Today marks the launch of The Unique Motel Podcast. Check it out now, and be sure to leave feedback for the Motel keepers. The first edition is available in two different bit rates to hopefully satisfy most people’s downloading abilities…
Hip fan “spycouple” from hipbase just posted this:
Here’s a “rough sketch” of video shot a couple nights ago in Seattle. The smaller file is a mp4 version while the big file is a DVD image, both on YouSendIt. Downie is pretty animated on this (boxing with the mic, destroying mic stands, etc.). I didn’t get the blowing on Paul’s neck bit, but there is a part where it seems Gordie might pull out his Jimmy Morrison.
It turned out a bit better than expected. I’m finding the Sony PDR-DX10 way too touchy to get the nice slow Kubrick zooms, but it’s helluva camera. Just not used to it.
There’s a fantastic sneezing fit that I unfortunately run into at the tail end of this sequence of songs. Like knowing you’re going to sneeze while driving. Kinda funny.
Hipfan and friend Dave Caley has posted his recordings from Holiday Jam on his blog for download.
Get ’em while they’re hot!
From thehip.com: Starting Tuesday November 28th, iTunes in Canada and the United States has seven songs available from The Tragically Hip’s Friday September 15th Austin City Limits Festival performance at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas.
Hey fans… I recently learned about a glitch in the DVD burning software I used that eliminates the code to get the video to play properly on all screen sizes (full on a 16×9, letterboxed on a 4×3 screen).
But there is a fix! I’ve edited the files that needed to be changed. If you download the changed files and replace the ones you already have, your disc will play correctly.
The files are here: replacement-video_ts-files.zip
Here’s a quick two-cam mix I whipped up this morning of last nights show at The Metropolis in Montreal, PQ.
And in an iPod ready MP4: At The Hundredth Meridian
*Note that this is a 35mb file.
I’ll post more as I create them. Stay tuned…
