Kissell Slide Show Fun

I'm cross-posting this from The Southern Dem. I am not putting it on the front page until I'm sure everyone can view it. It is a Quicktime movie and I posted it on the blog space that my iMac account gives me for free. Maybe I'll just host videos there if this works. I wish Quicktime had a bigger screen. Features that work on my mac are icky in Quicktime. Below is the post:


This is my first attempt at a video/slide show with my new software. Enjoy! Click on the picture and it will take you to the page where I saved the slide show. I'm not ready for YouTube Primetime, yet. Thanks for watching and any feedback would be helpful. I recognize a lot of issues, but don't yet know how to fix them. I'm working on it, though.

The song, "Have You Had Enough?" is a remake of a great Squirrel Nut Zippers song and features Ricki Lee Jones on vocals. Howie Klein, of Blue America, did some wonderful advocacy work for candidates who might not otherwise get the attention. Videos were worked up for and by candidates using this song. It was inspired after Larry Kissell appeared at FireDogLake in a live-blog session as part of Blue America. This song has inspired me to get out of my computer chair and dance many times. It also inspired me to hunt down some music by the Squirrel Nut Zippers. I hope it inspires you to do the same.

Does the picture of Larry show up?

I don't have time to move it to Photobucket. I have to run for a bit. Girls have two more days out of school and we want to make the most of it.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Doesn't show up for me

I use internet explorer at work and I'm on DSL now, not dial-up! (Yay)

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Click on the red x then. :)

I'll take the time to move it to photobucket, although actually I think it's already there.

Yay for DSL. Trying to load this sucker over dialup would be a bear.

Works great for me!

*Sigh*

So inspiring. Breaks my heart that we'll have to wait till 2008 to see this good man in Congress.

Beautiful job.

Don't move it SD,

I'll watch it later when I get home....have Road Runner there :)

Great movie

but the ending sucks. What kind of no-talent writer makes a lovable character like Larry Kissell lose the election?

Oh, wait...

Larry Kissell is MY Congressman

I tried to change the ending

but Pelosi said "no".

I love it

and I loved the pictures of Flip Flopper because his bottom is bigger than mine.

Lovex7

WOW and WOW!

that was beautiful! That was certainly worth the wait, thank you SD.

Sam, do you have pictures?

I want to make a longer version of this just to burn DVDs for us/Larry/staff. Do you have any pictures from the campaign you'd like for me to include? I'm getting more from Tami and I'm going to include Larry's speech from the fundraiser in Raleigh. This one is a bit rushed, so I'll slow it down.

All I have that may be of use

would be the original mini DV video of the vlog I made ... everyone else took pictures, and the ones I've seen of me are terrible beyond words.

Would you allow me to include the vlog?

I would love to have the pictures interspersed with video. I'm going to see if I can capture the gas event video. I have to check with WCNC to see if they will allow it for private use.

Yeah, you can use it

and get a copy of the gas event DVD - you know, the one that mentions "Bisco, NC"

Thank you

Yep, the gas event is the piece I was talking about. I'm sure WCNC won't mind for private use and I'll probably only make 7 or 8 copies that I can think of. I may not even need permission to use it, but better safe than sorry.
