I can finally share this very strange occurrence with you guys. About a week after Jon died, I was looking for something on my computer, and I found this mpeg file with a filename that I didn't recognize. When I played it, I found that it was part of a vlog that Jon had been making. I remember he had sent me this piece for feedback at the time, which was, I think, back in 2007. he never did finish it, and as far as I know, this is the only existing footage of him, though his family may have some that I am not aware of. He hated being filmed or photographed though, so there's not likely to be much.
Anyhoo, the strange part of the story is that I have no idea how the file got there. My hard drive died last year, taking everything with it. The only things I had backed up were my books. I had been through the folder in which this file was found at least 100 times and never saw it before. Then all of a sudden - there it was. I'm sure there must be some logical explanation for it...right?
I was finally able to open it up again and edit it today, so I could share it with you guys. It was meant for you. I cleaned up the picture so you can see his cute face better, and trimmed out some of the lengthy pauses, but I left the outtakes in, as I think they illustrate his dark sense of humor rather well.
So here's the finished product. Jon's last message to all present and future Oasians.
