Looking forward to Zune HD… and more!

This was a funny little video for a Friday:

I wish Microsoft would be a little less secretive about the upcoming Zune HD.  I’d like to know if it’s going to have enough storage to effectively replace my Zune 80.  I’d also like to know if I need to prepare to take out a second mortgage to be able to afford the device.

Event, Friends

That certain Shmoozability…

Presenting the Lincoln High School Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Louis Oliverio.

This is one for the time capsule, for sure.

I had been looking for this video for a while now, hoping to convert it to DVD before it was too late.  The video is now 17 years old, and I didn’t figure it would hold out much longer…

The quality is a little rough in spots (hey, it’s an old tape!) but it’s certainly viewable.  Again, there is about a thirty second intro that normally shows up on TV as a DVD menu, but viewing it over the Internet, well it’s just pretty.  And static.  The buttons don’t really do anything here.

The original editing for this video was done on a Commodore Amiga 2000 home computer.  All the graphics and effects fit in a mere 20MB (that’s megabytes) of space and that’s not mentioning the fact that the Amiga OS was also installed on the hard drive.  It’s amazing what tight code and a streamlined computer can do…

Anyway, enjoy this look back at a bunch of high school kids having a good time making music together, before mash-ups and YouTube were even thought about.
