    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.

    somehow made a time machine and got stuck in it and
    was waiting for some sort of industr1al reverb disco backbeat...

    i acutally turned t he volume down
    and watched the vide0 with no devotion
    in the background it was great !

    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.
