I have recovered the tape.
Option 1: I know of someone with a miniDV camcorder. He says it may need a new battery.
Option 2: I could go to the local pawn shop to see if there is a cheap one there. But what can I afford?
Once the footage has been captured, I'll take the stills and hang them around my room for inspiration.
And a-one, a-two, a-one, two, three days...
