Oh I have almost no geographical skill. I don’t remember where streets are and I don’t remember where things are on the planet. I do better now than I used to because I’d go through and practice sometimes.
What I did is I made an Excel spreadsheet with countries and capitals and I tried my best to look at the camera while reading and also after pressing “Play” to whatever background song I wanted for that particular Country’s shoutout.
Early I just did shoutouts over whatever song I picked. But later I picked specific songs for specific places, usually ironic, particularly with the US States. Music that doesn’t “go with” a state.
I loved Vine. Each 6.4s thing was its own production. Looks like nothing now but at the time it was a source of pride. Some people put a lot into each 6s and made millions of $. I just did “whatever”. One day I decided to be President of Earth and give everybody a shoutout. It was a good use of a highly caffeinated night.
My final message on that particular account, which I called JustNoticeUs I recorded on a Spongebob Android phone on July 29, 2016 as an experiment. It barely worked. But it was a nice final message and I meant it – and somehow it got 45 on Coub who had archived it which is a nice surprise.
