Did y’all know imma stubborn mule? Hopefully that’s not hereditary but looking at my kinfolk, the odds seem high.
Also I have no idea why I’m talkin’ like I just come back from a family reunion in rural Appalachia. Oh well, hit don’t make no never you mind. It’s probably just the lack of sleep.
So yes, I’m stubborn. Like say, for example, my ultimate bloggy, vloggy, girl crush requests a uke video. And I get all, “I’m going to make her the best uke video in the history of all uke videos and then maybe she won’t notice if I sniff her hair and steal her pen as a memento of our glorious time together when she finally shows up to one of those BlogHer things.”
But it turns out her song is HARD, y’all. With, like, non-repetitive lyrics. And a complicated strum pattern. And lots of harmonies. And…generally…HARD.
So I go all, “I’ll just do one of those multi-window video things that all the cool vloggers do and it’ll solve all my problems AND make for the most kick-ass ukulele video since the invention of ukuleles and videos and space unicorns.”
But then I find out that I have to do it on the mac, so I need some sort of converter for my files. Then it turns out I can’t do it on my mac, so I have to convert them back. And then no – no, really – it has to be on the mac but I have to download some new software and then do some weird import/export dance that makes me want to stab my eyes out and crashes the whole machine every 3 minutes and also there’s really no way to make the clips line up without just resolving myself to completely and utterly losing my mind.
And then, what feels like five years later, I have a finished video. And it is woefully unexciting. But because I’m stubborn and (yet again) spent all my time trying to figure out this effing program instead of…say…practicing my ukulele, I’m posting this shit anyway.
So Steamy, please remember it’s the thought that counts. And as a compromise, I promise not to steal your pen. (I’m still totally sniffing those golden locks of yours, though.)
Now you can cleanse your auditory and visual senses with a real video – Muppet style! (Thanks for not letting me miss that, Abigail!)
It’s not quite MSBT, so you guys just go ahead and keep on drinking without me. *sigh*
