I've started a new Tumblr, because I have trouble weighing the investment of time against the quality of the idea. It's a catalogue of the kinds of ads that make me feel a little bit of a worse person, just for having read them. It's called "They Don't Want You To Know."
Have I mentioned before that I want to make YouTube videos? I can't remember. Anyway, I've been thinking about it again recently, and it feels like one of those things where it's just going to keep nagging me until I finally get around to doing it. What inspired me in particular this time was Charlie McDonnell's recent video, "I'm Scared."
Depressing, right? I know.
A lot of YouTubers have been responding to this. I wrote a rough draft of a video script, responding to it. I actually tried to record it, too. But I just ended up feeling kind of gross watching the footage, and I deleted it.
I'm going to start trying to record again soon, and I think I've figured out a way I might be able to make it work. I'm going to do the CGPGrey thing, just record sound then animate it with text and images and stuff. It's going to be, like, crazy-hard. But maybe it'll make me feel a little less nauseous when I create.
