Inner Tubin’

By no means am I an avid YouTuber. Sure, I post occasional vidclips of the night bike rides I go on or of unique events such as the YMCA “Stair Climb To The Top” of downtown’s U.S. Bank Tower, but I usually put ’em up and shut up.

As such, if any of my uploads get viewers into three digits I’m amazed. So you can imagine my surprise to find my clip of the A380 landing at LAX Monday punctuated with a couple of my “good gawds!” as she passed by has logged more than 1,200 2,800(!) views and even some complimentary comments and four-star ratings as well as various fluctuating “honors” in certain top rankings categories.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
