Cool - if useless - scripts I collected and used over the years. Because it’s useless to have socks if you can’t find it.

Come and dream the midnight dream
Komm Und Traum Mit Mir Den Mitternachtstraum
Come and dream with me the midnight dream
I’m used to read comics on my computer (all I have to do is to turn my notebook to the side, and view the pages as a slideshow) and since I installed iDVD, i was dying to try it out.
so, I decided to make a comics DVD, which means, a slideshow DVD with an entire comic collection. I wanted to make sure the navigation was the same or better than the paper version, so I decided for a comic I didn’t read it yet and I would surely love. alan moore’s promethea seemed like a good bet.
below are some screenshots of my progress. sadly, I realized I had no more blank DVDs to spare, so I have to wait till I’ll buy a new batch.
click on each image to view it bigger, with technical notes (another nice feature of flickr). then, roll the mouse over each square to read them.
DVD cover menu: this one is default from iDVD. since you can’t use more than 12 chapters and I had 31 issues, I organized each 3 issues on one.
chapter detail: iDVD shows the exact same folders and organization from iPhoto (pictures) and iTunes (music). it’s no good at refreshing, tho, so the best move is to organize all folders & pictures on iPhoto, and then start on iDVD.
project map: iDVD has a limit of 99 images on each slideshow, so a manga has to be chopped down, for example. it worked fine with american comics, tho.
disclaimer: I made it for my own consumption, and although I downloaded the entire collection from bittorrent (bad boy) I also own the editions. i guess I don’t have to bother about it, since ABC comics is a small company, and instead of think “ohmygod, those little rascals found another way to rip us off” they’ll probably think “hey, another source of revenue for our collections, and look: it’s cheaper to produce than our trade paperbacks!” (sadly, it only works good on dvd notebooks - you have to rotate the monitor to read it)
update:sadly, ABC comics is a branch of wildstorm comics, which is an offshot of DC comics, owned by warner. shoud I wait the media conglomerate unleash its minion of ferocious lawyers upon my (literaly) poor soul, or is the plutocratic police state of amerika not done yet?

i’m amazed with flickr. cute interface, nice features, the right policy (releasing their API for free to any non-commercial project).
i was getting worried about my picture collection growing impossibly big because of our new camera (it’s easy to get lost if you don’t index it wisely), but flickr is a good tool, both for image input (by web, mail, desktop app and bookmarklet) and output (groups, calendar, blog feature, this nice zeitgeist flash app on your left…).
since brazilians are migrating from orkut to multiply, I’m preaching my fotolog friends to move to flickr.
still MEA, RIT’s cary graphic arts collection
as a relief, and because RIT is all commited to printing technologies (just to give you a hint, they’re sponsored by eastman kodak company), i went to see the cary graphic collection…
the curator, a guy with a rosetta stone tie (and if you know about linguistic’s history, you understand the devotion ppl have with this rock), showed us:
- some medieval pre-gutemberg manuscripts, totally different punctuation, with animal parchment (
- some post-gutemberg printing… the funny thing is, they tried to reproduce the more they could the old technology (manuscript), but then pagination and other metadata started to surface (indexing, lead, diagrams, and all the stuff we can find on newspapers nowadays). probably the printer guys were dying to experiment with the technology, but the clients wanted the classic stuff… i can relate to that!
- and an original gutemberg bible page… the peak of it… i kept admiring the page, entranced by the aura of it. funny, coz printing press was precisely the tool that spawned the age of simulacra we live now, so destroying the very concept of “aura” in arts.
i understand that as it’s hard for a fish to understand the concept of water, it’s difficult for our generation to understand the concept of no-reproduction, so if you are too entrenched in our ouw age and can’t get all the raving about the printing press, read “art in the age of mechanical reproduction” to get a glimpse of the revolution it was. or, if you have time, read all “gutemberg galaxy” (i recommend to smoke a joint before, mc luhan works better this way :).

i’m slowly growing my book collection here in NYC…
roll the mouse over the books to read about each one (or two :)… incomplete yet…
ah, e a imagem original é essa ao lado, pra quem quer saber…
saí pra dançar. me senti muito inteligente hoje. pensei numa teoria que eu já tinha mastigado há um tempo, enquanto conversava com o criminal e agora com o rodrigo boecker (que é o tal amigo que reencontrei, jogador de rpg…). depois falo sobre isso.
aliás, quando eu conheci o boecker eu tinha 17 e ele 13. isso é era paleozóica pra mim, nossa memória precisa mesmo ser ho-lo-grá-fi-ca para eu conseguir remontar essa época…
tamos eu e ele no trackback, lembrando de como éramos (mas eu tinha auto-estima muito baixa - subterrânea, eu diria - e não sei se esse recollection me é saudável).
anyway, tá maneiro até então. if i burst into tears at any rate, i’ll let you know. ;-)
