Annabel Scheme Unboxing Footage

Robin Sloan's Annabel Scheme arrived in some pretty unusual packaging for a book. There had already been various other unboxing photos and videos, so I figured I had to make my own. I haven't had a chance to actually read the book yet, but I knew its general setting of an alternate, more techno-mystical San Francisco.

Earlier, I attended the book release party, where all the guests got a piece of "evidence" which we then had to tell a story about to a camera. I'm featured in the compiled video from that event.

So when I did my unboxing video, I sort of went with that general spirit...

Whoa. I just noticed that the default youtube screenshot (is ther ea good name for that?) looks kind of like a deranged robot panda.

Yeah the initial youtube freezeframe was actually my face, but I picked this one because it's way spookier. :)

Oh btw, re: name: YouTube calls it the "video thumbnail".
