I was browsing around my old desktop computer and found this video of me from November 2008 playing an acoustic riff that I was working on at the time. I hope you guys enjoy it!

There will be some more new videos next week, including a new Life In… video (pending on the weather) based on your suggestions via Google Moderator as well as a new N-FAQs video. See you guys then!

P.S: Only 19 more days until I get shipped off to boot camp for 2-3 months! I’ll put together an awesome farewell video before I go.

Behind The Flop At Flopamation

If you cannot see the above video playlist, click here.

Before I begin, I want to apologize for not having a new episode of First Impact Anime this week. Eriopolis is in the middle of moving to a sweet new apartment with his brother Ben, so I’m hoping that the next episode will be over there. I already have an anime planned out to watch, and it will be epic!

Over the weekend, I compiled never-before-seen footage from the Movie Night and First Impact Anime series. This footage includes bloopers, extended intros, and a concept reel where Eriopolis and I talk through and brainstorm what’s gonna happen for the first episode of First Impact Anime. These videos are only available on our Flopamation channel on Blip.tv.

The name Flopamation, which is our production name, comes from the combination of Funimation and flop. I still hope to collab with Eriopolis even when I’m in the Navy, but we’re still working out the details for that.

Speaking of the Navy, I can’t believe that I’m going to boot camp in less than a month! I’m incredibly nervous, but also looking forward to starting my new life!

I plan on releasing a new Navy video this week, where I discuss what goes on at a DEP meeting as well as go over essential learning material like The Sailor’s Creed and The 11 General Orders. Stay tuned for that!

Also, I’ve got at least one more video to record for the Life In… series before I go to boot camp. In that video, I want to cover Grand Lake exclusively since it’s the main focal point of the surrounding area. Too bad I won’t be around to cover Lakefest and the Regatta and all that jazz since it’s the only time of the year when things really get interesting around here, but I digress…

Well, I gotta go out on a bike ride soon so I’ll see you guys next time! Bye!

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!

Lost Vlog 10 – TL4YT Vlog 1 – Making Money Online

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

This vlog was originally uploaded to Google Video back when they let you do that (I miss Google Video!!). I did that because it was too long for YouTube, hence the title Too Long For YouTube aka TL4YT.

I tried making this thing shorter, but the results came out even worse. Anyway, in this vlog, I talk about one of my old ideas for using a website to generate income for me so that I don’t have to work. Needless to say, none of these ideas have seen the light of day due to lack of funding and all that junk. However, I thought it would be interesting to put these up to see what I was up to back then.

Lost Vlog 09 – My Diet & Exercise Routine (Alternate Take)

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

This vlog was originally suppose to be my weight loss vlog, but I decided to rerecord it and break it into sections to make things easier to understand. However, I decided to edit this vlog just to give you an idea of what I was gonna talk about in my 3-part weight loss mini-series.

Lost Vlog 08 – Happy Belated 4-Year YouTube Anniversary (Alternate Take)

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

This vlog was originally suppose to be Vlog 33, but I decided to rerecord it because I wanted to do a shorter take. However, I was able to par down the dialog and thankfully I did because I talk about some stuff here that I forgot to say in Vlog 33.

One of the things I forgot to mention was that Chrome Sparks has its own Soundclick account! It just has the 5 Riff Ideas for now (I haven’t officially recorded Riff Ideas #6 or #7 yet, aside from Lost Vlog 07), but I’ll be recording some new material when I get new equipment in San Diego.

Unbeknownst to me at the time, Vlog 32 was actually released on my 4-year YouTube Anniversary and I forgot to talk about it!

I still can’t believe that it’s been four years since I signed up for YouTube! A lot has changed in that time, and I hope that the quality of my videos has gone up along with the times.

When I go to A-school in San Diego, I plan on getting an HD camcorder so that you guys can see me in HD as well as the surrounding areas. As I’ve said before, I’m also planning on continuing to vlog while I’m in the Navy as much as I can and hopefully let you guys in on the scenery.

Well, it’s been fun looking back on these past four years. Here’s to many more!
