My 'Burgh Life: Joel & Elphie Celebrate 1 Year Together (October 30th - November 7th, 2014)


This project contains footage of Joel & Elphie celebrating the first anniversary of the commitment to be in relationship with each other. Elphie traveled by Amtrak back to Pittsburgh & arrived while I was at work. On October 30th besides watching The Crow (as EVERYONE should) we went to a Penguins game that they won 3-0 over the defending Stanley Cup Los Angeles Kings. Before we watched the movie, Elphie decided to bag up Scout.

On Halloween we officially celebrated the anniversary. We went to EatNPark for dinner then drove around the nearby South Hills neighborhoods to see the decorations & trick or treat costumes before heading out to Monroeville for some Monster Mini Golf. It's not documented apparently but we hit another EatNPark for dessert where the manager I assume was dressed in drag & costume. It was interesting. We picked up a few movies then went back to the house to watch Donnie Darko.

The next day we decided to take advantage of the Daylight Savings time change by driving to the Cincinnati area to enjoy a nice meal of Island Frydays & LIVE music from The Saudades & Leper at Joe's Java in Wilmington. We returned to Pittsburgh late then I had to work fairly early in the morning of course. Also not documented in video was the Halloween leftovers shopping trip & the visit to Burgatory.

At the end of the week, I got the privilege of driving in a brief but awful storm while at work. After work we went to Game N'at to play arcade games, pool, pinball, & other games. It was a good time. The next day we decided to stop by Klavon's Ice Cream Parlor in the strip & enjoyed some amazing ice cream.

It wasn't a bad way to celebrate our first year as we prepared to transition to the next chapter in life.

Additional soundtrack includes Tell Tale Heart by Grave Robber

Here are the LIVE clips separate from the project for those who care.
