Rest

Another new video, I really like this one. It will take up almost 16mb of hard drive space, and just over three minutes of your attention:

Pewter Dachshund has bad-assedly written a soundtrack to complete this video, which appeared in a similar form here before (with a found soundtrack by Signal). I’ve submitted this for consideration in the Sarasota Film Festival… if accepted, it would play in their music video shorts program in April.

It was fun putting this together– I’m sure it was a challenge to make a soundtrack to an already-existing piece of video, especially when I pretty much didn’t want to make any cuts in the piece, but rather to have it flow along, evolving.

This is not really a cohesive “thing” per se, just an experiment I’m happy with. The cuts to purple are where I edited out parts that didn’t make me so happy. Lo siento, no music.

Here’s a recent video… I’ve been making lots using an object that gives me a grid of squares to play with. The music is “Sporett” from Signal’s latest album, Robotron

are you there, Moriarty?

We’re having fun making spazportraits. Would anyone want to make a soundtrack for this?


are you there, Moriarty?

Are you there Moriarty? is a parlour game in which two players at a time participate in a duel of sorts. Each player is blindfolded and given a rolled up newspaper (or anything that comes handy and is not likely to injure) to use as a weapon. The players then lie on their backs head to head with about three feet of space between them – or in other versions hold outstretched hands, or stand holding hands as in a handshake. The starting player says “Are you there Moriarty?”. The other player, when ready, says “Yes”. At this point the start player attempts to hit the other player with his newspaper by swinging it over his head. The other player then attempts to hit the starting player with his newspaper. The first player to be hit is eliminated from the game and another player takes his place. The objective of the game is to remain in the game as long as possible.

There is a small amount of strategy to the game. In order to avoid being hit, each player may roll to one side or the other. The decision of which direction to roll, or whether to roll at all often determines whether the player is hit by his opponent. A player who can quickly roll out of the way after speaking or striking will have a definite advantage in the game. However, like most parlor games, the appeal of this game largely lies in its spectacle and humor rather than its strategy.

Technically, it’s autumn now… the daily thunderstorms and ridiculous humidity here in Florida indicate otherwise, however. Here’s a new, I quite like its progression. I love it when people leave comments and feedback…
