Cocktail Talk


Welcome to CN Consulting's "Cocktail Talk".


Cocktail Talk is a casual monthly newsletter intended to arm you with amusing bits and bytes of information on whats happening in the computer world. Topics sure to break the ice and capture an audience at many a social or business event.


Cocktail Talk is archived on


Currently, on Cocktail Talk - Cholos y Cholas


Cocktail Talk"..and he dresses like a Cholo." piqued my interest. What is this, "Cholo"?


Searching for the  meaning of Cholo took me on a wonderful late night adventure into the world of YouTube, and "Cholo Adventures".  


Cholo Adventures, by SUPEReeeGO and Sleepy Brown, was really helpful, and had millions of viewers.  It was surprising to me that so many people were doing the same research I was.


Chola Adventures, by eGA and Sleepy B*tch, was also very helpful, and lots of people seem to use those for research too.


Less popular amateur videos posted by the Cholas and Hynas were very interesting, and shorter, and many were created and shared using something called One True Media. Which then piqued my interest.


One True Media has a free version, which is what the Cholas and Hynas were using. It lets you upload pictures and videos to the One True Media website. Once there you can slice, dice, and add music and text to your heart's content. 


Once your heart is content you can share your creation with the world. Your video plays on the One True Media website and all you do is send a link to your friends. You can change your video while friends have access to the posted version and publish the final cut whenever you're ready.


They have a paid version too. $4 a month gets you a large library of music, lifts the limit on how long your videos can be, and gives you additional sharing options. You can upload to your Facebook profile or post a link to your news feed, post to your YouTube account, Tweet, Blog or download. 


One True Media helps you create videos in well defined and simple steps. Upload, Edit and Sequence, Apply a Style, Add Music, and Add a Text Slide.


Uploading is as easy as browsing and choosing. Edit lets you trim videos, set how long pictures are displayed, pick transitions, add comments, and adjust sound. You sequence everything there too, so you don't have to worry about uploading in any particular order. Styles include wedding, sports, anniversary, Sweet 16, bachelor party, all the life events you'd want to immortalize. There's a lot of music to choose from and you can have several songs on your video. Text slides at the beginning and end wrap it up pretty nicely. 


Anybody can do it, even a Cholo like me, and to prove it here's a 1:16 video of a Dragon Boat Festival created and shared using One True Media.

With my research complete I'm leaning like a Cholo, elbows up, side to side, and you can too, but that's your call, and that's Cocktail Talk.




Thank you for reading,
