I may take up making a short subject about the abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike tunnels (like Sideling Hill, used in "The Road") as my first little filmmaking project with the HC cam. I need to get a new mountain bike, too, to do that. I don't know how I would get it uploaded to YouTube if it's that big in meg. But I think something like this, however unusual, would be of widespread interest and would get lots of traffic. I want to get to this by March, when it warms up.
Also, somehow the brand name "Handycam" makes me think of "handyman", the idea of paying your dues in the workplace.
