I finally got around to loading up a couple more vids from the Skipper's shows. As skotdee points out below, to watch in hi quality, look in the lower right corner for the upside down triangle, click that and click HQ. You'll want to watch in HQ. These look EXCELLENT (if I don't say so myself)!

Lots of message board folks in these, including Kimberly and her hunk Joe, estanley and his lovely girl Sue, fnovoa-Frank the Tank, JohnDude, Beaufro, Liz, Firefly-Ute, antsyashley, and of course my trophy wife; I apologize if I'm missing someone.

First up is JUNIOR (There's more vids and pics of this Jan 2 show here: http://www.mofrofans.com/board/board_topic/5292004/394008.htm)




And next up, one of my very favorites--HARP & DRUMS (Don't forget that there are lots of pics and videos from this Jan 3 show here: www.mofrofans.com/board/board_topic/5292004/394226.htm

Nice videos. What kind of camera do you use. I've tried my canon and my nikon, but the sound is too distorted if I'm that close to the stage.

Do you know the origin of this song? I've only heard it once.

Junior is about a guy JJ knew growing up that used to bully people. If I remember correctly, someone finally killed him.

No need to open them at youtube, view them in high quality right here! Check out that little triangle in the lower right corner, you can now view HQ in embedded files. (gotta do it while the clip is playing)

Way to go youtube!

Harp and Drums started out as a jam which morphed into a song called Gimme That Drop then finally into what they play now. You can check out Gimme That Drop here:

Thanks Stan. I thought there was only a handful of people that could answer that and you were one of 'em.

One more vid from Skipper's below. A little bit of Jookhouse.

Kimberly, y'all are just gonna have to sell the cabin in No Cal and buy a beach vacation cottage in Florida. See? Problem solved. Next?!

hhfan...it's a canon. It's new, I just got at xmas. It's a pocket cam but takes great pics. (My old canon sucked in comparison.) It has a ton of features that I'm still learning. I settled on it because out of everything in the $200-$250 price range it seemed to be the best for taking indoor shots in variable lighting and movement. It has an "image stabilizer" which actually seems to work. (Check out the pics under the HOB Orlando thread...I think those are the nicest I've taken with them since I got it.)

It does sound good huh? Just have to be careful because where the mic is it's real easy to put my thumb right on top of it. It's a Canon Powershot SD770 IS.



Thanks for the update on YouTube's update skot! Cool you can watch in high def from the embed. This modern technology stuff continues to amaze me. Next thing you know we're gonna be tossing our 8 tracks for cassettes and having phones in our cars.
