OK, OK time to lay out rule number one.

I know it's not the close up 70mm panoramic, surround-a-sound 3 dimensional hoop snake footage that you were looking forward to seeing. I know that it could be a hula hoop being thrown across the lawn. I also know that you think I'm an idiot for paying for the footage.
But when it is all said and done with the fact remains that this guy and his daughter had no reason to lie to me. The stuff was shot on 8mm. It does look old. I repeat, there was no reason for this guy to lie to me. It's not my fault that it's so boring!
For those of you that actually saw the quicktime footage all I can say is lucky you. Due to the number of hits and my basic lack of in depth HTML knowledge I can not keep the site from crashing when too many people access the footage. So I am being forced to take down the video and put up some stills from the original 8mm film. If you didn't see the footage then don't worry you ain't missing much. (although that girl is a jump roping maniac.)
In the what's new department, I just put up a series of stories dealing with poltergeist and things that go bump in the night. Those stories are up now so hold off from e-mailing me about the damn hoop snake for one second and go read 'em.
Also click here to go to the M and Z store page and order your very own "I accessed Derek's lousy web page and all I got was some crappy hoop snake footage" T-shirt. That's right boys and girls, a T-shirt based on the actual footage you can't see. Buy it now before I sell the rights to some huge movie company
