Starting The Month On A Sour Note
Some love it. Some hate it. But One Take Only returns for a fourth season. If you’ve never watched one of our episodes – it is essentially two old coots sitting in my backyard talking racing. John McLallen and I are co-workers who share the bond of IndyCar racing. John was my best man when Susan and I married at IMS in 2012. It’s hard to tell sometimes, but we get along very well. However, this episode is in two parts because John talked too much and we ran about thirty seconds too far over to You Tube’s liking. Part Two starts immediately after Part One finishes.
There is no script and there are no notes. We don’t discuss what we’re going to talk about beforehand. We just start the camera and begin talking. It is also completely unedited. We do one take and that’s it, hence the name. Whatever we get, we get – for example; the bug that kept flying in my face from the moment we started, causing me to look like I’m on the verge of having a seizure. The result? Well, some actually enjoy it to the point that they ask for more. Others have begged me to stop doing these altogether. My thinking is that if you don’t like them, don’t watch them – just come back the next day.
By the way, speaking of the next day – tomorrow, I’ll have the sixth annual Oilpressure.com Indianapolis 500 Trivia contest – so be sure and check it out. As for the video, watch it at your own risk.
