Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf - Getting Angry, Baby?
 
01:41
One of my favorite scenes (and there are oh so many) from the film adaptation of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" For the longest time, I thought I'd hate this movie based on the title alone. On watching it, I was completely blown away. I never did understand why people always made such a fuss about Elizabeth Taylor, until I saw her in this film. Absolutely wonderful movie. If you've never seen it, I can't recommend it enough.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding - Now You Are Family
 
01:08
My favorite scene from the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." As a guy, I avoided seeing this movie - despite hearing good things. Once I did though, I have to admit it wasn't all that bad. This clip is one of my favorite moments in the movie - the look on the parents' faces is priceless.

Trivia Answer: In "The Maltese Falcon," How Much Money Does Sam Spade Actually Make?
 
03:39
Trivia Question: In "The Maltese Falcon," How Much Money Does Sam Spade Actually Make? $760. Here's the summary: 1) On hiring the detectives, Ruth Wonderly gives them $200 (in two $100 bills). This is split between Spade and his partner, Archer (who is found dead later, with one of the $100 bills in his possession). 2) Later, after Archer's death... Spade confronts Wonderly in her hotel and learns her real name to be Brigid O'Shaughnessy. On leaving, he demands all the money she has ($500). O'Shaughnessy hands him $400, claiming she needs something to live on. After learning she has things to sell (like her furs), Spade takes the full $500 but gives her back two bills. 3) In his office, Joel Cairo offers Spade $5,000 to locate the Maltese Falcon. As a gesture and a downpayment, he gives Spade $200. 4) I know what you're thinking. Wait - what about the $1,000 he got from Gutman at the end of the movie? While it's true that Spade kept a $1,000 bill "for his time and trouble," he promptly turned this over to the police, when he gave them O'Shaughnessy. So while he did receive money, he didn't end up keeping it. --------------------------- It all depends on what Spade gave to O'Shaughnessy at the hotel: two bills could mean $10, $20 or $40. My guess is that they were $20 bills, so the total number I have that Spade makes in the movie is $760. Anyone recognize the denomination of the bills in the hotel scene?

Looking Through a Bin of Laserdiscs at the Vintage Bazaar, Chicago
 
01:20
While attending the Vintage Bazaar in Chicago (May 14, 2011), I found a booth that was selling a ton of old laserdiscs. Though I've never owned a laserdisc, I was hit by a powerful wave of nostalgia all the same. I decided to record the process just to capture some of the old titles they had. I've got a much more detailed walkthrough on my blog, including lots of additional photos of the event: http://www.avoision.com/2011/05/15/vintage_bazaar_pilsen.php Found at the booth of Apartment 528: http://www.apt528.com/

Mechanical Singing Bird and (Creepy) Mechanical Dog at the Vintage Bazaar, Chicago
 
00:44
While attending the Vintage Bazaar in Chicago (May 14, 2011), I came across a fake bird in a birdcage. It took me a second to see the crank on the side of the cage, and to realize the entire apparatus was so that the mechanical bird could sing. Additionally, I wanted to capture a rather creepy looking mechanical dog, also featured in this booth. Video was taken at the booth hosted by Dethrose Vintage and Deth Corp Design (aka Jon Dethrow). Jon was kind enough to wind up the bird, when I asked if I could see it in action. I've got a much more detailed walkthrough on my blog, including lots of additional photos of the event: http://www.avoision.com/2011/05/15/vintage_bazaar_pilsen.php

Chicago Train Rearview Window
 
01:46
This is a video I shot while on the CTA Blue Line, in the last car, looking out the back window. I usually get on at the Damen stop, which then leads to the Division stop (underground). Usually, the back car is fairly full - and oftentimes it's a crapshoot whether the back area is locked or accessible. I lucked out today, as the area was clear and accessible. And there was some fantastic light outside, to boot. It's no Star Guitar by any means, but still a fun glimpse of the CTA.

Two Girls Arguing - Found Magazine, Intuit Gallery

Davy Rothbart (from Found Magazine) reads one of his favorite finds. Discovered by a janitor of a high school in Appleton, WI, this found note contains an argument between two girls, who passed the note back and forth. Davy's reading and presentation style are hysterical, and he's always a blast to listen to. This video was taken at a Found Magazine event at Intuit Gallery, in Chicago.

Linkits TV Commercial

An old TV commercial for a toy called "Linkits." I was part of the cast (I'm in the top left, in the opening scene). I also got to play an Eskimo (mostly, I'm guessing, because they already had an Asian kid cast). I remember the whole video shoot taking place in a large warehouse in the summertime, in Indianapolis, IN.

Sleepy Rabbit Fights Nap and Eventually Falls Over
 
01:28
This is our bunny Quincy, who is an older fella. Rabbits, when they get super sleepy, tend to just roll over onto their sides. It looks a little frightening at first, as though they just dropped dead. But this "flop" is just them succumbing to sleep. A rare thing for us to catch on video. I get a pass for shooting this in portrait mode though. Originally taken for Pericsope, so that's why it's shot in this terrible manner.

Wag's TV Commercial: The Stir Fry Experts

An old TV commercial for a restaurant called Wag's (owned and operated by Walgreen's in the 70's/80's). I'm not sure how it happened, but our family got tapped to "star" in this commercial. Maybe it made more sense at the time, but man... did they overuse that gong on this thing.

Nose Cam Video
 
00:48
I went to see an ENT doc (Ear, Nose, Throat), for some additional information about my sleep apnea. During the exam, they shoved a camera up my nose so that they could see how I was breathing. Despite the anesthetic they gave me, this was still a fairly unpleasant experience. The doctor was kind enough to let me film the whole process, as it was happening. But since I'm pretty squeamish about this stuff (even when it's me), I had my eyes closed while I was recording.

While attending the Vintage Bazaar in Chicago (May 14, 2011), I came across an awesome looking belt massager at the Take 2 Vintage booth.

At the time, I wanted to try out the belt massager... but couldn't find anyone to take video of me. I lucked out this time, as they had another machine - and I totally got my chance.

This is me, trying out a Neti Pot for the first time. I know a few folks who swear by it, including my wife. I've been blowing my nose a lot, lately, and I'm not sure if it's due to a sinus thing that's been going around, or if my allergies have kicked into gear for Fall.

Justin Siddons Dancing on the Jumbotron, Bulls Game - March 11, 2011
 
00:25
Happening upon a random posting on Facebook, I learned that my friend Justin Siddons was featured on the Jumbotron during a Bulls game. Apparently, during some downtime... the cameras shifted to him, and he began dancing. In his words: "They left me up there for awhile so I pulled out all my gold moves!" Motivated by the desire to see this, I got in touch with some folks at the United Center. Sergio and Lina patiently listened to my request for footage, and were able to track Justin down based on a photo he had posted of himself, the night of the game. Though they didn't know him and didn't know which quarter he was filmed... they were able to find him. This is a small bit of awesome that deserves to be recorded for posterity.
