I'm hoping to start posting the occasional video here, especially when I'm in Wyoming and there are scenes worth sharing, so to that end I recorded a whole bunch of crap yesterday and then spent the entire evening fooling around with Windows Movie Maker editing out the chaff and adding a soundtrack.
But it was all for nothing. Maybe I got ahead of myself, but I couldn't seem to get the whole thing in a format that I could get Blogger, YouTube, or Vimeo to recognize, so the video below is just an unedited clip. It's a shame, too, because I had it all synched up to where the Bob Mould song started right as my foot touched the rock and I had transitions and everything. I was actually amazed at how easy the whole process was, at least until I tried to actually do anything with it. If you want to come over to my apartment, I'd be happy to show you the finished product. Until then, I'll keep working with it, and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: Five days later, I figured the whole thing out, so now what you see below is the finished product.
Here's me getting my Narcissus on at the Lilly Boulders:

Sorry about that last thirty seconds or so. I need someone to man the camera. I think they call that a camera man. And I know what you're thinking- "Dude, you're thirty years old. Should you be wearing your hat backwards? Or using the word 'dude'?" I won't dignify the latter, but as for the former, all I have to say is this: It's like turning on a switch.
And if you didn't get that reference, shame on you. Over the Top is, hands down (pun!), the greatest arm wrestling movie ever made. Stallone at his Stalloniest.
