Obreahny O'Brien



Watch the Video
Obreahny O'Brien stopped in at the NYMIEG/For Your Imagination holiday party on Dec. 12, 2007. I think you'll find her passionate & funny. The interview was impromtu, with the help of Irina Slutsky from GETV. I used some of the same basic questions Nathan Miller of Bicycle-Sidewalk came up with for Vloggercon 2006. I emailed him and asked him what questions he would ask and he wrote me back with these: What got you into videoblogging? Why did you get into videoblogging? What is your inspiration?

You can find Nathan Miller at bicycle-sidewalk.com, Obreahny O'Brien keeps her site at College Wit. Irina Slutsky operated my not so good in the dark camera and I used music from Bre Pettis' free music album.

Jess McCabe & Sizemore


Watch the Video
Irina Slutsky introduced me to Jess McCabe & Mike Atherton at the NYMIEG/For Your Imagination holiday party on Dec. 12, 2007. Since I was interviewing her for my videoblog, she thought it was appropriate to interview them as well, which I did. I used the same basic questions Nathan Miller of Bicycle-Sidewalk came up with for Vloggercon 2006. I emailed him and asked him what questions he would ask and he wrote me back with these: What got you into videoblogging? Why did you get into videobloging? What is your inspiration? You can find Nathan Miller at bicycle-sidewalk.com, Irina Slutsky hosts Geek Entertainment TV, Jess McCabe at www.thefword.org.uk, & Mike Atherton at www.sizemore.co.uk.

Irina Slutsky operated my not so good in the dark camera and I used music from Bre Pettis' free music album.

Excerpt from The Garden of The Prophet

From The Garden of the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran:

“My friends and my road-fellows, pity the nation that is full of beliefs and empty of religion.

“Pity the nation that wears a cloth it does not weave, eats a bread it does not harvest, and drinks a wine that flows not from its own winepress.

“Pity the nation that acclaims the bully as hero, and that deems the glittering conqueror bountiful.

“Pity the nation that despises a passion in its dream, yet submits in its awakening.

“Pity the nation that raises not its voice save when it walks in a funeral, boasts not except when its neck is laid between the sword and the block.

“Pity the nation whose statesman is a fox, whose philosopher is a juggle, and whose art is the art of patching and mimicking.

“Pity the nation that welcomes its new ruler with trumpetings, and farewells him with hootings, only to welcome another with trumpetings again.

“Pity the nation whose sages are dumb with years and whose strong men are yet in the cradle.

“Pity the nation divided into fragments, each fragment deeming itself a nation.”
