    Nice to see a young person with film cameras, but....I think he thinks he's Rod Serling.

    I bet his first camera didn't have film in it. What is hack? I thought that's only for software tinkering and all the stuff he did has nothing to do with software or firmware.

    I have the same haircut, but reversed. I don't even a clipper for the top :D

    In popular net-culture, hack refers to any clever trick that makes your life easier.

    was waiting for some sort of industr1al reverb disco backbeat...

    and watched the vide0 with no devotion

    I'm at the point where I'm not sure when to get a haircut. I found out when it tickles my ears time to visit the shears.

    I do believe that those of us who are used to looking to books and manuals and in-person instruction to answer "how-to" questions are having trouble adjusting to a world where people look to the internet and video to answer everything.
    The existence of "hacks" like this is probably a good thing for many who are new to film, even if the lighter fluid suggestion really grates.
