I'm already learning so many things by experiencing so many issues editing!

I seriously need the practice so I'm going to be uploading as much as possible!

avecalluna:
You're so sincere on both of your videos! Love it!
thedvsmonkey:
@avecalluna Thank you. I decided that this time my videos were for me, not for follower counts and likes.  Although, I did swear a lot less than I normally do!  :-D

Here's my first YouTube upload in 4 years . . . and it shows! Check it out. It's the first of many more to come and it couldn't get any shittier so watch the progression.

Sometimes I feel like a creepy old man on this site. I mean, I was older than many even when I first came here in 2005 but now I'm almost 50 years old. Hell, I'm probably as old or even older as some girls' fathers. I like to comment on sets that I like, whether because of the beauty of the model and...

Now that the temps have dropped it's much more pleasant to go out on photo hikes. A few more colder nights oughta take care of the mosquitos as well! I decided to sell my Sony gear after I picked up the Panasonic G9. I guess I'm a Panasonic fanboy at heart since all of my prior video gear was all Panasonic. So at...

It's not like my wife and I are clingy and/or perma-attached all the time, but, it was the first time I think since we've been married that we've been apart for that long.

The hurricane missed us and unfortunately wreaked havoc further south in North Carolina. I went to the beach everyday to try to catch any action. This is the only action I got! :-D

Now I'm off to hit the boardwalk again to people watch and to listen to the waves! Everyone enjoy your day!

Somehow, after being gone for so long, I somehow found myself following over 800 people! I am going to sit here for the next few hours and unfollow everyone and start over from scratch. If you see that I unfollowed you it is nothing personal! But "following" over 800 people is unrealistic and not genuine for me so I need to do this. I am...

@redlyme Thanks!  We had just moved here and made a point to walk across the street to the beach and were thrilled that it was 72 degrees in November after having just left whiteout blizzard conditions back in Chicago!
