I enjoy social media. Most of the time I’m not actually being all that social, but I like to see what everyone else is doing. My favorite is Instagram and Twitter, which I’ll talk about another time, but the other day, on Twitter, I watched a Periscope broadcast. It wasn’t live, but I was intrigued by it. It was two actresses waiting to be call out on set and were just goofing around, doing a Q&A for their fans. Anyhow, I decided to go check Periscope out. I downloaded it to my phone and went looking through the live feeds. I discovered that people will live stream about ANYTHING!! Seriously though, I saw people cutting up fruit, sitting by a lake just talking, little league baseball games, people doing drugs, concerts, people walking their dogs, lots of guitar playing, piano, and singing, and some people just sitting around with nothing better to do than talk to their phone. Someone was even asking if his viewers wanted to watch him pee, because he had to go. I left that stream, no thanks, guy.
I was just amazed by it. Fascinated and entertained even by some of the most stupid stuff. Not sure what exactly that says about me, but I guess I just find it interesting to see what others are doing. Of course, most of the lame stuff I don’t stay to watch. One thing I found that was pretty cool was watching people do pottery. They make some really cool things and it’s neat to see how the stuff is made. I will say, it brought back some Ghost memories (the movie, of course).
Last night I watched a few concerts. Gwen Stefani, Guns n Roses, and some others that I wasn’t quite sure what they were. I was entertained. So now, I find myself wanting to stream something. I was thinking that maybe I could stream me doing plastic canvas. Maybe like a teaching sort of thing. I don’t know. I haven’t fully decided and I don’t even know how to do it yet. Might start with something stupid like watching my dogs. lol
