What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?
I do make videos, simple non-edited videos that I shoot on my phone. I have an active Youtube (started making them more this year) but you won’t find my face on camera except for one solitary video / vlog which was my entry into a contest and that kinda required me to talk directly to the camera. All the other videos, which are nowadays mostly food reviews or the occasional unboxing video, will have me holding the phone/camera from behind and shooting the object at hand. I am joined in some of these videos by my cousin who I shoot on camera.
Why?Because I hate the way I look and actually I hate my voice especially when it’s recorded. I’m a fat & ugly fucker and I have a crooked nose and well I’m balding badly and hence I do not like too see my own face on a video so why should other people have to tolerate it? Also, when I speak, my mouth tends to turn to one side (kinda like Elvis but without any of the charm) and that irritates me when I see it.
In conclusion, I like making my simple little videos but I don’t like to see my face and I can just about stand to bear my voice.
