Blooper Reel Real Moments

The Blooper Reel Real Moments From Cooking With Barkin’ Dogs (Series) A Video By Jeanine Starring One Hapless Chef Co-Starring: My Kitchen, recipes, ingredients, brooms, dishes, blender, dogs, husband, oven mitts, knives, Siri and other assorted props. Category: Comedy Featuring Camera Assistance From Brendan Leftwich Cameos from Brendan and Curt Leftwich Ironically, the dogs are not barking in this outtakes video. So far I now have three videos in a series about cooking with barking dogs. You can check them out on our channel and read the description about them for more information about what led to this silliness. During filming a lot of unexpected things happened, and most of them are not in the original videos. Because they are either bloopers or make me look ridiculous and inept. These magic moments will be included in this first of two outtakes and blooper videos I have just made just for you. Creator Notes From Jeanine In the process of editing and choosing ratios and canvases, I am adjusting the 1:1 ratio with new canvases from my photo library. I hope you like the backgrounds and the first one will open with a banana background. Life is certainly bananas. Especially for me when I'm trying to film anything. The descriptions for/on my YouTube playlists “How Not To Do Stuff With Mama" and "Jeanine Doing Funny Stuff”, “Oh No Mama”, “Comedy’, “Food and Drink” and “Fun Stuff’ can give you some more information about what you are about to see. So you know that weird and wonderful funny stuff happens to me. I would like to thank EPIDEMIC SOUND and the two musicians whose songs you will hear in this video. "Keeping My Head In The Sand" by Speedy The Spider is perfect for this video. It is light, funny and appropriately creepy. I am sure that these musicians are a lot of fun to work with. Song 2 “Particular Clown" by Jon Björk was also appropriately creepy. It was a magical experience as I edited and added the music, almost as if these musicians were playing to my visuals. Please check out these artists if you enjoy the music as much as I did. Thank You to the Universe Divine! Thank You to my son Brendan for agreeing to hold the camera and film me for the first time! He inherited my funny gene and is inherently funny himself. I hope that he will do it again because the person on camera (in this case me) has much more freedom to move around and do stuff than with a standing light ring, and a remote control for the iPhone inside of it. Your check is in the mail Ben. PS! I need an assistant and will ask for one several times in this video. Are you available? (Location Los Angeles CA or we can go to the cabin in Big Bear Lake depending on What’s Happenin’) And do you think you can work with me? Video made with love by Jeanine

Life Is Good

Life Is Good It begins with an idea. Then you make a plan. Then you follow through. And if a woodpecker wakes you up by knocking at the window, you have a good idea for a plan to follow through. Voila! Life is good. After a cup of coffee. I have been working with screensaver backgrounds to use behind new videos. This one is a VJ loop: Colorful Tunnel and we are all in it. Some quotes from the video: “Everything will be Alright” Life is good. “Together we've got this” “We've got this together” “Dive into life” Life is good. “ Love is the Light You Carry In Your Heart” All visuals in this tunnel are positive and designed to encourage and uplift you and your spirit. Thank You Musician: Hatamit Sunami for the Music: “Leaves In The Wind” Reminder: 100% of all income from YouTube channels goes to Diabetes Research Institute Foundation.

In Loving Memory

In Loving Memory 🥰 This video is a tribute to the beautiful women in our lives we have loved ❤️ and lost. Our mothers, our grandmothers and our aunties. In my case, and sadly for some other women who have tragically lost a daughter, I begin with my beloved Meghan Camille. We continue this journey through a changing background of resplendent colors of forest and sky with images of Meg’s grandmothers floating by. Meghan is named after my grandmother Camille. I loved both of them with all my heart and they to this day remain the most important ladies who have graced my life. I will have to make a separate video for our friends, cousins and sisters. And that’s just the women! We’ve all lost a lot of men too. So even though this video has photos of my ladies, I share them with you as you remember your own mothers, grandmothers and aunties who have passed and now live somewhere over the rainbow. The movie “ Wizard of Oz “ was my favorite daughters favorite movie since childhood and she used to sing with along with Dorothy “Over the Rainbow“ It was like hearing 👼 Angel voices. And so my daughter, I hope you are enjoying the view. 🌈 This one is for you.

And The Oscar Goes To

"And The Oscar Goes To" The music producer of my children’s CD “Dinosaurs Musical Day” Charles Lawrence, recently finished transferring some of our old VHS tapes to more updated formats. They are now on DVDs and he made a special flash drive for me and added them to an external hard drive as well. From here I was able to edit my old professional acting demo reel, although the quality has deteriorated over the years. My Apologies! My last acting job was on Beverly Hills 90210 back in 1990 something? So the ways that you would submit your audition reels has changed. It used to be that you would just add your clips from the TV and film parts that you did to a reel and submit so that casting directors or producers could view and see your work. I hear nowadays it is done differently. But as an experiment I put together the clips that I had with some music to make a story. You will see my part in a scene with Jason Priestley from Beverly Hills 90210 first after the opening segment. I had a recurring role Knots Landing as Abby's hapless secretary. I did six episodes in this role. They are small parts, but they were fun and paid the bills! Because the very generous actress Donna Mills gave my character a name (Melanie) I wrote a story about how Melanie first meets Abby, the new owner of Pacific World Cable, how she works as Abby's assistant and secretary as well as delivers mail and eventually gives her boss a headache by “rattling on” We wonder did she get fired? Oh well, someone could probably use and hire a nurse. Which leads us to the next roles. I played nurses in episodes of Dallas and the White Shadow as well as on Saint Elsewhere. You might say that “Nurse Number One” was my specialty. I've also included a couple of short clips from the TV show Berringer's and my role on the feature film “Serial" directed by Bill Persky as a weird cult member. I must thank my beautiful friend and esteemed director Robert S Becker for giving me so many opportunities to audition and eventually be cast. Rest in peace my dear friend. I can imagine you directing a chorus of angels in heaven. I would also like to thank the musician Mary Kiddle for the cool song “Join the Circus" courtesy of the Epidemic Sound library. Again, please note that the quality of these acting clips is not the best but it's what I have to work with for now. PS I would love to work as an actor again! “Once An Actor, Always An Actor” Even if you are a videographer these days.

Crochet Is Cool The Turquoise Hat

Crochet Is Cool The Turquoise Hat

Crochet Is Cool My Aunt Helen taught me to knit and crochet when I was 12 years old during my first summer with her in Waupaca, Wisconsin. The first thing I ever crocheted was a lavender toilet paper roll doll cover. Have you ever seen one of those? It is a Toilet Paper Decorative Cover that shapes like a dress when finished and go over a 6 inch plastic doll (you can find and purchase in an arts and crafts store) that will go inside your new full TP roll. It was the only one I ever made and yes I still have it. I have been doing crochet ever since that summer and I have made countless scarves and blankets for our family and for my friends and family as gifts. Most people do enjoy a handmade gift made especially for them. I'm happy that I did take some photos of some of these blankets before I gave them to their new owners, because some of them were really elaborate and quite beautiful but are somewhere else! Those that I made for our family live on the beds and couches. One year I made scarves for every member of our family who attend and celebrate our yearly Christmas dinners here at our house with us. That year there were 10 people and 10 scarves. How Jeanine Does It: I chose colors for each person and said prayers all throughout the process of making their scarf. As I would be stitching a row I would think about their happiness add those thoughts to the scarf. Working on another row I might visualize the person in good health or enjoying success and weave those visions into that row. There are prayers and love in every scarf I make and not only is it good for the scarf and the person who is going to be wearing the scarf, it is a great relaxing way to pray. I am sharing this information with you in the video description because I would like to let you know that even with degenerative arthritis I still love to crochet. Just no more 5 feet wide family blankets. The Goal: I would like to introduce this activity to people who don't crochet but might be interested in learning how to. If you do crochet or knit, you will appreciate the canvases/backgrounds I have created for this video because they are all crochet and knit pieces. How It Began: We were invited to a family dinner for Easter at my brother-in-law's house. (Thanks Robbie!) Through our mutual connection by way of crochet I bonded with family friend Jim, who made a turquoise crochet cap for me. Well, it may have not started out as a gift for me but quickly became one. That hat gave me the idea for this video. I wore the hat home from our evening and then wondered what our big stuffed Teddy Bear would look like wearing the hat. I will let you take it from here and watch the video. I made it with kids in mind so it may feel like a movie for kids, but I think we older folks can still be young at heart. Thank you to Epidemic Sound Library and to the talented musician Isabel Watson for the song: “Honor Your Mother" For Donation Information: Our company Mother’s Heartlight Music is now donating 100% of any profits from my new videos to either the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or The Humane Society of the United States.
