Does anyone here have a video camera or webcam or something?
Someone needs to make a CB news video every week with updates on the game, like the latest gossip or whatever. And make a video of it, post it on YouTube or one of the other sites. Kill 2 birds with one stone.. Get advertising for CB.. and 2 make us laugh. I mainly want someone to do it for number 2. Is anyone here got much of a deadpan news face that can do a serious CB news report without laughing and being dumb.. That would make it extra funny.. :)
I have one, but no dice, doc, I can't sell it to you.
I don't want to buy it. I want someone to make a CB news video. Something that would be funny. Come on we have freakin graphic designers and all kinds of crazy programmers here, we must have one or two video people who want to make something.
You know, I could hack together something, and I can manage a heck of Kent Brockman voice...a face for radio though I'm afraid. Maybe CB News needs a masked anchor "Paper bag man here again with a flash update". Ahh but then I'd be stepping on JW's alter ego.

Hey leave my paper bag alone! I reckon GL would be a good anchorman for CBNews....

Perhaps the two of you could report from opposite sides of the pond. Just remember to make sure your grammar is perfect though. Otherwise 'you know who' will have something to say about it....

"This just in from CBNews EuroDesk, we like to throw caution into the wind when write, sometimes even using punctuation."
"This just in, our brains have left the building!" :P

I can do short vids with my digital camera. I'll have to see if I can set it up in a way to make it work... What kind of commentary or visuals do we want here?

I have consistent access to a Canon XL1 and can do a pretty good deadpan. I also like to fancy myself a funny person, although I could just as easily be wrong. I'm funny to me, so I guess that's all that counts. But when it all boils down to it, I have the chance to shoot actual shorts I can enter into film festivals. I'm not going to do CB News when I've got that chance, even though I think it'd be fun. So there is at least one person amidst all the graphic artists with the werewithal to pull of such a program, but I just don't have the time.
The missus has a webcam... But having an equity card, I'd have to charge you all for my appearancies! ;)

nows it's Bast, Shade, and JW against the rest of us...
SliMem Dotson: So... did you post in here to brag about your awesome video camera that you aren't going to use for this? :) If so, why bother even posting, now we all get to cry and whine that the real pro here isn't interested..
I'll be the first to start:
Hey Slimem, why don't you make some funny news show for us then we can all root you on in famous director land!

Yeah Mem, make us some video!! Preferably dressed as a pirate....
"Tis the ceebee news here arrrr"
So far I total up almost a half hour broadcast already if everyone who mouthed off
had taped themselves doing it...
I think that makes me a producer.

I'll be the CB runner. Double whipped cream latte with cinnamon sprinklings Mr Novice Sir?
Who was mentioning that Skype is going to support video? If it's more than one on one, time to install Skype and bust out the Web Cams, Video Cameras, etc? ;)
I can't promise I'll be wearing much though. I'm a semi naturalist whilel at home... ;)
Did you spit in this?
Go get me another one and this time make it decrackanated!
(how am I doing so far?)
Crazy Crackers with guns!
Does your daddy know you bring Chris Rock his coffee? You went to Film School didn't ya? It would kill him!

Jay and Silent Bob....aren't they us? Only without the beer?
Oh god so many quotes I simply can't use!
I'll just have to sit here at work mumbling them quietly to myself in a non pg fashion.

Yes, I did.
Maybe you could look for something popping up in the forums around Halloween relating to CB and pirates though... We'll see what happens.
oh, this has way too much potential to make ppl laugh...
make a section about 'getting to know your fellow cb'er'
or 'actual cb2 battle footage' lol
or the latest on the people opinion and we can bring back the econ report!!!! ..although im sorry to the one who put more time than i sleeping into making the report i dont remember their name
the latest on the cb QB polls
ads for the great buys in auctions or cb'ers can acutally pay to get adv like "pixels loans" or an ad for a FS post(and if would look like a car sales man selling cb items on a lot...lol
random people will laugh or be weirded out, but us who know will laugh hardcore if this was done decend...
oh wait, could we get jon to make a public announcement like down time msgs or state of emergency or the rise and/or fall of the economy status
and wanted ads for all those how made multis
i could go on and on
oh wait we could have people each make their own video talking about strats and put them together, make a script to teh 3 or 4 videos can run together and look like a real conversation
