Never one to pass up the chance to win a Stratocaster autographed by Pete, I dug out the the very first video I ever filmed with my GE 1CVC4030E. That camera/recorder ended up being a pain to carry around--not to mention I got tired of being behind the camera instead of in front of it. (I ended up selling it to the hapless George Allen--despite my impassioned disclaimer regarding the system's drawbacks--too bad for you, George!)

Anywho, when I slipped the 25 year-old VHS tape into my player, it was immediately eaten and mangled almost beyond recovery. After multiple repair attempts, I was able to salvage some of the footage and edited this brief clip for submission to's "Windmill Contest".

Wish me luck.
