A moody French themed tour through "My Inanimate World"--as if!

Today’s Daily Create challenge was a video tour of our favorite inanimate object. I didn’t have actual video on hand, so I really did a video-captured slideshow with music using the video editing app called Replay.

It should have been a whole lot shorter, I know that, but once I got Siri Vik on the sound track, I couldn’t stop until the song was done–even then, I had to tack on a bit of her performing at the end–coda #2!

Again, as so much I have been doing the last few months, this is more in the nature of a personal journal entry, which inevitably means that if it were to be a truly published piece anywhere except on my blog, it would need to be scripted, edited, re-thought and re-shot. But journals are rough cuts of the mind: what-I’m-thinking-to-myself-right-now.

  • Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari. Superb Blog!

  • I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thank you

  • Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it, you may be a great author.I will always bookmark your blog and definitely will come back down the road. I want to encourage that you continue your great writing, have a nice morning!

  • I do like the way you have presented this specific problem and it really does give me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, from just what I have witnessed, I basically trust as the responses stack on that people stay on issue and in no way get started upon a soap box regarding some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this superb point and though I do not really concur with the idea in totality, I value your point of view.

  • Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  • Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks

  • Hello there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

  • Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

  • I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content in your case? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome web log!

  • I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thank you

  • With everything which seems to be building inside this specific area, many of your points of view happen to be somewhat exciting. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your entire idea, all be it exhilarating none the less. It would seem to us that your opinions are actually not completely justified and in simple fact you are yourself not really thoroughly confident of your point. In any event I did enjoy reading through it.

  • Throughout this great design of things you receive an A+ with regard to hard work. Where exactly you actually confused me personally was first in all the facts. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, allow me say to you just what exactly did work. Your text is really persuasive and this is most likely the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can certainly notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not necessarily certain of just how you seem to unite the points which help to make the final result. For now I will, no doubt yield to your issue however trust in the near future you actually connect your facts better.

  • It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  • Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • Hi my name is Janette and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of calling you. I came to your Inanimate World | Mind On Fire page and noticed you could have a lot more hits. I have found that the key to running a successful website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get targeted traffic from and they let you try their service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my site. Visit them here: http://pixz.nu/2fqB

  • Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, good site!

  • Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  • Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site? My blog site is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would genuinely benefit from some of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Thanks a lot!

  • Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

  • My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome weblog!

  • With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

  • Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have created some nice methods and we are looking to swap methods with others, please shoot me an email if interested.
