Completed | List3 | #29 of 101 | Purchase GoPro For My Daughter

Friday, December 23rd, 2016


Two years ago… I gave my Daughter my “action camera” which was a GoPro knock off that I picked up for 100 bones at Black’s Camera.  This Christmas… I picked up a Hero3 for Chantal to help her with her filmmaking.  That little action camera was passed down to Noah.  Hopefully they can shoot some creative footage and this March I’m going to get her a little laptop to help store and edit the footage.

Could you imagine going down this run?  I can’t even imagine the burn of your arms and legs just standing as you go down it.  Crazy course.  Crazy run.


Hide & Seek | Toddler POV | GoPro

Thursday, March 13th, 2014


Throw a GoPro on your little one and play hide+seek.  I want one of these.  Interesting video to see from a kids POV.  I used to remember playing with the kids at the house on Millington Cres.  We had a blast.  Noah always had to pee when he was hiding since he was so excited.

Bottom line:  Play Hide & Seek with your kids.  Make movies.  It’s neat to look back at them when they are older.

Thanks to Drew for sharing this with me.  I wish I had a GoPro.

Basketball with Graeme From The Everyday Challenge

Sunday, August 18th, 2013


One day a little while back… I received a message through tumblr commenting about the basketball shots I posted that were from the courts in Peterborough at Simcoe + Bethune.  I then followed him back and went backwards on his tumblr and found him very interesting about what he was doing with his project.  It reminded me of my 101 list that I so need to kick myself in the butt to complete or try to complete while leaving the things that have a larger cost to them.

 Graeme is a cool guy and we said that we should meet up at the courts.  I started to follow him on Twitter and Instagram.  It’s cool that “people of the internet” as he calls them will message him and give him a task or a project to complete and he does it.  I like it how he wants to document it through video and pictures.  I watched a couple of his videos and asked him to bring his GoPro camera to play basketball and we could wear a helmet and take some POV shots of us playing.

The other day we played one morning where my body was pretty sore… but after a couple of minutes we started to warm up.  We moved the camera around for some different angles and I even squatted below the basket and he climbed up on my shoulders and I stood up for him to climb up behind the backboard to attach the camera to take some different vantage points.

A couple of days later…. he edited up the video and posted it on his Youtube account.

After playing (really shooting around) for a bit… we sat on the bench and I talked to him about my usual talking points.  I told him about Evernote, Couchsurfing, Kiva and AIRBnB.  I also told him about Casey Neistat and how he shoots videos.  When I got home… I sent him a request to make a free loan with Kiva and he did.  He posted it on tumblr:   By having Graeme doing his free $25 trial… I received a $25 bonus and I loaned that out to Emmanuel from Kenya who needed a little over $1,000 to buy some medicine stock and a microscope.  He also plans to open his own Hospital in the future and help his local community.  I sent Graeme some links to check out of the websites I talked about as well as some videos of Casey to study how he shoots and edits.

I personally find Graeme inspiring on how he looks at life and pushes himself to try new things that are in his comfort zone and outside it.  I also like the way he documents things so he can look backwards one day at the things he has done and also share with people through his life.  Below is a little mashup of a look back at his past year and little snippets of the things he did as part of his project.
