OK, I'm sorry but I love blip.tv. The Blip folks had a party last week to celebrate their success. They were kind enough to invite the blip-users yahoo group.... Thanks Blip.tv! Without these guys my vlog would not exist and if anyone is setting up a new vlog I urge you to give them a shot(http://blip.tv). Easy crossposting to your blog and the Internet Archive, too. Ok, I'm sorry to be a commercial but it's great to see such a nice bunch of people do well.

Why I videoblog. Why I watch videoblogs. Why I believe videoblogging can be a powerful force for expanding our perception of communities and individuals and for breaking down stereotypes. It's way too long, I appologize. I talk too slow and too much. I am working on that. I had a lot on my mind. For the nurses: I do discuss why I blog/vlog about my nursing school experiences and i discuss culturally sensitive nursing.

For the folks whose work I used: Those of you whose licenses I was not sure about, I contacted. The folks with a CC share alike license, I just used your footage. I hope that is ok, please contact me if there is a problem and hopefully we can work it out.

WARNING: There is some profanity in this one as part of the "White Guy" sequence. Just to make a point. No, I don't believe that "All White Guys are (expletive deleted)..." Usually when you say ALL X are Y when it comes to people, you are looking for trouble. Usually.

Grades and Recharge

The grades are in: B+ accross the board. Not bad for someone worried about failing at one point. Now a couple of weeks to recharge in preparation for the next big push. Just read a great book, "The Color of Water" by James McBride. An excellent read, I recommend it highly.

Knob Joke

Knob Joke

There has been an intense discussion on the Yahoo Videobloggers list about sexism in the vlogosphere.  Someday, I may actually have something intelligent to add to that discussion.  Right now, though, I am just going to tell a knob joke. 

This post requires some backstory to fully enjoy - If so inclined, the links are here:

Sexism debate 

CAUTION: Includes some fairly tame profanity.  If that bugs you - please don't watch.

Reflections on my OB clinical rotation, the home strech of this semester in nursing school, and life in general.  Things are definitely looking up.  Now it's time to study, study, study for finals next week.  Then it's three weeks off before summer session!
