Becky’s YouTube Video Inspiration


This video starts off close to what I am aiming for, as it depicts new technology as youth’s latest addiction. I have interviewed “users and abusers” and will be editing the film, plus adding music (in this case the great Benny Benassi) and anti drug ads, to showcase what seems to have so much appeal, and thats technology. ive gotten some great footage, it should be interesting to see how it turns out. I am unfortunately having trouble finding legit anti drug commercials aside from “____, my anti drug.”
The humor in this speific video has nothing to do with what they intend to be funny…as nearing the end any skill is somewhat tossed aside.  Watch out. Death is “comming.” :)

    It’s especially funny when you say com-ming out loud. Try it … com-ming (almost rhymes with bombing) … now try the whole thing. Death … is … com-ming. See. It’s funny. :-D

  2. Becky says:

    Com could be short for something too…you could “com” someone. Death could com someone. Death then really would be “comming”…

  3. Prof Wesch says:

    You mean com as in dot-com? That would be a great verb. I think com is short for commercial, so if you com someone or something would you be commercializing it/them? We need that word. This could be word of the year. Let’s all com the word “com” and become a part of history!  Com-mer-cial-iz-ing is too long … let’s discom it and com com instead.

    That sounds like a great idea Becky! I can’t wait to see it. Technology as an addiction becomes very apparent to me when I’m awake at 5am on a 19 hour WOW binge… *shudders*. Glad I gave it up! =)

    [...] Go view one of my videos on Viddler and then “befriend” me (I’m mwesch).  Then I can put you on my “buddy list” and we can share our works in progress and nobody else can see them.  Since it is so tricky to embed Viddler here anyway it might be best to use Viddler as a place for works in progress and then we’ll move on to using Stage6, YouTube, or Revver when we’re ready to go public.  (By the way, you get $$$$$ every time somebody views your video on Revver.  You like $?  We should post on Revver.  Of course, they’ll com your video.)  (note: see Becky’s Inspirational Video and comments to find out what “com” means.)
