  1. Past hour
  2. Well, it's been another very hectic week, but I managed to get a few more tracks done. Where I live, the summers are very long (and hot) and I see the stores already putting out the Halloween stuff. I think everyone around here is really over summer and just wishes fall were here. So, in the spirit of fall (well, really of Halloween) I've created: "Trancyvania_v001" (looping) "Trancyvania_v002" (looping) "Trancyvania_v003" (looping) "Trancyvania_v004" (looping) http://soundimage.org/funny-3/ I'd love to hear these in a game or a video. Enjoy!
  3. I want to start off by saying that I LOVED this episode. That being said, the woman honking the horn in the car outside the Double R was incredibly off putting to me and not in the way that was intended. IMO there still haven't been enough development of female characters to continually use hysterical women to add flavor to scenes. It just felt icky. On another note, I never imagined having such warm feelings for Bobby Briggs, and I'm pretty sure Hawk is supposed to be the new Coop.
  4. That got a big reaction out of me. "Shelly's going out with the Fingergun Wizard??? Oh COME ON."
  5. Yah! Congrats Patrick!
  6. Today
  7. You are technically correct. The best kind of correct. Normally I'd leave my goof up there but now that you've brought it to my attention I am irritated to no end and it must be corrected. Also the other two times I fucked up.
  8. 'Advise' is the verb 'advice' is the noun (you probably know but I couldn't help it because you starred the word and everything :P)
  9. I personally don't think he brings the Beastcast down but I do agree he brought the Bombcast up. The Mario Party Parties alone are proof of that.
  10. I personally couldn't echo the advice above enough! I am very good at researching a topic, hoping that I will be completely prepared for whatever situation may come up. I will do this for days/weeks/months... for fear of messing something up when I finally decide to do it if at all. I do this still in regards to many other things in life, but once you realize nobody knows all the pitfalls of a game project they are undertaking, and it's a learning process for people of all levels it becomes much easier to just jump in and see what happens. There are some things you can only learn by doing it, and no level of planning will make it easier or better after a certain point.
  11. For the record, and to repeat myself, I don't hate Dan. I even find him entertaining, sometimes. I think he makes the Beastcast worse, but he isn't a reprehensible human being. I think that some of the things he does out of ignorance are shitty. He's getting better but that doesn't mean he's flawless or that he doesn't deserve criticism. In fact, it is precisely because he's criticized that he gets better. He's not reading this thread, obviously, but I am, and I express my opinions because that is what people do. The only time I get actually upset is when people dismiss my and (what happened here) other people's criticisms as if they are unimportant. In other words I also completely agree with SAM (besides the liking Dan part ... mostly). I think he was better on the Bombcast than the Beastcast because he brought the Bomb up and brings the Beast down. I'm no longer angry.
  12. I think SAM has pretty perfectly summed up how I'm feeling. I totally respect the feelings of people who see problematic behaviours as swinging their opinion of the man to negative too. I feel that you can talk about how media might be problematic, even agree that it is, and continue to enjoy that media. It seems pretty rude to attempt to dismantle the explanations for why someone feels something is problematic. If you're not starting your statement with "I respect that you feel that way", what are you achieving?
  13. Was it not readily obvious to anyone else that the thing Jim Belushi tore off Not Jim Belushi's face was a band-aid? Why did this elicit such confusion and bewilderment from our intrepid hosts? Candy gives Not Jim Belushi a mad wound Not Jim Belushi covers mad wound with band-aid Jim Belushi has a dream that mad wound is healed Jim Belushi, realizing his dream is coming true, tears the band-aid off Not Jim Belushi's face to reveal that it was, in fact, healed. Right?
  14. Just watched this. While there were lots of great performances in it (especially Daniel Kaluuya, whom I also really liked in Psychoville) and the satirical elements were really interesting and well-done, I was a little let down by the more genre elements. Despite knowing nothing about the film before watching it (except who the director and lead actor were and that it was a horror that also dealt with the African-American experience), I had worked out that Speaking of that guy, he felt really out-of-place here, in a similar way to Johnny Depp's character in Tusk. He also felt like a black comedy character-type that we see a lot of, but I can't figure out how to describe that type. The kind of guy I'd expect Anthony Anderson to be playing. EDIT: oh, re. the reasons
  15. Well if she has then that's at least a change of pace from the number of victimized women in this season, mostly from Richard Horne. "Oh no FUCK YOU, I am NOT dying in this trailer, I'm going to use every ounce of energy I have to get help and then I'm going to OWN YOUR ASS with the police!" But yeah it's probably that Lynch just wanted to edit the series such that we thought she was dead one week and the next week it turns out she's not. She's probably only been in the woods a few hours hopefully.
  16. Crap, I knew I forgot someone. Spaff's... uh, Data and Garak?

  18. I'm sure, for years after this series has aired, fans like us will be creating highly detailed timelines trying to figure out the order and structure of season three...
  19. Plus, has she been crawling through the woods in that condition for forty-eight hours??!
  20. Of course not. But pretending that we could have a series that is BOTH Lynch-directed AND more suited to its critics' wants is sheer self-indulgent fantasy, and that's what I got frustrated with (in the other post, not yours). It just stinks of fan entitlement (vs legitimate fan disappointment). Plus the pompous tone they were expressing this in, confirmed by their follow-up post which descended into pure insults.
  21. Another great episode! I haven't had a chance to listen to the latest podcast, but I do have a comment about pacing and structure on the show. As mentioned several times in the podcasts, this new series was apparently shot as a whole lot of separate blocks representing specific storylines. These were then pieced together to create the individual parts, possibly without a whole lot of thought to whether or not they create a cohesive single episode. This is why some weeks feel a little more disjointed then others (and why Lynch told us to watch it like an 18-hour movie). In Part Eleven, you can see a little of how these scenes don't always flow together perfectly. At the start of the episode, we see Miriam emerge from the trees. If we presume that those kids called the cops, should there not be a huge manhunt underway for Richard Horne? Even if she was not able to tell the police who her attacker was, you'd think the police would be mobilized and on alert. Yet later in the episode, none of the scenes with Bobby, Hawk, or Truman seem to address this. Later, Deputy not-Elijah Woods is at the scene of the RR shooting and traffic jam...and in the next scene is at the Sheriff's department asking Truman to look at his car. I'm not suggesting that any of these are plot holes, and for all we know many hours (or days!) could have passed between these various events. But it does add to a certain feeling of discontinuity. I'm sure the Miriam and Richard Horne storyline will be developed in future episodes, it just feels like individual scenes don't always fit together perfectly. This is not necessarily a complaint. That disjointed feeling may add to the general spookiness of the show, and the truly unique experience of watching it. However, in some of the lesser episodes - like, I would argue, Part Ten from last week - watching this new season almost feels like you are watching a whole lot of deleted scenes strung together (not unlike the Missing Pieces from Fire Walk With Me). With little connection or context, scenes stand out on their own without much flow. Here's Jerry Horne yelling at trees! Here's Candy acting spacey! Here's Dr. Amp on another rant! If you had told me last weeks episode was a bunch of deleted scenes from the Season Three DVD box set, I would have believed you.
  22. That's awesome man! Can you give any details on it? Will it be something publically viewable?
  23. I count myself in the "I like Dan but find him problematic" crowd. I find Dan to be enthusiastic and entertaining in a way that most of the Bombcast crew weren't before he moved East. That bit of improv he did a few weeks ago was maybe one of the funniest things I've heard on the Beastcast. And I derive a not-so-guilty pleasure at seeing corrections aimed directly at fixing the dumb things he says. All that said, I recognize the issues that others here are finding in him. As I previously stated, I don't think he's a bad guy and he isn't out there with the intent of purposely misleading people. But he does give a lot of advice* from a place of ignorance that is at best bad and at worst harmful. That he often admits he doesn't know what he's talking about is good but it's not an excuse that exonerates him. And I am absolutely guilty of this sin myself so I'm not trying to place myself above him. The difference is he has a very public presence and I know a lot of people aren't going to hear the part where he says he doesn't know better and just remember the (bad) advice. At least that's what worries me. I'm not saying he can't have or express his opinion or talk about his own life experiences. I'm not even saying that he shouldn't. What I am saying is I wish he were more aware of it (and to his credit he does appear to be trying) and maybe try to educate himself more rather than relying on his immediate peers (who also probably don't know significantly more than him) for answers. There isn't an immediate answer if one even exists at all. But I think its worth pointing out and discussing the issue instead of ignoring it one way or the other. *I don't necessarily mean regarding anxiety, I honestly don't know what his book says or really remember what he himself has said in the past. I'm fortunate enough to have not had that issue in my life (at least to the point of needing medical help, I certainly have anxiety about plenty of things) so I can't personally speak to how good/bad his advice is.
  24. Yeah, it sounds like they were probably given prompts a little bit ahead of time - that still seems like a nightmare. It looks like they are announcing a whole bunch of new MBMBAMand TAZ dates and the ticket sales go live on Friday. Will definitely hit up the Chicago date, I might actually try to drive down to TN to go see TaZ live.
  25. Haha, I had a feeling you were just a spittle-coated troll, thanks for confirming. There is a 0% chance Lynch was gonna meekly come back to Showtime if they refused to re-negotiate. But thanks for playing.
  26. Very minor note: I think the editing in the first scene of the kids playing catch is quite deliberate. The two older boys are playing with each other and the youngest is basically just tagging along. The older boys throw to each other, but every once in a while they lob one to the little guy so he can feel included. He's too young to be relevant to their practice, which is why we barely see him at first, but they're good brothers, so they don't leave him out entirely. Perhaps I'm giving too much credit, but I got that sense immediately, conveying a family dynamic in just a matter of seconds.
  27. Yeah, I really hated 'Baby', if they had replaced him with another actor I might have liked the whole film a bit more. You needed someone with the charisma of someone like Michael B Jordan to pull him off.
