What Video Camera Should I Get For Recording Family Interviews?

Looking for a recommendation of a video camera (and anything else necessary like external microphone etc) that is inexpensive but good enough that I won't regret not spending more money. If I could spend $200 that would be great, but if you tell me I'll kick myself for not spending $300 then I can do that. [more inside]

Can you help me identify movies about exercise?

Can you help me identify movies about exercise? About working out, exercise trends, aerobics, jazzercise, etc. Sort of in the vein of this SNL skit. To clarify, I am NOT looking for instructional videos [unless they are really funny or bizarre], documentaries are okay, but mostly I would like suggestions of movies...about exercising.

Name That Video: Surreal animated interview between student and master.

Looking for a video I saw on the internet before May 2008. It was an interview with a ton of post-processing, making it very surreal. Seeing this image reminded me of the video. I seem to remember the interviewer was an art student, or a student of the interviewee. The interviewee had been down on his luck, and it seemed as if the interview was happening in a soup kitchen or hostel. I associate two words with the interviewee: "video art", but I can't think of any sort of title he might have. [more inside]
