Not a lot of content on here the last few weeks, for which I can only apologise. Whiny self pity got the better of me and I only like to talk about whiny self pitying things on here when I've had a while to get over it and can mock myself. So look forward to the story of the last few weeks some time in 2015.
I felt a little bad about the lack of
content and decided that I would do a proper epic post this week, with
much wailing, gnashing of teeth and searing insights into my psyche.
Then I decided I couldn't be bothered, and I OWE YOU NOTHING! NOTHING,
DO YOU HEAR?!? So instead I thought I'd take this opportunity to pimp
yet another new online project of mine that I shall no doubt neglect
just like this here blog.
Youtube. That's a thing. A thing which I don't really understand and
which intimidates me slightly, in that 'the world is very big and a lot
of people live in it and every single one of them is funnier, more
talented and better looking than me' sort of way. So naturally, I've
decided to give it a go.
I've got videos on my youtube channel already, but the bulk of them are
on there because posting to youtube and then embedding the vid in my
blog post was the only way I could figure out how to put videos on my
blog. I'm sure there's a more direct way, but I'm a dunce, so...
I also did a series of really really badly shot, badly edited, stream
of consciousness drivel videos called 'Watch A Shit Show For A Month' a
while back. I think 3 people watched, which was 3 more than they
deserved, and I never did a second month (although I will, when I get
around to it).
What I've decided to do now though, is to branch out a little from
talking about the TV, because I'm more than that, damn it! I'm going to
talk about...er...the thing...and that stuff...er... Well, to be honest
I don't know what I'm going to talk about but I'm sure stuff will
present itself. You see, I'm going to 'vlog'.
Now, I'm well aware that 'vlogging' (and yes I am going to punctuate it
in that way every time I use it because IT'S A FUCKING RIDICULOUS WORD)
is something more often associated with the young, but what the hell, I
was young once, right? And we didn't have youtube back then. So I'm
protesting that the yoof shouldn't get all the good stuff. That's what
it is, yeah.
Anyway, I'm daring to dream that people might actually watch but even
if they don't, what the hell, I'm having a bit of a laugh, so I'm
happy. The introductory video went up yesterday, and you can watch it here, if you so desire; feel free to leave a comment, either here or,
you know, on the video, which probably makes more sense, and let me
know what you think, even if you just say "It's shit and you're
Next week, if I'm here at all, it'll be a proper post with a tale of my mis-spent youth. Honest, Guv.
