Welcome To Our World

Our neighbors have noticed the camera crews. The local news station has noticed. The local paper has noticed. And we are ready to tell you all about our side of the Japanese Reality TV story... just as soon as the show airs in Japan on April 3rd.

In the meantime, we thought we'd give you more of the Dale Price Family Story. Our side of the story. And boy, does Dale have stories. Last fall we made a little video about ourselves and the craziness, but I never posted it. Now that we've spent days with our lives under the scrutiny of cameras, we realize there will be no secrets. Not that we had any, but at least we had a little privacy. 

Today I posted this video about our family on youtube. It's pretty long. If you get past the boring part of Dale and me talking about ourselves (awkward, feel free to skip from 2:51 to 6:00), I think it shows a side of Rain that doesn't come across in the tv and radio interviews he's done. He's really a funny kid. I've posted an excerpt with the last 90 seconds of the video here:

We've also started a podcast. When I started the blog, Dale said, "what's a blog?" When I suggested we do a podcast, I got a similar reaction. As a runner, I listen to podcasts all the time. When my friends can't run with me, my podcasts can. For those of you who are new to the idea, it's like broadcasting your own radio show. It's simply a recording that others can listen to on their computer, mp3 player, or other digital audio device. We are now listed in the iTunes store (for free!), or you can listen right from our blog. We start off a little rough, but I think Dale and Jeff are getting the hang of it. Jeff is a friend and neighbor that we invited to join with us on the podcasts, partly because it's a lot more fun to share stories with friends who haven't heard them all before, and because Jeff makes us laugh, too. This podcast isn't so much about waving at the bus--although we do have some fun reading and discussing comments that have been left on the blog and facebook pages. This is about us. This is about the life stories that have made us who we are. Which is why we call it "Behind the Wave." Even if nobody wants to listen, at least our kids will have a wonderful audio history of their dad's life. Feel free to listen, feel free to comment, and we hope you smile and enjoy!
