Video: Come to Bullets & Bourbon in December

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

As I mentioned at the start of the month, I was out at Rough Creek Lodge near the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex videotaping the vast resort with an aerial drone to help promote our upcoming Bullets & Bourbon event in December. With a major assist from my friend Steve Green on narration, I’ve incorporated the best […]

Go Fly a Drone!

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

In December I’m going to be joining Glenn Reynolds, Dana Loesch, Ed Morrissey, Kevin Williamson, Roger Simon, Steve Green, and Mark Rippetoe for a spectacular Second Amendment program called Bullets & Bourbon.  The event will be held at Rough Creek Lodge, which is a fantastic venue in Glen Rose, Texas (about an hour and a […]

RIP Noel Sheppard, 53

Saturday, March 29th, 2014 - by Ed Driscoll

Noel Sheppard was with Newsbusters at its start in 2005, becoming its associate editor. “It must be said that no blogger here was more prolific and more popular. We’ll have more to say in the coming days,” Brent Bozell writes: Our Noel Sheppard passed away yesterday (Friday) morning at about 5:00 AM. Say a prayer […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: An Interview with Glenn Reynolds on The Higher Education Bubble

Monday, July 2nd, 2012 - by Ed Driscoll

Since my blog was one of many inspired by Instapundit.com in the immediate wake of 9/11, and since it’s celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, I had wanted to do a video interview with Glenn Reynolds to discuss the history and state of the Blogosphere. Given that he has a new “Broadside” (much longer than […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: Where Krugman Has Gone Before

Monday, June 18th, 2012 - by Ed Driscoll

Rather than shoot the new video in the newsroom set we typically use as home base, I decided to borrow a used Apollo capsule and Saturn rocket to make my way to Space Station V. What better place to discuss the alien invasion that’s about to strike planet earth? Or at least the one that […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: Weimar? Because We Reich You

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012 - by Ed Driscoll

Our latest Silicon Graffiti video was inspired by one of the key themes in the late Allan Bloom’s 1987 book, The Closing of the American Mind. Bloom wrote that by the middle of the 20th century, American universities  had essentially become enclaves of German philosophy. As a result, “the new American life-style has become a […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: March Madness

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 - by Ed Driscoll

Hey, is this mic working? Is the camera on? At last — we’re back with our first Silicon Graffiti after a long hiatus, with a whirlwind look at some of the lowlights President Obama and the left suffered in March: Seven Days in March: The brutal week for Obama, the worst of his presidency. ObamaCare […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: ‘Forward, into the Past’

Thursday, March 17th, 2011 - by Ed Driscoll

In last week’s video, we explored how the progressive movement of the 19th century set the stage for what Tom Wolfe dubbed “Starting from Zero,” in which millennia of knowledge could safely discarded and the CTRL-ALT-DLT keys be pressed to reboot mankind. What could go wrong? Well, other than the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, WWII, […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: ‘Starting from Zero’

Thursday, March 10th, 2011 - by Ed Driscoll

Say what you will, but personally, I’d like to think the post we’re doing to commemorate the ninth anniversary of our humble little blog is –hopefully! — slightly more interesting than our very first post here. To officially kick off another year of blogging, here’s our latest Silicon Graffiti video, the first of a two […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: ‘Steer the Coverage’

Thursday, January 27th, 2011 - by Ed Driscoll

We kick off another year of our Silicon Graffiti videoblog with a look at Old Media’s response to the horrific shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ). For anyone who was on Twitter at the time the news first broke, it was quite a sight watching old media’s narrative emerge in real time even before any […]

Merry Christmas!—Anybody Got a Snow Shovel?

Friday, December 24th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

Happy holidays to you and yours from the staff and management of Ed Driscoll.com! Yes, I’m back in the one-man Logan’s Run biodome once again, the same place I ducked into last year to ward off all the global warming swirling about me. But I’m a little worried that, like Minneapolis’ Metrodome, the roof of […]

Rebecca Aguilar Loses Lawsuit Over Firing

Friday, December 17th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

“Dallas Newcaster Rebecca Aguilar, who bullied a gun-owner on camera, has lost the lawsuit over her resulting firing,” Glenn Reynolds writes, linking to a report which notes: “Deliberations lasted only about one hour, a swift verdict considering the six-day length of the trial in a downtown Dallas courtroom.” Glenn adds, “Pretty much as I predicted. […]

The National Review Post-Election Cruise Video Interviews

Monday, November 29th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

Roger Kimball, James Lileks, Rob Long and Michael Walsh each were kind enough to stop by for a short, YouTube-friendly video interview the week before last during the National Review Post-Election Cruise through the Caribbean, onboard the Holland America Line’s swank Nieuw Amsterdam cruise ship. Here are the results, presented in alphabetical order: Roger Kimball, […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: BlogWorld 2010

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

For the latest edition of our Silicon Graffiti video blog, we check out the sights, and sounds, and blogs at the Fourth Annual Blog World and New Media Expo, last weekend at the swanky Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Featured in this video: My interview with social media consultant Brian Reich, who’s working with the […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: The Quotable Harry Reid

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

As James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal likes to note, the Democratic Party has, over the years, had many powerful orators. Andrew Jackson is often attributed as saying, “One man with courage makes a majority.” Franklin D. Roosevelt comforted the nation when he said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” […]

I Rode a Tank, Held the General’s Rank

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

…And in my last video, still ended up looking infinitely more like Michael Dukakis than Michael Philip Jagger. It’s a humbling reminder that unless you actually are Norman Schwarzkopf, or have the machismo of George C. Scott playing Patton, it’s very easy to Dukakisize yourself in this situation: In any case, this effect was surprisingly […]

New Silicon Graffiti Video: ‘The Cold Civil War’

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

As Victor Davis Hanson wrote at National Review regarding the now disgraced General Stanley McChrystal, “If an officer cannot figure out Rolling Stone, how can he understand the Taliban?” But then, these days, a commander always has to secure both the real and the media battlefield if he hopes to win. Or as Gerard Van […]

Desktop Videomakers Should Walk Through Digimation’s Model Bank

Sunday, June 20th, 2010 - by Ed Driscoll

While 3d computer graphics have been around since at least the 1970s, the rise of the World Wide Web in the 1990s, and especially the rise of Internet video in recent years created a whole new “prosumer” interest in them. But for me, 3d models, virtual sets, and other digital effects are more interesting when […]
