Leaderfoot Bridge Poem

Posted on March 6, 2009 at 4:30pm 1 Comment

The river runs from west to east

roads south to north

from bank to bank three bridges span

three centuries worth

before these the fly-boat Brae

led down to its ferry

near the ghost-line of the Roman way

on the outward journey

Salmon sandstone pillars rise

above Leaderfoot

the meeting of two singing streams

by leafy Ravenswood

builders pay attention to the piers

so the arch can spring

taking you far from what you see

It's been a while since I popped in to The Ark, as well, but when I saw the Videolympic challenge, I figured it was a great raison d'art to get out the video camera. It should be fun, so I hope you get to make a vid or two. Tea sounds great...

Okay, if I got this right, I can post Videolympic challenges and offer the booty of my choice to the winner. How one wins and who makes that decision is a mystery to me; who am I supposed to bribe? I don't see anything in the rules against shotgunning multiple challenges, so here's my semi-officially-worded challenge:

I challenge you to be my opponent in Videolympics #1!

For any and every challenge listed below that you accept and I lose, I'll give you your choice of a) one official Canadian Toonie (which costs 16 cents to make and is worth 2 dollars US), or b) I'll post a vlog on The Ark about any subject of your choice.

More details at:

I challenge you to any or all of the following Videolympic missions:

1. Show us what's in your purse or your wallet.
3. Show us how you created a piece of origami, but do it "artfully"
5. Show us some items that you're embarrassed about owning.
7. You're a vlogger and it's the year 2099.
9. Make a video with the title "Ten Things I Hate About...."
12. Edit a scene with you & another Arkian so that it feels like you're both in the same room.
14. Fly
17. Do a time-lapsed video (using your own footage).
18. Create a stop-motion video (using your own footage).
19. Attempt a special effect that's simple but impressive
20. Do something funny with yourself and a green screen
24. Interact with an animated character.
27. Write an original song and perform it as an edited music video

Interested? We have 5 weeks left before the Closing Ceremonies. GO!
