Here at The Lake I don’t get enough intertubules to watch a video reliably. So I can’t separate the DJ effect from the Slow Connection effect in this video, but it looks good:
Man, this is one fast-moving meme. I’ve seen this thing everywhere over the past week. It’s a catchy song, though, and Carl Sagan is awesome, so I’m cool with that.
Yup, I watch it every its posted (and many times to boot!). Sagan was the reason I got into Science, so hearing him speak always makes me a little emotional. Plus, it’s amazing just how rhythmic his speech is and how it requires little editing to match that of a song.
Cool, but I still prefer MC Hawking
That was awesome!
Since you are using Linux, here is a tip (that you may already know):
For (almost) any flash video that you are watching, look in the /tmp folder for a strangely named file. It is generally the last one (use ls -ltr). Once the video completes downloading, do not navigate away from the page (it will remove the tmp file). Instead copy that file in /tmp/ to somewhere else with another name and run it with mplayer. I use this method to keep flash videos for off-network play.
Note, the copy is not necessary to play it – you can play it directly, just don’t rely on the Ubuntu tab completion as it expects certain extensions. The mplayer -identify will give you hints as to how to name the extension.
