The Lips Concert - Video Update

This is the video portion of the update. It contains a small, low resolution 5 minute video of the adventure. It shouldn't take long to download and will rock your socks. You can only watch under three conditions: 1) You post some kind of comment 2) You understand that it was shot on a small camera designed to shoot single frames, not video and 3) The cameraman had a few beers and only ate a small breakfast the whole day. I think it captures the frenetic mood of the event along with how impossible it is to actually describe a Lips experience. I'll post the story tomorrow. Click the images below for the vid (you may have to 'Save Target As' or whatever the Mac equivalent is to download it).

I'm going to comment on the video since you asked nicely. I clicked on the link and Firefox asked me if I wanted to open it or save it. I chose to save it. It got to around 400KB and suddenly stopped. I canceled the download and retried it. This time it made it up to 550KB and stopped. I attemped to download it again and Firefox is currently sitting and spinning (the dot spinny thing in the right corner). It's been like this for about 15 minutes now and I'm getting sleepy.

Just tried IE and downloaded it in 3 seconds. I'm still uncertain as to what a Flaming Lip is.

Your lucky numbers are 6, 27, 15, 3, and 71

Experienced download problems as well, eventually got it to play. i must point out that what really makes the video is the soundtrack. i'm sure there's some profound film student speak for this. it really blends well. i am completely lost about the crash part, i didn't see any crashing. this should come as no surprise as anybody who knows me, knows i am plot challeneged (see episode i, ii, or iii).

holy crap dude, nice work. What kind of camera phone is that anyway? Does it like have a 2 gig hard drive? Thats a lot of video and pretty good quality may I add. That night totally ruled. I laughed, I cried, and I jumped... a lot!

Chad,
It's not a phone camera. It's an actual handheld camera, it just has a record feature built in. Otherwise it would be an amazing phone with an amazing camera.
