    From Sept 2010 to Sept 2011 I recorded nearly everything in my day-to-day life. Each week I took that recorded footage and released a :49 second long video comprised of 7 individual clips, each clip being 7 seconds long, for 52 weeks in a row. The above video is the entire year's worth of those 7x7s trimmed down to 1 second per shot for 365 shots. It is a snapshot of a very interesting and transformative time in my life; Erica and I moved across the country, we lost important people, we risked everything we had, and we made a new home together. If you'd like to watch the original 7x7s you can find them all here http://mikeambs.com/7x7

        1) Driving back to the farm-house and watching a sunset that looked fake the colors were so bright. It was no double rainbow, but it was close. 2) Looking through an old 4H scrapbook with Erica... we turned to a page that was over-flowing with the ribbons that Erica's Grandmother won when she was just 16. Seeing all of it was a bit too much for Erica at the moment. 3) Playing Wii Fit karate at her Aunt Tammy's house. 4) Watching Erica do her "power walks" up Peyton's Well. 5) On our way back from the Stanford library. 6) Giving Peetie and Ralph Waldo some loving. 7) Sleeping-in despite having an insane amount of packing and photo-scanning to do before leaving on Monday. http://mikeambs.com/7x7

          1) Listening to Unchained Melody being sung by George Herbert Johnson during the Rose Bowl Flea Market. 2) Finding a quite place to think at work... writing some things down on paper to help sort them out in my head. 3) At a lovely dinner hosted by Angeline Gragzin. 4) Sitting outside our apartment - Erica, Melanie and Monique set some things out for a yard sale. 5) Laughing with tears in our eyes at Brian's Yes? No? Maeby? joke. 6) Filling up our bicycle tires for a late-date-night in Burbank. We watched Drive... we loved it. 7) 52 weeks of 7x7s! Erica helping me celebrate... by making funny faces on me * http://mikeambs.com/7x7

              1) Finally meeting Ayz face-to-face :) the four of us - Erica, Ayz, Ruairi and myself - had dinner at Buddha's Belly and sat there talking till the place closed. We looked up and realized we were literally the last people in there. 2) Erica was very, very, very excited by the Lionel Richie water-fountain show at the Grove... ok, I'll admit it, I might have enjoyed it as well. 3) Giving Willie some love. 4) Writing 64 Days on my new lovely typewriter. 5) Erica lighting the candles on my 29th birthday cake. 6) Taking the redline to the Civic Center. 7) Spending my friday night with some of my favorite peoples at Baby Blues in Venice - super amazing ribs, super amazing mac & cheese, and super amazing banana-pudding. http://mikeambs.com/7x7

                1) I might not love the way it smells in the morning, but I do love watching the swirls of coffee steam in the sunlight. 2) While Erica and I were walking Willie around the block, a guy 40 feet away yelled out from behind an SUV; I asked if he was ok and he replied yes - but as Erica and I started to slowly walk away he yelled "cunt" at the driver and started punching the SUV. I went back over to help him up and he said everything was fine and that the driver was his friend... still can't make sense of that. 3) Driving across the 4th st bridge with Paul Dateh. 4) Getting a brain-freeze at Menchies - where we had just seen Beth Grant, aka, Kitty Farmer from Donnie Darko. It was exciting. 5) I just woke up and rolled over in bed - Erica was in the kitchen making us that toast with the cut-out area for eggs, when out of no where Breaker poked her head into frame. 6) At cafe' Marie et Cie with Amanda going over FToM just before I headed back home to re-recorded a current narration track. 7) Helping Erica carry back in the 2x4s and plants she picked up at the hardware store - she saw her favorite neighborhood dog walking while parking and hit her head looking at him pass by :) * http://mikeambs.com/7x7

                  I had shot this footage over Thanksgiving when it snowed in Corvallis. I did not have a ton of footage, so I decided to do a 7x7 with it.

                      1) Erica listening to Xander read her his library book over the phone. 2) Up very late editing the most-recent narration track into FToM. Breaker is apparently keeping me company whilst giving herself a bath. 3) Testing out a newly purchased Royalite Holland typewriter. 4) Eating lunch on the kitchen rug, enjoying the sun coming in through the windows and listening to the news on my phone. 5) Recording the 1st http://fourwordreviews.com with Erica :) more of those to come later. 6) Heading through the Santa Monica tunnel just before the beach. Yes, I am aware of my strange obsession with tunnels. 7) Watching the sun set and the waves under the Pier. http://mikeambs.com/7x7
