Hash Run through the ruins of Kensington Philadelphia

Punani Hash House Harrier Run thru the Ruins of Philly from John Coffey on Vimeo.

I did a bit of experimenting with my Contour Roam camera on a recent Hash House Harrier run thru the badlands and ruins of Kensington Philadelphia. I mount the camera onto the handlebars of my bike and took a picture every second of the 45 minute run. I opened the file with about 2,700 photos into Quicktime Pro 7 and did an Open Sequence Image under the File tab and voila, a near 2 minute video of the whole run. Only problem was it wasn’t log enough to fill the 2 minute version of I Love Living In The City by the 1980′s punk band Fear. I wanted to somehow slow the video down in FCP X, but I’ve been a bit rusty using it and couldn’t figure it out. Something I have to work on.
ON ON…Sternum and Rectum.
Boat Drinks, Jimmy!

Spring is Near!

Temps in the 60′s brought the ballers to the court at Clark Park in West Philly. Getting ready to head to the boat next week to start spring cleanup and the start on the 2014 sailing season.

Farewell Stringalong Jim Smudgebottom

Pirates For Sail with Lassie Lyons from John Coffey on Vimeo.

Farewell to Jim Everett aka “Stringalong Jim Smudgebottom, one of the founders of the sea shanty band Pirates For Sail. This performance from the 2013 Pirates and Wenches Fantasy Weekend was his last (wearing the red shirt on the left) before moving to South Carolina. The Washington DC based band continues on and I hope to see them again in 2015. The music of Pirates For Sail is available on Amazon and iTunes.
Boat Drinks, Jimmy!
