Rock Bottom Commercial – Behind The Scenes

Go behind-the-scenes for a video my friends made back in 2006!

The only edits I made to the original was that I made the cuts a bit shorter, made the behind-the-scenes and the commercial itself into two separate videos, and changed the resolution to widescreen (854×480).

I did leave in the VCR tape wobbles in-between cuts only because it added to the nostalgic feel.

Although I wasn’t in this video, it has a good amount of my friends from back home, and it had me feeling all kinds of nostalgic so I decided to revamp it a bit while still maintaining the original’s VCR-edited feel.

Here’s the original description:

In 2006 my cousin Kyle and I had to do a commercial for our Creative Writing class. We came up with a pill called RockBottom. You take this pill and become a rock star within 5 minutes. This was a fun project to do!

A special Thanks to the following people:
Tylor Boyer-Camera Man
Kyle Spence- Guitar
Ben Miller- Guitar
Ryan Goffena- Guitar
Jake Rison- Drums
Steve LaRoche- Vocals
Jon Vondenhuevel- Vocals
Sarah Tobin- Groupie plus hair and Make up.
Song Performed: Holiday by Green Day

This video couldn’t have been done without all of you! Thank you again!

Also all the people listed above have been waiting over 7 years to see the other footage so here you go! You guys are all awesome!

Enjoy and please comment!

Hey guys, it’s been awhile since I was last on here!

 

Recently, Google Videos announced that it would remove all of their videos, but then later changed it to where you could transfer all of your videos to YouTube. In light of this news, I decided to move all of my old Google Videos to my YouTube account for your viewing pleasure!

 

Here are all of the main videos of Eights and Aces, compiled together into one convenient playlist video. Enjoy!

TheAndySan – My YouTube Story

If you can’t see the video above, click here.

Today, I’d like to talk about how I first came to YouTube and how I’m currently using it.

Around late 2004-early 2005 when I was still in college, my friends and I would browse around site like Fugly, KillSomeTime, and eBaumsWorld to watch funny video clips as well as pictures. They were basically like the YouTube of their day, but minus the vloggers.

When Lazy Sunday exploded all over the internet, we discovered YouTube. At that point, we just added it to our list of sites to browse around for funny clips. It wasn’t until around 2006 that I began watching people like TokyoCooney, RodgerSwan, and SxePhil. I then wanted to get involved with the community so I signed up for my own YouTube account on March 1st 2006.

Although I had already posted some videos, it wasn’t until I got my own camera in September 2008 that I really began to do stuff, and I’ve been putting out videos ever since.

Well, that’s pretty much it for now. Like I said in the video, more new stuff is on the way (including more Navy videos) so stay tuned. Peace!

Vlog 37 – Video Status Report

If you can’t see the video above, click here.

It seems like ages since I last made a vlog, so I decided to do a quick one to explain the status of my various video series as well as what’s been going on recently.

It’s been a great experience working with my best bud Eriopolis on the Movie Night series, and I hope that we’ll continue to make more videos together!!

Until I started working on the Movie Night and Life In… series, I haven’t really sat down and watched my videos that much. A lot of them seemed stuck to a certain point of time and there are a couple very early videos that I’m downright embarrassed about. The reason I still keep them up is to show my progression as not only a YouTuber, but as a person. Despite the overall badness of some of them, I still get warm feelings of nostalgia when I watch the videos that were taken back when I was still at UU! Ahh, memories…

But anyway, getting back to the subject at hand, several of my video series are in a state of flux at the moment. Let me just give you the short version of what’s going on:

J-Vid – Unless it’s for a collab or as a response to a popular video, I don’t have any plans to bring back the J-Vids as a regular series.

Life In… – Since I’m beginning to run out of interesting places to record in the local area, I might only have a couple more episodes of the Life In… series left before I move to San Diego. Once I move there and am able to do stuff, you can count on me bringing the series back in full force!

WAR – Because of the recent increase in views and interest from this series, I’ve been tinkering with the idea of bringing it back. I have a couple of excellent CDs in mind to review! There’s also the distinct possibility of doing a long-awaited anime review *audible gasp!*.

In conclusion, just stay tuned and I hope to be giving you guys some more awesome videos in the near future!

Vlog 21 – Life Plans Chipotle Finders & Goin' Downtown To Myles Dairy Queen

Yesterday, I went up to Bowling Green (OH not KY) to pick up my last two checks from Myles Dairy Queen and decided on a whim to bring my camera.

Despite doubts that I would record anything at all, I ended up having so much recorded footage that I’m splitting this vlog into two parts.

If you can’t see the video above, click here.

Part One includes my supper at Chipotle with Eriopolis (I don’t think he’s been in an online video since a brief cameo in an Eights And Aces practice vid), my revised life plans, and my trip to Finders Records.

For those of you who haven’t experienced the awesome that is Chipotle, it’s essentially a high-end Taco Bell that’s right under an authentic Mexican restaurant both in quality and in price.

Although you can get sides like chips and salsa, I’d give it a pass since the burritos are plenty filling all by themselves. A fajita burrito plus a 21-oz drink (think the medium-size from McDonald’s) cost me slightly under $8. Pricey yes, but insanely delicious!!

I remember first going to Chipotle when I was attending UU. It was looking to be another boring weekend and Dan, Eriopolis, and I decided to liven it up by going to Sawmill Road in Dublin OH, which is home of the very first Wendy’s. I also bought my first Guitar World magazine and a Japanese to English – English to Japanese dictionary at the local Borders. Ahh, good times

After telling Eriopolis about what I’m gonna do with my life, he gave me some advise to consider.

Even though it’ll be cheaper to live with my parents, I should focus on moving out as soon as I get a job and have the money to do so. I know my parents won’t let me stay here for too long and that if I stay, another senseless argument will get me kicked out again.

So, I’ve decided to revise the plan yet again to focus on the next 1-2 years instead of the next 3-5.

1 – Get a job in Celina

2 – Move out

3 – Go to Owens Community College online

4 – Get my 4-year degree at either the University of Findlay or Ohio Northern University.

After going over my 1-2 year life plan, I drove over to Finders, which is one of the biggest record stores that I’ve ever been to. They have a wide selection of CDs and DVDs, including some of the obscure things that I enjoy like Al Di Meola, Owl City, and Marty Friedman’s solo albums.

Part Two covers my brief jaunt in downtown Bowling Green (OH not KY) and then to Myles Dairy Queen.

If you can’t see the above video, click here.

I apologize for the excessive noise, but I think the camera handled it like a champ.

Myles Dairy Queen has been in business for decades and it offers MANY different kinds of things that you won’t find at a normal Dairy Queen, all thanks to some legal loopholes. Not to mention that the owner, Chip Myles, has been running it for almost 40 years!!!! Join their unofficial Facebook group to keep on the up-and-up and to learn more about this far superior Dairy Queen!!

Well, it’s been fun gallivanting around Bowling Green (OH not KY), but all good things must come to an end. I sure enjoyed my brief time in Bowling Green (OH not KY), and I hope you enjoyed it too! Take care!

P.S: The ride back home was pretty rough. Despite the fuel system cleaner that I got for it as well as adding power steering fluid which was around $12, my car was hesitating like a mother and I think that it’s gonna break down on me soon. Super, man…
