B51 Ghostbusters take Manhattan

B51 Ghostbusters

With everyone’s help, the packs were finished* just in the nick of time, and the B51 Ghostbusters** rolled out for some Halloween barhopping in Manhattan.
Our proton guns shot silly string, and the packs contained candy. Mine also had a set of speakers which played several versions of the theme song.

The night was a blast even though we missed a promised TV appearance and several costume contests. People all over cheered, sang, and danced when they saw us, and we were stopped for many pictures. A cop even lamented that he’d rather have our proton guns since he’s can’t shoot the one he has anyway.

* The packs aren’t really done yet. They look great, but need a few more pieces, some wires, and of course, more paint. Still, they served their purpose quite well. These things will be 100% done for next year. 😉

Daft Punk: Alive 2007 concert in Keyspan Park, NY

Best. Show. Ever.

Going into this, I heard a lot of hype. I heard that people who weren’t even Daft Punk fans (yet somehow went?) described it as a “religious experience”. Personally, I’d not call anything short of playing shuffleboard with Jesus a religious experience… but I certainly get where those folks were coming from.

Awesome show… certainly the best I’ve been to. (though if I could have somehow attended the Pink Floyd: The Wall tour, then this would possibly fall second)

Anyway, here are some clips that I managed to shoot in between frantic dancing and screaming. Enjoy.

PS: the video above, while reasonably good for web streaming, is half the quality of what it really should be.
(plus, this is just more fun to watch on your TV or iPod)
