Q: Why haven't you made a video in like forever?

I had a lot of fun making videos early last year, posting a couple of dozen little films on YouTube, but for months I've done nothing new. The reasons for this (besides being super-busy inventing cool new games) have been technological. I suffered a massive setback last summer when my hard drive crashed (just as I was about to back it up, of course), and then, after I'd finally gotten back onto the video-making horse again, my camera started malfunctioning.

The camera in question is a Sony Digital Handycam which uses 8mm videotapes. The problem is minor -- audio dropouts during playback -- and I think a good head cleaning is all it requires. I've even had problems like this in the past and been able to fix them with the use of a cleaning cassette. But I've tried a couple of those now and they haven't done the trick. So I think at this point I need to find an electronics repair shop that can give my trusty old camera a good professional cleaning.

The problem with that is, I don't know of such a place in my city (College Park MD). Anyone got any recommendations for me?
