Canadians, as you probably know, are known around the world for having 3 very distinctly Canadian qualities. We are polite, we don’t make a fuss, and we’re made up of 98% maple syrup and 2% sarcasm. You can reverse those percentages in a lot of cases. You can reverse those percentages in the case of me.
So when last September each and every Canadian across the land came together in the largest revolt this country has seen since The Great Cable Rate Rebellion of ’95, I knew I had problems. Canadians were being impolite. And they were making a FUSS.
The day was September 14th. It was a seasonal 23° and other than people’s heads randomly exploding over the US Presidential race, things were pretty normal. At midnight, as is often the case, I published a post that was very generously sponsored by Legacybox and included a discount on their services for The Art of Doing Stuff readers.
That was. The beginning. Of the revolt.
You see, at that point I was helping Legacybox figure out how to open up their business to Canada by acting as a guinea pig for them. We worked together to sort out glitches in customs and shipping so that when they finally expanded into Canada things would run smoothly for their customers.
Only problem was, at the time of publishing my blog, Legacybox was still in the testing phase so Canadians couldn’t take advantage of their service or their discount.
Boos and hisses came pouring into my Facebook page and blog post. Canadians were chanting and marching in the streets in a grassroots movement that culminated with someone actually giving me the globally recognized sign for disgust … the raspberry sound. All because they thought I was shunning my fellow Canadians by having a post about something that Canadians couldn’t take advantage of.
That made me sad.
Not as sad as I was in this slide that Legacybox transferred for me, but darn sad. I’m pretty sure I was upset by the blue velvet wallpaper. And yes, that’s the beauty of Legacybox. You can watch all your videos or look at all your old slides and pictures on your big television.
Legacybox spent a long time making sure their debut into Canada would be glitch-free. 6 months in fact. They waited to open the service to you until everything was perfect for my fellow Canadians.
Everything, my fellow Canadians, is now perfect.
Which means you too can use Legacybox to transfer all those cassettes you have. Or the 8mm film, or those audio tapes that … well you don’t even know what format they are … they’re old and weird. Video tapes, photos … anything that you can look at, watch or listen to can be formatted, transferred and put onto a DVD or flash drive for you.
You just pick whatever sized package you want online, they send you a prepaid box to put all your stuff in, you label your stuff with their handy barcoded labels, mail it back to them and within a few weeks they send you all your originals back plus everything neatly transferred onto a handy DVD or flash drive.
Then you can sit around in YOUR living room looking at a photo of you looking sad about velvet wallpaper. Or whatever the case may be.
AND Legacybox is also giving a discount to anyone who wants to order right now.
First 50 readers to click HERE and use my code STUFF will get 40% off their Legacybox.
Plus consolidating your photos, videos etc. onto one teeny little device means you’re getting a head start on Spring cleaning and therefore, by default, get to have an ice cream cone as a reward. So ….
