Normally for my dad's birthday I like to send him a card that features a glittery Sponge Bob or a Maya Angelou poem about how Sunday service is always sweeter when you're black, but this year we decided to deviate from tradition. By harnessing the power of a camera, Final Cut Pro, the internet, and a dash of procrastination, we were able to send him a new kind of birthday wish.
I'm not sure who amongst our readership will be able to sit through over three minutes of just baby faces and noises. But I figure the grandpa who actually tried to make silly faces at his grandson over a web cam in an attempt to elicit a reaction might actually enjoy this.
So this one's for you, Dad!
