2018 Fireworks - Hackensack and Macy's VIDEO
« on: July 06, 2018, 09:09:23 PM »
Well, it only took about 9 hours, but it's done. QuickTime's seamstress apparently doesn't like my new OS and other upgrades and took FOREVER to sew various combinations of a dozen video pieces together.

What else can I gripe about? Oh yeah - as I mentioned in the stills post, Hackensack started the show early, so I missed the opening barrage while still setting up. The finale was VERY short............I'm not even sure I got it on video, so I feel gypped on both ends.

Usually after a great finale, I can hear the Foschini Park crowd - from my living room (a good distance away) - immediately and enthusiastically cheering. After this abbreviated finale, I listened for it and barely heard a thing. Maybe the crowd was as stunned as I was.

As I wrote on the YouTube page, here are some of the other goodies in this video:

- a not-nearby baby yelling
- the autofocus bouncing in and out
- cheap fireworks that were going off downstairs
- car alarms
- an ice cream truck that was too dark to make out and that I failed to verbally identify (it had been playing ice cream truck music)
- Hackensack after-show traffic honking horns during a Macy's segment

Other than all that, everything was peachy.

Be sure to hit the full-screen option. Viewing it on this too-brightly-backgrounded page makes everything way too dark.
