The Brown Coal Tattoo

Don’t ask. Don’t tell.
The latest short video from Vandalia Rodworks. Enjoy!


Red Gold

Sorry it has been so long since my last post(s). I’ll try to pick it up a bit this winter.

Update on the video progress: I’ve started tearing apart some of my footage and I still want more raw footage. The edge just isn’t there yet. I met with Dr. Todd Petty and got an hour’s worth of footage of him telling all sorts of great novelties and anecdotes about brookies, but I need more. More More MORE.

Till then, have a look at a fantastic conservation video done by a much more apt production company than my own. I’d like to get a copy of this sometime to see, but if anyone has a copy already and wouldn’t mind me crashing your couch to watch it, I’ll bring beverages.

Colorado Video Short

Finally got around to putting some of my Colorado video together, enough for a short-fastandfurious-video anyway. Check it out…

Unfortunately, the resolution on the upload is not all that great so it is hard to see the fish in the water on the video, let alone the flies floating through the pools. I will probably upload a full resolution version in flash format to my website soon.

Castaway’s Musical Utubes VI

A few months back you may remember that I posted “Heart It Races” by Architecture in Helsinke. AIS is one of my favorites…def the best from down under. Dr. Dog is a band that I’ve come to like as well and that they did a cover of Architecture in Helskinke’s Heart it Races is only icing. I dig this cover. (also check out Dr. Dog’s “The Old Days”…great tune).

Just in case you missed the original version, here is another look at “Heart it Races” from Architecture in Helsinke (the original video is buried in another post…here is a more “live” version if you will)

This another one of my new favorite bands. The Seedy Seeds are from Cincinatti. They’ve got several tunes I like. Apparently they haven’t done any videos yet or at least I didn’t find any on my very short search on youtube. They are like a techno band with a shot of Appalachian banjo, the vocals are good too. All I could find on youtube were a few poorly filmed live performances. If you get a chance, listen to “The Little Patton” and “Changes Less The Moon”. This is a nugget from a performance last year…

New one from Deerhoof. Not their best stuff IMO, but worth a listen.

Smashing Pumpkins cover of Thin Lizzy’s Dancing in The Moonlight. Rock.

More on Colorado

In anticipation for the WVU vs. Colorado game I’ll pile on one more CO post then let it rest. For my readers here is Chris’ video of the trip including his great photography.

Let’s Go Mountaineers!

Back in the Saddle

I did some tweaking last night with my video editing software and it appears that I may be back in the video making business again. Shoo-wee, it has been a while since I cranked out some videography. Just so you don’t think I’m making this up I went ahead and took a portion of the summer brookiebum trip’s footage and put it into a short video for your viewing pleasure. This one took about an hour’s worth of post production so it isn’t overly polished. Really just an experiment in seeing how much stress the virtual memory on my machine would take. It went well. Also, on a somewhat related note, I have a wireless mic that works now. The last two were junk. So I’m ready to roll on finishing up the last bits of a DVD that I’ve been talking about for two years.

Now I’m leaving, on a jet plane…

Final blog post before Chris and I head to Colorado in the wee hours of the night. In preparation, let’s watch some of my photos from last year’s Montana trip again. By the way, I produced a 40 minute DVD in sort of a diary format of fishing in Montana. It is for sale at a ridiculous price of $10. I’ve sold enough copies to almost buy a cup of coffee at McDonalds. Don’t let the fact that it didn’t make the New York Times Bestseller list stop you from ordering a copy. It isn’t bad. I intend to do a lot of video on this trip as well. Only this time, I think I am going to morph this video in with eastern brook trout fishing for a feature DVD with a conservation of native species theme…something like “Eco Fishing: The Importance of Native Species”. What do you think? We’ll see how it goes. I’ve got a lot of technical garbage to do on my computer to get it video editing ready again.

This is wrong on so many levels, but you will laugh. I know you will

Castaway’s Musical Youtuberations V

Due for another one of these. Last week’s absence due to the bamboo rodmaking school zapped all my free time and had nary a minute to bang out a blog entry. I’m getting quite a backlog of great photos that haven’t been displayed. Maybe when/if things slow down I’ll post a few on here randomly.

Till then, you can suffer through some more musical youtoobs. The theme for today’s musical yootubes is ‘Alternative Rock/Beat/Techno female lead songs’. It’s a crazy mishmash, but all with the common thread.

Some more throwback…the most addicting song ever. You’ll hum it for the rest of the day. But at least it is really a good song.

Suzanne Vega – Tom’s Diner

Some stuff from M.I.A.. I’ve got a vision for how this song’s opening would look killer in a film feature. Open up with a fixed camera stationed on a moving car looking at the speeding roadside accoutrements while the subject’s vehicle rolls into the picture. That’s the opening this song needs in vision. Anyway, here is ‘Paper Planes’.

More gay disabling by ball hogging corporate music types on youtube goings on. So here is the dumb photo stand in for this song. Close your eyes and it may be better, but it is an interesting tune. My wife likes it to exercise to.

Shiney Toy Guns has a bunch of tunes I like. This is one my wife likes best for running. Again, punks disabled all the real videos so another gay stand in has to do. Le Disko…
