    I should add, be glad you weren’t a gay teen in the Chicago burbs in the 80’s. Being openly gay wasn’t even an option and straight kids got bullied for even seeming gay.

    Q1: Yes, you can do that. Only caveat is that you can't switch between System Frequencies (59.94hz, 50hz, 24hz). You have to switch that setting in the menu, and turn the camera off and on. However,...

    I share some of your feelings. The worst fate for any creative isn't being thought of as a bad artist, but having your art be totally ignored, and in today's entertainment glut that outcome feels...

    I don't consider that a forgone conclusion. Plenty of people succeed without losing their creative identity. Sure, once you "make it big", you have to deal with corporate suits and their imperative,...
