A Realization from YouTube’s Live Broadcast of U2’s concert in Rose Bowl

I like the idea of live broadcasts for concerts. It’s a special treat for those who won’t be able to go to the concert because either you are located miles away from the concert venue and you do not have the money to splurge for transportation and ticket prices are not affordable enough. In addition to that, for those who were not able to buy the tickets because it was already sold out. Continue reading “A Realization from YouTube’s Live Broadcast of U2’s concert in Rose Bowl”

WordCamp 2009

I’m glad to be part of WordCamp Philippines 2009 🙂 . My talk was about “WordPress: The Ultimate Content Management System”. I showed the audience on how one can use WordPress as their CMS with the use of templates from WooThemes as an example. My talk was rather not really technical as I didn’t want to show coding during the presentation since I felt that not all people who are present there would understand if I present something that would require them skills such as PHP and HTML.

Apple’s Garage Band Demos

I’ve used my Garage Band to create a remix and to edit some of my mp3s that I’d like to have as ringtones for my iPhone. It’s a sleek software that will make music geeks really happy because of the things you can do with it. For those music geeks, you may want to go some Apple stores today and tomorrow so that you can check the schedules. Continue reading “Apple’s Garage Band Demos”

Awesome Philippines: Promoting RP Tourism in the Digital Age

Second Life Preview (exploring RP in second life)

Awesome Philippines is a project of Department of Tourism and MTV Asia. The website, www.awesomephilippines.com, showcases video remixes by various users that are entries for the contest “Remix your Holiday”. The goal is to create a personal video of your dream vacation in the Philippines. The winner of the contest (and his/her friend) will get to experience a free vacation. 😉 In creating the video remixes, you won’t be uploading anything. You’ll just have to choose the photos/videos. Add music to it, add transitions and effects, graphics and text. 🙂 Continue reading “Awesome Philippines: Promoting RP Tourism in the Digital Age”

Recording Eraserheads Final Set as Played on TV

spottedateheadsfinal-1

The setup was pretty simple. I used my iPhone with the Griffin iTalk app (quality was set to Best, file format produced is AIFF). No cable was attached to the TV and to the recording device (iPhone). I know this is an amateur bootleg but I’d like to check the results. I enhanced the volume of the audio by amplifying it using Audacity (result is an mp3 file 256kbps). I also added Fade in and Fade out but not on this audio sample (see the audio player below).

Good thing it was quiet in the sofa, plus, the dog was not barking. Good thing he was cooperative. LOL. I had to turn off the electric fan so that its sound won’t be recorded as well. Yep. Sacrifices. 😀

Anyway, I was kinda disappointed with the quality of audio that went with the video shown.

Here’s a sample of the result. I’d like to show more samples but the upload speed right now is so slow. 🙁

By the way, I saw myself too on the concert. LOL. Just my eyes, nose and my camera. It is because the bouncer was blocking me. Argh. 😀
