V-Log: Thinking Outloud About My #Novel-In-Progress #AmWriting #Writing

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I talk about my novel a lot in these. I am actually getting a lot of work done on the outline. It’s going to take me a few more days if I keep it up, but I don’t know. It may take even longer if I freeze up like I am known to do. But I am hopeful, if nothing else.

Talk To Me Internet — Still Processing My Trip To #NYC

I am still processing what happened over the weekend. It was a lot of fun and it reminded me yet again that I should be living there and no where I am now. But it’s really expensive and I just don’t see it happening anytime soon.

V-Log –The Vision Thing: How To Save Playboy

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I am not saying I’m any sort of suuperfan of Playboy, but, much like Gawker, I have an emotional attachment to the brand. So, in the below video, I in a somewhat rambling manner, lay out my vision for how to save Playboy. What I would do is change the very nature of what Playboy is.

I would change the type of woman Playboy readers aspire to date. Instead of arm and eye candy, I would tell readers that their ideal woman was someone like Ilana Glazer of Broad City. That would really change things up. That would shake Playboy to its core and generate a huge amount of buzz for the publication.

Right now, Playboy has squat in buzz and doing something drastic would probably be the only way to save it. I suggest that Playboy cut its connection to LA and become a New York City brand. That is one way to generate a lot of buzz and it would really shake things up if it did so.

The below video is really long and rambling, but worth it.

V-log: We Need A New Gawker — Maybe Playboy Could Fill The Void?

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I don’t know why I keep writing about it, it’s such a waste of time. But it is a fun little diversion while I’m getting myself psyched to work on my novel again. But, anyway, these two videos talk about how we need a new Gawker.com. One way to do it would be to cater to the EDM and Fashion communities while still talking about media stuff. Or, you could spice up the content of publication like Playboy.

This one is a little bit rambling at times because I got distracted by a phone call. But, regardless, I needed to get some things off my chest.

V-Log: A Monologue About #writing The ROKon Magazine Story & Broad City

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

This is way too long and rambling and probably no one will watch it, but I am psyching myself up to work on a novel about ROKon Magazine today and so you get this. This is about why ROKon Magazine’s story is so great as well as why I think the people of Broad City would be interested in telling it. I know I have the responsibility to tell the story myself, but the whole Broad City thing is kind of an idle daydream.

I am very upset with the video that was done on Facebook Live recently and this is my hot take on that subject, along with some discussion of the novel I am working on. This was is pretty good. Could be better, but it’s pretty good.
