People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Voilà! In                                                       view, a humble
 vaudevillian                                                  veteran, cast 
  vicariously as both                                         victim and
   villain by the                                            vicissitudes of Fate. This 
    visage, no mere                                         veneer of
     vanity, is a                                          vestige of the
      vox populi, now                                     vacant,
       vanished, as the once                             vital
        voice of the                                    verisimilitude now
         venerates what they once                      vilified. However, this 
          valorous                                    visitation of a bygone
           vexation stands                           vivified, and has
            vowed to                                vanquish these 
             venal and                             virulent                   Remember, remember the 5th of November
              vermin                              vanguarding
               vice and                          vouchsafing the
                violently                       vicious and
                 voracious                     violation of
                  volition. The only          verdict is 
                   vengeance; a              vendetta held as a 
                    votive, not in          vain, for the
                     value and             veracity of such shall one day
                      vindicate the       vigilant and the
                       virtuous.         Verily, this 
                        vichyssoise of  verbiage 
                         veers most    verbose
                          vis-à-vis an introduction,
                           and so it is my
                            very good honor
                             to meet you
                              and you may
                               call me
                                  V.

Yes, I've seen V for Vendetta today. Very impressing movie, highly recommended! Makes you start to think...

kitty, a Qt/KDE based RSS podcast and video aggregator, is now in unstable

As mentioned earlier, I wanted to package the KDE videoblog client kitty for Debian. I finally found the time to really do it, and the package has entered Debian unstable a few days ago. The first bug has already been reported (sigh), but I'm working on it.

kitty got even mentioned in Debian Weekly News (w00t!)

2005 Machinima Festival This Weekend

The 2005 Machinima Festival will be taking place in New York City at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, NY, starting November 12.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about Machinima:

Machinima (a portmanteau word for machine cinema and/or "machine" "animation") is both a collection of associated production techniques and a film genre (film created by such production techniques).

As a production technique, the term concerns the rendering of computer-generated imagery (CGI) using low-end 3D engines (as opposed to high-end and complex 3D engines used by professionals) in video games (typically, engines in first person shooters games have been used). Consequently, the rendering can be done in real-time using PCs (either using the computer of the creator or the viewer), rather than with complex 3D engines using huge render farms.

Have a look at the popular Red vs. Blue if you have never seen a machinima video. Checkout more stuff from the Machinima Archive over at the fantastic archive.org.

I won't be at the festival, but I'm getting more and more interested in video in general and especially in machinima, so I'll probably create some films myself eventually.

Grayson

Batman is dead. Robin wants revenge. Welcome to Grayson, a great film by John Fiorella. Watch the Making Of (80 MB), too, it's well worth it and very funny.
