I was SUPER grateful, because what good is a movie without an awesome score?
That being said, I have to ask: Whose idea was it to take photos with phones and ipads and share pictures with emails and downloads and Facebook? Trying to collect all the pics and video from various locations- mind blowing. To keep life interesting, our new computer decided to organize all of the photos and video clips in fun hiding places. If I am anything, it is NOT a person who knows how to navigate computer files, update drivers (and why do drivers need to be updated if I just bought my computer) and hiding places and convert music from mp4 to mp3 formats.
Other highlights of the movie: I have contacted a few of Ed's friends on the sly to request photos from them. I have also edited a clip where my kids are dancing as if they are in band - part of a book report assignment that made me want to burn down the school. I took out the audio and subbed it with the audio from 'more cowbell' - the infamous SNL skit. Ed probably anticipates the video as I made one for Lad, but I believe that he will be floored by 'more cowbell'.
I also went above and beyond with a little audio clip Tank provided that is hilarious. Tank likes to imitate a woman who works at our local Dairy Queen. He claims he once went in and asked for a burger. Some Dairy Queens have food menus in addition to ice cream - but this wasn't one of them. Her shock and disgust combined with her accent has proved to be a very entertaining imitation for Tank. I insist that he share his: 'What? We no sell BURGER! We only sell milkshake. No BURGER!' whenever we have a visitor. And now - it is burned on the video file.
Well, I am getting ahead o myself. I have yet to successfully burn the

Nero when it wouldn't upload.
I mean the movie did burn to a DVD but the DVD won't play in our machine. I called the 1-800 number again. This time I got a guy who had some ideas
, but he was no Inder. He suggested I export the file as an mp4 file. (Yeah, look at me - with the lingo!). I did that. Success. Then he suggested I download Nero software. My file was too big for the free trial. So, I bought $45 software - that wouldn't load. Enter Mini's Mrs. Shenanigan loving cookie genius friend.
Software uninstalled. Then installed. DVD burned. Much anticipation. Damn thing would STILL not play in my DVD player. Tehnology be damned. So, guess who gets to hook up our new $80 blu-ray thing tonight? Coach is gonna be thrilled.
This thing is costing a fortune, but hey - value of memories for a graduation party: PRICELESS!
