How geeky was I?

For the past few weeks, with the help of MyGica CapIt device, I've been digitizing old videocassette tapes that have been sitting in boxes for years. 

I found this recording I did back in 1995 as part of a video message to a penpal I met through Star Trek Communicator--there is a backstory regarding this, which I'll elaborate further in a future post. Before Youtube, the only cost effective way to send a video message was by recording and delivering a VHS tape by mail.

The video starts with an overview of my room. You'll notice my dog, Puppy, on my bed at the beginning of the film. I go on to show my collection of Star Trek action figures [excuse my mispronounced vocabulary], posters, and other collectables around my room. I also show my Star Trek TNG bridge playset--total geek.

Not so geeky? How about Star Wars and Star Trek ships hanging from the ceiling. Or how about screen savers of Star Trek on the computer?

But hey, a boys room wouldn't be complete if it didn't have posters of hot girls. The hot model at the time was Cindy Crawford, and I had plenty of posters and magazine cutouts of her taped on my wall.

Ohh, that's awesome!!! I've always wanted to do that, but haven't had the time. Maybe I should make time...

Have a great weekend!
