Here's a shout out to AAMI! This week we received the full payout from the recent burglary. Today we picked up the replacement video camera and I pushed in the only video cassette left behind, one I thought was blank. I pressed play and guess what? It's got Xmas. It's for all of my footage from Xmas eve up until the burglary. The funny thing is that the little "save" latch on the tape wasn't pressed over to "save" - it was still on "record". Now, the first thing I do when I remove a full tape from the camera is to press the "save" latch to prevent it getting recorded over. So I'm thinking the thief took the time to remove the cassette from my video camera and left it on the floor. Wow.
I also splurged a bit today from my mid-year bonus - picked up a Waveterminal U24 Audio Interface and a pair of Sennheiser 212 pro headphones so I can finally improve the quality of the recording of the tracks I'm working on. Now all I need is the new PC - but that's next week's project.
