Alright, so it's not a "Walter Cronkite Moment," but I just posted a bulletin on my YouTube channel. If you are subscribed, or you are lurking, you will see it. Here it is, with more info for FECCers.
One is up!!

The next one, I took original photographs for, today. That will be "And The Grass Won't Pay No MInd." I hope you will like my photography. It's kind of in the "pre-darkroom" state. I mean, I have to edit them properly. It was a wonderful day!! I had Sunrise downloaded to my Kindle, most of it, and some blues from RCA, and I was listening and reading at the pond, after I took my photos for the video, which is soon to come. Right here in this topic.
"Tupelo" being done,I have discovered more hidden secrets in Windows Movie Maker (and threw out 50 bucks on PowerDirector, which promiseland subtly and wisely hinted that I should NOT get, but I did - don't need any of those super-duper programs). Windows Movie Maker, which is on most everyone's computer, can do all the bells and whistles: transitions, the works. And some neat features I have already used. Wished I had a few cooler transitions, but that's ok. I'm very happy with "If I Can Dream." Wish I could do the other ones again, but they are very direct, and perhaps that's best. They convey the message bluntly.
Fellow YouTubers: I don't necessarily like using fancy stuff just for the sake of doing it. Stuff spinning around, breaking into pieces . . . only if it's necessary. Only. So, when I do "Tupelo," I hope you will get as excited by the video as the song is exciting. One of the most exciting musical productions you have heard! Have you heard it? Then go to ITunes, Amazon, or any music download-retailer and get "the single." You can also get the album it's on; it's a great album. (Lord, I hope I didn't misplace it when I cleaned up my office!)
The other video, which is to come, will be taken from original photographs, and perhaps some video, that I took today. Might include a little Elvis-happy-in-the-sixties home movie footage, too. Dunno. Whatever makes it work well.
I don't want to crank 'em out. I know I'd probably get more subscribers that way, but no. Each one will be special.
So, get ready for the next "bulletin"!! As soon as the first one is posted. I will embed the video in this post when it's done.
So, if you're interested, bookmark a link to this post, because that's where it will appear. And on the channel, but I mean, for us here.
And now, folks out there in TubeLand, a word from our sponsor . . .
