Crazy Racist Christian Lady Goes Crazy

I feel sorry for any barista that gives her anything but decaf, or forgets her extra whip cause you know this woman gets extra whip…

This video was recorded in a strip-mall coffee shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The lady here was preaching to the patrons and one man decided to stand up to her.

This is the video that inspired me to start a collection of Christian-centered videos. I was going through my archives earlier today and watched it again. I haven’t shared it on my channel before so even though it’s a couple years old, I hope you enjoy. —

Just like how calling yourself an orange doesn’t make you an orange, simply calling yourself a Christian doesn’t make you a Christian. However, screaming craziness does make you crazy, and we can’t take that away from her!

Zacuto Fast Draw Review

Big thanks to the people at Zacuto who were kind enough to loan me an entire D-SLR rig for review a few weeks ago. The timing and setup could not have been better. After a week with the Zacuto Fast Draw, I’m here to share my thoughts on their video D-SLR solution.

My work sent me to Florida to shoot video with a D-SLR and no assistant. Whatever system I chose would have to be incredibly nimble, flexible and comfortable. Originally I was looking at some products from Red Rock Micro to pair with a Nikon D7000 and Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 lens.

It was during a Twitter conversation with my friend Zack that I was pushed into the direction of Zacuto. I remembered Zack had a Zacuto system that he really enjoyed which provided a stable shoulder rig, follow-focus and viewfinder that made fine-tuning focus on shots much easier.

I had never had the opportunity to play with his rig but was in awe, nevertheless.

It wasn’t long after I first tweeted about the need for a good video D-SLR rig that I got a message from Zacuto inviting me to try out their stuff in return for a review. Obviously I took them up on the awesome offer.

Here’s a quick video introduction to some of Zacuto’s D-SLR solutions.

Elgato Turbo.264 HD Reviewed

Over the last year or so I’ve been doing more and more video editing. It started when I got my Kodak Zi8 handheld video camera. It shot pretty decent 1080p HD video at a stupid cheap cost of entry. Getting the Kodak Zi8 was a no-brainer but how to handle the files afterwards proved to be a bit more complicated.

Typical Justin-style, long-winded introduction and review of the Elgato Turbo.264 HD continues below. The short story is the Elgato Turbo.264 HD is worth every penny. Read on to be entertained, informed and generally over-educated on my process and thoughts. Continue reading

The Virgin Mattress is Live!

Today we released episode one of The Virgin Mattress, after a week of pre-release videos. The new first episode was recut, so it’s now faster, funnier and better than ever. Definitely check it out.

Plus, I think you can see the top of my head in one of the shots. No promises.

Also released today were the three winning contest videos. Each of the winners won a $1,300 mattress featuring VertiCoil Edge technology. I wish I could have entered, we need a bed in our apartment in San Francisco… haha.

Check out the winning entries. I’m especially partial to the second one. I imagine the stills from it as photos by Gregory Crewdson, one of my favorite photographers. Really beautifully shot.

So there you go. Hope you enjoyed the videos. Let me know here or on Facebook or by tweeting @TVMSeries. And of course, share away from YouTube or wherever else 😀
