MultiMedia / People trying to cross the street during the NYC marathon

Sorryyyyy



I'm pretty sure this video is perfect. I like how people are so happy and excited once they've reached the other side of the street, like they'd just won them marathon themselves   :siderofl:

MultiMedia / Re: Line Rider with classical accompaniment

Imagine having the patience to do that. Wow.

Also, line rider seems to have a lot more tools now than it did 10 years ago. Like, there was no tool to draw a straight line so you had to left click then right click to bring up the context menu which let you move the mouse to where you wanted the line to end then left click again.

Now there's, like, 3 different types of lines!

I say it doesn't have holes, a straw is a hole. A mobile hole.

They've got 2 holes! One in either end!

Wow that's great!

I like In the Hall of the Mountain King as well, but it's sort of hauntingly inexorable quality keeps me from listening to it too often.  ;D

This guy sure has a lot of patience to work out something like this.

MultiMedia / Line Rider with classical accompaniment
« Last post by BFM_JANE on October 26, 2018, 11:57:34 PM »

Line Rider was briefly popular a few years ago, if anyone remembers. There's a Youtuber who's made a few videos using Line Rider and syncing it to popular classical songs.


This one's my favorite, mostly because I like Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King:




I think these are pretty fun to watch, they're so artistic and Line Rider is an unwieldy medium. I guess the guy who makes these spends a few months doing each video. It's all trial and error, redoing each line until the rider does exactly what it's supposed to do.

In these next ones, he got the creator of Line Rider to program multiple riders. I can't even get the thing to travel down a single hill, and this guy is juggling multiple riders, synced to music, sometimes with the riders and their sleds off screen for several seconds. It's a delight to watch! The time and patience it would take to make these blows my mind.

This is Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy from The Nutcracker play/ballet:




And Beethoven's 5th Symphony:

Hello fellow europeans who attend these races! Since US only turn their clocks backwards 1 hour on November 4th (and we, europeans do it on the 27th) we get to have these 1 hour earlier for the next 2 weeks (1AM GMT/2AM GMT+1). That's only for the 27th and the 4th of November.

I know haven't been showing up much lately and that's due to college and work. Haven't had any time lately :\

Can it really be called a garage if it doesn't have at least one old printer box in it?

You cut your lip on an ice cube?

An ice cube?

Your lip?

Cut?

Man I thought maybe it was just riding a motorbike that you weren't all that crash-hot at (get it?), but seems you can't drink without injuring yourself either!

Glad to hear the first op went well, heart surgery is never all that fun (what is fun is going swimming years later and people asking what the scar is from and making up all sorts of accidents and attacks, when I was a kid I milked the scar for all it was worth, so tell him he's got that to look forward to)

Bike's looking good!

I cut my lip on an ice cube. A square one. No edges.

Kyson's heart surgery was a success, hes doing great (apart from common cold/croup at the moment) and is due the next stage of surgery soon.

Apart from the PTA amnesia I'm doing better physically, back in work and having the time of my life with my family.

A busy year and the new life, still managed to get the garage time in though (woot!)  ;D
