2014 in Photos - Part One

I take a lot of photos. These days, far more photos than videos. So here's January through June of my favorites of what I shot this year. (Part two currently in production).

Mystery "ghost eye" appears in photo!

A video about a picture I took... Really, there's nothing to it, but to it looks like an eye mysteriously floating in this picture. Not just the eye, but a bit of flesh around it. I'm sure there's a logical explanation, not necessarily paranormal. And, of course, it's hard to see once edited into a video. But here it is. Whatever.



And the photo itself:

More Sea Otters

Sometimes I make a video and never bother to post it. Well, this was one of those un-posted videos, shot in 2011, but not put to YouTube till now (2014). Just a bunch of cute little otters swimming around by Moss Landing.

Slabtown Revisited

Three years ago, I shot a video up in Portland with my old friend, JD Chandler, touring the sites of some of the area's more gruesome murders (video here). Since then, he's published two books of these stories through History Press and is now finishing up the the third book in the series. Well, a few weeks ago, I was up in Portland again, and captured this bit of video of him talking about what to expect in the next installment:

Key to the Highway

What happens when I re-string my Telecaster in the same week I download the newest version of GarageBand? I wind up with a sloppy cover of a classic blues tune and the desire to make a quick, out-of-sync video of the whole mess. With apologies to Big Bill Broonzy, I'm gonna leave here running, 'cause walking is much too slow.

Putting on My Vlogging Shoes

A little bit more about my break from vlogging (and blogging), and what was going on my life during that period. As the poet said, "Life is what happens to you when you're not vlogging."

Books! Books! Books!

April 23 is World Book Day! Yeah, I didn't know either until I got it an email that morning. But what the heck, I made a vlog about it anyway. What do you like to read?

Vlog, for vlog's sake!

Yesterday marked one year since my last posted vlog (not last video, or last vlog recorded, just the last posted vlog). So I tried it again. I recorded a 10 minute rambling story-rant, with starts and stops, and blank stares at the camera. I loaded it into iMovie to see what could be salvaged. Nothing. So I picked up the MacBook, turned the camera back on, and just started talking about why I wasn't posting what I'd just recorded. One four-minute take later, and I'm back to vlogging.

What's New in the iWorld

I spent a chunk of yesterday hanging out at the Macworld/iWorld Expo at Moscone Center in San Francisco, getting an eyeful of what's new for iPads, iPhones, MacBooks, and all that stuff. Coincidentally, I also brought along my iPhone and shot this bit of video... (for more of my Mac history, check this blog post).

IBG: inside the record business

This interview with my father, discussing his career in the record business (1950-1992) was actually shot back in 2009. I shared it privately, with family, earlier, after his passing in 2012. I have finally decided to share it publicly now.
