Bliss

...is a great word, but the current OED definition falls a bit short. What follows is a video expansion of its definition. It was inspired by rockstarpoet's recent video. Due to technical difficulties, these videos, like the one I did last weekend, are well below par, but I'm happy to say our video issues will be rectified by this weekend. In the meantime, I humbly offer you this youtubian triptych on bliss.

Bliss: Take 1


Bliss: Take 2



Warning: The following video is intended for a nature audience. Viewer discretion is advised.

Bliss:Take 3

Heehee :-) "If you go out in the woods today, you're in for a big surprise..."

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha! Hopefully we were far enough in the woods that no one saw. I'd get charged for disturbing the peace.

I must say we have the best neighbours. I can spring out of the house with binoculars and a ukulele and they don't even bat an eyelash. But I guess after this many years they know what I'm like.

Shall I show this to your brother?

Brenda Schmidt said...

Well, he was the one who gave me the ukulele. I'm sure he'll be impressed with how I'm coming along! :)

Two people rated "Bliss:Take 2" and gave it one star! One star means poor. Poor!!! Can you believe it! Clearly they don't recognize musical genius when they see it. :)

FYI, Youtube has a new feature, which those of you who viewed my videos on this blog earlier would've noticed. Youtube describes it as "a new embedded player with a scroll-through feature that shows related videos to your embeds." Currently they require you to add code to each video in order to get rid of the feature. I just added to code to the four most recent videos, these three and the one before. I mean, you just can't relate anything to my bliss...

I am agog.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Agog! So, about how many stars out of five is that?

K.A. Random said...

Um, did you read Bob Calder's piece in Freelance about writers appearing to look like they have too much time on their hands?

Apparently, writers never look like they're working. I have no idea where this notion comes from.

I'm sorry I'm so late to comment. Yeesh. Those are quite amazing. I may have to be... inspired... by them for my next video, which some initial shooting and storyboards have been created.

Ariel Gordon said...

I'm locating myself somewhere between agog and good grief...

GM said...

I believe that's "agoog greif"...

Ariel Gordon said...

Except that "agoog greif" sounds like the noise someone would make with a fist in their mouth...

Not that I'm familiar with that noise.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha! I was working, K.A, I was! :)

I look forward to your next video, Rhett. Storyboards! How can I compete with storyboards! Ok, this is war...

Har har Ariel and G. Save up your agoog greifs. You'll need them. H and I are currently at my favourite place on earth and we're up to no good. Ha!

Uh, Ariel, as I recall, I made that very noise last time I stayed at your place. I provided the mouth...

Ariel Gordon said...

Libel! Slander!

(I'm a delicate flower...)

Brenda Schmidt said...

A delicate flower. Of course! That's what I was going to say next...

Rhett said...

Well they aren't so much as storyboards as... loose concepts...

Brenda Schmidt said...

Loose concepts? Ok. Now I'm even more curious.
