I Want to Live in Another World! The Jay Dee Show 24

My video-making continues to be a bit slow, but I’m finding I’m very busy recently, and I have less time to record videos. Plus the fact that with the science videos, editing takes about 2 hours for a short 4 minute video. This includes doing the thumbnails, but doesn’t include searching for images or writing the script. There’s probably about 5 hours of work for a short 4 minute video.

So, here are the past week’s videos. There are 3 of them. I made only 2 for my main channel and 1 for my science channel.

Starting off with my main channel, the first video I posted is my Top 5 Fantasy World video. I talked about the 5 fantasy worlds I love the most.

And then I finally posted my latest Authors Answer video, only 2 weeks late. It’s about writing child and teenage characters.

Moving on to my science channel, since I did a science video last Saturday, there wasn’t one on Monday. So, the only video of the week was the weekly science news video. This one featured some amazing pictures of Pan, Saturn’s small moon, and some political stuff about the EPA.

That’s all for this week! Let me know what you thought of the videos in the comments section below. Over the next week, there should be 2 regular science videos plus a few videos for my main channel I hope to get done, including a Star Trek one, a book review, and Authors Answer. Maybe I’ll finally get back to doing the Japan videos.

About to Get Political on YouTube

Tomorrow, I’m recording my weekly science news video. It’ll be uploaded on Thursday. Over the first two weeks, I haven’t done anything remotely political, but this week, one of the biggest science news stories has to do with the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States. The chief of the EPA is a climate change denier and has made a conclusion about climate change and carbon dioxide without actually knowing the science.

I’ll be keeping my opinion out of the video, as I just want to report the news on it. But I’ll say it here: you can’t make a scientific conclusion if you haven’t actually studied the science. His opinion won’t change reality. Unless he shows evidence that he is correct, I won’t accept his conclusion.

The same goes for any science-deniers. Deny evolution? Think vaccinations cause autism? Give us the evidence. Not anecdotal evidence. Not opinions disguised as evidence. Not the Bible. Not Andrew Wakefield. If you can show that the science is wrong without any doubt, you’ll win the Nobel Prize.

So, show me the evidence.

A Big Anniversary! The Jay Dee Show 23

Today marks a major anniversary in Japan and for me personally. I had a couple big videos this week, but I only uploaded a total of 3. There’s another I may be able to get up tonight, though.

On my main channel, I only uploaded one video (another coming soon). This video is a continuation of my world building series. This time, it’s about making calendars for sci-fi and fantasy worlds.

And then, moving on to the science channel, I have two new videos, including a science news video and my first video dedicated to a single science topic. The first video is a weekly science news video featuring stories about Hyperloop, Mars, and the white rhino that was killed by poachers.

The second video is a science video about the big earthquake and tsunami in Japan in 2011.

The next week will feature only one science video, though I’ll probably start preparing the April A to Z videos. I’ll also be doing some regular booktube videos.

Which video did you enjoy the most?

Remembering the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan

It’s been 6 years since the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. It’s a very strong memory in my life, and something I’ll never forget. I recently started a new science channel and my first feature topic is about megathrust earthquakes and the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Check it out.

Any comments are definitely welcome.

Here Comes the Science! The Jay Dee Show 22

I’ve still been pretty busy recently, so not as many videos as I’d like. However, I uploaded 6 videos, 3 for each channel. On my main channel, I was able to do some regular videos, though I missed out on the Authors Answer video due to a very busy day and company being over. My science channel had its first 3 videos, including a science news video.

For the main channel, I started off with a brief wrap up for February and a TBR for March.

I then moved on to the World Building series with a video about how to create the planet.

And then the regular Retro Book Review. This time, it was 2010: Odyssey Two.

Moving on to the science channel, I uploaded a couple introductory videos and the first actual science video. Starting off is the channel trailer.

And then I uploaded a channel introduction video.

And then my weekly science news video. In this one, the background is kind of cheap-looking. I really would like a better quality camera, microphone, and backdrop. It was a pretty brief video, too. But check it out, please!

Over the next week, I should have 3 videos for the science channel and around 3 or 4 for my main channel. And of course, I’d love it if you subscribed to my science channel.

Let me know which videos you enjoyed in the comments section below.

A to Z Challenge Video Format

I’ve been thinking about how to do the A to Z Challenge with videos. How do I make the videos? I want them to be simple and easy to make. They won’t be very long, so I want to be able to make them quickly. There will be 26 videos in addition to my regular videos. So, how will I do them?

I’ll be doing 10 facts for each video. I’ll do them when I can, recording them in random places. But I need to do so many of them. Editing must be easy. I won’t be using anything fancy, just my title screen. No end screen, just a thanks.

But I think the most time consuming thing will be figuring out the topics and the 10 facts for each. I better get to work on it.

Any ideas for topics? They’ll all be science related, and I’ll be doing a video for each letter of the alphabet. If you like, give me some ideas in the comments below.

Here Comes the Science!

Finally, just two days before the end of February, my science channel has gone live. Science: Not Just a Theory now has its first video, a 30 second channel trailer. And here it is:

This video may only be 30 seconds long, but it took me a long time to edit. I did the title screen by itself (it’ll be reused) and instead of end card annotations, I used an old-fashioned annotation for the subscribe button.

In case you’re wondering, here’s a little information about what to expect. I will make regular uploads every Monday and Thursday. Mondays will be a video based on a science topic each week. Thursdays will be weekly science news. I’ll also upload the occasional video about urgent news. This week, expect a channel intro video on Tuesday, then a news video on Thursday.
