the world is a bit less brighter today

videosift is an internet community that is rare in today's day and age.unlike sites like reddit where people become comfortable in anonymity,or the deluge of clickbait sites which seek solely to distract,titillate or shock.videosift over the years has become a haven for people who genuinely seek to share their interests,voice their opinion or just hang out.

some extraordinary people have frequented this site and shared their profound insights,revealed new perspectives and new ways of thinking,engaged in some glorious arguments and even a few all out brawls,but always with a humanity that most other sites lack.many of us have fostered real and genuine friendships.

on october 3rd videosift lost one if it's pioneer members who helped foster this amazing and very human atmosphere and i am here to sadly report that our own rascal cat schmawy Everett is no longer with us.

schmawy shall be greatly missed,for his brilliant wit,his disarming charm and an ability to bring a sly sense of humor to the most volatile of situations.

for those who may never had gotten the opportunity to interact with schmawy,you missed out on one the most human people i had ever the privilege to engage,for those who did know schmawy...well..then you know his soft ease and comfortable charm which would make him instantly likeable.

so if you would like to leave a memory here of your encounter with the human formerly known as all means..leave a comment.or if you are a facebook friend with him,go to his page:

so while the world is less bright today,
here is to you schmawy evereet.../tips glass
shine on you crazy diamond.

What made you join VideoSift?

I've been PMing schmawy recently, and I briefly mentioned to him that what finally made me join VS was finding this video. By itself I could write a whole Sift Talk post extolling its virtues, but I won't. Suffice it to say for now that it's an awesome, trippy video with great music.

Because of the aforementioned I've been really curious about what made all of you decide to jump into the mix that is VideoSift. I had been lurking here for months, but the video I just mentioned is what finally pushed me to join. Can any of you define similar moments of epiphany in which you finally said to yourself, "This is where I belong"?

I'd really love to hear them all. I respect the opinions of so many people here, even many of the ones with which I find myself in disagreement. Most of you express yourself so well with your choice of videos that I barely need to ask how you feel about this, that, or the other. However I'll be the first to admit that I'm wrong on so many occasions, and that's yet another reason why I'd love to hear your stories.

This isn't a homework assignment for freshman English, mind you. Even a few sentences with imperfect grammar and multiple spelling errors will work for me. Share your story. It might not only be fun, but it may also help you identify kindred spirits in the community.

What have you got to lose?
