I’ve decided to do something about my media deficit. ;) Yesterday, we
did a trial run of a video party. As usual, we went through several
alternate plans. It was lots of fun, though!
Plan A: Use the common TV room in the basement. Unfortunately, it was closed.
Plan B: Use the second-floor TV area. No DVD player.
Plan C: Use the second-floor TV area and hook up Simon Ditner‘s laptop to it. We had the right cable (you gotta love geeks with cables!), but couldn’t figure out how to select the video input.
Plan D: Use the projector Roger Yang brought and beam the video onto the wall of my living room. THe projector speakers turned out to be fairly good, so we didn’t need external speakers. (Good thing, too, as I didn’t know where I could find speakers.)
Plan D1: Watch Aardvark’d, a video about software development. The DVD that Jedediah Smith burned had problems, though.
Plan D2: Watch the music videos that Quinn Fung brought. Michael Gondry did the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which I enjoyed. The music videos were terrific. =)
Definitely mind-expanding, and not a bad beta party. We’ll do that
