I was on the point of suggesting you download VLC Player which many of us use here. It's free and works beautifully !!!! Needs no extra plugins.
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
I saw it earlier today, after spotting the link on the CW forum.
It's hard to judge, because the sound quality is terrible, and the video doesn't match the audio at all times (I assume that's an issue not present in the real thing). But it was still nice to get a glimpse!
a lot of hit songs from the early sixties were often less than two minutes and certainly less than three minutes.
One reason was to leave the Radio audience wanting to hear it again and the other reason was to keep the sound level high and facilitate pressing of the vinyl singles 45rpm plastic things that fit in a jukebox.
Ah ! restaurants with Jukebox selectors at each table, what wonderful technology that was.
After watching the DVD which came with the HSJS 2 CD I realized that I haven't been to Mona Vale in a very long time. So I went today and took a heap of photos (79) of the rose garden where Hayley did her videos and the rest of the gardens. Mona Vale is in a very pretty part of Christchurch alongside the Avon River and not far from Hagley Park. So if any of you do come to Christchurch you must come to Mona Vale. There is also a tearooms/cafeteria there too. The first photos are in the Rose Garden where Hayley shot the "A Bud" video in the shelter.
Hi Ross, thank you so much for these pictures they're wonderful...i'd love to visit New Zealand- particularly Christchurch and Mona Vale one day... hopefully i'll be able to get the album soon instead of having to listen to the song over and over again on youtube...

Thanks for the photos Ross. I loved the videos too. Nice to see some wider views of where they were shot. The Bud song is nice, but the others are growing on me too. Nemunoki has a lovely haunting quality about it, and in fact it is difficult to pick a favourite at the moment. If it is anything like HSJS1, I will keep changing my mind for months.
BTW, what is a Silk Tree? I always though silk came from worms!
