Notes on The DeanBear Vlog for 2/10/2010 – Double dose of DeanBear

Okay, so I don’t post a blog video daily…sometimes things get a little time-crunched in my life, and some things have to go on the back burner, so to speak. I know there are people who like watching my videos and seeing what is going on in my life, but sometimes I do get so busy with my life that I just don’t have the time to record or post. I did record on the 8th and the 10th though, and decided to post them together in one video for your pleasure.

Notes on The DeanBear Vlog for 2/7/2010 – Sunday at the Flea Market

Dan and I decided to take a trip to the flea market, but I didn’t (which is rare for me) take a note on HOW FUCKING COLD it was…10 degrees Fahrenheit. Surprisingly, the flea market was pretty busy, considering it was Super Sunday. Dan found a couple of little items, mainly for Gypsy (our roomie) but I didn’t find anything that I wanted (or needed.) Afterwards, we headed to the P&C store for a few little items (Sunday paper, bottled water, donuts) and then headed for home. Mostly, it was just me and Dan talking about things in the TrailBlazer.

Notes on The DeanBear Vlog for 2/4/2010 and 2/5/2010 – Getting used to vlogging

Two more entries in my video blog…Thursday night and Friday night. (I didn’t do any comments on the video for 2/3 because I was DAMN TIRED!) Thursday was pretty short because I really didn’t have much to talk about. Friday on the other hand, I decided to record the drive in to work using my FlipHD (as opposed to recording on the bus, which I did using my Canon PowerShot.) The music in the background is coming from Dan’s favorite radio station, WMVN (also known as “Movin100.”) I though the end result was pretty good, considering that I was shooting in a moving vehicle. Dan as usual, got a little cranky when I turned the camera on him. I have to get used to the idea of doing daily vlogs and getting them uploaded, and also edit them down so they don’t run over 5 minutes. Ah well, I’ll get better at it as time goes by. And it isn’t a mistake on the video for 2/5, I did rate it TV-PG because I didn’t use any nasty language in it (except for using the word “ass” towards the end of it. Guess it is a first for me. Go figure.)

Comments on The DeanBear Chronicles – Episode 10: Is Talent Everything (Or Nothing?)

Sunday was pretty boring in the DeanBear Universe. Had to go to Wallyworld (aka Walmart) to get some new cheap jeans for work. (One pair blue, one pair black, relaxed fit Faded Glory, $8.00 a pair.) Also got some Gold Bond medicated foot powder, because my feet get sweaty and stinky from being on them all night. Also made a decision that I decided to purchase online (from TigerDirect.) Let’s just say that my blog videos will improve for the better (visual wise.)

This episode of the chronicles was a totally off the cuff effort on my part. I woke up about 5:30 Monday morning and just started watching YouTube for shits and giggles. One video by Aron Ching (ForFun808) got me thinking about what it takes to be a success on YouTube, and why some people make it and some don’t. Shooting the episode was different too…I just recorded it straight from my Canon ZR930 camcorder right to the computer using the video capture program that is built into Sony Vegas Movie Studio, no recording to tape bullshit and then transferring. (It saved me a lot of steps.) I also did rendering using the default Windows Media encoder, which should save me a lot of headaches (and reduce the size of the rendered video.)
