Dude. I made it on to the Arkaos web site. Now i have really arrived.
Where is my mother??????
This is me, wearing my grey hat and thrift store lab coat at the London Virgin Megastore last week. The VJ’s were having some difficulties with the Oxygen 8 Midi and i was offering my wise counsel, since i also use an Oxy8, and use the same Arkaos software that was being demonstrated.
As it turned out, my advise was useless – it was a faulty Midi and they just replaced it and got on with the show. But i got to meet these VJs and we hope to see each other again.VJ Toby (Chris- on right) lives in Berlin – he put me on to Archive.org where i have been downloading some killer 40’s and 60’s religious film footage. Amoeba (Scot- in front) is a fine young Scot who offered me all his video stock from his cool web site. As for trade tips, we all have come to the conclusion that compressing QT video in photo jpeg format (at about 25 frames per second) is the most efficient way to get the file size down and keep the quality up, and prevent crashing the computer during the show.
Oh yeah – i also met VJ Michela, an Aussie video geek now based in London. She had her first website up in 1993 (impressive!) and is working on an open source video project online.
