Tina Fey redux - SNL last night

Yes, and the drinking game winner goes to....

(I thought Wasilla would win) but I guess I'm no maverick.

I didn't realize Tina was quoting Sarah. Makes it even better.

I Love This Shot

Sometimes when I'm searching for video content for work, I stumble upon short pieces of video that don't fit in with my needs, but I love in any event. It is these moments that make me believe in the power of ugc.
Here's one very sci-fi clip of a new water slide in Orlando.

Pom Pom Animation to Lemon Jelly

I was looking for video for this Lemon Jelly track; instead I discovered this piece, done by a 20 year old student in Brighton. A true crafty narrative...perhaps the beginning of Etsy video!

And another piece, continuing my shoe obsession....

Objetsmart's Ozu Tribute Video

Words often fail me when it comes to the cinema of Ozu. Perhaps this is why I was so excited to find this piece while searching for something else...

A Bizarre Take on Film Piracy

I'm unsure how I feel about this new film commissioned for the upcoming Cairo International Film Festival, but technically, it was interesting enough that I'm putting it up here. Your thoughts?

Werewolf Bar Mitzvah

Join the wolfing clan...this ain't no dick in a box, the 2007 overboxed Halloween costume of the year, but I've always been fond of "boys becoming men/men becoming wolves..."

 

 

Thanks T!

Don't touch the vinyl

 

 

Today's New York Times features a tale of two turntables that transfer your vinyl into mp3s. Of course, the more aesthetically pleasing and audio phile one doesn't work with Macs. Instead, the review details how Mac users are restricted to the shiny Ion iTTUSb, a deck that looks like it was created to appeal to an aging trance fan who will wear his sunglasses as he converts records that should be melted quickly into mp3 format. I was always hopeful that one of the rare positives about the death of vinyl was that many of those simply rubbish records created throughout history and especially during the late 90s would languish and simply fade from memory.

I guess those product developers at Ion realized there was a market to keep these memories alive.  If they actually made a more aesthetically pleasing turntable that had a top to cover how ugly it is, perhaps I'd save my remarks.  But the lack of it just proves how flashy it is trying to be.  Then again, it seems apt that the Ion uses a software program called Audacity, because that is how I feel about the fact that so much energy will be spent preserving noxious tunes.

Rather I suggest perhaps Ion should just create a consumer version of the ultimate Objetsmart vinyl object: The ELP Laser turntable, a deck without a needle!

Simply, no needle, no wear.

Kind of like No Woman, No Cry.

Only problem is that the ELP costs $15,000.

Now that's audacious.
