Ha, ha, I got you! Your shoes aren't untied. They don't even have laces! They've got some kind of Velcro® and ratcheting closure system.
Also, so that my francophone readers can join in the fun, here's that entire prank again in French:
"Fait attention, votre chaussures sont champignons!"
Votre vie est un illusion grand.
("La poisson est mort.")
Et maintenant, c'est fini.
Wow, I'm really depressed now.
Now that we've gotten out of the way, I regret to tell you that circumstances once again dictate my furnishing you with something of a truncated post. You know, vicissitudes of life and all that. By way of a palliative, I had made two (2) videos for you yesterday using my Fly6 camera, both of which I was going to post today. One of these videos was me riding over the Brooklyn Bridge during the day, and the other was me riding over the Manhattan Bridge at night. See, the Brooklyn Bridge is old-timey and encrusted with tourists, and the Manhattan Bridge is industrial-looking and rumbly. It was all about artistic juxtaposition and mise-en-scène* and all that. Also, both videos were boring as Levi Leipheimer riding a neutralized Tour stage, but this is America, where ultimately quantity trumps quality.
*[I don't know what that is.]
ANYWAY, I went through all of the trouble of uploading and editing both of these boring-ass videos to a popular Internet video hosting website, only to have the aforementioned website totally mute the Brooklyn Bridge video because there's a Michael Jackson impersonator at the foot of the bridge and he's performing to the song "Beat It," which you can hear in the background:
I'm pretty sure incidental capture of a portion of a song being played by a street performer falls under "fair use," and I've disputed it because I have nothing better to do with my life, but in the meantime I'm inspired by the knowledge that our publicly-traded companies go to such great lengths to protect the copyrights of great Americans like Michael Jackson.
Presumably armed drones will be coming for the street performer next.
Of course, the Manhattan Bridge video at night is even more boring than the Brooklyn Bridge video, what with having no street performers in it and all, so here it is in all its soporific glory:
If nothing else, it shows that the Fly6 works passably at night.
ANYWAY, sorry to leave you while I flit hither and thither, but I'll be back tomorrow in all my soporific glory, and in the meantime be vigilant because it's April Fools and everything you read today is a lie. (Which, if you think about it, is no different than the rest of the year, when everything you read is a lie.)
I love you,
