NSFW: explicit sex, drugs usage, body modifications, flashing images
For the next 4 hours we'll get crazy with our video equipment (Resolume, a camcorder and an old CRT TV, a video synthesizer, distortion devices and mixers) to make live visuals for the hypnotic, dark, unforeseeable music compiled and mixed by Sunset Motherfucker.
We've been doing this for almost 1 year now, twice a week, as a collaboration with the Berlin-based queer techno party "Interzone".
Join us! We're streaming at this link:

Reminder that "open directories" are a way to download movies and other content. With some effort and luck, you can find great content.
Currently looking at an open directory that allows you to download -among others- Microcosmos (1996), Fantastic Planet (1973), Koyaanisqatsi (1982), La montana sagrada (1973),
Akira (1988), Ghost in the Shell (1995), Blue Velvet (1986) and other Lynch movies and various Studio Ghibli movies.
- open directories come and go all the time, sometimes in a matter of days
- it makes sense to periodically check out https://www.reddit.com/r/opendirectorie
- have a list of content you're looking for, and as you find a new directory download everything you can

finding fun stuff while studying perturbation theory
hacklab and i set up an online creative coding course for using Processing for video synthesis stuffs. was thinking it would be like 10-20 folks max but looks like maybe 100 have signed up so far? beyond even bandwidth issues i'm trying to think about ways to make this kind of a thing work with large numbers of participants. i much prefer smaller classes and lab style stuff to large scale lectures but am curious if anyones taken large scale online classes like this and has any advice?
working on some documentation for this weekends #video_waaaves class and using NDI biz to get around!
Trying out self-hosted live streaming powered by webtorrent.
So far I have set up an nginx-rtmp server that serves an hls stream. I mostly followed tim's guide here: https://github.com/langolierz/scanlines-technical-details/blob/master/streaming-setup.md
