Click here for the quicktime version.


the quicktime will be up soonish.

I don't like this one. I still feel like i have grass in the back of my throat. not good.

If you're wondering. yes. I dont like Challege Ian. I feel like it's too gimmicky now and it gets lame when i have look through the emails for something i can do. I have been thinking about dropping it. but people seem to not like that. so i'll leave it up to you. comment and let me know.

Almost...

Ok. So everything went wrong for me with video tonight. I almost failed again. hence why this is the video:


Click here for the quicktime version.


Give it a minute or so. the quicktime is uploading.

This actually has alot of meaning in this video. I mean. This is basically me trying to keep on going and the weird colours and the dodgy look is the things going wrong and at the end i take a breather as i finally managed to do it. Im probably just talking crap though.

I'll do another post in a minute after this.

Click here for the quicktime version.


Porn! well, not quite. But i've been naked in a video now. Does that now make me a pornstar? That's something to add to my C.V...

Thanks Brandy for the Idea!

No Idea...

Today's video is random. (mostly meaning shite.) Dont ask me to explain it. I have no idea.


Click here for the quicktime version.


Actually, It's pretty much me walking about the house, sped up, in black and white and with some kinda strobe setting on. Some times it's not good to use too many effects...

Out Of Focus

I like this video. It was done in under ten minutes with no plans what so ever. But you'll probably know that from after watching this video.


Click here for the quicktime version.


Yesterday, A commenter called Laurence suggested i do the following from now on:

1. plan something to say.
2. by a tri-pod and stop moving the camera every 2 seconds.
3. and maybe at the end of the video post, end with something to make people want to come back and see the next one.

Sorry Laurence, I didnt hit any of your suggested points in today's video. But you've got to remember this isnt a daily show. it's not some kind of soap opera. The reason's why my videos seem lame right now would either be because im out of ideas, been out most of the day or it might be because im socially engaged...

Tomorrow's video will be based on Laurence's 3 rules. Let's see how that goes..

Tent

Ok, I just realised it's a bad idea posting a video after you're *slightly* drunk. Things could go wrong..


Click here for the quicktime version.


So this is the video i mentioned last night. yeah. im being crafty and posting it today. sorry, i dont have time to actually make a video which is half decent now. so im posting this.

I just got back from a local gig. I didnt even realise it was a 'metal' gig until an hour before it started. the first band were good. but the rest were pretty cack. sure i admire them for getting on stage and screaming their lungs out. but come on! I'm not sure where im going with this. so i'll stop now.

Oh and thanks to Danny Wallace, the author of the book i 'reviewed' the other day for shouting out my site on his site today. That's cool!

....Egg Splat....?

Im not that keen on this video...and i smell of yolk again. I hate that smell since the last video involing eggs...


Click here for the quicktime version.


If you didnt know, I was mentioned in an article on wired.com about video blogging and as you would expect it attracted a few anonyamous comments like "wow you are fucking gay" for yesterday video, which was about a book. What? didnt you know? reading is obviously a homosexual activity...

Also i got this comment on the Challege Ian #3 video:

"well here my three challenges:

easy: keep doing the monkey.,

moderate:do a diet fatso.

hard: Get a life! and some real life friends while you are at it..."


I've decided to take that person's advice and from now instead of going out to places and hanging with friends. I'm just gonna stay in and surf around blogs, video blogs and maybe a few podcasts and leave comments like the one above as that is obviously how you're meant to live your life.

Yes Man!

So i pretty much picked up the first thing i seen and made a video about it today... i do have a few ideas, but i need to have more time then a day to do one of them. that could be good. i'd have never done anything like it before if i end up doing it.

The Cycle

I'm starting to run out of ideas of things to do for videos. actually. that's an understatement.


Click here for the quicktime version.


I finished reading Fight Club today. damn, it's different to the film of the same name. Do you wanna know how different it is to the film? well, it'd be like the Harry Potter film being about some guy named Melvin, who works in a supermarket. nope, there wouldnt be any magic, wizards or stuff like that. there'd just be shelf stacking and tales of crazy customers. thats how different the film and the book are. *

* I may have gone slightly over the top there.

Thanks to everyone who emailed / messaged me asking if i and my family was ok. Yeah. im fine. so are they. I dont live in london or have any close family in london. but thanks anyway.

Reservoir Dogs

Today, I went and i seen 'War of the worlds'. It was great...well...until the ending. Which just seemed rushed. I'd rather they ended it on a downer. Sure. It might be depressing. but when you look at it. the films where the endings are 'unhappy' are the films you think are best.

Today, i was planning to do a kinda flash back of all the first 182 videos as it's the half way mark on my project today. But that fell through as it would have taken a bunch of hours to edit and pick the best bits. So here's something i come up with, shot and edited within an hour. Sorry about the 2 dodgy cuts in this. i'd need more time to make it more smooth.


Click here for the quicktime version.


the quicktime version is still uploading. wait.

Let me know your favourite videos of mine so far and i'll include them in the flashback video, wehn i finally do one. (could be tomorrow)
