The Traffic Lights Are Out To Get Me

My friend recently posted this on facebook, “When you’re in a freakin’ rush, all the damn traffic lights seems to be going against you!  Arggg!!”

Which is both funny and true at the same time.

I think the main reason you feel it is going against you is because you want so badly for it to be green.

The longer it takes to be green, the more you feel it is resisting your wants.

The reality of the situation is that the traffic light neither likes or dislikes you.   It isn’t purposely going against you today, just to annoy you.

It’s actually very fair.  The moment it goes against you, it’s actually allow someone else to go.  And the moment it allows you to go, it’s going against someone else who is in a rush by giving them the red light.

We just feel victimized in that moment, because we are trying so hard to get to our destination and only notice all these stupid obstacles (red lights) in our way.

There are many ways around getting frustrated at red lights …

  1. Plan accordingly.  If you’re not late, why would you rush?  Give yourself some extra time.  Know yourself.  If you always come 10 mins late, next time why not leave 10 mins earlier to counteract your 10 mins lateness.  What’s wrong with being there early?  Oh yeah, you have to wait for them.  Then what’s wrong with waiting for them?  You feel like time is wasted?  If they aren’t important enough for you to wait for them, perhaps you shouldn’t even be there in the first place.
  2. Don’t Rush.  Sh*t happens I know and you can’t plan for everything.  Still don’t rush.  I mean, do all you can, but in the end … everyone is known to be late one time or another.  Sometimes when you are rushing, it actually causes you to be more late … Such as speeding and getting a ticket.  Or running a red light and getting into a car accident.  Getting their on time isn’t worth risking your life.
  3. Reschedule.  People are understanding.  People make mistakes.  People have a calendar with tons of free space.  You could be in the next open slot.  I’d rather reschedule then waste my time waiting for you stuck in traffic … again!

New Video: Think Like A Dog

Just posted a video of me playing a dog.

I came up with the concept for this after doing a bunch of “Shit … Says” Videos (Shit Beliebers Say, Shit Drunk Girls Says).  I was thinking it’d be funny to see what a Dog would really say to us, if they could talk and we could understand.

My favorite part of the video would definitely be the belly rub.  I could never understand why dogs seemed to love that so much.  It’s like they are super-sensitive down there.  In the video I equated the dog belly rub to the best feelings humans can have: sex.  Hopefully it doesn’t offend any dog lovers out there … :).

The hardest thing about making this video is always being on all fours.  Human body were never made to be on all fours all the time.  I noticed my knees being soft and tender mid way through the shoot.  I tried once to run on all fours like a dog.  Bad idea!

I changed the title from “Shit Dogs Says” to “Think Like A Dog” because last Friday a new movie came out called “Think Like A Man” with Kevin Hart.

I thought it would be great to promote my video as an unofficial sequel to the movie.  I was trying to piggy back on all the popularity from the #1 video during its opening weekend.

We’ll see how many more views that little stunt will give me.

I recorded more then I could chew off, so expect a second video when I get around to producing it.

Equipment used:

  1. Camera:  Canon 3ti
  2. Lens: Canon 18-135mm efs f/3.5-5.6
  3. Audio:  Rode VideoMic Pro
  4. Editing:  Adobe Premiere CS5
