'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.

I think video of the Great Gray Cat bathing could be quite compelling. Especially that thing a feline does when tending to her feet, fanning out each paw like a furry star and using the tiny front teeth to bite deep between the toes to clear out annoying debris and litter granules, then finishing off the routine with a vigorous bite-pull on each toenail to remove the worn-out nail sheath. And usually a headshake and snort at the end when she comes up for air.

Of course you'd need her permission, so I won't hold my breath.
