Since investing in my t4i, I’ve been playing around with this whole video thing. And loving it. Failing miserably at it, but loving it. Seriously, YouTubers…you must have the patiences of saints. It takes me like, a full day to edit just one minute of video.
Here’s a little video from my road trip with Adventure Central.
Notes of interest:
0:05: Cod tongues are indeed real tongues of cod. Fry ‘em up with scrunchions, and they are DELICIOUS.
0:32: The Screech-In ceremony is a fun little event to turn Come From Aways into honorary Newfoundlanders. It involves kissing a cod, downing a shot of Screech (rum), and repeating an oath. Some Newfoundlanders find it terribly offensive and not at all representative of NL culture. To them I say pull the stick out of your arse and live a little. Newfoundlanders don’t kiss cod and we rarely drink Screech…guess which one of us is laughing?
1:40: Yes, that is me busting a move.
2:16: The wine being sampled here is from Auk Island Winery. It is DELISH.
3:03: This is Peter Porter of The Olde Shoppe Museum. We went into this place being pessimistic about the whole experience, and left with HUGE smiles. Peter Porter is one of the most fantastic storytellers I’ve ever met. His voice is lyrical gold. He has a HUGE collection of some very rare items, including dishes and products from England that were found lost in the ocean.
Music for this video provided by Sherman Downey, one of my favourite local artists. Thanks, Mr. Downey!
Tonight I’ll be boarding a flight at 4 AM to head off to my next big adventure IN…check back tomorrow, and I’ll tell ya.
