One-Take Wednesdays: The Thursday Edition
By Dave Fox
Thursday, August 1, 2013
One Take Wednesdays are a new video journaling project I’m attempting. Every Wednesday, I’ll run my mouth for three or four minutes about whatever’s on my mind. I’ll do it all in a single shot — no second takes allowed.
My hope is to post these videos from wherever in the world I happen to be — by Wednesday evening Singapore time (where I live), early Wednesday morning North American time (where a majority of my readers are). If you’re in a different part of the world, I’ll let you do the math. You seem like a smart person.
A couple of days ago, my wife, Kattina asked me, “How the hell will this be different from every other freak who runs their mouth on YouTube?”
I gave her a simple answer: “It probably won’t be.”
But every week, I have things on my mind I don’t have time to write about. This will be my opportunity to get those things out of my system so they don’t fester in my brain as unwritten articles. If you’re a fan of Globejotting.com, you might enjoy these video rants. If you hate Globejotting.com, you probably won’t.
