Video Blog: Reader Questions Answered #1

As you know by now, I regularly record video blogs with Steve from Collider. This past weekend, we found ourselves at the New Orleans airport hours before our flight home, and decided it would be a perfect time to record a bonus video blog.

But we didn't have a topic in mind, so we reached out to our twitter followers and asked for some ideas. After just a few submissions, Steve and I realized we would love to talk about a variety of these submitted topics, and changed the idea to a reader q & a. We told everyone that we'd answer every question submitted, however we were only able to cram 25 or 30 questions in before we had to board the plane. We even answered questions about Prop 8 and eating competitions. That's enough, right?

Sadly, that video blog will never ever be seen by the public. We recorded the video blog with my new iPhone 4, and somehow it failed to record the audio (Apple was happy to replace the phone the following day, but that doesn't bring back the 30 minute video we recorded). As you might expect, it was very frustrating. But we moved on. And during our layover in Denver we decided to rerecord the Q&A, using some of the same questions, mixed with a few new ones. So after the jump you can watch the whole thing. And please leave your questions for potential future video blog Q&A's in the comments below. Enjoy.
