1994: Two VCRs and a Patch Cable

In 1993 I rode a lot and I also video taped a lot. Though the weather in Medicine Hat allowed me to ride most of the year, I still needed something to do to fill the winter months. I Used two VCRs and started going through all my footage. I made a video. It wasn’t great, but I was happy with the result considering my resources and I had fun.

The next year I did more taping and even had more people to tape while I rode. The 1994 footage turned was edited into sections, but I never pieced it all together. I’ve captured the old VHS tapes and though the quality was never great, it has deteriorated in the past 11 years. If you’re expecting quality footage, you shouldn’t download this video, but if you want to see me fall into a puddle of water in the bottom of a emptied swimming pool, click the link below.

The music used for this clip is Brave Captain by “fIREHOSE”:http://www.hootpage.com/hoot_gallery-fhose.html.

    Why do you insist on riding on private/public property? The rails have paint scraped and planters and such get cement chips taken out of them. It is mischief (a criminal offence) and for the ‘peaceful’ guy you once claimed to be to me, this is a little bit of an oxymoron. Who pays for the clean-up when you riders are done?

    Get a life.

    I can feel bad about what I did 13 years ago, but I can’t undo it. I did slide that rail with my pegs, but they were also plastic coated pegs so they don’t chip the paint like metal ones do. Not that I need to justify past actions. I have to wonder if it isn’t a little ridiculous to say that I should not say that I am a peaceful person because I might have chipped some paint on a school’s handrail in 1993. I should add that I have never equated violence against people and violence against material objects as the same thing.

    The comment above was initially written by “Reader”, but since I looked at the originating IP address, I made my best guess. The comment came from a computer at the University of Regina. I know a few people that attend/work at the U of R, but only one is the likely “Reader”. She is actually a campus security guard and I’m guessing that campus violations are at an all-time low and the security mandate has been expanded to investigate cold cases. I understand that if I caused damage, I could be charged with criminal mischief charges, but surely the statute of limitations has expired by now.

    I see that you keep checking back (again log files and IP addresses). My guess is that you are looking for a reply, and I apologize that it has taken so long. I have been busy preparing report cards for my students and socializing with friends and family. As soon as I finish those items and leave this reply I will attempt to get a life.
