Boys & Their Toys

I am officially the world's most terriblest (yes, I just made up that word) video composer ever.

Like, ever, eVeR, EVER.

The lighting is terrible. It makes me look like I have HUGE bags under my eyes. There is a ray of light coming down from the chandelier that hits me right on the head. I keep making mistakes and have NO idea how to edit them out. I'm too lazy to do a re-take. And I still have my coat even though I've been home for over an hour.

But, you get what you get and you don't throw a fit. Right?!?

Plus, I want you to hear it anyway.

Because there is a point ...

Boys should not be allowed to walk around neighborhoods with toy shot-guns and spray cars with imaginary bullets.

Cuz I really don't like to imaginary-die.

P.S. The "still" on my face is really pretty, isn't it?!?

Um, my favorite part of this video is your "showing" us what the boy did, especially the spray of bullets. Weird though, who expects that in their neighborhood?

Sooo would you consider that a drive by shooting? Er... a drive by scolding? :) Just have to say, love that you have issues with the camera, I do that on Skype all the time. Also, it's quite insulting to be fake "stickgun-sprayed". I thought you were going to say that you "fake" died to freak him out!!! I guess those video games are helping him have a larger than life imagination - in an unhealthy way.
