New Look!

Posted in Blog, News, Web on August 26, 2007 by blakejohnson

Well, for the few readers I have, mostly due to my lack of promotional skills, I have changed the design of the blog drastically.  It used to be a dark, black layout which looked very cool, and I liked it a lot, but it needed a change, so here it is, I browsed through the layouts on WordPress for a bit and came up with this one.  It’s almost the complete opposite of the previous.  Light, clean, gentle on the eyes, and I think it’s just a nicely-designed layout.  There’s good access to each link and whatnot and I like it the way it is.  So there you go, I know I don’t post very much, but maybe this’ll be more attractive than my words, it is fairly pretty, after all.

Stop The Violence

Posted in Friends, Life, News, People, School, Video, Web, YouTube on August 24, 2007 by blakejohnson

Hey everyone, I met a guy a few months back who’s trying to organize an
effort against Violence in the form of a video collective/group of
YouTube where people can post their videos about violence in their
area, their lives and in general. I’m a part of the group and am almost
done with a nearly 20-minute documentary on the subject of violence at
my old high school. I want to ask all of you to at least join the group
and help spread the word about the group on YouTube. If you can post on
forums, blogs, anywhere, tell friends, whatever, join the group and
tell other people about it. Whoever can record video with a video
camera, still camera, webcam, whatever you’ve got, or even an audio
file with your computer’s microphone, do something to contribute and
post it on the group’s page. There is no definite final product out of
this, just a group of people wanting to stop violence to some degree in
whatever manner they can. So, without any more from me, here’s the
link, and please join the effort:

Thanks!
