"EMI has sued video site Vimeo for copyright infringement, alleging that the company goads users to post video clips of themselves lip-synching songs by musicians like Billy Idol and KT Tunstall."
If what they say is "nothing is forever",
Then what makes love the exception?
So why are we so in denial
When we know we're not happy here?
...Y'all don't wanna hear me, you just wanna dance.
peeedro: Two questions:
1) Why doesn't the camera man ever walk backwards? The actors/lip dubbers could preform more naturally like this and make a better video.
potch: gah <em> fail
the cameraman is walking backwards...
“OutKast fans like to ‘shake it like a Polaroid picture,’ but the instant camera maker is warning consumers that taking the advice of the hip-hop stars could ruin your snapshots.
OutKast's number one hit ‘Hey Ya’ includes the ‘shake it’ line as a reference to the motion that amateur photographers use to help along the self-developing film.
But in the ‘answers’ section on the Polaroid Web site, the company says that shaking photos, which once helped them to dry, is not necessary since the modern version of Polaroid film dries behind a clear plastic window.
The image ‘never touches air, so shaking or waving has no effect,’ the company said on its site. ‘In fact, shaking or waving can actually damage the image. Rapid movement during development can cause portions of the film to separate prematurely, or can cause 'blobs' in the picture.’
A Polaroid spokesman added: ‘Almost everybody does it, thinking that shaking accelerates the development process, but if you shake it too vigorously you could distort the image. A casual shake typically doesn't affect it.’
Polaroid said its film should be laid on a flat surface and shielded from the wind, and that users should avoid bending or twisting their pictures. Of course, ‘lay it on a flat surface like a Polaroid picture,’ doesn't sound nearly as cool.”
"At the end of the video is a message: 'Try and beat that Shorecrest!'
Game on. Shorecrest says it's already planning its response, but the students aren't ready to give away what that is.
What makes this rivalry more special is the video teachers for each school. Shorecrest's Trent Mitchell and Shorewood's Marty Ballew are childhood friends."*
"When Javier Cáceres walks the halls of Shorewood High School, he is greeted as a rock star, a conquering hero … the guy who engineered the defending blow against Seattle rival Shorecrest....Did you know that if you simply sing words in reverse, your mouth won’t match the words, making your video look like a badly dubbed Godzilla movie? Cáceres spent hours filming himself singing 'You Make My Dreams Come True' in reverse, adjusting the lyrics phonetically so they’d sync when played backwards....In the end, even rival alumni Rainn Wilson gave Shorewood begrudging props, posting a link to the new video in this Twitter post: 'Ok, it's on. Shorewood (idiot losers) have issued a video response to Shorecrest's awesome "Hey Ya!" vid — u decide'" ... [more].
"So Ashton Kutcher and Ben Stiller were tweeting the other day. You know. Down in Hollywood.
Ashton says to Ben: Wish YouTube existed when I was in high school.'
And Ben says, 'We are all going to be working for Javier Caceres in five years.'
Javier Caceres. You know. The filmmaker. [more].
