Hey Internet Friends!
It’s been a long day. I woke up at about 7am, resumed organizing the files already on my external hard drive chronologically, finished that around 8pm, and now I’ve been waiting for the files on this laptop to transfer to the drive. I’m trading the laptop and a camera I no longer use for a different, better laptop that I used to own. Long story, but thankfully it will allow me to work on videos faster.
Speaking of videos, because this week was largely dominated by this compulsion to organize my data, I’ve obviously been slacking on that front. I’ve been thinking of a way to do a daily show. I really want the ability to make a daily video that would be entertaining or informative (or both) that would allow me to interact with an audience via comments or live streams when the videos are being created. Ideally they would require no editing and would be created in one shot.
Obviously it would be about yo-yoing. Low hanging fruit would be teach whatever is on my mind at the time and show something I’m working on or learning. Basically yo-yo themed show and tell. Throw and Tell? Why do I like to use puns in my project names? Unless I think of anything better lets go with that. I would like the shows to have a structured format so I have a general idea of what I’ll be doing or talking about. And preferably there is minimal industry coverage because frankly I suck at staying caught up with the ever changing world of yo-yo. Though if I had a daily show (ie a reason to do so) maybe that would change…
I feel like I’ve been sent back to 2009 to retry all of the various video projects I was working on. I just have to modernize them.
Anyways the format would be intro > show topics (kinda intro related but separate) > education topic > daily discussion (could be topical, probably will just be a response to comments) > community highlight (a subscriber, fan, follower, etc that has done something cool recently that would be fun to share… I’m going to have to edit these if I do that.) > ending.
I have shied away from daily projects that require editing because they tend to get ended by my life becoming overwhelming. That being said I have a lot more control over that now… Well, I need to get back to working on this file transfer so the laptop is ready for tomorrow.
