YouTube Cleanup: In 1992, I played a #vampire in a horror film.

Let me start out this blog post by pointing out that I own this movie on DVD and (to date) I still have not brought myself to watch it.  You see, it only made it to publication in the past few years. FLASHBACK: In early 1992, I got involved with...

YouTube Cleanup: #StarTrek video from @UniversalORL in 1991

Talk about “back in the day”… In the early days of Universal Studios Florida, there was a blue screen “screen test” attraction next to the old King Kong ride (which is now the Revenge of the Mummy ride).  The attraction, called “Star Trek Screen Test Home Video Adventure” would have park attendees dress up...

YouTube Cleanup: Kentucky Fried GIANT CHICKEN

With all the traveling I get to do for conventions and related stuff, I occasionally see some really weird shit. This video is an example of one such time. In Marietta, Georgia, there exists a giant chicken statue outside of Kentucky Fried Chicken.  It’s… creepy.  There’s a whole Wikipedia entry...

YouTube Cleanup: 2008 Karma the Dog vs. A Speed Racer Remote Control Car

I love my dog. Karma became a part of our lives almost twelve years ago and she is a bundle of love and entertainment.  Anyone who follows me on Instagram will tell you that I am constantly sharing photos of her because – let’s face it – she’s really, really...

YouTube Cleanup: 2008 Walt Disney World EPCOT Maelstrom Ride

Chalk this one up as “something you’ll never get to do again”.  This particular ride has been shut down to be converted into a Frozen attraction because Elsa and Anna need to print Disney more money. But I digress. This was never an OMGAMAZING ride – but it it was...

YouTube Cleanup: White Water Rafting in Colorado 2008

In 2008 I took a business trip to Colorado.  While there, I extended my stay and flew Shannon up to check out the local area.  We did the usual: Man v. Food locations, downtown attractions, etc.  One of the greatest things we did there?  White water rafting. (Here’s my original...

YouTube Cleanup: #SouthPark’s Casa Bonita in Colorado 2008

In 2003 South Park aired an episode named “Casa Bonita” about a Colorado area restaurant of the same name.  The place was presented as a somewhat over the top Mexican themed Chuck E. Cheese sort of establishment featuring cliff divers and fire jugglers. In 2008, I took a business trip...

YouTube Cleanup: Disney World Pool Hopping 2008

Back in the late 1990s, I was working at both Universal Studios Florida and the Walt Disney World resort down the road.  When you work neck deep in theme parks (and when funds are limited) you tend to spend a lot of your extra time exploring.  This is to help...

YouTube Cleanup: Underwater Camera Test in 2008

This is a short video.  I had recently come into possession of a Olympus Stylus 850 SW waterproof digital camera.  It was 8 megapixels of rugged goodness that endured some pretty heavy abuse before it eventually died in Mexico.  (I’m pretty sure there’s a video coming from it’s death on a...

YouTube Cleanup: The Daytona 500 in 2008

WARNING: Turn the volume down for these videos. The audio is horrible and the crowd and cars are loud. In 2008, my friend Ken worked for a company that was connected to NASCAR (indirectly) and one of the perks was getting tickets to the Daytona 500.  In previous years, he...

YouTube Cleanup: That Time I Got Married in 2007

Over seven years ago, I found myself at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort next to my best friend telling her I’d spend the rest of my life with her.  Add one year for the engagement prior and knowing each other for seven years before that, and we’ve been hanging around together...

We’re All In This Together! YouTube Cleanup: HSM at the MGM-Studios 2007

Yesterday I started a series of blog posts about old videos I have on my YouTube channel as an attempt to clean up the tagging, titles, and info on my uploads. Some of the forthcoming videos are interesting; some are AMAZING, and others are just obvious attempts at learning to...

YouTube Cleanup: The Firefighter’s Fair in #VeroBeach 2007

In 2006, I joined YouTube in order to upload videos for Wasabi Anime – more precisely, the Wasabi Animusical (posted February 22, 2006.)  As handheld cameras and cell phones became more and more advanced, the motivation to post personal videos finally kicked in and, in 2007, I started my own YouTube channel...

For those of you that weren’t at the wedding last weekend…

Shannon has had me slaving over my PC to VCR rig during the past couple of months doing video capture of old VHS tapes from her childhood to find footage of her and her sister together.  She and her MacBook took that footage and made this video: Showing this at the...
