From The Archives: Maryland Renaissance Festival 2008

Posted by scottstead on Feb 21, 2010 in Art, Travel
Out of place and out of time, the Maryland Renaissance Festival happens every August through October in Annapolis, MD. I’ve attended the last two years in a row and I have to say – it’s a lot of fun for anyone of any age. Eat a turkey leg like a carnivorous knight, have a beer straight out of a cask and right into your goblet, or eat a variety of foods on a stake. The performers are phenomenal from sword play, to madrigals, drum bands to creepy creatures strolling around the grounds. Here’s some video that I found lying around from 2008. I hope you enjoy.

30 Seconds of Zen: Swan In Pursuit

Posted by scottstead on Aug 28, 2009 in Travel, Vlog
Another 30 seconds of zen (or slightly more) vid from the archives. This was Boston, July 2008. My money was on the little guy, that I lovingly named Steve McQueen. Go ducky, GO!!
(UPDATE and NOTE: It has been brought to my attention that at the time I had in fact said that my money was on the swan. While this is technically true – in my heart of hearts – I was rooting for the Frank Capra’esque foul.)

From The Archives: Stribling Orchard

Posted by scottstead on Aug 27, 2009 in Travel, Vlog
Allow me to set the stage. It’s October 2008. The air is crisp and cool. Knit caps? Necessary. Apples were abundant and pumpkins needed picking. A trip to Stribling Orchard was in demand. Again – I recommend – if you’re in DC and tired of concrete make one of these trips out of the city. Pick apples, blueberries, pumpkins, go horesback riding – get away.

The Littlest Giant: Videoblogging Week 2009 Day 1

Posted by scottstead on Apr 7, 2009 in Life, Sports, Travel, Vlog
Whilst in North Carolina this weekend my six year old cousin donned his favorite football uniform in honor of the mighty Tar Heels and related to me a recap of one of his favorite films, “The Little Giants”. Upon the completion of said recap, he broke down into one of his “world famous” victory dances. This is posted in the spirit of Videoblogging Week 2009, my first participation in the project.  I’ve watched it fly by before and never jumped in – but I figured it was time to get involved.  Thanks to Steve Garfield I decided to abandon Final Cut for a simple project and give ILife 09 a shot with the ever popular Comic Book theme. Thanks Steve and a huge thanks to everyone in the Videoblogging group for giving me yet another reason to post videos that would either wise seem inane and forever remain in my folder of unedited, unposted “stuff.”

Kid Sister @ Speakeasy: SXSW 2009

Posted by scottstead on Mar 23, 2009 in Music, SXSW, Travel
@FierceKitty plucked Jonny Goldstein and I from our hotel room to escort her to the Speakeasy for a show featuring Datarock and Kid Sister. I didn’t know what to expect as I hadn’t heard either, but Kid Sister blew the top off the place. A breif interlude of Jump Around (it was Saint Patty’s Day) got the croud rowled up which led to this. This is her hit “Pro Nails”. She’s a lot of fun and full of energy I highly recommend checking her out.
