As you may have guessed from the silence around these parts – the emu-themed blog action has wound down to an end. I want to thank everyone who has followed the journey of this video-centric blog since its inception in January of 2009. The podcast won’t be affected by this change – it will still sling your usual doses of radio improvisational discussion-ness every now and again.
For those interested in video-related postings – you can follow me on Twitter, or check out my video favorites on Frequency.
Saving that, I give you Meppers the last video – as I toss this blog off the proverbial cliff. Enjoy, be well, and keep mepping.
This Japanese site will take any portrait-like picture that you upload and automatically convert it into a blinking, nodding, quasi-zombie animated template ready to model various animal heads, wigs, and facial hair.
It’s easily good for 45 minutes of time wasting. Fun, fun.
A hidden treasure on Google Video makes available a 35 minute short shot by Stanley Kubrick’s daughter, Vivian, during the filming of The Shining. The piece gives us a sense of the process of one of the most legendary filmmakers of all time.
Discovered a treat on Vimeo last night. It’s a full 70-minute stand up routine of Carlin and Hicks disciple, Marc Maron.
This routine, filmed a couple weeks ago at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade theater, will give you a good sense of Maron’s plodding, dark, self-loathing, intellectual style. He seems equally depressed as the Patron Saint Bill Hicks would be having to face a media world as over commercialized and sold out as ours is.
One of my new favorite toys is this online tool that allows you to indulge your wildest internet egocentricities. The tool seeks out your each and every Google-worthy act and unceremoniously dumps it into one of many pre-determined category bins, forever branding the nature of your service to the human race.
It’s so uncompromising and final… This pleases me.
