Beach Walk 260 OTR – Filters – Good News, Bad News

Our brains depend on being able to filter out enormous amounts of irrelevant stimuli; they also lump people into broad categories that are often inaccurate.

I like to read a person’s energy instead of being distracted by the surface to find out who s/he is.

I went to a nice “Open to the Public” park near my hotel today to film in the warm sunshine, only to be swept away by security guards. “It’s a public park but private property. You can’t film.”

So I thought quickly, and realized I hadn’t yet been to Central Park this trip, so I scurried over there and grabbed what I could of the lingering light, only to have weak batteries. Sorry about the poor sound – it’s rare on Beach Walks!

When I’m traveling, I am on my own – there is no Secret Cameraman, so I shoot, edit, encode, and upload these episodes myself. I don’t always carry all the extra spare parts. 🙂

We’re on Akimbo! That is a service that lets you download selected programs from the internet and watch it on your TV. Beach Walks is one of only 8 video podcasts to be accepted!

Be in Touch!


  1. Loved the focus work you did on this show, Rox. And even though I know you as well as I do, I remain so impressed that you are able to not only work from dawn until the wee hours of the morning while you’re on the road, but you still manage to put in the several hours that it takes to shoot, edit, encode, upload and post a show every single day.


    Wonderful message in this show as well. I’m still pretty quick to make snap judgments based on how people look or act. You continue to serve as a personal inspiration.

  2. Hey Rox,

    Great show, excellent subject, nice glasses…very NYC 🙂

    Not sure if your into yoga, but if you’re looking for a challenge…


  3. Peter, check out show #150 to see if Rox is into yoga. 😉

  4. Ah ha! Thats one show I hadnt gotten to yet (Im still a Beach Walks newbie). What a perfectly done show! Mahalo for taking the time to send me to that one.


  5. You’re most welcome, Peter. We love doing shows like that. So much fun finding the perfect music, getting all the shots, and exploring creativity in the editing process.

    Down side is they take so much longer than a “regular” Beach Walk show. In our perfect world we’d be able to do this full time and spend as much time as we’d like on each show. We’re working on it. 🙂

    PS: I left the above message with the link but since I was logged in as the Admin it shows that Rox posted it. She doesn’t talk about herself in the third person.
