First Video in the Red Raspus Round-Up Series: Record Store Day 2012

I finally finished a new video for my new official YouTube channel and have started a new series called Red Raspus Round-Up. The videos under the umbrella of Red Raspus Round-Up will cover events and experiences with photos, videos, audio -- whatever I can round-up! For starters, I did a round-up of Record Store Day 2012, which took place last Saturday. In addition to photos from the day, there's a complete video unboxing/unpacking of all the stuff I got, including the official freebie bag. I hope you enjoy, and if you haven't checked out our new channel, head on over and subscribe...
