video update

The new guitar player is taking a week to learn the material
He lives fairly far away and can’t afford the gas
I understand that
I’m not too worried about it right now because he picked up the material quickly

Meanwhile, I decided to start assembling the footage for Countrockula’s Theater for the Insane!
I have amassed a ton of clips over the weekend and have mapped out 3/4 of the show
Unfortunately, I am having trouble with the “feature” segment because everything I want to use seems to resist me getting the clip onto my computer

First it was “Moon Over Tao” and I never could get past the copy protection (pissed that I gave away my VHS before copying it) so I tried shooting the screen with my video camera
That technique works for some things but this time there were lines on the screen so I scrapped that idea

Next it was “Wax- Or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees
My copy is fucked and the internet doesn’t have a clip of the part I want (once again, I’m pissed that I don’t have a spare copy)

Finally, I have decided to go with “Tetsuo-Iron Man”
This is an incredibly important film and I need to address it before I move on
I’m ripping it to my hard drive once again and will keep it on file on the terabyte

Look for the next episode of the show in a week or two
