CES: Day 2 Photos from the floor

nbc

NBC was broadcasting from the floor of CES and we watched for a few minutes. The producer (or whoever she was) was busy behind the glass in the mobile control room.

sony
This TV display from Sony was for a brand new technology call OLED. The cost is still high $2500 at least for 11″ but it’s just now evolving. The O stands for organic. It’s a carbon based product and when power is added to it it emits light. No more backlight required. BLACKS ARE BLACK so contrast/resolution is stunning. What was on display was all prototypes but between the look of it and the energy efficiency it’s exciting new technology I think.

cannon

Cannon was showing off the new consumer HD cameras with an elaborate showcase complete with dancers and MC. These kids were called the fanny packers and they were great. The cameras were too. True HD, small, no more tapes, image stabilizing, flash cards that go right into the laptop to make your movie masterpiece….
interview

Lots of other bloggers, podcasters & media everywhere interviewing. We were in the North Hall most of the day and the crowds are much bigger than yesterday. One other cool TV related thing I saw were fancy frames around TVs from Hitachi. I think they called them Chameleon skins and they were in all colors and different textures. My must have TV is 1/3″ thick and 60″ HD plasma…it’s not out yet but I’m waiting…someday. I saw a prototype in the Panasonic booth and also I think a home 3D system to go with it would be fine too…

Now if I could just hit that Jackpot in the Casino…

Nashville’s Transgender Day of Remembrance

Last night I stopped by Outcentral to talk with some folks attending the Transgender Day of Remembrance. Here’s a short film in their own words about what they would like all of us to know.

Rock to Win Part2: Melissa Ethridge

This the second in a series of videos I shot at the Filmore Auditorium for the HRC Rock to Win concert. This was the premier event for the GLBT community during the Democratic Convention in Denver and it was a fundraising event for HRC. Producer of the show Elizabeth Birch told me in an interview for Avalon Farmcast that it was a sold out show. (2000+)

IT’S ALL DRAG TO ME

Here’s the latest episode of AVALON FARMCAST…enjoy!
kimmie satin

Show Notes: On this show I sat down with Kimmie Satin before a Nashville Drag Show. A former Miss Tennessee and with 25 years on the Drag Show circuit, Kimmie shares tips, political thoughts and stories from the stage. We covered topics from family and community to Gay Pride and Stonewall.

Also, Tennessee Equality Project held a reception at The Tribe the night before Equality Day on the Hill. Emily and I attended both events and I spoke with several folks there.

Music on the show is a brand new song from Jill Sissell with The Paint Sisters!

Peace and Love,
Val

Show #49 Food, Food, Food!

Show Notes: Our grandparents knew how to grow food for themselves. They had to during World War II. Our current president in time of “war” told us to “go shopping.”
Could you feed yourself and your family if you had to? Relying on huge corporations to be our sole provider of food is risky these days. Worries about cloned beef, growth hormones, antibiotics, genetic engineering, processed meals, terrorist threats and bare shelves in an emergency fill the news these days.

Do you really know what’s on your table? There are dozens of reasons to eat & buy local. If something isn’t “in season” then you know it has been shipped in thousands of miles. One benefit of growing homegrown vegetables is taste. Factory farms can not compete with the juicy plump taste home grown organic tomatoes. Corn fed feedlot cows don’t even come close to grass feed beef. Buying local also cuts down on transportation so it helps reduce carbon in the atmosphere. Growing heirloom varieties and saving the seeds helps protect a dwindling diverse selection that we are losing to big agribusiness.

On today’s show I found a WWII government movie of how to grow a victory garden. On my blog I’ve added links to find your local organic food suppliers.

It doesn’t matter if you live in the city or the country. Your food choices make a difference. Find out what you can do to help your local farmers, your health, the environment & your own family’s food security.
