NIN and a brief hiatus

Yes, another iconic band hit Victoria last night - an excellent birthday present, I have to say again - and rocked the roof off the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

The lights were amazing! They had cameras set up around the stage and the arena, projecting images onto what looked like giant mesh grids of tiny LED lights. Like LED curtains!

Trent Reznor sang right into the camera and it was translated to a night-vision and red-toned images on the massive LED grid.

The curtains had all kinds of graphics and backgrounds on the rest of the time. I'm wondering who's job it is to design for this kind of stuff, 'cause I'd like to know how you get going on that. But Jeff tells me it's likely they do everything themselves owing to how hands-on he says Reznor is.

Now on to the "hiatus" part of this post. I probably won't get to blog again until the end of January. Just scheduling and workload stuff, but I thought I'd mention it since I usually post more often than once every couple of months.

So TTFN and I'll see you again in 2009.
