Title: Cool Vids (Keep it Clean)
Post by: Crafty_Pat on November 14, 2007, 11:16:15 PM
Someone turned me on to this really nice Metal Gear Solid vid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaDSpp8evVk&feature=related), which made me think: "You know, there's probably tons of this sort of stuff out there that the Crafty gang are into. Let's share."

So... lets. :)

The hard part I have posting to these threads is finding stuff one of us hasn't linked to yet.

"Invincible" by Muse (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_5V8We3hgg).  I'm assuming everyone's seen the "Knights of Cydonia" vid.

A collection of the best bits (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4ozqhaFh2Y) from AMV Hell 3.  How this clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDpMe0HCW2o) didn't make it is a gorram crime.

I'm afraid Pat might make this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7EONScLrHg) the Crafty staff theme song.  (Sorry, my YouTube search-fu is only good for finding AMV's)

I get the feeling we've actually shared Disney Gone Evil (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcbazH6aE2g) here, but it's still pretty funny.

Yeah, I found it while looking for her Christmas classic Santa Baby (1953) (http://youtube.com/watch?v=VuHliYkFd94).

Eartha Kitt is perhaps more famous as Catwoman on the old Batman television series. (She was my favorite of the ladies who have taken that role.... :)  )

Basically, this is a non-age restricted forum so there could be people clicking on these links who are somewhat younger than you or I. So, nothing to explicit, violent (except maybe cartoon violence, maybe), or vulgar - plus anything your Mom would have disapproved of you watching when you were younger.

Edit -> Uh oh, turns out the video was taken down for copyright infringement... :o The sad part is that it is easily available by recording it on TV, but somehow sharing it on the internet is a crime?  ???

And a blast from the past: Raymond Briggs' The Snowman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ponB8Hd_lG4). A half hour animated musical story of a boy and a snowman who comes to life. My family had this on VHS when I was a kid and it got watched a lot. Warning, the video is 27 minutes long, but worth every minute.

This guy's stuff is some of the best I've seen on YouTube as far as original content. It takes the Mac/PC commercials and uses Marvel/DC action figures.

This is the first one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av6fWfmugds) of about six or seven... the best one is villain version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnHHDzQ4Axw) between Lex Luthor and the Green Goblin.

Then he starts a series of which the characters in both universes hang out in a bar (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q_taep3ElI).

The Green Goblin even has his own blog (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0uMwUsa834).

I also have to recommend The Mother of All Trailers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q_taep3ElI).

And for some reason I can't get this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceSxEjwXHcM) and (of course) the girl out of my head. If you watch this video and you play World of Warcraft, you'll notice her dance style is duplicated for the female Night Elves.

If you like Tom search for Tom Waits For No One on YouTube, I won't give the link here because it's slightly NSFW. It's an animated short shot in 1979 that was never released. David Silverman, producer and director of the Simpsons TV series, and director of the NEW Simpsons movie to be released in July of 2007, was the head animator and also his FIRST job as an animator!

Many, many years ago one of my favorite computer games was M.U.L.E. a game of colonizing an alien world - while competitive if one player went broke then the entire colony would fail. An odd mix of competition and cooperation.

One of the tools you relied on was a robotic mule, tough, versatile, and cantankerous.... looks like someone finally built one! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1czBcnX1Ww) While funny, the way the thing keeps its balance is nothing short of amazing.

Mr Roger's speech to the Senate subcommittee in 1969 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXEuEUQIP3Q) about why PBS shouldn't lose any of their funding. In the process he gives a standoffish Senator goosebumps and, more or less, saves the network.

NO joke. Funny. I dearly love Silent Running but somehow I've never seen the video before. It spoke to me as a storytelling song, of course - how could it not? - but I'd always envisioned some kind of Red Dawn or Amerika scenario, not a Flight of the Navigator thing.

Amerika, BTW - unbelievably kick-ass, but good luck finding a copy. :( They sooo need to release it on DVD...

I can't post it but for those who have iTunes, you can download the graphic novel's 1st chapter in animated panel form. They basically took each panel added some camera movement, made some the characters and scenery move plus threw a monotone voiceover on it (which throws you to her NiteOwl and Silk Spectre talking under the same voice). But it is really cool and needs to be seen.

On a cool sie note, you can also get all three episodes of Dr. Horrible as well for $3 while the Watchmen are free.

I'm not sure if this belongs here or the TV section, but...

Funimation is streaming Gainax's fall season show Shikabane Hime: Aka (http://www.hulu.com/shikabane-hime?c=Animation-and-Cartoons/Anime). It's currently running about four weeks behind the Japanese broadcast. Episode 1 is up, and I'm guessing it will update with a weekly schedule. You'll need to make an account with Hulu.com since it's TV-MA, and sit through some commercials during the stream.

The show is about a undead girl who is driven to hunt down and destroy 108 other undead so she can get into heaven. It sounds cliche, but it's fairly engaging. I caught the first two episodes as fansubs before the liscense was announced, and they were moody and dark with just a hint of slapstick humor to brighten the 'normal life' parts. It's also part of the minority of Gainax shows that are not... bouncy.

The second episode is more interesting as it give a little more background on, well, everything. It's also a little less slap-stick and a good bit darker.

I guess the main difference with NZ is that video is from NZ's main (well, oldest) TV channel, not a local-only station.

I think my favourite segment was when one of the roving reporters got sent to a facility where he got to drive a tank and crush some cars. Good stuff.

LOL! We have a local L.A. reporter who does everything she can to offer sexual spin. She booked an interview at a glass-blowing facility, for example, so she could get away with all the associated innuendo. She's constantly ducking down to pick things up off-camera, positioning her head in... questionable spots in the frame. It's pretty funny.

It's a shame videos like this aren't made for airplay on MTV or VH1, unless the song is performed by some underage, overdeveloped blonde-haired girl (or is that CMT or GAC?) or it has about 20 women shaking their booty endlessly (BET requires that there must be 40 booty shakers).

My new favorite band (Within Temptation)... this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VK9qfVQ4Z04) just rocks.

Right? I stumbled onto WT around Christmas 2007 (http://www.crafty-games.com/node/483) and I've been obsessive about them ever since. They're not on tour just now and they don't play U.S. shows - that I know of - but you better believe I'll catch them at some point. Take a look at that Black Symphony footage. That's a weepingly good concert experience right there!

And you're absolutely on the money about that Angel vid - it's remarkable. Better than many games I've played. Hell, better than a lot of games I've run! ;)

Here's their video for Stand My Ground: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=4sCkAvh50Vs&feature=channel

This one reminds me of Surface. Loved that show.

They opened for Lacuna Coil two years ago as part of "The Hottest Chicks in Metal Tour 2007".  One of the dates was in Santa Monica.

I reserve Pandora for multi-day, hyperfocused work events (e.g. writing research papers in my grad program). I throw on some channel that works well for me as background music (e.g. Massive Attack) and let my ADD and Pandora frolic along together -- leaving me alone long enough to get stuff done.

Umm.. fast jerky cuts don't make the movie shorter, they just make it harder to follow. And it WAS the shortest Bond movie made.

Really?  When I was watching it, it seemed to take forever.

And I'd have to disagree in part, fast jerky cuts may make a movie shorter.  A few quick flashes of 2 cars moving to indicate a car chase takes much less time than actually showing the whole car chase.

But then, maybe making some of the scenes longer, and actually enjoyable, may have made the movie seem shorter in the end.

The Auld Grump

I'm willing to give Robert a chance, I mean when I heard he was to play Tony Stark, it was sort of, well it could work.

If you look at some of the "reimaging" that has gone on lately over the past few years, there have been some really cool ones done. Casino Royale, Batman Begins, Star Trek (from what I'm hearing).  So as I said, I'll wait to see, if it does finally look like a load of cr*p... I'll admit I was wrong. ( yes I know there have been bad reimaging as well)

I don't count "reboots" done as comedies as really a reboot,  which is why things like Dukes of Hazaard and Charlies Angels annoy me to no end.

That being said, if they are going more true to the literary Holmes, I think he could pull it off.  But my memory of reading the stories as been awhile, I may have to do that soon to refresh my memory.

Not sure, but this really goes to show someone is really out of touch.   I can understand wanting to broaden your audience, but a name change ain't it and that ad, although nice looking, leaves me wondering.   Reminds me of my advertising class going over wonderful ads that were memorable in execution, just not for the company they were for.

I think the demo they're trying to target is 'people who wouldn't normally watch SciFi'. That clip came across as more like something from a tween network, and didn't give you much of an idea of the sorts of shows you should expect to see on the network.

If they went with something about half the length, a more upbeat and punchier song, with more interactions between the different shows, and burnt the origami unicorns it would be a bit better. There was potential here, they just forgot who the target market really is.

I'd have to go digging, but the president has said she wants to change the perception of the network from one watched by sci fi fans to one watched by cool people and to distance the network and it's programming from science fiction in general. I believe there was a comment in there about us being annoying, although in her defense she didn't call us dorks or losers. In public anyway.

I love the two blade runneresque synth stabs at 0:10 and 0:12 before the full horror of the song is unleashed. Then it goes all Neo-hippie - and I thought they and their kids were the target demographic 10-15 years ago, I certainly remember being in school with a few.

Does anyone remember the name of the song -- it'd be maybe 5 - 10 years ago by now I think -- which as its video clip the singer ina  room with a giant tentacle plant singing it a love love song as a SWAT team attempt to "rescue" her from it?

Not that I'll be able to look until I get home... I have a suspicion that the results for a search on "tentacle love song" would not pass the filter at the office.

Actually it probably will if you do it on Google.  Between love songs and tentacle songs, you're really ok, except maybe the wape woll (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvBZof6rKGU), but that's Ghastly and his band, so what sort of roll did you expect?

It was kinda ballady, vaguely Beth Orton meets original-flavour Goldfrapp. I caught the clip a couple of times on the late night music video show, and all the talk aboit Orangina ads just brought it back to mind.

I'm guessing that Aug 22, 21, and 24 are also from the same movie, so it's set in WW2 and probably made in the late 60's or 70's.

I followed a hunch, and it looks like it is The Inglorious Bastards (http://snarkerati.com/movie-news/files/2008/06/inglorious-bastards.jpg) (aka Dangerous Mission aka GI Bro) from 1978.

When traveling back home from my game I was once accosted by a police officer, who wanted to know why I was walking along carrying a pistol case at two in the morning. (I find that pistol cases are very useful for carrying my miniatures, I have about a dozen big pistol cases, and no pistols. :P )

I opened the case, showing him the miniatures.

The next week the cop accosted me again... he wanted to show the miniatures to his partner, who gamed. :) He ended up hiring me to paint a couple of miniatures for him.

If all the referees pay as much as attention as the ones in that match, I agree with you. She could probably shank the whole opposing team and get a yellow card, at most :)

As a sports writer, this sort of behavior is entirely new to me (The hair pulling included).

The problem in Lambert's case is that the refs are human, and they may have been a bit star struck by her. I see it happen all the time. A big-time player can get away with all kinds of stuff, but if a lesser-known guy tries to pull the same stunt, he'll get called on it.

A few years ago, around this time,  I wet around from site to site, spreading the Christmas joy of Santa Clause Conquers the Martians.

This year, I am spreading the joy of Santa Clause vs. Satan! (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xnrj2_santa-claus-versus-satan-1_fun) - like Santa Claus Conquers the Martians I was privileged (?) to see this film in the theater. The real title is K. Gordon Murray's Santa Claus. K. Gordon Murray got his start with cheap, imported X rated films, then found his niche - in cheap, imported, G rated children's movies!

Nevertheless - do not let your children see this one! Else you will scar thm for life! (No, it is not raunchy, just very, very bad! I love this movie. It is every bit as enjoyable as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. :P )

Daily Motion has split it into many smaller pieces, and slapped a parental warning on it, raunch or no raunch, this movie can destroy Christmas!

One of the most famous surface currents is the one in the North Atlantic.

Went to Phoenix ComiCon and had a good time talking to a variety of celebs. I know you can find on youtube some of the following videos or video clips:

James Marsters panel, which is in small pieces, where he discusses being in the Hawaii 5-0 pilot, playing Barnabas on Caprica, why Lady MacBeth is not really a bitch, kissing on set, doing stunts, working with Joss and on Buffy, etc.

Wil Wheaton's Rock Band party where he stays on stage as 3 newcomers each time come up to join him playing Rock Band. You will find clips of him with the Arizona Ghostbusters singing Ghostbusters, him singing both Living On A Prayer, and Lady Gaga's Pokerface (with backup dancers John Scalzi and Felicia Day).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8w3TeuOZD0
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GWEAybccLU

Plus, the 7 part video series of the Star Trek panel with Wil Wheaton, Levar Burton and Jon Frakes (who declares that it is unusual for him to be the 3rd funniest guy on the panel). This one was hilarious to attend. There were loads of inside jokes: Patrick Stewart drinking, what it means "to Riker" someone/thing and more than a couple of references to some one time guest stars including Wil referencing Ashley Judd by saying "Uncle Wil wrecked her."

If memory serves, I found them as freebies on a DJ site years ago.

I'll keep an eye out and if I see any more of her stuff online, I'll post about it.

Thanks. I may have to get into the whole Russian music scene. My favorite composers are mainly Russians and I also dig their folk music. So, it would make sense that some of the music would appeal to me.

Nope.  CIA and FBI are still "independent," but DHS has a rightly reviled agencies under its purview (TSA).  FEMA seems to be suspiciously absent from DHS.  FEMA is another agency that is not held in high esteem that is part of DHS.

Can you say 'threats with intent' three times against a court official - potentially there's 10 years if the judge is in a bad mood.

How about 'contempt of court'? Several times too! Possibly up to 2 years added on.

If you listen, she also changes his plea to 'no contest', so these 12 years are in addition to whatever she drops on him for the primary offence (he reeks of domestic violence). As I said - one dumb bastard.

That they had the balls to linger on the shock and pain of those who find [REDACTED] after [REDACTED] is a testament to the strength of their convictions in telling their story, their way.

Agreed (about the BSG bit).

The worse back-to-back ad placement I heard over the radio led off with an ad about a memorial and funeral service provider (talking about dignity and respect) followed by an ad about a meat processor and taxidermy business.

Octonauts is awesome, though I do slightly prefer the books to the animated series.
My daughter however prefers the animations, so it's all good.

It's an internet Film Festival for short films of no more than 3.30 minutes. 800 shorts have been submitted this year. Mine is competing in a minor category as well as the main one, Starlight, where there're less participants (about 40).

It's subtitled in english, so wont have problem there.

Watching this magnificent tribute to Doctor Who's very long history (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhkGVBNpLT8), I'm reminded once again how much I would have loved to see Paul McGann take up the mantle in more televised outings - under an able showrunner, of course. That never could have happened at the time, and if it had we probably wouldn't have the wonderful series we enjoy today, but still, I will always wonder what glorious, zany glee he might have brought to the role.

Lady Gaga's "Born That Way"... which borrows some major rifts from Madonna's "Express Yourself" for the chorus. It does come across like one of his "B" sides, if there's a music video for it later, it'll be epic.

Giant Globe OLED Display Geo-Cosmos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwIvYwJXObc)

Japanese Museum Unveils A Giant Globe Made of 10,000 Live-Updating OLED Panels

If you want to see what Earth looks like from space, become an astronaut (or, barring that, a space tourist). For the next best view, pay a visit to Tokyo’s National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation where a massive, nearly 20-foot spherical OLED orb—the world’s first large scale spherical OLED—offers a satellite’s-eye view of the planet in super high resolution.

“Geo-Cosmos” is made up of 10,362 OLED panels that display continuously-updating satellite footage of our tiny blue marble, representing what our planet looks like from space in something close to realtime. It replaces an earlier model covered in LED panels, offering museum-goers a full 10 million pixels, a resolution 10 times greater than its predecessor.

And like any good museum exhibit, Geo-Cosmos is interactive. Touchscreens surrounding the globe allow viewers to tap all kinds of earth science data streaming in from all over the world, like simulations showing the origin of the March 11 earthquake that devastated Japan and the dispersion of all of that energy via tsunamis that reached all the way around the Pacific.

Before Sim City or FarmVille, there was Jerry's map. In the 1960s, Jerry Gretzinger began drawing a fantastical, growing map of unbelievable scope. It began with just a doodle, but now it takes up almost 2,000 8" x 10" frames. Drawing from a randomized deck of playing cards and a complex system of rules, he paints and repaints frames so that the map evolves continuously over decades.

Everything I've seen about the film so far makes it look like it will be a massive improvement on the 1st (not a particularly high bar, admittedly). Also, given Destro was played by Christopher "Never Again" Ecclston, highly unlikely unless they recast.

Jesus, that was painful, positioning the car as wanker fodder without doing anything to sell me on the car itself. And it seems to be in direct competition with the tragically amusing Broderick riffing on Bueller ad for the SUV.

[spoiler]Interesting: a bit of quick pausing reveals that those aren't fighters attacking NY, they're jet sleds kinda like tge ones that He-Man used to use -- and Loki is piloting the one that makes the first strafing run. Also, Tony repeats his arsehat trick from IM2 of leading enemy pursuers straight through civillian populations. The Steve/Thor stuff, though, is making my bromance sense go all wibbly.

Wow - he just sorta strolled right behind it when the guy was clearly about to fire.  That's crazy.

Also sounds like a weapon quality - Back-Blast [X]: People [X] squares behind the weapon suffer [something].
RPG might have 1-2(?), a 40mm Bofors might have 5-6 (for the fast moving heavy shell casting).  Might be too much unnecessary complexity though.

American Map?  Pfft, easy mode.  We're so pro we play Europe (with all it's mother[FRIENDLY] tunnels).  Every time we play I'll lay down any one track and two of the guys will go "so you have here to here, right Dave?" (because their favoured style of play is, as Will put it, "Look at what a giant dick I am" and then blocking me).  I totally do what Colin said is the best way to win - I've done a single track that finished 6 tickets once.  I felt like a champ until I realised the one missed ticket cost me the game by like 5 points.

You're right though, such a great episode of Tabletop.

However, on the off-chance you haven't, check out Forever (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eecFm2iRo7Q&feature=relmfu), one of thier better tracks. I swear Maria Brink's voice gives me fucking goose bumps.

You may not be aware that they also did a cover of Blondie's 'Call Me' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lvmg0q-KHRs) which (IMHO) blew the original out of the water. When I first heard it I thought it actually WAS Blondie with a recent live performance or something. Her voice is that good.

Robbie

The story of a robot, built solely from archival NASA footage

A touching and beautiful film that explores the digital brain and electronic emotions of Robbie, a robot built by NASA, sent to space and abandoned for thousands of years. In the midst of his loneliness, a product of the advanced computer mind he carries, he invents an imaginary world. With his battery dwindling, this is his final note. ALl he wants to do is come home.

“They gave me a mind, but the mind they gave me was different to the organic brain of humans … it doesn’t look like real life.”

The film was spliced together by Neil Harvey solely using NASA’s archival footage. The robot you see is actually the Robonaut 2, and the remaining footage stretches from the Apollo program to the International Space Station.

If that's the case, give him one.  I'd watch that as a feature - that 10 minutes is about the best Punisher that has been put to film.  Also, a feature length version needs to retain Ron Perlman.

Thomas Jane nailed the role for me.

If he and Ron Perlman want to continue this, I'd watch it.  Premium Cable TV series might be better than theatrical for the stories that could be told.

Unless... he's interacting with the movies.  Had a real thing against Spiders, if I recall.

Mega City One - last bastion of law in a devastated wasteland.

Maintaining that law are the Judges... Judge, Jury, and Executioner.

Some are famous and feared - the name of Judge Dredd is enough to cause a pause in conversation.

But this is the story of Judge William Minty.

Minty has spent his entire adult life policing the violent streets of Mega-City One and now he's slowing down. When a lapse of judgement almost ends his life, he knows that it's time to quit. He can choose to teach in the Academy, or he can leave the city and walk alone out into the anarchy of the Cursed Earth, taking law into the wilderness....

A fan made film, Judge Minty is well worth watching -

Damels in Distress Vol. 2; Tropes Versus Women updates (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toa_vH6xGqs).

I liked it, but eh see for yourself. Or don't! Why are you even considering my opinion?! Shoo!

You know, she has a point at how freakishly often those variants happen (particularly the Dead Wife, Save Daughter routine), though I'm not entirely sure about the Euthanized Damsel -> Violence against women connection.  Like she pointed out, the myth is that the woman is at fault, that she "deserved it, wanted it, or was asking for it".  In the Euthanized Damsel, often the "problem" with the woman is caused by an outside source, and the emotion the game tries to invoke is anger at the third party for forcing the main character to go through this.

I guess a good non-mystical example would be, say, the bad guy injects a woman with a bomb, and designs it specifically that the only way to disarm it is to stop the woman's heart from beating.  He then sets up the hero where he's in a position where the only way to do that is to kill her (let's use "with a sniper rifle" as an example for extra sadistic points), and if he doesn't, then many people will die from the blast.  Now, in this scenario, if the woman begs for the hero to kill her, it could be seen as the woman willingly sacrificing herself for the greater good, and I doubt people would blame her... well, they might blame her for getting captured, but if...

Hmmm.  Just had a thought.

What if Princess Peach ended up in a Euthanized Damsel situation?  I mean, I doubt Nintendo would go that in that direction, but what if, in a third party work, they set it up where Mario had to beat up Peach?  Considering how often she gets kidnapped, would players actually be happy to do it?

Huh.  Might have to sleep on that.

There is a line in the last Paper Mario title where someone asks her who Bowser's kids mother is, and she gets flustered and angrily changes the topic...

Rus: Burden of Duty. Doing wrong out of necessity. That said, in the light of "why does this keep happening to women?" it's worth a little skull-sweat.
I'll admit the topic makes me a little uncomfortable, but I also get the necessity of asking. Elevating the topic tends to spur better overall depictions of everyone, and thus propels the art upward.

The only thing that changes when you make a guy into the walking bomb is you just don't feel all that bad about putting a bullet into that otherwise innocent member of the expendable hunter-gatherer gender if it's clearly for the greater good. Assuming your audience is predominantly male, your plot typically threatens women because we just aren't wired to give a bowel moment about the safety of other guys outside of immediate kin groups. Certainly we're not wired to agonize over the choice. You want to talk assumption of "they deserved it" you know that a sizable number of players faced with the dude-bomb scenario will be immediately asking themselves "Dude, how bad do you have to screw up to get turned into a living bomb?" The rational reality is "you don't have to screw up at all, just get forcibly abducted. Something that could happen to almost anybody without warning or recourse." "But dude, somehow you just shouldn't have. Sorry, gotta shoot you now. *bang*"

Damels in Distress Vol. 2; Tropes Versus Women updates (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toa_vH6xGqs).

K, watching that now, and the utter repetition of plot lines is almost comic in how easily it's pointed out, but I just have to say one little thing about rendering women powerless in gaming... It happens once or twice per tale, sure... and then... your character goes on a killing spree that renders hundreds if not thousands of guys (or demons, or what have you) powerless via out an out murder and usually with a substantial bonus if you manage spectacularly gruesome murder. You want to talk "disempowering"? The moral calculus of gaming is that 500+ guys need to die for every woman killed. You only have to kill like 150 guys to balance the scales for a dead dog. Think that value statement through for a minute: if you're a guy, but not the square-jawed hero... your life is considered absolutely worthless by gaming. No one will "damsel" you because no one will bother avenging you.

The Wreck-it Ralph scene was actually quite amusing. It's a model I really don't see a problem playing straight :).

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Projection - Customs House, Sydney Australia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXXhEA001e4)

I went to see that tonight, in the rain and the cold, along with hundreds if not thousands of others; as it was a for 1 night only deal coinciding with the similarly programmed cinema screenings of Asylum of the Daleks/The Angels Take Manhatten, there wasn't much of a choice.

We all counted down and found ourselves singing along with the Murray Gold music we know off by heart because they use it for everything and oohing and cheering and clapping loudly at the end. The cybermen section was my favourite from a design point of view, though I found it very strange that the Matt Smith highlight reel didn't feature the Daleks.

To give you an idea of where this took place:

https://maps.google.com.au/maps?q=customs+house+sydney&ll=-33.861857,151.211156&spn=0.001134,0.002642&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&hnear=Customs+House,+Custom+House+Ln,+Circular+Quay,+Sydney+New+South+Wales+2000&t=h&z=19

The central plaza is blocked off with all the projection gear and pop-up coffee huts, so everyone is clustered around that, then along the footpath beneath the express way than above that on the railway concourse (also beneath said express way), and looking on from the forecourts either side.

Lots of people there in varying amounts of Who paraphernalia. Naturally there were a fair few long scarves and TARDIS beenies.

As I was watching it, I realised that I came into the fandom during the silver anniversary just before the series entered the wilderness years, and now here I am 25 years later and the show is huge the way it probably hasn't been since the 60s with masses of young fans who are absolutely mad about it all, writing letters off to Alex Kingstonand becoming ecstatic when you give some free trading cards and a free copy of the fanclub magazine.

Yeah. I discovered the show back in 1980 and I have been a fan ever since. Not sure if I could even call myself a Whovian. I'll just let the new fans refer to themselves as that.

It actually strikes me as a logical extension of the Ghost in the Shell universe.

I can say I am one of those people.  My gonads were definitely clenched after I realized what type of probe they were using.  I also am a bit perplexed that they are like "we couldn't build a machine to match a human body part!  What's the next step?  Replace all the other body parts with machinery.  You are currently 0-1 trying to come up with a machine more capable, but you can make machines that make the organic parts able to survive.  Why don't you just make augmentations instead of full on replacements?

...or perhaps your entire methodology was rubbish. You launched something into space that you didn't have decent coms protocols for? You thought "hey, all these recording devices we have are just awful compared to ye old wet drive!" I'm guessing no one in the space exploration company (or the artists) had ever had the fun of dealing with something as mundane as a police line up - you know just a little practical exercise of how completely crap the human brain is as a recoding media ::).

Why?  What's wrong with simple, reliable chemical propellant?

I've never understood the desire to create a weapon system with so many fiddly bits.  Especially when the fiddly bits require an electronic connection to work.  I've seen what happens when much simpler electronic systems don't work.

"Ensign, why can't we fire!?"
"Engineering reports that the contacts on the rail gun are degraded and need replacement, sir!"
"So, how is the enemy firing on us?"
"They're still using primitive chemical propellant, sir."

seeing as most of the weight is taken off of the round, and placed within the weapon i can see advantages in loading. i dont see the tech going man portable, but as a ship board system could be useful. as far as the plume of fire goes, traveling at mach five within the the atmosphere could generate a lot of heat, though it could also have to do with a sabot coming off the round.

Yes, but ... not exactly.  "c" in that case is the speed of light so can't go faster.  Also, that equation talks about the total potential energy released in the event you could convert the whole mass to energy.  The more accurate formula is KE (kinetic energy) = 1/2 m (mass) v^2 (velocity, squared).  So, yes, faster IS more energy.

Still doesn't mean that it beats chemical propellants in the reliability department.

thinking like that though just holds humanity back. Gunpowder weapons in their infancy were horribly unreliable. As time went on they improved. Also in terms of reliability railguns have no moving parts which means potentially they could prove more reliable than traditional Chemical weapons.

OK.  I'll make one more comment and then I'm out of this.  I'm an engineer - both by degree as well as occupation.  When I design something, I need it to work; hence, my focus on known reliable tech.  I have worked for our internal R&D division and yes, the focus there is what's over the next hill, around the next bend in the path, etc.  Sadly a lot of effort is made trying to find the end of the rainbow too.  I'll leave tech advancement (and apparently humanity) to my buddies in R&D.

Leonardo Da Vinci’s wacky piano is heard for the first time, after 500 years (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=sv3py3Ap8_Y)

A bizarre instrument combining a piano and cello has finally been played to an audience more than 500 years after it was dreamt up Leonardo da Vinci.

Da Vinci, the Italian Renaissance genius who painted the Mona Lisa, invented the ‘‘viola organista’’ - which looks like a baby grand piano – but never built it, experts say.

The viola organista has now come to life, thanks to a Polish concert pianist with a flair for instrument-making and the patience and passion to interpret da Vinci’s plans.

Full of steel strings and spinning wheels, Slawomir Zubrzycki’s creation is a musical and mechanical work of art.

‘‘This instrument has the characteristics of three we know: the harpsichord, the organ and the viola da gamba,’’ Zubrzycki said as he debuted the instrument at the Academy of Music in the southern Polish city of Krakow.

The instrument’s exterior is painted in a rich midnight blue, adorned with golden swirls painted on the side. The inside of its lid is a deep raspberry inscribed with a Latin quote in gold leaf by 12th-century German nun, mystic and philosopher, Saint Hildegard.

‘‘Holy prophets and scholars immersed in the sea of arts both human and divine, dreamt up a multitude of instruments to delight the soul,’’ it says.

The flat bed of its interior is lined with golden spruce. Sixty-one gleaming steel strings run across it, similar to the inside of a baby grand.

Each is connected to the keyboard, complete with smaller black keys for sharp and flat notes. But unlike a piano, it has no hammered dulcimers. Instead, there are four spinning wheels wrapped in horse-tail hair, like violin bows.

To turn them, Zubrzycki pumps a pedal below the keyboard connected to a crankshaft. As he tinkles the keys, they press the strings down onto the wheels, emitting rich, sonorous tones reminiscent of a cello, an organ and even an accordion.

The effect is a sound that da Vinci dreamt of, but never heard; there are no historical records suggesting he or anyone else of his time built the instrument he designed.

A sketch and notes in da Vinci’s characteristic inverted script is found in his Codex Atlanticus, a 12-volume collection of his manuscripts and designs for everything from weaponry to flight.

‘‘I have no idea what Leonardo da Vinci might think of the instrument I’ve made, but I’d hope he’d be pleased,’’ said Zubrzycki, who spend three years and 5000 hours bringing da Vinci’s creation to life.

For a 90s cartoon, Gargoyles is sometimes very 80s. I say not as a value judgement but merely an observation. Even apart from the occasional date reference, there are so many shots of the twin towers to place this series at the twilight of the old millennium.

But coming up on the 20th anniversary of this much loved series, it certainly did have its flaws (for a start the Australian leg of the World Tour is quite painful). The most obvious is the whole empty city phenomena. You can't set a series in New York -- well, any modern city -- that is so full of light and illuminated windows and only have people materialise on occasion to witness all the chaos and calamity that routinely takes place on the streets. Even for the decade before the advent of camera phones, it's still amusing that it takes some 60+ episodes  for people at large to realise 'there are more things on heaven and earth...' going on in their world. And this is all epitomised in City of Stone storyline early in season 2 where the vast majority of the inhabitants of Manhatten and its surrounds are turned to stone two nights running and the sky is set on fire, and NO ONE NOTICES OR ENTERS THE CITY on either night.

(There is a bit of real body horror in that story too: even assuming the petrified people Demona smashed remain stone come the dawn after the first night, there's one woman who likely one moment was coming home with shopping and the next her arms have vanished and is probably bleeding out on the sidewalk in the midst of arm-like rubble...)

The most egregious narrative problem however are the eggs. At the time it didn't make much of an impact, but this rewatch is coming in the wake of the utter bullshit ending of Revenge of the Sith. Gargoyles protect. For Goliath to basically just go "Fuck it, just petrify me and take the eggs" to the two people who have been absolutely crap in their attitude towards gargoyles, one of whom just permastoned the last surving adult members of the clan because he got his knickers in a twist, and whose continued good will is by no means guaranteed once the shame of their actions wears off? It's the antithesis of what we've been shown up to that point.

Sure, you've lost a whole bunch of folk, but you're still alive and you've got 32 helpless children whose only chance to gain the knowledge of what it means to be a gargoyle is from you. It's infuriatingly bad writing, especially given how very obviously heavily plotted out in advance the first two season seem to be.

For a 90s cartoon, Gargoyles is sometimes very 80s. I say not as a value judgement but merely an observation. Even apart from the occasional date reference, there are so many shots of the twin towers to place this series at the twilight of the old millennium.

But coming up on the 20th anniversary of this much loved series, it certainly did have its flaws (for a start the Australian leg of the World Tour is quite painful). The most obvious is the whole empty city phenomena. You can't set a series in New York -- well, any modern city -- that is so full of light and illuminated windows and only have people materialise on occasion to witness all the chaos and calamity that routinely takes place on the streets. Even for the decade before the advent of camera phones, it's still amusing that it takes some 60+ episodes  for people at large to realise 'there are more things on heaven and earth...' going on in their world. And this is all epitomised in City of Stone storyline early in season 2 where the vast majority of the inhabitants of Manhatten and its surrounds are turned to stone two nights running and the sky is set on fire, and NO ONE NOTICES OR ENTERS THE CITY on either night.

(There is a bit of real body horror in that story too: even assuming the petrified people Demona smashed remain stone come the dawn after the first night, there's one woman who likely one moment was coming home with shopping and the next her arms have vanished and is probably bleeding out on the sidewalk in the midst of arm-like rubble...)

The most egregious narrative problem however are the eggs. At the time it didn't make much of an impact, but this rewatch is coming in the wake of the utter bullshit ending of Revenge of the Sith. Gargoyles protect. For Goliath to basically just go "Fuck it, just petrify me and take the eggs" to the two people who have been absolutely crap in their attitude towards gargoyles, one of whom just permastoned the last surving adult members of the clan because he got his knickers in a twist, and whose continued good will is by no means guaranteed once the shame of their actions wears off? It's the antithesis of what we've been shown up to that point.

Sure, you've lost a whole bunch of folk, but you're still alive and you've got 32 helpless children whose only chance to gain the knowledge of what it means to be a gargoyle is from you. It's infuriatingly bad writing, especially given how very obviously heavily plotted out in advance the first two season seem to be.

Goliath wasn't ever expecting to wake up. He wasn't in the right state of mind, it was intended as a kind of suicide-by-Magus. The fact that he does eventually wake up comes as a surprise to him. Note that it still takes him till the end of the first season to come to the realization that they should be doing some protecting instead of just... living.

Like I said, I get that he was messed up, but that doesn't excuse just giving away the eggs to such an uncertain future when they should have been his overriding concern as the surviving link to his murdered rookerymates

It's entirely possible they only added the eggs being there after they had written the pilot.  It's sort of like how they portrayed Radar on MASH as being all innocent about cigars and liquor, despite an early episode where it shows him smoking a cigar and drinking the Colonel's liquor without any problems.  They decide to add a story element, and hope you don't remember too much about the earlier episodes to notice the plot hole.

The eggs are there in the opening story arc and are actively referred to -- you see them when the trio and Bronx are sent to the rookery, and then after eveything goes to shit and Goliath decides to basically end it all, the princess gives  her assurance the eggs will be protected and looked after by her and the magus.

Huh.  Guess I have failed my memory test roll for the show.  I must repent by watching episodes back to back until I have every detail extensively memorized. If nothing else, maybe this'll get me to get around to watching it again. ;D

So, having just discovered the existence of Windows Movie Maker, I've spent the last day or two playing around splicing together two of the trailers for Malificent into a single narrative (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zmnOh8QXEo8).

(There's actually a third trailer I didn't know about until the last moment that contrasts the original cartoon with the new live action footage and which has some new scenes the other two don't but by then I decided I'd spent enough time on the thing

I really wanted to use the voiceovers from the trailers but sadly once I'd stripped out the original music they sounded awfully tinny so I ditched them. I was also going for the song+trailer music approach at one point, and I almost managed to hack Bones into something serviceable using the perenially handy Audacity, but given the way the beat and pitch changes in parts of the song, the shifting around of lyrics to fit the image created something that was too jumpy. So in the end I just went with Prelude -- recognisable from its appearance in one of the Bayformer trailers -- which by miraculous happenstance just needed a couple of bars cut out towards the end to fit reasonably well.

(Also, the fact that WMM doesn't allow you to step through frame by frame makes it hard both to sync music and more importantly cut the video accurately -- I'm sure there are a couple of stray frames still in there. But you get what you pay for I guess.)

So y'all know how often our knee-jerk reaction to "real" things in commercials is to believe they are fake?  Like, for instance, the Jeff Gordon Pepsi "Test Drive" commercial.  Well it seems Pepsi and Jeff Gordon want to prove that it can be real, so they did another Test Drive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRIgmKGDqFM), this time aimed at a journalist who called "fake" to the original commercial.  The journalist backs the commercial's authenticity.

Time to escape Earth and turn the rest of the universe to ash.  It sounds like it is out to get us (http://www.thedailyepic.com/nasa-probes-record-sounds-in-space-and-its-terrifying/).  (Electromagnetic radiation of space in the 20-20,000 kHz sounds creepy as hell when turned into sound waves.)

It's probably like ink-splotch tests, what you find in something completely random says something about you.

For me, with that video at least, the sounds are rather... fitting.  Jupiter sounds like something you'd hear in a soundtrack for a temple dedicated to the god the planet's named after, Miranda from a post-apoc movie, Neptune sounds like the large ocean it looks like, the rings of Uranus sound like a UFO from a movie that you'd name From the Rings of Uranus... Saturn and it's rings I can't really place, but IO sounds creepy as all heck.  Uranus sounds like a wind tunnel, which I'm sure will fuel all sorts of jokes.

Earth, though, now that sounds like a choir in the most classic sci-fi tradition, particularly the "Song of Earth".

I wasn't aware that one could fail an inkblot test if one were capable of perceiving it.

Super Metroid remains excellent with only a reservation about the relatively simple gameplay.
If you still like exploration, run'n'gun, and platforming it's virtually ageless.

I know it's small consolation, but HR does in fact have a specific collection guidelines about not making "in and out of the closet" jokes.
It's unprofessional, it's unbecoming of a modern workplace and we're all entirely aware of how the collateral is spectacular when "the bear falls" so it's just best overall.

If they really wanted to use that body type for the female hamsteroids they should have used the red carpet male hamsters.

Still would have been skeevy, but at least it would have been equal opportunity.

Just to elaborate, what I meant was I wish they used that filming tech to create fox girls for something.

Alternatively, I could have just titled that "furry bait".

Also, Akira isn't really cyberpunk.

RoboCop - The old one, sure.  The new one is even more cyberpunk in some ways but feels more transhuman when I watch it.

Strange Days - never seen it.  Looks interesting though.

Akira - ehh.  Maybe not but it does have a lawless (or seemingly so) Tokyo which shows up in much of the cyberpunk lit.

Lars Anderson studied historical manuals and rediscovered an ancient and extremely fast way of firing arrows from a bow. He trained himself to be able to perform such feats as firing three arrows in less than a second, catching an arrow and firing it back, and even splitting an oncoming arrow in two.

  I think that's largely borne out in the video. Its clearly a special character (if low level) on the stick for the basic TIE that solos an "X wing" and there is no shortage of TIEs exploding on camera even with them having steep numerical superiority. The majority of the damage inflicted in the engagement was by capital ship turbolasers after using the TIEs as a screen to cover their approach through Rebel bomber wings.
  We also see that the spotlight TIE Interceptor pilot is an older veteran and experienced wing leader able to advise and encourage even ad hoc wingmen. The implication being as your combat hours stack up you graduate to the more expensive but more imposing Interceptor.
  ...TIE Bomber pilots are of course a breed apart (read "lunatics"). And not just because of the two X chromosomes ;).

  Oh, and the X-wing miniatures game kicks much backside 8).

TIE/LN don't have shields, life support, or hyperdrives to save on weight and cost. Imperial military theory viewed them, and their pilots as expendable cogs in the machine. This view started with the clone army, but continued well past the Galactic Empire's downfall.

Which is a different sort of penny wise, pound foolish stupidity, that is not even penny wise.  Energy is so cheap that it is cost effective to haul grain out of gravity wells.  Now all you need is a bit of time for the pilots to practice, and a bit of gear so they survive.

(I can squint and see the life support angle as mostly a reason for why TIE pilots won't survive long enough to take their craft and defect the way one could with an X-Wing.  Come to think of it, wouldn't shields be necessary for operating in an atmosphere?)
Title: Re: Cool Vids (Keep it Clean)
Post by: Morgenstern on March 27, 2015, 05:43:34 AM
  Honestly it depends on what their original deployment profile was intended for. As low cost raiders designed to subdue merchant vessels they make sense. They are also plausible scouts in a culture highly resistant to widespread use of droid pilots. The "Rebels" cartoon has hinted at various in-atmosphere air support duties where shields might not even be possible to deploy. And despite the lack of shields, most games present their hull structure as decently rugged. They don't all fly directly into asteroids and explode ;).
  The later, more expensive TIE Aggressors also lack shields and are specifically intended for anti-shipping/raid duties adding a rack of 6 missiles.

  The wiki article on the overall TIE series comments:
Quote
Very few TIE starfighters were equipped with combat shielding, though they were included on the Avenger and Defender and could be retrofitted onto most TIE types. This lack of shielding was a factor toward the TIEs extreme speed. Retrofitting of this type was fairly common in the New Republic era, as ships and manpower became more valuable to Imperial forces.

  Once the Empire realized it had a fight on its hands with a resistance movement sporting actual space-superiority snub fighters, they started branching out into a lot of new designs. Interceptors still lack shields, but their performance is generally written as scary-good. After that the TIE Avenger (a general production version of the TIE Advanced), TIE Defender, TIE Hunter, and TIE Phantom all had shields.

  Amusingly the TIE fighter probably established in writer minds and then was partially justified in-setting by the long standing habit of the Sith cultures/rulers to produce high speed shieldless attack craft as their basic fodder. There are "Sith fighters" found in three other major eras in the setting (Old Republic, Great Hyperspace War and the Legacy era after the movies) that all lack shields and rely on speed. And if you guess the majority of them were powered by a pair of Ion engines, you'd be right ;).

Inside an atmosphere not so much. Vehicles mostly use repulsortech to move inside an atmosphere, but TIEs would still have all the aerodynamic grace of a brick and be subject to some truly vicious wind-shear, so their energy requirements would be much steeper than something more aerodynamically shaped. But again, energy seems relatively cheap given X-Wings can make make the entire trip from the surface of one plane to another in a different system unaided.

It's orbital space where you'd really need shields because even assuming for the moment that a TIE is robust enough to handle the forces generated by re-entry, they'd still be exceedingly vulnerable to micrometeorites and other space junk

Twisted (https://youtu.be/tpu6yPAFHrs)

Bomb (https://youtu.be/HYSxN4ezhO4)

I'm not much of a fan of Twisted, feels too gimmicky. Big and Bomb are great though.

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles

Big (https://youtu.be/fOWLqnjFN64)

Twisted (https://youtu.be/tpu6yPAFHrs)

Bomb (https://youtu.be/HYSxN4ezhO4)

I'm not much of a fan of Twisted, feels too gimmicky. Big and Bomb are great though.

Big: Great

Twisted: Too ... obvious, I guess.  It's a little too much on the nose for me.

Bomb: Undecided.  I like the visuals but without some depth to put into focus on the character, I can't decide if it's good or not.

Bomb is the winner for me -- deepest storyline, best use of characters. Like most everyone else, Twisted doesn't do much for me. Big was amusing and had nice use of teleportation, but otherwise didn't really have much to say about Wonder Woman the way the other two shorts did about Superman and Batman.

Also, some context for Bomb: JLU Batman: Ace's Death (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWHHsdE_oQg)

Some more context for Bomb, that's not the scion of the House of El. That's the son of Zod.

Similarly, that's not Diana of Themascara, it's Bekka of New Genesis, New God and Orion's wife. Also, Batman is Kirk Landstrom

And I already like him more than a lot of the takes on Kal-El. It's disappointing that Timm couldn't find anyone from Diana's own milieu to take over the mantle the way he did with the other two.

Might have some minis for RAHEROes.  Now if only they could design an assault rifle that didn't make me partially cringe.  :P

So in 1977, a kid took a tape recorder into a screening of Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope (Back then it was just Star Wars) and recorded audio reactions to the Death Star trench run. And someone else edited the audio to match the video.  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzRveOGMflo&feature=youtu.be)
