last blog entry of 09

There are two videos to watch!

see, more snow from glencadia on Vimeo.

last glencadia video of 2009 from glencadia on Vimeo.

It was a good decade for me, except for George Bush, a rotten tooth, a few other things. Not bad. It was long, though, 70 years, in dog years.

There is much more snow now than when I shot this video.

Anyone need the music for Auld Lang Syme?

my camera doesn't work

I have to hold the on/off switch and press the play/record button on the screen at the same to record. Plus all these dogs and the broken tripod and it's frustrating to get this video done.

Here is the bigger version:

I will get a new more durable camera probably -- since they seem to get knocked around.A new battery might help but I'm not sure if it will or not. I haven't found a "shockproof" camera, as they call them, that takes good video, is fairly small, and isn't a lot of money. In fact, there only seem to be professional grade (around $2000) which would be too big if I could afford that and generic, around $300 but with lousy reviews for video quality. So, then I could buy another one just like the one I have, used, and try to cobble the two together. Whatever I do, it'll have to wait until January.

Anyway, I can do better and more comprehensive video when the camera actually works, damn it.

cold today

It's too cold to stay out for very long or to operate a video camera... so we're not doing a nice video today. Today's mission is just to stay clean and warm. Thank you.
