So a few weeks ago, there was a Tea Party Rally here in Ye Olde DreameSchoole Citye. Complete with Sarah Palin and a WHOLE LOTTA TEA.
I had to cover it for a journalism class, but after I was getting the information I needed to be a Responsible Journalist, I had a little (biased) fun of my own.
I only had like 5 minutes to spit this video out, so excuse the crude transitions and bad sound quality. Also:
1) People were not very nice to those of us who wanted to video tape/photograph things. So I was mostly hiding my camera. Hence the SHAKY CAMERA WORK.*
*hey, the people were in a public park and DreamSchool's in a state where it only requires a one-party consent to being taped. It was perfectly legal to film/photograph them.
2) In the end of the video when I'm talking about teleprompters, when I swing my camera over to the woman, she says, "They should learn it themselves" before I start talking to her. It's hard to hear that.
3) Vimeo was being a bitch so I had to upload it in a MUCH worse quality than I would have liked. I dropped it from like 500 MB to 14 MB and the quality took a DIVE and it became much more shaky. Sorry about that. Blame Vimeo.
4) The whole thing was A Very Interesting Experience. I walked away with a lot of Informative Literature. I now understand that allowing transgender people to use either male or female restrooms now means that I, as a female, WILL be raped and killed in a public bathroom.**
**this is so totally and completely sarcastic. For the record, I STRONGLY support ANY person using whichever restroom makes him or her feel more comfortable.
Now: y'all ready for some tea?
