As you can probably already tell, this blog is going to have a very wide range of post topics ranging anywhere from new HubPages features to Hubber(members of the HubPages community) spotlights to random bits of information that we’d like to share with the world. But, as a whole, this blog will help you build up a great all around feel for who we all are and what we’re all like to be around. Well, that’s the goal at least.

For this post in particular I wanted to share some videos that I recorded on my phone over the last week or so. These videos are simple, short clips of different types of people and situations that I found interesting, odd, funny or weird as I work day-to-day here at the HubPages HQ in the beautifully unique city of San Francisco, CA. I’ll add more of these as things stick out to me…which they seem to do quite often.

A Man and His Penny Whistle
This video is of a man names Maury who was playing a penny whistle on the corner by our office as I was walking back from lunch. I had to stop and see what he was up to. Oh, and if you’re wondering, he wasn’t even asking for money – just playing for the fun of it.

An Impatient Trucker
I shot this video early in the morning as a driver of a semi truck was obviously impatient and had somewhere to go. When he realized that he was stuck and had no where to go he started laying on his horn for about 5 minutes straight. If you listen closely you can hear some people yelling SHUT UP! out of their office windows.

A Noisy Day in the Office
There has been people working on an elevator in our building for a couple months now and today they decided to fire up probably the loudest machine that I have ever heard in my life and it was right underneath our office windows. I’m not even sure what this crazy contraption is used for, but my guess would be that it’s a type of pump or something. All I know is that it was loud ALL DAY long. Not that I’m bitter.
