Iris, my four year old, has convinced herself lately that she loves Star Wars. A few years ago she got a book called ”When Rey met BB-8” which is a child-appropriate version of the scenes in ”The Force Awakens” where Rey is introduced and where she mets BB-8. The book ends just prior to Unkhar Plot’s goons trying to steal BB-8.
I’ve read that book to her a lot and she knows that I really like Star Wars, so I think that is why she really wants to like it as well. So a few weeks ago, after getting tired of reading that book *every night*, I suggested that we’d try to find a comic book version of the whole film and read that. So we bought that from Comixology and since then, whenever I’m the one reading to her at night, we’ve slowly made our way through ”The Force Awakens*
Tonight we read the lightsaber duel between Rey and Kylo Ren and I asked her if she wanted to see it in the movie, which she did. So we watched that scene on the iPad and at least according to herself, she liked it and thought it was exciting but not scary.
So fingers crossed that she won’t have nightmares tonight and that she still wants to like Star Wars tomorrow.
I do need a short handle or selfie stick or something for it. Otherwise all footage will contain my hand.
The audio capturing abilities of it, even in loud environments, is great.
A few shots of me walking down halls are fun, but if all my shots are of me walking down halls that is one boring vlog.
I need some kind of narrative through line. Sure, a lot can be fixed “in post” but if there’s no footage for a narrative, then there’s really no point of making a vlog.
I need to watch more vlogs, if I’m going to make vlogs. Right now it is painfully obvious that CGP Grey’s vlogs are the only ones I watch. I even sort of imitate his speech-pattern when I try to vlog. Embarrassed
So no, there won’t be a finished vlog this time but is was fun to try.
Tonight I started playing ”Link’s Awakening” on the Switch. This is one of the games that I didn’t play as a kid, so I have zero nostalgia for it. I think that was why I had a hard time getting into it when I played it in Virtual Console on the 3DS.
It seems like the Switch version will hook me more, but it does to me like a 3DS game than a Switch game. I guess this one will shine more in handheld more than in TV mode.
I’m looking for a self-hosted alternative to iCloud photo sharing for private photo sharing with the family, and I need your help finding it.
Here’s what’s great about iCloud sharing:
It’s really simple to share one or more photos using the built in Share Sheet.
Subscribers to a shared album gets notified (if they chose to) of new photos.
I as the poster get notified (if I chose to) when comments or likes happen.
The main problem is that it is exclusive to the Apple ecosystem. That excludes part of the family. If I’m going to change things up it would also be nice if the new solution was hosted on a server controlled by me.
So, a self-hosted alternative to iCloud photo sharing, with apps for viewing on both iOS and Android. Any recommendations are much appreciated.
@johnjohnston No, I’m just manually marking it up as such. Maybe it has something to do with the blog-subdomain not being what I had previously put into my micro.blog account as my webpage. I’ve changed that now, so let’s see if this reply works better.
