{video scrapbook: the UK}

I've been working on a little video scrapbooking project lately, taking all of the video clips from my computer, making them into wee iMovies, saving them on flash drives, and then deleting the clips. Because when am I ever going to go back and watch each 30 second video individually? Never ever. But I can't just get rid of them--I'm an extremely forgetful person; I need every bit of external memory available to me. This just seems like the thing to do.

Anyway, I just finished one from our trip to Scotland. And then I got all schmaltzy and have been obsessing about going back all week. Quick! Everyone send me airplane tickets!
{The song in the video is Grylukvaedi by Valgeir Sigur├░sson.}

  5. Love it! Especially the bit on the underground where the person jumps on the train as the doors are closing! Such a contrast from the calm of Scotland! I'll get you a ticket as long as you promise to spend longer in London & say hi?! x
