Erie Balloons 2008


This weekend was the Erie (Colorado) town fair. This means 3 days of hot-air balloon launches. While the prevailing breeze didn’t blow them into our neighborhood this year, they were still fun to watch. If you watch the time-lapse, you’ll notice that the clouds disappear at the same time as the balloons. I’m sure it was all coordinated.

Well, you do a time lapse, of course! Watch the video below and you’ll get the idea. If you want to watch it full screen or be able to rate it, go here. Don’t get so caught up in the motions that you miss the meaning and the memories. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May your holidays be full of family, friends, and fun.

Infamous Internet Videos


What makes something or someone famous on the internet? What does it take to be a viral phenomenon? While I do believe there is more than one recipe, there is one combination of traits that occassionally line up to produce something that spreads like wildfire over email, instant messages, and by good old fashioned word of mouth. Unfortunately, this combination is not necessarily a “good thing.”


Laughing Baby: Nephew Edition


I’ve enjoyed the various laughing baby clips on YouTube. The one with the laughing quadruplets is particularly cute. Well, now it’s time to contribute. Here’s some video from last fall of Asher being his happy self. Enjoy!

Hot Air Balloons


Last weekend was the Erie town fair. For a small town, Erie does a nice job, with the launch of a lot of hot air balloons as a highlight. On Saturday morning I was awakened by the sound of the “phooosh” of the hot air balloons and took some video out our bedroom window.

For those of you that don’t mind something both different and cheesy, here is a recent talent show performance by yours truly. By the way, nothing was pre-recorded… it was all done on the spot. (If you want to see it directly on YouTube or even rate it, it’s here)

The Rose and Red Balloon


I recently made a soundtrack for a short film. Jon Byron made an entry for On The Lot, which is a reality TV show co-produced by Steven Speilberg. It is a film-making competition that requires a 5 minute short for entry. Jon came to me for the music. The ante was upped when he said there would be no sound other than the music.

The film is now here.

This project was a lot of fun. Let me know what you think. You can post comments below.
