2008 - Roth Memorial - Friday

I just got done making the video for this entry, so take a look if you've got a high speed Internet connection.

Today was the 2nd day of the Ed Roth Memorial Reunion held in Manti, UT.

There were finksters-a-plenty there on Friday, but even more on Saturday.  I lost count of how many Rat Finks I saw.

So, because the days were packed, I didn't get a chance at all until now to compose a sufficient entry, but now the video is done, and I hope you like it.

To sum it all up, the main attractions of Friday were the car stripers which came from all across the country, the great food, Plan B's music (hehe), and the great looking cars.

We played pretty much all day today, and if I had to sum up our performance(s), I'd have to give them a C+.  The jam sessions (in my opinion) were A+, but we were so laid back, a lot of the attendees were confused at the music we played.

We have two sets of music, 1 hour each, and we played probably 3-4 hours of music.  Jam sessions with set songs sprinkled within.

Saturday's session was ..... way better.  We only got a couple of our songs recorded, thanks to horrible rainy weather by a professional cameraman, and I'll get the footage for it in a couple of days or weeks, but I'll get to that later.

Anywho, Friday was a great day, and is summed up much better in the video.

Oh, before I go, I've gotta say that for the past couple of days, I've been tinkering with the Linux-based video editing system, kdenlive, and although being far from noobie-friendly, I can say with pride that the whole video attached to this entry was created in gentoo Linux using kdenlive and the videos from a cheap Coolpix S210 "point-and-shoot" camera.  Professional quality?  Nope, but the a/v is in sync, and for a computer nerd, it was fairly easy to figure out.

I'll have to post a how-to on it later, because there's a slew of "gotcha"'s to get it to work right.
