Of White Boys, Beer, Legs and Lipflap

Despite my best effort to screw-up this first attempt to broadcast live broadband TV, I managed to make a few minutes worth. Alert the media! They're not going to be happy to hear that you don't need networks of TV stations, staffs herded by a megalomaniacal hierarchy, microwave trucks, satellites, 100K cameras and a 401K plan to make live TV occur anymore. Heck, I just borrowed a mic from Rusty, used my kid and Shelby The Rocket Scientist for PAs, and voila... live shows and a pony for everyone!

If you're into white guys' pale legs sitting around rapping about GA politics, this is the show for you. It's all up hill from here at least.

the ventriloquism is incredible, i've never seen anyone swig a beer and be talking at the same time. And the echoes reverberated all the way down here to Macon? :-)

Grayson, hands down, you are too much and the best. You win it all.

Sara said...

At least you said it and not me!

JESUS! Remind me to always note the camera position in relation to my crotch!

Sara said...

Yeah, you ended up on an interesting angle. At least you didn't scratch your balls on the video or anything.

Memo to Spacey Gracey: Next time, LONG PANTS FOR THE HONKIES!

Amber said...

@griftdrift - Bwahahahaha. Also, don't wear all white.

griftdrift said...

Yes, yes. All white bad. I actually knew that but a little heads up the next time rogue videographers are going to be skulking around.

Sorry folks, I did kinda spring the whole "Let's film this!" scenario on everyone. I was so busy trying to get the signal and the audio to work, that I failed to mess with the shot when I should have. And I should have asked everyone's permission in advance too. I was so caught-up in the thrill of doing live TV, I didn't stop to ask if it was kosher for all. My bad. As Amani Channel says, "Never go in with cameras a'blazin." I know this as well as the next person; should just have taken a sec to remember it.

So FYI... I would like to do it again! From start to finish. So, long pants for all the menz folk. (I can't do a June show though as I'll be out of town towards the end of June, but maybe we can all synch the live broadcast thing for a July podcast party.)

Again, I sincerely apologize for my inattentiveness to wardrobe issues. It really was just an experiment on my part. If anyone would like me to remove this video from the blog/archives, I'll be more than happy to oblige.

I think its kinda funny. And for the record, mine were the least pale.

Grayson said...

Be thankful I didn't cross post it at PP too. Hahahahahhahahah! Of course I always could...

everybody knows that government is a myth.

now with the democratization of the internet, the blog revolution, open source government, and grassroots activism, politicians are increasingly irrelevant.

we can do it better than our "humble" public "servants" who are not accountable to anyone but lobbyists.

the immigration bill the Demopublicans are trying to ramrod through and foist on us is vivid proof.

Camera positioning went into my SLDA (sitting location decision analysis). I thought about moving my foot around only when I spoke, but that would've required too much coordination.
