The other day, Ken mentioned the old Jordan vs Bird trick shot commercials. That reminded me of when Greg and I made our version of those commercials. I was going to edit the video to remove all the mistakes but what fun would that be?
I’ve set a time-consuming precedent by making a montage video for every year of Elijah’s life. I got a very late start this time and there were over 1200 videos to dig through and cut down. You can find the 6th year video embedded below or head over to YouTube to see a playlist of all the videos. Happy birthday big man!
It’s hard to squeeze an entire year down into one Kenny Rogers song, but here’s my attempt. I love you Elijah! Happy Birthday!
You can find all of Elijah’s birthday videos in this YouTube playlist.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Best Of YouTube post, but, as usual, a lot of great content has been flowing into my eyeballs. First up this time is from the Flite Test guys. They are doing some full scale flight content in addition to their normal RC content. They went to Oshkosh for the big airshow and posted a good wrap-up video. Fun fact: They talk a lot about Sean Tucker in the beginning. He was the only signed photo I had in my room for much of my childhood.
If you pay attention to video shot with your cell phone or most other consumer cameras, you may have noticed a jello effect where straight lines of things moving quickly through the frame aren’t straight. It’s caused by something called “rolling shutter.” Whether you already know about that or not, this video is still incredible. The special effects do a fantastic job at explaining the subject matter.
Modern Rogue is pumping out good content. Some of it is a bit too long for my tastes, but overall, I’m excited when they put out a new video. They’ve had a couple martial arts/self-defense videos. The latest one is about choking someone quickly. While you’d need to practice to get good at it, it’s not super complicated and it seems pretty easy to remember.
Elijah has gone to Little Gym for most of his life. Toward the end of each session, they have “Show Week.” I couldn’t make it to this one, but Tyla took a bunch of video and I edited it together. The older man who is a teacher is the founder of the whole corporation. It’s pretty neat to have him as one of Elijah’s teachers!
