So, I guess I still had more to say about Michael Wesch's Youtube video, "An Anthropological Introduction to Youtube". Once I finished my previous post a little while ago, I grabbed my Ukulele and started surfing Youtube for some videos that could help me out. As I was watching different videos, I couldn't help but think about the section in Michael's video about peoples first time vlogging and how awkward and difficult it can actually be. As I was thinking about this, I remembered that I had actually decided last week to document my first day with my Ukulele via Video Log. So I fished the video out of my Photo Booth and gave it a watch. Man oh Man did Michaels video ever preach the truth! My first attempt is probably one of the most difficult things I've had to watch myself do. I had no idea how to sit, what to do with my hands, where I should look, and even how to talk (I talk so fast at some points that I'm not even sure I'm speaking English) To my surprise I also had a visitor in my video that I didn't even know was there. He however doesn't seem to mind being on camera seeing as what he does through the course of the video.

What do you think? Was it as hard for you to watch as it was for me?
