The trailer video for my Youtube channel.
This video is only a little over a minute but it includes Jessica at Lakewood Park, a bird bathing in a puddle on the road, a finch evading the rain on the window’s edge, and then parakeets Belle, Sparty and Dodger–including slow motion flying.
I don’t really have much to say about this one. It’s my comedy special. Set in mid-February Lakewood Park, it was sort of a disaster and much of it had to be cut in the editing process, so enjoy jokes about drinking and unemployment.
Jessica and I go out in Lakewood, the music about moonshine plays, and the dancing begins! Belle and Sparty the parakeets fly around the house. Then we take a trip across the river to the Coventry area of the east side, after seeing massed seagulls in a steel lands rail yard. And before we’re done, we stop by the Tremont Farmer’s Market ‘Treemart’ in Cleveland’s Lincoln Park.
The first part of this short 44th edition of the podcast features a bike ride on Christmas along Lake Erie by Jessica and me wherein we discover a rainbow over Cleveland. Then the clips at the end are from a couple days later when we drove out to Pennsylvania to visit some family who are loyal members of the Steeler Nation.
Jessica and I took some video of the 4th of July festivities in Lakewood. The parade featured an eagle float, parading bands, and waving marchers, and later on the fireworks flew over Lakewood Park.
Dan and Jessica present the latest episode, from Lakewood, which by our count is #39.
Not long after Barack Obama visited Cleveland last November (which I covered in a previous video), Sarah Palin held a rally one town west in Lakewood, Ohio. I went there and recorded some video.
Let me say this about Palin–I went there not to praise her, but to mock her. I thought Ohio would go for Obama. Seeing Palin up close, I knew she wouldn’t sway anyone with her divisive rhetoric. She prattled on with odd utterances like “heroic and trustworthy deeds” and scaremongering about the “far left.” Whatever. I’m glad she and McCain lost Ohio, and the country.
Jessica and I present a night out in Lakewood, Ohio, at the Winking Lizard. From the outside a small, old building with a grocery store on one side of it and a convenience store named Moon Market on the other, inside it is a cavernous and buzzing hive of eaters and drinkers alike.
As America approaches the 2008 elections, it’s time to elect someone who really represents change—Barack Obama.
This podcast features Jessica and me giving an endorsement and commenting on strategy in the waning days of the campaign, where Obama must talk specifically about putting different policies into effect on a wide range of economic issues. Like a lot of states, I think Ohio, where I live, is ready for change.
Also we play baseball a bit around Lakewood and hang out with the parakeets.
UPDATE: The first year of his presidency was enough to make clear that Obama has been a disappointment.
