Vlog 66 Part 2-2 – Top 5 BlipTV Videos

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

 

Continuing from where we left off, let’s look at my top 5 videos that are mainly on BlipTV. Here we go!!

 

05 – Movie Night 04 – Space TransformersIf you can’t see the above video, click here.

 

Although this is the last of our Movie Night series, we definitely saved the best for last! We knew this movie very well and the riff came out well!

 

04 – First Impact Anime 09 – NarutoIf you can’t see the video above, click here.

 

The Talkin’ Vedalken edited & uploaded this video while I was at boot camp, and he did a great job! He even added a counter for how many references I make to Little Kuriboh’s Naruto: The Abridged Series (15 if memory serves).

 

03 – Movie Night 02 – Defenders of SpaceIf you can’t see the video above, click here.

 

I’m not sure what it is with us and space-themed shows, but I think our best riffs come from this sub-genre. It was pure ridiculum!

 

02 – Behind The Flop 01 – Movie Night 01 Blooper Reel

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

 

I came up with an idea for doing a behind-the-scenes mini-series showing bloopers and extended cuts of the intro tracks, and the best one I think is the very first one we did!

Vlog 66 Part 1-2 – Top 5 YouTube Videos

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

 

Well folks, I can’t believe that five years (and a week) ago today, I signed up to the biggest online video distribution website in the world, not to mention the breeding ground for up-and-coming talent in the media industry.

 

Now granted, I have nowhere near the large subscriber base of people who joined YouTube around the same time as me (sXePhil, TokyoCooney, RodgerSwan, etc), but despite that, I still make videos chronicling my life and how it has changed over these past 5 years.

 

Heck, I can even go back a year and look at the kind of videos I was doing then and see the differences between then and now. I believe that my videos underwent a major change after I graduated US Navy boot camp in late August 2010. I also started doing the N-FAQs series on a regular basis around this time as well.

 

Now before I get all gushy-eyed, let’s begin our trip down memory lane and look at my Top 10 videos of the past 5 years! Due to the time limits on YouTube (15 minutes as of 03-08-2011), I split up the video into two parts. In this video, we’ll be going over my Top 5 videos that are primarily on YouTube. Here we go!

 

05 – Vlog 04 – Going Around Town

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

 

This video marked my very first attempt at using video editing software (Sony Vegas, which I still continue to use even today, although I keep it up-to-date), whereas my other videos were filmed in one take and sometimes compiled via Total Video Converter, like in my very first guitar video. Vlog 04 is also a very early precursor to the Life In…Video series.

 

04 – Pie In The Face (Navy Style)

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

 

This video, while it was an editing nightmare due to YouTube’s 15 minute time limit and the very large amount of footage that I took, was and still is a blast to watch!

 

03 – Life In…Video 02 – Celina & Coldwater Ohio’s Bike Path

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

 

This video to me was the beginning of a more refined editing sense in my videos. I had done a bunch of at-the-time new things like add music & record while riding on my bicycle. Although I replicated it on videos afterward, I feel that I haven’t quite recaptured the mojo of this video!

 

02 – Vlog 21 Part 1 – Life Plans Chipotle Finders

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

 

02 – Vlog 21 Part 2 – Goin’ Downtown To Myles Dairy Queen

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

 

These two videos I believe are my most under-rated of all time! I had to split this video into two parts because of YouTube’s at-the-time 10 minute time limit, but it seemed to work out just fine. I did things a lot differently in this video that I haven’t done before or even since, like add those pixelated transitions ala Parker Lewis Can’t Lose. I had a blast recording & editing this video, and I believe it really shows! Even Rodger Swan, one of my YouTube heroes, gave it great praise and always referred to it as one of my better videos!!

 

01 (TIE) – Al Di Meola LIVE at Anthology San Diego [02-19-2011] – Midnight Tango + Medley (Full HD 1080p)

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

 

01 (TIE) – Al Di Meola LIVE at Anthology San Diego [02-19-2011] – Race With Devil On Spanish Highway (Full HD 1080p)

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

 

Although I didn’t edit these videos AT ALL, they recorded a very special moment in my life and they’re also my first set of videos in Full 1080p HD!! Great meal, great music, unforgettable times!

 

In the next video, we’ll go over my Top 5 BlipTV videos. Stay tuned!

Vlog 42 – Going To San Diego & Buying A New Guitar

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

It’s been way too long since I’ve done an actual vlog, so I decided to bust one out while I was doing laundry on Sunday.

As you may have noticed, I got new glasses last week. I didn’t like them initially because I thought they made me look like I had bug-eyes or something, but I’m warming up to them.

The big thing that happened last week was that I got my orders!! I’ll be flying over to Point Loma in San Diego on the 23rd of November! I can’t wait!

Although I had some hiccups in the beginning (hardware is a totally different animal than software), things are looking good for me school-wise. As of today, I have 6.4 days worth of school left according to my progress report.

I just can’t wait to go to San Diego! Not to take anything away from TSC; I’m just looking forward to progressing in my Navy career!

With a lot of the guys from my boot camp division graduating their respective schools and getting orders for their next command, it just blows my mind to think that two months ago, we got on a bus at RTC in our dress whites and braved the 5 minute trip here. Then again, some days it feels like I’ve been here forever. I’ve learned that time passes really weird when you’re in the Navy; it’s hard to explain unless you’ve actually lived the lifestyle.

When I talked to my friends in the Navy about A-school before I went to boot camp, they said that it was a lot like college. After being here for over two months, I think it’s safe to say that they’re right for the most part. If you’ve lived in a dorm room setting or had roommates, let’s just say that you’ll be in pretty familiar territory.

Of course, going to school in the Navy isn’t exactly like going to any ol’ college! You have to wear & maintain a uniform (and you get different kinds of uniforms to match virtually any occasion), you do daily musters (head counts), you have duty days where you clean the ship and/or stand watches, you have to work in order to earn the right to go on liberty and what you can do when you’re on liberty (aka the three phases of liberty), and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

In other news, at the beginning of December, I’ll be able to take out a starter loan from my bank in order to boost my credit by rebuilding my credit history. I’ll be using the money to buy myself a nice guitar for my birthday, most likely a Dean ML in a blueburst finish with a fixed bridge. I’m not much of a whammy-bar guy, so I’m totally cool without one.

If I have some money left over, I’ll try to buy an amp. I’m bouncing between a Peavey Vypyr and a Jet City amp.

At the risk of sounding uber-cheesy and brown-nosey, I’d just like to thank you guys for sticking with me this whole time, even if I don’t update as much as I used to (especially on YouTube).

At the end of the day when I finish uploading a video and get to see all the comments and messages in my inbox from YouTube and Twitter and my own website, it’s a good feeling to know that people are watching and enjoying what I’m putting out there.

Well, I’m off to work on my schoolwork and get one step closer to San Diego. Later!!

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!

Life In…01 – Celina Ohio's Grand Lake Lighthouse

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

In this video, I show you around the Grand Lake Lighthouse in Celina Ohio.

In Celina, the most notable place is Grand Lake, which is Ohio’s largest inland lake. The majority of our festivals involve the lake, such as Lakefest and the annual Regatta (boat race), and provides a great excuse to get insanely drunk among other things.

I am proud to debut my newest series of videos, where I take you to different places and show off the landmarks and such. And yes, this series will continue when I’m in the Navy and visiting many different ports-of-call.

Feel free to leave me your comments and suggestions for future videos; after all, how else can I improve my videos if nobody says anything? Also, be sure to read & subscribe to my blog (link’s always at the top of every video) to keep on the up-and-up wit what I’m up to.
