Topical Mishmash

A lot of stuff has been going on recently, here are many of those things... Forgive me for the length, horrible dancing, and the ugly goatee

Topical Mishmash
Music: Belle and Sebastian - Cover (Version)


  • So much to talk about. My facial hair is the same way. It has taken months of growing, shaving, and regrowing to get it capable to grow a beardish type thing and a soul patch in about a week. Also, I miss Meijer. Sweetness on the GR Node101. I wish we'd get one here in Tacoma. Maybe I should start one... Cheers.

  • Putting it out there!

    Nose hairs and all.

    I didn't know that about Frito's.

    I am enlightened, thanx...

  • I use the same CONAIR trimmer to tame by beard. It usually works well but once in a while instead of cutting it will rip out a particularly stubborn whisker. Ouch.

  • We love you josh. That was great. I almost prefer you mish mash to shorter films (though we love them all) so that we can see what life is really like. No bordom here. Also, with respect to your facial hair, remember your dutch heritage, it is very hard to grow facial hair before thirty. Just my experience with all the dutchy guys in my family.

  • And now Nate comments from school...

    You have to be one of the biggest inspirations! We're still all about the episodic thing and are completely forgetting to consider the vlogger audience that craves real-worldness.

    Any tips for changing this attitude?

    Also, you bugger for getting onto NPR first! Absolutely sweet!

    We'll have to talk some time about pulling vlogging into academia. I've been thinking about teaching a Node 101 up here . . . we definitely have the resources and the community.

    Scraggly beards of the world, unite!

  • congrats on finishing college. I bet it feels great. I'm almost there. with a full time job, it seems you have a lot of spare time on your hands now. i suppose no homework is the trick.

  • Such a tease in the beginning! Yum! Congrats on finishing college, that is really awesome. Most people in my area start college, then never finish it.

  • I wish my conair trimmer had a nose hair attachment. Then again, I have heard they can be painful. All the best to ya as you start up and teach at the new node.

  • That was some good old fashioned fun. It was like a $1 surprise bag of goodies. It didn't seem like 6 minutes, and I wished it went on longer. I liked the music a lot to.

    I agree with your friends, the beard is trecherous. Curiosity killed the cat, and it will be the your doom. I also can't grow a beard in the right places...but the top of my nose sprouts hair. Itsdisgusting.

    I'm looking forward to meeting the people at your vlogger 101!

    I carry a printout of the PDF everywhere I go with my camera ... haven't needed to haul it out yet. It might come in handy if you ever get hassled for filming again.

  • Congratulations on finishing college!!!

    I was amazed of how little ingredients had those Fritos Scoops... I though you were going to read for a while there...

  • lookin' good/ i got the same problem with the facial hair, so i opted to go with the chin-only beard, you should try that, its sophisticated, a little bit artsy, and shows you eat your spinach

  • I hate to break it to you, but corn isn't just corn anymore. Unless there an organic, no GMO product label then the corn you're consuming is likely to have all sorts of weird things in it you'd not expect to eat. Genetically modified corn (which is _big_ in modern industrial agri-business these days) is a busy plant. Besides just growing and producing offspring, corn now produces its own pesticides, kill butterflies and are quite the marvel of genetic engineering... yummmmmm.

  • Wow, Fritos are just corn? Who knew! It makes me want a Frito pie (chili poured over Fritos with melited cheese on top).

    I can totally forgive the length (didn't notice) and the dancing (very cute).

    But not so much the goatee. It's just so shockingly blond!

    By Blogger missbhavens, at 3:02 PM, January 20, 2006  

  • the things that complete your goatee
    are called "connectors". I too grow cheezy
    facial hair. It's a blessing in disguise,
    shaving sucks. P really enjoyed the dancing bit,
    but thought the nose-hair trimming was
    going a bit too far.

  • wow your going to be a like a professor of vlogonometry...no really if I lived anywhere near Grand Rapids, well then you couldn't keep me from your class...well anyways since I've stumbled upon your vlog i've subscribed to ya...you do have a unique way of presenting your vlogs, my wife says that you have a brutally honest quality about you...anyways, keep on vlogging, and check out my vlog when the time is right...

  • As far as the chips, Fritos are much better than others, but you might want to look for natural & organic chips which use organic corn and sea salt, and you definitely want to avoid hydrogenated oils. Now about the background music, it sounds familiar... is it something you had the rights to use? :)

  • Dude...I need a Magic Monkey Bob t-shirt!! Where can I get myself one of those?

    Also, I grow spotty facial hair as well.

    By Blogger Tim, at 5:54 PM, January 21, 2006  

  • congrats on your graduation and what a great job teaching people to video blog!
    And I never thought those TGI fridays chips were all that great anyway.

  • whew, lots of stuff going on. Lots of hot hair / clothing coming off.

  • CONGRATULATIONS on finish school Josh. There's a LOT to be said for someone who completes college. Your education will take you far! No having to flip burgers or deliver pizzas; not that any thing is wrong with that as someone has to do it but you just have so many more opportunities.

    Best of luck to you in your endeavors.
