“I woke up this morning
Feeling brand new.
The dreams that I been dreamin
Finally came true.”
Hologramed-in Will.I.Am and his real counterpart have been a pretty great asset to President-elect Barack Obama. The viral video became a real force to be reckoned with this election.
On Friday, he released his latest video–a celebration of Obama’s victory. It has the usual visits from celebrities (Fergie, Kyra Sedgwick and husband Kevin Bacon, etc.), this time dancing in celebration. But more importantly it has that same energy of optimism and possibility.
I don’t know how long the fact that Obama won will give me chills. I hope forever. It’s a great feeling.
I took some video of Obama’s speech at the La Raza Convention in San Diego (see my story with nearly 10,000 hits here). It’s a tad shaky, but when all I’ve got to work with is a little hand-held camera, well, that’s all I got.
He speaks about the American Dream and the Latino vote, so take a look. And if you haven’t seen him speak in person yet, I suggest you find a way.
The other day at work, our tech guy showed us this video. It’s amazing that it can actually hold your attention for the entire time, based only on the fact that the facts are so interesting. We are living in a really interesting time. Things are changing so fast. I have often imagined what I’d do without the internet. I’d have a whole lot more free time, for one. But I would have a lot harder of a time trying to do what I want to do for the rest of my life. The world really is at our fingertips…
I saw this video on YouTube a while ago, but it looks like CNN and other news sources have finally picked it up.
This guy is based in Santa Barbara, I think. A dog, a cat, a rat. If they can do it, shouldn’t we be able to?
My family had cats and dogs. I wouldn’t say they got along, but they coexisted, which is more than I can say for a lot of people I know.
