No, really. It's a thing. SB Nation has given me a hi-def camera, and told me to record stuff. Stuff you can watch! These videos will go on YouTube, on Over the Monster's official YouTube channel. They will also be embedded here at the mother ship, but fear not if you aren't the kind of person who likes to watch videos, as they are not replacing any content. Think of this as extra. It's supplemental! It's bonus Marc. (Hey, where are you going? Don't leave.)
SB Nation is making a network-wide push for video content, so it's not just OTM taking the plunge here. There is an official SB Nation channel that has some pretty excellent stuff on it -- we're talking full out shows here, featuring the likes of Amy K. Nelson, Bomani Jones, and others -- but the team blogs (like us) are getting in on things, too. This is all part of YouTube's plan to create hours and hours of original content, available on your computer, phone, tablet, or anything else that can play videos. Care to read more about their overall plans? Check out this piece from the New Yorker.
Here at Over the Monster, you'll see various videos on the latest news, recapping games, answering reader questions, possibly me bothering people outside of Fenway, or whatever else we -- as in both the staff and the community -- end up coming up with. This here is my first, so be gentle: it's on Jason Varitek's retirement.
Feedback is welcome -- you're the ones who have to put up with my face a few times per week, after all. If you miss any video posts, don't fret: there is a widget on the right sidebar that shows you the most recent videos, right underneath the FanShots, and above the podcasts.
