Same text-to-video stuff behind the "have you heard about the fed" youtube vid that went viral.

Good job Noodles!

Have you thought of sending a link to the Energy Bulletin and other sites?

Dammit, noodes! Cheesy

I am also working on an XtraNormal video about Peak Oil! I was hoping to finish it today and have all you fine folks here review it for me.

(And yes, yours is a very good video! Smiley )

Entertaining  Grin    but I doubt this is the format that will get the message out to those that need to hear it. I would be surprised if they watch more than 20 seconds  Sad

Thanks guys.  This is by no means a magnum opus...I was inspired by a few that I saw, so I thought I'd crank one out myself.  It's probably too long, and not enough zingers.  I can't decide if I want to drop the link on a bunch of other PO boards to see if it gains any traction, or spend some serious time tweaking one until its perfect.  Don't wanna shoot my wad so-to-speak.

I'm trying to make mine SOUND perfect. The artificial voices don't competely capture Engish as well as I'd like. So I am tweaking and tweaking to get them to pronounce things the way I want them to. Such as:

"Holy shit! You are so screwed!"

This wording causes an unneeded pause between "shit" and "you." But then when I redo it as:

"Holy shit you are so screwed!"

This wording causes "shit" and "you" to get smashed together so that it sounds like "shitoo." So I changed it to:
 
"Holy shit chew are so screwed!"

And it works just fine now.

I have easilly a dozen edits like that where I am trying to get the voices to be more clear and sound more human. I have been working on it for three days now. MAYBE  it'll be done tonight. I don't have anywhere near as much humor in mine as yours does. But I want mine to be full of actual data and historical facts, for anyone inclined to go and look it all up.

Yeah, I had the same problem.  Word like "ignoramouses" had to be spelled out "ignore aim usses" and Obama was "oh Bah Ma".  I didn't take the time to get all the inflections right...but I wasn't about to spend too much time.
Looking forward to seeing yours!

Yep! Good old phonics works every time! Cheesy

Anyway, I finally finisehd my own video this morning. I'll be posting it shortly. 

And Duncan -- I think maybe at this point, that "dedicated forum" you were thinking about last year might be in order. A special forum dedicated to JUST the artistic offerings of Kunstlercast members (oriignal fiction, original videos, etc).

This guy just linked his video series to my xtranormal vid.  I've only watched a few so far, but I think you guys will like it...I'm getting a laugh from it!

Aww... Noodles - you made that?  That's awesome. When I saw it, like back in Jan/Feb. I had no idea.

It reminds of most all times I've ever tried to talk to anyone about Peak Oil. Plus, what is this s*** about Agenda 21 and a global government always coming up? The "Agenda" is actually nothing more than wishful thinking that has the following basic aims:

Quote
-Combating poverty
-Changing consumption patterns
-Protecting and promoting human health conditions
-Promoting sustainable human settlement development
-Integrating environment and development in decision-making

Anyway, off topic. Thanks for posting Noodles. That video was awesome; and I agree with our new friend on the board when I repear:

Topic discuss is really nice and surely i will continue here.

Man - these Spam'mers are really pushing the colon cleanse.
