In The Lab With Jay Jay

In June of 2023 I started a video blog on my YouTube channel (@JohnElliotV) known as In The Lab With Jay Jay.

The idea is that I will make videos of me pottering in my lab, doing the things that I do.

Mostly I’m planning to do OGXbox refurbs and related activities. But before I get stuck into that I need to finish setting up my lab, so there will be some unboxing videos as my various equipment arrives.

In the spirit of this venture, which is about having fun, I got myself a costume to wear when I’m making electronics videos in the lab. I mean, if you’re gonna be in the lab, you’re gonna wanna be wearing a lab coat! And if you’re gonna be wearing a lab coat, you’re gonna wanna have a pocket protector! And if you’re gonna be having a pocket protector, you’re gonna want it full of tools! And you’re not truly a professional unless you’re wearing an ID badge on a lanyard, right?

I have no idea how this will turn out, but I will try to make it interesting.

My video production skills are almost non-existent presently, so hopefully that improves. Also it might be nice to get some better recording equipment at some point, but for now we’ll just roll with what we’ve got.

At this stage I think the way this will work is there will be a YouTube video and a corresponding blog post. The blog post will describe the video, and the video will link to the blog post. I might need to adjust that process in future, but it’s good to have somewhere to start. I will tag each video blog entry as In The Lab With Jay Jay, so they should be easy to find.

In addition to tagging the video blog posts I will keep a list of them here:
