Thanks, but I don't deserve that: What I am is stupid.
The DIVX thing put me 12 hours behind schedule and I thought I could make up for it by pulling an all-nighter. The only problem with that logic is
that I'm NOT a young man anymore. Apparently No-Doze and Black Silk just don't do the trick like it did when I was cramming for college exams what
seems like a lifetime ago. As I was driving back from dropping my son off from school this morning I fell asleep behind the wheel and ran off the road
into a ditch.
Luckily it was a shallow one, so neither I nor my ubiquitous mini-van were damaged; but it hit me like a ton of bricks: This is a video, and in the
grand scheme of things it matters not one bit. I was so excited to get this to you as soon as possible, and everybody seemed so anxious, that I
shrugged off common sense and pushed myself beyond my limits. Someone, maybe a mother taking HER kids to school, could have been killed for lack of a
few hours of sleep and I would never have been able to live with that. Add to that the fact that it is my responsibility to drive the carpool with my
youngest, and my best friend's two children, later this afternoon and I just HAD to get some rack time.
I've had several hours of sleep now, and I'm back on the case. I hope you'll all forgive the delay. I promise it will be worth the wait. The first
4 minutes are... well I won't spoil the surprise, but I will say that I've brought ALL of my talents to bear on this project - I even remixed the
soundtrack - and if I do say so myself it is some of the best work I've ever done.
So once again, please bear with me. It won't be too long now.
