Things I’ve Wasted Money On

with one comment

On the drive to work this morning I was thinking about things I bought ‘recently’ that so far have turned out to be a waste of money. Off the top of my head I came up with:

  • the mandolin
  • final cut express
  • book on how to use final cut express

I’m sure there’s more but I’m definitely disappointed that those things have yet to deliver me anything.

I Have Arrived!

without comments

Since Feb 2008 I’ve uploaded 29 videos to YouTube. Most get 40-60 views, a few have over 100, one has over 400 but really I’m just a pimple on the buttocks of the video giant.

So imagine my surprise today when I got an email saying someone had uploaded a video response to one of my videos. And not a recent one, one from May of this year in fact. Some of you may remember my sad puppet tale of H1N1 in the house – some of you will have taken therapy or drugs to erase the memory.

But somehow, some way, somebody found my video and decided to waste 30 seconds of their life making a retort. Friends, I have arrived.

The original video:

The response:

Can a Best Director be far away??

Cattle Call Rodeo Video 2009

without comments

Another year, another great Cattle Call weekend. There will be pictures from the Parade and the Rodeo on flickr at some point during the week but for now, here’s a little video montage I put together.

Brawley Cattle Call Rodeo 2009 from Paul Sanders on Vimeo.

My cousin Louise seemed to really enjoy herself, I think we made her a rodeo fan. Cowgirl up.

Cattle Call Lesson #49

without comments

Every year during the Cattle Call weekend out here in Brawley I am reminded of a fact that I would believe if I did not witness it with my own eyes: given enough time, and sufficient bladder capability, it IS possible to get sh*t-faced on Budweiser and Bud Light.
