On our way to Colorado and New videos

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Annie, Sammy, and I are on our way to the Self-Reliance Expo in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

We hope all our subscribers and other friends within driving distance will stop by and say, “Hi” tomorrow (Friday) from 10 am to 7 pm and Saturday, from 9 am to 7 pm.

Click Here for more information and directions.

Yesterday, Sammy finished editing two new videos.

The first is a tour of our offices where you can meet the staff and some of our writers.

The second video is also an office tour, but both the video and it’s star are a lot shorter.

Here’s part 3 of our Issue No. 114 cover series:

Here’s part 2 of our 3-part series about making the cover of Issue No. 114:

Making the cover of Issue 114

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Lenie baked seven loaves of whole wheat bread to help us make the cover for Issue No. 114. Following is the first of a three-part video series detailing how we arrived at the cover. Jay Stoler shot and edited the video.

Putting together Issue No. 114

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Here’s another video of our continuing deadline for the next issue. Forgive the poor quality, as it was shot with my old (three years old) Canon. YouTube supports a higher resolution, and we will retire the old Canon and use a new Casio (mine) and a Flip Video (Jay Stoler’s) in the future.

We continue to run tests of video on the blog to iron out a few technical problems. Google is so quick with its indexing that, before we could delete the test blog posts, it sent blog subscribers an alert notice that we uploaded a post. Sorry about that.

Here’s the latest video:

A BHM mascot

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

We’re doing a lot of experimenting with this blog, so be patient as we tinker with the videos we’re trying to upload to it. We’ve experienced a few problems but we’ll work out the bugs soon. As we struggle through the final days of deadline for the next issue, Jay Stoler has been shooting video of the staff working. Here’s a brief video he made depicting the goings-on at the office. We’ll upload others in the coming days and weeks.

Annie arrives as deadline nears

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Annie and Erik have been at our house for a week, and this morning Erik flew back to his Marine Corps unit in North Carolina to await deployment. So Annie and the grandkids will settle in here and wait for his return. There’s plenty to do as we are in the midst of deadline for the next issue, as well as my house remodel. Busy hands and a busy mind makes time go by quickly.

Following is a short video of Erik’s last night at our house:

24 Hours to Deadline

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Twenty four hours left. We’re nearing the end of deadline.

48 Hours to Deadline

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Well, now we’re 48 hours from deadline, so here is a bit more video documenting what we are doing.

72 hours to deadline

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

We’re about 72 hours away from deadline for Issue No. 113, so I thought I’d do a bit more experimenting with video blogging by showing you how we put together an issue. This video is a bit long — about 9 1/2 minutes — but it is condensed (by Jay Stoler) from a 90-minute meeting of editors involved in the final layout.

Keep in mind that all of the articles under discussion have been edited and largely layed out. We know pretty much everything about the articles, art, and ads we are pouring into the issue. But it is still a very mind-consuming job with many details to consider. Hopefully, the video will give you a glimpse into how well we work on deadline.
