Short movie - "Rainy Day Muni"...

Yesterday morning I got the call that work was cancelled because of the rain. It made me happy. I spent a good part of the day lying in the hammock; the happiest place I know. I was listing to my "Hammock Music" playlist on the iPod and the happiest song I've ever heard came on. I thought it would go well in a unicycling movie, so I put on the happiest shirt I own and went riding...

3MB, 1min, WMV

...it was a happy day.

For now I'll just post the low res version. I have twenty something MB DivX version saved, but the internet is running slowly today.

I was once again trying to force myself to roll more of the lines rather than hopping. I'm slowly getting better at it and I do enjoy it more...it's very satisfying when you clean a line that way. Missing a spoke and having the wheel constantly rubbing on the side of the frame didn't help though.

Enjoy,
Andrew

Nice! Well, that makes me feel better about just about everything.

The well-timed fly buzz added to the day-off ambience - thanks for the mini-vacation!

I'm always fantasising about buying a big block of land on terrain like this and having my own muni playground in there.

See attachment. It's only short at this stage because I'm very particular about what qualifies as hammock music and what doesn't. For some reason the song in the movie is missing from the list...I thought it was on there. I guess it's only on the iPod.

I knew someone would ask me that. My brother had it and I didn't want to let that stop me from a fun muni ride...now tell me I was wrong!

...unless you move to Australia and enjoy the summer with me. It only started three days ago, there's plenty left to share.

Whoa, Andrew, nice playlist. I was reading along, looking at all the jazz (Buena Vista Social Club and Charlie Hunter, woot!), and then you have Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness on there. Bravo. I love eclectic music collections, and especially playlists that "mix it up". Rock on.

Ha ha, someone did comment on the lack of helmet.

That was my first thought, when I saw the pix in the thread. I didn't want to mention it, because I've bugged Andrew about it before, but this time didn't want to appear a nag. But since it was brought up by someone else...

BTW, your link in your signature to "Dancing with Architecture" comes up with no site found.

I will check the vid at school on Monday. At home we are on dial up. (sigh)

Andrew--

For ultimate hammock music you'll need (IMO) to add a little Brazilian "Bahia" music. Dial up "O Leaozinho," (or anything else for that matter) by Caetano Veloso. Gal Costa, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Gilberto Gil are also fine.

Great riding, as usual . . .

Nice relaxing video Andrew. Did you play the music from loudspeakers while riding down that slope? You were making some twisting moves that fit the rythm very well.

Next time, make the movie a little longer.

My favourite on your playlist is Miles Davis.

That must be nice having mountains/hills with rocks that are large enough to jump onto.

I have sand dunes and shells

Nice video BTW!

Rod,
I was actually waiting for a no helmet comment from you this time. I do where a helmet whenever I have one available though...I wore one today. The band's website it not yet constructed. I've finished designing it and now we just have to wait for our very own Brian Mackenzie to construct it for us. We've bought the domain though.

John,
Thanks, I had a listen to some of those, great hammock music!

goldenchicken,
You'd be surprised how often that happens just by chance! I plan to make another compilation movie like the big 8 minute long one I made back in 2004.

burjzyntski,
It is nice, but there are almost too many of them around these hills...what you see in the videos are the relatively clear spots. I went for a trials ride today in the more rocky sections.

Andrew
