English Music Club Official Promotional Video!

A last-minute desperate attempt to entice students to join my music club worked last year for the spring 2015 semester:

One year later (March 2016) I hope it works again. Running this club has I think been the highlight of my time at SMU to date. It’s a wonderful opportunity to share my love of music with students.

It is very¬†aptly¬†named “Battlestar Muzactica”.¬†I created the flying text in the introduction with a fantastic and very cheap piece of software called Bluff Titler.

How to Watch the Final Episodes of Battlestar Galactica!

Here it is! My tribute to the final episodes of the final season of Battlestar Galactica and its music by Bear McCreary.

I certainly had fun putting this together, but have to admit it almost ended in disaster when my iPod flew out of hand at 3:18. That was not in the script, nor was it improvised; it was simply a frak-up:
