Didn't paint yesterday and felt like avoiding other activities so I repainted two of my first paintings today, the one above and the canonette. I'll be repainting at least the first five of my cameras as these were done with less guidance and I'm rather embarrassed of them.
The Independents film screening this week featured 16 and 8mm works by Kyle Whitehead of Calgary including a film performance in which he edited a film loop (super-8) while it was running. Tonal sound was responding to the image using an arduino device.

First thing in the morning I broke a tooth eating a biscotti. It was a multiple filled tooth so Dr. Kristy told me to prepare to get a crown but that she'd try to fix it one more time. Patch seems to be holding.

William, Allan and I went to a great version of Talkies tonight with Jayden and Jennifer talking over the 1971 Canadian hockey film "Face Off". Having recently seen the documentary about Robert Evans (producer of such films as "Love Story") I was the only one to catch the foreshadowing of the tragic ending in the lingering shot of someone reading the Love Story novel in one scene. Spoiler: the girl dies suddenly at the end. Crazy conversations about it. Fun.

from Lee Valley Tools for William for his computer to facilitate his changed posture. It is heavy and lacked good installation instructions. Whatever the fault, it basically broke off the desk today, being held on with four one inch screws. The main plate also has a central hole so I've bolted it to his desk. It is strong enough now, but there is a bolt sticking through the tabletop (not a big deal as I built this table myself out of plywood and will probably replace it at some point).
