The end of April & beginning of May was spent celebrating my getting older with a great friend, Elphie. These clips are what came from that time:
My 33rd Birthday was spent with an awesome friend, Elphie! I picked her up at the MegaBus Stop then got to open a present she had for me. Later, a battle of toilet paper ensued in which Elphie was TPed. During the day we hung out at the National Aviary and then the Monroeville Mall where Dawn of the Dead was filmed. There was a zombie museum there once but it closed a day or so before. The night ended prior to my heading to work with a fire at the house started by Al
Music included in this clip:
"Taking + Killing" by The Homeless Gospel Choir
"Surfin' Bird" by The Ramones
"I Am The Living Dead" by Harley Poe
In early May, I went on a road trip From Pittsburgh to Chicago by way of Cincinnati with my friend Elphie. We stopped in Cincinnati to see some other friends at The 86 Club and the Goth Mom Donna Sheehy and her husband Mike. After Cincinnati we made our way to Chicago and stayed at JPUSA. Included in this video is some silliness with Elphie and the sites along the way and in Chicago such as the skyline, a bridge entering in, US Cellular Field and Wrigley Field (somehow I managed to miss filming Soldier Field haha) and the sunrise upon my return.
Music used in this video is "No Good Triggers" by Fidel Catastrophe
Both projects were filmed using a Sony HD Bloggie, iphone 4, and Elphie's camera. Edited using Final Cut Pro on a Mac Mini.
