For my new blogging schedule, I’ve decided to use Tuesday as my day to talk about random or interesting things. The topics can be art-related, but they don’t have to be.
Today I’m going to talk about a YouTube channel called Pogo. The channel is run by Christopher Nicholas “Nick” Bertke, a South-African electronic musician, who now resides in Australia.
Nick Bertke makes digital music, using sound clips from movies, to create the “lyrics”. The music is kind of strange, but fun to listen to. Sometimes you can understand the lyrics in the music because he includes full words or sentences, but sometimes the vocal clips are so short, that you’re not actually hearing words, you’re just hearing syllables put together to create a song.
Here is a fantastic Star Trek themed video, in which Nick Bertke is Captain Picard:
Here’s a pretty song comprised of clips from Disney movies:
And lastly, a Pogo music video comprised of Donald Trump clips:
My family and I went to see the Total Solar Eclipse on the path of totality this last Monday. It was truly amazing and an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend that you make plans to see the 2024 Solar Eclipse in North America .
On the drive to Princeton, Kentucky (where we watched the eclipse), I made a sketch of my dog, (who went with us on the trip), looking at the eclipse with his solar glasses.
I edited a short video of only the total eclipse part, where the moon completely covers the sun, and then moves away from it. This is on my personal YouTube channel, Susanna Holdren:
I’ve taken a break for the last week or more, because it’s the end of the summer, but I hope to be getting back in the zone and starting a new series, as well as a few bigger projects.
I uploaded my first YouTube video under my PixelMist YouTube account!
It’s really short, and nothing great, but at least it’s a start. I’m trying to do the “Vlogust” challenge, where you vlog everyday in August. I can’t really manage uploading everyday, so I’m trying to do one every week. That means I really should have another one up in a couple days, but I’m not sure, it might be 3 or 4 days before the next video.
Let me know what you think of the video, and if you have any video ideas or suggestion/questions, feel free to leave a comment. Until next time!
