Up a tree

I got my first look at a Go Pro camera in an electronics store in the Cincinnati Airport over Halloween weekend. I had seen video footage from one before, but the clips they had on a loop at the store entrance sucked me right in.

So I completely understand why this squirrel felt the need to ‘grab and go.’

He’s a pretty good cameraman, yes?

A bust

bubble wrapApparently some companies still think going ‘viral’ on social media is akin to catching ebola.

Case in point: Sealed Air, manufacturer of bubble wrap.

They recently posted a video of one of their plant foreman explaining how bubble wrap is made in response to a child’s question.

It reminded me of a segment of Unwrapped on Food Network, where they show you how gummy bears, for example, go from their sugary ingredients through the factory to packaging and ultimately the grocery story and your tummy.

The bubble wrap video caught the attention of several bloggers and was even the subject of a Reddit.  But soon after I viewed the video, Sealed Air took it down.

Off the blogs. Off any online mention.  And even off their own site, from what I can tell.

What gives?  Don’t they know all this chatter about a video on bubble wrap (of all things) is amazing?

Revel in the attention, guys.  Don’t burst our bubble.

It’s a good thing I don’t distinguish between feet and hands, or this game might offend me.

See for yourself

My blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds of late have been filled with praise for The Bridges of Madison County, which ended its too-short Broadway run this past Sunday.

I was fortunate enough to see the show twice, including its final performance.  But for those of you who were not able to attend — and perhaps have smiled indulgently at my near-obsessive behavior — I wanted to give you a taste of the quality performance I enjoyed.

Here’s Steven Pasquale performing “It All Fades Away” for the studio recording. (The note at 3:20 literally fills  your head during the live performance.)

We’re really nice

While this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live with guest host Charlize Theron won’t go on any “Best of” lists, there was one Digital Short that is getting a lot of attention.

SNLTourists

 

In “Tourists,” SNL cast members (including Theron) dressed up as — you got it — tourists and pranked the good people of New York City with indecipherable questions, unknown accents, picture taking confusion and general craziness.

It was very funny.

And I want to point out — despite all the weirdness that SNL threw at them, every New Yorker really tried to help them out.

Points for us!

Big Blue Gratitude

At the beginning of March, I never would have dreamed that the 2014 NCAA tournament would be so much fun (or that my bracket — with my alma mater Kentucky in the finals — would be so highly accurate).

All those nail-biter games with Harrison’s incredible last-second shots (joined together in this composite video below)!

I am so proud of what this Kentucky Wildcats team has accomplished –

Thanks for the memories, guys!
