Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

uVlog, iVlog Back!




This is what happens when I’m stuck in the house the whole day.

I never thought I’d end up doing a vlog. But when I was going through Cokskiblue’s updated guidelines on his “uBlog, iVlog” Project, the song and the concept just popped into my head. Pop! And just like that, I realized: [1] my digital camera has video functions all along (“Doh!”); [2] the old iMovie software is so much friendlier than the new one; and [3] I still miss the Avid when it comes to video editing.

Meanwhile, why don’t you guys check out Cokskiblue’s project and join? I’m sure you guys have a mouthful to say regarding video blogging or vlogging. So go ahead, type away or shoot or speak. Whether you blog, vlog or podcast, say your piece.

Hahahaha I LOVE IT! =P It gives so much without giving too much. Haha! =P

joelmcvie said...

@GIBBS: Alam mo, acting-na-acting nga. I realize I'm still acting for the stage, not for the camera. Hahaha, i-analyze ba talaga?

GeoRge said...

Very well, said? Haha! =)

This is the first video blog entry I've ever seen in my entire life! Lol. Before, more dedma lang ako sa vlog entry ng friend ko... ang sama ko talaga.

I plan to join Coy's project too.

And finally, I will link to your blog. I've heard you in a podcast before but never got to visit your page until now.

Mabuhay ang vlogging.

joelmcvie said...

@GEORGE: Thanks! Hey, I'll link your blog to mine, okay?

GeoRge said...

Omg, PS ka pala dati. Cool! I'm with the "CCM" of 23, which is just about the same work. =)

Favorite ko naman yung Media 100i. But for personal usage, I use iMovie (older version).

Thanks for the link! '-p

joelmcvie said...

@GEORGE: Yeah, I like the older version of iMovie more.

Back when I was in CCM there were 2 machines that used Media 100i and the editors assigned to them insisted they were just as easy to use as the Avid. Too bad I never got around to learning that editing software.

OMG I love this! Mega acting, ang galing! The best! Parang that "Mamatay ka sana" line from Insiang.

joelmcvie said...

@POYTEE: Hahaha! Ibang level pa rin yung "Mamatay ka sana" line. Ibang klase yun. :-)

Nadriamez said...

cant_u_read said...

e pano pa mag-v-vlog ang TD&RS, kung isang seasoned actor ang kalaban namin sa audience share?

LOL!

i luv it!

CokskiBlue said...

Haha! Tawa ako ng tawa dun McVie ah. You should do this more often. :D

Napansin ko sa vid mo... bumoto ka. Hehehe.

Thanks for joining, man. Nasa links na kita. :D

Nelson said...

I don't think you're acting for the stage -- your expressions say it all! This is really great! Laff ako ever! hee hee hee

joelmcvie said...

@NADRIAMEZ: Huy, OA ha! Salamat. :-)

@RYE: "Seasoned"? Hahaha! Old is more like it. (Shet, andami ko na palang puting buhok, hahaha.) Friend, pag nagsama na kayo ni Dan, TALBOG kahit sino, kahit anong klaseng seasoning pa ang gamitin nila, hahaha!

@COKSKIBLUE: Yeah, well... civic duty and all. :-)

@NELZ: Weeeeeell... I think I could have toned down a bit pa some of the facial expressions. OA for the camera, pero tama lang siguro for the stage. (Shucks, self-critique daw o! Hahaha!)

eam said...

that was a knock out! indeed, mere facial expressions can speak louder than words! first time to visit your site and i'll be coming back for more readings. well done! :-)

CokskiBlue said...

Just shows that words are not a requirement for vlogging. :)

Bravo. :D
