Digitized Memory

The camera is so badly damaged by the multiple times I dropped it and the abuse from the vibration in the van that some of the footage is coming out terribly distorted. This is part of the reason why I didn't buy a better camera for the trip, knowing it would be junk upon my return. Or maybe this is what happens when you tape over previous footage. Maybe it's the tape's fault that it appears a highway is running through my head. This is a good example of being too dumb to talk myself out of going to Labrador with a broken camcorder to find the arctic wolf and video the whole thing...and make a movie from the footage. I almost feel the jaded cowards were right and I was better off crimping fiber optic cables and watching life pass me by on the 8 o'clock news.
I may have to wait until I get a whole new camera to capture it to my computer. This is crazy. Really, I need a minidv tape deck so I don't use the camera as  vcr. I'll put that on the wishlist with self esteem and a job and an apartment and a servo gasket for the tranny.
Gros Morne Fjord. I should've jumped when I had the chance.
