I am an idiot

September 10, 2012

Facebook has made it far too easy to say a meaningless ‘Happy Birthday’ to your friends, more so than a cheap card, to combat this I like, when time and motivation allow, to do something a bit more personal for friends. I started out just drawing a picture for them and posting it on their wall. This then progressed to me recording a short birthday message with a webcam. After a while even this didn’t seem enough so I started recording short stupid videos mostly of my dancing badly to awful music for comedy value. Last week was David’s birthday. He is a lovely man who deserves a special message so I spent two hours recording clips and learning how to use Adobe Premiere Pro (using the awesome wonder that is Lynda.com) to come up with the abomination above. I’m concerned I may have set expectations for future birthday messages a little high now, but I’m not going to back down, I may just need to lose a few friends. The music is by Venetian Snares.

I have already had two complaints from friends that their birthday messages were not of a high enough standard! I am a fucking idiot.
