Vlog

Stands for video blog. It's like a home movie, but made with more care and creativity, and shown to the public.

Youtube suggested I watch some strangers Vlog in New York City. It was just him going about his daily life with his wife rolling her eyes at him a lot. I was hooked on their life instantly. Their story. Their love! Casey's VLOG

It occurred to me today that if I were to film my life in the same way, it would keep me on my toes, challenge me, allow me to have a new project. Just looking out the window at my work right now I'm flooded with ideas of how to capture something - that just days earlier seemed cold and bleak and boring.

So I'm in the market for a good camera, and will post my first video on January 1st.

I wish I was a hacker on days like today.

I’d like to replace the articles in the local newspapers in the towns, counties and city’s of those states that voted for him with my own writing.

I’d like to use his words in describing women, and replace them with their own daughters’ names. I’d like to use his words in describing nationalities he doesn’t like, and replace them with their own ancestors nationality. Make it personal – because nothing else has worked.

I feel helpless.
I feel suspicious of every person I see on the street, as people are not who I thought they were.

But I must remember not to make enemies in my head, because most people are good, and most people on this side are on the same side.
But it still makes me feel sick.
For the girls down there. 

I can vow to not visit for the next 4 years. I can delete facebook and twitter and live peacefully with my head in the sand until Christmas or longer. I can put on a big pot of coffee, settle in at work, and watch videos of Obama being the best. And I can write letters to my American friends that say hello, I love you, come visit.
