Pretty pictures ... ugly realities ...

Oh, look, more pretty psychedelic pictures!

Of course, they accompany readings of my poetry, so you know they're dark, depressed, and seething with rage and isolation.

Step right up ...

September 11, 1994

I really wish these didn't take so long to "produce" ... pretty much an hour each between picking a poem to represent that month, doing an "acceptable" reading of it in Audacity, playing that file in Windows Media Player with a "visualization" running and capturing that with Fraps, then taking the resulting video and dropping it into Windows Movie Maker, tidying it up, adding title and credit stuff, then uploading the "final" video to YouTube. Plus, having to build a new page for that video/poem, with the text of the poem set up for HTML, and the video embedded, and then linking that to the year's poem listing. All in all, that pretty much fills up an hour (IF there are no glitches), and I can't see anywhere to be able to speed up the process.

These make it 3/4 of the way "done" with 1994 ... and I have more than 123 of these yet to do to get to the point where I have a "sample" for every month. So, give these a click so I don't get all depressed about nobody looking at them!
