March 9, 1998
I checked in with Nice Shoes this afternoon, and they told me that Ed had
succeeded in getting my changes onto the D2 without punching any holes
in the sound track, and that I could come pick up the tape. This
gave me pause, because I had still had one additional fix I wanted to make
when we had our technical breakdown on Thursday
night--I had been expecting that we'd resume our session where we left
off. I thought about it and decided that going to the expense of
scheduling another session for this one tiny glitch would be silly, and
so I just picked up the tape and paid Nice Shoes their $268.75 plus tax.
(From what I could here in the noisy room where they showed me the changes,
the edit was completely smooth.) But the unfixed problem bugged me
anyway. I've spent a lot of energy keeping myself in perfectionist
mode for the last two years--it's hard to switch gears at the end and make
concessions left and right.
