Operation Ivy – Healthy Body Sick Mind
Yeah, I used to like ska. I was once in a band (years and years and years ago) that did an Op Ivy cover. I’m not too proud to admit it. The only ska bands that I really liked were Operation Ivy and, for some reason, Voodoo Glow Skulls. Listening to them again, Operation Ivy aged much better than Voodoo Glow Skulls, that’s for sure.
On a technical note, I usually use Handbrake to rip DVD chapters and use Videora to convert it to mp4, but when I come across a DVD that doesn’t break each song up into individual chapters, it’s a huge pain in the ass. I was using VirtualDubMod to extract rip the clip from the DVD, editing it in Premiere, then exporting it as a DV file, but Videora iPod Converter doesn’t like the color space apparently, so it only converts it to an audio file. Up until this point, if I ran into that problem I just used Quicktime to convert it to mp4, but after watching that Ministry clip I posted earlier this week, I got fed up with the poor compression. I’ve now switched to using SUPER © which did an awesome job with this clip and I would highly recommend it if you have problems with Videora.
