Mr. Didn’t Fix It

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Soooo… My camera broke on a ferry sailing in the vast Atlantic Ocean.  Naturally, I took it apart.  Scoff if you will, ladies and gentlemen, but my previous camera broke in the same way and I fixed it!  That’s right.  I took out a million screws, put back 999,995, and it worked again… until I dropped it in a lake.  

This one didn’t work again.  I actually got it more or less functional, but as I was putting it back together the tiniest of gears popped out and I had no idea where it went.  Turns out that little gear was pretty important.

I need a new camera.  Any suggestions?

(By the way, if you’re curious, here’s the last picture my camera ever took)

Aw Crap, I’m Making A Movie

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

I hate it when I accidentally put my camera in video mode.

Then I started saving the videos and editing them together. It kind of cracks me up. I’ve set up a group on this weird Jumpcut site where you can upload your accidental videos. Please do. Together we can make one of the dumbest movies ever!

Pretty Pictures

I’ve seen two great photography projects on the Internet and they were both done by the same person:

3 Years 3 Minutes

Astronaut

I find “3 Years 3 Minutes” especially brilliant. Something about it gets to me, like that commercial with the elephant or the end of A League of Their Own when the ladies are all old.

It’s hard to take a step back and look at three years of your life when you’re busy living it. Even though the movie shows someone else’s life, I can’t help but see how much my life has changed in the last three years: love lost, friends found, houses bought, fires set. What can I say? It gets to me… like when siblings give speeches at weddings or when Farmer Hoggett says, “That’ll do, Pig.”
