Ok, I don't know if this has ever been posted on here before but I just found this video and immediately knew I had to share it.

Anyone who loves film and/or has ever owned their own camera will DEFINITELY know where this guy is coming from:



(I really had to laugh at myself as i was watching this, because I too was sitting there with my trusty Bolex beside me... !)

Enjoy.

Pretencious prick! He takes himself so seriously. But it's so inspiring! I cried like a baby!

Now I'm writing my own song, about a love affair with a table lamp. I call it 'Light of My Life In The Bedroom'. :wub:

Look at me!! Look at me !! I'm an artiste! Worship my and my divine Table Lamp!!



poop!! The bulb's gone. :ph34r:
