My Black iPod Video 60GB

Posted by Mark

black ipod video 60gb

I just picked up my iPod from Aramex. Tivo Guy was there picking up his also. So far first impressions is that its big.. but thats comparing it to the Shuffle I have been using for the past few weeks and the iPod mini I had before that. I can’t compare it to my original iPod because I don’t remember how big and heavy that was. Compared to the Sony PSP the iPod is tiny and its way slimmer then my K700 Sony Ericsson. The screen is huge and the iPod looks really slick. The packaging is crap and tiny but atleast I saved on shipping weight that way. Here is the same picture as above but at a much higher resolution.

Coming to America

Posted by Mark

Yesterday night I watched Coming to America. I watched it for the first time back in 1989 and really liked it so I figured I would watch it again since I had completely forgotten it.

Anyway the movie wasn’t bad the second time around but the coolest thing about the movie were the very famous actors who played very small roles in the movie because they were nobodys back then. For example it was the first movie Cuba Gooding Jr. acted in. Cuba played the role of a “Boy Getting Haircut”. He was an extra with no talking part or anything! It was really funny watching him in such a crappy role! Second cool actor was Samuel L. Jackson. Coming to America wasn’t his first movie but it was one of his early ones. In the movie Jackson plays the role of a “Hold-Up Man”. Again he didn’t have a name but at least he did have a talking part. Eriq La Salle who plays Dr. Peter Benton on the TV show ER had a major role in the movie playing the part of Daryl, the boyfriend of the chick Eddie Murphy gets a crush on. The final person who isn’t as famous but looked very familiar turned out to be Victoria Dillard (her pic). I checked her out on IMDB and turns out she used to be in the TV show Spin City. In the movie she played the role of a “bather”. She basically was topless in the bath tub bathing Eddie Murphy. Its really weird watching very famous actors act in movies were they were still very unfamous. I guess everyone does start as a nobody.

FUCK YOU FOX!

Gob

Fox network have canceled one of the best and funniest shows ever, Arrested Development. This was the only show I enjoyed more then Seinfeld. Arrested Development is a very smart and really silly show with tons of amazing one of a kind characters. I don’t understand how they could cancel such a show. What will happen to Gob now?!?!

ffmpegx and iPod Video

Posted by Mark

A while back I posted about ffmpegx on the Mac and how you could use it to convert movies you download to a format the iPod could play. Well many people haven’t been able to setup ffmpegx correctly and the videos are coming out messed up. So here is my preset file with the right settings. [ipodvideo.ffx]
