World's first mile race shot on Google Glass

Videre est credere.

It happened on July 8, 2013.

Can't get enough?

Here's 

another mile race video on my Glass, recorded two weeks later on July 22, 2013.

'Why are you hot to livestream from your phone?'

Screen Shot 2021-10-02 at 10.36.40 AM

I thought no one would ever ask, but xoxoxoBruce, as is his wont, did the heavy lifting for the rest of you when he raised this burning question in a late night comment on October 1.

He wrote:

... what, do you plan to livestream your 5K runs?*

Gray cat bathing?

The weather?

I mean you're not going to broadcast the Daytona 500, or Macy's Turkey Day Parade.** 

Or is this a matter of principle, stick it to the man?

The answer, invoking the very old version of the SAT: None of the above

The primary reason I need to acquire YouTube mobile livestream capability sooner rather than later is because TypePad, which has hosted bookofjoe since I went live on August 24, 2004, will one day stop working.

It will not give any notice.

It will come out of the blue, bookofjoe going dark.

In December 2020 Typepad quietly stopped accepting new users (below),

and I have believed since then that the typing is on the wall.

Once I go live on YouTube via my phone I'll immediately start a livestreamed blog/vlog that doesn't require TypePad.

I'd prefer to do that while Typepad's still got a pulse.

Jim Jarmusch's collages

3

Who knew the filmmaker has been quietly making small collages on newsprint — with faces switched onto other bodies — for 20 years?

2

Not me, until a recent New York Times story featured them.

4

DeepFakes before there was DeepFakes.

5

Above and below, exemplars of the more than 500 he's created.

6

More?

7

See them in person at his show at James Fuentes (55 Delancey Street, Lower Manhattan; 212-577-1201) through October 31.

8

Not planning on being in Manhattan?

Buy his book.

Perhaps my Crack Gotham Correspondent©® will stop by and give us an in-person report.

Stranger things have happened.
