Today is the much-awaited 20-Something Bloggers Video Blog day! The theme is "What does 20SB mean to you?" A fitting theme, indeed, and considering I've made some amazing friends through them, I thought the least I could do was participate. Here's the part that's easy to believe: I did this video in one take. I only allowed myself the one take because otherwise I never would have gotten to this part right here. If I had even once reviewed it before uploading it to my computer, there's a strong possibility that I would be huddled in a corner, crying, eating ice cream right out of the container. Luckily, I don't have any ice cream.

In all seriousness, the 20SB network has brought much joy to my life. I've met amazing people, read the stories of amazing writers, made wonderful new friends across the globe (even going so far as to drive to Las Vegas to meet 25 of them all at the same time!), and just generally found a wonderful place on the internet to hang out.

I owe more to other people for this video than myself. Specifically, the folks providing the soundtrack. The intro track is courtesy of Tek Support, who I got to see perform over the weekend and he totally blew my mind. The track is called "Robot Apocalypse." The closing track is by pop electronic duo Air, and is called "Napalm Love."

Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the next one minute and forty-five seconds of crazy. Hopefully this shows up in your reader, but if not, click here to view it on the web page.

Oh, and because this is a Director's Cut, after all, here's a special feature: Behold, the amazing towering tri-pod for my camera! Why yes! those are two large books beneath a ream of paper beneath my MacBook beneath a magazine beneath four novels, why?
