dLoad Elephant's Dream

Today, on the Small-Screen Media Guide (SSMG) you'll get the chance to download a copy of "the world’s first open movie" an animated film called Elephant's Dream, made entirely with open-source software, and freely available for download and sharing via a Creative Commons [creativecommons.org] license. (Remember, Creative Commons is your friend.)

Elephant's Dream was made by Orange Open Movie Project, located in Amsterdam. The short film was finished in 2006 and released online along with all of its production files, which are also available to use under a Creative Commons license. (And although the movie received buzz when it was released, I wanted to highlight it today for those that missed it, as it's an interesting project and concept.)

Not only are you encouraged to download your own free copy of the movie -- and there are several resolutions on offer to choose from including an portable media player-friendly formats -- but, you can also use the production files and some open source graphics software (like Blender) to create your own remake or sequel. Now that's progress!

There are quite a few other goodies at the web site [elephantsdream.org], including behind-the-scenes footage, updates on the project, production photos, soundtrack MP3's, information on the open source graphics software used, and more. So feel free to browse, while downloading the movie.

You're also welcome to purchase a DVD and have it mailed to you.

I'll start you off at the download page, and you can take it from there.

Elephant's Dream dLoad [web].

NOTE: The soundtrack MP3's are available from the Images & Music section of the Elephant's Dream web site. If you only want to grab the portable version of the film, then you can express to this (external host) location: Portable dLoad (iPod, PSP, and 3GP versions).

Enjoy!

Planet Heroes DVD

Today, something for the kiddies or the young at heart. (I don't wanna grow up.) Fisher-Price has created several toy lines that also have multimedia components. The toys may have their own animated videos, theme songs and more. It's part of the "get 'em on all fronts" advertising strategy.

One of the popular Fisher-Price toy lines is called Rescue Heroes. Rescue Heroes is based on characters who perform emergency services duties (like policemen, firemen, etc.) and these characters go out to save the world from emergencies and natural disasters.

Now Rescue Heroes has spawned a counterpart, called Planet Heroes. And you guessed it -- their job is also to save the planet (and the rest of the universe), but this time from extraterrestrial threats. Fisher-Price (and its parent company, Mattel, Inc.) currently have a multi-angle promotion going on for its launch of Planet Heroes.

First, when you head over to the Planet Heroes web site, you can watch a trailer for the new Planet Heroes DVD. (You'll need Flash to view the trailer.) Next, you can listen to the Planet Heroes Theme song while there. (The web site also has background information on the series characters and other goodies.)

But that's not all...

While supplies last, you can order a copy of the new Planet Heroes DVD for free! That's right you can get a physical DVD shipped to you featuring the first animated episode of the Planet Heroes series for nada. (You'll be asked to fill in a form with mailing info, and that's that.) Once you receive the actual DVD you can, of course, rip the episode and put it on your portable media player. (It's only 20 odd minutes.)

Additionally, there's a comic book for the series that you can download a printable copy (PDF) of for free -- or just view online.

Then just to be cool, you can also download an MP3 of the Planet Heroes Theme song for free as well. So what are you waiting for?

The free offer for the DVD won't last for long.

So get over THERE [web] now!

Los Pantalones En Vivo

Candleboy Films [candleboy.com], a small production-house located in northern Vermont, is currently in post-production on two films about legendary Burlington, Vermont rock band The Pants. One film is a documentary, called High Water Mark: The Rise and Fall of The Pants, and the other is a live concert performance, titled Never Too Late: The Pants Live at Higher Ground, which was recorded during a one-time-only reunion show in May 2006.

In honor of the 1-year anniversary of this reunion show, award-winning Vermont filmmaker Bill Simmon [billsimmon.com], head of Candleboy, has just announced the release of a sneak preview of Never Too Late on his Candleblog. In this preview clip, you can watch The Pants perform two songs, Rockers Rock and Vermont.

You've got three ways to watch the preview:
1) The clip has been put online as a lo-res version on YouTube (thus the video above), but
2) You can also see it online as a "5.1 surround-sound QuickTime movie version" (QuickTime 7 or later is required) on the Candleboy Films website -- definitely recommended -- and
3) Grab your own DTO copy in an iPod-ready format (35MB, MP4, Stereo) from the same place.

So get over to Candleboy Films and relive a little music history! See The Pants "live" in surround-sound! And then download your own copy for posterity's sake.

Go HERE! [web]

Sign-up for the Candleboy Films email list to get updates on the release of the full films, screening information, and other goodies. You can also get more info on The Pants via the band's MySpace page [myspace.com/thepantsvt].

Black Keys Live EP

The Black Keys, that raw and urgent sounding blues-rock duo from Akron, Ohio -- WTF? Akron? Blues? -- have put up a 4-track live EP (Nonesuch, 2007) for download on their MySpace page. You can snag live versions (MP3) of No Trust, Elevator, Girl is on My Mind, and/or 10am Automatic all free and clear, and with the artists' blessing.

I first discovered these guys a few years ago (prior to all the big-name media buzz) via some MP3's freely given away (by the band), and I've been keeping tabs on them ever since. If you can catch them live, do. Maybe this EP will help to tide you over until the fellas head to your hometown.

Visit the Black Keys MySpace page [web] to download the tracks from its jukebox, and check for upcoming shows or other band information.

FYI: I made a screenshot of the "Live EP" album cover from the jukebox, as the downloaded MP3's don't contain any cover artwork.

What would happen if the Black Keys and the White Keys got together?

Birds Do Fly


HBO [hbo.com] has bucked tradition (its own) and released its latest comedy series, Flight of the Conchords, on the internet of its own accord. Known as a company which forcefully polices illegal downloads of its content, HBO has seemingly decided to knockout piracy by allowing legal downloads (and streams) of the first episode of this new series.

Flight of the Conchords is a fictional reality TV show (from the site)
that follows the trials and tribulations of a two-man, New Zealand digi-folk band as they make their way in New York City. The band is made up of Bret McKenzie on guitar and vocals, and Jemaine Clement on guitar and vocals.

Bret and Jemaine have moved to New York in the hope of forging a successful music career. So far they've managed to find a manager (whose "other" job is at the New Zealand Consulate), one fan (a married obsessive) and one friend (who owns the local pawn shop) -- but not much else."
The premiere episode, Robots, doesn't take a bow on regular TV until 17-Jun-07 at 10:30PM ET, but you can officially download it now courtesy of HBO. It's an "embedded freebie" (podcast episode) that's available via iTunes. The podcast also has some shorts regarding the series that may be of interest to the "true" fan. (And because HBO has made a legal stream available you can watch it online, as well, at HBO.)

Download Option: Flight of the Concords - Robots [iTunes] podcast (Full Episode)

Free on iTunes [iTunes] Page

You will also need to install their movie download management software. (The web site requires IE.) But if you are hankering for the pilot episodes of Daniel Boone, Gumby, I Spy, The Invisible Man, My Favorite Martian, and The Shari Show, it might be worth it. I nabbed them all, of course.

In the Pirkinning

Fan films sometimes get a lot of hype -- especially when it's obvious the fanboys -- and fangirls -- really get it. But whether overlooked or underground sensation, fan films, as an idea, are an interesting addition to the plethora of media available online.

And yes, sometimes the fans actually do a better job than the "big-name" movie they emulate. Sometimes fans are just crazy. In this case, you get to decide, when you download Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning for free. What is Star Wreck [starwreck.com], you say?

From the horses mouth:

Star Wreck is a feature-length science fiction parody made in Finland. The film took seven years to make, but in the end we had a film with amazing special effects, action and lots of dark humor."
This group of fans has gone so far as to make several versions of their film freely available (versions subtitled in various languages), and one can choose to watch the film online (such as at Google Video) or download your very own copy for free. There is even a mobile version available for download.

It's up to you, but do check it out: Download Star Wreck [^web].

Infamous Yule Log

Everyone has probably come across the Yule Log screensaver in some form or fashion. (It was even available as a visualizer selection in Windows Media Player.) Well some brilliant person has ported this beauty to the small-screen, making a crackling Yule Log fire video that's playable on an iPod (MP4, 3.26MB).

Need a little pick-me-up when stuck in your cubicle? Dreaming of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but stuck in a sales meeting? Now you can carry the fondness of the winter season in your pocket (providing you have an iPod or other suitable portable media player) wherever you go.

Get out the marshmallows, Jeeves! And stoke the fire! By getting your Portable Yule Log video here [save as] -- courtesy of WGN TV (Chicago's CW) [wgntv.trb.com].

Oenology Spectator

The science and study of wine and winemaking may be a daunting undertaking for casual drinker. A good thing it's possible to enjoy wine without understanding it's technical dynamics. However, it never hurts to delve into a subject of interest. And there are a plethora of publications (online and off) that cover the wine spectrum. One of the stalwarts is Wine Spectator magazine (I'm a subscriber).

As part of its online offerings, Wine Spectator [winespectator.com] has created a series of videos (available via individual download or podcast subscription) that sample the goings on in the world of wine. So you can follow along virtually at your own pace.

From the site:

Join Wine Spectator as we talk with winemakers, tromp through vineyards and, of course, taste some wine. We hope you'll enjoy each sip. Cheers!"
There are well over 50 videos for your enjoyment -- going back several years. (Bacchus would be proud.)

Que the virtual wine tastings, Jeeves! Get Wine Spectator Video [web].

Mother's Day For Peace

Happy Mother's Day to each and every mom!


Download Option: Grab the above video as a QuickTime movie [save as], or its audio track as an MP3 [save as].

Mother's Day For Peace [mothersdayforpeace.com] is an online movement to reclaim Mother's Day and help children in need (via donations) in the process.

From the site:
Celebrate the true meaning of Mother's Day. In 1870, after the devastation of the American Civil War, social activist and poet Julia Ward Howe wrote the original Mother's Day Proclamation calling upon the women of the world to unite for peace.

This Mother's Day, celebrate the true meaning of the holiday by giving your mother an e-card with a donation to No More Victims. No More Victims is a non-profit organization which brings war-injured Iraqi children to the United States for medical treatment. Your contribution will help bring Salee, a ten-year-old girl who lost both of her legs in the war, to Greenville, South Carolina where she will receive surgical treatment and prosthetics."
The donation goal for Salee has been reached. Any donations in excess of the targeted amount go toward helping another child. The organizations behind Mother's Day for Peace are also planning a donation drive for Father's Day.

Please Steal This Film!

Hopefully, you've already heard of the Steal This Film project [stealthisfilm.com]. You've already seen the video on your iPod or computer screen. If not, here goes...

Quoted from the site (I corrected the typos):

In 2006, a group of friends decided to make a film about filesharing that *we* would recognize. There have been a few documentaries by 'old media' crews who don't understand the net and see peer-to-peer organization as a threat to their livelihoods. They have no reason to represent the filesharing movement positively, and no capacity to represent it lucidly. We wanted to make a film that would explore this huge popular movement in a way that excited us, engaged us, and most importantly, focused on what we know to be the positive and optimistic vision many filesharers and artists (they are often one) have for the future of creativity. Hopefully you'll enjoy the first part of Steal This Film ('Stockholm, Summer 2006')."
Steal this film here [torrent]. (This is the iPod version.) There is also a Regular Version here [torrent], and a DVD Version here [torrent], in case you'd prefer a large-screen viewing.

Media for geeks by geeks...

Indya on Demand: Trial

Indya.com, a portal which bills itself as "the best of Indian Entertainment," has launched an on-demand store serving up episodes, music videos, and movies from it's TV programming catalog. This is a paid download-to-own service, with music videos currently priced at $0.99 USD, and most shows at $1.99 USD. (There are some multi-episode bundles and TV specials that cost more.)

The service is aimed at fans of Indian TV living abroad (the diaspora). As such, currently only US residents can download from the service. Most of the shows are in Hindi (which I don't speak, but I know quite a few people who do). Check the item's product detail page for all the relevant data. (The site design could be more fluid, but it works as advertised.)

Downloaded files are protected WMV (DRM'd) -- you can watch them on your computer, but they can also be sync'd to certain Plays for Sure mobile devices for on-the-go viewing. (See the site FAQ for more details.)

One can purchase episodes of shows like: Koffee with Karan, Karam Apnaa Apnaa, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge I, Khichdi, and Jodee Kamaal Ki. There is even a kids section with episodes of Akkad Bakkad Bambey Bo and Shararat.

During the trial period anyone (willing to register) can download specific episodes for free*. (Generally, the free episode is the first in a TV series.) There are about 14 episodes currently available for free*, so this is a good time to try out the service.

For example: You can try out comedy programs Khichdi (EP01) or Sarabhai vs Sarabhai (EP01) , or celebrity game show Jodee Kamaal Ki (EP01) for free*. You have to find the freebies; they are just mixed in with the rest.

TIP: The best way to locate the free episodes is to go under the main subject header (like Comedy), select the "all" designation (such as "Comedy All"), and when this page displays, change the sort field to "Price" (leaving the sort order as "Ascending"). This will put all the zero-dollar items at the top of the page.

*NOTE: In order to purchase items (even the free episodes), one is required to create an account with the service. To do so, a valid credit card is required to verify identity (the credit card is accessed a $1.00 authorization-only charge, that should automatically fall-off the account after a few days).

The nice part is that this is a download-to-own service (as mentioned earlier) so the episodes are yours "to have and to hold" once you purchase them. The service even keeps record of your purchases in your account history page, in order to allow you to re-download items in instances of hard drive crashes, etc.

Go here to create an account and download some Indian TV!

Each "disc" is nine tracks, and the package comes with complete cover art, liner notes, etc.. So that you can burn the downloaded tracks to disc and make your own CD/s.

Steel This!

UK alt-pop artist Paul Steel [paulsteelmusic.co.uk] has made an MP3 of his song April (from the album April & I) available for free download. As an added bonus he's also included the video [mpg, 13.78MB] of his song Honkin' (On My Crack Pipe), which should be downloaded on the basis of song title alone.

Go here to snag them both.

BTW, Steel's (flash) web site plays snippets of from several of his songs, in case you don't know who he is, and would like to know what kind of music he makes beforehand.

Paul Steel plays a show at The Metro in London tonight.

He's on Stone Mountain

"Just two good ol' boys, never meaning no harm..."

Certain things enter into the public consciousness, whether for good or bad. Shared memories, global incidents, and ...annoying songs. Not that this is one, mind you. (Waylon is classic.) But this brings me to...

The Dukes of Hazzard (buy) -- set in the fictional Hazzard County, Georgia and recently remade into a big-screen movie -- is rather iconic (or is that ironic?) and if there's one thing everyone recognizes (besides Bo and Luke), it's The General Lee and it's unique/ubiquitous caterwauling horn.

Now, you too, can annoy your mates and impress yourself by adding this sound to your cellphone (or computer). It's this week's free MP3 ringtone from Nextones [nextones.com]. Get it here [save as] -- expires at week's end.

NOTE: Remember to check Nextones weekly or thereabouts, in order to pickup a new (random) ringtone for free.

UPDATE: Apparently, I'm not the only one with a fondness for the General Lee. Lookit.

Mojito, por favor...

Remember a while back when Mojitos were all the rage? Everybody was getting in on it...

Even James Bond. Good ol' 007 (Pierce Brosnan) goes to Cuba in Die Another Day (buy), and orders a Mojito at a beach side bar. There is a Bond Girl named Jinx (Halle Berry) in a bikini, and the rest is, as they say, history.

Well, last summer (2006) Bacardi® created a special web site [bacardimojito.com] exclusively for the Mojito (and to advertise the rum). One of the site's promos is a free iPod video (.M4V) demonstrating a classic Mojito recipe.

Download it here: Bacardi® Mojito Video [save as], and get ready to muddle.

This summer you can help to bring back the Mojito! That's right, now you can whip out your trusty iPod video, play the clip, and whip up some tasty Mojitos for your next summer BBQ. It's sure to impress your mates, right?


UPDATE: 06-Jul-07 | Get the Bacardi® Mojito Ringtone -

Bacardi® has also made it's Mojito theme song available as an MP3 that's designed to be used as a ringtone. There are two versions:

1) Get Mojito 1 [save as] ringtone
2)
Get Mojito 2 [save as] ringtone

Nab 'em both, if you like.

NOTE: The Bacardi® Mojito Cocktails web site and Bacardi® Mojito downloads are intended only for those of legal drinking age.
