Over the past few months I’ve been subscribing to more and more youtube channels. Most of them interesting to watch. A lot keep me up to date with the latest gaming news. A few are technology video blogs or vlogs as they have become known. And then there are the various silly humorous channels which lighten your day.
Overall I’ll have to say I’m happy with my subscriptions and actively seek out to find them in amongst my “What to Watch” feed. These include the videos featuring the likes of Ray William Johnson, Felicia Day, Max Scoville and Tara Long, Cali Lewis, Justine “iJustine” Ezarik, Grace Randolph.
I’ve often thought about starting up my own youtube videos, but like anything I wouldn’t have the available time to put the effort in to get a regular and hopefully popular video out there. So I will just stick with the blogging when I can, the gaming, the websites, the coding, the family life, all still exciting and interesting each and every day.
I have created my first Rift video. It’s been a while since I’ve done one so had to play about with installing the right software again. I’ve enjoyed making it though, coming up with the story ideas (not hard really since the story is taken care of by Rift) and then putting the video clips together, merging, overlapping, adding soundtracks, making it deliberatley widescreen with black bars, all things that I’ve done before but this one just seems to be one of my better pieces. But that’s just my personal opinion 🙂
I’ve uploaded the video to YouTube since that is where my Shadowpuma name is linked to. I didn’t really want to get it mixed up in all my family videos on Vimeo. So if interested you can see the finished video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUCr3JFxMa0
Seeing my little ones grow up first hand being a Dad at home all day is great. The latest adventures involved Samuel. He is now walking and enjoying doing so. So much that he wants to walk anywhere and everywhere. The last few days have been nice weathered sunny ones, so we have ventured out in to the garden where Samuel and Maisie get to play and adventure. The state of the garden is great, the flowers are beginning to grow and blossom, and everything has been cleaned and glistens in the sunlight. The fence on the other hand has suffered damage from the past bad weather, and the gate doesn’t stay shut because the post wobbles and undoes the gate bolts. Samuel waited and took the opportune moment to head out of the house, in to the garden, then through the opened gate and down the alley. I managed to capture his adventures on video since we had been filming other things that morning.
Other videos of Samuel and Maisie can be found at the Rayment Family website.
