Cambodia (in stills)

A ~2 minute glimpse of a recent trip to Cambodia. All portrait shots were cropped –– ergo a bunch of these might not be framed as well as they ought to be.

Eight Years of Memories

Football clubs are not built on trophies alone. They are built on tradition, class, proper fans, and most importantly, memories – all of which Arsenal has in abundance. These last eight years might not have brought us any trophies, but they sure as hell brought us memories – and that counts for a lot.

Music Used: “That Home” performed by The Cinematic Orchestra.

Update:

The video went up late on Friday night here in Los Angeles and it was watched over 65,000 times by the end of the weekend, with 20,000 hits through Facebook and 12,000 through Twitter through 4300 tweets (via Topsy).

This were the all-time view stats as of Monday, 1 July 2013 at 6:15pm PST.

My Twitter account was, according to TrendsMap, first trending in London, and then in the entire United Kingdom.

101 Great Goals, Myles Palmer’s Arsenal News Review, Gooners’ Outlet,Arsenation, GoonersWorld, Sportskeeda and the Arsenal Sports Blog all featured the video by Sunday.

The video was also shared by Rob Kelly (reporter at Arsenal.com), Martin Kemp, Alex Brooker, former Arsenal player Adrian Clarke, and ex-Arsenal player/legend Lee Dixon.

Someone also happened to copy the video, add new music and publish the same video on YouTube with the same description as well – which I found a bit amusing. The comments section was eventually taken down and the video itself was made private.

My video also managed to top the Gunners sub-reddit for a certain period of time, with over 300 upvotes.

I was also tweeted by a Manchester United fan and a Tottenham Hotspur fan who both said they enjoyed a video which, essentially is about Arsenal’s trophyless years – and that is probably the best set of compliments I could ever ask for.
