Taken while hiking in Hawaii. My first Flickr video!]]>
My friends and I recently converged in Hawaii for a reunion of sorts, and it was truly amazing. This is a video of the five of us sitting in a shark cage off the north shore of Oahu.
What an experience. What’s missing from this raw footage is me puking off the deck afterwards — above a circling shark that seems to be waiting for chunks like a dog for scraps. All he got was ingested seawater, though, which — on top of hyperventilation, lack of sleep, and crazy waves that almost made our tour guides call the whole thing off — is what I blame for the expulsion.
More media from this trip to come. I converted/compressed this vid down to about 80MB, so depending on your connection you might have a better viewing experience downloading it first by right-clicking the Quicktime link above.]]>

Snippets of what he said:
The full video is above and runs about an hour. ‘Full’ meaning I ran out of tape right before the end, and also missed any and all of the Q&A held afterwards.]]>
Welcome to Semanal video #4. I hope you find the cheesy 80’s music as amusing as we do. It’s an inside joke.]]>
Woke up at 3 a.m. and required a post-midnight snack. Checked my email and found this lovely nugget of a link from my friend, Jim. Via here.]]>
