Celebrating Art & Writing on Youtube

February 29, 2008

Welcome to the First Real Youtube Art & Writing Contest

From the Press Release:
There remains no category on YouTube for art and literature. Which isn’t to say writers and artists aren’t taking advantage of the site. One artist, who goes by the handle ValsArtDiary, records her weekly process of making a painting, puts the video on YouTube, and within hours of posting has bids for her work Ebay. Take that Picasso!

To prove to the YouTube brain trust that there is a demand for good writing and fine art, Jaffe is launching a literature-and-arts contest dubbed “TubeArts”. Sponsors Carmun.com, a social networking site geared to help students write academic papers, and FracturedAtlas.org, a non-profit that helps provide artists with important services like healthcare, are each contributing $600 in prize money. Additionally, Fracture Atlas has offered all artists who participate in the contest a free one-year membership to their site.

The contest video can be seen at youtube.com/jackdanyells , Jaffe’s YouTube channel. And the contest judges are all YouTubers with outstanding credentials.

It was a long hard day in the outback, and my companion and I had been tracking this terrible little beast for 6 days and 3 nights. Our self esteem, vitaminwater and malt balls were all running when we heard something.

Brooke lept forward with a Guatemalan lublub spear (‘lublub’ meaning ‘pointy’ in the Guatemalan native tongue, Guatemalopean). She saved my life, and I’m indebted to her. She’s the only lublub for me.

Welp, I’m on Stickydrama.

Stickam review

Sorry Mom they got me. I’m on stickam’s most popular web tabloid. This is what I get for mocking Chris Crocker

Such is life. But thank god I kept my pants on.
Actually the lads over at noodz central caught wind of my Put it Back petition and have it featured in their latest blog entry.

Day 2: Put it Back

February 15, 2008

So among the beautiful new features of stickam is disappearing camslots. As a guest in someone’s room, as windows are bounced around to and from the main screen you’ll start to see something awesome.
Something like this.

Yep multiple hosts or undefined blank slots will take over.

Way to go Beta Test Stickam.

As a quick fix, try ignoring and then unignoring the people you can’t see.

For a better fix.

Put it Back!
