Murray's Super 8


A few nights ago, when Murray and I were staring at three (four?) different super 8 video cameras strewn all over our bed, I said, "How much did these cost again?" Murray reminded me that they ranged from $5-$20 each, and that's much less than I spend on various splurges on a regular basis. And that these cameras bring Murray an overwhelming sense of happiness.

That was enough to convince me that they were good purchases, because who am I to get in the way of Murray's overwhelming sense of happiness?

And I was even more convinced when I got to see Murray today, looking really hot with his suit (that he wore on our wedding day---swoon!), his hip messenger bag (that I gave to him as a gift), his Murray's Superior Hairstyling Pomade (which, he's happy to discover, is his new favorite hair product and costs under $2 instead of over $15), and super 8 video camera. He's going off to shoot Nicole Hill's wedding today, and I can truly say that if he shoots half as good as he looks, he'll have a fine career of super 8 wedding videography ahead of him.

(First day of shooting pictures taken by ME.)

Where does he find cameras for that cheap?

Ebay, of course! You have to remember though that this is an outdated technology. First of all, you don't know for sure if the camera is going to work. Second of all, you have to buy FILM for the camera, which is not cheap at all, and then you have to pay for the developing of the film, which is also not cheap. So basically, the only cheap part is the camera itself.

I bet if Murray stood beside the road and pointed that at cars, there would be some sudden slowing!

What happened to all of your links?

While I was on foreign exchange to Chile, back in high school, I became hopelessly addicted to Super 8 candy bars. Except we called them Super Ocho, even though it was written with a figure 8.
