'Twas the night before Final Cut X-Mas
on Jun 21, 2011 at 3:16:00 am

Twas the night before Final Cut X-mas, when all through the Post House
Not an editor was stirring, not even a Weiss,
The 12 cores all hummed with the App Store a-loading,
in hopes that Mister Biscardi, was wrong with his OMF foreboding

AJA and BlackMagic, were nestled all snug in their webs,
While visions of non-destructive editing, danced in their heads,
And my Shih-Tzu Mia in her kerchief, and I in my Battlestar Galactica cap,
Had just settled our brains, for a night of Netflixian rap

When out on the the Cow there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my PapaSan, so see what was the matter,
Away to the imac I flew like HTML5 (screw flash!)
Tore open Safari, and quickkeyed the X -Forum

The moon on the breast of the new fallen code,
Gave the lustre of mid-day to the website below,
When what to my wondering eyes should show,
but a hyperlink, and a whole new Final Cut Pro

With a little old driver, with glasses and bobs,
I knew in a moment it must be Steve Jobs
More rapid than eagles the programs they came,
And he whistled and shouted, and called out their names,

"Now Soundtrack! Now, Color! Now Motion and Compressor!
On Final Cut X, On QuickTime and all of the lesser"
To the top of the download que, to the top of the App store charts!
Now download away, let's hear the macs start!"

He spoke not a word, for the last 2 whole months,
and filled all the edit bays, I felt like a dunce.
And laying a finger aside of his nose,
and giving a nod, to my credit card he rose!

He sprang to Cupertino, to his team he gave a token,
And away they all flew, like my plugins a-broken.
But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight.
"Shut your stupid mouth about Final Cut Pro X, it's only a program for Chrissakes."

[John Davidson] "Was it that bad?"

I think you should get a prize for that John, so I'm sending my assistant over first thing in the morning with a few gold stars for you.
