On Sundays, I’ll occasionally look back at an older post in light of recent events. Today I’m revisiting my little video that started just about everything here on the blog: Enter The Librarian!
It’s not popular like the dramatic hamster on Youtube, but my poor-quality video here was the start of everything. Many things about it are memorable to me, including the ten hours I spent that day learning how to convert videos from my camcorder to my computer, then compressing the video from there, and fiddling around with iMovie.
I remember that I was so disappointed with how grainy it was, but nobody else seemed to mind. People started to visit, people started to talk, and that was that.
Also, I’m now 30 lbs heavier than I was here, I’ve moved up to weights that are nearly 90 lbs heavier, and I can tear phonebooks that are three times as thick as the one in the video.
But perhaps best of all, and for those of you who know me, this will make your day: this video was rejected by the online video service Revver, for…wait for it…
That’s me! Mr. Hatemonger. “Evil Russian, indeed.”
