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.

one-take-wednesdays-001My 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.

In this episode:

  • An introduction to One-Take Wednesdays (and why Episode One is happening on Thursday)
  • Inspiration from Edward Snowdon
  • Wrapping up a busy summer of Southeast Asian travel
  • A new Hanoi beer quest
  • Prank calling with Vietnam’s indigenous hill tribes
  • A Saigon book update
  • My new online travel writing course

If you’ve got suggestions for future topics you’d like me to ramble about, demands that I get a haircut, useful advice or dysfunctional insults, please post your thoughts in the “Leave a Reply” box below!

And now… here’s Episode One:

    She’ right you know- you are just like every other freak out there only funnier- so maybe not “just like” but what can I say. I couldn’t stop laughing.

    I now have a new favorite freak in my life. Isn’t life grand!
