Why, you might
ask, would I go through so much trouble to put
old videos up on the site? Simply to make it
easier for people to experience The Journey...
See, I have this
delusional concept that at some point there will be
more interest in The Journey than there was in
real-time. Of course in order to make that possible,
I have to make it feasible for someone to go
through The Journey very simply. Downloading
big videos and having them be compatible with every
computer is not simple. Having the video embedded
right there on the page and have almost universal
Yeah, simple for
you maybe. For me?
1) Load the
video from tape to computer
2) Compress the
3) Upload to
4) Name, tag
and link to the entry on YouTube
5) Embed the
movie on the entry page
timestamp links at the top and bottom of each
Now multiply that
by 600 since I didn't start embedding YouTube entries
in real-time until July 2007. Oh and add in all the
errors and normal computer issues AND throw in the
Warner Music Group tiff with YouTube that's currently
pissing off the entire community which made me have to
redo 10 videos. It equals a monstrous task that
I am finally done with.
To be honest,
I haven't the slightest idea where to start - but
I have to share a few gems that are now available
to stream to your brain sans struggle. These are all
lightening fast videos:
has been alluded to dozens of times
throughout The Journey... it should make a
bit more sense now.
actual laugh-out-loud moment of The
Journey to me. (see, sometimes I spell it
video work I ever did in 2000 for
of "Movie Minded", the show I did for
Foley doing an incredibly cool ad-libbed
video to The Journey supporters from the
set of "The Tick".
Bob protest during the 2000 election.
Comedy Store reaction in 2001 that still
gives me chills...
to OSU winning the Championship in 2003.
Classic, classic stuff. I was on
tspeakerphone with my dad and the rest of
my family the entire game.
incredibly precious "Christmas Card" from
seemingly on purpose, kicking me in the
nuts as I start my annual drinking video
for the start of 2004. If that wasn't an
omen, I don't know what is...
finally getting my huge ass 4tvs.com sign
on national television. LOL. I love
singing the Quiznos song with my busted
nail. This is the funniest video on The
Journey and NO ONE will ever
CLICK IT! Yes, it's gross, but watch
it with your eyes closed. Jess is
hilarious in this.
video that ever made me cry while
editing it. I was turning the garage into
a guesthouse to live in 'cause Jess and
I were getting divorced and
I had to rent out the house. Shizzle
was with me every step of the way, and
when I was done I set up the camera.
The music tied it all together and the
emotion of the split absolutely walloped
me. The Journey became more than a site
after this video.
adore this video to pieces. I miss
the Gay Pornstar I was gonna testify
against? This is why he was mad at me. So,
favorite Kenny birthday song. By far. :)
The following month I play the
so you can see how incredibly bizarrre
I really am...
Nein? How was "Nein" never on YouTube
before this!??! Great bit.
the first round of Living Room Live.
I threw the egg, and it didn't land
on my face. :-)
this before it's taken down. Secret
illegal footage from the bada bing on the
last season of The Sopranos. Craziest
I could clearly do
this forever. But instead of that, I'll leave you with
what has to be the coolest link ever:
From this page,
you can now type in any key word and find The Journey
video instantly. Every Kenny birthday song? Kenny.
Every Shizzle video? Shizzle. That one video where
I was naked... when was that? "naked". Done.
Finally a search function for all those people who
have followed this for next to a decade - but could
never, ever, ever find those videos again - because
they were trapped in the beheamoth that was "The
Journey". No longer. giddy-up.
I figure for the
next couple of months I will provide a new and a
retro video just to give everyone a glimpse into the
past. And seriously, if you have one of those desk
jobs with random free time, the story does kinda grab
you in places. I'll devote an entry to the most
receent person to attempt the whole thing from 1-860
as I have a ton of questions for her, and I'm sure she
has quite a few for me. I cannot imagine what it all
must feel like when you can go through it so
I leave you with a commercial I made
nearly 15 years ago for my college tape,
Tomorrow, my 2nd quarter at Otterbein.
Fellow high school peeps will recognize a
fellow classmate and by all means if
anyone knows any of the other people in
this - I'd love to put the appropriate
tags on YouTube.
I was gonna get
into a big thing about Warner Music Group but it's too
good to get buried. So I'll save it for next month.
Now, as promised, starting tomorrow I will release 3
very special entries which will allow many of you to
experience something you've never before been able to
experience over the net. Can't wait.
