iPhone App – In The Mood

By in Main

Want to be able to use Blip.fm on the go from your iPhone? I’ve previously been really bummed not to have any way to Blip when I’m not sitting at my laptop listening to music (that’s why I’ve hardly used it for long periods of time), and the In the Mood iPhone app has an [...]

Review: Bob Dylan Concert

By in Main

Yesterday, Jim and I went to Classic Park up in Eastlake, Ohio to see The Bob Dylan Show (Bob Dylan in live in concert with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp opening). My mom got us tickets a month or so ago, knowing that I have always really wanted to see Bob Dylan live before I [...]

Vid: Harley Ride (July 7, 2008)

By in Main, Videos

Jim and I rode the Harley last summer to meet Matt for some ice cream and then took an evening ride to the bar. I’ve been waiting to edit a lot of motorcycle footage until iMovie updated to 09 and allowed me to speed up clips, so expect more motorcycle videos in the upcoming days! [...]

Review: Regina Spektor – Far

By in Main

Has anyone checked out the new Regina Spektor album, Far since it’s release last week? I am absolutely loving it. I’ve been a pretty big fan of Regina’s since Begin to Hope, and I was honestly pretty leery about her new album, simply because Begin to Hope is such a seriously solid album. As it [...]

Qik | Flight of the Concords in the car

By in Main

I’ve been listening to a LOT of Flight of the Concords in the car lately and laughing my ass off. I mean, the show is hilarious and the songs are great in context, but I almost think that the lyrics and music are funnier when removed from the show setting and the distraction of the [...]

Weekend Update – Family Time :)

By in Main, Videos

Update while driving to meet my MIL for dinner tonight. :) This has been a good weekend and I’ve seen a lot of family. Got some good phone time in with my mom as well, even though she couldn’t make it to dinner with MIL and I. And this is just some more of the [...]

Driving to meet Joe & Amy

By in Main, Videos

Tonight I had dinner with Joe and Amy at Don Pablo’s. It was nice to catch up with friends, and I managed to eat fairly healthy, just having two enchiladas and rice. I made a Qik video on the way, but then accidentally deleted it, so I quickly grabbed the one that auto-crossposted to YouTube: [...]

Post-Christmas MeToday

By in Main, Videos

Talking about how Christmas went with family over the few days during and after Christmas while driving to see my family one last time before my brother and sister (the grown up sibs) head back to Columbus with their significant others and my new nephew, Damien. The second video is just more driving, predictably to [...]

I enjoyed the morning commute today

By in Main, NaNoWriMo, Videos

Thanks to Laura for the kick ass cd I’m still loving in my car a year later. :) [Although, while I do love the cd, I wish I could play music on my iPhone while also Qik recording... This is a major pet peeve, since I primarily use my iPhone for music in the car.] [...]

Kodak Zi6 Driving Test

By in Main, Videos

Tested out using the Zi6 in the car with music playing. The camera seems to have similar stabilization issues to the Flip, but it seems easier to manage just by keeping it in mind and using a steady hand. Very sensitive audio, for sure. I think the air conditioning might’ve been blowing on the speaker [...]

Richard Cheese – NME’s great big giant douche triscuit

By in Main

I’m glad to see the recent blog entries about the Richard Cheese performance at Coverville 500, because I was standing three feet from the first person assaulted by Richard’s extra special lack of manners and I think the dude owes at least two people new, undropped, spit-free cameras. I can honestly say that I plan [...]

Emotional Resonance in Art

By in Main

Joe recently asked, “What stories resonate with you? What movies do you seem to “get” that others don’t?” and rather than put a very lengthy comment on his blog, I wanted to take some time and compose a reply that I can share with my own readers, because I’ve found that, at times, art elicits [...]

Final TromboneToday – Guest Starring Jim

By in Main, Videos

This last bit of trombone footage features a little bit of Jim, who suddenly reveals he used to play trombone in grade school and demands that I provide him with dinner. I mention the horrible verbal faux pas I was going to make my original video about this VidChallenge (therein making the actual faux pas [...]

TromboneToday – Part 1

By in Main, Videos

Don’t worry, I will embarrass myself further in subsequent entries for the InstrumentToday VidChallenge. This is just the very tip of what I recorded several hours ago… I’m not sure how much of it will end up going on Viddler, but there’s quite a bit of it to sift through, so stay tuned…

John Coltrane – “Giant Steps”

By in Main, Videos

As a musician, this video was practically like musical porn to watch. John Coltrane is SO MUCH THE SHIT. I miss playing jazz so much I almost dug out my antique silver jazz ‘bone after watching this, but at 9:30 p.m., I’d be very likely to piss off my neighbors. The itch is getting worse [...]

I’ll melt with you…

By in Main, Videos

It broke my heart when they started using this song in Taco Bell commercials. This song is so much better than melted cheese and bad actors… *le sigh*

“Agent Double O Soul”

By in Main, Videos

I am going to agree wholeheartedly with John Mayer that this video should be viewed at least once per day for ultimate quality of living. That is the best dancing I have EVER seen in my entire life, and I am not in any way kidding. Right on, dudes. That is some serious sweetness.

A video memory I can’t shake

By in Main

Remember this video that I did way back during the summer, with the Harley ride on a perfect sunny day? Now, whenever that Ani DiFranco song pops up in the playlist, I remember that summer day, when Jim and I hopped on the bike, rode through the sunshine, had lunch, and spent time with his [...]

Quaker Steak & Lube w/ Jim

By in Main, Videos

I do a lot of grooving in the car with Jim on our way to get dinner at Quaker Steak & Lube with his parents. Jim spends most of his day trying not to laugh at my ridiculous antics… his doesn’t just save that face for my videos. Haha. :)
