I’ve had lots of people contact me lately about my trip. I’m not sure how they’re finding out about it. I suppose its word of mouth.
I’ve been amazed at the initial feedback I’ve gotten so far. People seem more excited than I am about it. I told my banker about it and he just lit up and went on for about 15 minutes talking about his job and family and how he wished he could do something like this, and how he’d love to follow along via the web.
I’ve been spending some time learning more about photography, editing, and other things I’ll need to know. Nothing will replace actually doing it, but it will help a bunch to have an idea what every feature in the owner manual does.
This video is amazing. The description from the Google video site:
“On an August morning in 1978, French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a gyro-stabilized camera to the bumper of a … all Â» Ferrari 275 GTB and had a friend, a professional Formula 1 racer, drive at breakneck speed through the heart of Paris. The film was limited for technical reasons to 10 minutes; the course was from Porte Dauphine, through the Louvre, to the Basilica of Sacre Coeur.
No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit.
The driver completed the course in about 9 minutes, reaching nearly 140 MPH in some stretches. The footage reveals him running real red lights, nearly hitting real pedestrians, and driving the wrong way up real one-way streets.”
Pete tells me that ECW is going to be making a comeback. If your not a wrestlin fan, that might not mean much, but it is. Arguably the smartest move made by the WWE in ages. I was sort of between my wrestling wrestling phases when the ECW was peaking. I caught the tail end of it and have watched it on DVD. They are getting most of the original roster back to restart the brand. I can’t wait.
