I don't consider v-blogging an art, but I try to do it as if it was.
Does this just makes art of it?

Saying videoblogging is not art is like saying the written word is not art.

I don't think such arguments are even relevant. Videoblogging is simply a medium... it's no more art or not art than a pencil. It is what you make it.

I am so confused... what was THAT!?! I've never heard of Better Bad News... perhaps I'll check it out someday... not today, too busy. :P

Casey, thanks for the comment.

Better Bad news is, if I understand correctly a remix with actors acting out interesting comments from slashdot on specific topics.

It's an abstraction, a deconstruction. A form of art.

That's if I understand it correctly. Which I don't think I 100% do.

Don't even know who's behing it.

But, I love it.
