So I have this camera. This early generation digital that was given to me for some work I did, for a maiden, mother and crone. I've been working with the camera, not very seriously, not overly diligent about scripts, or editing, or making certain I have enough memory on the card to do what I intend to do, if I am intending anything. I film in the least data dense way, so as you will not burn up too much of your data-allowance watching me experiment.
This was a challenge from the blogger @ Epiphany Now, Luciddreams, Aaron McCarty; and Roamer, Nick Raumm; both of whom I consider integral to the SUN (Sustaining Universal Needs) project I have been working on, with the Doomstead Diner. Nick challenged Luciddreams and I to make a video-log or equivalent, to present on the SUN Website, to prove that we are serious about building a sustainable community. So I'll start with something I know about, living in the Midwest.
The Frontenac grape is a hybrid, between a Minnesota wild variety, and a French hybrid, introduced by the University of Minnesota plant breeding program, in 1996.
See that one bead of sweat, dripping .
As this is the somewhat tedious part, it helps to sing. This is a fragment of a song by Blittzen Trapper, Furr (the camera shut off, the memory card full, an auspicious #), to go with the half wild theme. I finally let go of the straining when the bulk of the pulp had been removed, and poured the remaining juice through the kitchen strainer.
I'm not sure why I shut the camera off after the first part, in this next song. But if I hadn't, the recording would have stopped sooner than it did in the third music video. Whatever of my huffing and puffing, I think I sync nicely with Jeff there at the end. Though if I had shut off the first part sooner, I would have the true crescendo to show you. LOL :)
Oh yeah. I remember, I felt it necessary to rinse out the greens-keeping bag, as it had become so clogged with fine grape particulate.
Sen'iments. LOL Blessings.
