So, I’m managing to stay true to my promises and give you number two in the video update series. Today, we talk a little bit about the plan for this update, but mostly we focus on 4 of the 5 Best picture noms for the 2009 Oscars. Also, we tried out the other webcam today to much better results and also upgraded the audio thanks to my soundboard and mic.
Hope you enjoy.
So, this was supposed to go up yesterday, but it ended up taking way longer to render than I thought it would. I promise I’ll get better at this. Here is what I am calling episode 2 of my videobog. I think we have the basics now to start going into a bit of a regular format. I have a couple of other podcasting ideas that are going to start being put up here, just to see what you guys think. If you like this stuff. tell your friends. Give me some tweets and plugs on your Facebook. Today’s episode is all about what is right with Slumdog Millionaire and what is wrong with Street Fighter 4. The new look is well under way, too. I think it’s going to be pretty cool.
So we all probably have a very similar browsing pattern, I would think. Everyone has those sites they go to everyday or once a week. You probably don’t even think about it sometimes. You just click on the bookmark or you have an icon on your desktop and that’s where you start. I do that.
Sometimes it gets very regimented, too. Generally, it’s based around my workday. Mondays would be these sites. Tuesday this site and this podcast. Thursdays were blah and so on. With a few sites that I went to everyday, even numerous times a day.
So, I was thinking. What are those sites that are worth talking about? These sites make up MY INTERNET. I’m not talking about those places that everyone knows you go to. Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Google and Twitter, don’t count. Of course I go there. That’s what social networking is all about. (side note - you can find all of my social networking links at the bottom of every page) I’m talking about the places that you go to that are things you found along your Internet lifespan that maybe people know about, maybe not. They connect to you in some way (the voice, the content, an activity), and you have become just as loyal to them as your favourite tv show or restaurant.
So, I watched the Oscars last night as I have been doing for the past 20 or so years and it really made me wonder about it’s validity as a show in general. Are they still worth watching or is it just a big commercial for a certain selection of movies and a way of getting actors more money in their movie deals?
