Just got word that the founders of the Pirate Bay (the ever popular bit torrent) were found guilty of breaking copyright law, and are sentenced to a year in Jail, and a fine of £31m. If you’re not familiar with the Pirate Bay, you’ve either been living under a rock for the last decade, or you have a life. Either way, this is big news, and I must admit, I’m surprised that they were actually found guilty of piracy, and sentenced at all. The major fact of the matter that contributes to my bewilderment is that the Pirate Bay founders reside in Sweden (and from what I understand, copyright law is very loose, to non-existent over there).

Came across this pretty helpful VJ site called VJ Kung Fu / http://vjkungfu.tv. From the looks of it, it’s more like a community site, where users upload videos that touch on DIY methods for VJs, and what helps to produce the best live shows. This particular episode touches on the structure of a VJ performance. Thought it was pretty helpful for any other VJs out there who’re either just getting their feet wet, or are looking to expand their live shows with something a little more dynamic…
Looks like the guy in the tutorial uses a monome 128 to split up the structure of his visuals. Kind of a dope way of “structuring” video, while still making it more of a hands on experience.

Stumbled across these while searching for portable listening devices. Audio Technica’s AT-727 Sound Burger & AT-770 Mr. Disc. Yep! With names like those, it’s hard to believe that they never made the popular vote. Even though they may not be as portable as an iPod, it would be damn hilarious to catch someone trying to jog with one of these strapped to their leg. :)
