The Mega Cushion
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.
