Send In The Clowns – Film Friday

Hu-Dad is fond of mumbling, “Yes, this is my circus and these are my clowns,” so we decided to dedicate this Film Friday to our clown show.

Before we get to our movie, a fun side note. We have long used the terrific music from Kevin MacLeod over at Incompetech. He provides music royalty free under the Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 license and also sells his uncompressed music files at very reasonable rates for those with more advanced projects. If you need music for any sort of project, check out his work and make sure you give him credit (and send a donation if you make some money).

Anyway, Hu-Dad searches for a song that fits the tone of the video, but, of course, rarely do the length of the music and the length of the video match. Thus, Hu-Dad has to remix the music to make it fit. That requires listening to the song over and over and over. Add in editing, captions, color, etc., etc. and Hu-Dad gets to listen to the song a lot.

With that in mind, listen to this week’s song. You will note that it repeats itself. A lot. Now listen to it, oh, 200 times or so.

And now you know why Hu-Dad is crazy enough to put up with us.

And with that background, this week’s Film Friday – Send in the Clowns!

    Mom sez: I caught that quick glimpse of “somepup” on the other side of the fence, too, but am assuming that was the fence that separates the Seniors from the “kids”!
    Just love watching a Siberian running full out! What they were meant to do, and they love doing it!

    It’s fun watching him just fly around. Who was on the other side of the fence in that one second frame?

      That is the Q-Tip hanging out on the senior side.

Undercarriage Dog Wash

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
