"19 Tiny Dogs That You Need In Your Life"

No kidding. That was one of those teaser stories that popped up when I closed my Yahoo email tonight. They must use templates for those stories and just plug in the variables:

[Number here] ways you can [insert something desirable here].

[Number here] shocking facts you never knew about [insert name of celebrity, disease, a sexual practice, or your favorite food].

[Number here] things you should NEVER do if [you have a…

Where the heck was Red Bull? Score one for the american nerd.

I just stumbled across that Felix Baumgartner doesn't hold the record for highest free fall anymore.

Score one for the Amerian nerds.   Sorry Austrian athletes.

Petition to Keep Vitamins from Becoming Pharmaceuticals

Article has link to petition at bottom:

If you care to keep natural remedies available legally in the United States, you could help.

P5P (B6)  is something I take as a renal protective measure to slow the progression of my kidney disease.  It's an essential vitamin that has no reason to be pulled from the market in only the US by the FDA.…

I think I am a few months away from my hosting month..... but here is the head start....

... I thought I would give y'all some extra time to pull the vids together.

Imagine that there is a video playing at your funeral  or wake  in the future.  You edit it.   How would you edit  or want to be remembered?

BlancheNoE: At least Sharpie washes off eventually

In my lifelong effort to try not to be a sucky human being, I do my best not to be judgy, but sometimes I can't escape the prejudice that a lifetime of overwork and doing without has instilled in me.

Such was my internal battle yesterday. I work at a university. Part of my job is determining whether students have met their requirements. A student approached me who wanted me to evaluate some courses he plans to take at a university abroad next year, in either Amsterdam or…

Sad Day in the Multiverses

As you might have heard, Leonard Nimoy shot out of earth's orbit today leaving our little rock less fascinating.

I'm grateful to have been alive while he was spreading his particular brand of intellectual acting-genius.

I marveled at the characters that seemed to be written just for him when in actuality it was he himself who made those characters his own. He inspired me to learn balance between my emotions and logic and he was a total fox right up until the day he stepped off…

No Reason

I was working for days and needed some new tunes to help get through the hours, when I grew a liking to the trippy digital orchestra on this one. 

The contrast between hearing the song and seeing the music video was whoa!

it tripped me the feck OUT..and I liked it!

Okay MOTC< I got my hands back on…

About a Dog

My step-mom died @ 1:30 am this morning. We had our differences over the years but there were times when we were actually very good friends. Even when we weren't the best of friends we never lied to each other, not even little white ones, and I always appreciated  that aspect of our relationship. I was with my 4 sisters last night until 10:00pm, in the facility where my step-mom was in hospice and many stories were told. I want to share the story of her dog.

 My step-mom's name was…

MOTC's One Minue New Year ... thing

So I picked this month's theme as the One-Minute New Year.  Mostly due to how this will give me an out to only have to make a very short video.  And only watch very short videos.

The concept is simple - and flexible.  All you have to do is make a video in any style of one minute (or less) that involves one of the following:

- A full recap of your 2014 in one minute

- A one minute highlight of one event you enjoyed/hated/loved/dreaded/etc in 2014

What's Your Resolution?

Mine is to ignore critiques of movies.

We watched Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger last night and found it to be brilliant on nearly all known levels. ;   (click on 2013 film from within this link)

There's a lot of "Little Big Man" in…

Happy Holidays 2014. In memorium

Sorry to be scarce as of late.   Lots of things happening on my end.

Anyhow, I can't quite speak on this at the moment but I lost one of my furry children today.

Sophia Pia,   always a comfort and always greeted me insisting on a kiss when I came home. …

I just mainlined Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets and I’m feeling thankful for having done so and I wanted to organize them here to share with you so you can do the same. You can’t eat just one.

The best one I ever got, which was actually a Mean Comment dropped at LiveVideo, was something about me fucking my brother and then some ponderings on my personal hygiene and what my genitals probably smelled like.

Do you remember yours…

Site Question

Hello active Arkians.

I have a question for you.   Is there a case that can be made to make this a private site?

I'm interested in your ideas on this.  Would it change what you post here or the frequency if we did, indeed, put a lid on here?

Or can you make a case to keep it open to the public?  It's not like we do anything to actively expand our membership or the view counts.  Should we? 

I tend to think of us a site where creative video-hobbyists can share their…

Video Haiku: How It's Done

A haiku is a poem consisting of three lines and 17 syllables.

The first line is five syllables.

The second line is seven syllables.

The third line is five syllables.

You can pack a lot of meaning (or a lot of nonsense) into 17 syllables. Haiku is like the Twitter of the poetry world.

You can approach a video haiku at least a couple of different ways. Syd's format is to present her lines as three video clips, the first lasting five…

Dang.   NPR has all of the new Damien Rice Album.  It's going to be a week before I get my hands on a physical copy of this thing.  

My Favourite Faded Fantasy    <- NPR Link.

I am stunned....   So beautiful. Kind of blown away by "It takes alot to know a man" and really moved by "trusty and true".    The Lyrics are not as poetic as in the…

So my sister and I found my brother Charlie's biological mom and I've been telling "Tales of Charlie" again. For those of you who don't know, I had a beloved brother named Charlie and he was quite a character. I wanted to share this tale with you. It is a true tale. I call this one


I was about 10 years old and Charlie was 12 or 13 when I came home from school on a day that a police…
