Mason video caps

Here's a few that were made by fast-fwd/reversing a videocassette, on a feed that was captured on a video recorder.  None have been edited-- didn't even touch the KPTV watermarks.

The first is where the masthead of this site comes from.  "Ruta's Dream".















"The Breakup"

"Homage to Escher"


"A Clumsy Pass"















"Segue Man"


"Stoned?  Us?"

Not even Texas remembers W

This is a photo from today's South Texas News story about the first President Bush.  His son (this guy) isn't mentioned in the story; there's no reason for his picture to be used.  It's not even captioned, like "former President's son".  We're clearly supposed to assume this is the Bush in the story.

Either they don't remember him in Texas anymore, or it means they gave up trying to tell everyone he kept us safe, and now they're hoping for simple oblivion for the man.  May it be so.

Perry Mason blooper

Watching Perry Mason yesterday, paused it and got this.


Don't know where that oddly-placed speck came from-- digital blank or analog blot (I didn't make it, or even intentionally pause the machine at the right place)-- but it seems to be the episode where Raymond Burr was accidentally shot in the back of the head by a clumsy cast member.  

The show went on hiatus for retooling-- there was some talk of "Hamilton Burger, District Attorney" coming to the airwaves-- but a little bullet through the noggin wasn't about to stop Raymond Burr, and he returned unharmed the next fall.  The summer replacement was "Agent 13, Man of Mystery", starring Dave Ketchum.


I do have some odd Mason screen caps around here somewhere...

In Defense of Anonymity: Cut-up Clothing

The Guardian has an article about how fashions are evolving to stump facial recognition software by overloading it with data-- which we audio types know as "noise", specifically, irrelevant signal.  Try a shirt made out of this stuff!




Maybe the Cubists saw something back there...



This would also confuse a cat.
