Summer is upon us now, and it’s stupid hot outside. It was 36 degrees recently, and it’s nasty humid outside. So gross! There are some days we get all prepped and ready to go and then we step outside, hiss at the sunlight, and slither back into our dark house and murmer to ourselves and edit. But some days we overcome the heat and brave it outside. And it’s supposedly going to get hotter and nastier according to what our friends say so I think this will be one of the last posts we write before we die. Thank you for watching, everyone. Next time you see us we will be a puddle.
To combat the stupidly hot heat, we wanted to try some Japanese Ice Cream from convenience stores. We can’t try them all because there are so many, and the video would be hours long, and we’d get sick, and after 10 we’d be groggy and would feel poopy, so we limited it to just a few. And, hell, filming out in this heat SUCKS. Martina gave up by the end. Hell, even our camera gave up. Our fruit bar segment just stopped filming. Same with another video we filmed outside today. The camera just says “nah this is ridiculous” and stops recording. And we keep on talking to a dead camera like dummies.
I gotta say, I wasn’t as disappointed as I thought I’d be. I thought, it’s a convenience store, it’s cheap, it’s probably not the best ice cream, but most of it was actually more than passably good. Except for the Coolish. Maybe some people like it but it didn’t jive with us at all. Everything else, though, was pretty solid. OH EXCEPT FOR THE LOTTE BALLS. Those just sucked. We’ve had Pino before (Pinot? I don’t remember how to spell it). They sell at convenience stores and supermarkets as well, and they’re literally the same things as the Lotte Balls but with not gross ice cream. But otherwise, the Azuki bean ice cream stuff I thought was going to be really gross and slimy and sticky, but it was so great. SO GREAT! And the fruit bar, also great! That waffle thing with ice cream in the middle, SO GREAT AND SMART! That made me happy :D
Apart from the heat, though, I really love filming in our park. We’re not great at cinematography or anything, but having that temple in the background was just gorgeous, in my eyes. So much of the park looks great on camera, and in real life as well. I’d like to film there everyday, thanks! If only we can stop the annoying Cicada buzzing in the background. We really need to figure out how to be better at audio.
So that’s it for this week! Next week we’ll have another video filmed in the park, also a fun one, and it’ll have DOGGIES! I won’t say too much. My lips are sealed. For now, let’s leave this video with some extra scenes, if you feel like watching them :D
