TST - Captioning

True Story Tuesday - the day that's not Monday; the day when you can look back at Monday and laugh.  Head on over to Once Upon A Miracle to link up and laugh until you blow your morning coffee out of your nose.

Just for Rachel

I post a lot of videos between my eleventy million blogs and I've been trying to figure out how to caption them for Rachel.  Only, I'm not nearly smart enough to do it.  I think I know a way to do it using Windows Movie Maker, but it doesn't always recognize my Flip videos.  So, I tried to use YouTube's automatic video captioning.

And, well,  this is what it came up with for my Top Shot submission video (my comments in italics)...

headshots elephant (because that's the way to get the producer's attention - start with headshots)

and she can sense my early twenties (I don't know who "she" is, or how she can sense my early twenties)
and her friends (nor do I know who her friends are)
taught me how to choose (or what they taught me to choose)

just because it was fun

when three

you know

he could be the grates and parking

gave me a few instructions told me not to

expect too much

said that should be breaks

unity dot and i the extreme

and fell in love with steve (Steve?  I've never fallen in love with a Steve.)

ability do you want to show is that i have

to be seated our constructions never before

this time it never shuts the i'd never shot

any long-distance


when our with

which means

impressive to him

and so impressive to me because i had no clue

somebody who enjoy shooting at least like


i've never back down from a challenge i'd

never turned down a chance to shoot anyway

including the big elephant (to be clear, I've never actually shot an elephant)

case party admitted new lecture

but that's one of the reasons why i didn't

touch i don't have the additional pressures

and tough enough to do this

i hate was a single mom for twelve years raise

three kids worked three jobs and still manage

to get an auction one eighty

sitting once stress-free

and i had yet to pick up a weapon that i haven't

fallen in love (Now, that part's true.  I haven't found a weapon I haven't fallen in love with.)


the (End.  The end.)
Well, Rachel, I tried.  And I just have one question - does the automatic YouTube captioner-thingy madohickey have its mind in the gutter or what?  I'm almost afraid to see what Mr. Daddy has to say about this.


Mrs Mom said...

And Shannon is a little bit different? ROFLMAOPIP..... OMG.... And the stupid armenian... omg... you are trying to choke me with laughter here... !!!!

I watched the video while the captions were scrolling, and all I can say is


(Wide Tomato Flamingos)


Rachel said...

Okay - not only was that the best post, but dang you have the best commenters too!

I snorted through the captioning, then again from Mrs. Mom and Bill.

Now to be fair... you really should show the video and let people read the words with it - because I'm sure thats dadgum funny right there.

I'm afraid of what the stupid armenians will have to say about this.

But aww heck, let's go get passports and find some hairy fruit.

Dying... just dying. You are awesomesauce!
