This morning I went on a run because, you know. (“How is that going?!” you ask. “Meh…” I say.) It’s cold in the mornings, so I put Vaseline on my cheeks because I read somewhere that it prevents wind chapping. I probably didn’t need it because it’s not THAT cold anymore, but I’m a weenie. Deal with it.
At some point during mile 2 today, I ran straight into a swirling cloud of gnats… while I had petroleum jelly on my face. WHILE I HAD PETROLEUM JELLY ON MY FACE. I might as well have been wearing fly paper.
And if that weren’t disgusting enough, Bobby just sent me this: TIL that gnat clouds are essentially gnat orgies. Ew.
BRB, I need to go sterilize my face.
Building the place to discover the best in original web series
SIX MONTHS! I still remember, it was in October, the week after I was hired at blip, but before I actually started. I was in the LA office with Steve and Eric and they let me listen in on the Monday staff meeting. At the beginning of the call, Mike announced: “Starting today, we declare war on the destination site. This is all we’re going to live and breathe for the next several months.”

He was right. Thousands of collective hours of blood, sweat, and tears later… and there you have it. Mega ups to everyone at blip.tv for putting together something we’re all so incredibly proud to share with the world today.
It’s an exciting time to be a web producer, and an exciting time to be at blip.tv. Cheers!
