Honest Answers | All Volumes

A couple of weeks ago… the kids and I grabbed some paper and a pen and we each thought of 7 questions each and we would sit in front of a video recorder and say the answers.  Some of the answers can’t be shared.  Some of them we will…

Below is round two.  We gathered 10 questions from each person and we sat down and answered all 30 of them.  I left out some questions since I appreciated their honesty.

Round Three is below and filmed in Toronto at Honest Ed’s on Bloor.

Navigation Challenge | Swimming In Toronto

In the summer of 2014… I thought it would be fun to take the kids swimming somewhere different and do a little challenge with them to see if they could get us there by themselves.  I like teaching my kids street smarts and have them use their own judgement to problem solve.  My kids need to know how to follow maps and read signs.  They need to know how to cross the street without a traffic light.  They need to know when it’s safe to cross.

The video of the day is below:

Last year I went to Chasing The Cheese in PTBO and made some yummy grilled cheese with them picking the cheese and I made them and sampled each one to later reveal what type of cheese they gave me.  This year… I did it again and went back to the cheese shop.  This time… I thought I would shoot a little video about the little outing.

One Second Everyday | The Videos Already Released | May 2014 to Present |

I enjoy doing this project and would like to do this the rest of my life to document it.  I basically shoot a little bit of video everyday and I just use iMovie on my iPod to edit it up and release it every month.  My son really enjoys the project and my daughter now wants to make a “One Second Everyday” project also.  I enjoy making them.  I would assume that they are pretty boring to watch.  I enjoy them for the basic fact that I like to document life in many different ways and it’s also kind of neat to review them and reflect on the moments that are positive and not so fun to go through and all the little boring moments in between.

You can view my OSE videos broken down by Year:

2016, 2015, 2014 + the Don’t Tell Mom Series which has some of the first videos I started making in 2012 after separating from my wife that I shot on my first generation iPod Touch and edited with the crappy Windows Movie Maker that was free on my computer.  You will also find some separate little films that were not in my OSE videos.  Anything made after 2014 was shot on my iPod Touch and edited on the powerful iMovie app on my iPod Touch.

Two On Two | Fall Outdoor Hoops

Ball season outside is coming to a close.  Last night the dew on the court made it slippery by around 7:30.  Played for a hour.  When I got there… we played some two on two.  I wish I was playing indoors in a league.  With work and my schedule being all over the place… I can’t join a men’s league.  Hopefully I can find some good runs at the YMCA or over at Flemming at the Rec Ctr.

Two On Two | Simcoe & Bethune Courts

Aug 20th: Played ball for 4 hours last night.  I had the chance to play about 4 games of full court and then two long sessions of “52” that I came out mostly on top.  That switched to 1 on 1… where I was handed about 4 straight losses.  Some games were close like 11-7… but some where bad.  My partner is way better at me and being 19 years old and can drive and shoot… made my work guarding him tough.

Some clips of the full court games are below.  The camera didn’t capture the action at the other end of the court so I just put some buckets together.  I missed about 5 good looks…. but to post that would be boring.

Night Ball At The Basketball Courts | Peterborough | Simcoe & Bethune from Speed on Vimeo.

 

Aug 12:  Played ball last night and played for about 3 hours.  Played full for the most part.  When people started to go home… I picked up a little two on two game.  I was exhausted.  I just wanted to let my partner score.  It’s a boring little video… but it was nice to hit the courts.

A little game of hide & seek below:
