In spite of language, in spite of intelligence and intuition and sympathy, one can never really communicate anything to anybody. The essential substance of every thought and feeling remains incommunicable, locked up in the impenetrable strong-room of the individual soul and body. Our life is a sentence of perpetual solitary confinement.
— Aldous Huxley (via petrichour)

It’s a little surreal in one lifetime to go from running out of money at the end of every month and living on macaroni and cheese, which is what I did when I came to San Francisco, to having all this money.

He should give some to me.

Critical Mass

Here’s another Hyperlapse video I have created. This time Critical Mass Chicago of August 2014 is the subject. Biking around Chicago was an amazing time with such a large group of mostly-positive people. 

It’s a bit shaky due to my iPhone 5 only being mounted with a Joby GorillaPod and a Glif+. Also, the Hyperlapse was processed at 8x, but I then doubled that speed when editing it together in iMovie. This reduces the amount of stabilization that Hyperlapse automatically provides. It was a sacrifice I chose to make in order to get the video to be of a reasonable length. Without the 2x speed increase in iMovie, the video would have been well over 10 minutes long.

Sidenote: does anyone know of any better iPhone mounts out there for handlebars that will allow for video to be recorded?

My First Hyperlapse Experiment

Instagram released an interesting new app the other day called Hyperlapse. It’s a clean app, with only one button to record. I hooked up my Joby Gorillapod for iPhone to my Surly’s handlebars and hoped for the best after hitting play. While the ride was very bumpy, Hyperlapse performed admirably. I chose to have it play back the video at 10x normal play speed to compress the nearly 30 minutes of video into approximately two minutes. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.
