it's destined to be a classic...

Alex and I were talking about camcorders and I mentioned that I had never even used the camcorder feature on my digital camera. He said that most of them had crappy microphones, so I tried it and it actually
sounds pretty good.

And it only took a half hour to upload six seconds...

I'm laughing till it hurts because I ate two cookies with Nutella spread between them like a little sandwich. True story! *snort*

Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day, isn't it?

Mushy said...

Ah, I remember that sexy voice!

*Goddess* said...

$1.99 a minute, Mushy, how could ya forget?

Just a tease, to work up buisness. We get it. I can get video on myne but I can't figure out how to get sound on my camera. Sucks.

*Goddess* said...

Don't you get the sound automatically, Jeff? Mine has a circle on the top and several small circles in it--presto! the mike. I wondered what that was...LOL!
Your mike should be built in, too. Try talking and videoing and see if it works.

BRUNO said...

Dammit, I kinda like the voice, too!!! I figgered you'd sound like a frog with a stick in it's ass!

I'd love to have your voice---but I don't think it would fit my anatomy too well!

And the SCARY part is, I could pick up MEN with that voice! Nope, dear---YOU keep it.....!

Lin said...

Maybe we need to pitch in and buy Bruno a pair of those sexy high heeled boots like his wife has.

Dammit, girl, I've sworn off video downloads so that we don't max out our download limit ever again!

*Goddess* said...

Ooo, I get it, Bruno. You think all those years of drinking Jack for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and chain smoking Marlboros have taken it's toll on the old vocal cords, eh?

BTW, I'm glad ONE of us is confident they can pick up men with this voice!

*Goddess* said...

I knew you had trouble, Lin, but I didn't realize what a pisser it was till I tried it myself! 8 seconds was taking forever and I tried it three or four times, then gave up. This morning I tried the 6 second vid and it worked, but like I said, it took about 15 minutes to upload, and that's crazy. Somebody told me to post to YouTube, but I don't want to mess with that.

Lin said...

Hey, uploading it to YouTube just might help at your end but I'm no techno geek either. At this end, we're just plain screwed - download qty is download qty. I definitely swore off YouTube downloads first - they did us in the first time. Have you checked your provider contract to see if they casually mention any download limits in the fine print? That's what blind-sided us in a rude way. Once we committed that mortal sin, they crunched our download speed to 1.5K/S for over a day or so. Paint dries much quicker than that.

Goddess; Thank you so much for visiting our blog. And thank you for the good comment. I appreciate the encouragem,ent. Come back to visit again, please.

BRUNO said...

Look at this! I leave you alone for three lousy little hours---and just look at what one, maybe two, probably yet to be three, women can do to ruin the fragile male ego! And to think that I'm married to one of "your kind".....!!!

BRUNO said...

And for your info, I used to smoke CAMELS before I got "classy" with old age, and became a "cigar lover"!

Yep, not many men ALIVE today can claim to have a body the shape MINE is in, ladies.....!!!

The Future Was Yesterday said...

Bruno, there's a wonderful comeback to the last two lines in your last comment before this one, but I do the live and let live thing.:)

Goddess: Doesn't everybody eat health food like that in the morning?:) My breakfast is defined by whatever I crave after I scout the refrig. Yesterday morning, it was two cupcakes, a piece of cold pizza, and a hunk of chicken.

Youtube isn't that bad, if you read it over once or twice, then try it. Once uploaded, it gives you embed code, which you simply stick into the html of your post where ever you want it. I love YT because of the blackmail miles. I threaten a certain person to upload certain pieces of video if she doesn't get off my ass......:)

*Goddess* said...

You're welcome, Gadfly, I thought your piece was great--especially with the pictures--and I'm glad Dan'l forwarded it to me.

*Goddess* said...

Dan'l, does everyone have to be able to view your vids on YT, though? That's the part I'm not wild about. If I could just upload and keep my stuff private, I agree it would be much easier to use. Then again, it would probably be like changing deck chairs on the Titanic. Instead of taking 15 minutes to upload to Blogger, it would probably take that long for me on YT.

CHEWY said...

Ha-ha! More of a sound bite than a video. Nice to ear you... er... hear you.

*Goddess* said...

I was inspired by your "short" from the other day, Chewy. I did have a longer one, but it wouldn't upload. After several tries I gave up and shortened it:)

~Fathairybastard~ said...

And I dooooo remember that sultry voice.

*Goddess* said...

Sultry? I should be making waaaay more money!

Thanks:)
