Video: Naked and Gross!

If you wanted to see me naked, this is your chance!  If you wanted to see something really disgusting and foul that one of my roommates did, well, this is your chance, too.

1 Do you think he will clean it up? 

How many roommates do you have?  How did you meet them?  Were you friends before you moved in together?  How are daily or weekly "chores" handled in the household?

2 Sorry, F, but I am finding myself much more interested in your audio sync problem than your not wearing any clothes problem. It looks a bit better, but still off. I'm going to run some experiments.

3 Yeah, the audio issue is a puzzle.  I did notice that the rendered video is also out of synch.

I love the editing capabilities of this program, but the audio sync issue is very frustrating.

As for my roommates, that wad of pubic hair has been there for a week or two now, actually.  So, do I think he will clean it up?  Um.  Eventually?  The last time this happened, though, I wound up cleaning it up and it was very upsetting.

I have two roommates.  I met them through Craigslist.  I didn't know them before I moved in. 

The weekly chores are handled VERY poorly and every time I've suggesting imposing some sort of order or method for sharing the responsibilities, they've rejected it.  So, I try to keep my stuff in my room and as clean as I like it and one of the other roommates tends to clean the apartment once a week.  It's very frustrating.

4 Ok.  So, I have discovered something interesting: I re-rendered the video using Windows Movie Maker, which is what I was using before and the video is STILL out of synch.

This makes me think something is wrong with the source files my camera is producing.  But the camera doesn't seem to have any other settings for video other than the three resolution settings.

This makes me sad.

And, unfortunately, Qwertz, every time I do anything on video that is even remotely sexy, you're getting a shout out.  I know that fame can be a heavy burden, but you're just going to have to live with it.

5 Sigh.  I suppose I shall just have to bear that burden with quiet stoicism.

In the meanwhile, I borrowed Vegas 8 from a friend, but I am still entirely unable to duplicate your sync issues.  If you mail me 1) the file straight off the camera and 2) the file you rendered with Vegas, I might be able to tell you more.

6 I don't know your email address and as much as I want to email the Senechal, I'm not sure if that's a funny joke or if maybe there are other people involved there.

So, if you, or anyone else, is interested in this, the files can be downloaded from this link.

CLIP23.ASF = the original file
20080504-pubichair.wmv = the movie rendered from Vegas 8
20080504-pubichair2.wmv = the movie rendered from Movie Maker

In watching the original clip, I do notice some slight desychronization from the video, but not nearly as bad as what is seen in the rendered video.

7 You can find my email address here.  Actually, all the other people who work on my blog are neither a funny joke nor actual other people.  They're just different mailboxes for convenience.

The recording format of your camera is a bit more odd than I thought, but I don't think that's to blame.  I will mess around with these and try to get you a pipeline that works.

Also, turns out my friend only has Sony Vegas, not Sony Vegas Movie Studio, but I can get the latter from the library.  Gimme a few days to play with it.

Also: is that ... what I think it is ... in your left ... owch?

8 And by "you can find my email address here,"  I meant "you can find my email address here."

9 the out of synch is very enjoyable to watch  =)

it's interesting that you know it is pubic hair. means you took a look, eeewww.

i guess you only have one bathroom?

i wouldn't be able to live with a roommate like that. uncleanliness is very unattractive in the home.

11 In my left... ??

12 i think he was referring to the ring

Posted by: roberto M at May 05, 2008 12:48 PM (OquT/)

13 Ohhh... Yeah, I have my left nipple pierced.  That's a long, silly story that but it basically boils down to me wanting a tattoo but not wanting it to be permanent.  Or something like that.

14 I for one am always up for long, silly stories about people getting things pierced.

15 i smell a future blog posting

Posted by: roberto M at May 05, 2008 02:03 PM (OquT/)

16 Don't get a tatoo.  It's too permanent.  Do you want to be that fifty year old guy with the sagging skin and faded tatoo?  Go for a temporary tatoo if you like, but not a permanent one.

At the video store I rent movies from, one clerk if very into body modification with stretched ear lobes, tons of facial piercings, tatoos, and I assume he must have done some genital piercing too.  He keeps his fingernails long and painted.  Possibly with white or clear polish.  What will happen once he graduates from university and needs a real job?

17 It's really not very interesting, but I guess I could post about it.

Posted by: Flibbertigibbet at May 05, 2008 06:45 PM (KApsF)

18 I've watched this four times now. At least the first 30 seconds.
