LaneVids Vlogary

April 29, 2009

After being thoroughly entertained by @shaycarl‘s Video Diary, I decided to start one myself.

One video, Every Day, One Year, No Excuses!

I have dubbed my the LaneVids Vlogary (a Vlog Diary)!

Day 1: The Beginning…

I hope that you guys enjoy watching it as much as I love creating it. I’m already on Day 4, so if you are not caught up, you need to. We just SOLD OUR HOUSE!

I have decided to put these on my older YouTube channel. Make sure that you subscribe so that you are updated every day of my new videos!

Also make sure you subscribe to my other YouTube channel. This is where I host The iPhone App Show that I created!

This is the Vlogary Playlist, and here is The iPhone App Show playlist

Zelda Trading Cards

April 28, 2009

I promised everyone that I would link up where I got my The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Trading Cards from. Here it is:

The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess Trading Card Sealed Box [24 Packs]

This is a full box of Zelda Trading Cards with 24 packs of cards in the box. That equals to 96 Total Trading Cards for only $23.00. That’s about .25 cents per card!

…OR…

If you just want one pack of cards, you can find them here:

The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess Trading Card Sealed Pack

If you go this route, one pack of cards will cost you about $4. That’s 4 cards at $4 and would equal $1 per card.

I would suggest that you buy the box of cards instead of the individual packs because you get more for your MONEY!

The iPhone App Show – Episode 15: Flight Control

April 27, 2009

Flight Control at first glance looks like a very boring game, but once you play it the first time, you are hooked.

I downloaded this game the other week and I got a high score of 53, so I stayed up for three hours in bed one night trying to beat it, and I did, with a new high score of 62.

I have put out a challenge to everyone. I am challenging you to beat my high score. All you have to do is send a screenshot of your high score to my e-mail, which is in the video or on the right.

Download Flight Control and join the challenge!

Flip MinoHD

April 16, 2009

I’ve been getting the question, “What kind of camera do you use for your videos?” and “Is that video in HD?”

Well the answer to your question: I shoot with the Flip MinoHD Camera.

Out of all of the Flip Video cameras, the Flip MinoHD is the only one that shoots in HD and this one and the Flip Mino are also the only ones that, if you order from the website, you can put your own custom design on it. Here are a few examples from the website:

You can also upload a few of your own designs on the front of the camera, and this is what I came up with! 😀

If you want to save yourself about $30 you can always purchase a regular all black one here. It is the cheapest place on the net that I could find the Flip MinoHD.

At the Flip website, they also have a lot of other designs that you can choose from if you are not artistically inclined:

Another feature that I LOVE about the Flip MinoHD is that it is small enough to fit in my pocket with my iPhone or my wallet.

Flip Video also has a nice little intro video that shows off the shooting quality of the Flip MinoHD, which you can watch here.

Here is my Product Review of the Flip Mino HD:

Here is a review of the Flip Video Ultra Series (my older Flip Camera) & the Underwater Camera Case for the Flip Video Ultra Series Camera.

Phatdippin with LaneVids

April 1, 2009

Sanyo decided that they wanted to get into some Social Media with their new underwater HD camera, the Xacti HD.

They got a group of videobloggers together to put together some fun videos, such as:

iJustine
Rhett and Link
Lisa Nova
and more.

My favorite was Rhett and Link’s Video: Phatdippin

Now Rhett and Link have decided that they are going to have their own contest for the Best Phatdippin Video, and the winner receives a Solar Power Panel.

I came up with an idea, and ran with it today. Enjoy!

If you like what you see, please Rate, Comment, Share, Fave this video, and Subscribe to my channel and my other channel!
