Unemployed & 96 Hours Sober. So What Do You Do With Yourself?

So I'm in the middle of an email exchange between Chris K and Kovas about the ground rules for this Burpee contest that Kovas has roped us in for.  I suggested cheating via video manipulation.  Being the contrarian that he is, Kovas immediately called my video skills into question.   And then I suddenly remembered that I had a video demonstrating my mad editing skillz safely hidden in the open amongst the zillions of videos on YouTube.

I have put myself out there before on this blog by admitting a lot about my past.  But posting this will raise the bar.  I just watched it for the first time in a couple years and I am still shivering from embarrassment.  So naturally, I need to show the video to you guys.

This is me on the Monday after the Friday I left my business in June 2008.  Also, I had stopped drinking 4 days previous.  But as the video shows, the thought of getting in shape hadn't occurred to me yet.  This is most likely the last evidence of me not being in complete control of my facilities.  Enjoy...

Wow .. the flute solo was off the hook.

As you were smacking around the stuffed beaver all I could think was that your wife must be an absolute SAINT.

This was actually pretty damn funny dude!

This is hilarious. The beaver smaking brought to mind Caddy Shack.

You do have some talents at video-editing....I think you can win the burpee contest with that.

Brilliant! Can we expect more of these to come? ;)

Kovas said...

Santayana once said, "Those Who Forget History Are Doomed to Repeat It" - keep this around next time you are feeling cocky and sure of yourself.

PS You need to make a video for Home Again, still my favorite song of yours.

Pretend This Is Real and Kovas, seriously be careful for what you wish for. The stuffed beaver is alive and well.

I would have loved to have been your neighbor during the beaver-smackdown filming.

Jennifer said...

I'm cracking up... this is so wrong, it's right. Love it. And yes, more please.

Okay, this video is amazing. You are my hero.

If I ever decide to actually have a wedding you can be the videographer. Don't you feel special?

I think that video is awesome. You have more talent in your little finger than I'll ever have. You can sing, play the guitar, I'd kill for those skills.
