Currently Watching: “In The Realms of the Unreal” for the second time after first watching it last night.
It is awesome. If you’re into documentaries and outsider art, you’ll like this.
On Tuesday afternoon I received the following email in my YouTube inbox (and a similar one in my MySpace inbox):
My direct line is xxx-xxx-xxxx
please get in touch with me as soon as possible
I called and she said they’re looking for a Wisconsin correspondent and they loved my flood footage and would I be able to pull together a short vlog by the following morning for consideration for the “TV” portion of their website. I told her I’d do what I could, and then today I got a response back from her about the footage I uploaded.
Also, give me your tee-shirt/sweatshirt size and I’ll send you some Current goodies :)
$100 and “goodies”?! Heck– I’d do it just for the “goodies”!
Who am I kidding. I’d do it for free, just as I have been on YouTube all this time.
Current seems pretty cool so far. Neat sense of community. People actively leaving comments, engaging in conversations through them… It’s like YouTube for people over 16. All the videos are documentary style non-fiction. My fave! Every 3 minutes you’re learning something new, and seeing it through the eyes of someone on-the-ground, learning it the way they learned it.
Wow. $100. That’s almost enough for this month’s student loan payment! Hooray!!
