MC bought me a swell gift for Christmas – the Flip Mino HD – a tiny wonder that delivers on the promise of high quality video in a small package. The only real issue I have with it is that being so small, it is difficult to keep steady. Perhaps with time and practice I’ll improve. However, the upside of the stealth profile is that almost no one notices I am filming them at all, allowing me to capture people in very natural moments. Also, according to my buddy noneck, you can hack your flip, adding a wide angle lens to it!
Anyhow, enjoy this four minute peek into my Christmas day revelry….
My brother Robert calls in from his basement, where he was on flood watch, on the lookout for mysterious bubbling spring water emerging out of the ground. We reminisce about being “on the job” with the Vacaville Fire Department and look at photographs from his brief visit to Obama, Japan.
Another day, another niece… you see I have a lot of them – nephews, too! Sara was eager to be interviewed after seeing her cousin Paloma on yesterday. We talk about the Phillies, gymnastics, webkinz, buildabearville and of course, the election!
Next up, my niece Paloma, who spent Tuesday night at Obama HQ in Sacramento with her mom counting electoral votes, dressed up at school recently as Thelma from Scooby Doo, thinks gay people are “just gay people”, and wants everyone to know that “Lice are going around!”.
