Laser light show

8 06 2008

We attended the light show last night at Stone Mountain Park for the Last Big Group Thing with Ash. As I am going to Vancouver tomorrow, I will not see her again before she moves. Here is a clip from the show. It was very hot and humid and the picnic was great, with hoagies and chips and everything you can possibly imagine. Tons of leftovers to nurse. Seriously, if only it didn’t feel like 105 degrees outside (and heavy humidity) everything would be perfect.

Nothing Else Matters

17 05 2008

I cross-posted the video from Vimeo to Flickr and now I’m sending it back to WordPress, since wordpressdotcom hates Flash embeds. This was a great show last week at the Masquerade, and my first time going there. The band is playing string metal. Here, the encore features a Metallica cover. Too bad I was sick and running a bit of a fever, as they had no air conditioning. I felt sort of like I was going to pass out, and my brainz were on fire. Oh well, it was a good time.

videoGoofy video that I put together… experimenting with the Mac’s built-in music editor. Wait til I’m on MTV.





Flickr allows video posts!

12 04 2008

peeps test video on flickr And this is what I do with it… it’s not easy to embed, though. The code I grabbed showed up as a white space. I had to just grab the thumbnail and link to the video, which is the old way of doing things…

I like this feature though, in terms of my own personal use. It’s helpful for those times when you have good photos and video but the vids don’t stand on their own. YouTube, it’s not, and it’s not trying to be. (Here’s the other mini-peeps-production)

The story behind this video? It’s an outtake from Monty Peeps and the Holy Grail. I started working on it over my “spring break” in the PHX but didn’t do much with it. I filmed the parts up to approaching the cute bunny, but I haven’t finished filming the elements featuring the bloody battle.

The yellow Peep chick is the bunny, and the purple thing is actually a lavender-colored peep. I stuck a straw in its side to serve as a sword, and the paper stuck through the straw is a “shield.” It’s kind of a hack job, but I thought it was kind of amusing.

I tried to put it together with Windows Movie Maker on my old PC that remains at the parents’ house, but the stop-motion segments combined with the video were too much for it and the whole thing kept freezing up. I’m wondering if iMovie will handle this any better. (I’m now a Mac user; hell hath frozen over. I love my speedy, agile little MacBook. It even runs Second Life. I’ve never seen a PC that could do that, other than a Dell XPS upstairs at work.)





Car fire!

9 04 2008

Car fire!I shot some pics of a car fire out by the Wal-Mart Supercenter at 51st Avenue and Indian School Road when I was out with the fam in West Phoenix last week. It was a pretty random thing. I feel like I’ve been taking a lot of pictures, what with the recent tornado incident back here in the ATL. Yeah, that tornado was an amazing feat of natural havoc.
