As always, reading on the Web can leads one through a tangled Web of information and entertainment. I forget where I started earlier — ah yes with the new iPhone app called instagr.am I joined and posted my first picture of my cigarbox uke in the pumpkin patch. Instagr.am has filters you can try before posting your photo to … well Flickr, Facebook, Twitter. So I had to try the different filters — the black-and-white filter for my “devouring the news” photo, the regular effect for my “perspective photo”, and the intense color effect on the uke in the pumpkins. I guess instagram is the digital polaroid of the times.
Oddly enough, with Instagram, there isn’t a way to post directly to WordPress blogs. I imagine I have to wait for instagr.am to post to Posterous which in turn will post to WordPress (here at Ukulele Perspective). It gets tricky balancing all these accounts.
From there I had to update a Twitter account — where I saw the announcements of contests. One contest is for a new hire for Howcast. Can’t say I’d ever noticed “Howcast” before. So in watching a Howcast of “how to Beatbox” which was well, entertaining and informative, this in turn led to a search of beatboxing with ukuleles and finally ukulele looping. Not bad.
Now where did this all start?
