College Introductions.

I took my camera to college again today. I didnt feel as awkward filming this time as I did last time. (and that was outside the college.) I think this is just becoming another daily routine for me. In a few months time, who knows what the videos will be like? Hopefully I havent messed up on the project by then.
This video stars me, Kai, Stefan, Jamie (Camera shy?), George, Daniel, Chris and Thuin. (in that order) Tomorrow should be a good day and a good video. Check back then!

The New Address

I decided to buy today. ( was twice as much.) You can still use the old address and the RSS feed is still the same. It's just a different way of getting here.
I was going to post a video of bits that i didnt use and i also have a video of me messing about with a guitar. but i wanna sort the sound on them first as they're both pretty quiet. Tomorrow will be the last video of january! That's a full month. It really doesnt seem like i've done a month's worth of videos. I've actually checked twice to make sure i havent missed a day. I'll add a information page later, which will have info about the project, me and some FAQS.

Nice Weather.

So i get out of college today and i think 'damn, I have to film outside today.' and the rest is history...
well, not exactly. but it sure was the fastest video i've made. So tomorrow im going to some seaside place for the day. in england. Great. I better go find my shorts and sunblock. An easy day for making a video though.

Attempted Afternoon

Im losing it. I couldnt think of anything to film today. i had the whole day off and a friend to help film, but we both couldnt think of anything to do. This is what i could get from the stuff that we filmed today.
This was meant to be the second part to the morning video, but i dont really wanna include this now. I really need to start writing my video ideas down. I come up with alot when im at college. I have so much to do tonight. I still have a dvd to watch that i rented from Blockbusters yesterday. I should have some better things to film next week. One is where i go to london. that should be good.

Today's video is based on an anonymous comment I got for the insanity video the other day. This should answer that question...
I'm tweaking the look of this place a bit. I suck at doing my own sites. Anyone elses, it turns out ok. It's just a thing that i never get right.

A Tea Time Mishap.

So Ryanne asked me a while ago if it was true that there was a 'tea time' in england. where people drink tea and so on. I said i didnt really know and asked my parents. My mum told me yeah it was between 5pm & 6pm...or something like that. So today's video is based on this.
I dont think my parents get that i really do have to do a video EVERYDAY. Even though i've mentioned it a bunch of times.

I'm Not Crazy. (I Promise.)

A few commenters think im crazy, insane, 'the UK's next big serial killer' etc. So i thought i should make a video to let them know im not crazy. This video just proves my sanity level.
I finally added all the quicktime links. Now with that done, I wanna change the look of this place sometime. Also i was checking out Eric Rice's podcast's last night (the first podcaster i've listened to) and i like the idea of it. Im not a podcaster, but i'd like to make one or two of them for here. I know this isnt a podcasting site. It's a daily video blog. But who cares? You'll still get a video a day. It'll just be something different. Something extra. I'll aim at an hour long show. It could be cool.

Quicktime Versions Added

I've almost converted and added a quicktime version of every video now. I still have to add a few, but that only about 4 more videos. By tonight they should all be added.

I added the quicktime version link under every video and the enclosure link for every video will be in quicktime too.

Oh and the quicktime version of the video maybe be added a little later then the wmv video. Normally i finished editing like 10 minutes before 12pm. So i will post the wmv version first so i dont missed the deadline and ruin the project. So if i just posted the video check back 10/30 minutes later and you'll see the quicktime version.

Are you mac people happy now? :D

Pure Violence

The software i use to convert has started working again. Im not exactly sure why. it could be the fact that i deleted a gig or so of files on my computer today. So tonight i plan to add a quicktime version of every video here. I'll just put a link to the QT videos in the entries for the time being. I'll also change all the video enclosures to the quicktime versions. (only the videobloggers will understand what i just said.) Today's video contains some violence.
If your wondering, No. Im not being sponsered by them. It's just something to do.

Hunting with Ian

I hope my neighbours didnt see/hear me doing this.

2 minutes to post. What's up with my internet connection dying 10 minutes before the deadline? --edit-- stupid software. I cant convert this to quicktime or half the other videos on this site. I have no idea why. the converted file just get's lost?

Daily Life

Today, I did nothing. Yet I did something. It's weird when people say that 'I did nothing today.' You have to do something. This is what today's video is about.

It's meant to be silent. I'll add the quicktime version of this in 3 minutes. i need to post this now or i will fail the project. 

 I can finally convert these into quicktime now. Im gonna do that for every video tonight. (or at least by tomorrow) They turn out perfect when you convert them. Sometimes even better, Since I can now lighten the dark videos. I will still be posting the wmv version for the people who cant watch or just hate quicktime files. 

 I just got to think of how to set the video links out now. you know how I use that image to link to the video. Well because i dont really wanna add 2 big pictures. I just got to work out how i should link to them now. I might just have an image and then add 'WMV | MOV' under it. 

Wow. I have done 20 videos now. (21, if you include that outtakes video) It doesnt seem like it though. 11 more days and i have done the first month. :) Im probably gonna edit the look of this page soon too. 

 I should probably say thanks to Arron for telling me how to convert the files. Thanks!

Black & White

As always I didnt plan out today's video and i had to make something in the last 2 hours. This doesnt have any toast in it this time or comedy. It's just random black and white.


That 'Dark Night' Video that i mentioned. I have the day off tomorrow. Hopefully i can come up with something better then. Anonymous Commenters! Thanks for commenting, but if you're gonna comment at least sign off at the end. Like: - (Your name). It'd probably be useful to put your site or email address under your name too. That's all.

College: A Short Video about college...

I went to college today. It was a long day. This is a short video.

I plan to convert the videos I have done into quicktime soon. I'm gonna post in both formats soon. I have enough space for it and bandwidth isnt really an issue for me right now. I asked Aaron how he converted his videos and he told me he uses 'Sorensen Squeeze'. Can anyone point me in the right direction for this? I see it's *Only* $429.00. Does anyone wanna donate me $420.00? haha. Just kidding.

Cooking With Ian...

I filmed this an hour ago. I didnt have a clue what to film today. I pretty much came up with this just 2 hours ago. I really have to get more organised.


As always it took me like a million takes to just get the starting line right. So i could probably have an outtakes video up in next hour or so. A huge thanks to Raymond for donating today. (the first donation!) You rock.

Bionic Coke

If you have ever seen a show called 'The Six Million Dollar Man', You'll get this. If you havent. It doesnt matter. It's still ok.


Your probably getting sick of the can videos. I'll do something else for tomorrow and continue the can thing another day later on in this week. It's short. But it's a video.

Crying Over Spilt Coke?

Yeah...More stuff about the can people.
Sorry that you have have to download the videos to play them. It's annoying. Most people i know hate quicktime files. But then, the rest of the people i know, hate wmv files. So whatever type i go with, people will be annoyed. Blah. I'll have something figured out by next week.

This video isnt the second video for the 3 part 'A day in the life of Ian'. This is just another video.

Right now im coming up with loads of ideas for future videos. I have also decided im gonna make a 'mockumentry' based on something I wrote last year. It could be good. This could be a good year.

A day in the life of Ian. (morning)

This is part 1 of 3 videos I'm gonna do. Watch it...


Oh, I do swear in this video. So dont watch it with your whole family like you do for the rest of my videos...(unless your family doesnt care about swearing.) An Outtake's video will be added later tonight. It's basically me screwing up and laughing.

The 05 Project.

This is the first real outside video here and I filmed it in my garden... Well, Im sure if i did this in the woods-like area near my house i'd be jumped or arrested. It's pretty scary in the dark too. Im not scared of the dark. Just dark woods-like places.
This should make up for yesterday's thrilling video...

Way too tired.

I am so tired. I would have gone to sleep earlier, But i kept thinking that'd i'd over sleep and miss my 12pm deadline for a video entry. So i just made this. It's pretty terrible. but i dont have the energy or creativity to do anything else right now. I really do need to sleep.
But at least i havent missed a day yet eh?

The Start and The End of My Day.

It was my first day back at college today. I took my camera to film a little of it.
I was only in college for 3 hours today and most of that time i was in lessons, So i couldnt really film much. I finally got my camera's cable in the post today too. So expect more videos filmed outside the house now. Oh, I just wanna say thanks to everyone who has been commenting and linking me. Thanks. It's cool of you to do so. - Ian

No Budget Style.

Today I decided to go basic on the video. Who needs cool effects anyway?
Im not taking the piss out of any other video bloggers in this video. It's just my version of the things they can do. Just with a very low budget... I finally sorted the feedburner. (I think) and i added a paypal donation link. No i havent sold out. Im not gonna plaster the site with ads. That's all you'll see. It's just there for the people who want to donate. Im not forcing you at gun point or anything. Even if i dont get any donations at all through out the whole year. You'll still see a new video here every day. You dont owe me anything. I guess i kinda owe you in a way, just for checking out this video blog. Tomorrow's my first day back at college. It looks like im gonna have to get back in a routine again. This past week i've been going to sleep around 3/4am and getting up at around 3/4 pm. I havent really seen daylight. (it still get's dark early you see.) EDIT: Use this link below for my feed. Feedburner is being annoying. RSS FEED Link. Thanks, Josh for helping.

Sorry about this.

Ok im sorry about this video that you're about to watch. I filmed 2 things today. BOTH came out really dark even though i had all the lights on in the room. (that's 3 main lights and 2 little ones.) So with 30 minutes to go. I just had to find a video on my computer and just use that. This was it:
Yep. That was it. 12 seconds long. That's all. I have quite a few ideas for things i want to do for this blog. But i cant really do them until i get my other video camera sorted. You're probably thinking that's just an excuse now. It's not. Hopefully you'll come back tomorrow after watching that.

Experimental Spiderman.

I couldnt think of what to do for a video today. Then I thought about making something with a little spiderman doll i got from one of those claw machines ages ago. It took me a while to find the right music to go with this video. In the end i asked a few friends and my friend Kai told me to try this song and it worked great. It completely changed the feel of the video too. So check it out and tell me what you think.
I have only 15 minutes left to post this or i've ruined the project. ha.

Orange Juice P.O.V.

So i started making today video with scrabble letters and then i went to go get some orange juice. That's why today's video is like this. (the scrabble stuff will probably be used another time)
If you dont know what P.O.V is. It stands for 'Point Of View'. It's through the person's eyes, what their thinking and so on.

Driving Lesson #4

Today i had my 4th driving lesson. They're all 2 hour lessons. So that's 8 hours now. On the first lesson i couldnt steer propery. 3 more lessons later, Im still crap at steering. I am getting better though. Anyway, here's a video about my 4th lesson:
I also wanna show you an image i took about 7 months ago on my digi cam. I havent edited this at all. oh, I did resize it. That's all though.
It's a picture of my tv downstairs. I just moved the camera quickly to the side, while i was taking the picture and that's how it turned out. Pretty cool eh? EDIT: I just realised the sound on the video might be a little off. It's really quiet and makes me sound kinda posh. Im not posh. It's just the dodgy sound...

Emma's Video

Today i went with my family to the woods to walk my dog, emma. Here's a video of it:


Im pretty proud of this video. It's actually the second video i've ever made. It was also made using my digital camera that cant record sound and only records for 20 seconds at a time. next week the video should be better as i ordered a cable for the video camera i have.

New Year. New Blog.

So it's now 2005 and start of this blog. I haven’t really done much today, seeing as I woke up at 3.30pm. So I guess I’ll just talk about yesterday, as that was a more eventful day. I got up. Got showered and went up the city with my mum and my sister. We went into this shop called republic to change some jeans over that my sister had bought. It was pretty packed in there. After that shop and about 10 other clothes shops they wanted to go in I finally got to a shop that I wanted to go in. I managed to buy paint shop pro 9 for just £49.99 (it was marked £69.99) so I was pretty happy about that. You might be thinking why buy it? Just download it. Well I pretty much use it everyday, (well, psp8) so I thought I might as well buy it. After that we went into a few other shops and then we went home. A pretty exciting day so far eh? I thought something was happening for New Year, so I was pretty annoyed to find out that nothing was happening. So after a while I decided that I would order a pizza and try to get as drunk as possible. (Not on pizza...) I've never had a hangover. No matter how much I drink, I never get one. I normally just wake up feeling great the next day. So it's kind of a reverse hangover I guess. So my aim was to get a hangover. It didn’t really work out. My friend Jake decided to come round and I just talked to him for a while and still drank but it wasn’t really enough to get drunk. So after a while I just gave up. Have you ever said something funny to a bunch of people and then a second later someone asks you what you said and you don’t want to repeat it because it won’t be funny? Well, that happened a few times last night... I'll do some video entries soon. I was checking out my dad's digital video camera and i just have to buy a lead to hook it up to the computer. I have my own digi cam, but it doesnt record sound. The lead is only £6 on ebay.(including P&P) Im just £6 short. Apparently, I only have 39p in my account. I didnt think it stayed open if it was under a pound. This is a bad video. (done on webcam) but I think i should probably link it just for the hell of it. If your wondering why i look out of it. it's because i done this about a week ago at like 3 in the morning. Check it out below: Ok. Im gonna end this entry now. Oh and if your wondering, I didnt have a hangover.
