Hey guys! My camera just arrived and while I have some ideas on what to film I’m also curious to know what you guys would like to see. I definitely have more inspiration for videos than blog posts. It’s easier for me to start rambling on-camera than it is to type it out and video is a medium I’ve always had a soft spot for. While I was big into writing in high school (news editor for the school paper) I was also a part of the broadcasting team and I was set to major in film production before I dropped out. Ha ha ha…
So what would you guys like to see? Anything in particular you would like to pitch? You guys are gonna be the ones to watch it so I don’t wanna just post stuff that only interests me and miss out on cool ideas I’m too unoriginal to think up.
I don’t have any videos yet my work life has been hectic but I bought a nice-ass camera that finally came in and have a free day coming up (this Sunday) which I want to use to film/edit so I can have my channel started up asap!
Thanks for reading and I would appreciate any feedback!
P.S. Have you guys heard about the new YouTube crackdown? Videos with vulgar language/sensitive themes/drug-related/etc. won’t be able to be monetized. That really sucks for those who use it to make a living having to adhere to the above rules. Unless you’re that lady who reviews kids’ toys you’re in a boatload of trouble. I’m a lil nobody so imma be myself and cuss like a sailor. 👽
P.P.S. I’m still working on the channel header I hope to snazz it up but I have a make-do one right now and this is the channel where I’ll be posting: YouTube. I think I linked it right…
I found Eminem at a thrift shop. Seriously.
Have you guys ever bought something second-hand and found something from the previous owners? Like a necklace in an old couch or money in the pocket of a thrift store coat? Yesterday, I found three very strange items in a bag I had just bought.
I found a backpack (one of those mini ones) hanging outside of a thrift store on a clearance rack. Immediately I thought it very cute and figured it would be good for transporting a few things. I’ve never liked purses and refrain from wearing them. I thought I could use it as a makeup bag or just hold my phone when I’m wearing something with no pockets. It’s a brown “leather” bag (quotes on leather because very excited and very vegetarian me found out it’s 100% made out of pvc aka man-made materials and is animal-friendly!)
I opened it up to inspect the inner pockets and found something peculiar in the zip pocket.
It’s a picture of a girl named Sarah with Eminem from 2002! Along with her driver’s permit (2001) and driver’s license stapled to it. The social media addict in me immediately tweeted it. I was so excited to share my strange discoveries that I even typo-ed and messed up the year. //:
Pretty random, huh?
I found out she lived in a city not too far from me based off her driver’s license. But that information is probably outdated, I mean, it’s been 14 years. I tried Facebook-searching her using her full name, then just her first + last name with no luck. I just couldn’t find this girl. I found her on one of those creepy people indexing sites. There was no way to contact her, however. I’ve looked up her full name + “twitter”/”tumblr” after it and still no results. I guess Sarah’s moved on with her life since 2002, avoiding social media. Oh well. It was still a fun quest off of a weird surprise.
Have you guys ever found any strange things in something you’d bought?
