Quick Video: Interview With A Young Self

Deb: First of all, the foresight of this young man blows my mind. I wonder, did he forget about it for years and rediscover it, or was he waiting until just the right amount of years had gone by? These kinds of things always blow the creativity of the human mind out of the water! Enjoy and put on your own thinking caps. It got me to thinking I can tell you.

  1. "Are all your questions going to be about pets?"

    "Yes."

    "Then the answer is they're all dead."

    God, I laughed so hard at that!!! This is so awesome, and, yeah, I can't believe the planning and patience that went into it. Really clever stuff. Alas, I never thought to do anything nearly that imaginative!

    1. This is one of those pieces Roz, that make me marvel at the creativity that exists in human beings. The fact that I young boy thought of this idea and followed through, is great.

  7. Deb~ Have you seen the "7 Up Series Documentary 1964"?
    ITS brilliant!! We watched them back to back one weekend. I think you would LoVe them.
    I took this from YouTube. :)


    "The Up Series is a series of documentary films produced by Granada Television that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. The documentary has had eight episodes spanning 49 years and the documentary has been broadcast on both ITV and BBC. In a 2005 Channel 4 programme, the series topped the list of The 50 Greatest Documentaries.

    The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future. Every seven years, the director, Michael Apted, films new material from as many of the fourteen as he can get to participate. The purpose is also stated at the beginning of "7 Up," as, "Why do we bring these children together? Because we want to get a glimpse of England in the year 2000. The union leader and the business executive of the year 2000 are now 7 years old."

    1. Yes Seana I have seen it and it is wonderful. Sad toward the end as they lost some of the kids. One from suicide I think. But it is fascinating!!!

  8. OMG !! This is SOOOOO AMAZING!!! LOL I guess only a Whovian (like myself :D) would understand what the "DON'T BLINK...just kidding, you'll know what it means in a few years" means! LMAO!
    This is so awesome..
    And Deb ya know the funny part... I was thinking about an episode of "DOCTOR WHO" in which a similar thing occurred... and then he asked "Do you still watch Dr.Who?" and "DON'T BLINK!"... AND I KNEW... this was inspired by that episode. how cool is that ?????? I'll link that video if you guys are interested!

  9. That is so interesting. This is something that I think would be great for anyone to do, just to be able to see and hear yourself as you were. Amazing!

    Oh, and...

    I watched both epis of Trust Us on hulu. Squeeeeeee!!!

    1. Serena Williams is SO PRETTY. Wow. She is GORGEOUS. Stunning! I couldn't stop staring at her.

    2. The sideways games! LOLOLOLOLOL FFFFUUUNNNNNNYYY!!!!!!!!! On the Serena Williams one, I busted out laughing that the guys actually got a sort-of volley going with the ball. Nicely done! Although, like some others have commented above, ACK! Colin's back! When he and Jonathan Mangum were being in a car in the Osbournes one and Colin was getting squooshed, I cringed! Be careful!

    3. So nice to see that Colin doesn't always get stuck being the girl every single time anymore! LOL

    4. Princess Wayne! LOLOLOLOL

    5. The game with the bell and the horn and Jack Osbourne was funny.

    6. The rapping. That was just so wrong. *groaning chuckle* Oh man, those men rapping is just plain weird! (But, the good kind of weird. Maybe.)

    7. The whole time I was watching Fred Willard moderate, I kept thinking about his hilariously stupid, mutant, crazy commentary in Best in Show! :) LOL

    8. Wayne breaking the piggy banks! LOLOLOLOL

    9. Colin's Elvis and Jerry Springer character. I about fell off the couch.

    10. Jonathan Mangum is such a CUTIE!!!

    p.s. Don't blink! Blink and you're dead!

    1. I watched both eps the other night too!! I haven't laughed so hard in such a long time.

      "IF I DON'T HAVE A PIGGY BANK, AIN'T NO ONE HAVE A PIGGY BANK!"

      I missed funny, decent TV. :D

    2. I watched them too! They were great!

      I was totally with you on number 2, I was sitting there like, "Please get off, Jonathan. Please get off. I'm not sure I knew that Colin has something with his back but I was worried that he stopped talking until Jonathan was off.

      Oh and I also loved Greg's shirt =3

    4. my parents and I were watching the Wimbledon tennis tournament on BBC TV in the hospital . when Serena Williams won the women single and doubles (she played the doubles with her sister Venus) after she won the women's single she gave a really good post match interview . i was really impressed with her . sane with on trust us with your life she seemed to have a better sense of humour then jack or Kelly Osbourne .

      by the way I will be thinking of Colin as Elvis when I need a laugh in times to come . it is up there with Colin playing a velociraptor playing the banjo in one of the games on Drew Carey's improvagnza !

    5. Aimee -

    6. Ha! So agree! It was so funny, because #3 crossed my mind while I was watching it!

    7. Oh! Almost forgot to mention the funniest part of the sideways games! I BUSTED OUT LAUGHING when Colin went all Nightcrawler in the Osbournes one.

  12. That's sooo cool and funny. I love making videos...(I do a stop motion course for uni right, and I'm alreay obsessed with it - sorry)

    I think he did a really awesome job. I don't know if he planned on doing this (but he sounds like a clever / creative guy, so maybe his younger self wanted to do this...and he just waited to be older), or if he found that tape and played with it...

    Oh, and Doctor Who is haunting me...I really need to start watching. *lol*

  13. I love that his younger self wanted this and I can't imagine having the foresight can you? Incredible to me this guy.

  14. here is some rambling thought i had after watching the film .

    I loved that film . it must have been so hard for him to keep that tape for 20 years and stop it form getting lost or damaged .

    it is amazing to think the differences in my life from the time i was 12 , in 1987 , until today .wow there are so many .

    here is a question for you guys though . if you could go back and talk to your 12 year old self would you warn her to change your younger self would make as she got older ( god I hope this makes sense . ) my answer is no I wouldn't . despite all the bad things that happened me and because of the good things I am who I am today . i am far from perfect but i believe i am doing OK . there are changes i would like to make to myself but i think that changing my past might change my future too much . i can only deal with changing the present .

    1. Such an interesting question. I think the only thing I would say to my 12 year old self is to appreciate my grandmother because, well, I would only have 8 more years with her. I would also warn myself about stressing and tell myself to just have faith and all will be well.
      Great, thought-provoking question!

    2. I guess I would. I made some really stupid decisions. Of course, I don't know how my life would have been, if I hadn't made them...

      But I just think, it would have been easier, if I had done things differently.

      And yes...life is so different now then it was back in the 80s.

  15. Linda I would love to say that I would not warn myself. Hmmmm. I am torn. But I have to be honest. There are things I would change. REALLY GOOD QUESTION. I am going to think on it.

  16. Internet went crazy today :( Can't get to the video yet but I heard about it on the news. It seems really neat for a 12 year old to have such an idea.

  17. Maybe we should all do videos now...and see what happens with them in 20 years (my guess: we can't open them...because of advanced technology *lol*).
