Movember Contest Winners Reveal – Vlog Style

Who vlogs on a blog? Boundary pushers. Free thinkers. Entrepreneurs. Imbeciles. Me.

Before you click play I have a few last words. I intended for the vlog to be more professional. I wanted it to have more jokes and music. I also wanted it to be highly pixelated and choppy at some points, because that is considered arty. I wanted it to be arty.

Just kidding. I lost “my” internet connection after the first recording session and had to resort to recording the last few bits on my Iphone. That may be pathetic, and I probably just gave you all a reason to label me as cheap, but I see this as a courageous move. I could have quit and left you all hanging. I could have thrown my computer off of the third story balcony. But I didn’t, so here is what resulted. It went okay.

That move was for you Billy Zane Aneroidocean. Did you really think I was going to put on my tutu?

So again, the winners were:

Madame Weebles

Chris De Voss 

Katie – SLP_Echo

Jon - Brother Jon

I will e-mail you all later today letting you know how you can get  in touch with Timmer to let him know how you would like to be illustrated. I wish you could all be in the banner. I assume that would take Tim quite some time, and then he wouldn’t be able to go drunk fountain splashing with me. So we can’t do that. Congrats to the winners and thank you to everyone who participated. As if I haven’t said it enough.

Also, I added the page I spoke about at the top of my blog titled “Movember 2012″. I will be working on the blurbs about the winners to complete that page. In the meantime, everyone can go read an end of Movember post by Emily of The Waiting over at ACOF.

  1. Love the cats! Paw in front of camera…. diva moment! Haha! =^.^=

  2. Well. Soooomebody was a TAD bit humble about her vlog. The special effects alone! I mean, you went all X-Men/Mystique with the hair. And then the ballet moves that clearly no human could do.

    And the cat. No WAY is that cat real.

    You are gorgeous and I hope you continue to vlog it up!

    I want your hair, even without the special effects. I hope that’s as creepy to hear as it is to say.

  3. Dang … I don’t win Powerball, I don’t win this … forever bummed.

  4. Hmm, I’m not sure if I commented on this bad boy yet. BUT The vlog was fresh to death. I like being able to put an actual voice to a blog. I think it makes humor blogs even funnier since I can read it in the blogger’s voice. Hmmm, now I’m not sure if I’ve directly spoke in any of my ‘vlogs’ I will have to check!

    Okay, of to draw some winners.

  5. Why are you so cute?! I want to be just like you one day.

    Congrats to the winners! Thanks for all the stuff you coordinated for Movember. You’re so awesome.

    • Actually Jen, I didn’t mention it but you kind of inspired me too with your vlog. I envy your eyebrows. They are amazing. Thanks for saying I’m cute. Now I can be in the se category as kittens and otters!

  6. Love your vlog! It was adorable! Your cat is adorable! You are adorable! You sound so different from what I thought you would. In a good way of course :)
    And WOW, your hair. Love the red!

  7. Loved it – I loved that your hair changed – please come dye mine – I have the chemicals but not the will….That Weebs wins everything :)

  8. Its so nice to put an actual voice to the words! I wish all bloggers would make a vlog. Except for me. I’d have to down a whole bottle of Pinot before I gathered up enough courage to do a vlog AND post it.

    Good job!

  9. Hooray for people that aren’t me that won stuff that I didn’t!! Super happy! weeeee….

  10. Becca, you’re adorable! I love your accent. That was perfect. I loved the ballerina move in the middle.

    • A few people say they didn’t hear any accent. I am glad you liked it! The turn in the middle was at aneroidocean’s request for winning the guessing game from the other day. That lead to me getting side tracked for about thirty minutes practicing my moves. I haven’t danced “professionally” in four years!

  11. Holy crap, you’re adorable! The little ballerina move was so cool. It is now my turn to swoon.

  12. Great Vlog, Becca!
    It looks artsy to me, and neatly cut together – I particularly liked the part where you mentioned your hair being different!
    Congratulations on your winners too! :D

  13. Nice voice. Not what I was expecting.
    FM

  14. Are you the cutest or what? Yes, I believe you are the cutest. And I freaking love your accent. And I’m so excited that I’m one of the winners!! Yay! Do I also win a kitty? Because I would love to win that kitty in your vlog. I have one who looks just like him so it would be nice to have a matched set. :D

    • Which one? I have so many of them running around that it is hard to keep track. I am glad you think I am cute. I think you are cute too. Do you want to be my friend. Check yes or no.

      I am getting off topic. I am super excited as well, and really glad another girl won other than Katie! Congrats :)!!!

  15. Seriously, this had me grinning from ear to ear! Never mind the technical glitches; it was simply a pleasure to add another dimension to the image I have of you in my mind.

    I thought you did a great job! Your smile is infectious, your eyes are as bright as the Aurora Borealis and your heart is as vibrant as your hair!

    And what can I say about that long john pirouette? Yours is a graceful form, Becca of the Blogosphere… Or should I say Becca of the Vlogosphere?

    All in all, a great job. And no, I haven’t been sniffing bell cart polish again..

  16. Personally, I think this was your most “arty” video to date…

  17. Yay! I won. The vlog was very artsy. Remember for video doesn’t matter what the mistake…it was done on purpose.

  18. Win #1: “ya’ll” (even if you weren’t quite as drawl-y as we thought you’d be ~.^ Don’t worry, I don’t have a drawl either! hahaha)
    Win #2: Cat lady!
    Win #3: That you had a hair appointment in the middle and your hair changed like the cool beast it is!
    Win #4: Great vlog – especially with the changing video medium ^.^

    Not win #5: me… sadness… but I’ll let you keep that blog of the year award ~.^

  19. Becca you are cuteness personified and I am totally jealous of your hair.

    Congrats winners!!

  20. i wish you could have seen how i was smiling through all that. maybe it’s because i’m so old and i grew up with rotary phones and mailing letters, and now it’s writing to someone on the other side of the world and then seeing them do a video thing like that. dunno, just me i guess, but it was cool. did NOT expect you voice to be so high-pitched like that, likely influenced by the previous post in which you were packing heat and just “packing.” if i didn’t see the video and someone said, “hey, listen to this 13- year old girl,” i’d have believed it. then again, when i call customer service, they usually say, “hold on ma’am and i’ll transfer you.” so voices aren’t reflective of anything. oh, and thanks for the crotch shot.

    • I had a feeling you would appreciate this the most. Isn’t it funny what we can infer from photos, but how seeing body language and hearing voices can shape how you perceive someone so much more? I think the communication opportunities we have today are still mind blowing to me too. It’s not just you.

      So, you thought I was going to sound like a man? Nice. Glad I don’t though. I’ll take 13 year old over manly voice any day. Oh, and you are welcome for my crotch.

  21. God, girl, if I were 25 years younger and you were totally drunk out of your mind and had absolutely no other choice in men, we would get together and … play scrabble or maybe spades. Anyway, freaky hair color thing going on and the business with the cats was, well, frightening. Other than that, well done. HF

    • Glad you enjoyed! I just realized everyone saw me in my underwear though. At least I can only go up from here!

      • Oh, don’t worry. I know you totally did that on purpose. But the whole innocent act looks good on you. So, keep it up!

        By the way, as your boss, I am a bit disappointed. I expected a bit less honesty and a bit more corruption (meaning, me winning 4 times). I thought we had an understanding. Didn’t you get the hint when I said I unlocked God Mode?

        • Daan, I have failed you again. Many people tried to get me to do evil things by way of cheating for this contest. Which is actually kind of sad considering its whole purpose was so non evil like.

          Please don’t fire me. Swoooooshh flip tink tink tink (that was a hair flip and an eye bat for you by the way).

          • How can I fire you after I’ve seen your underwear! I don’t know about the US, but in my country that means something, God damnit! It creates a indestructible bond!

            That sound effect just got you an extra coffee break! (Positive affirmation – still not sure if that’s the right word, though)

          • Sounds right to me! I am going to need more creamer!

  22. Ah, Yes. Alcohol always brought out the apparent hicker-billy in me. Curse words always did too though. I do have to say I sound way more southern than you do….but nobody will ever know.

    Thank you so much! I’m severely impressed with your drawing names out of a box skillz.

    • Thanks Jon. I am a lousy southerner I guess. I had to practice opening those little pieces of folded paper more intently than you would think in order to get the proper effect.

      Congrats! I am excited to see how you chose to be drawn up!

  23. Really fun, vlog, Becca! Your hair was great and should get an award for its performance! :-)

  24. Great job Becca! Great work, thank you!

  25. Aww! Becca, you are so cute! ;D Congrats to the winners and to you for your first foray into vlogging!

  26. I’m at work and forgot my headphones at home!!!!
    I’ll be back once I see the video.
    Congrats to the winners, I’m sad I lost.

    • I am sad there had to be any losers, but I had fun with this, so there may be future contests… and vlogs! So not all hope is lost my friend. (You deserve a lot more than a banner spot for what you accomplished for Movember anyway).

  27. Hey! Great first Vlog! I liked when your hair was all, “hey I’m red.” Then it was all like, “BAM! I’M RED YEAH!!!”

    Seriously though I feel bad I didn’t donate now.

    And please don’t give up Vlogging just because you had to switch mediums. Iphone to computer. Please, Steven Spielberg had to use a potato to shoot some of the scenes in Saving Private Ryan.

    • Hahahaha everything in this comment made me laugh. Thanks for the support and encouragement for my Vlogging attempts. That counts for a lot even if you didn’t donate to Movember. As much as I have complained about the hardships of it all, it was really fun. I plan to do others in the future… without the potato.

  28. Sad that I didn’t win but definitely enjoyed the video. You didn’t sound as Southern as I thought you would. hahaha…
