You're that Videoblogging Guy

I was in Boston doing an intro to a Rocketboom field report, and someone walked by and recognized me.

I love it when he does a double-take.

Yule Menorah

With all the excitement over the portable Yule Log, I decided to film a time lapse video of a Menorah, with burning candles, set to the music of The LeeVees.

Andrew Baron calls it a Yule Menorah! [ 3:12 ]

You can watch online or download a portable virtual video menorah to your iPod.

In this video I first light the Shamesh, the highest candle, then light the left most candle and work my way from left to right. The three candles signify the third night of Hanukkah, which this year fall on Deecember 27th.

The lyrics of the song relate to the second night of Hanukkah, where two candles are lit, but I didn't get to shoot this in time for the second night.

Chanukah (Hebrew for 'dedication') is also known as the Feast of Lights or the Feast of Dedication, and it begins on the 25th day of Kislev (the third month of the Jewish year), usually around Yule.

Happy Hanukkah!

What I Know On The Piano

When my mom and I go out together, a lot of times we end up doing something that she normally wouldn't do.

This time we were at CompUSA and I saw a keyboard hooked up to a Macintosh, so I asked her to play something.

51 Talk and Walk

In this episode, Steve comes home late Sunday from a trip to Florida, so Carol and Steve go for a walk in the snow.

While Steve was away, Boston was hit by a surprise blizzard and thundersnow. It always snows when Steve is away.

During the walk the discussion turns to vlogging and Steve talks about how vlogs are not trying to be TV shows, they are just capuring fleeting moments of people's lives, that they may want to share with family and friends. It doesn't have to be a big blockbuster for everybody.
