How to Make a Cookus Interruptus Video

Surprising how many ingredients are needed!  May seem difficult to blend at first, but the finished product is worth the trouble.

1 coffee shop for brain storming
15 cups Seattle coffee or tea, divided
2 yellow legal pads
1 director
2 cameras
2 cameramen
1 lighting package
1 set of sound recording equipment
1 sound man
1 make-up person (to get the dark circles from under Cynthia’s eyes)
2 food prep mistresses
Lot of food
5 performers (if they were to get paid)
1 kitchen location rental
4 external hard drives
1 computer for editing
1 software program for editing video
12 months web hosting fees
2 web designers

1. Take one coffee shop for brainstorming.  Add 5 or more of the 15 cups of coffee or tea to people present.  Note results on yellow legal pads.

2. Gather all equipment, crew, food and performers.  Place in kitchen location rental and mix well many times over and over.  Don’t be afraid to improvise.  Use remaining cups of coffee or tea if needed.  Do not worry if mixtures do not seem perfect.  That is part of the recipe’s charm.  

3. Remove mixtures and place in hard drives.  Extract even portions into computer and chop fine with editing software.

4. Place carefully into web hosting domain.  Season if necessary with web designers and serve to public.

Our family will be contributing - your books have been life changing. Any chance we could buy the Quinoa song as a ringtone?

Why is it that people who say they would do anything for you, usually can't?
