This year, Classical Gas Emissions will be celebrating 10 years of torturing it's readers. I've never had a personal project that has lasted for this long, so it's very worthy of celebration.
I knew I wanted to do something for my 10 year anniversary, but I was a bit stumped as to what. Initially, I had decided that I wanted to release a DVD which consisted of me going out, shopping for stuff for the blog, and possibly interviewing a few of the local people who influenced some of the things I've posted. I honestly didn't have the time last year to pursue this, because life gets in the way.
Recently, I have changed my focus. For the longest time, I've been wanting to do something more video-based, but I wasn't sure what. I kinda wanted my own channel on Roku. I would love even more to have my own local TV station, but that's never going to fucking happen. Instead, I've decided to actually have a dedicated show on my Youtube channel. What a great idea! It's about fucking time! Took long enough!
The way I see it, I'm always doing something around the house that's somehow related to technology, so why not set up the camera and record me working on it? It doesn't take much time out of my life to set up a camera and a microphone. Of course, I will be featuring some of the atrocious audio and video I've been posting here just to make the videos more "interesting". I already have some footage kicking around that I can edit down into an episode or three, so I've got a bit of a head start.
I'll still be posting here on the blog. The Youtube show called "Tech of the Century" will just be an extension of the blog rather than a replacement for it. Like I said, this is stuff I'm usually doing anyway, so I shouldn't have to take much time away from this place, if any.
So, in honour of 10 years of Classical Gas Emissions, I wrote and recorded a new song, put together a bunch of video clips, extracted a cover of the song "Classical Gas" from a CD I found at a thrift store by a relatively unknown musician, and made a preview of things to come!
Enjoy, and stay tuned!
