I couldn't get that to work

What code are you inserting? Link or embed? It's usually one or the other and never consistent from site to site.

They have two different code lines. One is just the HTML, which does nothing accept a link. The other is using the 'object' code. At the other site, just placing that lengthy code in the text area here converted it to work to display the video. I don't understand all that.

Just looking for some way to display video, that is not youtube-centric

I tired the link to see if it works. It doesn't. I don't see the object code you speak of, so I have no way of trying that out here to see what it does.

Q&A - Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon)



Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon on AMC's The Walking Dead, talks about Daryl's zombie ear necklace and why it's impossible to not look cool with a crossbow.

Quote
Q: "Chupacabra" is a pretty intense episode.

A: It's like Deliverance meets Motorhead.

Q: In this episode, Daryl has a necklace of ears. Were you pleased with the necklace?

A: It's a necklace of ears, man! Cutting off the ears is just Daryl getting angry and doing what he has to do to save himself. I love that he's still like that.

Q: Last year you told us your challenge was to make a racist likeable. Now your character is a fan favorite. Have you enjoyed the switch?

A: I've tried to make him more of a multi-layered character -- someone who can tear up and then try to knife you. He's kind of like this wet little coyote that doesn't know where he's at and people are trying to reach over and pet him and he snaps back.

Q: Last year you told us you had never used a crossbow before. You must be pretty comfortable with the thing by now?

A: [Laughs] I'm pretty well-versed in crossbow-ness by now, but I'm still figuring out new ways to use it all the time. These days I can flip it around my back or use it to prop a shotgun up. I've gotten good at running and shooting it, too. My latest accomplishment is that I can jump on a horse and hook the reins onto the horn of the saddle and flip it over my back and load and fire it while riding. You can't not look cool with a crossbow.

Q: The zombie actors must cringe when they have a scene with you.

A: You have to dry fire on set -- and it's with another wimpy crossbow, with the tension let out. If it's a close range zombie kill, like that episode where I roll over on my back and shoot a zombie who's on top of me, it's with that Nerf-like crossbow.

Q: Daryl is a survivalist and outdoors type of guy. Are you like that?

A: [Laughs] I've been camping and stuff, but if you left me in the woods I'd probably just curl up and cry until someone found me. I have to say living in Georgia while shooting The Walking Dead -- I love the country. I've been riding my motorcycle in my time off, not seeing anyone for hours. I love it here.

Q: Have you stumbled upon any hidden secrets in your travels around Georgia?

A: I also have an old truck -- a 1979 Ford F150 that has big wheels on it -- and what I've found out is that if you ride in the country in a truck, the other truck drivers wave to you. I love the politeness down here.

Q: Did you give Laurie Holden a hard time because her character shoots Daryl?

A: Yeah we had a big laugh about that. I was like "Laurie, I can't believe you did that!" She was like, "I was really sad, I swear!" She's become a good friend of mine. We've all become really tight on the show.

Or you could just take a magic marker and write on the front of your shirt: "My name is Shane and I'm a d*ck"

Secrets



Dale just painted a huge Red X on his chest by confronting Shane and calling him out on the fact that he tried to kill Rick. This is only going to make Shane want to silence Dale...at any cost, to keep this a...secret. A gnarly Zombie kill at the drug store where Maggie and Glenn are attacked. The dangling head Zombie was a surprise. I wasn't expecting it to bounce back up at all. So Rick now knows that Lori is pregnant and about her and Shane. He now has a big fat Red X on his chest. Andrea annoys me.

I thought the whole zombie attack on Shane and Andrea, with Andrea ‘quickly’ gaining confidence was rather well done. Sex with Shane was rather unexpected. I guess badasses attract each other?

The show is taking a huge leap of faith with the miracle healing of Carl. I was a little confused to realize, yes that is Carl, back up on his feet like nothing happened. Say what? How long have they been on the farm?

Well that’s nothing compared to all the secrets being revealed with very little emotion or conflict. It appears to be a steam kettle under pressure slowly being released. I figured when those secrets got revealed we would see a hell of lot more reactions going on. I thought it was all very uncharacteristic of the people involved. Dale talking to Hershel… quietly. Hershel just going uh-huh. Dale talking to Shane had some tension, but I was expecting a lot more. Dale talking to Lori… quietly. Rick is only blowing up at Lori for keeping the pregnancy secret. He reacted less with Shane info. Maybe he knew and just confirmed in his head.

Did you notice when Glenn is talking to Maggie about ‘Walker’s, she gets all defensive about the term ‘walker’, but after the attack, she says we need to kill those walkers.

Nonetheless that was the fastest hour ever. Solid storytelling. I want it to keep going.
Nerd alert - Questions: Just how long was Rick in the hospital, which leads to how fast did Lori latch onto Shane and just how fast did the zombie outbreak occur. The zombie outbreak appears to be almost instant with the condition of the clogged highway.

I read the comic book, but it was never addressed. The only clue is that he grew a full beard, which can range from 4 to 6 weeks. But this is under the assumption that there was no shaving by a nurse from the time he entered the hospital to the time he woke up.

Originally when I saw Carl outside with Lori to open the episode, I just naturally assumed that this was a flashback sequence because he was bed ridden from a gun shot wound. It wasn't. It's a TV show and they really can't dwell too long on him being bed ridden. They have to keep the story moving forward, even if it goes against what would happen in reality.

Q&A - Laurie Holden (Andrea)


Laurie Holden, who plays Andrea on AMC's The Walking Dead, describes her own shooting skills and attaining a Zen-like calm.

Quote
Q: Now that it's approaching winter, do you miss the summer heat on set?

A: The thing that's great about our new location is that there are more trees and more of a breeze in the summer. It was not as hot and unbearable as it was last year. So we were dying when we shot it but that's the intent.

Q: Andrea looks pretty comfortable with a gun. Have you acted with guns before?

A: On The Shield, I played an agent so I used guns a little bit, but I've never... had the training I've had for The Walking Dead. I got hooked up with a shooting expert and we were going into the backwoods of Georgia on weekends for like two hours at a time. He would put bulls-eyes throughout the woods. They were tiny. When I saw that, I was like, "Come on!" He told me just to try it -- and I started nailing all of them! He said he'd never seen anything like it. I guess I have a knack for shooting I didn't realize I had.

Q: Kind of surprising for someone studying human rights at Columbia.

A; None of it makes sense! It's very bizarre.

Q: Last season Andrea was an emotional wreck. Have you enjoyed the shift in her character this season?

A: I really love what they've done with my character. Last year was awful! All I did as Andrea was cry the whole summer. She was such a sobbing, bereft, suicidal person and now she's a warrior. I am a tomboy and I love being with the boys and shooting guns and stuff. There was more acting required to be, like, scared of zombies -- it's more natural for me on the show now.

Q: Andrea and Shane get ambushed on a cul-de-sac in Episode 6 this season. Was it fun to get out into the suburbs?

A: I love the dynamics of the scene -- we go from being upset about not finding Sophia to the zombies coming. Andrea freaks out and the gun misfires and then she really finds her own strength.

Q: Did you have to practice your killer stare?

A: It's a Zen-like calm that I work on, a state where you don't think. Athletes, or golfers for example, they get in this state. It's organic and it's instantaneous -- there's no nerves or pressure or over-thinking. That's Andrea with a gun. And that's me when I'm swimming.

Q: Interesting comparison. Athletes prep in the off-season. Do actors?

A: Yeah! I had a trainer and I swam a bunch and I did some Pilates. This season, I decided on my apartment just because of the pool. That's how married I am to water. I love being physical. It's my favorite thing to see how far I can push things -- I feel like I'm stronger now than I was as a teenager -- I was doing the butterfly the other day and I never could do it before. I like to push and see how far I can go.

Q: As someone who's interested in human rights, do you believe in the rights of zombies?

A: I do. The episode this season where Andrea is with Daryl and they see the hanging zombie for example. That was a man who got bit who did not want to turn into a monster, so he hung himself. He had the right to take his own life. This is a guy that didn't want to hurt other people. So yes, certain zombies have rights.

Pretty Much Dead Already



That was a powder keg of an episode if I ever saw one. The entire episode was one long slow burn....and then Shane unleashes hell into the Walker that Herschel and company had just caught. Not only that, but Shane takes it upon himself to bust open the barn door to free all the Walkers inside. That just leads to a massive shooting range with everyone packing pistols and unloading every round and every clip into the Walkers. After the bloodletting stops, and my guess so that Shane can "enjoy his handy work", they give us one last major turning point...
