|......lots & lots o' short videos....
That, in part at least, is what the Apology is about.
Hi Everybody in Cyber-Land! Ahhhh....my Beloved Forum! I've missed you. Crazy busy last couple weeks: other part of Apology.
Well, I have "good news" & " bad news", but before I start I invite you to get yourself a drink, settle into your chair/couch & smoke 'em if you got 'em! In other words, this is gonna be a LONG ONE! So, if you're in a Hurry, you probably wanna experience this post later. OK, Everyone comfy?? Excellent.
So, the "bad news": PhotoBucket was only allowing video-editing functions temporarily for free. :~( So, JayTV has reverted to earlier program-format. i.e. lots of short video-clips interspersed with pictures & my clever observational "narration". Sorry. Maybe Santa"ll bring me video-editing software. Til then......
The " good news": inspired by my good friend, Irene Ching, I "ghetto-rigged" (Hey! I'm from Detroit, I'm allowed!) my own helmet-cam with stuff I already had & voila! True "SK8-Cam" footage is now available!
But, as I said this'll be a LONG ONE, so that'll be later.
Back to Sister Irene for a Moment....have any of you sent your info/pics to Irene for your Vert RollerSkater Trading Card yet?? If not, I urge you to do so. Irene, is an Incredibly Talented, Creative AND Generous Woman. She was Awesome enough to sift through the plethora of images I sent her & actually picked some of my Personal Favorites (including my RC logo pic, as Front Image, which is incorporated into the elbow on each of my Tats!) I've sent her all the images I have of Ben, not sure if he's sent her all his personal info yet or not. BTW: I LOVE that Irene includes the forum's URL on bottom of back of card. Great touch, Irene!
Anyway, here's mine. I'd have shared it sooner but it took me awhile to get ink for my printer so I could print PDF file, then Scan printed image for upload. Oy Vay! Here it is Kids.
How Frickin' Cool is that?! Pretty Damn, I'd say!
People, get your pics/info into Irene. I wanna collect them all!! And you know we're all Narcissists. I've already blown mine up & put it on wall next to Irene's poster with inspirational poem by Desi Jones' daughter, Ruth Anaya. I like it. I could do a whole wall of 'em. Who's next? Don't know but you'd best hurry. IreNe is coming out my way @ end of the month for visit to sk8, babysit (yay night out for Dawn & me!) & hit SoCal too. So she's outta NYC soon....
Well, now for the skating videos/pics. This post actually comprises 2 sessions each of my Dad & I. So I guess you could call it a "Double Virtual Vert" Session.
Again I Apologize for the regression in Production value. PhotoBucket teased me with free editing capabilities. Alas, back to the video clip files. At least they're short. The ones of me are usually about 30-45 Sec long....a few minute-long ones but not many. Ben's are all 8 Seconds or less. Like Bronco rides! No, it's a concession to his email program. So....without further blah-blah starting chronologically enjoy this Episode of:
So starting out a little over a week ago in sunny
In my last "Pre-Tat" Session
I hit Anthem with my buddy Ian. Here's what Ian filmed of me :
