ok. it’s late and i don’t have time to get into it all. listen closely and i’ll break it down for you. i rigged up this crazy camera as a necklace held by wire which made me look totally insane. i get some reactions from my employees as i play the pinecone jamm which is a song written by beezy and bambu (satchel’s awesome employees) for the pinecone contest. then, we breeze into my prep for the contest, as i race out of the kitchen for a quick award’s ceremony… as you will notice, my good friend john is giving me advice and prep for the ceremony. he is invaluable. he IS the genius behind lightnin’ salvage, and he worked about 12 hours or more today, finishing all the details of the contest… making trophies, organizing the unveiling of the winning cone, contacting winners… the list goes on. i just waltz in and do some announcing and cutting up, but he is the actual brains behind the operation. many thanks to john.
anyway, the “camera as a necklace” did not really work as i had hoped, mostly because i was too nervous to remember i was even filming. i may seem to be at ease but actually i am really not. i am not crazy about MC’ing these contests, but i don’t have a proper replacement. john would never want to do it.
the song is just amazing. if you can hang through the initial shakiness of my funky camera set-up, you will notice that the song is top notch. oh- and filmed in the middle is me picking up the new satchel’s pizza hoodies that employees are getting as one of their 3 christmas presents. the design is for employees only for now, we’ll sell as t-shirts to the public ‘eventually.” the employees have not even seen the hoodie yet so i throw it up here for a quick sneak peek if any of them are watching…
