Old Boy Soundtrack, Japanese Humor, The Sultan’s Elephant

{youtubejw}ChpdohoLucs{/youtubejw}

It’s late.  For some reason, most of the day, the waltz theme to one of my favorite movies, OldBoy, has been play through my head.  I’m embedding a link to a guitar rendition of this tune played by this young guitar prodigy who’s rendition of California Dreamin’ is also worth a listen:)

On another note, I’m slowly working on learning the Japanese language.  At lunch, I checked out these videos of Japanese humor.  I thought they were rather compelling.

Oh, and somehow I came across this video

It’s from a performance piece in Europe called The Sultan’s Elephant.  

 

 

 

 

IBC – Day 1 – Adobe Production Premium CS4

 After my original writeup from the tradeshow, Creative Cow was told to pull their writeup by Adobe.  I then took mine down.  Creative Cow now has theirs back up, so, I guess I’ll repost my take on CS4.

CS4 is going to be cool.  At first, as I watched the demo, I wasn’t quite sure, but I realized they were building up to the real summit of what is going to be great in CS4.  

1) Broadened use of “Dyanamic Link” – ie, now you can move back and forth between Premiere and After Effects as well as After Effects and FLASH!!!!!

2)  AE and Flash – – this is going to be sick . . . AE layers can be pulled directly into Flash for animation (wow)

3) Speech Transcription  – – Premiere will automatically transcribe spoken works and make video libraries, as well as frames within the videos searchable according to the resultant text!

4) New Effects for AE?  A decent cartoon effect.  With a few clicks, it was actually fairly impressive.

So, there you go.  When I was at IBC, this was one of the things I made sure I attended at Adobe.  This was just a “sneak peak”.  I imagine there will be much more fun behind the new release (not to mention some of the stuff one can find on YouTube surrounding Photoshop CS4).
