    HDTGM Classics Resurrection!

    Ok. So good news and bad news: Bad news is that I have a Mac and apparently streaming Mac audio is tricky. I can't figure out how to make it happen at the moment but I'm working on it. The good news is that anyone with a PC may have better luck streaming for the group, so Kast may still be a viable option.

    Having audio issues, guys. Hold on and I'll try again in a bit.

    I have not. I was able to get an account and activate with no problems. I don't know anything about the password thing.

    Testing https://s.kast.gg/g/u13fqxabka If anyone wants to "stop by" I'll be seeing how this works for a little while this evening. NBD. Stop by and say...
  5. Hey guys, I just wanted you to know that I have played around a little with the application that has replaced rabbit, Kast. It works a little different since you choose to broadcast your screen or a browser on your computer, but it's the same in a lot of ways. I started a private group: https://s.kast.gg/g/6282ikcqdb Perhaps everyone who is interested give it a try... perhaps we can resume classic nights?

    Episode 224.5 - Minisode 224.5

    The calls that are extremely similar to posts have bothered me for awhile. I don't really believe it's malicious, but it does kind of feel like if you have a really excellent point and a caller makes the same point, the caller is going to get preference on the minisode all in an effort to make the episode more dynamic... and that kinda sucks.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    And not only that, but I assumed that when someone signed "A Friend" that they were just being cheeky, but no... it turns out it's actually been sent from "Arthur Friend's" email. As if to say you could only sign an email with the name that matches your email address? But yeah I figure the kid's mom was telling him what to write, especially since she says something in the beginning about being really close to him or talking to him a lot or something? It's a weird reveal that makes very little sense. And why do his kids sign their cutesy email at the very end as "A Famiily"? Do they know about "A Friend"?

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    Let's talk Corridor y'all: During the climax of the movie, Tom cannot access sensitive business files because his security status has been knocked down to an entry level employee. Since he can't get in on his computer, he goes to where the demo for the Corridor is set up in the Conley's hotel suite. Why in the world would Arcamax allow the guys, who are potentially trying to merge with their company, have such high access? Or why do they keep their actual private business fiiles in the Corridor at all? That seems like it would not be terribly prudent during a negotiation period. Regardless, Tom accesses the pertinent files while Meredith at the same time has decided to log on in her office and delete incriminating files. Why now? Why not right after these video recordings were made... you know... the videos of private phone calls where two parties are openly talking about sabotaging a colleague. That's like white collar prison type shit. All of this leads to the true Ridiculous of this movie: When Meredith shows up as an extra from Dire Strait's Money For Nothing video. She is represented as a physical body in the Corridor itself, stalking Tom like Michael Meyers. There's even a jump scare noise. WTF and Whhhhhyyyyy? What if... Donald Sutherland (or ANYONE) just so happened to be hanging out in the Corridor in this moment ... wouldn't they see her deleting shit? That ain't workin... that's the way you do it... get your money for nothing, and your chicks for free...

    Episode 222.5 - Minisode 222.5

    It's Nikon D90 with a 20-200 lens. I have a cool portrait lens, too, but I'm not much of an equipment junkie. I work for a theatre and I help them do a lot of different photo projects, mainly their marketing photography. It's an odd little part of my job and I wish I did more than I do. Photography is my jam though and have been doing it since I was a kid. This is one of the photos I took that day.

    That's a great point. I have heard of people doing this. They ask for huge amounts in gift cards to elderly people on the phone or internet. It's pretty awful. I bet someone did this and then ditched one of the cards where the caller found it.

    Episode 222.5 - Minisode 222.5

    Funny story. I wrote that post 13 feet in the air. I was doing a photoshoot that needed a birds-eye-view and so I had to climb this rickety scaffolding and once I was up there I was NOT coming down until the shoot was over. So while I had time to kill I wrote the Aluoette post. I guess it's not that funny and barely a story... but you guys get the jist.

    Thank you guys! Yep... 2nd in a row! I feel so lucky from my winnings of nothing. And naysayers (my parents) laughed at me for taking French... well who's laughing now!?

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    What I love about these 2 quotes is that it shows how incompetent the cops are in both directions of the investigation. We really should talk about the interrogation scenes. I'm not going to rent it again, but there is line where the cops are like "You expect us to believe... [explains precisely what happens]" and I'm screaming "YES!" ALSO- the cop says "Sorry, I had to show him the file" when Julia asks where her fiance went... Is that standard detective work!?

    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    That's another great moral to take away from this story: Never - EVER - answer calls from blocked, unknown, or phone numbers you don't know. * If it is someone who legitimately is trying to talk to you they will leave a message. (*Of course with the exceptions of the times when you know you will be imminently receiving a phone call from a number you won't know or answering your phone is a big part of your job.) That being said, Julia's technology behavior reminds me a lot of my parent's.
