Dad Chats on YouTube
I'm using a $20 webcam and the lighting is terrible. I look like something out of a 1950's horror movie. The picture doesn't always keep up with the sound. If there is enough interest, perhaps I'll re-record this with better equipment and proper lighting. Too bad we can't do something about the narrator.
The title of the video is a threat or a promise, depending on your point of view. I hope to do more of these, and to maybe take the time to talk about what being a father means to me. I know to get anybody's attention, they will have to be short, to the point, and meaningful. But that's not easy. As the mathematician Pascal (who loved to write letters to friends and family) once wrote in a letter to a friend, I would have written a shorter letter but I didn't have time.
