Nice bit of geekery here. I’ll try and leave Chatroulette alone now. I’m in danger of boring myself. 😉

Watch it once before reading this next bit. Then watch it again.

You will notice the initials on Camera Angel’s clapboard correspond to what she says before the scene.

This is from the DVD extras. The Camera Angel and the DoP have worked with Tarantino for years and the actors love her.

Excellent.

Chatroulette Piano Improv

Yes I know that everyone is pinging Chatroulette stuff around the moment – but this deserves the limelight. I’ll spare all the waffle but if you haven’t seen it all you need to know is:

1 – Merton creates Chatroulette Piano Improv.
2 – Ben Fold creates Ode to Merton.

Enjoy…

Suddenly Chatroulette seems a lot less scary and dark.

Brilliant stuff from both these guys.
