Alright, as you may or may not know, I bought a Gorillapod for my Flip Video last week and I've been itching to use this thing. I talked about it in this post, Time to make some videos! (UPDATE). But, this freaking chest cold has been making it impossible to even talk without coughing like a 70 year-old chainsmoker. Well.. I'm tired of waiting. So, while this isn't how I envisioned my first ukulele video going down, I'm still fairly happy with how it turned out. But, I am a little nervous, though, for several reasons:
- Now you know what I look like and disappointment is sure to follow. 😉
- It took me 5 takes to get one where I didn't cough mid-song. So, this probably isn't the best of the takes, but it's the least interrupted.
- I forgot to "dress for success" in this video. I'm effectively one step above pajamas here.
Ah well.. If I start off like this then we have no where to go except for up, right? K. Here ya go.
Oh yeah! My hair isn't always that ridiculous. You are just looking at the remnants of my mohawk from Halloween. My new wave band covered David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust record and our second set was 10 punk rock songs from 1985 or prior (Agent Orange, Fear, Black Flag, etc). I've honestly forgotten that I look so goofy, but I get reminded of it when I see people's faces when I actually do leave the house (which, is rare).
