And this is what I am hearing:
for dropping in on and tumbling by DS106
And this is what I am hearing:
So Burtus was on my case pretty fast last week, trying to get a fix on me. I guess I didn’t drop enough clues. The deal was I should reveal some history, some of my favorite places, that might have given her a clue. For the folk less agile that Burtus, I’ll spell it out. I’ve been down south where the sky ain’t sentimental. I ran into a bit of bother, nothing I couldn’t handle.
Anyhow I was intrigued enough to listen to the second message on my machine. When you have more than one client things can get tricky, and this is tricky times four.
This week Groom seems to be sucking up to Burtus big time.
I saw a couple of Burtus other performances too (here and here). She is trying to come over cashmere, soften the message a bit, but she is still all steel. Wants everything her way, reports for Sunday night.
All 4 of the clients are demanding, well they can keep that up, I’ll steer my own course through this business.
Another familiar face showed up here last week. Quite a character for such a sweet face. Worth keeping you eye on Tina if you are in this game.
So, among this week’s unreasonable demands was instructions to dig into some character. I started leafing through some old cases. I got interested in Frank Bigelow, but that turned into a wild goose chase.
The Words and pictures just didn’t line up. I dived back into the files. I was looking for words and pictures at the right time and struck gold:
You can tell a lot about a character from watching others talk about them. These guys are pieces of work.
Just a quick test of my supercutting. Logo added with Quicktime pro.
The Big Steal describe by Wikipedia as:
a 1949 American black-and-white film noir/comedy reteaming Out of the Past stars Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer. The film was directed by Don Siegel, based on the short story “The Road to Carmichael’s” by Richard Wormser.
My first post here since April! I missed the whole of the burgeon experience and have done only a handful of daily creates. I am not saying sorry, I have made a few artefacts and experimented with some stuff that is pretty #ds106. There is no really useful instructions in this post, but links for the willing.
I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while, I did a few tests in June and tweeted a bit about it. It is pretty cool:
Videogrep is a python script that searches through dialog in videos and then cuts together a new video based on what it finds. Basically, it’s a command-line “supercut” generator.
from: Videogrep: Automatic Supercuts with Python – Sam Lavigne
Here is a quick test:
And a link to another: blade runner know
I’ve not even scratched the surface of videogrep, there are some pretty amazing ideas on the link.
I had a wee bit of difficulty installing videogrep, and had, as I recall, to wander round googling to get things running. The videos produced lacked sound, but running them through miro video converter fixed that. I am guessing if you are command line savvy enough the code could be adjusted.
Here is a supercut for Barksdale in episode 1 of the wire.
On the back of the jungle supercut I revisited using gifboard to create automatic subtitled gifs. I notice Jim pointing to something similar. yesterday.
Both gifboard and videogrep are command line applications and not for the faint hearted.
I dusted off gifboard for a quick slice of the wire:
With a little encouragement from Mariana, I dipped my toes back into glitching world, I am afraid no movie glitchs I made were of any interest, but I had better luck with sonicification of images after Alan posted Image Bending in Audacity.
I’ve long admired some gifs I’ve seen on tumblr that repeat across the page, during the recent giffight on emblems here are mine I figured out how to do this:
Basically a lot of copy and pasting.
During the emblems giffight Andrew Forgrave produced some great anaglyph gifs and some tutorials around them from which I gained a lot (globe-of-doom-anaglyph-1 | Flickr – Photo Sharing!).
I’ve been a big fan of the wire so hoped to throw myself into some ds106 activity, turns out re-watching series one I mostly get caught up in enjoying it and following the plot, not much analysis going on here. Hopefully I get some fun before the series is out.
