Packing my gear... two bags full. One with weapons (three foils and three épées, assorted extra repair parts, body wires, replacement blades, 2 masks, two gloves, and uniform,) and one with clothes and toys for three days. I just finished making up a new batch of my 'Super Duper Mega Energy Bars' and put them in the fridge to harden up a bit and blend the flavors. Camera stuff is sorted and packed, 16 home-packaged tea bags packed, American Express Card, guitar picks (who knows? I might get lucky,) and an umbrella. I think I'm ready...
Over there, over there
Send the word, send the word over there
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming
The drums are rum-tumming everywhere

So prepare, say a prayer
Send the word, send the word to beware
We'll be over there, we're coming over
And we won't come back till it's over over there.

Next stop... Bangkok!

Good luck! We expect pictures! Never mind that you are 5 to 6 adventures behind in that department!

Uh... yeah... Well, about that.... See, I've been experimenting with my new video camera, which really is pretty easy to use. It's the back end that's causing me problems. Well, that and the videography too.

I'm able to capture, in stunning color, hours of boring footage.
I guess videographers know what to look for when they shoot. I don't.
Then there is the editing. I'm trying to learn how to use Adobe Premiere Pro, the video software that is to moving pictures as Adobe Photoshop is to still pictures. It ain't easy... So far I can get the cut and the pastes, and even the transitions, but I can't get the exposure and contrast correction part yet, nor slow down sections so they can be seen smoothly and long enough. (Remember, I'm shooting from a moving motorcycle.) It's coming, but it's coming slowly.

Between trying to learn the software, making electronic test boxes, modifying fencing weapons (I've been molding and casting lead counter-weights to fit the handles so as to change the balance point of my weapons,) playing guitar, playing ping pong with my wife, answering e-mails, and surfing all the best porn sites on the Internet, I just have so little free time these days... Now, this weekend is a lost cause, as I'll be away until Monday night, although I will be bringing a copy of Video Editing for Complete Idiots, or what ever the name is of the book I bought to read on the trip.

Patience is a virtue, they say. Of course, I always wondered why 'Hurry the F@#k Up!' isn't a virtue?

Don't look for me 'til you see me coming.

Watching a show called "Masters of Horror" and it's better than I thought it would be, not mind-blowing but okay !

Waiting for this week's There's No Such Thing As A Fish podcast to be uploaded. Normally I listen to it on Saturday night but I'm really in the mood for some fun facts tonight.

Procrastinating
again
I need to start packing, wash clothes, wash my hair (I can't find my comb). My room is still in summer mode and I can't get the window behind the cat condo down. It's probably in the mid 50's here

And this should probably go into the vent and rant thread. But I still can't find my comb
