Learn Bartending: Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster cocktail

My buddy George dropped by to put on a cocktail making clinic and share his own modification to a Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters recipe he found somewhere on this thingy the kids call the inter-web.  The Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters cocktail is an amusing little drink that is worthy of any warm evening.  To further amuse your friends at parties (trust me, after a few of these bad boys, it’ll be easy), you can explain that this drink traces its origins back to the novel, A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which describes it as the best drink in the universe.  As far as drinks go, it’s a sweet one – I guess it’s a cocktail…  I understand that a cocktail is any alcoholic mixed drink that contains two or more ingredients…  whatever.  Here is his recipe:  Read the rest of this entry

Dogs in the Snow video

Welcome to my first video offering, Dogs in the Snow.  Here, you’ll get a simple glimpse of my Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky playing in the snow.  Not much going on here – just a few tiny edits.

I shot this on my new Canon VIXIA HF M300.  It’s incredible how tiny this camera is and the results speak for themselves.  It has pretty much everything I could want in a camcorder – it’s light weight, mic input, video light, camera flash, headphone jack – it’s pretty sweet.  This was a generous gift from my sister and brother in law.  I edited this with the software it came with (if you can call that editing), and it’s clear that the PIXELA Image Mixer software is just not up to the challenge – if you’re used to Final Cut or Adobe Premier, the primitive controls and pathetic playback abilities will make you nuts in moments.  I don’t know what I expected for free software that came with the camera, but it sucks.

This is also my first upload to YouTube – it was pretty easy.  However, if you can edit the description after you post the video, I haven’t figured out how.  Anyway, there’s more to videos to come!
