How did YOU get here?

UPDATE: I'm still tryin' to find a faster download host for this clip. In the meantime, if your email can take a 7+ MB attachment, and you really wanna see this piece of crap that's little more than a glorified slide show, let me know, and I'll email it to you. Email me at bucky4eyes AT gmail DOT com.

I became possessed with the desire to figure out Windows Movie Maker this weekend, so I'm including a link to my first effort. Because if I can't treat this site like a refrigerator for my crayon masterpieces, then I might as well put the whole kit and caboodle down my pants and go home.


Searching
This is a .wmv file, which I know will play in Windows Media Player.
Unless your browser already knows what to do with a .wmv file, right click on the link and choose "Save link target" or reasonable facsimile.
Awwww, crap, seems like a slow download from the server where the file is stored. I'll link it elsewhere if I can find a better option. Sorry! The file is a bit over 7 MB.

15 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

Downloading this video reminds me of one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands. Everyone remembers the old days of Jane's Addiction I'm sure? And even as I type this the download still refers to that one special song.

Dazed - I kinda find you appealing when you go into Veruca Salt mode. I think I will do this more often.

Nilbo - the caboodle pictures are on my pay-per-view site.

Kitty - Sorry! The Squirl doesn't have it yet either. I gotta get an avi convertor so I can put this stuff up on audioblog.


Jess - Ha, turns out your'e the only one who's seen my little work of crap this morning.
Sorry, the atomic dog will be nestled at his favorite kennel, spoiled by his keepers, and leaving us to stay at a wider variety of hotels as we travel.
But since you washed your dog, I think it would be rude for me not to stop over. And screw the brownies, pencil me in for the tap dancin'!
(and yeah. they'll be soooo jillis. sure.)

Mr. B - apologies for bein' a video tease.

Bucky have you tried www.jusspress.com yet?

That's what I use for videos.

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Mr. B - I emailed it to you. Now you can decide if the wait was worth it!

Torrie - I just now signed up, but wouldn't you know, there's a 2-minute limit on the video (this one is 2:10 or something). I will use it for my next one, which I will make sure is under 2 minutes.

Loved it! It's a shame the textual content won't add to the way folks find the blog, but very nicely done.

(The keyboards were a perfect touch.)

It took almost 2 hours to download this, but it was well worth it. Very funny and the background music was cool. *applause*

Mr B - glad ya liked it!

Jomama - you get the gold star for patience in downloading. I'm happy you found it worth the wait!

And FYI to anyone who cares: the background music is Booker T and the MGs' "Hip Hug-Her."

Okay, I set it up, then after about five minutes it had done 1% buffering. So I took my kid to piano, went and got a coffee, read a magazine, played at the park, made dinner, played a few games of canasta, made a roast duck, cleaned out my car, had a bath, disputed the theory of relativity to a group of scientists.....

And then I checked back. And it was done 51% buffering.

Amy...if you click your heels together three times, say "There's no place like downloaded" and put another quarter in the jukebox, the clip just might finish buffering by morning.

I'm workin' on a better solution to this. I'll be back later.
