Little Fishies In Morning Light

I liked the way the light looked, streaming through a side window and into the aquarium.

Download Video:
Works with most devices: "MP4"
Works with neckbeards: "OGG"

Obligatory geeky details follow:

Video was shot on an iPhone 4, and edited in iMovie for iPhone. Soundtrack is Whirling Of Spirits by Balil.

I converted and downsized the video for h.264 platforms in Handbrake, and converted to Ogg for Firefox with ffmpeg2theora. I'm using the Video For Everybody to serve things with the HTML5 video tag. Flash fallback is untested, because I can't be bothered.

Oh yeah, the oranda is Curly, the shubunkin is Chet.

Writing entries without an HTML5 aware version of Tidy is painful. Suggestions welcome.

A woman went into a hospital one day to give birth. Afterwards, the doctor
came to her and said, “I have some… odd news for you.”
“Is my baby all right?” the woman anxiously asked.
“Yes, he is,” the doctor replied, “but we don’t know how. Your son
(we assume) was born with no body. He only has a head.”
Well, the doctor was correct. The Head was alive and well, though no
one knew how. The Head turned out to be fairly normal, ignoring his lack of
a body, and lived for some time as typical a life as could be expected under
the circumstances.
One day, about twenty years after the fateful birth, the woman got a
phone call from another doctor. The doctor said, “I have recently perfected
an operation. Your son can live a normal life now: we can graft a body onto
his head!”
The woman, practically weeping with joy, thanked the doctor and hung
up. She ran up the stairs saying, “Johnny, Johnny, I have a *wonderful*
surprise for you!”
“Oh no,” cried The Head, “not another HAT!”
