Hey guys!

It seems I enjoy the whole documenting process quite entertaining as well, so have made a bunch of videos of things that I've done recently, still got a couple left to put together, one of a textile factory, one of an afternoon at the beach and one of a spot of land I intend on using as a pilot AP project.

I'm adding these here as my system thread already digresses often, and I thought it would be easier for you guys to view and comment on them here. None of these videos are, or will be, AP related. I'll make another thread for useful things I learnt how to make on the internet. Please do let me know what you think, and hit the thumbs up in YouTube if you liked the video.

And without further ado, I present the following for viewing by several people.

Hey guys, here is a couple more videos that are worth a glance, or are they? I think the old railway station certainly is, correct me if I'm mistaken :brilsmurf:

Cool... Interesting to see the nursery, beautiful rocks.... And quite strange to see all the clay pots, here everything is plastic, love those big water pots.

Sorry Brando, the video wasn't finished at that time, but I've made it public have a look see now :D And thanks for the compliment.

EB the rocks are beautiful, you're seeing them dry and dusty in the video they take on a whole new personality when they're wet or underwater, makes a real pretty GB I'll tell you that, will show you one in just a few days when my buddies system gets up and running.

Clay is cheap here, and almost all the container gardening is in them, you can get any size you like and even order custom stuff. There are some new plastic potters that have been around for a year or so I think, same orange ones I used to have in my AP initially, but they're relatively quite expensive and not really so popular.

That one didn't fall, but these did :twisted:

The first one is a pretty decent bit of what can be called sketch comedy, click the video to go to the YouTube page and read the full description of the where and the what.

The second is a cover of a Beatles song these kids are practicing, their performance is on Sunday, you guys want to see the performance, which will have other bands too.

They're both in the same space but on different days.

In Discus Transport video, I can see the soda bottle filter in action. Cool.

Great looking fish.

Interesting... don't think I have ever seen a donkey pulling a cart down the middle of the road.

Checked out karachidigest.com to see the news over there.

Much different style of life in America.

You live an interesting life, Abdul. Really enjoy fish, plants, and growing things, eh?

Thanks much for sharing.

Thanks Bill, its never boring, and from what little I've seen of the first world it is an immensely different lifestyle, apples and oranges. For example I see donkeys pulling carts pretty much everyday. There are parts of the city where you can see camels pulling carts in thin snaking lanes all day long.

I do enjoy it, I think the engineer in me really adores the whole almost a perpetual motion machine concept, and I enjoy doing things well so the organic gardening just comes from a desire for efficiency.

I'm going to be putting up more Karachi specific stuff, though most of it will be the life a small fraction of us live, blessed that we are, Shukaralhamdolillah. I'll try to put up a video about the other side someday too.

I know this video is AP related but frankly it was an adventure too, an adventure into my GB :headbang:
