This is an incredible video showing what was being developed in 1968. It just took over 20 years for mice to be considered normal on a computer. Video-conferencing much longer.
Another one of the skills that I am learning is editing video. Thanks to tutorials on YouTube, I managed to put the video above together as a start using Lumafusion on the iPad. I’m interested to see how this skill can develop in combination with going on bike rides around the city. It was just shot on a Samsung S9 and even though it uses slow motion, the footage is quite shaky. Going to try some other cameras for comparable results.
Japan is a fascinating place and I have loved visiting there. I would have loved to have lived there for a while but alas, it wasn’t possible. I’m thinking of going back there again this year. I just saw that James May of Top Gear fame has done a travel documentary on Amazon Video. I’m halfway through it and have really enjoyed it.
Loved the bits in Tokyo and Sendai so far.
I should start looking for flights soon…
I am loving this YouTube video about learning music theory. I got a midi keyboard for my 2019 challenge and have realised that there is a lot to learn to get to the point of making something good.
Such an entertaining and informative video about Finland. One correction however, the best ice-cream is Salmiakki and Lemon. Or sitruuna-lakritsi-jäätelöä. Mmmmm.
Loved this video and saw it come up again on my YouTube feed. Posted it before on Twitter but wanted to put it here on my blog. Really nice shots of some parts of Achill even if other parts of the island were missed.
Interesting cover of the traditional song “Whiskey in the jar” that just came on the radio by Think Twice. Never considered that song could be worked as a lounge version.
Frank Kelly has been a cultural presence almost all of my life. He was a character on Hall’s Pictorial Weekly in the 1970’s slurping tea from a saucer with Eamon Morrissey. If I was too young to understand the political commentary behind the sketches, it was memorable to an impressionable young boy with only one television channel to watch.
Later on, there was Father Ted of course.
But one of my favourite performances of Frank Kelly is in the short film where he has a small cameo part Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom
One of my favourite songs of the 1980’s. Much better than the more popular Black song “Wonderful Life” So sad to hear that he had died yesterday. The cull of artists in 2016 continues.
Black – Sweetest Smile
