YouTube: Kmart

I consulted a client of mine on using YouTube today. 

It ended up being very informative for me. Maybe more informative than it was for el clientos. 

While I was looking for an example of a corporate entity using YouTube, we stumbled on Kmart’s page. It’s really well done. I haven’t found other corporate entities that have done a better job. 

If you know of any, please let me know. 


I got married last August. 

Eight. Eight. Eight. 

I’m in love. I understood marriage after I heard about it from an evolutionary perspective. It was from an interview with Richard Dawkins. He explained that monogamous marriage is the most effective and harmonious way to a positive life and relationship. It’s an excellent way to rear children. Before that point, marriage was a rule — although explained to me as such — it is hardly biblical. I searched and searched the Christian bible for a rationale for marriage, and found nothing except for the traditional views explained by literature and spoken history. 

I think everyone should have the right to marry. 

I changed my mind from the way I “believed” as a child/adolescent, because I have no right to tell someone they can’t marry the person they love. Neither should the church or any person associated with a church. 

Straight. Gay. Lesbian. Transgender. 

My brother in law is gay. He’s lived with his partner for longer than 10 years. They are not married. He wears a wedding ring on his left hand, and is certainly someone I look at as a role model. 

Soon this rubbish about gay marriage will go away and it will live in the past with women’s rights, civil rights and all kinds of issues the church effectively stymied from progress. 

I saw this video over at Hemant Mehta’s brilliant blog. It’s a good reminder.

My friend and colleague Audia put this video together in 2007 for a client who wanted to deliver a documentary style piece encouraging their company of their excellence in customer service. 

Let me know what you think. Enjoy. 

Allow myself to introduce … myself.

I am a photographer. Like other photographers, I started young. I photograph because I like to tell people, “This is what I saw and how I saw it.” 

My background: I had the Fisher Price PixelVision 2000. My brother and I made movies with the family video camera as well. 

Pictures like, “Blood in the Tub I” and “Blood in the Tub II”. 

My first still camera was a Kodak Picture Disk.

Impressed, I’m sure. 

Simply stated, I make visual art. 

I learned the mechanics of manual photography on my high school yearbook staff and through college course work. Now I stand behind motion and still cameras as often as I can. I run my own company, r25 productions, since 1999. I also do some graphic design. I edit video. 

My life is my work. I don’t have to receive a paycheck to tote around cameras. 

I am happily married. We are trying for children. 

This blog will focus on photography, art, religion, absence of religion, current affairs, my opinion of your opinion, your opinion of your opinion, etc. 

I will likely repost videos and photos from web sites that I follow. 

And I will certainly post original content. 

Thanks for stopping by. Drop me a line and let me know what you think.
