The word “stream” in the title kinda gives you the idea.
Today’s MUni ride was really fun since the recent rains and now melting snow have been carving out a maze of crevaces and gapping possibilities throughout the many miles of canyon trail!
All the footage was shot with my sony cybershot w-80 still cam, using the video function with memory stick, and it actually came out pretty nice! Nothing that high-flying, but I still had a really exhilarating 3 hours of pure MUni fun!
Thanks also to everyone for the song suggestions. I decided to go with “Sir” John Child’s pick.
Hope you enjoy and your comments are always appreciated!
Yeah it was shot on memory stick using my still cam, not my usual video cam. It was also just a quickie and spur of the moment, but since the conditions there were so unusual, I figured I’d make a little viddy of it.
Nice, I enjoyed the rolling hops. I wouldn’t say the quality is “pretty nice,” however. It was funny, I began wondering if the video would end without you making the ‘peace’ gesture and then BAM, the two hander! haha.
Haha…lucky then I guess, 'cause I’m up to about 7 feet now…(about 2.2 meters) and sometimes to flat, depending on terrain, so in cases like that I hop side-to-front so I can roll out as much as possible. (good technique helps ) But i’m sure it also helps that I only weigh 142 lbs!
From the trail today. This carved out stream was non-existent 3 weeks ago! Nearly all 5 miles of this trail has been washed out to some degree, but it just makes it all the more challenging to navigate through it!
Haha that’s thin yeah, but everybody “wears” their weight differently I suppose. I ride 7 days a week, and so I have to eat a bit more than usual to maintain my weight, but it hasn’t been a problem.
I’ve been this weight for over 1.5 years now and so my body seems to have found its ideal weight. My avatar pic is recent, and in the larger pic of it you can see that I haven’t lost any muscle and I’m pretty ripped now, lol, so just low body fat I guess. The cool thing is that I can literally have my cake and eat it too! Extreme uni for life man, yeah!
Thanks very much! I really just made that to see how footage shot with a still cam would look. I prefer my regular videocam for quality. I’m making a new viddy this weekend with all new stuff and bigger drops and comedy bits…at least I hope they will be funny lol!
Yeah I probably use that peace sign too much, but it’s just a habit i guess.
I like The Lunachicks version. It’s from a tribute cover CD. I like the entire CD. I also like the original Iggy Pop version of “The Passenger” as well. It’s a song that works well even when played differently than the original.
I keep thinking I ought to make a muni video just so I can use “The Passenger” as the background music. It would fit a nice flowy muni ride style video. When I’m riding down the trail I sometimes sing that song to myself.
