Cinderblocks and videotape

VIDEOTAPED the basement today.

No, this is not conceptual art. I'm redoing the basement as a home theatre, and the architect, who is in another state, wants a videotape of the existing construction. So I borrowed a camcorder from a colleague and ran around the basement, filming. Had this terrible urge to go stand in the corner...

Just kidding. The camcorder is digital, and I had the devil of a time transferring the video from the digital tape to a regular ole' VHS tape. The camcorder has an S-video Out jack, but my lame VCR deck only has composite in so after a bunch of false starts, I ended up running the signal through a TV that has S-video in and composite out... but it worked.
