What is it about that woman? When you see her just standing around she's, um, attractiveness-challenged. But when she's playing, she's.....mesmerizing, especially live. I found myself just gawking at her, even though that boy she plays with can fucking shred and has a hat full of magnetism in his own right.

Women are more attractive when they're being, rather than just there to look at. That's my theory and I'm sticking with it.

It’s too bad they didn’t do the song, ha ha. But they did a darn good job with the voices.

It's funny you popped up in this thread, Mr. Needles, because I was thinking of you as I was reading about how he put all that together, and what a creative guy he is. He was talking about not knowing how to play the piano, so he just hit a bunch of keys and then when in and deleted the notes he didn't want.

Nex, I've already been to Candy Mountain, dude. You only get two kidneys, you know.

I just heard this about a week ago in a thread that someone had embedded this song and entered a bunch of java commands doing all kinds of weird shit, one of which was constantly changing the background color, which created a pretty trippy experience. Anyway, I was searching around youtube to find out more about the music, which led me to this link (http://fishki.net/comment.php?id=10109) from some people that obviously have had enough of it (click teh speaker icon).

The orginal thread (http://sensibleerection.com/entry.php/65247) possibly NSFW

I stand corrected. It's not scat at all. It's Finnish Folk Polka! Wheeeeeeee! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjvVBCNcL_A&mode=related&search=)

Ieva's Polka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ieva%27s_Polka)
The sound of a polka drifted from my neighbor's
and set my feet a-tapping oh!
Ieva's mother had her eye on her daughter but
Ieva she managed to fool her, you know.
'Cause who's going to listen to mother saying no
when we're all busy dancing to and fro!

Ieva was smiling, the fiddle it was wailing
as people crowded round to wish her luck.
Everyone was hot but it didn't seem to bother
the handsome young man, the dashing buck.
'Cause who's going to mind a drop of sweat
when he's all busy dancing to and fro!

Ieva's mother she shut herself away
in her own quiet room to hum a hymn.
Leaving our hero to have a spot of fun
in a neighbor's house when the lights are dim.
'Cause what does it matter what the old folks say
when you're all busy dancing to and fro!

When the music stopped then the real fun began
and that's when the laddie fooled around.
When he took her home, when the dancing was over
her mother angrily waiting they found.
But I said to her, Ieva, now don't you weep
and we'll soon be dancing to and fro!

I said to her mother now stop that noise
or I won't be responsible for what I do.
If you go quietly and stay in your room
you won't get hurt while your daughter I woo.
'Cause this fine laddie is a wild sort of guy
when he's all busy dancing to and fro!

One thing I tell you is you won't trap me,
no, you won't find me an easy catch.
Travel to the east and travel to the west but
Ieva and I are going to make a match.
'Cause this fine laddie ain't the bashful sort
when he's all busy dancing to and fro.

What I really hate the most about the subwoofer thing is that most of those shitbrains have the things cranked up way louder than they have the resolution to handle.  And what sounds less cool than a loud FUZZWUMP BRZRZCRAGGLE FUZZWUMP BLAHGHGH?  It sounds like an elephant being forced through a sieve, underwater. 

It's like they're shouting 'Hey, everyone!  I have a stereo that I paid too much for and don't know how to use, and I just wanted to annoy you with it!  I'm probably playing some kind of gangsta rap, probably because I dream that those rappers have huge genitals and I'm hoping for cock-by-association, but all music sounds the same when played through a sound system that's this badly operated!  It all sounds like a badly detuned one-string washbasin bass played by a four-year-old!'

Morons.  Makes me think of the first Gulf War (such as it was), when every night, at 2 AM, some jerkoff would run through campus shouting protest whatever through a megaphone . . . only he didn't know how to use the megaphone, and he sounded like Charlie Brown's teacher, at ten times the normal volume.  Dude, I don't know which side you were on, but you weren't making friends.  If I'd caught you, that megaphone would've been shoved somewhere that would've given you a whole new cause to protest.

No, I have right-on-the-edge sorta luck with the cops.  I can't afford to screw around too much -- gotta save it for when I really need it. 

Come to think of it, right now I have a billy club in the car (had it when I was housesitting) and a big knife (camping equipment) that's in a plastic bag along with a sleeping bag liner (which means it could be construed as a concealed weapon).  I better take that stuff out of the car tonight.

I wouldn't mind a little directional EMP generator, but I don't have one.  Seems unlikely that it'd tend to get traced back to me, if I only used it judiciously.

The difference is intent. If some asshole is trying to squash you, then yeah, the gloves come off.
Randomly tooling around and getting that close to people with a horn that can be heard for miles... not so cool. First cop that sees that shit going down is going to make the Rodney King spectacle look more like an overenthusiastic group hug.

I'll let you follow me to work on my bike someday through suburban Toronto. You'd be lucky if you could get the airhorn off before some jackass in a rolling two tonne phone booth levels you. hahahaha BUT - FTR - I have always used the ding-ding bell for pedestrians and the ear-splitter horn for the fuckfaces in the SUVs.

Mick's got huge balls. Thanks for posting that. I've never heard it, and I thought I had almost everything he/they did from that era. I guess I need to track down Metamorphosis.

There's a weird "related" video on that page - an old silent 8mm film of a Folsom street parade featuring Ozzy (I never saw him in it). The only way I can figure it's related is because it's from 1970.
Title: Re: a thread for sharing online video

I guess I need to track down Metamorphosis.

I have that song on the Performance (http://www.amazon.com/Performance-1970-Film-Jack-Nitzsche/dp/B000002LN5) sountrack. The version on Metamorphosis is performed by the Stones. I haven't heard it, but I can't imagine it's better than the soundtrack version. Ry Cooder -- c'mon!

Most of the rest of the album is not very interesting, but the 3 tracks that are make the CD worth owning. The other 2 tracks of note are:

"Gone Dead Train" by -- get this -- Randy Newman! And it absolutely rocks!

and

"Wake Up, Niggers" by The Last Poets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_Poets). Proto-hip-hop. A gem.

Amazon has listening samples.

Microsoft has made a very wise investment.

Quote
Using photos of oft-snapped subjects (like Notre Dame) scraped from around the Web, Photosynth (based on Seadragon technology) creates breathtaking multidimensional spaces with zoom and navigation features that outstrip all expectation. Its architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas, shows it off in this standing-ovation demo. Curious about that speck in corner? Dive into a freefall and watch as the speck becomes a gargoyle. With an unpleasant grimace. And an ant-sized chip in its lower left molar. "Perhaps the most amazing demo I've seen this year," wrote Ethan Zuckerman, after TED2007. Indeed, Photosynth might utterly transform the way we manipulate and experience digital images.

There was a NKITH skit where Dave Foley played some guy in a mansion, and in the door behind him were a bunch of monkeys - "mean-spirited monkeys" if I remember correctly.

Thank you, sir.

And now, some video of me kiteboarding.  This day started out with my 12 meter kite and I was barely powered up.  By the time I got back to the beach, I could barely hold it down.  I pumped up my 9 meter kite and went back out.  Again, I was underpowered when I first went out.  Later, I had to come in because the wind was too gusty.  It stops being fun when the gusts pick you up off the ground/surface of the water when you're not expecting it.

Any way, here's 2 helmet cam videos.  There's some pretty big (10-15ft) jumps in there, but you can't tell because... well, because.  That's why.

I really hate the online video viewer thing.  Personally, just let me download the file and then play it with the software of my choice, period.  But if not, then don't start playing it automatically.  I'll start it when I want to start it, and that way it can cache sufficiently to play properly.  Also, do not start playing automatically just because I paused and rewound it.  Or because I resized it.  You are not helping.

Software that thinks it knows what I want better than I do, and is wrong, is stupid software, especially if I can't tell it to cut that shit out.  Also, the VCR should not start playing a tape automatically just because I put it in the machine.  I'll damn well tell you when I want you to start. 

[grr]


That looks like a bad carnival ride, but they also have one that's basically that same thing except that one side has an extra length of lever arm to make it eccentric.  So it doesn't just flip over; it moves in a complicated unpredictable and uneven fashion.  I saw it once at the Big E, and, lord, did it make people barf and cause shoes to fly off into the distance.  What a bad idea.

That ride in the video, though, clearly goes on for far, far, far too long.

Quote
In Washington State, a researcher finds that a toxin given to rats still affects their offspring four generations later, without producing any changes in their genes. And in Sweden, a study of historical records seems to show that the lifespan of grandchildren is affected by their grandparents' access to food.

I didn't watch the whole episode, it started off kind of slow, and I got distracted, and then came back to it and saw the ending, but it's one of those moments where you realize science is on to something huge. If you're a parent, or plan to be, you should check it out. Even if you're not a parent, it might give you some insight into why you are the way you are.

While the lights were out, I've been watching The Punk Years (http://www.youtube.com/profile_videos?p=r&user=OceanSoul619&page=2) - an English documentary on the history of punk. It started off really interesting, but now I'm up to like the 4th episode or so and it's not quite as good as it started out. It started off as a time line type thing, talking about how one band influenced another, but the part I just got finished watching seemed to be getting a little off-track, jumping around. There's some really great footage though. Lots of commentary by Johnny Lydon - a little too much at times - he's such an asshole. But there was a part I was watching last night where he was defending God Save the Queen, saying it was not meant to be a negative statement about the queen, he was being very serious about it, and then he said "we love our queen" in that way that only he can do. Priceless.

holy CARP that's a voice

It's pretty damn good -- it's hard for guys to develop their 'head voice' that way, with a sharp nasal intonation and clean enunciation.  Most male falsetto tends to get rounded even when the tone is clear, even if it's strong, as much of 80s heavy metal demonstrated pretty nicely.  I noticed some of the comments described him as countertenor, but most of that was tenor / contralto range, I think.  He just sings it in the upper range, out of his chest, which is far more common in women than in men.

There are still countertenors out there, but the ones I've mostly heard generally train to emulate the old castrato sound, which doesn't sound like the Little Mermaid dude at all but sounds more like a female soprano or upper alto.

Still, nowadays those parts are usually done by female singers, for a variety of reasons.  I wonder how the Little Mermaid guy sounds when he sings a normal tenor or baritone.

I lived in a frat house. We shat in things, and threw shit at things (and people). We barfed, were barfed on and barfed on people. It's all natural. Gaping anuses however were off the menu.

Come to think of it I did see a gaping anus in residence in first year. I was sitting at my desk writing an essay and a high school buddy comes over and is standing in my doorway. He says 'Hey Watson, wanna see something?' so I turn around and he is bent over, shorts down and he is pulling his ass open.

So yeah - I have seen a gaping anus in real life, but it was in the dorms, not at the frat.

And poo and barf are totally natural. They come from your body. You're so hung up on this stuff man.    :nuts: :eyeroll:   ;) :P

Jeez, otherwise it sounds like a pretty normal frat.


I, for one, do not believe in the validity of the equation

    Natural = OK

Getting forcibly sodomized by a mandrill is perfectly natural, and so is having your face eaten by a hyena while you're still struggling, and so is malaria.  Pizza, electrically-powered sex toys, and boots are pretty unnatural.  I'm not an automatic booster of natural.

I'm not completely sold on organic, either, but it's not the same issue.

I favor rally type races. If I had the funds, I'd totally get a car and a navigator. (Imagine that job- barking out directions to a driver with piss-all for depth perception) The thing about rally races is that they tend to go awry, and badly - so the crash footage is kind of horrifying.

That said, this guy gets run over, but gets up and runs away afterward. The vehicle has a lot of clearance, so that obviously helped. Still. He got run the fuck over. And he got his ass up and cleared out. That's kind of hardcore.

Guessing that you might have been under a rock for the duration of the, oh, 1980's I will tell you. They are a little band out of Athens, GA called R.E.M.

The album that this (the original called Shiny Happy People) is off of has some lovely mandolin work on it (lovely to someone who knows absolutely nothing about that type of stuff except I think it sounds nice.) I don't think that anyone else was heavily featuring a mandolin in the late 80's early 90's.

If you want to hear the mandolin (in a really crappy format) try here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7vs21ZKrKM (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7vs21ZKrKM).

It is a wonderful video, groundbreaking for it's time. And to understand the song itself you need to understand that the phrase "Losing my Religion" is a very regional Southern colloquialism when describing swearing.

To whit: "Well Thelma put some kind of jalapeño in her pimento cheese and that kind of heresy makes me want to lose my religion"
Translation: I cannot believe that jumped up, blue haired old Yankee transplant had the F**king nerve to try and pass off that crappy assed velveeta abomination as pimento cheese."

Yeah...probably...  I backed off listening to top 40 stuff in  the "70'S".  I had an 8-track tape player in my "68" Chevy truck.  My high school friend and I used to barrel down the road listening to this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHj_fZG8-lU).

And I know this is going to be mucho obscure, but I think Peter Buck stole the idear to use mandolin from Paul Westerberg of the Replacements, because coincidentally on the song where he uses mandolins ("I Will Dare") is a song that features Peter Buck doing the guitar solo. A good five years before "Losing my Religion."

No, there isn't a video I can show you for demonstration. The funny thing about Replacements videos in the 1980s was that they eschewed the style and the two music videos of theirs I can think of are in black and white and feature just stereo speakers. With fancy camera angles...

Peter Buck also produced the Concrete Blonde album "Bloodletting" the same year as the REM album and one song "Darkening of the Light" has some nice mandolin on it...

Right, there were no videos whatsoever made for the "Let It Be" album (a personal fave) or any of their releases before that.

They do have the "Bastards of Young" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tZO94Mhfzk) vid you mentioned though. That was before they got all mellow and shit. Gotta give it up for Westerberg though; he's a motherfucker of a songwriter, in any era one cares to name.

The ones who love us best are the ones we'll lay to rest
And visit their graves on holidays at best
The ones who love us least are the ones we'll die to please
If it's any consolation, I don't begin to understand them


I'd suggest getting to know some REM if ya don't, especially their early murky-vox-vs-jangly-Rickenbacker type stuff.

Heh heh.  I've seen those before, but only in the ads from the company that sells them.  They make a small size for refitting your ATV and bigger sizes for small cars and big-ass trucks.  I hear they're kind of fragile, but what the hell.  That's got to be mad kinds of fun.

Back when monster truck and tractor pull stuff was cool, they used to have a category for tracked vehicles.  There were a few teams who'd blow a full-size van's engine and put full-length tracks on the van.  The things would stand up on their rear ends on takeoff and slide around turns making a hellacious noise, but they were pretty damned cool.

If you imagine a small bulldozer built for 0-60 in five seconds, it's kind of like that.

St. Ansgar was in fact a Baltic dude from Lithuania or thereabouts who twice failed to convert the Danes to Xtianity.

A great follow-up to that would be the same guy calling the help desk again after ripping a page out of the book.  Of course, he'd deny having ripped the page out of the book after he hid it under his ass.  He would proclaim loudly that he was very skilled in the use of the new system and that he'd never do something so ignorant.

The help desk guy would explain that there was nothing that he could do. If the guy really hadn't pulled a page out of the book, then he would have to go back to the publisher and make a warranty claim.

Then, the guy with the damaged book would accuse the help desk guy of shirking his responsibility so that he could go back to his desk and use his useless new system with all the pretty drawings inside.

Did you see Gia? In all critical seriosity, that was an outstanding picture and it would have been so even if she hadn't been sofa king naked and making out with the other chick.

It is possible that she used up her entire reserve of good acting (one theory says creativity is a discrete, finite pool and everyone has a different volume to draw from and once it's done, that's it) with this one role.

I was lucky to have been at a cramped little bar at Lavida Hot Springs on the outer fringes of Orange County on a night when the Suburban Lawns (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32-LHS2-LxU) were part of a small lineup of new wave bands. Here (http://www.members.tripod.com/weirdotronix/wotxgig1.htm) is someone else that was there (scroll down to the 11/21/1979 entry, and please forgive the popups). I remember the Idle Rich were pretty bad on that night. Geza X also performed unbilled, as I recall. Or maybe he was just there and someone pointed him out. The Suburban Lawns wowed me, even though I was a hippy interloper still bemused by the punk scene. (Unfortunately, I had to leave before the Weirdos came on.) The YouTube clip is from another show, but it's how I remember them. They were an inspiration.

So there was this one punk girl at that bar on that night that I happened to know. We were in school, on the college newspaper together. She knew a lot of bands and stuff, and was there to see the Weirdos. She introduced me to a lot of incredible music. A few years later I married her. Here is one of her big-time favorites: The Last (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-YGbQvni4U). This is not by any means their best song, but it's ok. Their best songs grab you by the guts.

Har.  They sell collars for cats that have laser pointers built in, and there's a remote to turn the laser on and off, but they're like $50.  I can just move the laser around myself and save $47 . . . .

My SIL bought one of those "Robotic" things that sits on the floor and allegedly moves a laser pointer around in a sort of Spirograph pattern.  It actually moves in a circle that shifts around slightly.  One of our cats will watch it, but not chase it, whereas she goes crazy if you wiggle a laser pointer.  In fact, by now she gets all excited if she sees a ballpoint pen.

She's either very smart or very dumb.

Judging by this cat, it's less of a fine line and more of a kingdom.  This morning, my brother and SIL kept hearing a beeping noise they were sure was a cell phone or something.  I said, "It sounds like glass clinking somewhere."

The cat had somehow dragged a small glass bowl (ramekin-sized) down the stairs and into the basement, without breaking it, and she was amusing herself by shoving it around the concrete floor with her head.

Well, Jane didn't "blurt it out for no reason", but she obviously wasn't too concerned about saying it on TV.  Maybe she's on meds, or maybe she's oblivious, or maybe she's hardcore.  I dunno . . . I have to admit that she's often come off as oblivious.  She's certainly had her moments, but she lives in her own world.

In Georgia, apparently.  To me, that was the weird part.

I saw a sciency nature program about THE BRAIN (OMG) the other month, and they were talking about differences between human and pet brains.  After repeating the old chestnut that dogs can't see colors, they also said that dogs and cats can't recognize images in mirrors or TVs because they rely on more than their eyes to determine 3D.

I was seriously wondering who was in their research department, but, actually, compared to the AP . . . .   I just read an AP article about the new solar project Arizona, and it carefully explained that the new plant would use the sun's "direct heat" but NOT "light" to make electricity.

So, um, they'll be sticking a big metal rod into the sun to tap that heat, or something?

My ex's parents had an adorable little white cat who was obsessed with trying to pounce on football players during televised games, and we used to have a cat that was utterly hypnotized when the TV showed birds.  Nothing else on TV caught her attention, but almost any kind of moving bird, whether it was making noise or not, would get her glued to the set.  It wasn't as funny as trying to disrupt a touchdown, but still.

When I was a kid, there was an elderly woman who lived up the block.  My younger sister was good friends with her.  Anyway, this woman owned one of those half-size collies and a border collie.  The regular collie was one of those exuberant Everyone Is My Friend! dogs.  The border collie was a calm dog . . . and the woman could name pretty much any object in her house, and the border collie would go get it for her.  (Assuming it could lift it, I mean.)  She could say, "Go get my book," and the dog would know she meant the book she was currently reading, not just some book off a shelf, and the dog would know where the book was.

No training.  The dog just somehow learned to do this.

My shithead brother-in-law and my two angel nieces. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvNQZDk3Xnw)

It's long, and you have my apologies for the guitar playing. You can't get the cute without it.

The older of my nieces is freakishly tall (5'9" at 10 years old) and more than a bit nerdy (She flaps her arms uncontrollably when excited or nervous. It's the strangest thing.), but has this amazing self confidence about her. She's an odd duck, but for whatever reason the disapproval of her less-accepting peers, which is so very damaging to 99% of girls her age, seems to just roll off of her. She is unashamedly different and I wish I had some of that strength.

The younger one was a preemie and has developmental and physical difficulties -- she's nearly blind on one eye and is challenged in the other as well -- but is nothing less than a street fighter in attitude and approach. To her there are not obstacles, just flaming things you crash through Evel Kneivel-style.

My sister and her husband are disappointing. Neither seems capable of functioning like an adult, and they're in the final throes of their marriage. It'll all be over within the next couple of weeks, and it's both their damned faults. I have no sympathy for them, only for my nieces, who deserve better.

Enjoy the adorable. There's seconds for everybody!

I have totally done that, including in situations where people didn't realize they were going to surprise me.  The World's Shortest Alice Cooper Fan once ran up behind me and shouted (in school, no less) and got laid out flat.  But usually I pull my punches in time.  I am the paranoid sort, though.  One time, as a prank, someone stood on a toilet and poured cold water on my head (over the top of the shower curtain) while I was showering, and they were punched, through the curtain, off the toilet and onto the floor, bad scene, before I even realized WTF was happening.

And I once reacted to a surprise party by shouting JESUS FUCK!  Which disconcerted the children.  [ahem]  And this is why I don't carry a gun.


As for Sarah Silverman, I cannot for the life of me imagine why she stays with Kimmel when she could be fucking Matt Damon.  Or Bob freakin' Odekerk, or practically anyone.

Oh no. We have that exact same couple in this town. They have a lock on filming school theater productions. The guy is a dead ringer for this dude. Also he suffers from palsy. And never watches the show before filming so he's always surprised by the action and tends to zoom in on random characters on stage who don't have speaking roles ... wait.

Come to think of it maybe that's why those parents always seem to be slipping him twenties before the show starts.

Puh-riceless.

This isn't really the same thing, but I was already going to post a cross-linguistic little video:  Faye Wong doing Bohemian Rhapsody (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kae_Dx5_pZU&feature=related).

It's not a masterpiece, just a second-encore shameless-audience-pleaser Why The Hell Not sort of thing, but I like Faye, and I found this weirdly en :trance: ing.  She looks and sounds a little tired, but I'm amused by her 5-year-old uncoordinated I Think I'm Dancing -- Am I Dancing? moves when the rhythm suddenly gets her and she starts to prance a bit like Bambi learning to walk.

Perhaps (:confused:) oddly, it made me want to see a little white girl sing Bohemian Rhapsody in Mandarin.  I'd settle for Cantonese.

I don't know if I'm the last one to the zefrank party, but my rhetorical friends talk about him a lot at parties and laugh, so I finally followed a link . . . and I also admired and laughed.

The one the rhetorical friends were talking about (and doing impressions of) that made me give in and look 'em up was one of the first Ugly My Space contest ones -- the one where he sings a song about ugliness, mocks a bunch of My Space pages, mocks someone who wrote in to tell him he was wasting his time mocking people who don't have design training, and then gives a little clued-in rant about how new kinds of design are now available to and scrutinized by the unwashed masses, and yadda yadda.

I felt like he missed an important point or two (like that when the masses, vs experts, create new standards for esthetics, it's not necessarily better or worse, just different), but considering the density of his little rants, it's intensely :thumbsup:

Especially since I almost always hate those home-edited iMovies online-video things.  If I really like yours, you must be doing something really right.  The whole problem with design experts is that tend to become fetishists, divorced from general 'good taste' because they're bored with it and want to stand out.  The whole problem with mass art is that it tends to gravitate toward whatever is painfully easy and structureless (like unrhyming blank verse), and consequently there tends to be a lot of it produced with very little esthetic included.

It's great that 'everyone' (a lot more people than it used to be) can now explore editing movies at home and then distribute them on the internet, but that doesn't mean the resulting movies are great.  It's generally like everybody took their awful holiday slides, set the screen at a weird angle, and then changed slides at random intervals while playing bad music.

But, so far, zefrank is zebomb.  I rely on social networks of early penguins to sort through all the bad mass-art and find the good stuff so I don't have to . . . much as he says.

This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJom6sIT_c0) is video of Goat2 reading an essay to his school. He wrote the essay for a contest -- The Kindest Kansas Citian -- and nominated a friend of ours, also in the video, who is a breast cancer survivor. The essay was chosen as a finalist from among 5500 in the KC area.

He's reading it in front of about 700 people and doing a great job --he wasn't nervous at all. I don't think there was an adult with a dry eye by the time he finished. When he went back to his class after the assembly his classmates gave him a standing ovation.

I wonder if the entertainment gurus who decry pirating understand that it's their own archaic need to control release schedules that emboldens so much piracy.  If they'd make the media we want available, there'd be so little need for piracy.  Given the choice between downloading maybe decent quality torrents and buying/renting a professional release, I'll choose the official release every time.

*They're making a US version of Spaced (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117974978.html?categoryid=14&cs=1) (Powered behind the same genius that brought us Charlie's Angels 1&2), so at least there's a chance we'll finally see a US release of the original.  It really sucks that Pegg, Stevenson, and Wright have no ownership of the show.

I don't know about now, but a few years ago it was easy and pretty cheap to get a Region-2 or region-free (flashed) DVD player.  I have two DVD players (one was about $50, and the other $20) that can be flashed to be region-free.  I just haven't bothered because (A) it makes some of the remote control's functions stop working, and (B) I don't actually have any Region-2 DVDs.

El Caminito del Rey (English: The King's pathway) is a walkway or via ferrata, now fallen into disrepair, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in Málaga, Spain. The name is often shortened to El Camino del Rey.

The walkway has now gone many years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated and dangerous state. It is one meter (3 feet) in width, and is over 200 meters (700 feet) above the river. Nearly all of the path has no handrail. Some parts of the concrete walkway have completely collapsed and all that is remaining is the steel beam originally in place to hold it up and the wire that follows most the path. One can latch onto the wire to keep from falling. Many people have lost their lives on the walkway in recent years. After four people died in two accidents in 1999 and 2000, the local government closed the entrances; however, adventurous tourists still find their way into the walkway.

I've loved Weezer ever since I first heard these lyrics:

I've got the Dungeon Master's Guide.
I've got a 12-sided die.
I've got Kitty Pryde
And Nightcrawler too
Waiting there for me.
Yes I do, I do.

I've got posters on the wall,
My favorite rock group, KISS.
I've got Ace Frehley.
I've got Peter Criss
Waiting there for me.
Yes I do, I do

[chorus]
In the garage, I feel safe.
No one cares about my ways.
In the garage where I belong.
No one hears me sing this song.
In the garage.

And now I love them even more. *sniff* I love you, Weezer.

And seriously, the scene where the sobbing "leavin britney alone" youtube kid is singing the song into the mic opposite Weezer's lead singer while K-Fed produces them from the booth is @#$#!@$#@ genius!!

Racy speech lands student in hot water
Teen campaigning for school valedictorian
Louise Dickson, Victoria Times Colonist; Canwest News Service
Published: Friday, April 25

VICTORIA - A Vancouver Island school district is investigating a speech by a high school student in which he jokes about Jews, black women, gays, the disabled and a former teacher's breasts.

Spokesman Ron Warder confirmed Thursday that the Sooke School District is examining the speech, which was posted to YouTube, in which 17-year-old Brandon Rosario urged classmates to vote for him as valedictorian.

"As I understand it, it had racial slurs and some homophobic type of conversation," said Warder. "And the school is investigating whether or not there needs to be discipline."

"Some of it is biting. It's attacking," said Rosario. "I don't think people understand satire these days. But investigating? Like I'm a serial killer or something?"

In Tuesday's speech, Rosario tells his classmates he doesn't have much going for him in pursuit of the valedictorian nomination.

"For one, I'm not Jewish. So I'm obviously not going to be naturally hilarious like Jon Stewart or Jerry Seinfeld or Adam Sandler."

His message, Rosario insists, was vote for him and he would deliver a valedictory address free of cliches.

"I was going to break the archetype of 'Life is a highway,' or 'Life is a box of chocolates.' I think society should be past that. I also think society should be past the political correctness all around us. People are so sensitive. They take things out of context."

Rosario was called down to talk to the vice-principal the following day.

"She said everything I expected her to say -- how if people took what I said out of context it could appear racist or sexist or anti-Semitic," said Rosario.

"Anybody who knows me, knows they can separate what I say from who I am. Anybody who says I'm anti-gay doesn't know me. I have nothing against gays or anybody else I mentioned. When is the wall going to be broken down? When is it going to be OK to make fun of things?"

Rosario admits he crossed the line when he mentioned the physical attributes of a teacher who used to be at the school. "I apologize for that."

A speech by the 17-year-old Belmont Secondary student urging fellow students to vote for him as class valedictorian is being investigated by the Sooke School District, spokesman Ron Warder confirmed yesterday.

The speech, now posted on YouTube, was regarded by many students as hilarious. But some teachers and parents are uncomfortable with Brandon's references to Jews, Colombians, black women, gays and the disabled.

"As I understand it, it had racial slurs and some homophobic type of conversation," Warder said. "And the school is investigating whether or not there needs to be discipline."

"Some of it is biting. It's attacking," Brandon said. "I don't think people understand satire these days. But investigating? Like I'm a serial killer or something?"

In his speech, Brandon tells his classmates he doesn't have much going for him in pursuit of the valedictorian nomination.

"For one, I'm not Jewish. So I'm obviously not going to be naturally hilarious like Jon Stewart or Jerry Seinfeld or Adam Sandler."

He goes on to make fun of everything else he's not. His message, Brandon insists, was simply vote for him as class valedictorian and he would deliver a valedictory address free of clichés.

"I was going to break the archetype of 'Life is a highway,' or 'Life is a box of chocolates.' I think society should be past that. I also think society should be past the political correctness all around us. People are so sensitive. They take things out of context."

Brandon and 10 other valedictorian candidates spoke to the graduating class on Tuesday. On Wednesday, during English class, Brandon was called down to talk to the vice-principal.

"She said everything I expected her to say - how if people took what I said out of context, it could appear racist or sexist or anti-Semitic," Brandon said. "She also said it would have been perfect at a nightclub. That struck me, because I wasn't making the speech for the administration or the teachers. I'm making it for the class of '08.

"Anybody who knows me knows they can separate what I say from who I am. Anybody who says I'm anti-gay doesn't know me. I have nothing against gays or anybody else I mentioned. When is the wall going to be broken down? When is it going to be OK to make fun of things?"

Brandon admits he crossed the line when he mentioned the physical attributes of a teacher who used to be at the school. "I apologize for that."

Valerie Chatterton, a drama, debating and public-speaking coach at Glenlyon Norfolk school, said schools don't teach enough humour.

"We teach the serious and the angsty, but very few students get an opportunity to learn about wit. They don't have an automatic barometer in their heads as to what's mean and what's not. And they don't learn that in school."

The controversy raises questions about the limits of free speech in schools and the need to balance freedom of speech with protection of the vulnerable, said Chatterton, who watched the video and pronounced Brandon a gifted speaker - even though she didn't like his speech.

In the end, the Belmont graduating class voted for candidate Craig Lequesne.

"I'm really happy about it," Brandon said. "He's got a great personality. He's a good speaker, and he's done a lot for the school. He's actually who I voted for."

Brandon plans to take a year off, then study literature and creative writing at the University of Victoria. But at least this tempest in a teapot has helped him realize one of his life's ambitions.

"It's been my dream to come home and see a Times Colonist reporter at the end of my driveway, wanting to interview me," he wisecracked. "I'm really excited about this actually."

He was probably the funniest of the candidates, but it wasn't the best school speech I've ever heard.  Pretty good, but not great.  The Omicronians can stand around the water cooler to discuss it, but, while I can certainly see why some people might've thought some of it was Bad, it's not worth stirring shit up over.

If you don't expect teenagers to do and say inappropriate things, you have no business dealing with or commenting on teenagers.  I'm not saying you have to condone everything they do or say, but you can't act shocked and still have a worthwhile opinion.  A lot of people just like getting their huff on.

No, the other kind of huff.  Or maybe both.  I dunno.

People who kill animals or eat meat are piece of shit motherfuckers.

I like meat.

I think it's hypocritical not to be willing to do the killing, though.  The guilt and unpleasantness is part of the price you pay.  It's supposed to be that way.  It makes you respect the animal.
Title: Re: a thread for sharing online video
Post by: mrcookieface on July 26, 2008, 06:15:21 PM
I totally agree with Nexism.

Anybody that eats meat should slaughter, bleed, and butcher the animal they devour at least once in their lifetime - cattle, pig, fowl, or fish.  It's only fair to expose us omnivores to the unpleasantness that we serve at our tables, rather than the clean packaging the supermarkets offer.

I've got fish and fowl under my belt, but I've yet to kill a cow or pig.  I'm willing to, though.  Steak and bacon taste good.

Brilliant!

And that's not my real voice. That's my adenoidal "talking to the press voice." It's also my "I'm hungover and there's marching bands" voice, as well as my "I'll try not to crack up because my GM is standing behind the camera lady and ghost humping her in full view of 24,000 breast cancer runners.

My every day voice is deep and flowing like the ol' Mississip.'

You Suck at Photoshop (http://www.mydamnchannel.com/Big_Fat_Brain/You_Suck_at_Photoshop__Season_1/YouSuckatPhotoshop1_398.aspx)

As promised. I should explain a bit, because I almost didn't watch it the first time I clicked on it. This really isn't about Photoshop. I mean, actually, there's some good Photoshop advice in here, but you don't have to care anything about Photoshop to find the videos amusing. It's a series of 10 instructional videos about 6 minutes long each, by a guy who's going through some emotional... issues. His issues grow as the series progresses.

Oh cool, I just noticed there's a season 2. There's like 15 episodes now.

If we increase the size of the penguin until it is the same size as the killer whale and then compare the relative brain sizes, we now find that the penguin's brain is still smaller.  BUT, and this is the point, it is larger than it was.

Some women look fine completely shaved, and some are better off leaving a bit of manicured lawn.

Men who are completely shaved generally wind up with a sort of Special Ed look to them.  It's pretty gruesome.  Grooming is good, but you don't want to look like a miscut eunuch or a nine-year-old with a pituitary problem.

But I had no idea squirrels were carnivorous. Or openly attacked other animals and ate them. None of the wildlife books I've ever read say anything about that.

Jays themselves can be aggressive, they'll steal eggs from other birds' nests, etc. Their corvid cousins, crows, have been known to gang up on a jay or squirrel and even other crows and peck them to death, when they sense weakness, i.e. disease or injury.

The birds in the corvid family, ravens, magpies, et al, are all scary smart.

And for some reason now I am having a difficult time eating my cottage cheese.  :sick:

Are you due for a rant yet? I don't recall reading anything by you about squirrels.

Yes, they are a strange group of critters. We have the Eastern gray squirrel here primarily, an introduced species, which has driven out the mellower Western gray squirrel in the lowlands. The Easterns, which I suspect the carnivorous one in the video to be, are definitely very aggressive.

Up in the foothills you can usually hear, but rarely see the black squirrels. If you throw chipmunks into the equation, they can be bold despite their size. There is also a squirrel variety in the mountains whose name escapes me, that hung out at our favorite campground. When I has working at Wild Birds Unlimited, I'd buy a big bag of hazelnuts to take with us. We'd layout a couple dozen of them and watch to see how many a squirrel could shove into his piehole, and more often there was always one who could get all 24 into his cheek pouches.

I just remembered we had a squirrel that lived near our house in North Seattle a few years back that would run around in circles and then collapse on the lawn like it was dead.

You'd go out and prod it with a stick and it seemed dead, but then after a certain point it would suddenly jump up and run away. Scared the shit out of me the first time it happened.

A wildlife biologist told me this kind of behavior can happen in squirrels due to calcium deficiency, poor diet (like french fries? ;) ) or head trauma. :shrug:
Title: Re: a thread for sharing online video
Post by: random axe on December 30, 2008, 03:31:51 PM
Actually, the Search function isn't helping me out finding an old squirrel rant.  How . . . odd.

Squirrels are just weird, in that category of Common But Weirder Than You Realize.  Part of what's weird about them is how popular nature guides often leave out lots of stuff that more scholarly references include, like how some of them dig underground burrows, the whole carnivore thing (Fox squirrels, especially -- they even eat each other sometimes), and their strange range of lifespans.  Some gray squirrel species live like 20 years, but red squirrels typically live around 3 years.

Also, like half the time when someone sees a chipmunk, it's actually a spotted ground squirrel.  Chipmunks are frickin' cute but will eat eggs and baby birds, too, and they dig surprisingly large burrows (although nothing like the bizarro badger burrows).  Chipmunks are major mushroom spore dispersers.  And another weird thing about chipmunks is that there's like one species native to Asia, one native to Eastern North America, and . . . two dozen native to Western North America.  Way to hog the chipmunks, California.

Watching their videos, I have to wonder who influenced who - listening to these, you can definitely hear many other bands. And watching them, you can't help but think of Spinal Tap  :P

Me, too -- at first, I just treated them like J-Pop:  that kind of pop music is usually so much more palatable if you can't understand the words.  But their videos were frequently pretty awesome.  Whoever was writing and producing their stuff was deeper than the usual Spice Girls fluff.  Check out the video for Simple Motions (Prostie dvizeniya) sometime -- the visual imagery draws parallels between sensual stimulation of various kinds and lots of other repetitive motions (you'll never stir your coffee the same way again) and even a Gurdjieff work camp.  Bizarre. 

Unfortunately, few people seem to have drawn any connections and seem to just think the brunette is fantasizing about the redhead amidst a collage of random stock footage.

Also, because I specifically bought the Russian version of their breakout CD, I don't have the whatever-it-was (I can never remember) notable cover that they did, which is the only track by them that most people I know are familiar with.  Honestly, the teen-lesbian thing is whatever, and it just amuses me that the Spice Girls, et al, didn't hit on it first, but the music performance and videos are above average.  I didn't buy a second CD, or anything, but I thought about it.

Ok, I've spent about an hour bouncing back and forth between Wikipedia and YouTube, trying to figure out what you would call that sound/genre, and I'm like  :trance:

I like it, and I'd like to find other bands/recordings like that. What would you call that? Big Beat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Beat)?

This is just a few of the listings of alternate techno genres from Wiki: Acid - Detroit - Free tekno - Ghettotech - Jtek - Minimal - Nortec - Schranz - Tech house - Tech trance - Wonky - Yorkshire Bleeps and Bass Ambient · Breakbeat · Drum and bass · Electro · Eurodance · Hardcore · House · Industrial · Synthpop · Techno · Trance · Trip hop · UK garage

I really like it too.  I've always called it big beat or break beat.

Some of my favorite albums are the Chemical Brothers Loops of Fury ep, The Propellerheads, Headzilla, Fatboy Slim's Better Living Through Chemistry & You've Come A Long Way, Baby, The Wiseguys Start The Commotion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBJmR0uA5jQ) (because the video's so great).

Give me a minute, I'll think of more.

Fluke's good.  Here's Atom Bomb (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVNhZ1rNHGs&feature=related), but I like Zion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmLyZajiweU) better, even though it was in the second Matrix movie when all the humans did that hedonistic dance scene.  Anyway, I wouldn't particularly call Zion big beat, so I'm digressing.

Add N To (X) isn't really big beat either.  They're an actual band, but they sound like the genre.  Check out the video for Metal Fingers In My Body (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhXJYNWB_ao&feature=related) (NSFW) and see what you think.  I think they're great.

Lunatic Calm was big beat, but they didn't really do much for me.  Same for the Crystal Method.  I thought they were pretty slick and unoriginal.  I almost forgot Prodigy, but they're okay.

Scouring through my CDs I see Lionrock, Gearwhore, Lo-Fidelity Allstars – who had a hit covering Pigeonhead's Battleflag (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuwWvPGul3o&feature=related), and, oh yeah!  Apollo Four Forty.  I always thought Ain't Talking 'Bout Dub (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIJmoNjFhQ0&feature=related) was pretty funny, but around that time DJs starting kicking up the bass and treble, and taking away the middle.  Speed it up a notch and you got yourself some Jungle or Drum 'n Bass.  Big beat only lasted from about 1995 to 1998.

Did I miss anybody, Postie?

Yes, it's Big Beat. Dunno why it didn't endure like other genres; too centralized on one DJ/label (Fat Boy Slim/Skint) perhaps? I always thought it was a lot of fun. Now the emos are bringing their bleepy 8-bit noises into everything, and so we get new genres like "wonky" and "skweee" instead. (I do sorta like the skweee, it's got that Scandinavian flava to it)

The best example of the style imho would be his "On the Floor at the Boutique" mix cd. Like a good essayist, he begins with his thesis statement, "Apache" by Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band, and then goes on to play a whole set of music largely based on the drum break from that track. His big hit "Rockafeller Skank" is in there ("right about now, the funk soul brotha, check it out now, the funk soul brotha"; heh, that one. As seen in many movies of the era) as well as his remix of Negativland "Michael Jackson" and all sorts of good things. (here (http://rapidshare.com/files/111311478/1998OTFATB_Up_by_mizzar_dla_www.peb.pl.rar.html), pwd is www.peb.pl shhh  ;))

on preview: No that's a pretty solid list man. haha, I have that Apollo 440 on vinyl somewhere. Battleflag is on the "Songs Nobody Dislikes, Ever" list. Fat Boy Slim started out in the Housemartins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6GXV0FNEeI), heh. Prodigy has a new album out I haven't heard, but nobody seems to be feeling it much.

Drum 'n bass is not the same thing. It starts at like around 180 bpm and goes up from there. In fact, even tho Norman Cook is an Englishman I'd separate Big Beat apart from the whole UK acid house to breakbeat 'ardcore to jungle to drum 'n bass (to speed garage/UK 2-step to dubstep to bassline/niche to UK funky and/or wonky and j-tek) timeline continuum that's still going on...

Genre talk always gets weird though.

Oh you are going to love it. It's just a great DJ doing a solid live mix. FBS sort of fell out of favor the way all DJs that get famous do (everybody called him Frat Boy Slim for awhile when he was trendy...can't hate on dancing Walken (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMZwZiU0kKs) though), but it didn't mean he suddenly forgot how to play or whatever.

What the hell is that Vex feller doing?

Isn't that something?

This is on Alex's label (the guy who does the show before me on Wed nites; talented jock, swell gent) so I've been hearing it for awhile, but now everybody is playing it. He ended a few of his shows with it, and people of course are going off like ZOMG...then I gotta follow that, haha. Sorta like when Jerry Lee Lewis set the piano on fire and walked offstage and told Chuck Berry to "top that" right? heh, but anyway it gets a big pop wherever it's dropped. But yeah, it's not really something you'd normally mix in the traditional beat-matching sense...it's not like there's a dozen more similar tracks in the crate or anything. But once that thing starts lurching around the speakers it doesn't really matter anymore...

I've only ever seen little bits of the show, but I've never heard anything good on it.  Do the contestants get to pick their pieces?  A number of those seem like they mostly picked the wrong song / tempo / arrangement (the arrangements of some of those were HORRIBLE, blame-the-band-more horrible :lol:).  And I think the #1 on that list was seriously choking under the pressure.

Also . . . most of those people should not try to sing and dance at the same time.  It's not working out.

I know that a lot of the hilariously terrible auditions for Idol are staged, and I'm sure they rig the winners, but do you think they intentionally screw with the losers?  Some of those poor saps on that list looked like they'd been ambushed by the band playing in the wrong key or going too fast, and they were trying to make the best of it (and failing).

Post by: random axe on February 11, 2009, 05:59:09 PM
Yeah . . . he can be entertaining, and he can do good stuff (intermittently), but he's kind of a dick.

There are a lot of comedians who can be REALLY funny . . . and also be really tiresome . . . and who can't tell which is which.  Tarantino is like that, except with his comprehension of 'cool' rather than 'funny'.  And, like a lot of comedians, he's so intense about it that he'll take his 'on' moments and beat them to death with his 'off' if he's not careful.  And he's rarely careful.

Still, when his stuff is good, it's farkin' gold.  But when it's crap, it's crap.  And his attention span is iffy.  He talked a lot of big talk about bringing tons of awesome Asian films (samurai, kung fu, horror, etc, mostly from the 1980s and earlier) to US theaters, and as far as I can remember he lost interest after, what, getting a Japanese softcore film into rental places and Mighty Peking Man into about sixty theaters, mostly on the West Coast where it probably would've already shown up on occasion.

If memory serves, Mira Sorvino got pissed at him after that.  Well, I'd tend to side with her, myself.

I'll just state the obvious, that Tarantino is incapable of producing a movie that doesn't rely on excessive almost cartoon violence and snarky dialogue. I mean, at least make ONE that isn't about some guy doing crimes to further his rockstar lifestyle...

I know I know, he's trying to run away to Germany and rekindle "From Dusk to Dawn" styley glory days, so maybe I'm out of line here.

I think he's capable of making great movies. That's not to say that he hasn't made some great movies. I have to wonder if he's found comfort in making deliberate B movies - maybe he's scared of doing something really serious that flops.

Quote
After Pulp Fiction he directed episode four of Four Rooms, "The Man from Hollywood", a tribute to the Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode that starred Steve McQueen. Four Rooms was a collaborative effort with filmmakers Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, and Robert Rodriguez. The film was very poorly received by critics and audiences.

I've never seen that, but maybe that was his attempt at something serious that flopped. I remember watching him on the Actor's Studio - he's like a walking encyclopedia of film, and it's obvious he's got a deep love for film. Strange that he doesn't try to do something more serious. I wish he would - I'd like to see what he's capable of, but then, hey, it's his art, and if that's his thing, then I'm thankful for what he's done so far.

Also, I never would have guessed he was born in Knoxville.

No, it's pure comedy on a bed of AV nerd.  It IS hilarious, but it might only be funny (or might be much funnier) if you've seen the famous Steve McQueen / Peter Lorre short that he's doing a parody of.  I don't know.  I bet it's pretty funny even if you haven't.

Four Rooms is a really uneven little vignette film starring Tim Roth and a massive cast of supporting actors.  Roth plays a long-suffering bellboy at a hotel.  Four rooms, four short films.  The first segment is about a bunch of topless witches (including Madonna, Sammi Davis, and, particularly memorably, Ione Skye), and it's OK but nothing amazing -- without the nudity, it wouldn't have too much going for it.  Then there's also a misfiring segment where the bellhop falls afoul of a jealous husband.

The other two segments (by Rodriguez and Tarantino) are gold.  Rodriguez's has two misbehaving kids whose parents (Antonio Banderas and Tamlyn Tomita, wowser) pay the bellhop to babysit.  It's friggin' funny.  The last segment is the Tarantino one, which, like the Alfred Hitchcock segment, revolves around a bet that has serious consequences.  The punchline does seriously depend on the tension in the very creepy and classic original version, but, seriously . . . I bet it's funny even if you haven't seen the original.


I don't know about Tarantino and 'serious film'.  I think he really wants to do awesome schlock, and I don't mean "schlock" in a bad way.  Jackie Brown was his homage to blaxploitation, and it's mostly a solid film but turned out to be much more serious and much less schlocky than what I would have expected.  That might be his 'serious' film, so far.

I would be happy to see him settle down and make slightly more mainstream versions of the Grindhouse pictures.  I mean, Nicolas Cage, for instance, is a fine actor who seems determined to make bad movies.  Why not put him in good bad movies?  Wouldn't you rather see Tarantino make, say, a Doc Savage movie (or The Spider . . . oooh) than Bret Ratner, et al? 

I would.  I don't know who's supposed to be directing the upcoming Green Hornet flick, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out badly -- and if Tarantino could've done a better job.  Hey, it makes more sense than having Tim Burton do Batman movies.

I thought "Four Rooms" was all right... the witchcraft segment is delicious eyecandy... :googily:

But the two segments from the Golden Boys are pretty overrated in hindsight. A whole "vignette" devoted to two kids smelling their feet and an uncredited Bruce Willis walking around talking on a cell phone...the finger-chopping part was pretty funny. I guess.

See, thing is I used to really dig Tarantino, and now I realize it was rather retarded hero worship on my part. Actually, I realized that after sitting through the overindulgent turkey "From Dusk Til Dawn," such an exclusive party they felt the need to film the making of it and release it as a separate movie. . I expected a hell of a lot more out of Rodriguez on the whole. "El Mariachi" was fantastic. Everything afterwards was great in terms of camera work, but spread too thinly otherwise. Didn't see his movies for kids, so I wouldn't know about those....

Rodriguez's stuff is uneven, and I do think it often gets fanboy overrated, but Mariachi has a kind of low-budget gritty ultra-brilliance, and Desperado is a sort of duende kung fu, a very spiffy spaghetti-with-chili Western.  Desperado is sometimes a little too self-impressed, or maybe just overconfident, and I think it stumbles slightly into a different flavor of melodrama when his brothers show up, but even that part certainly has its moxie.  Haven't seen the third one yet.

The kids' movies are . . . odd.  Rodriguez said he deliberately tried not to think about other kids' movies or other spy movies, etc, as much as possible, but just to make crap up as he went along.  I saw the first one, and, yeah, he hit that target.  It's almost like Spirited Away in terms of That's Not Your Usual Story Element.  Form and mode, perfectly recognizeable; execution, very strange.  Hits and misses, but worth seeing.  I only saw the first one, though.


That last Four Rooms segment depends on tension, and the walkin'-and-talkin' is part of that, but maybe it really does depend on knowing ahead of time where it's going and just wondering how it's going to get there.  The whole point of the remake-of-the-original is the abrupt changes in flow.  It's entirely possible, too, that back in the day the uncredited Bruce Willis appearance was more of a surprise and added more to it.  I can't guess, from here and now.  :shrug:

In the '60s, some company tried marketing a hovercraft push-mower.  I don't think they'd thought the concept through.  I remember seeing it in Popular Scichanics (whichever one) and thinking, "I wouldn't want to push that up a hill."

The lawnmower (which is not actually a lawnmower) has several rudders mounted on the underbody, and the pushbar has an aerofoil and must generate a fair amount of drag, which would help it stay straight.

I think there might actually be a prop on the front, or else that the jet, if it's really a jet, exhausts farther forward than you'd think.  A lot of modern designs put all the propulsion in the ass, which has its advantages but is inherently unstable.  (I am ALWAYS amazed when a NASA-style rocket goes up exactly where it's supposed to.  Amateur rocket scientists will happily tell you how unstable the traditional design is.)  Propulsion 'pulling' from the front is inherently stable -- the body of the craft just wants to follow the thrust.

The lifting body is clearly pretty efficient, but, then, I bet that thing weighs a whole lot less than a real lawnmower.  Still, when I was first watching it, I figured they'd get a flarecraft-type flight out of it, maybe a foot off the ground.  :lol:  I was hypnotized when it soared upward so easily.

I want to see him cut various things!  :lol:

I've seen this kind of thing before, and I wasn't actually all that impressed until he hit the airsoft bullet.  :shock:  His eye-hand coordination and reflexes are unbelievable -- especially to be able to (apparently) do that in one take.  His two-handed cutting technique is weird but obviously effective; his one-handed drawing cut is much more traditional.

Cutting the pipe is actually the least impressive thing he did -- with a good sword, almost anyone could do that.  Sharp hard steel against soft steel is no contest -- you can take a real katana (not a QVC stainless steel one) and shave curlicues off the head of a sledgehammer all day.  The announcer was spot on when he said the amazing part was how little he cut into the wooden stand.  With a good Japanese blade, a fast curved swing will cut through all kinds of crap amazingly.  (I once saw a katana demonstration on TV where the blade cut through a handkerchief that was just dropped on it.)  Control and precision are what's incredible.  I once saw a guy cut through three raw eggs but not crack the fourth one and chop through a scarf wrapped around a wooden pole without cutting the pole.

The whole medieval martial arts thing never gets the proper respect.  I saw a documentary on bow weapons last year that not only showed the traditional Japanese riding-a-galloping-horse-and-shooting-at-tiny-targets competition (honestly, just staying on the horse is impressive) but also a guy who was trying to emulate the Mongolian short bow.  The short-bow guy had assistants randomly throw these small wooden disks (smaller than Frisbees) into the air, about twenty feet from him, and he hit twelve of them in under ten seconds like it was nothing.

I'm also always impressed by anyone who gets to be really, really good with a fast sword like a katana and keeps both their ears.

She says (emphatically) a bad word that might be NSFW.

I dunno about Megan Fox.  I know I can be hard to please, but I'm not nearly as sold on her as most guys seem to be.  She seems like a better actress than, uh, Carmen Electra, say, but I'm not hypnotized.

Movie could be funny.  So much depends on so much that won't fit into the trailer.  I still think the Grindhouse guys should've made a feature that was nothing but a collection of 3-minute trailers for fictitious films.  So much easier to make an awesome trailer for a hard-to-film movie than to make an awesome movie of it, you know?

Post by: mrcookieface on January 08, 2010, 03:45:28 PM
This is driving me nuts, so I help somebody here can help.   :pray:

There's a black and white cartoon - a music video, and the cartoon has an old-timey look to it like it's from the '20s, and the music sounds like it comes from the same era, but the song may have been as recently as the '40s because it has a boogie-woogie sound to it.  It almost sounds like a really uptempo Mills Brothers tune, but I've gone through my Mills Brothers CDs and don't think it's them.

Anyway, in the video there's a guy in a room that just basically gets overrun by ornery crows, and in all actuality, I think the cartoon was probably made recently within the past few years but just has that old Steamboat Willie kind of vintage look to it.

I've tried googling and searching Youtube with keywords like "black and white cartoon", "crows", "boogie-woogie", "music video", and even "plates" because if I recall correctly the crows are throwing and breaking plates.  I even think there's a bathtub involved somehow.

Does anybody know what I'm talking about?  I really, really, really want to find out what that song is and who does it, and that video is the only place I know of where I can start my investigation.

This is the site I was thinking about. If you've been Googling, you've probably already been there.

If you click on the Garage Sale link, there's a huge list of cartoons, and there's also a list of Fleischer songs.

You could also email the guy that runs that site. You never know, he might answer.

As far as your chances finding the actual cartoon available online, I wouldn't hold my breath - they get taken down pretty quickly, especially if it's rare.

Nope.  The cartoon was created within the past few years.  It was just made to look like that old vintage style.  The song itself is an oldie though.

I know exactly the video you mean, though, Cookieface.  I might be able to find it elsewhere.  It's definitely pretty recent.

:brainwaves:

I'll keep looking too, and I'll post it if I find it.

The reason I was reminded of it is because I couldn't sleep a couple of nights ago, so I watched Baz Luhrmann's Australia around 5am thinking that would help me doze off.  There's a scene about half an hour into it where Hugh Jackman is driving Nicole Kidman's character to her ranch for the first time.  They're arguing with each other and really faintly in the background, I think that song was playing.  I think the year that particular scene was taking place was 1939.

Maybe I can find that scene on Youtube and see if that'll help.

P.S.  Can you get any info off that link in Canada, Pizza?

The reason I was reminded of it is because I couldn't sleep a couple of nights ago, so I watched Baz Luhrmann's Australia around 5am thinking that would help me doze off.  There's a scene about half an hour into it where Hugh Jackman is driving Nicole Kidman's character to her ranch for the first time.  They're arguing with each other and really faintly in the background, I think that song was playing.  I think the year that particular scene was taking place was 1939.

We only got a half hour into that movie and shut it off. Between the horrendous acting and that racist imitation of an aboriginal accent by the narrator. And the incomprehensible plot. Just utter crap. haha

But I'm glad you at least got to hear your song.

After watching it again, I guess it's done more in sharply contrasted Felix The Cat style rather than Steamboat Willie.

I can't thank you enough, man.  And yeah, Australia wasn't good.  The cinematography was really pretty though.

I called my mom around 7:30 and asked her if she had the Mills Brothers' Sweeter Than Sugar, which is where that sample comes from.  Odds are in my favor.  She was already in bed and didn't want to go downstairs to look.  I told her I'd check in a few days when I'd visit and then I'd take her out to lunch.  She sounded excited as long as there will be onion rings involved.

Fleischer did do a cartoon centered around the Mills Bros (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1ubaa_the-mills-bros-i-aint-got-nobody193_music)., but dammit, there are no crows throwing plates!

Sweeter Than Sugar is not on archive.org, but I had fun listening to some of their other tunes. My dad probably had it on CD or album or maybe even 78. If you can't find it, let me know - I might be able to get it for you. It's listed on some torrents too, but I don't know if they're legit.

Wow, that write-up is genuinely very funny.  I hadn't actually bothered taking a close look at Roxxxy before.  She appears to have been modeled by someone who didn't bother with art class -- she doesn't have enough skull above her eyeline, which is exacerbated by her sheepdog bangs.  (And, I mean, a sex doll should not have "sheepdog bangs".)  She's lazy-eyed and appears to have the mumps . . . or the world's largest jaw muscles.  Either way, that thing's mouth seems like a Bad place for genitals.  Or fingers.  Or favorite pool cues.

I have to admit, their sales pitch of a zombie that likes soccer is not exactly overwhelmingly erotic at best.  :lol:

I love that one of the personalities is described as being for if you're feeling "more ambitious" on a Saturday night.  Feeling more ambitious than having sex with a doll?  Hell, shoot for the stars:  Leave your house.  


Do you know what gets me hot?

Yeah, I left you too close to the radiator.  I did that to Stretch Armstrong once, but hopefully you stand up to the heat better than he did.


Actually, after that it gets too ridiculous to even mock.  :rollin:

Who the fuck needs a robot that says "You have a nice wiener."?  A Marilyn Monrobot might be too much to hope for, but this isn't even a James Monrobot.  Don't expect an Era of Good Feelings.


The SA add-on bits are great but call into question how much of the rest of it is real.  Awesome and plausible either way.

Oh my god, I was at a biology institute one summer, and a bunch of the people there had just recently seen Meatballs for the first time . . . and the first ten times . . . and they quoted it CONSTANTLY FOR LIKE TWO MONTHS.

I still admire that film in certain ways, but I'm not sure I can ever see it again.  Which is convenient, in a way, because Lionsgate is allegedly currently in preproduction of a remake directed by this guy (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0925870/).  (You need IMDb Pro to see it, but you can google if you really want to know more, you glutton for punishment, you.)

Chris Makepeace, he of Rudy fame from Meatballs, has had a weird career.  He did Meatballs and then My Bodyguard (with Jayne, heh heh) and then Mazes and Monsters . . . and then not so much else.  Years ago, there was a persistent rumor that he was originally considered for the lead in Top Gun before Tom Cruise, which is up there for interesting coulda-been lead changes with Total Recall, which was originally going to star Richard Dreyfus and be a much more intellectual SF film before Verhoeven took over.  (I think Dreyfus was headed for the lead when Cronenberg was still planning on directing, but I forget the details by now.)


The cheese snack art is impressive -- it would be even better if he could really do it that fast -- but a few years ago I saw a thing on TV about a woman who makes incredibly realistic life-size statues of people and furniture, etc, entire tableaus, by sticking air-puffed cheese doodles together and then carving / shaping them slightly with her bare fingers.  The results were . . . haunting.  And weird.

Perhaps even more weirdly, she's not the only artist that makes life-size statues out of cheese doodles.  Personally, I'd rather work with chewing gum, but you'd need an armature or a cold room to keep it from falling over.

I, for one, welcome our funky overlords.


Seriously, I totally understand why Dean Kamen hated Battlebots -- although he was basically wrong, since Battlebots is awesome -- but he seems to have utterly failed to comprehend why it was so much more popular than his own robolympic whatevers.  It's not essentially because it was violent.  It's because it had broad appeal. 

Nerds like impressing other nerds, but what they really like is when non-nerds think they're cool.  It's great when someone else who gets the technology admires your sophisticated design, yes, but it's also great when the popular kids suddenly think you're totally awesome because of that same design.  Face it:  The kid who wins the Science Fair is happy, but the kid whose project is the most popular is generally even happier.

And there's no reason why a robot competition, say, can't be both geeky and either useful or cool.  Sometimes all three.  First, you seek to generate widespread interest.  Second, you teach creative problem-solving.  Third, you make it useful.  That's the correct path.  And so dancing or fighting robots are ultimately more educational than rope-climbing or water-carrying robots.

The Japanese get this.  The Honda H2 humanoid robot was technologically phenomenal, but once you've seen it negotiate a flight of stairs twice, you're done with it.  Make a little robot that can't really do much but which can dance or play soccer, though, and you get free press for years.  And the technology is still good technology.

According to Edward Hill (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eduard_Khil) (the singer), he's actually singing in Swedish in that clip.

The song originally had words, but they didn't pass Soviet censors (in 1976, ffs) because they had an American cowboy theme. Hill decided to perform it as a vocalise (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocalise) -- which I suspect happened a lot.

Here is what Hill says about this clip (from the Russian Wiki entry):

"Since the song now had no words, I was able to perform it in any language. In Germany, I told the audience that I will now sing a song in German. They thought I actually would. They waited for the endless "la-la-las" to end through the first verse, then through the second, and by the third they began laughing. In Holland, I announced that I would perform a song in Dutch, and so on. And that particular clip which ended up on the Internet was recorded in Sweden. And that suit I'm wearing in the clip -- I bought it in Sweden."

I say he is full of awesome.

Post by: random axe on March 30, 2010, 05:20:35 PM
If you film enough different cats, you will eventually film a cat that happens to display behavior of whatever kind of possible cat behavior.  It's entirely possible that that cat had a broken jaw -- it's one of the most common injuries cats sustain because when they fall onto a hard surface (like a floor) from a serious height, their heads tend to smack down, and they usually recover from it without serious complications.  But it's not necessarily the case.

I'd also like to say that by the end of the 1800s, a photo taken with bright light often used a shutter speed of a small fraction of a second.  The vintage 'real photo' postcards of cats and kittens and other cute animals?  Those are mostly from 1900-1920, and the vast majority of those are definitely NOT stuffed animals.  That's an urban legend that's been debunked many times.  If it's an exotic animal and looks funny, then, yes, it's probably taxidermy.  But no one was killing and stuffing kittens to make cute postcards.  That would've been ridiculously difficult and expensive and unnecessary.

Hay Mo! (from one old fart to another old fart) That's per-zactly what I planned to do. Ride that thing around the block for at least two weeks gradually getting used to it. After that... I'll graduate myself and ride to town and back. Luke said the first time he gunned it, it almost took off underneath him. Now pass me those vegetables!

I love how some of the kids in the audience look amazed but some of them are just bored to death.  :lol:  Maybe they've seen this five or six times before in rehearsal, or something.

They way he drops down for the low intervals is what impressed me most, since is voice probably isn't done changing.  Well, that and his piano-playing isn't bad, either.

The girls in the back are not the audience, they are sitting on the stage and probably the "chorus" or something. I am guessing you are right with the rehearsal thing.

He has substantially more talent than most of the people on TV and the radio right now. Hope he gets a deal based on this video.

I used to see this all the time, although he's still better than most of the folks I used to see perform, too.  For instance, ADB was in a professional men's a capella group for awhile, one of those groups that just reformed every summer in a touristy area and did a variety of 50s Classics ("In the Still of the Night" and "Sh-Boom", etc), A Capella Classics ("Moondance", etc), and Hey, Now It's A Capella! (Beatles, Seal, Wham).  They were good, but the group was like twelve guys, and in any given incarnation at least ten of them were better than 90% of major professional recording artists.

Of course, a lot of the really professional pros -- the studio artists, backup singers, session musicians, etc -- are way better than the stars.  They just want a job where they get to pick up a paycheck and go home most nights and have a fairly normal life.  But still.  On the rare occasions that I've seen American Idol, I've always thought . . . you people kind of suck.  :lol:  No offense to them.

It always killed me that 90% of the people in those semi-pro groups I used to see weren't interested in music as a career.  It was just a hobby.  Man, if I could sing like that, you'd never shut me up.  Although god knows people try.

Go into pretty much any church in America and you'll find someone with substantially more talent than anybody on the radio and tv right now.

The main ingredient they're looking for in The Business is malleability. You have to be made into something that fits the system. Look at any video of Lady Gaga from even two or three years ago--huge difference in approach (although she is a little more able to somewhat dictate her own terms in the presentation, esp. by now since she's considered a Proven Commodity). It's all about a look, an image, what is your Story.

Talent has even less to do with the process than it ever has though, unfortunately. We can fix it in the mix. Autotune, Melodyne, you can single out any note and correct it. If it was all just on talent, half this board would be famous, heh. Anyway, hopefully this kid keeps going and stays with music; getting a million reblogs and Youtube views and etc. has to be encouraging in that respect though, surely.

(I gave up on American Idol some time ago, when Simon passed on one girl mainly because of her looks; she was a larger sized woman...somebody pointed out that she wasn't sized much differently than Aretha Franklin, and Simon replied that Aretha Franklin wouldn't have made it on the show either. At that point I said, well I have no use for this program then.)

:lol:  To hell with Simon.  Obviously.

There's a lot that's about how manageable you seem to be, too, which has to do with how quickly you'll sign whatever, how easily bought off your parents seem to be, how crazy you are to do whatever in order to be famous, etc.  They don't want to market you at $20 million a year for you to flame out after a year.  Boy bands are genius partly because if one dude flames out or escapes, big deal.  Menudo yourself a replacement.  Performers who will wear what you tell them to wear, sing what you tell them to sing, tour when you tell them to tour, and say the right things at press conferences . . . those are bankable, from a corporate point of view.

The contentious ones tend to do one or two studio-guided albums with a bunch of hits and then go their own way to do 'their' music . . . with less financial success.  Sinead and Alanis leap to mind, although they both had some 'artistic' indie success after doing their own thing, and, yeah, Alanis had an early dance-music career of sorts.  Corporations love one-hit wonders, though.  You don't have to keep dealing with them, their one hit will (until recently) sell a whole album, and you don't have to resign them at favorable terms if you don't think they can do it again without the studio's help.  One hit = fifty million bucks for the company + we throw you away and pick another one.

My brother sent me this:  Private Wojtek, the Soldier Bear (http://www.theawl.com/2010/10/soldier-bear-gets-his-due).

It's about five minutes long but worth it if you want to hear the true story of a small Scottish town's efforts to commemorate a bear (yes, a literal bear) that actually served in the Polish Army during WWII.

I love Poland, but it's often not so hard to see how they lost so many wars.  One bear is not enough bears.

I also like how when the historian says that the other soldiers loved Wojtek's "antics", the video cuts to a photo of him biting a guy's arm.  :lol:

There's a reality show being developed for him, of course. It all happened pretty quickly. Anyways, such is the mercurial nature of modern internet fame I guess.

Someone must find and do unspeakable things to, uh, Bombalurina.  My brain is still trying to punish me for watching to 45 seconds of that.

That's one of the many songs my mother used to sing frequently.  She probably still does.  When we were in high school, my brother mentioned it to a friend of ours, who promptly somehow found a mix tape of a preposterous sort which had a 70s or 80s cover version.  That version had an extra short bridge before the girls start counting, in which Fred's voice pipes up to say "Seven mouths and fourteen hands and fourteen -- " before the girls cut him off.

(That guy and my brother are great at the dubious skill of finding bizarre mix albums, which is how I inherited the How Big Is Your Woofer? album that has an excellent version of the French "The Ballad of Sacco and Vanzetti".) 

The YouTube comments say Fred is "very familiar looking".  Is he?  :shrug:

I'm a little surprised the DHS didn't hit them with a Tomahawk or something.


The 'Pumpkinseed' aircraft that might be the hypersonic thing the USGS occasionally tracks via shockwave is an external combustion design that ejects fuel out the skin of the rear of the craft into the first mach diamond, where it's detonated to provide thrust.  Kind of a shock-limited non-nuclear Orion drive for aircraft.  If it's real.  (The design is real; whether we ever built a working model is unknown / classified.)

I don't usually bother posting links like these, but there aren't usually links like these, and it's fun just to say what it is:  Ellen uses breast vibrator on Jennifer Aniston (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xWcHaRZaMy8).

There's a longer (not better) clip where Ellen explains that she actually bought them for Portia de Rossi's birthday but decided to get her something else, so she gives them to Aniston as a birthday present instead.  

Makes sense.


edit:  I couldn't say if this is necessarily SFW, but it was apparently on Ellen's daytime show, so if you could watch [whatever network she's on] at work, you could have seen it on TV at work.  If you follow me.

As I'm watching, I'm thinking "Hey, I know that guy in the Mary Kay mask." I couldn't place him, so I did a bit of research and found out his name is Aziz Ansari (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aziz_Ansari). Digging through his filmography, I finally found it: Flight of the Conchords.

Which is only like my most favorite show ever.

I gotta be honest (and some of this is just for context):

A)  Flight of the Conchords is utter magic.

B)  I don't think I need to see more of Human Giant.  Throughout that bit, I just kept watching the elastic on the masks and wondering how many retakes were forced by elastic failures.

C)  I love Fifth Element.

D)  But I don't really understand how anyone can like Fifth Element and not like Buckaroo Banzai.  They're not the same, or anything, and they have different tones, and Fifth Element clearly had a much bigger budget ($90 million vs $12 million), but even so.  :shrug:

E)  But my tastes are obviously non-standard.  I mean, for George Lucas feature films, my list would go

1 -  Star Wars
2 -  Raiders of the Lost Ark
3 -  Empire Strikes Back
4 -  Howard the Duck
5 -  (tie) Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
5 -  (tie) Twice Upon A Time
7 -  Labyrinth
8 -  Willow

and after that, whatever.  THAT'S RIGHT.  FOURTH.  THX 1138 frankly never quite holds my attention, and I've never managed to get into American Graffiti.  :shrug:  And Howard may struggle with Howard himself, but Jeffrey Jones is particularly good in it, Tim Robins and Lea Thompson are good in it, it's hugely quotable, and it rolls right along with just a few bumps, which is more than I can say for Willow or the hateful prequels.

Pretty incredible, although he obviously should not be trying to shoot a video with his phone while he's driving.  Oy.

Some fascinating things happening in California having to do with the San Bruno gas explosion (in which people were killed, etc). PG&E is getting reamed, big time. It's apparent they have NO IDEA what the condition of their gas main network is and so they have no idea whether this will happen again. They can't find their inspection records, and apparently some of the pipe locations are unknown or vague. What you're looking at in this video might be similar: a ~60" diameter pipe pumping gas at something like 30 psi. :shock: :bolt:

Edit: ok, it's not Minnegasco any more, it's "Center Point Energy." Wonder how much they paid a consultant to come up with that name. :eyeroll:

I don't think my nerves are that much better.  I think I'm just really tired.

Flatbed passing on the right . . . can't tell if he's doing it cautiously or if he doesn't have enough power to do it quickly.  Possibly the guy with the trailer is going too slowly to be in the lefthand lane.

Person filming . . . first, tailgating stupidly.  That's not even close to being enough following distance at highway speeds under normal conditions -- and lots of people drive that way, but you shouldn't when the vehicle ahead has a trailer (shit happens, after all), or while a big truck is passing on the right.  And you shouldn't be filming with your damned phone while you're driving.  On the highway.  While tailgating.  A vehicle with a trailer.  While a big truck is passing on the right.

Driver's purely lucky that there wasn't a worse accident than that.  Should be banned from using a phone for six months.  :harumph:

I didn't have time to duck. Too fast. Aged reflexes!

I don't think he was following too close. Didn't seem particularly fast. Around here, if you back off any farther than this someone will come around you and fill the space. Every time. People in cars are stupid.

I do feel strongly the trailer should not have been in the left lane ever, period, the end. If the trailer hadn't been there he might have seen the 2x4 and avoided it.

Yeah, MA is like that, too, although there didn't seem to be enough traffic in the video for that to happen.

I agree that people follow that closely all the time -- I've done it, certainly, and most drivers have.  It's too close for safety, though.  I'd say they're going about 45-50 MPH.  If she were fully paying attention, it's not unreasonably unsafe, but she obviously isn't fully paying attention, and she either needed to or need to back off.

At a safer distance from the trailer, the 2x4 still would've been a problem; it still most likely would've been tumbling on the road in her path and might not have been any less of a danger.  Probably less dangerous, but maybe not.  But if that truck that she was so concerned about had veered into the vehicle with the trailer, she would've piled into them, too.  And she would have been at fault for that.

The trailer probably shouldn't be in that lane.  Plus they appear to be going rather slowly for that road.  If there were lots of off-ramps, then it might make sense for that vehicle to be in the left lane, with its lessened ability to brake and the possibility of traffic frequently slowing to exit, yadda yadda.  But for all I can tell the guy with the trailer wanted to get into the righthand lane but saw the flatbed coming.  Or maybe the flatbed waited at the back of the left lane for five minutes before trying to pass on the right.  Can't really guess.

Still, I'd definitely say the woman who's filming with her phone while following too closely is the most negligent driver of the three of them.

Title: Re: a thread for sharing online video
Post by: random axe on April 04, 2011, 07:26:33 PM
If you go to the original video, she explains that she was filming the flatbed because it was a commercial truck that she felt was driving too aggressively, and she wanted to report it.

My complete guess is that it was following her closely while impatiently waiting to use the passing lane to pass, and she naturally didn't like it.  There's a certain measure of irony in the whole thing, but personally I'm just glad I wasn't driving near any of them.

The video ends rather abruptly.  I imagine she was in shock but soon did some cursing.  :lol:  I think it's all real, though.  If you watch it in slow-motion, you can clearly see the 2x4 on the shoulder, being picked up by the trailer's wheel and tossed into the air, etc.

:lol:  The wing is almost just a control surface.  In the 60s, there was a crazy experimental-plane dude who built a 'surfboard' plane that could almost do a standing takeoff and could stay in the air at such low speeds that his assistant could outrun it.  The wing ran longitudinally instead of transversely, with a high angle of attack like that, and a big engine and prop. 

The guy himself didn't understand how his plane could fly -- he just started with a biplane model that had narrow, deep wings and kept exaggerating it, and then lopped off the lower wing to save weight.  The model still worked, so he built a full-size version, and it actually flew.  The wing basically just trapped the high-pressure wash from the prop at low speeds, almost like a Flarecraft, and the prop was strong enough to pull the thing upward. 

Slow and low, you get wing-in-ground-effect keeping you up; higher and faster, you've got a powerful angled surface moving into and up the airstream. 

That kid's Super Cub is probably a far better plane, to say nothing of more useful -- to say nothing of more stable in a crosswind.  Pretty cool.  Imagine if it were a channel wing biplane, too.  It might go up and backward when he started the prop . . . .

Another Wired article (http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/05/hazardfactory-fire-arts/) led me to this guy's youtube account. I'd kinda like to hang out with this guy. From a distance.

I'm not sure exactly what he's trying to do here (the Wired article explains it, but i don't really care), but FIRE + ELECTRICITY = GOOD (http://www.youtube.com/user/hazardfactor#p/u/0/xKFiZhhx3Vo)

Well, the Wired article won't load for me, and YouTube is slow as death right now, but I watched the first one.  He . . . seems to be mucking about, is what he's doing.  :lol:  From what he says, I can't tell how much he understands what he's doing.

A flame itself is basically hot plasma.  Plasma is basically a gas in which a lot of the molecules have been broken into ions -- the molecules get split up, and the electrons get divided unevenly between the pieces.  So some of the ions are positive, and some are negative, and as a result plasmas are very responsive to electromagnetic fields.  They also conduct electricity.  

(The conduction of electricity is a lot more complicated than they usually say -- sometimes it's just moving electrons, sometimes it's electropotential, sometimes it's a flow of ions, sometimes it's the motion of polarons, which are quasi-particles of electrons or something.  I honestly don't understand it.)

Anyway, so, you can do all kinds of weird things to plasma using electricity.  With his transformer, that's what he's doing.  I can't tell how he's manipulating the fire with the speakers, but I think he's just using the speakers to compress the gas flow -- noise compresses whatever it travels through.  They have awesome ultrasonic compressors and pumps nowadays, in fact, which they keep threatening to put into consumer refrigerators, etc.

Unless someone else does it first, it'll probably occur to him to hook the music output to the transformer, and then he ought to get a more pronounced effect of the type he seems to want.

He should choose a simpler music sample, though.  The theme to Close Encounters seems about right to me.

Guys, guys, come on.  A baler will kill you.  This is some viral ad for something.  The camera work is too perfect, and the bale the guy is wearing is much smaller than the other bales previously pooped out by the machine.

"Every town had at least a couple farmers who'd lost a finger or two in jammed hay balers, when the mechanism had started again suddenly and grabbed them. And they were the lucky ones, because they'd managed to get their pocket knives out, open them with their teeth, and amputate the fingers before their entire arms got pulled in. A hay baler could kill a man, and occasionally did, somewhere. (http://brandywinebooks.net/?post_id=3797)"

That was my thought, too.  The first half of that made me rather nervous.

I've told this story before, but:  When I lived in Oxford, we used to go down to the farm machinery rental place and gawk at the warning stickers on the balers and threshers and whatnot.  The machines themselves are very cool when they're not running.  But the warning stickers are awesome, showing the little silhouette guy being horribly destroyed in ways Tom Savini can only dream about.  The silhouette has no face and yet still manages to convey unearthly dismay and terror.  :eek:

Birds:  They're not like mammals.

Attenborough had an awesome film of a bird sitting in a bush in Africa.  The wind was blowing intermittently, and the bush was swaying all over the place, but the bird kept its head perfectly still while its body was pogoing all over the place.

Bird higher neurological functions are really different from mammalian brain function.  I often figure there must have been a whole range of neurological (and probably metabolic) diversity among dinosaurs, from slow-reptile to fast-reptile to crocodilian to bird.  The fast-reptile dinosaurs must've been impressive, but the bird-brained ones were probably fearsome as hell.  Even for dinosaurs.

I also suspect most dinosaurs had really variable metabolisms, like a crocodile crossed with a goanna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goanna), and maybe even moreso.  When there's nothing that needed its attention, the average dinosaur was probably somewhere between cow and statue on the metabolic chart, but when it needed to go, I bet it went.

And like with birds today, guessing how 'smart' they were is a total crapshoot.  Birds tend to have excellent processing power for a few key tasks, and they just don't bother with much else.  They're weird fluffy robots.

You've never met a raven, then. Unless by "robot" you mean something like Ash (http://www.solarnavigator.net/films_movies_actors/film_images/alien_nostomo_parker_ripley_ash.jpg).
Title: Re: a thread for sharing online video
Post by: random axe on August 10, 2011, 12:26:01 PM
Yes, but Ash was so much better behaved in Fifth Element.

Ravens are totally robots.  Even crows are, although their programming is a trifle wonky.  That experiment with raven problem-solving skills from a couple of years ago is a perfect example.  Young ravens experiment with random actions when trying to solve a puzzle.  Mature ravens just look at the puzzle . . . and think . . . and then try the correct solution on their first attempt.

That is an utterly computer-like approach.  They clearly apply previous experiences to thought-experiments and rotate through until they find a working solution.  The mature ravens didn't mess about at all.  Just look, think, solve.  Only if it's a puzzle they can't solve will the mature ravens start messing with it, trying to see if there's something they haven't learned yet that will help.

Chimps don't do that.  Children don't do that.  Dolphins don't do that.  Even adult humans virtually never do that unless they're given a specific reason to.

I'm not putting them down by calling them robots.  It's only the proliferation of ugly humanocentric fetishes that makes me dread the day that sexy robots for dating become prevalent.

I'm usually the last to see these things, and this could be one of those times, but:

Sophia Grace and Rosie perform Super Bass (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7hTAp6KrGY).

The person who showed me this had to show me the original first.  I had heard of Nicki Minaj but didn't know she was a singer or, in fact, a woman.  :shrug:

There's a lot of Sophia Grace and Rosie out there, but this is the best distillation, to me.

There's a decent video of them running around the Grammy Museum, commenting in mad little-kid fashion on everything, and Sophia randomly singing clips of songs when she recognizes an artist.

It's cute if it's a phase.  If they're thirteen and, uh, what, ten or whatever, and still running around in fairy dresses doing this schtick, then there's something very wrong.  But I wouldn't still be watching anyway.  I think I've already gotten to the enough-of-that bit.

It did make me wonder if the book-of-kittens girl has done any other videos, but not to the extent that I went looking for them.

You start off feeling that way, but if you have an infestation, you get between one and four flying around crazily in the house all night, shrieking like whistles with static, three to five nights a week.

And while you're sleeping, the cat brings an injured one to your pillow so you, too, can learn to hunt bats.

The sympathy level starts to drop a bit.  I'm still inordinately fond of bats, but not inside the house.

Yep yep yep.  My brother frequently has to go into either crawlspace (his house has two) for some home-repair thing, and he has to be careful not to disturb the bats.  He finally had to go into the attic for something, and he told me he was surprised at how little guano and how few dead bats there were up there.

We were prepared for the worst.  Naturally, I already own an ABC jumpsuit, and I'd offered to loan it to him, but he went in with just goggles and a breathing mask.  Frankly, the brave part was opening the hatch to the attic.  He wisely waited for a time when my SIL and niece would not be home . . . or home soon.  Just in case.

I thought you had to have a bell for it to be a belfry.  I really don't know.

West Nile, or something, wiped out virtually all the crows up in these parts.  But after about a five-year hiatus, they're starting to come back. 

Actually, this area is pure madness for birds.  At ALL times of year, you'll see arrows of geese flying in any given direction.  Probably including up and down.  Frequently you can see more than one group, headed in different directions.  This is like the Delta hub of Canadian goose migration.

Danger is the one with the spots, Ginger is all white with pink eyes (albino). Danger is a Rex, which is a breed of rabbit specifically developed to be coats. They were bred to make their top coats of fur shorter than the layer of underfur - when you pet them all you feel is undercoat and the teeny top coat makes them unbelievably plush.

I am pretty sure Ginger is a Florida White - a strain with highly predictable genetics and consistency that is frequently used in lab work. Apparently it is difficult to place the whites because people are creeped out by their eyes. Ironically, the whites have some of the sweetest and most docile personalities. Ginger will jump up onto the couch and into my lap for pets. She will also seek out pets from anyone who sits still for more than 5 minutes and demonstrates they are not an axe murderer.

Eh, shift songs into same key, many will have the same chords.  Only so many basic harmonies in the octave system, twelve notes per octave.  Music people can explain this better than I can. 

I haven't heard a lot of those songs, which was the funniest part of it to me.  Alphaville, though.  :thumbsup:

i don't know if any of the songs were altered to fit, but it's no big deal that songs have the same chord progression. some common ones: blues (http://www.music.vt.edu/musicdictionary/appendix/blues/bluesprogression.html"), the I- vi- IV - V - I progression (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sw06XolOIA), a "chain" sequence (which can be a series of suspensions) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_progression), etc. There are many commonly used chord progressions.

you can switch the key and still have the same progression, for example:

I - V - vi - IV - I in Cmajor is : C - G - a minor - F - C
I - V - vi - IV - I in E-flat major is : Eb - Bb - c minor - Ab - Eb

and yet, it still sounds like the same progression (unless you are sensitive to absolute pitch).

Title: Re: a thread for sharing online video
Post by: TFJ on April 09, 2012, 12:08:43 PM
(given the clamor of calls for further explanation):

different modes have the same functional progression but  the chords are of different quality. for example: iv chord in d minor (the saddest of all keys) is minor. however, in d Dorian, (the second saddest but most used in Spaghetti Westerns), it's Major. it's also common to borrow a chord quality from another mode, such as the beloved minor iv used in major mode.

etc. ad nauseum. etc etc.

Somewhere, somehow, Pythagoras has a hardon.


When I was a kid, we had a sweet-ass electric organ (:uncertain:), and then later a piano, because my parents were masochists.  Anyway, we learned to play a few tunes by ear, mostly church music, and we quickly noticed how the octave moves up the keyboard.  Once you know how it goes, you can shift one key over -- almost -- and play the same tune slightly higher or lower.  All the way up or down until you run out of keys.

Years later, when I was in vocal training, dude would say 'now a half-step higher' or 'now a half-step lower', and I was like OMG I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.  :lol:  Although I could never sight-read for shit.

Chords make sense differently to people who sing harmony or play one-note-at-a-time instruments, I think.  Piano or guitar, you get chords by yourself.  Voice (mostly), horns, etc, you need three people for a regular chord.  And then you're like, wait, that musical sting was a chord broken into its pieces and played in sequence.  Weird.

I wish I had learned to play an instrument back in the day, but I was always fascinated by the strange old ones that are less refined, or simple primitive ones.  Pianos and guitars and the complex modern horns and woodwinds are more fascinating to me than the electronics, mostly, because they're so accomplished.  The range of music you can play on a guitar is staggering, and stringed instruments hundreds of years ago may look kind of similar but couldn't do as much.  Same deal with the piano.

The comments are sometimes good, too.



edit:  Full disclosure compels me to add context.  Years ago, I had a friend who did a capella covers of classic rock songs by recording the parts sequentially.  They were both terrible and awesome, but they often went on too long.  Always the way.  But "crap-a-zoo" might be funnier to me because of that.

Almost.  When I see cricket, I'm always like, OK, he's bowling, dude hit it, did the wicket get hit?  Now they're running!  They're running!  Is that because someone did something right or because someone did something wrong?

Oops, they stopped.  Guy's walking back to the pitch, or whatever it's called.  Molesworth says it's humiliating, so that must mean he did something wrong.

Not long ago I was reading that article by Teller about how stage magic works, and one of the major things is that you have to set something up that's enough trouble to set up so that most people will assume something impossible is happening rather than assume you spent a disproportionate amount of time setting it up.  The brain would rather guess that it's magic than that someone spent six days figuring out the best angles, etc.

- How it can't leave the thing alone.  This is why dogs come home with a nose full of porcupine quills.

- There's always something hilarious about a dog wiping its nose to try to get rid of an odor.  It's just too anthropomorphic.

If you look down at the bottom of the video where you have the like/dislike button, share button, and flag button, there is also a interactive transcript button.

Post by: random axe on October 01, 2012, 08:33:59 PM
This seems like the least important nerdy thing of the last week or so, but the song is Gangnam Style (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gangnam_Style), and Psy refers to himself as "oppa", which is Korean for "big brother".

However, further googles reveal that the net is divided as to whether he says "oppa gangnam style" or "oppan gangnam style", this being some Korean grammatical difference that whatever . . . apparently it's the difference between 'Big brother is gangnam style' and 'Big brother's [possessive] gangnam style'.  Maybe.

WTF . . . how long ago did the song come out?  Wikipedia says Nelly Furtado and Maroon 5 already released covers.  Let the body cool.

Maybe what I should have said was, I don't understand why someone would play the ukelele like a guitar. I do like the ukelele, I just don't quite get what Jake there is doing. It seems kind of gimmicky.

Some guy did a whole album of Black Sabbath / Ozzy covers performed with just his voice and the ukelele.  I had a free MP3 of "Paranoid", which was surprisingly good, but it didn't make me bother to try to get the album, or anything.

I was . . . tempted . . . to get the Luther Wright & The Wrongs bluegrass cover of The Wall, but they did the whole damned thing.  Five or ten tracks, OK, but over two dozen tracks and it starts to wear a little thin, I think.

The youtube videos for "flakka" are pretty terrifying. Flakka is a chemical variation of the bath salt drug. There was an article in the local paper about how the drug was moving into this area, and how bad the drug was, so I did a search on youtube and watched a few of the videos. It seems to create a total disconnect. Several of the users appeared to be kind of pinned down to the ground, like their world was spinning really fast. One was trying to walk and appeared to be bouncing off a force field, or stuck in some kind of motor malfunction loop. It's pretty sad, but I think it's important to see the videos to be able to recognize the symptoms. You might be tempted to help someone if you weren't aware of what it was, and trying to help them could be dangerous.

his stage name comes from an unlikely place: the Muppet Babies. The animated series, which aired from the mid-1980s to the early 90s included a character, Fozzie, who was recognized for the catchphrase, "Waka, waka, waka."

"Yeah, I've got a Fozzie chain, 'cause when I was younger, me and my cousin used to watch it and he started calling me "Waka." The moniker "Flame," he says, was added by Gucci Mane.
