  • I'm not getting too invested in this Camp Redwood thing. It seems we are rapidly running through some 80s slasher film clichés, and if last season was any indication, there will be at least a couple huge pivots. 
  • This is not bad. It helps that I certainly don't understand Russian, so it's still mostly ambient lol
  • hey everyone! Just checking in to say that I've been trying reaaaaaallllly hard not to give our psychic vampire POTUS any more attention, and just laugh at the constant stream of memes, made all the more easier by the inclusion of sharpie mockups to…
  • Melancholic Sovietwave lol @Murderbear @Cecily I usually default to ChilledCow, but will sometimes hop around Apropos to the current focus of BM, Adult Swim did an hour in the lofi chillhop vein here:
  • @johnnytruant ah you mentioned The Album Leaf, made me think of Cold Front by Hammock. According to Google Play Music, I've listened to Cold Front 204 times. More if you count the music video on YouTube, which I found along with something by The Alb…
  • That's damned impressive @JaimieT . I think I got to shortly after episode 100 and just recently started hoping around picking episodes at random, background listening to them. They make good ambient chatter when I'm sick of listening to my lofi hip…

  • @blacksunrise7 I've been listening to the audiobook and am about 60ish percent done. I think the book would make a good read, Dan Simmons is great, but the audiobook is particularly fantastic. The narrator gives this awesome sort of growling voice …
  • yeah, I'm happy for what is hopefully a long string of shows trying to match and exceed the first 5 seasons of GoT It's sorta like Bright, but 19th century England. Following my binge of S1 of The Terror, and now reading the book, I can't get enou…
  • I've started reading the comic after binging the tv show. The comic is much more, um, colorful than the show... as hard as that might be to believe.
  • I binged S1 a couple weeks ago. What a marvelous, terrifying and grief-stricken show. Even without the threat of a supernatural man-bear-pig, ~1850 technology against the arctic with lead-infused and spoiled provisions.... man. Anyhow, great show, …
  • I was drafting a comment, but this article pretty much sums up, and expands on, my thoughts on the 20-odd minutes of Chappelles latest set that I could stand to watch https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2019/08/dave-chappelle-doubles-d…
  • holy shit hyyyyyyyyype

  • and before I go out and enjoy this beautiful north-central Ohio weather (it finally stopped raining!), one more reiteration I know I can setup the ad-free feeds. It actually does work now, at least for the Bald Move TV cast, with stitcher. In the …
  • They addressed this at the very end of yesterday's lunch. Basically, it is a new contract they signed where some system has been implemented that dynamically inserts one or more ads into each of the podcasts. These are selected based on some automat…
  • appreciate that @Flukes , I've got it figured out for at least the Bald Move TV cast. Maybe they are failing to find live-read type sponsors for that feed and so are slapping this generic commercial stuff there, and the other tent-pole casts will be…
  • thanks @Michelle . To be clear, I am fine with live reads, and advertising in that sense. This is different.
  • So I started going back in the feed to find when the ads started, and it looks like there has been some sort of tech put in that is preloading each cast with an ad perhaps dynamically, or it was done in a batch.  Probably dynamic though since every…
  • I started going back in the feed to see when this started, and the first one I picked is proof in point in how stupid these ads are : https://baldmove.com/tv-podcast/chernobyl-episode-4-the-happiness-of-all-mankind/ It's a spanish language ad for C…
  • Hunkulese said: Really? You feel punished because they have ads? Really? Really? Yup, the specific kind of ads. @JaimieT mentioned automatically skipping the first 15-30 seconds (however long they are, sometimes there are two) as a worka…
  • JaimieT said: So you want people to spend hours writing and recording interesting ads because you don't want to spend 10 minutes figuring out the feed. Other suggestion: download a better podcast app and have it automatically skip the first …
  • I use pocketcasts, the last time (a year or so ago?) I tried to use the tool it didn't work. However, I was able to get the ad-free TV feed to work just now, although I don't really want an ad-free feed. I want a straight-up commercial free feed. …
  • And has this been brought up anywhere else? During any of the increasingly infrequent lunches?
  • >I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan.  YAAAAAAS As far as overgrown-garden type narratives, Martin has nothing on From Software
  • blue_sleeve said: jleav382 said: btw has anyone seen trailers for Netflix's black summer?  AMC better watch out...this might be what kills off TWD. That trailer was intense. I agree, that trailer looks interesting, but one thi…

  • I liked the way the highwaymen turned out. In particular, the fact that there wasn't some crazy murderous conflict. They turned a potential enemy into an ally, all with the promise of movies
  • >On February 21, 2019, Netflix confirmed that the show makers of The Haunting of Hill House would adapt the novella for the anthology series' second season, named The Haunting of Bly Manor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Turn_of_the_Screw
  • overall, I thought this was a good season, sure as hell beats S2. and how are you going to get lightning in the bottle again like S1 was? my take on the finale: realllllly underwhelming... but not bad. Basically, the "mystery" was solved in E6, re…
