Floating City

I'm telling you, "Floating City" from the album Y Kant Tori Read (by the band for which Tori Amos was lead singer in the late 1980s) is the perfect Stargate: Atlantis song.

You went away
Why did you leave me
You know I believed you

Nothing explained
Where are the answers
I know I needed you

Tell me
Is your city paved with gold

Is there hunger
Do your people grow old
Do your governments have secrets that they've sold


Every night I wait
Take me away
To your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights
To your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play
In your floating city yeah
Floating city yeah

Turns off

Any of us that
Say that we've seen you

Tell me
Are we
The only planet

That can't conceive you
Will we be
Like Atlantis long ago

So assured
That we're advanced

With what we know
That our spirit
Never had time to grow


Is it weak
To look for saviors out in space

Little Earth
She tries so hard
To change our ways

Sometimes she must get
Sick of this place


Vidding Questions

So, pursuant to a potential vid, a few questions for all you vidders:

1. What software do you use?
2. Do you get your clips from AVIs on BitTorrent, digitize them from VHS tape, or edit them out of actual DVDs of the series?

Return to Teuncnation

For those not interested in Tori Amos's 80s hair band days, nor SG:A - you might be intriugeted to learn that the community of Balrog Cuttings in NationStates has been revived, in anticipation of NationStates II.

These days I don't have a lot of time to play with video recreationally (when I did it was fan-film and I taped everything myself.)

From a professional standpoint it's almost always easiest to digitize from tape. It's cheap and you get a lot of material to work with. And since you're squashing it for the net anyway you don't notice the quality.

My pro editing studio consists of Finalcut, iMovie (great for quick 3 minute pices) and a little gem called Strata 3D. It's a VR annimation package that allows me to create things that would be hard to film. For instance I have a copy of the stargate in my library that I could render and insert into any frame of video or a still.... like my tool shed... hey I like that. Open the door of the shed and there's the stargate.

Have I mentioned lately what fabulous taste in music you have and how I'd like to see some vids out of you?

Why, thanks!
I'll let you judge for yourself when I actually finish one - never having actually done a vid before, I'm just collecting resources (titles of editing software packages) and techniques.

darana recommended After Effects, so I'll start there.
