The patalab season greetings

“You will obtain a vision of matter that is perhaps fatiguing for your imagination, but pure and stripped of what the requirements of life make you add to it in external perception. Wherever anything lives, there is, open somewhere, a register in which time is being inscribed...Yet,it seems that laughter needs an echo.”

Voodling away with the latest footage for the holiday season, Sam Renseiw sends his warmest season greetings to all faithful viewers and friends.

Lovely. I just watched it (and a couple of other Patalab voodles) on an iPod Touch via wifi. On the little full screen they look fabulous and a wonderfully portable way to view voodles and blog videos I think; the lightness of the technology perfectly suits the scale and opportunistic ephemerality of the blog voodle form. Only drawback is that one has to navigate to the mpeg-4 format version as the only one that will play on the iPod. Perhaps in future you could start to include a direct link to that version for portable iPod viewing :)

Anyway, greetings of the season Sam.

The ipodtouch is a marvel, I also like playing Brut Smog's hand-held video on it also! Now all we need is universal wifi and we're set.
