Tripping on Yooouuutuuube

May 2, 2009 at 4:21 pm (Interesting) (, , )

Oh internets, you never cease to amaze me. This latest fad-site allows you to choose any YouTube video, and have it magically strewn across your computer screen over a thousand times at once. The beauty of this, is that it delays each instant by a few seconds each, giving sort of a kaleidescope effect.

Alice in Wonderland
The above example is a video I posted a few weeks back, by Pogo. (You can click the image to load the Yooouuutuuube version.)

Simply visit www.yooouuutuuube.com and paste a YouTube link of your choice. Adjust the settings to your little heart’s content (width, height, shuffle, etc.) and go for it. This may lag a bit on older computers, so if it doesn’t run smoothly, it’s time for an upgrade.

Some other great videos to do this with are:

Xtranormal

We’ve all walked out of a movie and said, “I could’ve done better than that.” Here’s your chance to put your money where your mouth is. xtranormal aims to bring out the director/ creator in all of us with http://www.xtranormal.com, an application that allows users to create video spots from a variety of templates and broadcast to the audience of their choice. Through a range of production tools that simplify the entire movie-making process to ingenious avatars that recreate your dialogue, xtranormal has created a technology that could have far-reaching ramifications not only for the entertainment industry but for the very definition of online video.

I’ve taken a few minutes to give the new service a try and created 3 original videos and one “remix”. The site allows you to take someone else’s work and put your own spin on their creation.

This could get addicting for just about anyone who loves to be creative. Even though the abilities of the animated characters are somewhat limited, there are plenty of variables to keep things interesting for a while.

After all, it’s still in Beta. Give it a try and share your posts with me, I’d love to see what you can come up with! My profile can be found at: http://www.xtranormal.com/profile/inimical

Me & my Audi TT Quattro playing in the snow

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about "Me & my Audi TT Quattro playing in th…", posted with vodpod


Only got an inch or so of accumulation here in Jersey today. I was bored, so I grabbed my camera and drove to the nearest empty lot. Mind you, I’m from Florida and I’ve never done this before, so it may not be the most exciting snow video….

It was mostly powder and almost zero ice so I couldn’t get some REAL good slides in there. Either way, I had a good time and I figured you’d all get a chuckle or two. The sound is probably the best part of the video, so turn up the speakers if ya gott’em

Enjoy!

Qik.com

Hey guys, I setup a Qik.com account for use with my iPhone. Mostly, I’ll be using it to stream myself driving around in my TT. I have a windshield mount setup for the phone that I mostly use for handsfree calls or listening to the ipod.

I figured I’d put it to some good use and drilled a hole in the mount so the camera could get a view of the road while it was sitting there. Most of the videos will probably be a bit mundane, but you never know what could happen out there on the road. Feel free to log on and chat with me live whenever I’ve got a stream going, it’ll come right up on my screen in the car.
