Other than proofing some stories and fixing some layout crap-ola, there wasn't much going on today. I put in a few hours on the mag and then headed out on the road for a couple hours. To be honest, I craved more dirt, but some pretty good T-storms came though the area early this a.m. and I didn't feel like dealing with the Boyce. If I would have been able to ride later in the day, they probably would have been perfect, but I couldn't. So I didn't.
I mean the road was OK, but it's the road. And my legs just weren't that spanky, so my mind was even less spanky. But in the end it was a good ride in some nice sunshine and sweet temps. I could have done without more headwind and crosswinds slowing my girth down, but I'll take what I can get, when I can get it.
I took the new camera out on the road today. No I won't be doing anymore Les Stroud film projects, but I did take some random shots, iMovie them and put some muzak that I've been obsessed with lately on it.
That music has been The Cure. Sometimes I go MONTHS with no Cure. Then BAM! I can't stop! Bootlegs, live, studio out takes, singles, I can't get enough. I have a TON of Moz and Smitz stuff, but damn I seem to have a lot of Cure on the hard drive too!
Nothing special about the above pic of the Campeon, just more testing of the camera. Very impressed with the quality of the outside shots from the camera. This pic was not retouched in anyway, yet is very crisp and clear. The stills are only 5 mp. Just goes to show that mp has a LITTLE to do with a good digital image, but it's NOT everything. A good processor, etc., is also needed. Than again, the pic might be TOO clear. You can really see that I haven't washed the Campeon since about February (2009). I think my mountain bike is cleaner! LOL!
**BTW I had this post ready Thursday night. Vimeo wasn't loading the movie. YouTube was removing the audio and it was too long for Flickr. So because I REALLY felt the need to share sub part random shots of my road ride with the music I wanted, I waited until this morning to edit it down. Oh, how I suffer for my art.... (please note sarcasm in this paragraph. I assume you know, but I'm trying to cut down on the amount of folks that think I'm a total douche).
