus, also lets you see one of my Christmas trees (I have 5). (full box office post here)
Sun’s still out, I had a few extra minutes this morning, why not? I also was up way too late last night, so my head-mouth-thinking is not ideal. Look forward to a lot of moments when I get lost in my own head for a second and you can visibly see the wheels spinning as I try to get out of a thought rut. Really, this post is a lot better.
I woke up yesterday and went “hey! What’s that strange brightness out my window? Could it be SUNLIGHT??? For the first time in two weeks?” And then here’s the real miracle, the same thing happened today!!!!!! So I took it as a sign that I should shoot as many videos as possible while I have light. “As many as possible” meaning, one ten minute video in the morning before I leave for the day, only to return when it is already dark.
Yet another disastrous video. It’s the stupid sun! Which is not coming out any more. And the only way I can get the right kind of light is if I use sunlight. Oh well, again, the content is good even if the visuals are fuzzy.
Be warned, the video quality is VERY VERY POOR. My radiators turned on, which created a persistent hiss in the background. I had to turn on a light because it was so overcast outside which gave a very odd and very unflattering light to it. But at least my voice is good and strong, so you can always hear me.
Not something worth discussing in a post, but seemed right for a video. Watch if you want, discuss in the comments.
How is this even possible? Oh, and THANK YOU to P in the comments for telling us. But mostly, how is this even possible?
You know what sells in the fast paced world of youtube? Sex! Sex and drugs! Which is to say, my hair video (the most wholesome version of sexy possible) and my initial box office video on super druggy Arjun Reddy are the two most popular. So I combined them and did another Arjun Reddy box office post this morning, while multitasking and brushing out my night time braid.
I did it! I figured out how to add a title sequence with music to my youtube videos without breaking copyright laws!!! It’s a MIRACLE!!!! Only, I can only do it using the youtube editor tool that will only be around until September 20. Oh well.
Have I mentioned that technology hates me? Or at least, doesn’t like me much? Following your notes on my last post, I tried a fast-talking excited video. And then after 3 days of trying, have totally failed to figure out how to add graphics (the other big suggestion). So put a pin in the graphics requests (unless you have a suggestion for a free program I can download to do them), and just focus on the talking head part of it.
