Our Vimeo Homepage


This will lead you to our newly-done profile page on Vimeo - the site where we have started hosting our videos, as well as YouTube.

I've just spent the last hour or so on the site editting our page and watching some videos. It wasn't until earlier that I realised that the company also does Collegehumor videos (a personal favourite YouTube channel of mine) and this inspired me to put a little more effort into our Vimeo account, and so here I am!

So if you like what you see, make an account (it only takes a second!) and subscribe to us. Don't tell anybody this, but I think Vimeo is much better than YouTube. But YouTube gets more exposure, so it's a difficult choice to make. Maybe when we feel that we're on our feet we'll ditch YouTube. They've become kinda rubbish since they were bought out by Google anyway...

Much love to all and thanks for the support with the new video!

If some day you happen to be near a library, and you're bored (bored to commit a sacrilege to what is ‘ethically cool’), just shoot a dart at the skater nerdphobics and go on in!

Have you read “The Figure in the Carpet” by Henry James? This narrative is suitable for any reader, but it’s only truly intelligible to a small number…

Of course this is not strictly related to YouTube vs. Vimeo (James had no idea about these things), but it raises an interesting question:

What do you prefer? Having to resell continually your individuality to adapt to the voracious popular appetites? For example, if you leave a video talking about sex you'll have a higher chance of being viewed by many people. But, is this what you really want? Sell any recycled material about yourself in order to be watched by a vast audience?

Tom, if you must adjust the nature of your sensibility (and your sense of humanity) to attract a wider audience: which makes sense? Or do you prefer an area where people can admire your work as you want and recognise the particular meaning of this “figure” which you are trying to express through what you do?

Vimeo and YouTube are far from what I'm trying to get across; they are just a clumsy example. What I want to say, in fact, is connected to the kind of person that you are. When you can, please read it. Perhaps, you will identify with it.

Much love to you all!
