Welcome to my ongoing experiment in micro media. Video blogging is a weird and unpredictable exercise. I'm translating ideas, moments, and bits of my life into 90-second chunks of video. Feel free to let me know what you think, and thanks for visiting!

oh my god...this was beautiful. It was like a crazy rhapsody of thought. I loved it!
Great work.

• breath through your nose
• if you have to choose between eating and breathing in any given moment, choose breathing
• don't sweat the future, live in the present
• go see a psychic, 'cause all that "don't sweat the future" doesn't work that easily


Blogger missbhavens said ... (3/06/2006 3:35 PM) : 

Cool! Actually, in any given moment I'd choose eating over breathing. No compitition there. If we breathed through our shoulders we'd have to cut holes in all our sweaters!

It would do no good to know the future...decision making would be TWICE as hard and make me three times as crazy as it does now...


Blogger dskippy said ... (3/06/2006 8:37 PM) : 

You decide NOW just like you have in the PAST. Carefully, or impulsively - happily or with deliberation or fear, making decisions NOW is the only way you get to see the FUTURE. (my comment doesn't look nearly as good as your question)

That was an awesome experience.

I think most of our lives contain some unanticipated terror. Your life in the past five years has had more than its share. But, as your video points out, our lives also contain some unanticipated joy. You can try to pick options that minimize the chance of terror and maximize the opportunities for joy but it doesn't always work. I'm confident however, that when there is joy to be found, you will find it and use it, along with the terror, to make art. Keep vlogging.
About your decision: Ask your wife. Ask your cat. You'll figure it out.

Dave! You and I appear to be at the crossroads. I love you're art form. Continue to use this as a means of exploring the outcomes of your decisions (ya know the pro/cons list). Ignore that visit a psychic by Jen (no offense or flames). I can tell that you are a believer of God and that seers are not an option. Not to advertise anything, but I'm currently reading a book to help me with the same issues. It's called Whistle While You Work (heeding your life's calling) by Richard Leider and David Shapiro. That's just the title it's deeper than the title lets on. God Bless You and may you hear Him as He guides your way.

A pilgrim was walking along a road and he passed by a man who seemed to be a monk sitting in a field.
Nearby men were working on a stone building.
"You look like a monk", the pilgrim said.
"I am that", said the monk.
"Who is that working on the abbey?"
"My monks", said the man. "I am the abbot."
"It's good to see a monestary going up." said the pilgrim.
"They're tearing it down," said the abbot.
"Whatever for?" asked the pilgrim.
The abbot said, "So we can see the sun rise at dawn."

Peace and Grace in your decision!

Dave: this post is freaking awesome!!!!!
The things you say, what you come to question... Man, that's serious stuff expresed ina a very original and direct way!

I guess we're supposed to look back at our past, and based on the decisions we made there, make the ones todya we think are correct, or 'better'.

If I were in that position, were I have to make a BIG decision, I usually ask for advice to someone I trully respect, and someone I knwo is going to give me TRUE advice.

[YOU are trully an artist. Great video]


Blogger Killer B said ... (3/08/2006 11:20 PM) : 

I've never been so caught up in four minutes of video blogging. I'd argue we need to focus on preparing for the unknown rather than worrying about how to predict it. I wouldn't want to know the future because despite the bad things that have/can happen, it's more about handling the journey than overcoming it before it happens. And choose breathing. We all probably overeat anyway, and you can survive longer without food than air.

Wow. This is the first time I ever visited your site! I've heard of it many times, but have not had a chance to visit it! You are a great artist and very innovative with video.

I love how you're able to communicate so much in so little time. Great piece.
Sometimes my wife Jen gets premonitions and it can actually be quite a nuasance because she gets freaked out. So living in the now seems to work the best for us.

The walk by celebrities down the red carpet at the [b][url=]cheap pandora bracelets[/url][/b] annual Academy Awards is probably just as anticipated by television viewers all over the world as the presentation of the awards themselves. The ladies are the stars of the show, and there's [b][url=]pandora bangle[/url][/b] just something enthralling about seeing them decked out in all their finery for the event. The gowns and the jewelry they’re wearing all reinforce that they are stars, a step above us ordinary mortals. [b][url=]Pandora necklace[/url][/b] There have been many examples of female celebrities who have been photographed wearing pieces of jewelry that are simply stunning at the Oscars throughout the years. Madonna, for instance, [b][url=]pandora necklace silver[/url][/b] was wearing $20 million worth of diamonds at her neck, ears, and wrists at the 1991 Oscars. At this year's event, the jewelry worn by the stars were no less eye-catching, [b][url=]cheap pandora necklaces[/url][/b] and they included just about every design imaginable in [b][url=]cheap pandora beads[/url][/b] just about every hue of the rainbow. [b][url=]new pandora beads[/url][/b] Best Actress nominee Keira Knightley was wearing a vintage [b][url=]pandora bead[/url][/b] Bulgari chandelier necklace of diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires, [b][url=]cheap pandora earrings[/url][/b] whose colors were reminiscent of a peacock's feathers. [b][url=]cheap pandora sets[/url][/b] Jennifer Lopez was wearing dangling earrings and a necklace of gold and diamonds by Fred Leighton, [b][url=]discount pandora sets[/url][/b] who also designed Dolly Parton's earrings and brooch. Charlize Theron's tawny earrings were supplied by Chopard; so were Hilary Swank's diamond earrings,bracelet and ring.

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
