DNA Lounge update, wherein photos appear, and we try to make friends.

True Blood

Extended True Blood title sequence.
Which is nice.
Shame about the show, though.

Update: Video deleted, another copy is here. The song is "Rad Times Express" by RTX.

Scene missing! A video that used to be embedded in this post has disappeared. If you know of a copy of this video that is still accessible, please mail me so that I can update the link.

Your Honor, we object...

...on the grounds that Asshole Godzilla is an awesome name for a band.

This month, Toho ordered Arizona rock band Asshole Godzilla to forfeit its internet domain and stop using Godzilla in its name. "We gotta change the name of our band, because we're so scary hard that Godzilla and the people surrounding Godzilla want nothing to do with us," lead vocalist Nick Danger writes on assholegodzilla.com, which is being shuttered.

Toho was only the second lawsuit against Netscape that was my fault! Oh, the good old days...

DNA Lounge update, wherein note is taken of both ruffians and birthdays.


I got a new clock.

It's a pretty cool clock.
Except that it doesn't light up.
Or have an alarm.
Or run ntpd.
Or have any way to sync the minute-tick with other clocks except by waiting for it to tick,
pulling the battery, waiting for the other clock to tick, and re-inserting.

Actually when I put it that way,
I guess it mostly fails at clockery.
Pretty, though.

videos to clog my tubes with

Dear Lazyweb,

Youtube is now serving up HD videos with fmt=22. (Previously, the equally undocumented fmt=18 gave you slightly-higher-quality MP4.) But has anyone figured out what to throw at the /get_video URL to actually download either the MP4 or HD versions? All the things I've tried still result in it serving up the low-res version.

    Update: The trick is to use th t and fmt parameters only; provide others and it redirects you back to the flv version. My youtubedown script works more better now. It will grab the HD version if available, else the MP4.

Also, has anyone figured out how to download video from mtvmusic.com? The video quality is pretty crappy, and (contrary to their claims) it is far from being their entire catalog, but sometimes I'll take what I can get.
