In 2005, I posted on my LiveJournal blog a video of my cat attacking the “mini me” I had knitted him. It was my first time editing and posting a video to my blog, let alone a cat video. The only other video+web I had done was a video from France a few years earlier, but it was put up on a webpage, not a dynamic blog.
This began my journey into videoblogging.
Twelve years later, I made a “mini me” for a friend’s cat. I caught him on camera the other day playing with it in exactly the same way Alladin still plays with his mini-me. So, I decided to take a trip down nostalgia alley. Please enjoy this cat video, starring Salem.
I ran three GUMSHOE demos this morning at the ConTessa Spring Break weekend! Each video is 50-60 minutes long. We played over Google Hangouts, with Roll20 for the tabletop. I screwed up in the Ashen Stars game and didn’t have the Roll20 screensharing (dangit!), so you don’t get those pretty pictures. Alas.
First, we went to Krakow, Poland, for an exciting car chase to stop terrorists in Nights Black Agents:
Next, we flew into space to stop a saboteur on our space ship in Ashen Stars!
Finally, we tracked down mysterious and eldritch rituals in an Indiana farmhouse, on the Trail of Cthulhu:
Much belated, and just two hours after the spectacular night launch (which we also saw), here are the pictures and video of the shuttle launch in February. I have to say this was one of the most affecting experiences of my life. I don’t think I’ve seen a more beautiful man-made event. The sonic boom, from as far away as we were, was reduced a great deal, yet it still made my heartbeat rumble with answering joy.
