“This Is Gloucester” DVD Review From A Biased FOB Linda Colman

Hi Joey!

Here’s my review of your “This Is Gloucester” DVD.  I’ve watched it twice.  First time was the day I received it in the mail.  Since I’m your target audience I decided to watch it a second time with one of my BFF’s, Judy, who’s never been to Gloucester and has never seen the blog.  Not being an FOB like myself, I figured she’d be able to provide the objective viewpoint that I lack since I’m a lover of Gloucester and a rah rah fan of GMG. I’m biased for sure.

Let me begin by saying that the DVD cover is really cool.  Beth Swan has a great eye for design and did a fantastic job.  Appealing right away.  Beginning the DVD with “Gloucester at Dawn” and the beautiful music was a great way to set the tone and my friend Judy said she didn’t know Gloucester was such a beautiful place.  BOOM!

I imagine that deciding what to include and what to leave out of the DVD from all the GMG material must have been the hardest part of making it. I don’t know how you managed to do it, but you wound up with a really well balanced presentation of the essence of Gloucester- the beauty of the place, the fishing industry, the history, festivals and the passionate people who call it home.  A really great mix.

The only trouble I had with the DVD, and believe me I realize that this is totally personal (although Judy had the same reaction), was the appearance of the “Rare Golden Sea Robin”.  I remember seeing it on the blog and it was bad enough looking at that thing on my laptop, but on my big TV screen?  Yikes!! I can see how it might be a big deal to land one of these horrifying creatures but it’s a TERRIBLE thing to look at.  Judy gasped, covered her eyes and I had to tell her when it was over so she could keep watching.  Just when we were regaining our composure, THERE IT WAS AGAIN!!!  It made an unannounced and unexpected second appearance after “The Back Shore” chapter!!  At that moment Judy fled from the room and wouldn’t watch any more.

The people chapters (as opposed to the creature chapters) appealed to me the most. I enjoyed “Building the Greasy Pole Shrine” because of the obvious passion of the people involved in its construction, “Salting Herring At Cape Seafoods” because… well I don’t know, I just liked watching it… and the “St Joseph Novena” chapters that finished off the DVD were the best.  The people who live in Gloucester truly love their city and it shows!  

So there’s my review, Joey.  It’s yours to do with as you please.  Run it on the blog, trash it completely, edit it as you see fit, whatever.  Oh, one more thing.  I think an introduction by you at the very beginning would have been great.

Thanks a million for putting the DVD together!  Linda

BTW right now Amazon has a great deal on memory cards.  For a 32GB Class 10 SD Card for only $19.99.

Considering Apple charges you an extra hundred dollars for a jump up from a 16GB iPad to a 32GB iPad, that’s a great deal.

Imagine that, SD card storage is THAT cheap that you can buy two times the amount of storage that comes on a stock iPad for less than $20.  Anyway if you’re buying a camera it’s always good to have a couple extra SD cards so you can leave one in your computer to edit your photos off of and rotate in your spare to the camera so when you leave the house with the camera in a hurry you don’t pound yourself in the head when you get to that birthday party because you left the memory stick in the computer.  I always rotate mine and have a stick in my computer and swap it out on the spot with the memory stick that was in the camera.

Anyway here’s the deal if you want one (they’re normally $32)-

Oscar Messes Up Some Little Rat’s Evening and a Cat vs Rat Poll

I don’t know how he does it without claws.  I guess cats are just quicker than rats.  Either that or he’s just relentlessly going for the kills all day long and every once in a while gets lucky.

Guess we may as well poll it.
