There’s a conspiracy to clog up Videoblogging Week 2006.
Malcolm and Singleton’s mexican standoff. Also the last cat video I’ll be doing for a while, as the other cats in the street have gone on strike over the favouritism I’ve recently been showing to Malcolm. They say he’s only doing it out of sympathy.
Shoot video, put it online, hope people watch. If it weren’t about the audience, it wouldn’t be on the web. It’s not about the media, it’s about the me, duh. If we change the world at the same time, then that’s an added bonus. Causality. Deal with it.
I rarely shoot me, for me, but this is my 150th video, so please excuse me while I indulge myself with my first 99 or so videos.
The song “One day” is by The Jones’, a Canberra band from 1984. I think I have one of only 20 copies of their EP, which I ripped from vinyl a few years back. Not one of the better songs on the EP, but appropriate. Saw them live a couple of times, when they travelled up to Sydney. Another great record, lost in time.
One day, everybody will be happy… believe me…
I’m not a big fan of Christmas and New Year’s, in case you couldn’t tell, so I spent time at home with Singleton. He wasn’t particularly happy about it.
This video is part of a backlog from stumbling into the twelve days of Christmas for the last… ooh, twelve days or so. I just put together the first day of Christmas one afternoon because I had some spare footage I couldn’t think how to use, specifically the police and the posters, which I shot on Christmas day while walking around my local deserted area. Stupidly, that meant coming up with a new one each day, without realising how difficult the higher numbers were going to be. Anyway, what’s done is done. The amusing thing is, amongst all the video I spit out, especially all the what I think is interesting stuff, it took a parody of the twelve days of Christmas to bring in the next bunch of viewers. Yum, just in time to piss them off!
This coming week I’m editing a non-Internet project anyway, so the backlog will help keep the vlog active at least. I also have a full version of the twelve days, which I’ll post next month, once everyone has forgotten about it, and a few other interesting surprises over the next few weeks.
For those following my exploits for quite a while, back in May I rode my motorcycle from Sydney to Melbourne for a videoblogger meet up. On 31st May, half way there, Singleton and I found a nail in the rear wheel. Well today, 7 months later, I finally had the nail removed. No idea why I’m mentioning it. Just to conclude the story I guess.
Where do all those hours go from daylight savings?
Singleton is the biggest threat to the music industry.
I just realised that this shows what happens to white pillows in my house. I don’t always sleep with white pillows, but this is what happens when I do. Although if I hadn’t just mentioned it, maybe you wouldn’t have noticed. Oh well, too late now.
I’ve had some comments from people who haven’t seen my earlier videoblogs, about the history of Singleton. If you want to see what else he’s gotten up to, then my site actually has a Singleton archive (and a video archive if you’d like all my videos). But don’t show him too much attention,
he’ll get a bigger head than he already has. HEY I SAW THAT YA BASTARD PEOPLE LIKE ME SO GET OVER IT! JUST CAUSE YA GOT YOUR OWN VLOG YA THINK YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING. STUFF YOU RICHARD, JUST STUF YOU.
Maybe not the prodigal son, but he seems to be having more fun than I am. Yes, Singleton is back.
The last video from Batemans Bay, and this time Singleton came out to have a look, instead of sleeping all the time. Well, the second last one from there really, but you won’t know the next one’s from there, so I’m not going to tell you it is.
