@Craig_Harvey I see where you’re going with this, and you should probably stop right now.

@jkerrison Don’t get me started, Kerro, or you’ll be in deep shit.

I just saw someone use the phrase “internet mom”. A mother who uses the internet? That’s 90% of western mothers. So just say “mother”.

@indigoid @cefiar @NewtonMark @stils_laptopYep All to be filmed. Pure oxygen sprayed into the thing, well, aluminium burns BRIGHT.

via TweetDeck in reply to indigoid

@smperris Also, Sony has a series of cheaper camcorders with X/Y mic. Forget the details, but they’ll be easy to find.

@OaaSvc Well, I think @snare is overseas, so I choose to assume that it was just my USB cable-wiggling.
