Thank you to everyone who commented on our first video project! It was fun, but a lot more work than I originally anticipated.

Still, if the masses are clamoring for more, who am I to dash your hopes?

Just not today, okay? Or anytime in the near future.

I'm a little videoed out. I'm thinking of rather uncharitable things I'd like to do to that damn tripod, and that's not right. It never did anything to me.

But, I swear, if I have to set it up ONE. MORE. TIME...

Besides, I don't really have anything in mind for another video. Although, Lovey thinks we should post the outtakes. I don't know. It's just a lot of me making funny faces in the camera.

You don't want to see that, do you?

To answer some of your questions, the cable cost $44.99 at Best Buy. Not a significant savings from the one on the Canon website, but I didn't have to pay for shipping or wait for it to arrive, so I bit the bullet.

(Any and all donations will be gladly accepted, MIKE!)


I did indeed use iMovie on my husband's iMac for the editing. But I'm typing this on my PC, so don't think you Mac users have converted me or anything. I might use his Mac on occasion to get what I want out of it, but my heart belongs to my HP.

(It didn't mean anything, baby. Just a little streaming video is all. You know I love you for your gaming capabilities. That Mac's got nothin' on you.)

Also, I'd like to offer a rousing welcome to any newcomers and delurkers. I saw some new names there. Glad to have you!

And for my loyal readers...you know I love you, baby. Those newcomers got nothin' on you.

(Gosh, I hope they don't read that!)

In other news, check out Lovey's post to see a short video of MissBurrow's impromptu birthday celebration at Chuck E. Cheese's.

(You know, despite the flashcard thing, MissBurrows isn't quite the nutjob I you might take her for. Why not stop by and wish her a happy birthday.)

gosh darnit now I really need to get the sound on my computer fixed... you looked good in the video, I guess thats the important part :)

sybil law said...

I will stop by and check out the video for sure!
You should make another video! Why else pay all that money for a cable?!

The Immoral Matriarch said...

I've been converted to Mac and I've never even used one. LMAO.

meleah rebeccah said...

I've spent so much money and time on video making. It's HARD as hell, but CRAZY fun. I love it.

-You did a GREAT job.

Emma Sometimes said...

Does Best Buy sell cables for a Commodore? I'll have to see.

M@ said...

Don't be so schmaltzy. Shoot something REAL. An argument w/ the husband, something happening w/ the family, a sex scene. Who knows!?

terri said...

The first one was worth the wait. I can wait again. But NOT for long!

missburrows said...

What's this? You're talking crap about me again? Don't tell lies. I am so a nut job.

(Anyone that follows me on twitter knows this.)

Lilacspecs said...

She's right, she is pretty crazy.

loveyh said...

A sex scene? HA! I wanted to wear more clothes so I looked better--sex scenes ain't happenin', m@

He's so cwazy!

Dapoppins said...

I thought the video was very true to life...what was that I heard in the back ground?

Oh, yeah, the result of sex...


Come on, Avery, you know you want to do another one. Right away. This week.You are scripting it as I type, aren't you?

Avery Gray said...

Foof--there isn't anything more important than that!

Sybil--exactly! And I will. Just not today. Or tomorrow. Or anytime this week. Maybe next.

Maria--bah! Mac shmac! They don't even have a right mouse button! How can you not have a right mouse button?!

Meleah--thank you! Coming from you, that's high praise indeed!

Emma--inquiring minds want to know!

M@--oh, you want real?! I'll give you real! Just don't come crying to me when you can't handle the realness of it all.

Terri--yeah, yeah. I'm workin' on it.

Missburrows--you and that darn Twitter! I swear, it's the stupidest creation in the history of the internet, but you go on with your bad self. *cough nutjob cough*


Lovey--if you know anything about M@, you'll realize his life is just one big sex scene after another. Only without the sex.

Dapo--you volunteering to be in the next one? How are you with accents?

Dapoppins said...

I am awesome with accents! I can sound like a cow, a duck, or even a cat. It is really amazing!

Dapoppins said...

Emma has a great brogue...did I spell that right?

The Casual Perfectionist said...

Great video! Sorry I'm a little late to the comment party... :) But, I have a nice rack, so I feel right at home anyway. :p

holly said...

gooooood girl. don't you give in to those mac freaks. you do your videoing on the mac, that's what they're good for, then come back home to pc-land. although i stopped loving hp when they bedded with compaq. i will slit my wrists before owning another compaq. okay, maybe that was harsh. how about i'll just not own another compaq, and forget about the wrist-slashing. yeah, that's better.

missburrows said...

go to bed holly!

(Hi avery, isn't the weather lovely?)
