I haven't opened the Mac app iMovie since having a couple of beers and making The Hassinger Street Anomaly not too long ago. So how did I manage to forget every single thing about how to take a very simple little snip of video and edit it into something I could mount on Youtube? I will tell you that it's a hell of a thing to be of a certain age and look your white haired image in the mirror and ask it, "Is it true? Is Google making you stupid?"
Well obviously. Boy, if I want to actually make videos I should make a commitment and live with iMovie (or whatever) for a while.
Anyway, I got the Timelapse app for my iPhone (3GS) and have been trying various things. I walked down the street with it. That doesn't work 'cuz I can't point it uniformly enough. I tried taping it to the windblocker in my car while I drove to Kokua Market and that almost worked.
So I did the cliché thing and set it out on my lanai (while I still have one). Kinda fun. Just sharing it here because it's only 30 seconds or so and kinda cool. The traffic noise is completely fake and imported from Cupertino, but it sounds pretty close to Makiki if you ask me.
