Go Caps!

I haven’t posted in a long time.  I’ve been busy but also have been glued to the TV rooting for the Caps in the NHL Playoffs.  They barely pulled out the series win against the Rangers, and so far so good in our 2nd round series against the Penguins – thanks to a brilliant save from Varlamov.  If you haven’t seen it, check it out.  Robbed Crosby of his second goal of the game.

Coldplay @ Verizon
I’ve just posted my pictures from the Coldplay concert on Flickr, where Juniper Lane opened up.  They did great, and I thought the crowd had a very good response to their short set.  Not many of my pictures came out that well because we were a bit far away, and they didn’t light up the stage that much for Juniper Lane.

Also, I caught a local celebrity sitting right by us.  Click through to find out who it was! Continue reading

Vimeo, WordPress & India Video Progress

I have been working on compiling all my short video clips from my India trip, but it’s not quite ready yet. I’m not really one to get all creative with movies, but it goes to show how hard it can be to make an entertaining and engaging short video. Dave just uploaded this one, and it’s just about bluebirds, but I can’t stop watching it.

Speaking of uploading, I’m considering converting BACK to Vimeo. About two years ago, I was looking for a place to upload my videos, and it came down to Vimeo or YouTube. Vimeo won somehow, but now compared to YouTube, the quality is better (but what isn’t?), the player controls are less intrusive, unique integration with Flickr, and you get that small niche community feeling of using Vimeo. If you have a Vimeo account, add me as a contact – my profile page is here.

The one problem with using WordPress.com to host my site, is that their security is pretty strict. One restriction is that you can only embed videos from YouTube or Google Video, until recently. If you’re a WordPress.com blogger – you can now use VodPod to embed video from just about any service (as long as it finds the <embed> tags – nerdy)

Hopefully I’ll be finishing up the India video by this weekend, and I’ll post it here and on Vimeo. Until then, enjoy me beating Don in Mariokart with a “Valet”.
