Myspace webcast of Nashville.
« on: October 22, 2006, 01:27:00 PM »
It's been talked about in the newsletters, and Ben's profile is now one of the Featured Profiles on myspace. They've said that Ben'll be taking requests from the internet, and the myspaceIM logo goes across the flash ad for Ben's page/the album/event. So, don't forget to go download that before the show, because you'll need it, if you want to request anything.


I vote we all gang up and request some old classic Ben Folds Five song that hasn't been done live in a long time.

Aren't you going, Allison?
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

No, didn't manage to find someone with an avaliable guest spot. I unfortnately didn't make it in. Apparently you would have had to registered Friday to make it in, and I didn't even know about it til Saturday. And I contacted several people who had guest spots/possiblities, and they were all filled by the end of it all. I even offered to pay whomever they were to take that spot. Guess it wasn't meant to be.

I'm going to a show first weekend of November. TWO of them, actually. Back to back shows. Tulsa, OK and Columbia, MO. And, it shall be beautiful. And I'll take the poster then, the friend I'm going to those two shows is also going to the show in Indiana and one of the New York dates (I'm a jealous person of that).  So if we don't meet him after those nights she'll take it along. She's the Y in birthday. So she sure understands.

We wanted to also go to the Kansas show, but it unfortunately sold out before it went on sale to the public. All the silly students bought it up. Boo.

Wow, you have a busy Ben schedule ahead of you both! Hopefully he'll make it out to the great northwest, as I've only seen him once....

Hell yes.
However, I am absolutely brain-dead right now and can't think of a single song.
Anyone have any suggestions?

You know what time this is UK time? 2AM! Eurgh! Not good for those of us who have jobs!

Anyway, I was looking at ways to record this. A little piece of free screencapture software and a relatively good spec PC seems to be the way to go. Any volunteers?

Um, walk me through it tell me what I'd need to do, and I'm more than willing. I just don't know how.

Seems this version of camstudio (free) will do the trick!

http://www.brothersoft.com/dvd_video/cam_tools/camstudio_download_3944.html

Basically you want to be recording a set region. I've been testing it with the general videos on myspace, and it seems to work.

The way I do it -
Open CamStudio
Options>Video Options
Codec: Microsoft Video 1
Quality: 100
Keep 'Auto Adjust' checked and move the slider until playback rate is 50 frames/second.

I had to experiment with the sound, but basically you want to set:
Options > Record Audio from Speakers
then go to
Options->Audio Options> Audio Options for Speakers and do the Auto or Manual search (for me I had to do a couple of manual searches to get it to work).

Then:
Region->Fixed Region.
Click 'Select' and drag a box over the video window. Click OK.

You're good to go! Hit 'Record', then click the region (you'll see what I mean), and off it goes.

To stop, press 'Stop', and it'll ask you for a filename.

That works with the flash vidoes, but I've no idea how MySpace will be running the live feed. Might work, might not! Who's willing to have a play with it?

everyone, request three songs over and over... demand them...

ROCKY
GUILTY
COOL WHIP

if he plays any of those, it will be a done deal.  seriously.  can you imagine if he did "Rocky"?
nobody deserves posts on their myspace site asking if they stabbed basketballs.
