If you’ve got about 4 and a half minutes and have seen any pictures of ours since about September 2007, take a look at this. You might catch a fleeting glimpse of yourself or someone you know.

My Pummelvision from Cliff 1976 on Vimeo.

Pummelvision made this video for me at Vimeo based on images from my flickr photostream. I think it’s pretty neat. Just three steps:

1. I created a free account at Vimeo, and gave Pummelvision permission to use it.

2. I told Pummelvision to go check out my flickr photostream and make the Vimeo video.

3. Then I waited about a day for an email to arrive notifying me that the video is complete.

Details on the entire process are at pummelvision.com, but there’s really nothing more to it than that. In future versions you might be able to customize the music or select sets or collections for pummeling, but at the moment it’s one-size-fits-all.

    Wow! That was fun! It is sort of like one of those Psychology memory/culture tests which prove that you retain what is already familiar to you. And it includes a little motion sickness to make the trip real.

    Dad says your music should be “I’ve Been Everywhere!” when you can make your own selection.

    Nice! I like that it often took a slight pause on your goofy self portraits in the bathroom mirrors!

      Heh — wish I could take credit for that.

    Way cool!

    I recognized Weimar, Erfurt, and myself.

    It’s amazing how much you’ve done in all that time. It’s impressive to watch.

      Thanks Adam!

      We stayed put a little more in 2010, or at least revisited places familiar to us already, but that will change somewhat in 2011. Maybe I’ll have to do another one of these things again then.
