I transfer old VHS tapes, Hi8 tapes, and old film to dvd and digital for people. It's a decent side gig when I can get orders. The other day I threw a tape in and as soon as it played it was a little strange. It was teenagers, probably 18 -20 years old, smoking weed and driving around the streets of our town in 1996. I watched a little bit and it felt very much like I was watching a home made murder film. I stopped watching after a couple minutes. Then my roommate caught the screen as he walked past my room. He came in and asked what it was. I told him. But then I turned around and looked at the screen again and it was a new scene. Now it was just the teenager and his girlfriend in his bedroom. "Is this going to be a sex tape?" Brad asked. "Sure does look like it." I said. Well, sure enough, five minutes later it was that very thing. A sex tape. Very awkward. Very weird. Very funny.
The question was what do I do with it? Do I not record it to the DVD? Do I tell the guy when I hand the tapes back to him, "hey this tape is your son and his girlfriend having sex 20 years ago?" It's a very odd situation. I ended up writing "Matt and Friends (caution)". I think that gets the point across without having to have an awkward conversation.
Don't annoy the bride on her wedding day. It's a really simple concept that some people can't seem to go along with. Last weekend I filmed a wedding. It was on a Sunday. A football Sunday. The Raiders game was on and one of the groomsmen deemed it his duty to give the entire bridal party the play by play during photos. Every couple minutes. "Raiders scored!" "First down Crabtree!" "9 yard run!". Every time he made an announcement the bride was visibly annoyed. She just wanted to get her pictures done. Have the twenty person bridal party and both sides of the family organized and ready for photos. And mostly she wanted the attention on her during her wedding. People kept telling the kid to shut up but he was getting joy out of being the annoying person. Now listen, I love annoying people. Especially my sisters. Getting on peoples nerves can be really fun. I used to throw a small pillow at my sisters then tell them they had two options. Throw the small pillow back so I could throw it at them again. Or keep the small pillow then I would throw a bigger pillow at them. Super fun game for me. Terrible game for them. With that being said, I didn't annoy Courtney at all on her wedding day because it's her wedding day. It's the one day that the bride and groom should have no one annoying them or stealing the shine.
My coworker walked in my office on wednesday and asked me if I wanted a cookie pizza sundae. I asked her what that was and she said it was a half cooked cookie in the shape of a pizza with ice cream and toppings on top. Huge trap. I obviously said, yeah slip me one. It showed up and was as advertized. A giant cookie with ice cream and toppings on top of it. I ate half of it then spent the rest of the work day fighting off shitting my pants and being sick.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
