      Hello community,


      My name is Olin Borse. I'm from a town called Petaluma located in the Sonoma-County of Northern California (about 40 miles north of San Francisco). On Monday October 9th, a massive wildfire erupted in Santa Rosa sometime in the early hours of the morning and has been rapidly increasing over the last few days. Neighboring towns such as Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Rhonert Park, Cotati, Petaluma (my hometown), and many others are being affected by this disaster (some more-so than others). So far 21 have been confirmed dead, hundreds are missing, and thousands of buildings and land have been destroyed. Many people (including close friends of mine) have lost their homes completely. The Petaluma community has been doing a wonderful job with donations and assisting evacuees to safe zones but the fire is still at large. Various roads are closed, the air quality has reached moderate-to-unhealthy conditions, and tap water is not safe to drink. Gov. Jerry Brown has issued this as a State of Emergency.

      My parents and girlfriend reside in Petaluma and are thankfully safe. As soon as I caught word of the fire I rushed from San Francisco to be with them. We are currently on standby waiting to hear updates. At the moment there is no need for us to evacuate but we are prepared in the event that we have to. It breaks my heart to see so many beautiful areas destroyed; many of which I grew up around and have fond memories of...


      It's not often I ask for donations, but this is an exception. I am going to link various charity websites that will directly benefit the people affected by this disaster. I know it is a lot to ask people for money, but if you find it in your heart to contribute even a small amount of money to any of these causes, it would mean the world to me and the people of this area. Every little bit helps and it will go a long way. Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers as the firefighters of the area try to control the fire. 


      Please spread the word. God bless you all <3

      Almost didn't get this one out on time due to time conflicts (and being too lazy to edit it). But I did it!

      Almost didn't get this one up on time due to getting incredibly sick. But thankfully, I started feeling better on Thursday and mustered up the strength to finish it on time.

      This week's vlog doesn't have a title or theme... and it was almost not finished on time. Had to do a massive editing crunch in order to have the video uploaded today. But I did it and here it is!

      New vlog! Hey, it's my birthday! This video is a bit late to the party, but it was recorded during the week of my 24th birthday so it still counts! Here I show the things that I recieved as gifts from both my girlfriend and myself (because we know me so well!) Thank you to those who gave me birthday wishes. I love you all!

    • Amoeba & Chill [Episode 11]

      2 years ago

      Olin

      When I first started my music vlog channel on YouTube, I was producing a show called "Amoeba & Chill." The idea was that 1 or more friends and I would shop at Amoeba and show off all of the things that we got to make a fun little video. Making episodes of this show eventually turned into making solo vlogs of things that I got and wanted to show off. A&C went on a little hiatus, mostly because I couldn't really get any guests who were comfortable in front of a camera to appear on the show. But my friend Lauren here (who also appeared in episode 7) was visiting from Portland and that became a prime opportunity to make another episode. We both had tons of fun filming this video and I had equal amounts of fun editing it. I'm hoping in the near future I can find more people who would be interested in being on the show. But until then, enjoy this episode!

      CDs seem like they get all the attention on my vlogs. That's not fair, is it? This week I'm giving vinyl a chance to shine by presenting all my picks in vinyl form. If you know me and my music taste then some of these selections may not suprise you, but they're still great nontheless.

    • WILT Vlog: The Lost Vlog!

      Olin

      2 years ago, I had posted a status asked people to reccomend me bands and albums to check out at Amoeba. I bought a bunch of those reccomendations, filmed a vlog for it, but never edited it... UNTIL NOW! This week's vlog comes straight out of 2015 when I was just starting out with this whole vlog thing. You can tell I don't really know what to say at times, but it's still a fun video. It only took 2 years to finish this thing, but better late than never.

      NEW VLOG!
      I'm especially happy about how this one turned out. There's a bunch of good picks shown here. The pick at the end has been the album I've been listening to the most this year. It's beautiful. "What is it?" you may ask. Watch and find out ;)

        Normally you'd make a write-up of who it is you're listening to, description of them, etc. etc. However, I think I'll make you an admin of the group since you're a pretty cool guy. That should also grant you access to posting on the group's news.

      I'm guessing that you made the song for this weeks podcast. I thought it was funny that you spoofed the Natalie Portman rap on a podcast that talked about her.
