DJ Soma rocking the Diversity stage with some sweet Psychedelic sounds
I captured a few short (30 second) video clips while at Entheos Music festival 2008 on my Canon S80 digital camera.
The main dance floor looks pretty dark – but thats what you get under Psychedelic lighting conditions! Enjoy
Cooliris (already known for their webpage preview when you hover over a link) have a plugin available for you browser called Piclens. After installing, with a single click you will be able to transform your flickr or youtube browsing to a beautifully rendered fullscreen photo wall.
update July 2008: WordPress does not currently support the Piclens plugin – however you can still leverage it simply by hosting your pics somewhere like Flickr
It’s is actually pretty simple to get Piclens working on your blog. Simply host all your photos on Flickr (or similar piclens supported website). That way the little piclens play button is just visible and working.
So instead of uploading your picture directly to wordpress – upload them to Flickr (there is a good Batch Uploading tool if you upload photos all the time).
Once on Flickr browse to your photo
Right Click – Copy Address (firefox anyway – Internet Explorer may be a little different). Make sure you have the correct picture size selected ie Not the thumbnail
In WordPress create new post
Paste the URL you just copied from Flickr
Add a description
Add a Caption if you want
Insert Image into Post
Thats it! When you publish your post you’ll now see the Piclens icon for any/all pics you have hosted on Flickr.

Girlfriend Team Fortress 2 is a completely entertaining video montage from a guy who recorded his girlfriends first foray into the world of online first person shooters.
Basically I recorded my girlfriend (who I would not call a gamer) playing Team Fortress 2 for the first time.
It’s quiet an interesting experiment, to see how her skills improve as she gets over the initial learning curve and how she doesn’t have any of the ground work that most gamers have in knowing the general rule sets and principles of games.

Hang drums are a relatively new comer to the percussion scene developed by a couple of clever Swiss in 2000 and derive their name from the Burmese dialect for hand. Hang drums are capable of producing a wide array of sounds and in this video clip you can hear what can be achieved with a mic and some simple delay effects. Beautiful.
William Shatner’s version of the I am Canadian speech. And for the record – Ginsberg is his real doctor.
Yeah you head it right. Patagia (look it up ). 100 mph of brown trouser fun
Conrad Oberg, 12 yr-old visually impaired, self taught piano and guitar player, performs the Jimi Hendrix classic, “Little Wing.”
Here is a nice video clip with Alex Grey talking a little about his seminal art works depicting mans spiritual potential. He refers to his works as visionary and himself as a mystic. When you see his painting ‘Gaia’, from 1989 complete with two air liners, twin towers, Bush and ‘terrorist’ look-a-like you’ll understand that Alex can see to the truth of things.
This is beautiful. Some folks are just so clever it turns out.
You have probably heard the quote “There are only 7 women in the world who look like supermodels, and 3 million who don’t”. Well along those same lines take a look at this clip produced by a leading cosmetics company showing you the transition from normal person, to the model category of person. Nothing like photoshop for getting rid of unsightly imperfections.

This clip is the result of some clever timesynching to allow the creator, a novice on both the drums and piano, to whip up a pretty decent track.
This is just a test post trying to show the people who are having difficulties with getting their YouTube embedded videos to show up, that their code is ok.
