I didn’t see this initially. It’s a long net, presumably lost by one of the little trawlers. I can’t help wondering how they managed to lose it, and why they didn’t make an attempt to recover it, or perhaps they did, and it has become too entangled for them to draw it back in. I don’t know. I wondered what to do about it. Dangerously assuming that they are going to do something to get it back.
If it is still there tomorrow, I’ll DM StreetScene about it.
I follow a number of people on YouTube, mostly American, and mostly aimed at running businesses, very focussed on that. They are almost breathless in their urgency to get their message out. Then it comes as one long stream, where they give the impression that taking a breath would waste the time and space for a word that will help them sell. To be honest, it pretty much leaves me breathless just watching them.
I kind of get the logic, who wants to waste their time watching me pause for breath, when I should be giving them more information. Then there is the editing. These people have been producing videos for years. Not decades admittedly, yet the edit points are clearly visible. I haven’t tried to do this, so I can’t really talk about it, but I will do. There must be a way of doing it, than can be learned – is that doing a scene perfectly so that you can cut between takes. Actually, I’m just thinking about it. I watch a regular vlog by an astrophysicist, Dr Becky (from the UK), and I can’t recall seeing the edit points. I’ll have to make a point of watching for them next time she is speaking. And she does make mistakes, because the bloopers section at the end is very popular.
