A single mix of Psychedelic Dancing as exercise to the Who’s City in the Sky from the 1967 Sellout album.  The mix was made with the Zen Mix vlogging tool at http://www.zenmix.com.  The background was made in the upcoming Dan Zen tool called Zen Pan and features blurred photos of Opartica the online op art tool at http://www.opartica.com.   Add things up and this production took about an hour to do – and I got some great exercise!

Greetings,

We’ve created a series of Zen Mixes for Baron Digbody’s Castle – the creepy castle caper written by the Moustache and previously featured as an interactive online mystery at http://www.moustachemysteries.com.

We will post a couple characters each week leading up to Halloween. You can also get the booklet along with links to all the mixes below and host your own mystery party. We have done so several times with this mystery and it is a blast! Full instructions for the mystery party are given as well. The mystery can be played with 8-12 characters. The links to the mixes are special private links so you can e-mail a link to a guest and they will only know how to access theirs.

The Final Week’s Characters:

Previous Characters:

Have some fun… host a mystery party… these cost over $20 in the store and you are stuck with the environmentally taxing packaging. Plus, no other mystery is quite as zany as a Moustache Mystery!

This is the fourth installment of the META nano anti-gravity sci-fi mystery vlog. The original post is below. Click here for the full mash. Here is the current META verse and once again, it would be cool to see someone else create a Zen Mix for the poem! Please do and post a link in the comments.

It will come to be that Professor Y determines the material of the sphere to be macro-crystaline with ten circular segmented patterns. Professor Y proposes that by mapping the patterns he can formulate a frequency to crack the sphere.

META is a sci-fi story based in the times of the Dan Zen game, Save Earth.

A premise has been written in the form of a prophetic poem. The verses will be put into a Zen Mix and will be posted here over the next while.

We would like to encourage this type of story telling using Zen Mix. And indeed, if anyone would like to make a mix of any of the META episodes, please feel free to post the link to the mix in the comments of the episode post. It is so easy to do that we started our first one with an eight-year old daughter! Click above…

Show us that you are destined to be a star!

  1. Record yourself with a digital camera saying the poem below
  2. Upload this video to vimeo.com
  3. Take a picture for the background and post it on flickr.com
  4. Go to zenmix.com to mix the two and then post the link here

You can use our background – just look beneath any mix to find out what video or background url was used and copy it into your own mix – remember copyright though. You are free to use our backgrounds for META. In this case we used an upcoming motion graphics tool called Zen Pan to make a background.

Here is the META verse 02…

It will come to be quite the task for the world government whose eyes turn to Professor Y for aid. Mad Inventor, Professor Y, will have just made the owners of velcro rich by designing velcro self cleansing environmental filters.

Here is the META verse 01…

It will come to be that on the eve of forming a world government a sphere of undetermined material surrounds earth letting sustenance in but not much out. It is assumed that the sphere is alien in construction – none claims responsibility.

Here is the META verse 00…

It will come to be that a new organization called the Free Nations will play watchdog to the United Nations and in 2020 after years of policy battle, the two will combine to form the World Government.

Even if you do not create a mix for META, you are welcome to leave your comments! In the future, we will tell further mysteries from Moustache Mysteries.

All the best,

Dan Zen

Here is a mash of two mixes – psychedelic dancing as exercise to Gomper by the Rolling Stones.   Here we look at the fingers and how we can use them to represent energy through waves and photonic motion. 

Psychedelic dancing helps with carple tunnel syndrom for those of you who sit at a computer a lot.  It also gives a good cardio workout even just sitting in your chair.  Try it instead of traditional stretching and amuse your co-workers at the same time!

Both these mixes make use of the fact that Zen Mix can use a previously made Zen Mix in place of a picture.  http://www.zenmix.com!  The background picture is from a series on Bokeh under the set called energy posted on my Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/danzen.  The pictures are of leaves out of focus.
