Helping YouTube Grow

Did I mention, I got a new video camera? Yeah, it was a premium for lasting achieving 25 years with my employer. It’s a nice Sony Handycam, all HD and everything. I’ve had it for a while, but it wasn’t till today that I had a chance to seriously play with it. I recorded myself performing my song “Traveling Clothes,” which was on my CD Another Road. The software made it easy to trim the parts at the beginning and end where I was pushing the button on the camera, and then upload right to YouTube. I’m not terribly happy with the audio yet, though. Seems kind of distorted, yes? I also noticed that it darkened the overall frame from what I saw in the camera, but that’s OK, For a first attempt, it’s not bad.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    You are superb!

    Love your beard at that length.

      Thanks, Max. I like it. It doesn’t seem to scare small children, at least not the small children I care about (my great-nieces). I am a bit concerned about what might happen as the Christmas Season-Without-End really kicks in. I really, REALLY hate getting called Santa Claus. (Ask me what I think about being called ZZ Top sometime.)

        I’ve had people say, “Yo! ZZ Top!” to me, and “Hey, Moses!”

        Only one or two people ever called me “Santa.”

        I’m just not hefty enough at 5’8″ and 172 lbs to be called that…. *Sigh*.

        Sometimes people stop me in the street and tell me “Your beard is beautiful, man!”

        That always makes me feel good. 🙂
