More Weird Al

During my travels through Google Video, I came across yet another gem:

It brought back happy memories. How?

Back in 1989, I believe, I received the PXL-2000 camcorder. It recorded both video and audio on a standard video cassette. One of my favorite things to do with it was get together with my friend and her brother and make "videos" of Weird Al songs. I believe "Ricky" was the first one we did. I really enjoyed watching someone else who had the same idea.....

I would love to be able to put the video we did up (though Friend would probably kill me if I did -- she threatened back then NEVER to let anyone see that video....).

Watching all this Google Video and YouTube has given me a desire to order a cheapie video camera (can be gotten for < $100 now!) and start doing some of the same stuff....probably not in the same way that I once would've when I was in 9th grade, but I think it's something the youth would enjoy's got potential, I think.

We used to do this too...I had a friend that had the camera and I had the stupidity to do it. Do you remember the show "Putting on the Hits"? That show inspired me. I watched the debut episode in 1984 (or some time around then). I thought it was great. We already were doing that type of stuff and not recording it, so we started putting it out there. When I die, a video will appear and be played at my funeral. As it stands, I don't have a clue where any of them are.

I DEMAND more Weird Al!

All I can say is that anyone who looks at my blog better be glad I can't figure out how to do video!
