Flip Flop Flying

FFF did NYC

with 17 comments

I wanted to do this one as quickly as possible. But there’s still loads of work to be done job-wise, so I don’t really have time to do a full-blown FFF Does thing for New York. Also, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to.

This is the first FFF Does that I’ve done since I’ve been doing this blog, (okay, there’s Istanbul; but I didn’t do much blogging from there), and I really would’ve been replicating a lot of the stuff that you’ll have already read or seen here. I wanted to do something that was appropriate for New York, too. So I made a little film. Well, it’s not so little: it’s nine minutes long.

Again it’s a Quicktime, so apologies to those few PC users who have problems with such things.

It’s available in three sizes: extra large (40.2MB), medium (12MB), and small (6.1MB).

Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for all your nice comments and stuff lately.

  1. I do have Quicktime installed. It’s very strange. Oh well, I’m sure it’s cool and everyone else will like it. And I hope you’ve got over your jetlag now. And how pleased was Billy to see you when you got back?!

  2. Hehe, very nice and lo-fi (filming your blog? LOL!). I especially liked the page-by-page, over-the-atlas flight.

  4. Thank you.
    Yeah, filming the blog itself means everything will implode one day.
    And my adjective use is fairly limited, I know. Sorry about that. As you can tell, I didn’t prepare a script!

  5. Liked it! But I am bit concerned that you flew a very odd way to New York – you appear to have had to go the wrong way round the world, no wonder the jet lag is so bad!

  9. Did you *really* fly eastward to get to NY? Must’ve taken you a week to get there. : ) This was great fun to watch, thanks.

    I tried to figure out what the painting of the woman you saw at the Met was. I thought I knew but apparently I was wrong (I figured it was a Holman Hunt or maybe Millais). So maybe it’s a US painter and not a Pre-Raph at all, it’s lovely and I’ll keep pondering.

  10. No, but my atlas goes that way…

    It was a double-barrelled surname if I remember correctly. Not an English name is my suspicion.
    I thought to myself, Must remember this artist. 10 seconds later… puff! gone.

  11. Loved the movie…I couldn’t get it to work on Windows with Explorer, but it did work with Firefox, even though I have QuickTime installed on both.
