Happy Anniversary, Blackcatloner.com

As I continue to adjust to life with a smartphone, I celebrate my site’s 10-year anniversary.

I am also now officially on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/blackcatloner6694

A Quick Outdoor Vlog… And Some Bloopers

Since the weather was nice over the weekend, I decided to fire off a quick vlog on what has been going on and why I didn’t post last week. And I throw in some bloopers at the end (even though I normally do not save my outtakes.)

The Calm Before And After The Storm

This vlog actually consists of two weeks worth of footage, including a walk along the Erie Canal on Easter, a monologue including my placement test at Herkimer County Community College and my two cents on the much-talked about Royal Wedding.

April Fools Bring the Zombie Jesus

This is actually a funny episode here in which I find some random stuff around Herkimer, including a horse statue named Mr. Ed (which I originally thought was put out in the window of a local building as an April Fools joke) and an advertisement outside of a church which inevitably leads to jokes about the Zombie Jesus. Plus you get to see Arthur and my latest attempt to score an HD camcorder, courtesy of a sweepstakes contest sponsored by Coca-Cola. The camcorder I am after is a Sony HD Handycam and the contest ended March 31. I have to wait until April 15 to find out if I won it. I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed.

Since Easter is officially a holiday that revolves around the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, us YouTubers have the tendency to refer to him as the Zombie Jesus. There were quite a few videos revolving around the Zombie Jesus coming out at Easter time. So this year, I too decided to jump on the bandwagon. What inspired me to do this was when I was walking home from work one day and I saw an advertisement in front of a church telling people to “beat the Easter rush” to church. That is obviously one Easter rush I just as soon avoid, being that I am not religious and all. Still I couldn’t resist the urge to take that idea and run with it.

Summer Came Early This Year

It seems like I’ve been reduced to doing at least one blog a month lately. Once again, my status on the Internet is increasing more and more, most notably on Twitter. Last weekend, I was at 180 or so followers and by the end of that weekend, I found out that I had pretty close to if not over 250 followers. Basically a tenfold increase which is awesome in regards to my future on the web.

Anyway, this weekend was hotter than hell. Yesterday, it was almost 90 degrees out and it’s supposed to be in the high 80’s both tomorrow and Tuesday. I had originally planned to shoot my video for the longest HD video outdoors yesterday but I underestimated how hot it was supposed to get and my plans there were defeated. So I’ll have to wait until probably tomorrow to film that. I am also contemplating doing a video about the Craigslist killer because number 1, he’s big news and 2, he was originally from the Mohawk Valley so we’ll see. But as far as the weather goes, it is a safe bet to say that summer has come early this year.
