The Good Stuff

Never let a good beard go to waste.

What a joy it is to watch this video take off and know so many people are getting a good laugh from me pulling celery out of my beard. It has gone viral on YouTube and has been written about by websites and TV stations around the world:

The stop motion video was built over time--lots of time--with an iPhone app called Stop Motion Studio. I edited it further in Adobe Premiere Pro on my PC by syncing it to music.
