Let's Watch it Again!

Okay people,

It's time to address an issue that routinely plagues those of us who get older each day. That being the gap between how techno-savvy you thinks you is and the harsh, cold reality of how techno-retarded you actually are (like that grammar?).

Now, let me preface this already-too-lengthy rant by saying that I was among the first 250 people in line at Gibsons when Pac-Man came out for Atari (Don't believe me - check the photo.) So, I know a thing or two about hip, ultra-modern technological advances. I don't like to toot my own horn too often, but I've even downloaded songs from the internet.

I know . . . how do I stand myself with all that coolness?

So, here's the shocking part of this lil' story - amidst all the state-of-the-art comings and goings of my 21st century life, I suddenly realized that I had never posted anything to Youtube. For those of you who have never heard of Youtube, it's a website devoted entirely to the storing and spreading of homemade videos. We're not talking George Lucas, Stephen Spielberg or even Marty Flozenblatt here people . . . these videos are bare-bones at best. The other night, I think I watched a guy sitting at his kitchen table in the dark staring at his cheerios for 29 minutes, but I might have just been having a bad nightmare.

The point is that Youtube is the newest, hottest thing and in this wild and woolly world of unprecedented outdatedness, if you want to survive . . . you sometimes have to just close your eyes, pluck a few nose hairs and hold on for dear life.

So here goes -

My first official post to Youtube - "Snow Truck Removel".

(Backstory - we had been watching this Cable truck trying to get out of the snow all morning when this other, larger truck came along and preceded to hork it right on out. I just happened to be shooting some still pictures of all the freakin' snow, and thought I might want to switch on the video mode for the upcoming event. The rest is cinematic history.)

Nothing malicious there, Kathleen. Nothing exciting either, though.

I was waiting for the Comcast truck to hit the garage on the swing out. It was a little disappointing.
