(Warning: arbitrary links inserted by WordPress. I kept them because why not; it might become standard practice for this blog, so be warned.)
I made a videolog, or vlog (pronounced vee-log or vlahg [like flog], your choice). If you don’t stop me, I will probably make more. Just like this text blog (tlog?), the first few might be a bit dull, but bear with me. I figure there are some kinds of content that will be better suited for one medium or another.
Just in case you don’t have Flash or enough bandwidth, I transcribed it for you.
Hello, my name is Arlo James Barnes, and this is the first episode of my videolog. I hadn’t been using my Youtube channel for much, mainly just, you know, saving videos for later, things like that, but then my friend Jefferson (this is one of his many channels [that was, I guess, a bunch of channels]), um, he inspired me to record my life in a way that actually represented how I was feeling from moment to moment, and I guess he was inspired by, uh, the videolog brothers, um, whom I have now become a great fan of because of him. Um, I feel that maybe recording video is … better for me than, um, having a written blog, although I also do have one of those at this address, um…
As you can see, not much is actually at that address. Probably much of what it will be now is posting links to these videos, because they more accurately record my day-to-day experience. However, sometimes if something is better fitted to a textual means of communication, I’ll put it there and then tell you about it here. Okay, now you are going to see some video from a couple weeks ago because it takes me a really long time to edit these things, and, you know, complete them, but anyway, I can’t think of anything else to say in this intro, so…here you go.
Quality’s probably not going to be good for a while, because I am working out of Windows movie maker, and an eyesight cam, which…aren’t all cams eyesight cams? [Annotation: (At this time I did not know it was a trademark, iSight)] Anyway, there’s one built in…Oh, I’m pointing to it, but you can’t see it. It would probably be somewhere up there for you. Um, there’s one built into the computer; I am using one that’s probably about the same quality but that is a different camera; it’s definitely not a video camera [Annotation: by which I mean not a camcorder-like thing], um… And the audio’s not going to be so great either, I am going to have to edit this a lot. *sigh* Anyway, things that this vlog will probably be about. Um: I like comics, so I will probably vlog a lot about that. Uh, I like… bluhbluh. Um. I like SCIENCE. Probably going to be a lot of videologs about science. Incidentally, is it v-log or vlahg? You decide. Another thing I like to think about and therefore blog about is societies and utopias, uh, dystopias, I might vlog about that. And, I like links. On the interwebs. So I might furnish you with a bunch of links. For example, here is a link to one of my favorite games, Exitium, made by – made by somebody named Ostracod, whom I met through the game. Meanwhile, here is one of my favorite webcomics, Sluggy Freelance. That’s all for now, thanks.

Please use our sunshine, not dirty coal mines.
Keep our skies clear, and water clean-
It’ll save us thousands in healthcare each year,
it will boost our economy.
Oh Ms. Martinez, we need solutions
climate change is out of control.
We pay for power, not coal pollution.
Please don’t make our children pay the toll.
New Mexico boasts some of the finest
Solar potential in the world
Why not start using this friendly resource?
Sustain the earth for every boy & girl.
As New Mexicans, we love our fresh air,
We love our wildlife, mountains, and trees.
Sustainability is what we want,
Cleaner power is what need.
Oh Ms. Martinez, please open your eyes
To all of PNMs unforeseen fees.
Help us keep up with this great nation,
support the spread of solar energy.
