Motor Cycles

[cross post from no practice]

In this video, I am thinking about my role as a vlogger and as a community member. Is the act of watching/taping the act of participating? What am I participating in? I am thinking about mediation of experience or mediation as experience, control and motorcycles.

I hate situations like this - where I want to post a comment, because the work affected me, but I have no idea what to say, because it affected me too deeply to put immediately into words.

I wasn't sure of your message here. It was very unfortunate for the motorcycle rider, I cant imagine how people must feel when they see vehicle accidents like that, but, I cant help but feel that you have pin pionted out motorcycles though, maybe because of the end of the video where you said you were pretending to be a motorcyclist, "wierd", but do you feel wierd driving a car, after someone gets into a car accident?
Sorry in advance, if I just read in to it the wrong way.

hi serra. thanks for commenting...even though you don't know what to say!

hi shana,

i'm not pinpointing motorcycles at all. this video is not about motorcycles as much as it's about mediated experience. what was strange to me was not the motorcycle accident. it was the recording of it and the posting of it and the pretending of it. if i had taped a car accident and then pretended to be driving a car, it would be strange too, i would think.

i know that you ride a motorcycle. sorry if you were offended.

No No, I wasnt offended at all, I get what you were saying now, and I could just imagine that it must have been strange.
