The Geezer on YouTube

About 5 years ago, I had a regular local motorcycle show on cable called "Motorcycling Minnesota." The show ran a few more than two dozen episodes between 1999 and 2006. It turned into a regular headache with every show turning into a ClusterFox of assistants/interns/employees deciding they didn't like video editing as much as they'd imagined and with deadlines and sponsors acting as moving targets. I got what I wanted out of the experience, broke even on my equipment, and got a little further into the business I thought I'd left behind. I don't have a history of all of the shows (no great loss), but I have a few of the shorts and complete shows in archive format, so I thought they might as well be taking up space on someone else's computers.
With this website and my regular column turning in a little cash flow, I decided to take another show at being a movie star (in my own mind). So, I fired up a Geezer with A Grudge YouTube channel, posted a few of the old shows, and started working on turning my Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly column into a regular video issue on YouTube and on the cable station that used to run the Motorcycling Minnesota shows.

One of the original shows is linked above. This is my video take on the cool stuff from the 2004 Cycle World International Motorcycle Show. The kid who keeps popping up in the show is my grandson, Wolfe.

Again, if you are getting this column by email and wish to continue reading the silly crap that pops into my head, please consider subscribing to the Geezer with A Grudge blogsite. The email service is temporary and the list changes regularly.
