Document, don’t create.¬†

I don’t know if anyone actual reads my blog or tweets, or if it’s just a numbers game on the Internet. You like so I like you back, vise Versace with follows. Recently I’ve been watch a lot of #garyvee and I agree with a lot of what the guys says. 

In today’s market, or whatever, if you go on YouTube there are so many people “creating” the same content over and over again. So many people though are saying “hey, I’m a content creator” so they take out 50k loans and buy the camera, clothes, studio and skateboard #caseyniestat is using and don’t realize this guy have been creating adds for companies and short films since he was in his 20’s. 

I’ll be candor here. I used to like @caseyniestat and his documentary style videos about #bikelane or #ipodbattery scam. I was even following him when he first did/started daily clogging. It was great stuff. Was. After 365 daily clogs and now he’s named them after episodes it’s repetitive and boring. I unsubscribe do because I don’t want to see him in his daily life with w/e he’s doing. I enjoyed the documentation of him getting there. 

That’s where @garyvee comes in. The dude has a plethora of content and even tho they are very similar, they are all done on scale, in real time. They look real, feel real and have real attraction because they are so raw. I really believe He’s on to something with the whole “document, don’t create” advice he’s throwing out. 

Just my though of the day.

9 Days

Nine days is when summer session begins. I’m taking a Digital Photography class, and Intro to Psychology. Summer is going to be too short this year. The rain here in Colorado is terrible; it’s been raining for off-and-on for 2 weeks, but feels like 2 months.

I visited a new eBike shop this past week. It’s called¬†eSpokes4folks and is located at 7100 Broadway St. in Denver. I also test road a bunch of eBikes while there and because I’m so passionate about bikes and friendly, I have become an independent eBike representative for them. It’s like a dream job right, I can talk and ride bicycles all day and even though it’s straight commision right now, I can still work my other craptastic job.

I’m still debating on which eBike to get, but I’ve narrowed it down to the Pedego City commuter and the e-Joe Koda. Odds are I’m going to go with the City commuter. I love the look of it and the powerful 500w geared hub is quick and I dunno, while riding it I just felt good.

Lately I’ve been getting the urge to start photographing again…it’s weird. It comes and goes like a summer breeze. I attribute its resurfacing to watching the “Casey Neistat” vlogs. He’s a fellow cyclist and takes some amazing time-lapses. It might have something to do with me getting ready to take another photography class… I just needed an ART credit, and nothing else seemed appealing.

I’m still upset about my Alienware, I can’t afford to get it fixed right now, but I will in a few weeks. I just need to buy an external HD and back everything up before I commit to sending it back to Alienware.
