Yeah, but Ralph Eck (who I think is still a colorist over at Digital Image
or whatever they're now calling the old Compact Video) remembers the time
around 1978 when a full 3000' 35mm feed reel fell off the top of a Simplex
projector in the middle of a transfer -- I had forgotten to snap the
hold-down clamp on tight -- and hit me right smack on the head.

Embarrassing and painful.

I haven't been the same since.
