Who is Your Secret Vlogger Crush?

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the June 16th, 2006

We were recently at Vloggercon 2006 in San Francisco where GETV’s Irina Slutsky prodded videobloggers to reveal their secret vlogger crush. Now that these secrets are out of the bag, there is no going back.

    Here is Beka’s URL: She Is awesome… and I am surprised that I seem to be the vloggercon heart-throb… I have some competition with Schlomo though…

    I would like to add Casey and Zadi to my vloggercon crush list.
    preferably, each of them sitting on josh leo’s shoulder’s in some sort of vlogger pyramid formation.

    thank you.

    THAT WAS AWESOME!!! It’s amazing how holding Vloggercon in San Francisco made us all gay… I was actually going to say Amanda Congdon but went with my male vlog crush instead, I only found out afterwards that she said me! Hilarious.

    Here’s a list of those I was not able to mention (in no particular order):
    – Jay Dedman: Why didn’t anyone tell me he looks that good in person? I don’t believe 320×240 captures his true intelligence and heart.
    – Chuck Olsen: too damn good to be true; I give thanks to the Flying Spaghetti Monster every day for Chuck…
    – Mario Librandi: Amanda was going to say Rudy first in her response but she said me instead and I think we both have great taste in males…
    – Josh Leo: killer looks and personality… I just want to hug him but feel too shy to do so…
    – Bekah Havens: exactly like me on the inside…

    Honourable mentions: Andrew Congdon (he loves The Bruce), Andrew Baron (smiles like a mischievous child), Michael Verdi (simply rocks), Schlomo (I want a hug from him every day of my life for no good reason), Ryanne (reminds me of a part of my self that I haven’t been for a while… a social concious political rights freedom fighter), Violet Blue (because although we both have sexy images, we’re both geeks at heart).

    Love you all, even if I neglected to mention you by name.

    Thanks for the plug Bill! I’ve come to terms with my stature so I didn’t mind looking up at you all weekend.



    My secret vlogger crushes are Bill, of course, and everybody over at the Pan —

    Also, for the record — as good as folks look on their vlogs, everybody looks better in person. We need to go highdef!

    I neglected to mention one of my biggest crushes… Chris Weagel of Human Dog:

    I’ll try to stop crushing on everyone now… (I love you Eddie).

    This is really a great video. An impressive amount of meta data (love) being exchanged.

    RoboGames 2006 Coverage (With Videos)…

    Yesterday I was at RoboGames with Geek Entertainment TV; today and tomorrow I’ll be doing that *and* (as I related in this post) judging robot competitions. It’s astounding how many countries are represented there; it’s truly an international compe…

    I left out so many crushes! Irina – I totally left you out! So many more… 😉

    Oh Bekah… Rudy is going to be so disappointed. You see, YOU are HIS secret vlog-crush!

    No, silly Casey…I didn’t mention Rudy because I know all about your martial-arts background!!!

    ‘Fraid of you!

    Wow, there is a lot of love in the video blogging community! Do we have to wait another year before we all meet up again? I mean, seriously, now that we’ve come out with all this “crush business” the next conference should be a lot more interesting ;-)?!

    And, like Zadi, I left out quite a few crushes…quite a few…hmm…glad Irina lives far away or I’d for sure spill the beans to her…

    Violet Blue did not jump in the pool, and I did not dive in after her.

    Other than that it was a perfect weekend.

    This was so funny.

    I’m going with Amanda Congdon over here. I’ll bet that Swedish American Hall is located in some kind of bizaro vortex that turns straight men gay and gay men straight.

    Bekah- Be not afraid… after all, you’re one of MY crushes… so you are protected from my vengeance!

    Amber- One word… VLOGGERCAN

    OK, next Vloggercon we have a big game of spin the bottle. Throw in a working hot tub, buzz butler and we have all the ingredients we need for a followup episode.

    i told violet i dont do cold water, but i asked the clicktv guy to turn on the hot tub and he said it didnt work! so if there is a body of water that is nice and hot (or evern just very warm) i’m SO in it. yes. spin the bottle. as long as richard bf is there. i hope he has some frequent flyer miles left.

    Good suggestion, Eddie… With the amount of people I have crushes on, I can’t lose!

    Where are we? Rise of the Videonet…

    At my session today at Supernova, with JD Lasica (Ourmedia) as our moderator, and Jeremy Allaire (BrightCove), Jonathan Taplin (USC Annenberg Center), and Robert Levitan (Pando), I mentioned some stats and ideas, and I said I would blog those items…….

  24. on June 28th, 2006 at 12:25 pm

    I wanted to say Irina herself but I was too shy.

    But I also love the Pan People, but only for their talent not their looks.

    I was also disapointed to hear that not one person considers me to be their vlog chrush. Oh well, at least I know Meiser likes me.

    […] 1. Mini tv show-style — It’s Jerry Time or Ask a Ninja 2. Videobloggers: telling their own life stories like Ryanne Hodson 3. Genre guys: snowboarding or car videos 4. Commentary: Rocketboom or the Bush Blair video. 5. Indie film shorts like Four Eyed Monsters 6. Random.. silly.. funny.. ridiculous… ephemeral Tag: momwalksin tag: lipsync 7. How-to’s that actually show you how to do something in detail or teach: French Pod Class 8. Remixs and mashups: The Presidency Then and Now or Matrix Reloaded or Brokeback to the Future. 9. Interviews like those at GETV. 10. Parodies like the 8up commercial. 11. AMV or anime music videos: Loveless 12. music videos – lipsync sitting at the computer, dancing around with music playing, that in effect, remakes the artists own music video into ones the users like, that stars themselves. Here is Hips Don’t Lie. […]

    Wow, just discovered this. Now I know why everyone at the vlog session at bloghere was saying that vloggers were a bunch of hippies and it seemed like a big love fest.

    It’s like the summer of love all over again. In the haight no less, well castro. I think that place is some kind of weird spiritual vortex indeed.

    Ya damn hippies!
