When I was 14: JD

Being 14 was weird for most people. The other night, I videoed some of my friends talking about being 14. I'm going to run each of their responses here for the next week. First up, JD talks about owning Nintendo Web sites and how he ruined a friendship:

Testing ...

A few weeks ago, I bought a depth-of-field adapter, hoping to make my videos look more cinematic. Last night, Aaron and I played around with it (it is super tricky). Here’s our test shot (we were also testing mics).

A story of mine is running in the paper today. This kid is so amazing:


Most people want to be different from their parents -- more patient, less annoying -- but Noe Araujo wants more than that: He wants to become like the men who put his father in jail.

Araujo was 8 when his dad was arrested and eventually deported for selling methamphetamine. Now he's 18, dark-eyed and serious, and unlike most high school seniors, he knows exactly who he wants to be.

The Parkrose High School student has avoided nearly everything that teenagers usually do. He doesn't drink or party. He's never skipped class. In his free time, he is interning with the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.

Yeah, he gets lonely, but he's been lonely his entire life. At least now, he hopes, he'll have something to show for it.

Also, here's a video I made of him (I posted a draft earlier, but this is much better):
