I know this whole embarrassing moment saga has been kind of drawn out, but that's only because it has all been hinging on my AV geek metamorphosis. It's time to rap this baby up. I'm not really sure exactly why I decided to share all my most embarrassing moments in the first place, but it's been kind of liberating. We've been recording home movies since 2003, but it's been of no real use to us stored on those tiny little DV tapes. But now we've figured out how to load them onto our computer, which is really exciting!
I'd like to first set the stage by confessing something that very few people probably really know. I totally fantasize about being the lead singer in a band. I want to be like Jenny Lewis or Joni Mitchell and just belt out beautiful lyrics that move the people! But I have a crappy voice. It's pretty bad. Except when I sing "William, it was really nothing" by the Smiths. I think I sound pretty good when I sing that. What does that mean? It probably means I have a man voice. At any rate, check out exhibit A (video below) to see just how unlikely it is that I will be the next Jenny Lewis.
Anyway, this embarrassing moment happened on Memorial Day 2003. We both had the day off and slept in (I can't even remember what that feels like), and I headed downstairs to play with our new Mac. I had just downloaded one of my closet favorites, "Summer Breeze" by Seals and Croft, and ... well, you'll see...
The whole reason Bobby pulled out the video camera was because he wanted to record me doing this dorky politician commercial I had done for him earlier. He just got lucky and caught this moment. Yeah, lucky... ;)
