Sometimes I Feel Like This

Know what I mean? Jay definately caught me in a mood. That mood seems to have been lasting about 2 weeks. I'm slowly slipping out of it though. Thanks to things like Node101 Weekend which remind me that there is still hope in the world.

I'm in between shoots right now and I feel the same way. I think I've grown so accustomed to shooting that when I'm not I'm back in that mood. tsk.

You know what they say about happiness?

That it's 'a moment' in life between 'two sad moments'.

you saying or mumbling a few words after you look away is perfect. we don't know what you say, but we can guess.

moods are so seldomly documented in videoblogs. or, we do document it, but try to stuff it into intellectual topics or themes. we try so hard to justify having a bad day or week.

a great little piece. i'd like to see more from you, from both grey and sunny days. have a great thursday!

Perfectly captured by Jay!

Sometimes holding a vision can be frustrating. For me, hope comes and goes but over time I believe we are evolving for the better. What can you do but keep building?

Thanks for having so much integrity in the work you do.

here's some words from j.krishnamurti...

"If you walk down the road, you will see the splendour of nature, the extraordinary beauty of the green fields and the open skies; and you will hear the laughter of children. But in spite of all that, there is a sense of sorrow. There is the anguish of a woman bearing a child; there is sorrow in death; there is sorrow when you are looking forward to something, and it does not happen; there is sorrow when a nation runs down, goes to seed; and there is the sorrow of corruption, not only in the collective, but also in the individual. There is sorrow in your own house, if you look deeply - the sorrow of not being able to fulfill, the sorrow of your own pettiness or incapacity, and various unconscious sorrows.

There is also laughter in life. Laughter is a lovely thing - to laugh without reason, to have joy in one's heart without cause, to love without seeking anything in return. But such laughter rarely happens to us. We are burdened with sorrow; our life is a process of misery and strife, a continuous disintegration, and we almost never know what it is to love with our whole being....

We want to find a solution, a means, a method by which to resolve this burden of life, and so we never actually look at sorrow. We try to escape through myths, through images, through speculation; we hope to find some way to avoid this weight, to stay ahead of the wave of sorrow.

...Sorrow has an ending, but it does not come about through any system or method. There is no sorrow when there is perception of what is."

(I came by this site trying to learn how to vlog, found your tutorial... thanks for the many gifts.)

I don't know. I've felt like that for about 6 weeks now. But we just have to keep going anyway.

You created the bandwagon and now it has left without you.

I should vlog moods more. Just clips of random feelings.

Meanwhile, what bandwagon? I hate when people say weird shit with no guts to admit who they are. Grow up.

I have to imagine he/she is talking about the emergence of YouTube.com

Here is an article from the Washington Post discussing how it will effect politics.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/07/09/AR2006070900895.html

Not to mention the 60,000 uploads a day and millions and millions of views.

Posting your videos online. Everybody is doing it now.
