  1. Just looked at my profile for the first time in years and saw I only have 4 out of 5 stars :(

      What a weird system to implement here, and what kind of petty asshole goes into someone's profile to give them a bad rating

      This doesn't really seem like the type of forum that needs or should have user ratings (especially given how civil this place generally is compared to say... reddit) but eh, whatever, I guess.

      I happen to be enjoying my rating quite a bit.

  2. who was it that was going to write an article about self publishing and when can I expect to read it?

      It was me. I'll get to it one of these days.

      Once I find a publisher for the article, I'll send you a link.

  3. I know this video is about advertising, but how is this any different than our industry?

      I saw this earlier this week and thought the same thing in how it compares to this industry. It's not exactly the same but there are similarities. Like creating a story all on your own then having to sell all it's rights if you want to get a movie made.

      yeah, personally i wouldn't do that, jibs. now if i'm a whiz and i can bang it out in four days, it wouldn't phase me though.

  4. Thanks to netflix, I just watched Rambo for the first time. Pretty fun film, can't believe I've never seen it.

      Which ever the first film is ... probably first blood.

      First Blood is terrific. The rest get sillier and sillier.

  5. My wife and I started a podcast about the Criterion Collection. There's a post in the Works In Progress section if you're interested.

  6. My sister got the job on Twin Peaks! It's a dream job for her, since we've been huge David Lynch fans since we were young.

  7. My sister just got a call back from Twin Peaks to work as 2nd set custumer. Fingers crossed she gets the gig. She finds out next week.

      Twin Peaks is coming back? Oh my god...that would be so exciting...

  8. Maybe I'm the only one, but my dad wanted to see Jurassic World, and holy shit what a horrible hodge lodge of cliche and stereotype. I guess story takes a far back seat to CGI. Even the comedic moments of levity fell flat. In short I thought it sucked big time, and I guess I just don't understand the appeal.

      It's supposed to say hodge podge but autocorrect was being a moron.

      I'm with you. I grew up on the original and this one was just so...disjointed! There were literally 3 different stories going on at any one time and none of them really wrapped up well. And as for the "love story?" I felt Chris was more connected with his raptor "Blue " than the girl. Ugh.

       

  9. Snuck in my pilot just before the launch pad deadline.

      Chatted with TB guys this morning. Guess the site crashed Sunday and today on and off and a bunch of people couldn't enter, so once they got the site back up, they kept pilots there and features.

  10. New laptop, new lease on life. Waited way too long for an upgrade.

      i switched to mac, too, because i couldn't respect a windows MACHINE! i would max out the cpu and burn up the hard drive mixing up. and no background virus programs, don't go too far from thinking you need something you don't need windows ppl!

    3. StringerBell

      StringerBell

      I'm one of the lucky ones. Never had a virus and very rarely have had a problem with a Windows machine in all of my years using them. Any issue I've ever had I've been able to solve by googling the problem and running a fix. Windows is intuitive to me and I simply could not understand the Mac OS. Old dog, new tricks, I guess. I did like the form factor of the Macbook Pro, but it was pretty heavy. Lots of good lightweight Windows options out now and more on their way shortly.

      I loved it.

       

      The plot isn't supposed to make sense. You try following the leads for about fifteen minutes then just give up and go with it. It places you right in JP's head.

       

      I died laughing when he wrote the helpful clue "something Spanish" in his pad.

      Opine, no amount of butter and sugar can make a potato tortilla taste good. I grabbed Chinese food after their crap feast to make up for it.

  13. Just watched The Sixth Sense for the first time today while home with the flu.

      I always thought they should make a spoof movie called TWIST ENDING. Where like SCARY MOVIE, it incorporates other movies' plots and makes fun of them. They could have the "he's a ghost" from SIXTH SENSE, "he's imaginary" from FIGHT CLUB, "he's a she" from THE CRYING GAME, etc. And the ending is the whole movie is a dream or something.

    3. mebishop2001

      mebishop2001

      That's "she's a he" from CRYING GAME.

      Sounds like something Kim Jong Dick would like. Better put the Wayans Brothers on it.

      the level of weird and unrestrained brilliance here is amazing. I feel like this is a rabbit hole I totally want to fall in and never get back out of. Same way I feel about David Lynch, only I would WANT to get out of his rabbit hole..because I'd be afraid I'd take a wrong step, trip and fall down stairs and be trapped there forever by Killer Bob and -- I miss Twin Peaks. That's all. I miss Twin Peaks :)
