The River City Rascals would like to invite your faculty and students out to Education Day at the ballpark on May 8th!  Attached in the image on the left is more information about the game, including a great deal for $6 seats anywhere in the ballpark and our $4 food vouchers.  Also, don’t miss the chance to meet vendors attending the game such as D.A.R.E., Museum of Transportation, and Serengeti Steve a.k.a. the reptile guy.

Also, don’t miss out on Opening Weekend May 15th and May 16th when the Rascals take on the Normal Cornbelters!  Both games start at 6:35 pm, but make sure to get there early for a magnet schedule giveaway.  Special appearances will be made throughout the weekend, including the Budweiser Clydesdales on Friday, May 15th and Fredbird on Saturday, May 16th!

This is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the end of another great school year, so make sure to come out and enjoy a game!

One Second Everyday 2014

During the course of 2014 I recorded one second of my life everyday for the entire year. This included some happy memories and also some sad. Seconds of my kids laughing, seconds of them crying. There are seconds of just about everything. I recorded all of the clips on my iPhone 5c except a few seconds which were shot on a GoPro. I edited everything together using Sony Vegas 11. It was a fantastic project and one that I am continuing into 2015.

I got the idea to do this project from Cesar Kuriyama who did a Ted Talk in 2012. His talk was very inspiring to me and I recommend checking it out if you have a few minutes.

Cesar created his own app to make recording your own one second video extremely easy. While I don’t use his app, but instead use my own method to create my video you are still more than welcomed to visit 1secondeveryday.com to find out more about his app.

So here is my final result. The music in the video is The Winner by DeVotchKa, which was featured on the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack. I had to edit the track to make it a little longer but it is still beautiful all the same. If you decide to make your own video please share it in the comments below!
