    Then you'll love, or at least get, Cazwell's latest vid "No Selfie Control:"

    I tend to look bad in a photo and especially a selfie because I seem to always squint. I discovered it's better to take a short video and find the moment you look best.

    I tend to look bad in a photo/selfies too icon_sad.gif Wouldn't the quality of a pic of that moment in video be bad?

    If you are moving about a lot then yes, otherwise I thought it was fine (on iPad anyway).

    Oh, I see you've relocated & repurposed. What you would have thought content turns out to be placement and presentation.

    Hopefully they're "flexing" the muscle that matters.

    What's the point of content if no one sees it given improper placement and presentation? (From one former ad man to another.)

    Oh no, not me. I've issues with money. I've seen it do too much damage. Though I probably would have done well in advertising but went into the poorhouse to work for a publishing house instead.

    So now I have both my integrity and my food stamps.

    I was gonna comment to your other one but I think I got distracted with a voice call. Then I wanted to go out. So I hit the clubs the other night, what a joke. Besides that no one's in the market for 50 plus, maybe not half but a lot of'm are on their phones. And what's with all the chics? Did someone take the sex out of homosexual?

    There was only a few guys my age. Some looked up at me with desperation in their faces screaming: save me from this. Then there were these three older guys staring into one phone. One noticed me and nudges his buds to look my way. Well they start staring hard, uncomfortably hard, like they couldn't figure out if I was an animated gif or something. I got grossed out and left. So now I don't know which was worse, when I got ignored or while I was being stared at.

    The art of the cruise has been lost to gay history. Sad. You know what I get a kick out of though. Is the thought of these kids getting to our age and being inundated with pictures of themselves when they were young. I bet it kills them early. Death by vanity withdrawal. It's gonna be right up there with attention deficit disorder.

    what's wrong with selfies? as far as i'm concerned, anyone who has ever filled out a profile on any site has taken selfies aka avatars.

    Don't do selfies (except on occasion to update a profile) but thankful for those that do selfies so I can enjoy theirs! icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

    The photos I do take of myself are selfies. I try not to go overboard with them though. lol

    But honestly, I don't really have a gripe with people who do. It's mainly their personality I look for. People would automatically assume someone who does selfish are arrogant and vain and though that can be true sometimes, there are people who are modest and are genuine about it.

    Nothing's "wrong" with it, but once it gets out of control it looks pretty ridiculous, hence the song lol. It's pretty catchy btw icon_razz.gif

    Anyway, I can't believe "selfie" is going to be in the dictionary now lol (the spell check better catch up on that). The only 2 selfies I have on my profile were taken almost a year apart. That's how much I dislike taking selfies, I'm rarely satisfied with them >.

    Great video. Just points out that we've become a vain society and its all about me, but yet look how lonely we are posting pics of ourselves grasping for attention from others. Gone are the days of meeting someone based on their character. If you don't have the "look" you're a nobody. I can't even imagine what it will be like 20 years from now.

    I take selfies and don't see anything wrong with it. I actually bought an inexpensive tripod for my iPhone so I can take better pictures of myself in different scenery. If you got it, flaunt it.
