After 5 or 6 years of running my 17″ powerbook into the ground, I have finally upgraded laptops to a 15″ Macbook Pro! I realized at the last VJ show, that I couldn’t rely on my old machine the way I used to. It had definitely reached it’s last legs and was warning me that it would soon die with all of this new action I had been forcing it to do. Not only was there unexpected pixilation to my video clips as I projected them, but they also played back slow and choppy. Seeing that was enough for me to make the decision that I had wanted to make anyway. Additionally my new video controller arrives today, and my old video controller returns from the repair shop tomorrow. I am geekingly excited to say that I now run with a fully professional setup and could not be more proud that I was able to make all this happen.
This week I’m cutting & collecting clips for my second collaboration with the ladies of Cutlery! We’ll be playing a short opening set at Monkeytown at 7:30PM sharp, finishing at 8PM. I received a few new spacey netflix DVDs that I’m dissecting right now, and hope to come up with some new approaches to the performance with all this lovely new machinery that I’ll be toting along.
Speaking of Monkeytown, if you plan on attending our show, please note that it’s highly recommended to reserve yourself a spot before showing up at the door! You can reserve a spot by clicking here and signing up!
