Daddy's Birthday Project

By Daddy

Las Vegas — This weekend is special to me, not because I'm pagan but because one of what I call "Cheer Leaders" was born on Halloween. Like a couple of my other cheerleaders, he was a part of the entrainment industry and rather well known. I was a part of the entertainment industry most of my life and I actually started out in broadcasting back in the 70s. Several of my cheerleaders had advocated that I return to broadcasting however I didn't want to return to the politics associated.

The Video Project

A few years ago I finally said: "Why Not?" however veered in a direction that my cheerleaders hadn't expected. I don't remember which video blogger caught my eye. He was having a wonderful time just being an entertainer of the type that I so loved to be forty years ago. I started putting what I call my "Micro Studio" together and ever so slowly I've been adding a piece of equipment at a time whenever I had some extra cash. It took a long time but I have the minimum I need for a one camera shoot.

It seems ironic that I decided to start vlogging on my 65th birthday because for so many people before me that's when they finally retire. I turn 65 on the day after Veterans day so I have only a few weeks to get started.

I want to do a startup video project before launching. I want to tear the current video setup completely down and build it back up (with some changes) while I film the build process. I have this firm notion that when you teach, you learn. There are things for me to learn as I update my 40 year old knowledge to todays tech. I can't afford a huge budget, in fact there isn't a huge budget. All there is enough cash in my "Cash Stash" for a modest stipend so we turn to:

Guerrila Filmmaking

According to Wikipedia "Guerrila filmmaking" refers to a form of independent filmmaking characterized by low budgets, skeleton crews, and simple props using whatever is available. Often scenes are shot quickly in real locations without any warning, and without obtaining filming permits

I have a deadline of 11/12/2020. I'm looking for a Production Assistant who I'm willing to talk through the various tasks. At the end of the day, they will be able learn the basics of lighting, video production, and sound. No experience will be needed. No heavy lifting will be required.

The plan is for a one day shoot in my apartment starting at noon and hopefully finishing by 8pm. It'll need to be done on one of my days off, so we'll be doing it on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. A small stipend can be provided as well as cheap meals. The sofa is tiny but available if need be.

Who Qualifies

There are several people who I feel would work out well and would benefit from the experience in both Las Vegas and perhaps Palm Springs I would prefer that it's someone that wants to the learn the basics of video production with an eye to their own video work or someone that wants to see how someone else does it old school.

I find myself to be suddenly shy in approaching these people directly because I don't want to put any pressure on them to basically give up a day of their life. So I'm doing what I normally do; I'm flinging it into the world with complete faith that it'll bring the right person to me.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress...

Pete Buttgieg Outsmarts MAGA Heckler

By Mikelle Street

Saint Petersburg — It's been a wild month for Buttigieg. As he noted in a speech in St. Pete, Florida Wednesday night the Biden-Harris ticket has asked a lot of him to help the campaign. They asked him to play Mike Pence opposite Kamala Harris in debate prep. Then, time and time again, they served him up to Fox News where he developed a reputation of leaving interviewers stumped. Now they have him flying across the country whipping up support. And on Wednesday night's event in Florida, he was doing just that in hopes to mobilize the LGBTQ+ community when a heckler interrupted Buttigieg's remarks wearing cargo shorts and a MAGA hat, seemingly livestreaming.

Top Federal Election Official Schools Trump:

By Jake Johnson

Unknown — Countering President Donald Trump’s false suggestion Tuesday that tallying votes after Election Day is unlawful, a top official at the U.S. Federal Election Commission said that in fact “counting ballots—all of ’em—is the appropriate, proper, and very legal way to determine who won.”

“An election is not a reality show with a big reveal at the end,” Ellen Weintraub, an election attorney and a Democratic commissioner at the FEC, tweeted in response to Trump’s insistence that a winner be officially declared on the night of November 3. (More)

FCC Takes New Vote on Net Neutrality Repeal, Comes to Same Result

By Lawrence Avery

Washington — In October of last year, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. issued a ruling upholding the Federal Communications Commission’s 2018 repeal of federal net neutrality rules. But the court pointed out three areas of concern, instructing the FCC to go back and re-evaluate the repeal by answering those questions.

On Tuesday, the five-member FCC board decided that the court’s concerns were not concerning at all, voting 3-2 along party lines Tuesday to affirm that the 2015 Obama-era net neutrality rules should remain repealed. (More)

Pride Flags: The Biggest Guide to LGBT+ Rainbow Flags and What They All Mean

By Tris Reid-Smith

Cyberspace — However many rainbow Pride flags you’ve seen, we guarantee you don’t know them all. Until now. It all started in 1978 when a San Franciscan artist, Gilbert Baker, created the first rainbow flag to represent the LGBT+ community. As its designer, he could have slapped a copyright on it, and probably become a millionaire. But instead he allowed anyone to use it – making it a gift to the world. (More)
