A continuation of my earlier quest for more versions of Sultans of Swing.
Here’s the log of a conversation I had on MSN earlier with Derek, whilst I was in the lab.
Matt: got some Live Aid DVD action here Derek: ooft, all four discs? Matt: aye Matt: got 70 quid of HMV vouchers at xmas, spent them yesterday Matt: got Live Aid, Ghostbusters, Face/Off, and an Inside Thin Lizzy CD Derek: trés spiff Matt: got a kernel extension on the powerbook here to hijack all audio being played by the OS and write it out as cd-quality AIFF files. Playing the Live Aid dvd in DVD Player so I can record that version of Sultans. Derek: a new one for the collection? Matt: indeed Matt: if this works I'll rip the AIFF at 192kbps then sync it to the iPod from iTunes right here in the lab. Matt: would be rather core Derek: about 7 on the core-o-meter Matt: what's the top rating on that meter, again? Derek: 11, naturally Matt: damn right
The banter is officially on for 2005. Here’s in anticipation of turning it right up to 11 before the year is out.
(Naturally, the process described above was purely an intellectual exercise, and the resulting copy of the audio was most definitely deleted straight away.)
