Vlogging! I haven’t written about Vlogging for quite a while. Just in Icase you had thought I had forgotten. I haven’t. On a Thursday night I do the Thursday Night Net for the Isle of Wight Radio Society. I’ve been doing it for four or five years now. At some point I started doing it as a live session on Facebook. If you go to FB and search for GB3IW, it’s a page not a group so anyone can find it. There are literally hundreds there.
I’ve taken to during the first and last minutes of the session to just speaking to the camera, during the first minute some people may join, or I may be talking to myself. In the last minute before I turn off I sign off. The thing is I’ve been videoing myself. It’s spontaneous and only lasts a few seconds, but I almost get some of the effects I’m after.
I’ve got pretty much everything that I need to produce some reasonable quality video. What I am lacking is a topic range that I can reasonably talk about. The last time I talked about this, and what I was proposing to cover, was as usual a bit too ambitious. Yesterday I received a package that I had ordered from Amazon. I wanted to try it out, so I did a video. I really am going to do this, I’m going to put it here. Unedited. I’m going to make a few points about it. I mention two people, both of which you are unlikely to have heard of unless you are my age. They are the television heroes of an age, and whilst I can’t be like them. I want to be like them. Is that pretentious?
Jack Hargreaves and his TV programme Out of Town. Here’s a link to a page about him; https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=jack+hargreaves&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari and the intro music to his programme; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTtRsRcFVyk which always brings back nice memories when I hear it.
Then there is Dr. Magnus Pyke, He used to be on the TV show HOW from the 1960’s always very educational and entertaining. I’ll ask again, is this pretentious?
