A Big Project

So Nefarious and I have undertaken the project of recording the entire 870 page reading of The Order of the the Phoenix on 720p video via our new Flip UltraHD. Today was the first day of doing so, and there was only one minor snag, in which the battery (which I guess did not come fully charged) died half way through the first chapter. We “solved” that problem by swapping the batteries and playing a game of cards with the red light on, and we re-told and acted out what happened as we played.

I had told Nefarious that one day perhaps she could show this video to her kids, if she has some, so she took a moment to talk to the future — “Hello children, I am your mother!” and a hilarious monologue telling them all about herself and me. How wonderful it will be for the future’s parents to be able to share such artifacts with their descendants… We move slowly toward the dissolution of the sequential nature of time, and experientially hop around as if it was just another dimension for us to explore.

PS. Famous person I most resemble? Yes, that would be Rasputin.

    OK, so how do you store your memorables?

    CD, flash drive, external? What do you do for an attempt at longevity?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
