Representing Deustchland

(no subject)

Barring any unforeseen expenses, like a new pair of glasses (April) or a tune for the VW (likely May), I'm at least five or six months from getting the SLR rig I've got my heart set on. The good news is that I'm likely to have it when I head to Arizona in November. The bad news is that if I go this route, I could be without a camera until I head to Arizona in November. Since I'm not relishing going through the summer and fall with nothing better than a VGA cam-phone, I've been tossing around the possibility of dropping $150 on a new-to-me Canon G3 or G5. It would be a temporary measure that would allow me to keep using the accessories I already own, and once I scored the 30d I could re-eBay or come up with an elaborate reason why I should keep it.

I'm also thinking that I should get my hands in some clay again. I've access to MassArt through some crazy tuition reimbursement scheme, and it's really time I started taking advantage of that instead of doing the "so not cool enough" dance. I can't say I've got the drive/talent/vision to go pro, but that hardly matters. Throwing puts my head in a good place. I'm not sure I need a better excuse than that.
