M.I.A.'s "Illygirl" vs. "The Book of Eli" [Aug. 8th, 2010|11:10 am]
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , ]

This is my favorite scene from "The Book of Eli". I think this is the best thing I have ever seen Mila Kunis do. Anyway, I thought it would be cool to set it to the song, "Illygirl", from M.I.A.'s new album, "MAYA".

M.I.A. - URAQT (Diplo Mix) from Piracy Funds Terrorism, vol. 1 [Sep. 20th, 2009|07:44 pm]

This video of the Piracy Funds Terrorism, vol. 1, version of "URAQT" (which is pretty much the same version that is on Arular) came out better than some of my other videos. I know this song is old, but I am trying to complete my PFT Playlist on YouTube.

Goldfrapp vs. Mission Impossible [Jun. 14th, 2009|08:23 pm]

[mood |busybusy]

Once again, I had too much time on my hands. I was listening to a remix of Goldfrapp's "Train" called "El Train (T. Raumschmiere Remix), and I thought how cool it would be to play the song along with an action scene on a train. Then, I realized there was already an action scene that existed that would probably go pretty well with the song. Here is the ending scene from Mission Impossible ("You've never seen me very upset") set to the song.

Funny scene from Waiting For Guffman ... [Jun. 10th, 2009|10:31 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

"You know I want to try that less-is-more kind of acting where you just ... when you're talking to someone, you close your eyes, and then you look at them, when you're not talking to the person, I mean you open your eyes when you're looking away, but then when you talk to the person you go like that and you open your eyes and you look back at the person, but you never open your eyes when you're talking to them."

I love Catherine O'Hara's lines in this scene from "Waiting For Guffman".

Reead - Baby
They should put this on YouTube. It would get more views. There is something so old-fashioned about Daily Motion's website.

M.I.A. and Rosetta@home video - screensaver that analyzes proteins to find cures for diseases [Mar. 8th, 2009|08:35 am]
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ]
[Current Location |Austin, TX]
[mood |awakeawake]
[music |who else?]

I use this screensaver called BOINC that is associated with Rosetta@home, a project where the power of thousands (or millions?) of people's computers is used to analyze proteins that may lead to cures for Alzheimer's, HIV, cancer, diabetes, etc., one day. I know it is a pretty lofty goal, but I think it is possible. Anyway, I long ago made a team for the project called M.I.A.

The teams compete in a way to see who can get the most credits (you have leaderboards just like you do for videogames). I have been pretty lazy about recruiting people for my team, but I thought it would be worth trying to do a little recruitment so I made a video for my team M.I.A. The music is not a remix ... it is just a collection of lyrics from most of M.I.A. songs (a few songs got left out so I think there will be a second video soon).

Here is the propaganda video ;) ...

I thought it would be neat to set clips from the movie, Firestarter, to the song, Firestarter. My lousy video editor totally crashed on me so the video that was supposed to be 4-5 minutes long is only 2 minutes long. YouTube wouldn't allow me to upload it since there are way too many copyright infringements going on in it. I uploaded it to Viddler instead. Here is what survived the crash ...

Tegan and Sara - Call It Off (youtube video) [Nov. 9th, 2008|01:56 pm]

I really, really love this song and video. There is something so minimalist about the presentation. I love how most of the video is white, but the colors of the cables add just the right contrast. I know Tegan and Sara have been around forever, but I think this song is going to get them noticed a little more. I can't back that statement up with facts. It's just a feeling I get.

Obama in Red and Blue [Oct. 7th, 2008|07:38 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , , ]
[mood |optimisticoptimistic]
[music |I am about to watch the debates on CNN]

Here's a little video I made with my video editor. It's an image of Obama that I have always really liked set to the song, "Rhapsody in Blue", by George Gershwin (conducted by Leonard Bernstein). I used to listen to "Rhapsody in Blue" on a record player, and there is something quintessentially American about the song so I thought it would go well with an image of our next president. I couldn't upload the video to YouTube because it is more than 10 minutes long (Damn you and your time limits, YouTube!). I was able to upload it to Google Video, though (and Google owns YouTube so that makes no sense).





I am pretty sure this Barack Obama image comes from Frank Shepard Fairey, whose website is Obey Giant. I think this image will be in history textbooks one day.

Here is a larger version of the image ...



I think it is weird how the button on the right side looks like it has a little face in it.

On Vox: Katie Couric interviews Sarah Palin (and it is awkward) [Sep. 25th, 2008|06:22 am]

[music |I'm watching KVUE]

Sarah Palin comes across as a moron in this interview. Couric comes across as intelligent and tough. Not bad!

Katie Couric shows how much of a tool Sarah Palin is

I think John McCain is trying to cancel the presidential debates so that they can be rescheduled to take place when the VP debates were supposed to take place. I think he realizes that Palin needs way more prep time before she is involved in a live debate. McCain probably needs more prep time, himself.

You can also watch the interview at CBS.com ...

IMDB.com, a website I go to all the time to help me remember what star was in what movie/TV show, and how to spell someone's name, now has free videos to watch. You can watch entire movies for free. I know you have to at least watch on advertisement before the movie starts, but that's not too bad. One of the movies you can watch is Xanadu ...
