iPlaylist – updated script

7
Jun 2009

I’ve made another small script to generate a random playlist in the style of an iPod Classic – it’s an update of my previous script, found here. You can see it in action on my main page or here – the second link shows it side by side against the old version.

It’s fairly simple and the readme file in the zip should answer any questions, if not, post them here and I’ll answer.

Simply put, it’s just cleaner, a bit sexier and smoother. Hope you like.

Vid: [The Mighty Boosh] Holding Out for a Hero – REMASTERED

28
Oct 2007

Vid Title: Holding Out For a Hero

Artist: Bonnie Tyler

Fandom: The Mighty Boosh

Summary: Vince/Howard, even though I started it as a general vid rather than a shippy one. The first verse is Howard’s point of view, second is Vince’s.

Rated: U, same as the show

File Size: 16.6 MB

Feedback: Oh, by the way, feedback does not suck, so… yeah. Leave some bitches. Uh… nice bitches. (Here’s where I offend people before they get the reference).

Notes: Same vid as before, only with better quality, larger source, and a few stray frames have been removed. Two new teeny-tiny clips that are more interesting than the ones that were originally there. Preeeeety souce! Enjoy.

[Boosh] Holding Out for a Hero - Remastered (16.60MB) (1897)

The YouTube link has been removed because I got a note from YouTube saying they’d had a C&D from BabyCow productions. *le sigh*

You can still download the old version here:

Vid: [The Mighty Ducks] November Rain – REMASTERED

8
Jul 2007

This vid has been remastered, using higher quality clips and editing the bits that I was never particularly happy with. Things have changed a little, and it is now one vid instead of two. See below for download details.

Vid Title: November Rain

Artist: Guns N’ Roses

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Clips from: D1, D2, D3 and Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses

Summary: This is an AU vid, in which Casey and Bombay were married and Charlie is their son. This vid (or vids) deals with their break-up and Bombay’s self-destruction that follows it, not to mention Charlie’s reaction. See the Notes for more details.

File Size: See below (by the download links)

Format: Real and Windows Media

Notes: I can’t exactly remember what my thought process was, but I eventually challenged myself to make a video based on Without You by Del James (bear with me on this), using only footage from The Mighty Ducks, and the Without You music videos by Guns N’ Roses (for the non-rabid GN’R fans, that’s Don’t Cry, November Rain and Estranged).

The story of Without You is ultimately about the self-destruction of a man who appears to have everything, but still manages to screw it up. Theoretically Gordon could be that man, he’s rich, he’s well educated, he’s loved, and he could screw it up easily and lose everything. This vid tried to explore that. I have had to use footage from Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses because, obviously, Casey and Gordon never got married in the Ducks fandom (but did in my mind, I love that pairing), and so forth. Any questions, hop over to the forums and ask there. I’ll answer in great detail, I assure you.

If the vid didn’t make sense, try reading the commentary.

Feedback: Always welcome. If you liked it, tell me. If it didn’t make sense, let me know, your opinion will not break me. I have never actually had any feedback on this vid, despite there being over 300 downloads. Was it really that bad?

New Version:
YouTube link removed, thanks to a scary Cease & Desist from BabyCow about my Boosh vids.
[Ducks] November Rain - Remastered - Real (49.7MB) (1894)
[Ducks] November Rain - Remastered - Win (14.1MB) (1883)

Old Version:

Feb 2007

Vid Title: Save Yourself

Rated: 15, same as the movie

File Size: 18.1 MB in Real, or 9.8 MB in Windows Media Player

Paint Shop Pro Gradients

Jan 2007

I made a bunch of gradients for Paint Shop Pro 7. They actually work in later versions of PSP too. I’ve since upgraded to PSP9 and they work perfectly. I belive you may have to actually import them in any version of PSP above version 7. There is a tutorial here which will help.

Music Videos

20
Nov 2006

If you’ve dropped by to have a look at the music vids here, I’d have to suggest that you watch In The Hall of the Mountain King (Needful Things), Holding Out for a Hero, and Pump Up The Volume as your first few downloads. They’re my most recent, and also the best I’ve done. I’ve gotten better at vidding over time, so the further back you go, the more amaturish the vids are. That said, Bad Reputation is much better than Every Day I Love You Less and Less.

Something that baffles me is why November Rain Part 1 has 65 downloads, but Part 2 only has 29. Do people only watch the first half and not care about the second half? I really should have edited the song better, so it was all one video. I think maybe that can be my next project.

Vid: [Needful Things] In The Hall of the Mountain King

22
Sep 2006

New video, this time to Needful Things.

Vid Title: In The Hall of the Mountain King [commentary]

Artist: Sconosciuto/Edvard Greig

Fandom: Needful Things

Summary: A very short summary of the film, set to music? I think that’s the best I can do.

Rated: R – same as the source material, for a certain doggie scene. My apologies.

File Size: 18.7 MB – it’s very pretty quality.

Format: Real. Why? Because there’s hundreds of copies of Hero all over the net, thanks to YouTube, and I like to keep track of my vids – also, Real is far easy to deal with than Quicktime. I should have chosen this format years ago.

Notes: Again, I state this vid is rated R because of a quick flash of nastiness. It’s not on there long, so I can’t imagine people will be disturbed, but don’t say you weren’t warned.

Vid: [Mighty Boosh] Pump Up The Volume

15
Aug 2006

Vid Title: Pump Up The Volume

Artist: MARRS

Fandom:
The Mighty Boosh

Summary: Dancing, lots of it.

Rated: U, same as the show

File Size: 20.2 MB – again, a large file because it’s in Quicktime.

Format: Quicktime. Why? Because there’s hundreds of copies of Hero all over the net, thanks to YouTube, and I like to keep track of my vids.

Dedication and Thanks: Again to Maestro, who threatened to kick my arse if I didn’t finish this soon. This vid has been on my computer for months – even before Hero – waiting for the final 18 seconds to be put on. I have now done this. Enjoy.


Notes:
There is no disclaimer on the vid itself. I feel bad about this, but cannot face rendering it again (once you see it, you’ll know which five-second segment took over an hour to render). I own nothing, not the song, not the clips, nothing.
