Ned: You’re either living or you’re dead. When you’re living, you’re alive. When you’re dead, that’s what you are. But when you’re dead and then you’re not, you’re alive again. Can’t we say “alive again”? Didn’t that sound nice?

I discovered last night that if you run two pix_film objects into pix_diff like so:

and stop one of them while the other one is still running, GEM freaks out a little bit, causing this really rad datamoshing effect. I’m not sure why this happens, but I’m guessing that pix_diff’s calculation of the absolute value of the difference between two inputted images may be similar mathematically to what happens when you delete i-frames from Xvid videos… I could be wrong. Anyway, that GIF above is the last scene from NIN’s banned Broken video (which seems kinda quaint these days, especially after seeing À l’intérieur a few times) “reacting” to a blank still frame or something…
