Daily 360

0

The New York Times is doing one of those 365 photo projects.  Except it’s video, and it’s 360° video.  And it’s pretty cool. I am a believer in 360°, I think it will be the future.  However, we need to get the bitrate compression better for the videos.  Everything looks like crap. You can check … Continued

The Book Train

0

Did you know that there’s a book roller coaster/train in The New York Public Library? Me neither!  Apparently it’s a revamping of the old system of convener belts that were used to transfer books around the 8 story building.  It’s either we’re so modern, or wages are so expensive (thanks mandated $15/hr minimum wage), that … Continued

Garth Brooks at Yankee Stadium

0

Garth Brooks did two shows at Yankee Stadium this weekend.  The first time he’s been back to New York since his legendary Central Park show 19 years ago.  I went to both of his shows this weekend.  Yesterday’s included a 3 hour rain delay which only made the show that much better.  Here’s proof: the … Continued

360° Sam’s Point

I took my 360° camera out for a hike yesterday.  The weather was nice, but it was very, very windy, so the audio wasn’t great except for wind noise.

Grand Central in 360°

I think that 360° video will be the next big thing.  I’ve posted quite a few 360 videos in the last few months.  Well this year might be the time when consumer grade 360° video takes off.  Last month Samsung released the Gear 360 camera in Korea, they’ve been mum about when it will actually be … Continued

Billy Joel II

Yes, two posts in a row about Billy Joel because he’s that important.  This one will include a semi-review of the concert last night though, so it’s better.  Check it out, complete with pictures and video after the click, or whatever:

Autumn Hiking

0

It might not be the most wonderful time of the year, but it is pretty damn nice looking out.  Especially in the North East part of the country.  The fall colors are in full bloom up by Cold Spring NY.  The weather was nice for a late October day. One of the people I was … Continued

LETS GO METS

0

The Mets are in the World Series.  Would you look at that?  It’s been 15 years since they last made it in, that was a Subway-Series though, interesting, but one-sided.  This year’s series will be alittle different, still don’t know who the AL team is going to be, but The Mets don’t really care right … Continued

MSG Organist

0

Ray Castoldi gives us a behind the scenes view of what it’s like to be the Organist at Madison Square Garden.  It’s just as electronic as you’d thing.  Gone are the days when an actual organ was up there.  It’s cool that he actually plays some of the music though, and it’s not all just … Continued
