For some reason it really seemed like this year’s CES has a lot more overlapping events than I remember from previous years, and my evening calendar often appeared more full than the day! Now Microsoft has a pretty decent track record for throwing CES parties, so I knew it was a must-visit (even though HP’s party was also at Pure the previous night, and even though the Best Buy party in 2006 featured the Pussycat Dolls).
At the beginning (well, I guess middle, but we didn’t get there right away) the Pussycat Dolls were on stage doing a whole dance routine. Now I wasn’t previously aware of this, but there are actually two different groups called the Pussycat Dolls – one is the group out of LA, the other are the dancers in Vegas. We had the Vegas crew, and while they weren’t the same ladies from the videos, they certainly weren’t a disappointment. And since I am a giving person, I recorded some video of the event (scroll down if you are losing patience with my prose). The funny moment for me was when a bouncer came up to me, asked if I was videoing, and I said “no, just taking pictures.” It was even funnier because there were at least two dozen phones and cameras all within sight, all recording as well!
I’ve said before that I’m a big fan of Muvee’s AutoProducer software, so as I was thinking about the best way to share the videos I took. I decided to make FIVE (5) different videos and upload them all. The cool part is – I only spent about 10 minutes generating all five videos, thanks to Muvee’s excellent software. And half of the time was just me picking out which themes to try! Now, on to the Muvees…
I’ve got a full Muvee review coming soon (and an interview at CES), but make sure you try watching at least a couple of different ones to see the power of the software. Again, I spent less than 10 minutes to create all 5 videos. Not too shabby.
Back to the topic at hand – the party. The DJ was DJ-AM, which wowed Dave, while had me say “him?” All I can say about his spinning was: best music ever. I’ve never seen a room react so positively to a DJ for so long (hours and hours) before. I don’t do as much clubbing as in my younger days (when I did almost no clubbing whatsoever), but this was a seriously impressive night. Click here for more party pix.
I might be incorrect, however, when I point out the irony of the DJ using a Mac to play the music at the Vista-related party…
One cannot make a better use of Muvee’s AutoProducer software than this.
Keep that spirit up and utilise the emerging gadgets and softwares to its in tune to your wit.
there’s a Japanese version of pussycat dolls called Tokyo Cabunny
