So, I'm either at the half-way point, or ...

if I have a limited life-span, I'm a lot closer to the end than I'd like to think! (EEEK!)

Oh well, I'll enjoy my traditional meal of a whole Dungeness crab (with hot butter), and pull out some of my favorite films, of course!

Fifty is a situational kind of birthday:

If you are generally content with the way your life has shaped up, it's actually pretty nice!

Mine was, I hope yours is too, Osi!

Ones life, is a bit like a single frame of film, but running through a projector at 24 frames per second. [Big Grin]

Great link to that video and thank you for all the well wishes.

I was disappointed yesterday, however, my crab had been in the freezer too long (freezer burn ...yuck!), and my lamp blew out on my CHINON 9500!! (GRRR!)

Besides that ... a great day! [Smile]

That does drive my curiosity though, as Betamax always had better picture quality then the best VHS (well, that is, the early VHS, later VHS near the end of it's run was actually pretty good), but that is something I wish I could bid on.
