Test Video From Instagram’s Hyperlapse

Walking across the street for a midday Slurpee™.

Pretty easy to use. The only real challenge would be restraining myself from adding Philip Glass music to every clip.

You can download the original higher quality (MPEG 4 h.264, 720p, 33.8 MB) here. YouTube compressed it a bit more than I would have liked.

(No, not that) Planet Rock

planet rock logo

Rock, rock to the Planet Rock, don’t stop
Rock, rock to the Planet Rock, don’t stop

Several months ago, I saw a pretty interesting building go up less than a mile from our place. It was about 10 stories high, but there weren’t individual floors — rather, it was a large, open space inside. I thought it was a large warehouse, maybe, or some sort of manufacturing facility.

It turned out to be neither.

Climbing wall

A sign went up outside for something called Planet Rock. It turns out that it’s a climbing gym. Cool.

My upper-body-strength-to-mass ratio is very, very wrong for rock climbing (and I suffer from vertigo, anyway), so it’s not for me, but it was pretty fun for Jacob and I to sit and watch the climbers as we approached from our Sunday walk today.

I asked the man at the counter whether the business was named after the classic electro track (see below), but, alas, he didn’t know.

Sam: What do you know there, Norm?
Norm: How to sit. How to drink. Want to quiz me?

Sam: Hey, how’s life treating you there, Norm?
Norm: Beats me. … Then it kicks me and leaves me for dead.

Woody: How would a beer feel, Mr. Peterson?
Norm: Pretty nervous if I was in the room.
