Ordinary


An Ordinary Day from Whistler Whatever on Vimeo.


Anything but ordinary. A great sesaon: 192 days in length – opening two weeks early on November 14, 2009. Over five metres of snow fell in November and a total of 15 metres of snow fell over the season. There was also the winter Olympics, Paralympics and lots of great memories. I skied 176 days, missing days only due to poor weather (rain and high winds) and recovery from the Canadian hockey team gold medal game.

Recorded from November 14, 2009 to May 24, 2010 with a digital camera that took a photo every 30 minutes; the film is comprised of over 8000 images. It was taken from the taco-cam perched on a windowsill above the deck in the house that I live.

    That was terribly boring. I can see what you were attempting but it was neither enjoyable, interesting or creative. Had the time been more compressed, say only film for a week with way more shots per day it might have seemed less disjointed.

    Thanks Sandra!

    Hi Stee – I totally agree with you! Talking about the weather is boring – watching it is even more boring!

    But this video wasn’t really meant to be anything except for the passage of time. Anything that happens repetitively is boring. Could you imagine a video of you at work everyday?

    This video is probably more interesting for those who live here or have spent the season here. This video captures an event – the ski season. The duration is long and unfortunately the video is long. I made it shorter, but it didn’t capture what I wanted.

    When I first started making these videos, I tried to keep them to about one minute. Any longer and I lost interest.

    Check out some of my other time lapse videos on Flickr. They have shorter durations and it’s easier to keep interest…

    Thanks for watching and your comments!

    Hi Gary –

    I am a total dweeb and spend my life finding things online to complain about, to conceal the fact that my life has lost all meaning. Incidentally, complaining about this video of yours gave me a 15-second erection. Which was followed up by some anal-fondling while viewing another favourite video of mine which shows my grandmother’s bare ass getting spanked. I love her red high heels. I can’t believe she still wears them since the hip replacements took their toll on her.

    The only thing in my life that is enjoyable, interesting or creative is the varying positions in which I fornicate with my retarded cat.

    Thanks Stef!

    Stee – I am glad you are having fun! I hope your cat is having a ball too! Don’t forget the lube. hahaha
