OK, so it was cooler than I might have guessed

This, this is the man. Watch his amazing handling of light and focus and music on the most recent posting. And then watch his "hard day." This is an artist getting very real! In a way that would have been virtually impossible before this medium existed!!! (No, I am NOT drunk or high.) And he perfectly combines randomness (a trope) with many of the other blog tropes.

And after you watch a bit more of his art, try watching his blogito ergo sum. Although it's really sum, ergo blogito.

Also, this is a pretty funny and heartbreaking riff on quotidian alienation and estrangement. It's soooo wrong, but we've all been there. It's sort of de Chirico, married to Charlie Chaplin. Wait. You could say that about Beckett, too. Make sure you read some of the comments on this. They're crucial

This is not quite as essential.
OK, at 5 minutes it's LONG, but but I've paid $8.50 to see movies that did not blend humor, action and pedestrian safety so artfully.

If it halts, press the pause button, then press play. (Thank you, Aldon.)

Colin- Did you mean his firt blog entry or his first video? I watched the first video and it was just him talking about how he's going to start posting videos now. It didn't sound like what you were describing.

It may be too late to get this in the general class pool, but this is well worth watching...

You could probably jump around aimlessly, but try starting at the beginning and watching them like episodes. Seinfeld dark?

The post on why he vlogs gets to the heart of almost all blogs. Plus I like that he's sitting on the toliet as he's thinking. I guess he doesn't take himself too seriously.
