Jay Dedman: Rural America in Pandemic Times

Jay Dedman joins me on the podcast today from his home in Western Virginia, where land is plentiful and incomes are on average a bit lower than in the big city. What is happening in rural America during this global emegency, what does he see and what can we decipher when comparing countries, cities, counties, leaders, culture… any and all of it. Also zombies.

Flashback to Jay, Ryanne and I at the biggest flea market in Amsterdam

Freevlog on Sunday

by bicyclemark

Middle of the night and I’m still editing some video which actually shouldn’t take this much editing. Many of you may be curious about video on the internet; maybe you’re considering starting your own video blog but don’t know quite how to handle things like editing video.

One major influence that helped me understand some aspects of that process: my friends at Freevlog.org. While many of you are certainly aware of fv, I figure it can’t hurt to point you to them, as it is always a good time to start vlogging. Recently I popped over to Freevlog to see what theyve been up to and watch the updated tutorials to check what new methods Ryanne is using. Sure enough I saw the settings for widescreen that she likes and for you viewing pleasure (or horror), I’m going to adopt the widescreen look. (I’ll leave an ipod version in the feed I suppose)

Below is my test run with widescreen, it has little to do with activism and everything to do with how I spent my sunday, as the crew prepares for our big ultimate frisbee tournament here in Amsterdam.
