Apparently the folken over at The Onion have figured out why the US behaves, well. The way we they it behaves:

U.S. May Have Been Abused During Formative Years.

In other news, I've not only discovered the wonderfulness that is Windows Movie Maker, but have found that it's preinstalled on my computerOMG. And! I've actually figured out how to do a couple of things with it. Geh, I'm already formulating a list in my head of Vids To Make. Granted, I suck at tech stuff, but with a good enough tutorial? Bring on the angsty Velvet Goldmine/HP/Babylon 5/yadda yadda muses, baybee. Of course, I'll probably be doing these from the nursing home, because I'm such a slow learner techwise.

However! I actually have Results from my practising today. I figured I should start with something I don't hate looking at. I mean, really, I probably wouldn't want to start with "Toxic Waste Dumps I Have Known" or "Naked Russian Tsars of the Past" (not that I have actual video of either of these, although the latter might be interesting, if perhaps somewhat repulsive). Might sour me to the whole thing. So, as my first easy-for-you-difficult-for-me project, I decided to clip what just might be

the most aesthetically pleasing 37 seconds of television, ever* (aka Thank You Canada).

It's all about teh kinetics. Objects in motion. Ray Kowalski meets Isaac Newton. Oh, yes.

You know you wanna fullscreen. Don't lie, you do. *maniacal laughter*

Oh, also, here's the song file that goes with it. Because it's just that cool:

Headstones - Cubically Contained.

Repeat loop OMG. I might just become a Headstones groupie. Except they broke up three years ago. Zathras is constantly late to the party.

I also learned to make screencaps, which you will be subjected to I will do as soon as I figure out the whole get-stuff-from DVDs thing.

In other news, my pantry counter is clean, my rent is paid, and I'm going to visit moonlight69 in less than a week.

Life is good, say thankya.

*Don't even try to tell me this wasn't choreographed. It SO was.

Ahahahaha! So true! The US does behave like an abuser who was abused as a child. Too bad that intervention is so difficult.

You might consider uploading videos that you create to youtube.com.

If I ever create them. Seriously, between ADD and tecchie-ineptness, it could be a while. But I have always had a fantasy about making a Babylon 5 video, since I saw one done using Led Zeppelin's Kashmir. Lovely thing. Long before sophisticated interwebz vidding. I think I have it on VHS somewhere still.
