For over a year now I have been filming regular (or semiregular, when things really got busy) videoblogs for Hot Air, at the kind invitation of Michelle Malkin. You can find most or all of them here; I think there are 52 of them in all.
Hot Air also runs my weekly Blogging the Qur’an series. I am immensely grateful to Michelle for her support of my work at a time when most media figures, both liberal and conservative, shy away from examining and confronting the ideology of our enemies, and prefer to purvey comforting fantasies and half-truths.
The Qur’an Blog will continue, but the video series is probably over with the departure of Bryan Preston from Hot Air — so I thought this would be a good time to let you know that without Bryan it wouldn’t have been possible in the first place, and it was he, and certainly not I, who was responsible for any quality that the videos may have had. It was Bryan who set up the studio and worked over the video and jumble of pictures I sent him into a coherent whole. (And sometimes he would find much better images on his own.) I am very grateful for his kindness and help in so many ways, and wish him great success in his new gig with Laura Ingraham.
I say the series is probably over because Michelle has asked for anyone with video editing skills (they’re looking especially for someone with chroma key experience) who may be interested in helping me keep turning out the vids to contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if any of you care and would like to see the videos continue, please let us know. If someone does emerge, I will be happy to retrieve my nifty red diamonds tie (the one here) from its sealed, air-cooled vault (with walls six feet thick, of course) and tilt at some more windmills. Otherwise, it’s keyboard-only tilting from here on out, and once again, mille grazie, Bryan, shukran jazeelan!
