Mike Fry posted in a reddit thread: Decided to get a GoPro cause of all the cool videos people make. Quickly realized my life is lame. This video made me laugh because I’ve thought that many times about a GoPro camera: It sure can do great things, but I doubt mine would be that interesting at all..
Youtuber GoreousWig posted this cut of Wheel of Fortune without the BS. Originally posted to Reddit and picked up by Sploid, This actually takes a lot of fun out of the original game, but you get all of the essence of the episode in this three minute clip. It’s almost like a Twitter summary of a news story (and actually probably more detailed than that)..
Great video of California – The Golden State by Hal Bergman. Huell Howser would be proud, and I can only hope that one day I’ll make a time lapse video that good..
Sunday I posted a quick Instagram video of my first attempt at a long Hyperlapse video. I spent a few minutes in iMovie and created a YouTube video with music from the entire minute long Hyperlapse. Pretty neat app from the Instagram folks and hope that they continue to make improvements like the ability to add sound to it.
Peter Cox has shot this amazing video of highlights from his Luminous Landscape workshops in Svalbard, Norway, where my friends Matt and Steve just returned last month. Since I loved my post cards so much, I had to watch the video and loved it too!
I always remember this as THE Disneyland commercial. When this commercial came out I lived in Northern California and we were heavily targeted for Disney ads and I probably saw this commercial 100s of times…
I think this is super cool and I would totally watch it!!
Today is the 69th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima Japan in the waning days of World War 2. In 2004, Daniel and I visited the city of Hiroshima, Japan as part of our March 2004 trip to the country. I wished we had more time to visit the city, but due to our incident in the train station that morning, we were left with only a few hours in the town. We made it to the Atomic Bomb Dome and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, and I wish we had more time to really experience the town and its people.
George Takei (as many know one of my favorites from Star Trek) produced a video of him with his husband visiting Hiroshima. George’s personal story has always moved me. As a child he was locked in an internment camp in the desert just because he is Japanese. It’s hard to imagine from my perspective here in 2014 that the US actually did something like that. Heck, even when I was in high school back in the 1980’s it was hard to believe that it happened. George does a lot for gay rights as well as just being an internet superstar. I’m glad I got to meet him and get this photo.
