Born To Be Wild – Steppenwolf (+Photos !)


(Experimental)

After some hours of trying to make a still photo slideshow with ffmpeg, I gave up. Some of the features are missing on the Windows version, would probably have been easier using Linux.

So I used the inbuilt video editor in Windows 10 to take a bunch of still photos, add music courtesy Steppenwolf. Then finally added my watermark of DonCharisma.org with ffmpeg.

So, long story short – it’s some photos I took, with music 🙂 Experimenting with a different format for presenting my photos – rather than a long page of photos.

Just The Two Of Us – Bill Withers – Valentines Day Special


Sorry it’s a bit late, I only just thought of it, I’m terrible with dates …

No idea if this is the best or even the right photo for this, but I like the bohemian thing going on with the guys just chillaxin’ playing games on their smartphones.

So for a “diversity is  our strength” valentines day, I made this :

Martin Solveig And Dragonette ft. Idoling – Big In Japan (Single Version)


Something a bit more upbeat for … because … I like it, dunno why, but I do …

The dog seemed to want to get photographed, even smiled for me 🙂 Could be a juxtapose or could be exactly the right photo, dunno. Suppose it’s subjective, beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder.

OMG – Madonna falls off stage at Brit awards LIVE


While we all love Madonna and what she has done over the years, it does show we can all have a bad day at the office. She certainly knows how to upstage everyone. To be fair, she did carry on and finish her song, even smiling at the end! I wouldn’t want to be the guys who pulled her off the stage though. Absolutely live, two minutes after co-presenter Laura Whitmore said ‘Who knows what will happen…It’s Live!!’ Continue reading OMG – Madonna falls off stage at Brit awards LIVE
