I DID IT!
I changed the tape. Pressed stop and yanked out that crap, predictable film. I was bloody tired of watching her go upstairs so to speak. My brain said ENOUGH.
Unfortunately, this is the only tape I have. So now I’m sort of looking at a blank screen which is a bit unnerving. Some might see this as an opportunity to make my own shiny new film, and they would be correct. The problem is where to begin? I’m going to need some time to think about it.
Off I go to write about the Comisión para el Esclarecimiento Histórico (Guatemalan truth commission).
*a note: for those of you who are thinking to yourselves “VHS?” I say that’s right, VHS. This is a 25 year old film and DVD didn’t exist.

>Oh, what about Beta tapes?? When were those around? We they pre 80s?
>70s i think. :P
>Should the film be in colour…or black and white? Foreign subtitles or dubbed? So many decisions.BTW – the torpedo I used to blow away my profs research is coming back to kick me in the behind. Looks like my original thesis topic will have to be redone. :( I don’t know how the hell anybody gets through this.
>denise, oh that sucks. sorry to hear that. my own research is apparently “brave” and “ambitious”. in all other areas of life that’s a good thing. in thesis-ing…not so much.excessive drinking perhaps? i’m really not sure. :S
>oh yes, and full out colour for the most part although there is a 7 year chunk of black and white with subtitles

>Hey Angela, it’s Dave.Your constant requests to visit your site have worked! It’s stylish… and, most importantly, it’s all about you!!!I must say, I’m quite proud that after all my lectures on open source software, web development, etc. etc. you are finally taking steps toward tech geekdom — even if it in the low form of blogging. (kidding, you’ll have me blogging soon enough, I’m sure… we definitely have a relationship of mutual influence.) Now, the next step s are to get you interested in intellectual property law, Keith Jarrett, and Brad Mehldau. Muahahaha.Anyway, you’re cool and the best friend I could wish for.Love always,-David Mhttp://davedev.com/
