I have speed up double disease

I made these videos several months ago, both featuring music by Gamma Goblin.
Facts, and things I love. (Featuring Spin)
1/8 (Featuring Infatuation)

As an experiment in video compression, I tried speeding them up. The result was rather interesting, exposing hidden music.
Fast Facts 1/64

On the video, my ole buddy Roland said;
I'm looking forward to 1/128

That sounded like a challenge.
1/128 to 1/8192

On that last one, I accidentally typed the wrong song title in the closing credits out of habit. Sorry.

Facts Redux 1 - I like ducks

My regular bloggees may recall a short video I make back in December, 'Facts and things I love'.

But what if the few seconds dedicated to each fact isn't enough? Never fear, dear reader, here's the first of a series. Enjoy.

Coming up... I prefer to be behind the camera.

Descent Into Insanity (Toast!)

Bill the Warlock makes toast! Meanwhile, Bill the real person experiments with stop-motion animation.

Here's where I heard the music from.

PS. I've been listening to the music of Mr Strangelove. Have a listen to Dreaming Louise if nothing else.

Star light, can you remember me today?

So I was absent mindedly humming a little tune to myself. I wasn't really thinking about it, the tune just popped into my mind while I was thinking about other things. Then from nowhere, the chorus appeared, incomplete, in my mind.

Star light, can you hear me today?
Can you *mumble* *mumble*?
Tell me what you need.

I suddenly remembered that it was a song that must have been popular several years ago. I've not followed "the charts" in ages, but I do recall it had a clever (I thought so) animated video, telling the story of an ignored musician, who finally gets noticed by passing aliens. I had never seen it all the way through, but I had seen many small clips.

So I went to Google and YouTube, to see if I could any mentions of this song, or perhaps the band had put a copy of that video up. No such luck. I found that "MUSE" have a completely different song called Starlight, as do a New Zealand band called "Zed". I searched for the lyrics I could remember, but Google only found unrelated dialogue.

I'm now wondering if I only imagined hearing this song. Does anyone else know of it?

Facts, and things I love (Video)

Who is Bill? Here's a quick glance into my very brain! Mwa hahahaha!

(Google Video) (YouTube)

The music is the provisionally titled, Spin, from Gamma Goblin, who also did the music for . Many thanks, you're a star!

Ever since YouTube horribly mangled this earlier video of mine, I'll probably put a copy on both YouTube and Google Video in future. You can store a much higher quality of video with Google Video. Such a difference from what is now two divisions of the same company.
