- Can't really write
an entry much better than the voice-over of that
video. So, uhm, here's the voice-over for that
- A year-end video
and entry this year is a little strange because 2017
will always be remembered as the "Fastest Delorean"
year to me. Watch the documentary and that's it. It
engulfed me for 8 months and then I needed 3
months just to decompress and shoot the final bits
with Don to finish it up this month. I still have
boring color correction and sound-mixing to do, but
the main edit is finally over.
- So for a year-end
video I'm kind of stuck. On one hand there's this
wildly expensive and emotional project and on the
other? Blissful family life to an almost boring
degree. Cam and Vienna growing up before our eyes and
our days filled with laughter and screaming and tears
and giggling and fighting and laughing and whining.
And laughing. Ya know, when it's said and done, this
is the video I want to remember 2017 by and I'm
just gonna play the whole damn thing right now because
it's so precious to me...
- ...goodness that's
awesome. As is our life. Next year should be more of
the same and I can't wait to get
- Bring on the
- Man it really
seems cheap to make the voice-over the entry on the
final entry of the year, but after the last couple of
entries I don't think there's too much more to add.
I'm clearly ready to get started on all this shit.
I also got a 49 inch 4K TV for my PC last night
that is 29 inches from face right now and it's blowing
my mind. I really want to edit and play with
it... not write about editing and playing with
- By the way, this
screen (with tax) was $359. 5 years ago this
TV was over $7000. This doesn't make sense.
I went from a 24 inch flat panel monitor which
was a really good deal at $735 (10 years ago - lol) to
the equivalent of FOUR of those stacked together
(with NO RESOLUTION LOSS MIND YOU,
four 1920x1080 screens for 3840x2160) for the
equivalent of $89.75 per screen. Sure it's not the
best 4K screen out there, I could've gone the actual
monitor route and spent that same $735 on a
professional screen around 32 inches and maybe in
about a week I'm going to have a headache or eye
strain or some shit... but after calibrating this and
getting it to run at 60hz? Whew. Guys, it's pretty
fucking amazing. Moore's Law isn't supposed to apply
to screens, man. I don't understand why this is
so cheap. A 49 inch regualar HDTV is $329 (plus tax) -
how the hell is double the resolution the same price?
I don't mean to get political here, but if this is
what's killing jobs in this country - I'm cool with
some limits on trade. I know technology is moving
at lightening speed, but there's no way this screen
should be able to get to me from China and delivered
to my door for free (thanks Amazon) for under $1000.
It just shouldn't.
- I guess I'll sit
with the ramifcations of that for about 20 seconds and
then move on. But, still. This is crazy.
- Happy New Year
