I went to Toronto to see my friends play their monthly show at The Cameron House in February and I was blown away.
I loved it so much that I went back on Saturday for the March show and took a bunch of video and audio to try and piece together a story. Not just a blog post story, though. Something bigger than that.
I don’t know anything about video editing or about filming, for that matter, but I do know about the feel of something, and I’ve got to say that the feeling is good. It is something that I find fascinating, but daunting.
I’m going to really try this though. For myself, because I feel that it needs to be told/shown, but also because it just felt like I had to. You know that feeling when an unknown force (the universe, God, Jay Sharp) is telling you to do something, and you just know they are right?
Well that’s what happened here.
I did have a few pints of Mill St. Organic though, so that could be where the voices came from, but either way, I’m doing this thing! I don’t know what it is yet, but I know that at the very least, I’ll pull a pretty cool blog post out with it, so it shan’t go to waste.
I love saying “shan’t” almost as much as I like writing it.
I also shan’t be blogging a lot while I work on this. Well, unless something fantastic comes up. I will still be writing for Aiming Low, just like I did today, but only until they fire my white, pockmarked ass for lack of talent.

It involves mild cursing, mopeds, and urine.
If you have anything for Therapy Thursday, send it in via the usual routes. Other than that, I probably won’t have much going on until next week.
I could see it was a rough cut Tuesday, slow motion weekdays stare me down,
P.S. Does anyone know of a good, open source video editing program along the lines of Adobe Premiere? I think that this is more than Windows Movie Maker can handle, but I don’t have the $800 for Premiere.
