Pink Floyd: Pulse on DVD

Finally on DVD and ready for preorder on Amazon, the video of Pink Floyd’s final concert tour, “Pulse”. I wrote about this before, but at that time it was not available to pre-order at most sites. Due for release on December 6th, this is certainly a must-have for the Floyd fan on your Christmas list.

Here’s the rumored track list and extras. This was a fantastic concert and my VHS is long overdue for replacement. The DVD extras and Dolby Digital soundtrack are just icing on the cake.

Echoes from the Past: Pulse on DVD

PULSEPink Floyd “Pulse” tour soon to be available on DVD!

Arguably the greatest live rock performance ever (though you won’t get any argument from me), Pink Floyd’s final tour has been available on VHS since 1995. According to a Reuters.com article it will be available on DVD this December.

Scheduled for North American release on December 6, I’m afraid I won’t be waiting until Christmas for this one.

This is not yet listed on Amazon for pre-order, but I’ll keep an eye on it and post an update here when it is available.

MAKE Volume 2: More Good Stuff

Make: Vol 2In the gaps between teaching, work, bloging and working on some pet-projects I have finally finished MAKE: Technology On Your Time, Volume 2. Chock full of home entertainment projects, I am yet again impressed with the quality and quantity.

Highlights include HDTV on Your Mac, Atari 2600PC, and instructions on how to build a twitchy little robot out of a computer mouse. I’m glad the magazine only comes out quarterly… I could spend three months working on the projects from just one issue!

While the quality of the projects outlined in MAKE is undeniable, I am finding the true value of the magazine is how it has changed the way I look at things. I can only equate this to when I learned how to pick locks. Once you have picked a Masterlock and a few door locks your attitude toward locked doors changes. What was once a barrier is now a challenge, even one to look forward to.

MAKE has changed the way I view the world. A broken answering machine, old mouse, dead entertainment system, even a cheap Commadore64 direct-to-TV game have taken on a new value. I’ve always been a hacker, never afraid to take the screws out and rewire, but this is going to a whole new level!

More than a book full of projects, MAKE is full of new ways to apply technology, new tools, and true “maker” attitude. The value of MAKE, and it’s true spirit, is realized when you view it not as a bunch of projects and reviews, but as 200 pages of raw information just waiting to see how the reader will put it all together.

Will I build a Lego robot controlled by an audio chip? Podcast a lecture for a class I will be teaching? Perhaps build a desktop linear accelerator to annoy and harm my cube-mates! (just kidding)

Well, one thing is for sure… I’m glad my girlfriend got me a subscription for my birthday. Time to dig into Volume 3. I’m afraid I’ve only got a couple months until Volume 4 will arrive.

For more information on what started this new obsession of mine, check out this article about MAKE, and this retrospective on Volume 1.
