I have known an English fellow, Philip Bloom, for about two years. Lovely human being, but something is fishy. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is, but I think Philip has declared war. You can read his blog here.
I am currently in beautiful northern California in a small town called Ft Bragg. The hotel I am staying at is cheap, but right on the Pacific Ocean. Fog, is in fact, rolling in right now as I type.
I am free to do whatever I want for the next 9 days up here. I am on vacation. I have my two Canon 5Dmk2 DSLRs with all my Canon “L” series glass. I have a Vinten Vision 3 tripod on carbon fiber legs. I also have my Kessler CineSlider.
I managed to pack an ElektraDRIVE motor and Oracle controller so that I can use the CineSlider to preform slow dolly moves and motion control action in timelapses.
JetBlue charged me $25 for the second bag and $75 for the third! Thinking about using UPS to ship the gear back to Massachusetts! Will be cheaper!
Tomorrow, I will be walking with the forest giants. The Red Woods. I have always wanted to see them and a National Geographic magazine a few months ago stoked me up to get out and do it! I can’t wrap my head around the fact the only 5% of the original old growth Red Wood forest remains today.
And, I managed to pack my downhill mountain bike helmet, pads and armor to shred A-Line on Whistler Mountain in Vancouver BC. For those of you who don’t know, Whistler is a mecca for downhillers and a dream ride for me.
But back to the pressing issue. Sir Philip Bloom. Phil tweeted out that he had posted a video “Revenge” blog to his site. I was wondering what I had done to deserve it? I’m the one who drank the poisoned beverage on the Kessler Fishing Trip! The beer was tampered with by Philip himself!
To make a long story short, here is a short video of me watching the first few minutes of Philip’s retaliation. War has been declared and this is just the beginning.
I personally think Mr. Bloom is upset that I own a “dot com” and he is stuck with the inferior “dot net”.
