  2. Hi Tina,

    It was my first experiment with sound. Glad you enjoyed it.

    The group is called Weezer.
    Love the song and it seemed a nice fit for the old Edison film.
    I plan on shooting my own videos and slide shows this summer of our beloved shore and will post with music
    Cheers
    Emil

  9. Good job! If I can figure out how to get it onto my computer, I have a movie of the construction and opening of Manasquan Inlet. It was shot in 1931 by Arch Johnson (owner of Johnson's Hardware in Pt. Beach, and he also narrates it. Prior to the opening of the inlet my Great Uncle Warren Mason was one of the first four charter boats to operate out of Brielle. My father worked on the boats, as did I, and there are some great stories that I need to get tape before my Dad croaks! I'll work on the film and get it up as soon as I can.

  11. I really like that song. At the first two or three notes of it, I had trepidation, then fell right into it! Love it, and since I have very early ties to A.C. (well, not THAT early lol), it kinda put a tear to my eye. A.C. was really great once on its own. All they needed was people back then.

    i love the music and the fact that the film is so old..the 2 blend together so well...history repeating itself

  16. The music is good. Not just because it makes me think of the Laura Ingraham Show, but because it adds a certain contemporary flavor to the work of Edison (was just up to his facility a few weeks ago).

  17. Nice work, for sure. Anything from further north, like Point Pleasant???
