What are everyone’s thoughts on crowdfunding? The movie based on the TV show Veronica Mars has reached it’s goal of 2 million dollars in 8 hours. I donated, but that’s beside the point.
The masturbating bear makes a triumphant return! For real! Anyone watching?
Anyone who enjoys television should really think about the combination of these two things. In one hand, you have a teeny tiny little box that sits next to your television that streams content from any iTunes-running computer in your house and plays it on your TV. In the other, you’ve got a bittorrent application with built-in transcoding for any device type you want. Which means, essentially, you don’t have to worry about all that video codec/importing bullshit.
Essentially, you google a torrent for a season or episode of a show you like, you download the torrent file and open it in Vuze and when it’s done, you just drag the finished torrent over to the little iTunes icon in Vuze’s sidepanel. It’ll ask if you want to transcode for an iPad, an iPhone, a bunch of other gadgets, or an Apple TV. And then you go have a sandwich. Later, when you sit down on your couch and pick up the teeny, tiny three button perfection that is the Apple TV remote and browse over to TV Shows… there’s the stuff you just downloaded.
At last, Gos and I will finally finish watching Dead Wood, and start watching Mad Men, The Wire, Twin Peaks, and countless other shows we’ve missed. We’ve got a comfy couch and many blankets. These are good times to have bad sinus infections.
I just searched the site for comments about the funniest character on tv and found nothing. If you haven’t seen ben schwartz’s character on parks and recreation search youtube for him. He is the funniest!
Engadget is releasing info on Apple’s possible new Apple TV unit and, for the first time, I’m pretty pumped about the little unit.
Read more for my take on it.
I loved the finale and I had some initial things on my mind to type up.
Anybody see that stained-glass window in the “church”?
What DID they die for?
Provided answer: The trials that have left a cascading series of corpses on the Island catalyzed the candidates into a force to be reckoned with. Only after properly seasoning these lonely souls were they prepared to defend the Light from the Man in Black.
Actual answer: With 714 commercial act breaks needing searingly dramatic cliffhangers over the past six years, you gotta ice some mofos.
Even if nothing else is worked out in a satisfying manner, I’ll always love this show for opening Ben Linus’ mind to the intellectually dizzying truth of an infinitely vast, bifurcated universe by having him get punched repeatedly in the face for the nine thousandth time.
When the episode ended, my first thought was “oh, that was sort of a nice little three-man stage play.” And then I remember that it was supposed to be a LOST episode. Not just any LOST episode, either. This was to be the episode that explains the island! And what did we get? “Oh, yeah, um, well God lives in a cave there. Sort of. And some lady was protecting it and then some kids were born and the lady killed their mom for some reason. Later, the one brother decided he wanted to leave, so he started looking for
a boat or watercraft of some sort the God Cave. But then the lady knocked him out and his brother fed him to the God Cave and then a smoke monster came out. TA DA!”
Seriously, Lost? What the fuck? Are you going to readdress any of this nonsense or is this all we’re getting?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
