A couple of years back I bought a Sony DVD camcorder. Loved it, took it everywhere. I have a whole stack of movies from all the big gay cruises and big gay road trips. You want see Steve knock over an entire bottle rum? I’ve got it on video.
I’ve been toying with starting a video web series, some stupid videofilms* to post on YouTube. I'll explain more when I get a handle on the whole idea, for now you can check out this. Just video it, edit out the swear words and post it to YouTube. No biggie right? Wrong, the expensive Sony cam doesn’t have firewire capability, nor does my Mac want to have anything to do with the files. Nope. iMovie won’t even entertain the thought. Y'all know how to convert a VOB file?
Here’s my solution. I've decided to heed President Obama's call to stop the recession by shopping. I’m going to go buy a cute little Flip video camara. It’s so damn cute and shiny! Anyone care for a Sony doorstop?
*Yes, I know that "videofilm" is incorrect. It just reminds me of Home Movies.
