Osama Bin Laden has been killed. I have just found out. This posted is being written after president Obama's speech. There is cheering outside this white house right now. This is going to be a historic event for a very, very long time. Watch MSNBC right now.

This weekend, I will be trying new green screen software. I will be testing lighting and clothes change. I will be doing a lot of tests. I have never done this before and I need to make sure props are in the right place. This might change TPA forever.

I apologize for not uploading anything in a while. I have had some trouble with the partners of TPA and transportation. I have many ideas for movies but cannot film for reasons I will not get into. I do wish I could film this weekend but cannot get a hold of my business partner. Filming will not happen for the next couple of weeks. Please stay a fan of TPA and I promise it will be worth it.

The is the first video of my website. The video originally came to mind because i was bored. I was alone on a Friday night and I thought that I would make a giant cushion with the pillows on my couch and the pillows I sleep with. Then just fall on them. I was going to replay the video on my laptop in slow-mo to see what my body looks like before and after i make contact with the pillows. Thats the reason I recorded it on my laptop. Then I really pumped about falling that I decided to put my laptop in different locations to see if I get a less blurry result. I didn't. The instant second before I make contact with the pillows, I feel the gravity really take over my body and I feel a rush of air hit my shirt before I make contact. After about 6 falls, I was tired so I went to bed. The next day, I all of a sudden really wanted to make a website and put random things on it. Blogger is close enough to a website. It's free too. Then I was thinking about what I was going to do at my dad's house the next weekend. One of the things was to play Kinect Sports on our Xbox 360˚. I remember thinking about what difficulty I wanted to choose. My choice was either Amateur or Professional. Then I started combining words for a reason I don't know why. Then I put Professional behind Amateur. And Thus, The Professional Amateur was born. I thought that having a TV on and Dr. Pepper cans all over the place was amateurish. But in my opinion, I thought the music, breaking up the videos of me falling, and slowing down the videos of my climbing on the chair was real professional. Here is my result of being a Professional Amateur.
