Optimized is a great idea! But I'll encourage WFMU to take a new direction and take the lead (like they did with the Internet*) to totally embrace and start experimenting with virtual reality to merge sound, video and reality. Magic Leap, Oculus VR, anyone? VJing is so 2016. VRing is the next thing!

* Thanks to Komissar Ken
  Wed. 6/8/16 7:45am ƑO² (:

Cory,

You and me together, from a top of a hill, watching the world go down in flames (including the Barenaked Ladies)!

But the only thing it really worries me is that Trump hasn't been assassinated yet by a time traveler. This could mean we might not have a WW3 coming after all :'(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/8/16 7:49am cory:

Problem with VR is that it's 100% pre-produced. Is anybody doing anything like live, real-time VR? Also, VR has an incredibly hogh barrier to entry. But it's an interesting notion.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/8/16 8:20am Cliff:

Ken, I know there's been some projects with live streaming concerts or sports events in VR using 360-degree cameras, and Youtube added the ability recently to upload 360-degree videos or livestreams. But I don't know any details about that, I've been focusing on game development.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/8/16 8:32am Cliff:

There's also AltspaceVR (altvr.com) which is a VR meeting space where you can create an avatar and chat with other people online. I think some of the livestreaming stuff has been done through them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/8/16 8:40am Ken From Hyde Park:

I'd like to request some of the animations from Pink Floyd's The Wall. The marching hammers, for example. If you can show the video for Don Felder's "Heavy Metal" around 11:00, that would be really garbagy!
  Wed. 6/8/16 8:40am ƑO² (:

Well, VR can add real time video editing techniques such as those from this experiment where one person's face expressions show up in someone's else face in real time video.

Does caffeine count? It's damnably strong, mind-altering, and incredibly addictive, but often gets a free pass because it's a drug your boss <em>wants</em> you to take....

(Note: Many Mormons do in fact drink soda with caffeeine, leading me to belueve that it is the civilised-but-intense pleasure brought by coffee and tea to which their founders fundamentally objected.)

The funny thing to me was that I read his essay on pot-smoking written as (I believe) 'Professor X' for William Novak's "High Culture: Marijuana in the Lives of Americans" years before it was revealed as being his.

I quit drinking coffee for 6-7 months and started again maybe a month ago. Feel like I was living in a haze for half a year. I'm glad I reset to a healthy baseline, but I don't think I'd quit again. It's a good "mild" anti-depressant, me thinks.

With a desktop (or a rooted/jailbroken device) , TotalRecorderPro (or equivalent) , and lots of storage, you could archive these using the 'analogue hole'.

@Murakami-I am guessing here, but he said the whole Transgendered bathroom issue should be left up to the states, so I guess he would leave this up to the states also...I am pretty sure he is a small government guy based on what I have heard.

What about transgender water fountains? And can they sit in the front of the bus?
  Wed. 6/8/16 11:26am Sam:

Maybe they should only let transgender people drink 7up, but not Sprite. To protect the children.

Yay for Schlammpeitziger!
  Wed. 6/8/16 11:41am ƑO² (:

Wait...Can you listen?

YES! IT IS SCHLAMMMPEEEEEIIITZIGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR!!!!

By the way, Schlammpeitziger is pronounced like:

Schlamm - Scam
Peitzi - Pretzel
Ger - Geiser

So it's like saying 'Scam-Peter-geiser'


I am pretty sure that's the way it is pronounced because I once did an introductory German course in 1998.
