Camcorder came today, but I still don't have my IEEE 1394 cable that I bummed off of eBay. Damnit...
The camcorder seems pretty cool, it's a ZR70MC. A tad grainy indoors, but what the fuck, it was $500.00. I need to get a tripod and bigger memory card for it, though. I hope I didn't damage it by pointing it at my huge blacklight... =x_x= Meh, it seems to be fine. I'm always so anal-retentive about this shit.
I'm going to try and go to sleep, but I know I'll spend hours dreaming about her before I do... Ah... *heart flutter.*
Reluctantly off teh spoke.
Yesterday was my birthday, yay! I got:
Monty Python's "The Meaning of Life"
A t shirt
So, a few friends came over, we left and went into town for a few hours. We saw these two black kids peeping around a corner outside the movie rental place. My friend asked them "what are you waiting for?" and they just giggled and ran behind the building. Moments later, when we were in the building, we saw people running. We ran outside and found at that the two black kids hand jumped a white kid on a bicycle and beat him up. =o_O=
Other than that, I haven't done much. I saw some ch1x0rs at the local Sonic, got a few hugs (a rare occurrence) and went back home and watched Ninja Scroll. Mbleh... now I'm researching camcorders yet again. Off teh spoke.
Good for me. Eh... and I just got "married" to PK_Kitty! Mrrrowl... =^_^=
I guess my IBM Thinkpad R40 will do for now, it's pretty cool. Anyway, I've narrowed my research down to three camcorders:
All three are pretty much in my price range, with the JVC being the cheapest ($370.00 US at Amazon), the Canon being the midrange ($400.00 US at Amazon), and the Panasonic being the most expensive. ($450.00 US at Amazon)
I still dunno what to do. The Panasonic doesn't have the greatest zoom, but I don't really see why I need that much (except for my constant pyrotechnic shananigans). The Panasonic seems to have the best night shot mode (for it has a LED help lamp), form factor, and it looks really cool.
I don't know about the ZR65MC. I've heard it had crap for low-light, which is something I was going to be filming alot. However, it is the most popular, and not that expensive...
Haven't really checked on the JVC, but so far it seems pretty good, decent night shot, and it's the least expensive. I hate to say it, but I think I may have to do MORE RESEARCH!
God I hate researching... anyways, I'll be going to a friends house again tonight, I guess we might just drive around and piss people off as usual. As of now, Kedsy is off teh spoke.
Bored as fuck now. I think I'll go have fun with PK_Kitty. =^_^=
I am off teh spoke as of now. Oh, and my new custom rank is "Insensitive Clod." Wonder if any ZUers are also
KEDSY IS ON TEH SPOKE
Aaaanyway, Friday I went over to my friends house... we were extremely bored until we found that his lame little digital camcorder could take little audioless 30 second clips. Well, things kinda happened, and we ended up making a 6 minute movie with the clips... =-_-=
The credis are half the movie. =^_o=
Anyway, we put some strange music to it, it's pretty cool, but I need to do better. I'm currently considering getting a DV cam, I think I found a pretty good one, but I'm not sure about it. It has crap for nightshot, which I was kinda planning on using. However, I can't really find a camera with IR nightshot that isn't like 800 fuckin' bucks. The one I'm looking at is around $420.00. Here are some, um, links for it.
Eh... I really don't know what to do yet... =~_o=
Got some new music at my friends house, too. CKY, Flogging Molly, Bob Marley, and some more Local H...
That's about it for now... I think I'll go research some MORE! =>_=
By the way, here are some pictures of my ugly mug I took at my friend's house:
Excuse the armpit hair... =O_o=
Anyway... off to do more shitty school and maybe download more Hellsing.
Kedsy is off teh spoke as of now.
Eh, nevermind. Just testing to see how this
