“Sandra,” you are most likely not thinking, “it has been an eternity since you’ve yammered in our faces about Disney. Why so taciturn?” Or something to that effect. 😉 Well, that’s because I’ve moved the majority of my Disney blindness over to both Instagram (find me at park_or_perish, or click on the IG link in my sidebar) and YouTube.
I’m particularly proud of our little YouTube channel, Park or Perish!, because I am notoriously tech-unfriendly. I have accidentally destroyed more expensive electronics than my parents definitely would have preferred (on our wedding day, my dad pulled Mr. Finger Candy aside and, in his usual droll manner, said, “Well, she’s “yours” now. But you do know she destroys electronics, right?”) and in university an emergency infusion of McDonalds was the only thing that held off a complete breakdown during the Online Editing Session From Hell, 1999 edition. Holy crap I’m old. Anyhow, I’m bad with tech. Basically, if it deals with “stuff,” I will find a way of accidentally trashing that stuff and, I dunno, stapling it to myself or something. I’m really kind of an incredible klutz for someone who took dance lessons for 20 years.
But I digress. As always. What I was trying to say is for someone so inept at the “business” side of blogging, and just generally anything having to do with tech, I’m super proud of myself for learning a little video editing program so I could launch our YouTube channel. I’ve pulled off some not totally unfortunate edits, and I love to edit sound – it’s nitpicky work, but so satisfying when your timing finally snugs into place seamlessly. YouTube also represents its very own particular little publishing quagmire; it took me more than a couple of test runs to work out the bugs. None of this stuff comes naturally to me, so I’m really quite pleased that I’ve been able to jump in with both feet regardless.
So that’s where the Disney has scampered off to – it went off to seek adventure in the great wide somewhere known as Instagram and YouTube! I made this video this weekend, and I thought I’d share it with you. It’s all about the Disney nevers you know we’ll probably never actually respect; Disney has a particular knack for dulling one’s sense and reason, or at least our sense and reason. I hope you’ll check it out, and thanks so much for being a great virtual neighbour!
