Matches – “Charlie’s Grill”

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012



In my continuing series of videos on matches I have kept over the years, and then pick out of this bag some years later, and then remember, recreate, imagine, what I can from the matchbook.


This one I imagine is rather romantic, and now I am adding storytelling touches that were not there in previous matches stories.

TagWhat & Vincent Eaton’s videos

Thursday, February 9th, 2012



Towards the end of 2011, a fairly new online company called TagWhat that describe themselves as “The mobile encyclopedia of where you are” contacted me. An attentive Multimedia Content Producer there liked my videos I call “Matches” and they wanted to collaborate. The company develops and runs a located-based App for mobile devices, the idea being that when you are somewhere in the world and want to know a little about a very specific place, you can call up a story of that location using their app to look and listen to. They’ve been covered by the Wall Street Journal, AP, Mashable, and is a People’s Choice Award Winner.


After some back and forth, my “Matches” series of memory videos became part of TagWhat’s mobile encyclopedia.


This seems to be an example of what is called, “Slowly getting one’s words and stories out there one small discovery by small exposure at a time….”


And if you want to have an actual look-listen at my Matches series of videos to see what they see, you can have get to them by clicking here.


So, hey, stuff happens,
