Cutting and editing...

...And changing my mind and unchanging my mind and unbreaking my heart and teaching myself yet another set of skills and wondering and eating pizza and all kinds of shit like that.

Yeah, I'm finally making it real. Yesterday morning I didn't know the first thing about cutting or editing digital video (or anything else about post-production), but today I'm coming along. And I like it this way.

Remember the introduction I was talking about? Yeah, well it's coming together, and I've already cut out most of the words from the transcription. I may put it all right back in tomorrow. And then I may take it right back out. But no matter what I do, it's giving me valuable experience. Learning by doing is what made me good at the things I do well. Oh, and being my own toughest critic helps, too.

Well, all I wanted to say is that Quasi-Aimless has moved from the spreadsheet and into the Final Cut. I'll probably be very busy working on this for a while, so don't expect a lot of blogging in the near future.

One last thing... I'm thinking I'd like to ingest peyote alone in the desert sometime in the next year. Not that it's any of your business or anything. If I do, I'll make sure to get some good footage of me tripping.
