I was at the Barbican yesterday, where I happened to spot some ducks casually strolling among the crowd of people enjoying the sun on the Lakeside Terrace. I thought they were kind of cute - the ducks, I mean, not the people! - so I shot a bit of video of them on my phone and edited it in Final Cut Pro.

Thanks to Dynix for bringing this to my attention. The BBC has come up with an ingeniously addictive way for us all to waste our lives: editing clips from Doctor Who into thirty second trailers.
 
Though I had never edited video before, I made my first trailer yesterday afternoon, have made two others since, and wouldn't be at all surprised if by this time next week, I'd made a hundred of the blasted things. Good-bye work, good-bye personal relationships, good-bye life -- I have fallen into a black hole of making trailers for Doctor Who. 
 
Here is the site that will suck you into that bottomless pit from which there is no escape:
 
 
Here is the link to the trailer Dynix made, which got this ugly new addiction of mine started:
 
 
 
Here are the three I've made so far:

I'm editing this a couple of hours later. Since posting the above, I've made a fourth (curse you, my damned addiction!):
