Amateur DVD commentary.

Amateur DVD commentary. The site is a little rough around the edges, but it is a fascinating exercise in voracious fandom nonetheless. Roger Ebert is heralded as giving the idea to the masses [NYT article], but as always, there seems to be prior art. ;)

Oh, and a brief look at the legal issues on LawMeme.

Criminy. To think I researched it out and never found a MeFi discussion. *sigh* It was bound to happen. Consider me DeMeFi'ed.

Didn't mean to bust you on a double-post, pedantic. As far as I know, is new to MeFi, and I'm grateful you posted it. I just wanted to offer that link for anybody interested in the earlier discussion. No demefiization intended.

hm... How do I not get any of the movie sound on my recording? Am I just supposed to know the movie so well I watch it with sound off, or do I use headphones? Or what?

The easiest way is probably to write it noting the timecode for each discussion point, record it in segments according to the timecode, then edit those segments together. In this case you wouldn't even be watching the movie when you recorded your commentary.

Thanks fot that LawMeme link, pendantic.

The Lindows vs MS info, further down the page, was a rewarding discovery.
