Earth Hour Malaysia 2009 by TV Smith
I set up the video camera on a tripod at about 8pm. Then as Earth Hour approaches, carloads of people showed up suddenly. They swarmed the once tranquil look-out point. It soon became so crowded that people were squeezing too close to the tripod. Expectedly, some idiots kicked the tripod legs accidentally and ruined the entire sequence. I should kick myself for revealing this location to the world in an earlier video.

But the show must go on. Fortunately, I had the Olympus E-3 SLR clamped to the top of my vehicle and it remotely captured some great pics of the voluntary blackout of Kuala Lumpur city. These were combined
with the earlier time lapse sequence of the Petronas Twin Towers to form the final video.

Timelapse: Panasonic HDC-TM-300
Skyline: Olympus E-3

Vesti la Giubba (Put on the costume) is a famous tenor aria performed as part of the opera Pagliacci, written and composed by Ruggero Leoncavallo and first performed in 1892. Vesti la Giubba is the conclusion of the first act, when Canio discovers his wife's infidelity, but must nevertheless prepare for his performance as Pagliaccio the clown because 'the show must go on'... source: Wikipedia

Playback Help: Mycen Videos are mostly presented in high quality widescreen 16:9 standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD), both in hi-fi stereo. By default, the embedded player here loads a standard quality 360p or 480p resolution to accommodate users with slower connections. To switch to higher quality and clearer playback, select the 720p or 1080p option (if available) on the bottom right of the player after pressing play. The transition to HQ or HD may take a few seconds. If things get stuck, just reload the page and try again.

Playing HD or HQ requires a reasonably fast internet connection and reasonably competent hardware for smooth playback. Firstly, let the player's pink loading line fill completely. If the video is still jerky when you replay after that, try closing other programs on your computer to free up resources. Even then, heavy Internet traffic during peak hours might still slow down some connections. If all else fails, simply revert to normal quality playback by clicking on the same button again.

In order to watch HD smoothly, you ought to have a newer version of Adobe Flash plug-in installed on your browser. Go here to download the latest version if your browser is not doing it automatically. Enjoy!
