    “a song recently remixed here at BB as a backdrop to a collection of game deaths” read weird, since it wasn’t a remix (none of the original bytes in it), you authored and posted the video in question, and the song was derived from someone else’s MIDI transcription of a cover of the original…

      I’m with you, jmtd, I don’t know why that remake keeps being called a remix. It is, as you said, a new version derived from already existing MIDI programming, which uses none of the original tracks. I like the version, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just a completely wrong use of a word.

    Excuse me.
    Excuse me.
    Excuse me!
    Why is there a man who looks /exactly/ like Curt Smith from Tears for Fears on the BoingBoing blog?
    Oh dear God. It’s you. The real you. The fleshy you.

    I decided to stick with the video game theme. Hopefully this doesn’t violate the “other peoples’ IP” rule (the castle is SMB3 and the guy is a manipulated version of Madden ’92 for Genesis.)
    I can do a longer loop as needed.

    Might have another entry in a few days…

    Someone should do a video for the amazing song he did with Melissa Kaplan of the band Universal Hall Pass… check out the song here:

    I’ll have to dig into my animations to see if anything would work.. hmm slideshow.. could I use to create the videos.. the only issue, is at the end of every video, it always says ANIMOTO.COM… not sure how well that would fly.

    Also how long is the set list? need to know the rough down beat – up beat time, so the video would be long enough…

    Curt was *awesome* on the TV show Psych. Good to see more about him.

    “please avoid anything using other people’s IP”

    but you can use my IP? sounds fair…

    A short abstract video for Curt Smith. Procedurally generated particle system roughly to the tempo of “All is Love”. No audio attached, as requested. Available in 1080p/30fps. Has black handles at beginning and end so suitable for looping.

    Is “favorite[s] such as Fake Plastic Trees, Drive or Yellow” just a list of random songs by other artists? That part of the paragraph is a little unclear, to put it mildly, since none of those are Tears For Fears songs.

    Hi there, here are the links to my animation for
    Curt Smiths residency. Its inspired by the songs
    ‘Perfect Day’ and ‘Aeroplane’, from the ‘Halfway,pleased’ album.
