God, I don't even want to THINK about the fact hat's how they're going to open SNL this week.  Don't make us live through that again.  Please do something more clever.

Oh my god.  It's been so long.  It's been SO long since we had something like this.

Two old Conan bits that have popped up recently.  The first with Mike Myers in unintentional Kim Possible cosplay:

But that doesn't hold a CANDLE to this brilliant bit featuring the late great Jerry Stiller:

And I'm really p*ssed that the Senator from MY state is the one who hit that 50% mark.  Who wrapped up his long career by saying "so what?"  Rule of law. So what?

This just randomly popped up on my Youtube, this is the EXACT satellite package my family had as a kid.  I didn't realize there were 14 channels on there... and a lot of them were garbage.  Explains why they was never anything on.  Oh, and what the h*ll with there being "Sky Movies" and "The Movie Channel?"  That's WAY too similar.  Call it Sky Pictures or Sky Cinema or SOMETHING.


Sky One was essentially FOX.  Like, literally the same programming at the same times as my local affiliate in the states, though I don't remember if they ran Married with Children after the Simpsons.  I can't remember much of the Children's Channel.  Family was... I don't remember.  Wasn't into MTV back then (or CMT) but part of me wishes I was, I was so out of the music scene back then.

It's striking how many channels are basically US channels with a handful of UK ones.  I remember a neighbour down the street having Cartoon Network but I don't know how.  And because we were in Rome, we didn't have the terrestrial channels (no BBC, no ITV or Channel 4).  We probably got Italian channels but I never knew how to access them.

I dig Snazzylabs... he buils a lot of interesting Hackintoshes, the kind I wish I could build.

In a bid to never have sex again, Linus Tech Tips and... another channel I'd not heard of... had their wives build a PC.  I thought this was entertaining on its own...


But then I saw this dismantling video of the new Mac Pro and holy cow... I cannot believe how easily that thing comes apart and back together again.  If I'm watching this right (maybe I'm not) there are almost no wires, you just plug it in, things pop out, things have protective shields...  I don't know if Apple's ever actually made a PC before but holy crap, the amount of thought that went into the little things is astounding.  It's just a shame that with it being so easy to disassemble that there's proprietary cr*p in there... I can't wait to see what happens when modders start playing around with it, how much it can be modified and souped up with the non-expensive stuff.

Short Films / Acid Rain
« on: December 14, 2019, 05:48:44 pm »

From the website:

ACID RAIN is set in post-industrial Eastern Europe and follows a young woman who runs away from her depressing hometown. That’s how she meets Skinny – a kind of unstable weirdo who lives in a camper and runs his not-so-legal errands. Their journey gradually leads them towards more and more eerie settings, revealing the attraction and repulsion of rave culture.

written, directed and designed by Tomek Popakul



Funky, weird... very interesting and really cool to see on the big screen.  This is another one I caught on the Festival circuit and I felt like I was transported both back in time and into an alternate dimension.

Short Films / The Neighbor's Window

This is a movie I caught on the indie film circuit and quite enjoyed, a 20 minute slice of life drama following a husband and wife in NYC and their "relationship" with the neighbors they can see from the living room window.

Love this, short but brilliant.  And obviously I love the hedgehogs.
