    You've talked of trying to get more musical acts playing at the DNA. How much do you influence the booking process? I ask because some of your tastes could be called "fucking weird", and it seems like that'd make the process harder.

    Thank you for Miss Simpatia. My g/f and I are bumping it right now.

    I raise you a G-Dragon:

  3. "This video contains content from Vevo, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."

    Actually for those ones I can't even tell who it is or what it is. I guess that's one way to stop illegal downloading.

      Wow, that's some serious bullshit.

      I assume there are proxies you can use to get around this, but what a pain in the ass.

      • marc_lacoste says:

        the 1st and 6th youtubes are blocked. what are their names? a vid search is faster than finding a proxy, and is usable on any terminal.

        This happen often, unfortunately. Also for old posts, deleted videos without any clue of what they were.

    FWIW, this is pretty much the limit (or maybe 3 over) for viewing with the Linux/Firefox/Flash stack on a not-yet-completely-obsolete Athlon X2 box. Scrolling becomes an exercise in patience and the individual Flash instances are managing to fight each other for time even when they're paused. [Maybe it's only this awful with 64-bit Flash. Where "maybe" means "probably."]

    I suppose it's time for me to start using Flashblock at home.

      You realise that LiveJournal can do that for you? Under the preferences somewhere, you can set all embeds and non-tiny images to be placeholdered.

      Unfortunately, neither it nor FlashBlock let you re-placeholder things short of a refresh, which is pain when you get a few seconds into something, decide you hate it, and want to reallocate your meagre bandwidth to the next one down. Maybe a workaround is to spawn them out into tabs, which *sometimes* stops the embedded version properly.

        Logging in just to read stuff that doesn't demand it is the being-Canadian of the Internet.
        Polite. Neighborly. But they're snickering at you behind your back.

    • treptoplax says:

      Maybe it's only this awful with 64-bit Flash.

      It looks fine - er, rather, flash playback works ok - on my even more obsolete 1.7 Ghz Sempron running Debian, so either it is the 64bitness or YMMV.

      • gryazi says:

        Yeah, I think the other variable I forgot about is FF3.6. GNOME Epiphany"Web Browser" 2.28.0 a la WebKit gets slightly sluggish scrolling but not nearly as bad. Until you play a video, because Flash likes to let even more garbage paint through in that environment (or whatever happens when the YouTube controls start doing Pokèmon seizure flickery crap through the background of a movie, oh well).

    thank you for this. there should be more of it.

    Watched the first three videos, recognizing only the LCMDF-song, thinking "Who does this kind of weird shit". Turns out, my fellow finns are to blame. Oh well.
    Also, what the world needs is more videos with synchronized swimming.
