Porn On A Plane & The YouTube Gathering

So I went to the YouTube AusOne gathering last weekend in Sydney, and I took a camera with me but then sorta decided against it because, realistically, there were going to be dozens of cameras already, filming the same people, doing the same things. And I was pretty much right. You can search on YouTube for all sorts of clips of things shot from different angles and edited differently. :p

The only thing I ended up shooting was this little snippet waiting for the plane...

At this point, I also discovered that my little Panasonic camera I've had since January 2006 is broken - the LCD screen doesn't work if you flip it over (if you want to film yourself talking to camera) :(



It was a fun weekend - met lots of YouTubers I'd seen and subscribed to. Even though I was featured three times earlier in the year, I was really really not recognized (which is fair enough). But like I said, met a bunch of people I'd only seen previously on a 425x344 size Flash video, met some new people, subscribed to them and they likewise to me. So all in all a fun little trip.

Also made a stop at the NSW Gallery and viewed the Monet And The Impressionists exhibit. Saw the famous Water Lillies painting. A very beautiful and intellectually stimulating exhibition and I encourage people around to see it. Alex and I made many many puns about "Monet" and "money". None really stuck with me. :p

When I think about Monet my vision begins to blurr. To view such an exibit I should be or drunk or wearing corrective glasses to avoid the unfocused images. Sorolla is acceptable, but I prefer Surrealismus ( above all DalĂ­) and medieval paintings can be interesting too. Been hugging your hand today? In the appropiate time and place, of course
