Walk This Shui: A Trans-Parking Lot Journey

One man. One parking lot. One epic journey. One more example of how wrong things can go when you give untrained geeks video cameras and editing apps.

Happy I am that I can be a splash of color…

Sometimes the universe reminds us how cool it is just to be alive.

Led Zeppelin speaks to us through streetlights

“And if you feel that you can’t go on. And your will’s sinkin’ low. Just believe and you can’t go wrong. In the light you will find the road. You will find the road…”

iMovie for iPhone, The Matrix, and Bacon: Three things that should never converge in a single place

I was going to write a review of the iMovie app for iPhone for Geek Shui Living. Such a review required me to play with the app, put it through rigorous testing and figure out what the pros and cons are. Unfortunately, the testing soon turned into playing. Having used iMovie on Mac OS X on a number of occasions, I quickly realized that it wasn’t really fair for me to write a review.

Why? iPhone ownership and use is not synonymous with Mac OS X use. Therefore, most iPhone users will likely face a significant learning curve. It isn’t rocket science, but iMovie does take some practice. The majority of iPhone users will likely get the hang of it with a little practice. So, if you do own an iPhone 4 (Yes, it might work on the 3GS with iOS 4, but it’s likely to be a lot slower.), you should buy this $4.99 app. It will let take some vacation photos and a couple of short video clips and package them together with a some music from iTunes on your iPhone, for the purpose of sharing them with Grandma Sally, Uncle Billy, and Cousin Bernice.

Unfortunately, the sample movie we made probably isn’t fit for consumption. Its only purpose is to prove that the iMovie app, the plotline from The Matrix, and bacon should never converge in a single place. I’m fairly certain I felt the universe tremble slightly, as it finished uploading to YouTube.

If you watch it and end up feeling confused, don’t blame me. You’ve been forewarned. Seriously, I’m not kidding.

(Will I eventually write a review of iMovie for iPhone for Geek Shui Living? Probably. You can be certain, though, that it won’t include this video. After all, we do have a reputation to uphold.)
