lazy ... talk of HD

Since I'm too lazy to sign up for an account, I thought I'd make a comment about this post over at SCI FI Tech.

He makes a comment about 1080p being a format that runs at 60 frames per second, and it 1080p not being compatible with film's frame rate of 24fps. This simply isn't true. Although there is a 60fps format of 1080p, it's rarely used. More common is the 24 or 30 fps format. The 24fps format, obviously, is directly compatible with film's frame rate (which also isn't a standard, you can shoot film at any rate you want, the faster you shoot, the more information per second is recorded. Footage is often shot at 30fps on film to make it more compatible with the traditional video fps of 29.97fps).

Look at me getting all geeky on you and NOT talking about music. Oh well.

For more info, check out Wikipedia or this longer article with more in depth discussion on the subject.

Not so modest anymore

For the longest time, I felt like Isaac's voice (of Modest Mouse) reminded me of someone. I could never place it. The new album made me realize who it was. And now I'm not saying they're exact duplicates, but Isaac sounds like the indie/punk version of Steve Forbert.

Your response was probably one of two things:

What the heck? Did he just say what I think he did?


Steve who?

Listen to these live tracks:

Steve Forbert The Baghdad Dream (live)

Steve Forbert - Honky Tonk Women (live)

Now these aren't necessarily Steve's best songs (by far), but they're all I have access to and well, I think they partly make my point. Doesn't mean you have to agree with me. Few people do.

Or maybe your response was shut up.

It's late and I'm still at work.

Poor little blog... O.O

The blog is suffering. Anyone care?

Was looking at my account and noticed the Police were in the top 15...felt obligated to take care of that and knock them strange is that? I'm manipulating the data to represent what I want others to see...or is it just for me?

I don't care. As long as the Police drop down a few spots. It's almost as bad having U2 up there. Thank goodness they aren't.
