As promised, I finally got the video clip to work. Somehow it copied kinda stop-n-start, a few other problems, blah blah... but now it seems to work. Some background, in case you aren't a long-time reader here. Last summer I was lucky enough to get Bjork's Vespertine about a month early online, and of course loved it (don't worry, I bought 6 legit copies when it came out), was already a huge fan, and was so looking forward to her upcoming tour. There were also rumours of little surprise shows, where it would be announced only a day or two ahead of time, and would be in a smallish venue, perhaps 300-400 tops. Anyway, to make a long story short, I managed to get a pair of tickets by having like 17 browsers open on the day the tickets to the 100-seat show at Riverside Chapel was announced last September. I won't go on and on and on and on about it, just that it was phenomenal. And, lucky for everyone else as well, HBO taped it, and put part of it on their Reverb show last fall. My videotape copy isn't great, then transferring to avi format, then wmv format, well, I still think the clip is good. Although I don't care for their use of black/white cutaways - really annoying and pointless. Feedback on the clip is appreciated - will probably take down Saturday, Sunday at the lastest.
