TCC for 8/10/10:
Unfortunately the haze and humidity has rolled in again and the Caretaker has no new landscape photos so here are a few more from the other day, essentially just more of the same:
In other news, the other day, the Caretaker was told by some teenagers on the Island that they liked his hat, wanted to know where he got it and that they liked his sunglasses and his shirt. They then went on to say that they wanted his entire outfit. The Caretaker said to them that he couldn't remember where he got the hat and that as far as he knew this was the first time anyone had coveted his attire. Here is a photo of what he was wearing:
The text on his shirt reads: "I only drink on days that end in Y."
Personally, the Caretaker knew not what it was that they coveted about his "getup" especially since the above attire is what he would consider to be an example of his "slob outfit", something he would wear that he didn't mind getting dirty. To each their own.
Anyway, the Caretaker had originally planned to post the following two videos to his blog yesterday but for whatever reason it didn't workout for him, however, via facebook he is now able to post the videos to his blog.
The first one is his submission to the Queensland Tourism of Australia "Greatest Job..." contest, many of you have probably seen this but the Caretaker thinks it is a good time to revisit this "masterpiece" of comedy and editing, bah-hah-hah-hah!
If for whatever reason the video is not viewable on the blog the following is the link to the Caretaker's facebook page where it can also be viewed:
In addition to the above video the Caretaker has decided to also post a video of him playing one of his warm up exercises for guitar. The Caretaker has recently picked up his guitar again, he had let it get down to three strings for at least a year, probably longer and would every once in a while mess around with it coming up with rather odd and limited songs on the three strings. He was recently motivated to get back into playing his guitar, so he's been making a point to play for about an hour a day (not that it shows), funny thing is, he forgot how much fun he has playing guitar, odd that he would have let it fall by the wayside for so very long.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:
Island Ice Report for 4/9/07:
No report, just these two photos of the same scene taken using different settings on the camera, what those different camera settings were the Caretaker has no idea.
Island Ice Report for 4/10/07:
No report, just this photo, which is a variation on a scene posted a few days
ago. The Caretaker has decided to post two IIR's today so the dates will match from 2007 and today in 2010, not that it matters but hey, why not?
