Today, 10 yrs ago, was an epic party at our house. Well, maybe not epic.. but more memorable than most! This was the party where John The Candien famously puked on our couch. He’s probably really tired of hearing about it, even 10 yrs later. But I wrote this post in 2009 so for me it’s only 7 yrs later. And he doesn’t do stuff like that these days. Anyway, here are some videos from the party 10 yrs ago today. They also show how our house looked before the addition; those rooms were small (not really; just small in comparison).
Here is a 10-minute montage of all our favorite slices of life from the party:
And here are the individual videos from the party:
#1: John’s first drink. Not much going on.
#2: John’s 4th drink.
#3: Various people talking about some fun New Orleans bar they couldn’t find their way back to. Listen for Dig-Dug in the background!
#4: People start noticing the camera. Wayne talks about a lost pack of cigarettes. The nature of the webcam is discussed (it’s record, not broadcasting). Becky suggests that we start playing Strip Poker soon:
#5: People play with our spinning-message-maker light/toy thingee:
#6-#7: Not much happens here, except for mingling. You can still hear Dig-Dug in the background:
#8-#10 are for friends only ;) Check my flickr if you’re a friend :)
#11: Various mingling. Clint explains to Britt that it’s recording, not broadcasting. Aaron starts playing with the camera around 2m50s. At 3m18s, you can see the software recording the party, and AE’s ex-girlfriend Tracy:
#12: At 2m10s, the camera gets shoved down somebody’s pants:
#13: John’s going dooowwwwn! Kipp, don’t encourage him! Things get interesting around 6m20s, when Jesse tells Carolyn, “John’s fucked up”, and Carolyn grabs his bottle, swigs it, then walks away with it. John The Candien looks disconcerted. “Noooo… Not the bottle!” Funny stuff :) But then look at 7m40s — Kipp picks John up and moves him to the couch that he later puked on. He got up, but for all I know he moved back to the couch at 11m30s because he didn’t want to be picked up again. And who picks somebody up anyway? Nice instincts (sarcasm) on everybody except Carolyn’s part:
#14: John is now out, and girls decide to put makeup on him:
#15: Finally, he pukes. But a cup was put in front of the camera, so you can really only see how people react to the whole thing:
#16: We all miss Samhain the cat, who made a brief 1-minute appearance before running away:
#17: Webcam voiceovers. Possibly the funniest on-camera moments:
#18: And then the webcam “optical illusion” of swallowing a huge cam (short):
#19: And another quick-but-funny voiceover:
And that’s how we rolled in 2002!
