Fun With Words and Video

I have iMovie and I’m not afraid to use it.

I can record videos then edit them, which I couldn’t do with my old tablet, and I’ve been enjoying doing these then posting them mainly to my Instagram.

Like this.

I first heard this in 1989 on The Morning Zoo with Don and Mike, on a day where I taped part of the radio show. Don and Mike had various colleagues read this: traffic reporter Kim “Boomer” Andersen read it very carefully with lots of pauses, news reporter David David Haines read it well, Mike stumbled because Don egged him on to recite it faster, and station general manager Alan Goodman scrambled the first few lines then flatly said “I can’t read this poem.”

I can! With practice. And with doing this in bits and pieces then editing them together, I could do it smoother. (I forgot a line, realized I’d forgotten it, then did an insert shot, to borrow filmmaking parlance. Guess which line it was!)
