What to Bring to the American Library Association Conference 2008

This one is thoroughly unpleasant to the eye.  I have since learned that it is because I used fluorescent lighting and that’s a no-no with YouTube videos.  Apparently they can’t handle it and everything flickers and becomes herky jerky as a result.  If you do care to watch it, pretend that you’re watching a silent film of some sort.  Clearly I’m still learning this game.

I fly out to Anaheim today. The premise of the film is that if you’re doing the same you may wish to know what to bring. Here’s a quick and dirty tutorial. You’ll note that when it comes to acting my primary inspiration is, without a doubt, The Swedish Chef.

Ug.  Ug-ug-ugly, that’s what this is.  Don’t worry.  There will be plenty of natural light for the next film.
