Other Than Stefan’s Beard, Nothing Much Has Changed


It took a very long timeƒfour years, to be preciseƒbefore I sat down to ponder how to turn VHS tapes into digital files. Using more cables than Western Union, I finally turned a series of videos taken at our wedding into something vaguely watchable. It’s 15 minutes long and includes The Play. You’ll see some not-so-seemless editing as the color lurches from one person’s camera to another, for which you will have to forgive me; and because I still haven’t grasped the fundamentals of video compression, here are three versions to chose from, depending on the oomph of your computer and the speed of your Internet connection:

  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large.
  • (You’ll need Quicktime.)

    Weather (Oregon)


    Late night and early morning low clouds with a chance of fog, chance of showers into the afternoon, with variable high cloudiness and gusty winds, gusty winds at times around the corner of Sunset and Alvorado; things are tough all over.
