Video geekery you bet your ass, at Whakatane Highschool I was the av club. Lets not single out video though, music, film, political, computer and internet geekery all rok th' party. Who here would disagree?
The rumor I heard that BT was done in India.
Now Futurama was a cartoon with class. And you can get the entire first 3 episodes from the Warehouse for less than $70! Swoon
Better still I saw a boxed set (4 disc) of the original Pink Panther at K mart in Henderson, Mancini providing the soundtrack beyond the theme tune as well. $ 70.00 Wowza.
Hayden I have to agree, I have never found the hype believable after the first episode. There has been no development in the characters, no addition of new semi permanent characters or attempts at different ways of delivering a narrative, or in the case of South Park no rampant iconaclastic going for the throat. Two dimensional animation is a very apt way to describe the show.
That or the show is written for the horizon of ten year olds which in that case it is poor programming (and some pretty hasty 'looky we made something' local flag waving, so it must go into prime time) by the broadcaster. Staying with the broadcaster, TV3's owner has had to pull its belt in a few notches this year, so the low quality in production could very well be a directive form an accountant somewhere - ill say conspiracy as soon as some else does.
For the shows quality does any one know if the frame by frame work is done here or wage slaved off shore? Either way whoever mastered the show to a DV codec for analog broadcast should be shot. Aliased lines are so second year polytec maaaaaan.
Final words: Bring back Sesame Street and Barney Miller.
I know my formatting is shite, A simple waqy to avoid such mistakes is to simply change the formatting instuctions from quote to block quote. I though that this custom tag was a means to add quotation marks, not an indented quote. My mistake - sorry. Whilst on the hobby horse, how about adding tabs at the top of the page something like the trademe site to get from here to pubadd and back. I know its like comparing peaches to arses in terms of aesthetics but the switchover could be more transparent. One last, whats up all the scroll bars, looks bad - unless its a firefox 1.0 thing.....
It was (and is) at number 8 west terrace just before where the
K' rd market is or was (dont get in to town much these days) Where the bus queue is, a dairy that specialises in indian products is on the corner. On another topic is it true Dylan R. fathered a child?
What I remember most about those halcyon days was that flats had titles to them. I myself had the great pleasure of living in the Red House (off K' rd Akl) for about 18 months, the rent in the early 90's was a grand 32 bucks.
Most international bands of any alternative repute visited the house and the day after I moved in Penelope Keith was filmed there for a Heinz ad. This house was also the creative stable for one of the best and most gonzo bands of that time - Sperm Bank Five. SB5's previous band incarnation ?Fog shot their seminal music video Brian there, possibly the best visual evidence of the sublime gestalt that was the red house interior. Stuart Page stand and upload please.
The house was reportedly the first Police station in K' rd and did have stables, an outhouse, and a covered over well to validate that claim. Sadly it was gentrified in the mid 90's and has been painted the most sterile of whiltes.
