DTube and more Tony Spinner.

While not fond of the 480p resolution, I do like the idea of a decentralized video and blogging platform that actually returns something. For more information on Steemit and DTube you can read up on it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steemit

My latest upload to DTube is Dirty Little Minx, a Tony Spinner video, enjoy!

A thought about video platforms

With the adpocalypse, channel take downs and the expected comment section crackdowns, I’m experimenting with other video platforms. While not as impressive as the platforms that I currently use DTube comes with a nice perk; Cryptocurrency! Yep, you can actually get something in return for blogging or posting videos. Check out the  link below for a sample of the first video that got me anything.

Elegant Decadence by Allen Hinds

Based on a New Orleans 2nd line, yes the funeral kind, a tune by Allen Hinds called Elegant Decadence with lots of breathing room for other instruments.


Caravan

Recorded by another videographer, Paul van Druten, Caravan by the Rosenberg Trio. YT is not doing anyone any favors so we must do it. Gypsy Jazz at it’s finest; Enjoy!


The Headline That Never Will Be

Here we go again; the worlds largest security threat makes no Newspaper, TV or Radio headlines once again. You don’t own your computer; they do! Go ahead and waste your money on anti-virus-spyware-malware what have you. They can crack your box anytime they want. I’ve posted on these issues before with this question: when taking your computer in for service, do you give them your password? No? Why not? You hand over your Car Key when you bring your vehicle in for service. When will it finally dawn on People that they don’t NEED your password to test-drive your computer. Information can be retrieved from or written to your system at any time. Think my 15TB of storage could hold stuff I don’t know about? You bet!

Carrier Pigeon anyone? https://www.networkworld.com/article/3236064/servers/minix-the-most-popular-os-in-the-world-thanks-to-intel.html


Bicameral.

Sure, lots of people shoot with multiple Cameras and match the footage in the edit, but with no graphics card, I can’t do that while processing 4K footage; I wouldn’t be able to see what the footage looks like before rendering. As a work around I use in-Camera settings to make 2 very different Cameras produce images that look  similar and usually get away with that. Of course trying to record in a dark Café with LED lights complicates things further, but hey, that’s the challenge that keeps it interesting. Here is another example featuring Allen Hinds with Rat Scat. Hope You like it.


What I’ve been up to.

Some have asked me what I’ve been doing lately. Well, ..video, and it takes up a huge amount of time. Rather than write about it, let me show you.

Think this is worth doing, or do you think I’ve gone off the deep end? Thanks for reading if you got this far.
