Re: Uncut Gems

This movie was crazy intense. I was uncomfortable the whole time. The severity of my reaction is what makes me think this movie is so well done. It was on a ton of top movie lists of 2019, so I was pretty surprised when it didn't win a bunch of awards. Not that I pay much attention to it.

Re: Fun-A-Day 2020 and Jamuary

I finished my second track for Weekly Beats. It sounded video gamey to my wife. I ran out of time a bit, but it still has some good parts: https://weeklybeats.com/ken/music/stomper-romper

Re: Star Wars IX: Rise of Skywalker

Right. I forgot to mention how it seemed like they tried to tie as many loose ends up with a tight little bow at the end. Wookies get medals! Other stuff I can't remember right now... Separately, I thought it was funny that stormtroopers got jet packs. As if someone in the writer's room was all, "Do...

Re: Backup Planning - what's your scheme?

I tend to just lose everything when I get a new computer. Not the greatest plan, but I haven't had too many issues with it yet. I do have a pile of CDRs, hard drives and old computers lying around as well as VCR tapes, cassettes and DATs. I only recently had a couple of DATS and cassettes converted ...

Re: Star Wars IX: Rise of Skywalker

Okay. Maybe I'm nitpicking your points a bit because overall, I like the final 3. You don't have to be a Jedi to use a lightsaber. Look at Han on Hoth using Luke's to slice open a Tautaun. It is just the "chosen" weapon of the Jedi as opposed to a blaster. Jedi's can use other weapons as well. I als...

Re: SoundCloud limiting free accounts to _15 tracks_!!

Okay so: Funkwhale looks great. It's self-hostable, federated/decentralized, and has an embed widget. Seems like it'd be easy enough for some of us to pool our resources and run an instance for the Song Fight! community. Plus you can use it for getting your own music library everywhere, which might...

Re: His Dark Materials

I watched some of the first episode but didn't get hooked. I read the books a while ago and vaguely remember I would start it out thinking, "meh" and then read the whole thing and get the next one. I may be having the same reaction to this adaptation.

If my memory is correct, that car crash was at a different space called the Werepad. I think Ken Flagg hooked us up with them.
