Curse You Rusty Shackleford



Tigrismus Enhanced:



FYI here's the construction for anyone with access to a Mac:

Go to userscripts.org and get something that'll download video off YouTube. Download whatever you're interested in.

I could not bear to watch the whole Crowder video, or indeed the first minute of it. To get the stills I used Quicktime (you'll need to register it somehow, har har) and exported the video to an image sequence. Choosing stills that look like they might represent certain sounds is then pretty easy. Naming the stills after the sounds keeps 'em organized; I harvested at least a couple of each sound I expected Stapp to mutter. Avoided looking up the lyrics.

iMovie 3.03 lets you drop stills on a timeline, and you can squish or stretch the duration of still A by sliding still B after it to the right or left. Drop stills as appropriate. Slipping bits of audio in is trivial. The sandwich required one frame of sophistimacated Photoshoppery which you can see at the 30 second mark.

So: really not too much work at all. Which explains why I am so so very productive.

The older versions of iMovie still rule.

Have you seen this one? Creed truly does shred, especially live.

There's crowd laughter in that one. Pretty great.

Perhaps the internet will at last find a permanent place in our culture.

I like it because it takes two things that suck, and makes them funny.

Flash. Pan. Little assembly required.

Seriously though: couldn't you share recipes on the internet?

I think the internets might be a GREAT place to put photos of our cats, maybe even with cute little captions!

The video is good, but not mean-spirited enough.

Sheesh. Gimme a free minute and I'll crush him with a sandwich.

BEST!! VIDEO!! EVER!!!!

You really did a fantastic job fitting the mouth shape to the sounds.

It is my ambition to attract YouTube-quality comments.

tigris said...

People are ridiculously stupid. They rate poorly the comments of those who are for Giant Gibraltar Sandwich, and those who are against him get good rates! FU! Rate my comment however u want, I DO NOT GIVE A SHIT!

Righteous Bubba said...

God I want rating so bad.

One remembers the good old days when one could get a naval rating in a park and retire for an "life studies" course. O' course we had a bloody empire then...

This is beginning to sound like one of Harry Hutton's threads. Not that that's a bad thing, of course.
