Apology to Rob

February 25, 2009

So…regarding the last post, here is what that’s all about:

-last month I made a goofy video, experimenting with a new movie-maker program that I had obtained

-the video is absurd, with strange imagery, and one of the images that flashes on is a picture of Rob that I had previously snagged from his Facebook page

-Rob wrote me on the weekend asking that I remove his picture, as he is using that particular picture for his business he is starting up. He was not comfortable with his professional picture juxtaposed with naked bums and a picture of a pouting girl holding a sign that says “He put it in my ass”

-I make a snap-judgement, deeming his simple request as something akin to losing his sense of humour

-He gets pissed at me for writing him off as ridiculous. I get pissed at him…thinking he is being ridiculous

In retrospect, I should have just said “fine” and done as he asked and avoided all this bullcrap. It’s not like the video was important to me or anything…in fact, I think it’s (deliberately) retarded.

So now I’ve pissed off my best pal and I feel pretty bad about it. So I’ve made this video by way of apology…

Due to privacy concerns, the video I posted one month ago called “A Little About Me” (found here) has been altered by request.

Scratch another one off my list…

Well, every once in a while I will come across one of my holy grail videos, i.e. ones that I have been looking for/talking about forever.

You’ll notice the last 3 posts have been retro Canadian ads and I grabbed them all from one dude on youtube (username = retrontario)…Anyway, I was perusing his videos, taking in the memories, when suddenly I saw THE VIDEO I have been looking for for years. I literally stood up and said: “YES!”

Here it is right here


AFTER I made this post, I perused further thru this guy’s videos and….HOLY SHIT!!!! I found ANOTHER commercial video that I have been looking for years and years. And this particular one is sweet because I went on a determined hunt for it several months back and exhausted all avenues of search…THANK GOD for this Retrontario guy!

I feel ashamed for being embarrassed by my cousin. Look, he had a high fever when he was 8 and has been a little funny every since.

In 1000 words or less, explain why this scene from the 1976 film “Network” still resonates today and, specifically, how it applies to the current state of the world.

This is one of the best scenes…ever. Probably my #2 favourite. (sorry, but nothing beats that part in”Pretty Woman” when Julia Roberts says: “I’m a sucker for a soft dick”)
