That’s right! I’m starting a YouTube Channel. I’ve wanted to for a while – I think I have a lot to share, and I have lots of ideas for videos. I’ve been gearing up for it – developing a channel trailer, setting up social media accounts, and getting hardware. I have a Canon 70D, so I’ve equipped this with a Rode VideoMic Pro (no, I’m not trying to copy Casey Neistat – it’s a coincidence!). I picked up on the sweet little GoPro Hero 4 Session cameras, and luckily I have a lot of experience with the whole Adobe suite.
So now and again I decide I am tired of standard Hollywood fare, and decide to watch a movie from another stable. I’ll follow a director (I’m a big fan of auteur theory), or a genre, and I’ma fan of coming-of-age films, but often I’ll check out a foreign film. I don’t mind subtitles. It’s a small price to pay to see something completely different on screen. I like movies that are almost tone poems, that lose you in their imagery, and last night I checked out Concrete Night (Betoniyö) from 2013.
Well, I survived! The surgery went very well and I’m at home recovering – in fact, I enjoyed the entire time I was in hospital. I decided to see it as an adventure. Most people look at hospitals with dread, I was fascinated by the processes, the other patients, the staff.
