Apparently the folken over at The Onion
have figured out why the US behaves, well. The way
it behaves: U.S. May Have Been Abused During Formative Years
In other news, I've not only discovered the wonderfulness that is Windows Movie Maker, but have found that it's preinstalled on my computerOMG
. And! I've actually figured out how to do a couple of things with it. Geh, I'm already formulating a list in my head of Vids To Make. Granted, I suck at tech stuff, but with a good enough tutorial? Bring on the angsty Velvet Goldmine
/yadda yadda muses, baybee. Of course, I'll probably be doing these from the nursing home, because I'm such a slow learner techwise.
However! I actually have Results from my practising today. I figured I should start with something I don't hate looking at. I mean, really, I probably wouldn't want to start with "Toxic Waste Dumps I Have Known" or "Naked Russian Tsars of the Past" (not that I have actual video of either of these, although the latter might be interesting, if perhaps somewhat repulsive). Might sour me to the whole thing. So, as my first easy-for-you-difficult-for-me project, I decided to clip what just might bethe most aesthetically pleasing 37 seconds of television, ever* (aka Thank You Canada).
It's all about teh kinetics
. Objects in motion. Ray Kowalski meets Isaac Newton. Oh, yes.
You know you wanna fullscreen. Don't lie, you do. *maniacal laughter*
Oh, also, here's the song file that goes with it. Because it's just that cool:Headstones - Cubically Contained
Repeat loop OMG. I might just become a Headstones groupie. Except they broke up three years ago. Zathras is constantly late to the party.
I also learned to make screencaps, which
you will be subjected to
I will do as soon as I figure out the whole get-stuff-from DVDs thing.
In other news, my pantry counter is clean, my rent is paid, and I'm going to visit moonlight69
in less than a week.
Life is good, say thankya.
*Don't even try
to tell me this wasn't choreographed. It SO was.
