Beach Walks presents the Winnies from Afar

Last year it was the Vloggies and we won three awards and life was good.

Then people got fired and confusion reigned and Irina Slutsky (her real name, she is a Russian hottie) decided to hold a completely non-traditional awards ceremony. Each person who signed up to attend the live event in LA was assigned another media creator, to review and present an award to. Totally “peer to peer.” Some of us who were not attending in person decided to create the Winnies from Afar – and here you have it! I hate to miss a good party.

Please enjoy, find some new internet tv shows to watch and know that people can celebrate for themselves without requiring some authority on high to dole out the designations. 🙂 This is frivolous fun, hopefully you will go explore some of these sites so this won’t seem like an insider’s partee.

  1. Thanks, Rox, Shane and Lexi! Just think of all the carbon offsets we didn’t have to buy to salve our environmental consciences had we flown to LA.

    Great videoblogs here. Great that they will reach more people as a result. This is what we all need to be doing now – promoting more.
    And you gotta be chuffed with that statuette, Rox
    What a thing of beauty.

  3. @madge – we are treasuring our award and going for a swim soon before our heads get too bloated!

    @jackson – i actually thought of that when i was editing this together! too bad id didn’t remember to add a message in the credits… 🙂

    @rupert – chuffed indeed! but only after a few tears of amazement. only wishing i had thought of the idea a little sooner so more of us could have played – ahem, like YOU.

  4. Okay Rox,
    there appears to be an entire sub-current of video-casters under the surface of this vast Internet ocean. . . how do you meet these people and find their websites? Is there a paper-published, or web-published, for that matter, “home” site for these sorts of antics and video-casting giggles and grins? I’d like to play, too. . .
    Is it as simple as a web search in my favorite search engine?

    Those winnies are superb. . . congratulations!

    Until that time. . . Earl J.

  5. It does not sound like German, it sounds like Dutch…

  6. congratulations Rox …….i think

  7. Hello Rox,
    I did a little research and found a veritable treasure-trove of vlogger references and not just a few books on the subject. . .
    Where have I been, eh?

    Very intriguing. . .

    Until that time. . . Earl J.

  8. LOL to all of you!

    @micha – yes, it sounds like Dutch UNLESS your are a sheltered American, as Shane is.

    @ EarlJ – you can start at to find some of us crazies and if you really want to dive in, join the Yahoo Videoblogging group – over 2500 members strong.

    @ Bob From Canada – yes, congrats are accepted. Madge Weinstein aka Richard Bluestein is one of the most thoughtful and yes eccentric humans on the planet today. It would take some time (and an ability to deal with profanity) to understand and appreciate their genius.

    Love to you all, Rox
