    Your use of simple video clips and the sounds of real life make great interesting videoblogs.

    Also, who were the two at the end?

    The bacon scared me, but the ketchup was funny.

    I like that you know how to use a camera in a way that produces entertainment.

    Seriously, brilliant.
    Funny and cute, just very interesting and definately my favorite vloggercon related video so far. Yeah.

  15. David 06/18/06 at 10:04 am #

    Gotta agree with Steve. The Meiser, Evil Clown Face, Meiser is genius.

  16. raymond 06/18/06 at 10:07 am #

    I really enjoyed seeing parts of your process of working, it was really inspiring. Also, I really liked this video, especially the shots of Michael Verdi and the Meiser/Mask. Thanks for making it and sharing it, Chris!

    Meditative and informative… Also love the arms into waves. Beautiful use of sound and visual transitions. Love it.

    Man this is one gorgeous video. Technicaly & Aesthetically… is it possible that an audio/video can harbor qualities of the spirit. I feel that this entry #112 tugs at my soul as well as sedates me. Much like a leg of turkey and hot chocolate. Your ghost is in the machine.

  19. Valdezatron 06/18/06 at 4:32 pm #

    This is the greatest video in the history of the internet. That’s no shit.

  20. Madge 06/18/06 at 5:17 pm #

    You almost got me! For a minute I regretted not being there… well a split secunt actually.

    Beautiful juxtapositions in there, and tribal qualities which were only scratched. Miles and miles were covered well beyond the roads, trails, and beaches of Big Sur, and it only leaves me looking forward to when we can all do it again.

  22. bottomunion 06/19/06 at 8:42 am #

    This one is sooo meta.

  23. Verdi 06/19/06 at 11:49 am #

    I don’t have anything to add. Just – great video. Thanks for making that.

  24. philip clark 06/20/06 at 10:01 am #

    oh that was great.
    keep up the good work!

  25. C 06/20/06 at 3:40 pm #

    you are so talented you make me feel bad for myself.

    I didn’t get out of downtown and seeing what you saw makes me wish that I did… AND that I had Raymond’s faux-fur coat to keep me warm while I did it.

    Damn, that San Francisco is cold… who would have thought it’d be colder than Canada?

  27. ryanne 06/27/06 at 8:47 pm #

    very nice
    i’m jealous you were able to shoot such nice stuff.
    though i’m always jealous of that and you.

  28. Michael Meiser 06/29/06 at 3:34 am #

    wow, you got a lot a comments dude… I guess I don’t need to leave anything long. 🙂

    thanks for showing me moments of loggercon I missed. Chilling at big sur. Vloggercon sessions with raymond, jay and ryanne’s… so much good stuff.

  29. Nathan Miller 07/04/06 at 5:51 am #

    This was great, I wish I could have met up, however I am sure we will meet sometime down the road…

    I loved the sound editing…
