This is a documentary-style video of Hurricane Irene, before and after, in Long Beach, Point Lookout, Oceanside and different channels of waterways on Long Island in New York. I'm just starting to use a new camera and editing software, so of course it's amateur. The other 2 guys on bikes are my brother and his son, racetruck29 and bigred92394 on YouTube. I don't know who the surfers are.
Sorry that some of it's blurry; I had to cover the camera during the storm with a ziploc.
Anyway...
Halfway through filming, Al Roker came to Long Beach, NY, to start off his commentary on the hurricane. It was about 6:25 pm on Saturday at the boardwalk. I saw him while I was filming the waves and erosion, so you actually see him a few seconds after I spot him coming down the ramp to the beach. It was a pisser! I just had to say hi and continue filming him.
Little did he know, my brother was just standing in this newly formed "puddle" a minute ago and it was quickly eroding as beaches do under these circumstances.
I will NEVER forget the giddiness I felt when AL stormed into that "puddle" and almost got submerged. It's probably obvious based on my laughter. I'm not evil, but this is just one of those misfortunes that's as funny as anything and NOBODY got hurt.
There's something about Al that's inherently quirky, clumsy and funny. If you don't get that from this video then I missed something.

I hope you like it. If you do... PLEASE... Rate, Comment and Subscribe.
Thanks for watching and have a great day!

No, I don't think I'm awesome...the tags were just to get you here.

About this video, audio and equipment used:
Music is by me, playing drums along with some new-age stuff, on a Roland kit. This is an e-kit by Roland (TD-10W) and yes, it's old. I'm running it straight through an Alesis 6 channel USB mixer into the "line in" of my computer. It's as simple as it gets when recording live to 2-track.
All clips at sea were shot from my brothers boat (Thanks, Andy).
Video was shot on a refurbished Creative 3rd Generation Vado HD Pocket Video Camera. I got this on Amazon for about $50.00 and I'm happy with it. I imported the video into Cyberlink Power Director and synced it with the mp3 I recorded, compressed it as an mpg2 and then uploaded to YouTube.
Earthquakes? Hurricanes? Floods?
In the same week?
Has somebody at HAARP gotten disgruntled?
