Rather more brightly, this:
The doobleydoo (a word i must learn to spell) for my contribution is:
This is a response to Wheezywaiter's 'Trying To Make The Good Stuff', though it also stands alone.
It's about why i became a herbalist. Basically, many years ago, a friend of mine went vegetarian for reasons of tropic levels and this persuaded me to go veggie myself. Later on, i went vegan, and in order to ensure i stayed healthy, i did a lot of reading up on diet and nutrition.
A few years later, i was looking for a career which i could believe in and was fulfilling, and chose herbalism because it was self-sufficient, ethically very positive, interesting and could not be undermined by skepticism to the same extent as other complementary medicine might be. I was also attracted by how practical it was, over which it scores considerably compared to my "main thing", which is philosophy.
The main drawback with it is that i can't really make a living with it, although ironically i am now better at doing that than i was before i abandoned the idea of doing that!
As i said, i was careful not to make it simply a response to his own video, but as it happens he was also quite helpful and thoughtful in making that choice because it is in fact quite easy to fit into what i'm doing, and this is probably also true of other people's stuff, so that was well-considered. It's part of his "secret poject" (sp?) as it happens.
Tomorrow's video is also ready, since it'll be Sunday. Here it is:
The materials on here will of course be free, as will the Scribd content, but i plan to charge £2 per family (not per child) per session for what i do via webcam.
Also, i'll continue organising uploads into playlists so that people can easily find what they want.
The sound is rather messed-up on this one, unfortunately, and i ended up doing a voiceover with some of it. Also, having in mind YT's attitude towards the commercial content, i bleeped or otherwise omitted references to Skype. I like how blue it looks, which is accidental and due to the snow. It would be interesting to make it even bluer. Sadly, it probably means it won't stand out, but i'm sort of talking to my own lot here, so i'm sure it won't get a load of views but that matters not one jot. I am, however, hoping that it'll be seen by the people by whom it's likely to be perceived as relevant.
I am transferring skills here, because if i do manage to animate and provide graphics, i'll be using what i've learnt on the Other Channel, which is good.
Just tried to draw a graph freehand, incidentally, which would've appeared below, but it was too fiddly and i've changed my mind.
I still have to do a good thumbnail for tomorrow's video.
Oh yes, there's also this (which is obviously not mine):
