In that episode I remember so well - BECAUSE it was so critical to the whole show's premise - was that they had made some glue and tried to patch the hole (that was above the water line). Turned out the "glue" was an anti-glue and it made the whole boat fall apart in an absurd cartoonish fashion. Even I thought it was silly as a kid. In that particular image you can see the boards pealing back which would make no sense if there were any nails.

My favourite episodes were when visitors came (though they were all bastards who left them), but above those were the later ones with all the "clever" inventions - including their car build from bamboo and stuff.

I don't remember the black and white episodes in reruns. And heck, a standard staple of comedy routines in the 90s was "the Professor could make a Geiger counter out of two coconuts and a vine, how come he can't fix a two foot hole in a boat?"

I have a feeling it won't be too hard hitting, while also muddying the waters about other "families".

What are some good books to read, films or Shows to watch during the Corona lockdown? by BillionDollarEgg3 in Television

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

If Dumas wasn't your bag, don't force it. Just because he's exceptionally popular doesn't mean it's for everyone. Shakespeare is too. I honestly don't like reading it, except to learn about historical contexts of things. IMO, folks are clinging to over-played out ideas and olde psyops there (puns intended).

Steppenwolf is among my favourite novels of all time. Abstract and philosophical, it's not for everyone. Also from Hesse that is top notch is Siddhartha, especially recommended for anyone who does not know about Zen Buddhism, which I took in university so I already knew most of it before I read it, but loved it regardless. Narcissus And Goldmund is very good too, though not on their level. I have yet to read Beneath The Wheel and Magister Ludi on my shelf. I'm quite certain there were more, but I must have lent them or something. (I lend books and rarely get them back. And the worst part is that I never lend shitty books - only the good ones worth recommending.)

I"ll put The Glass Bead Game and The Stars My Destination in my folder of books to buy online when the COVID shit eases up, as books are cheaper in the US than Canada. Thanks for the recs.

I highly recommend The Glass Bead Game, though it's the only one of his that I've read. Which others would you recommend?

I think Monte Cristo is the only Dumas book I've read all the way through. I started Three Musketeers when I was younger, but put it down. I should give it another shot. Since we're talking about revenge, another scifi book comes to mind that I really enjoyed: Alfred Bester - The Stars My Destination

Wow thanks man, a lot to take in. I will have a read through and explore your links. I am always down for watching / reading anything and love weird shit if its done right.

As for my accent, I am a New Zealander who has lived in Australia for over 10 years so its a bit of a mishmash these days! I have made some animations on my channel, but they are just silly joke things (the Toe Jam Football one is my favourite):

Hesse is indeed great. I've read several and still have a few on my shelf yet to read. I don't have The Glass Bead Game. Should I find a copy?

Interesting about Cristo. I loved that book, but now that you mention it, it has little to do with the characters. At least the 3 Musketeers has personalities. The Black Tulip was great too, underrated, IMO. I read a lot of classics that were made into swashbuckling movies. Some were better than others. For me it was about immersion and escaping to another time and place. I wonder how much of the media I consumed in my life would have very different appreciations if I were have known all that I now know about Machiavellianism and truth-seeking, not to mention about plot/character writing. (Before I was just a professional animator. Now I'm writing to have better and meaningful content to actually animate eventually.)

Revenge is certainly among the petty emotions, yet somehow I think many can identify that Cristo really earns it. More flat than the book was the 2002 movie adaptation that utterly Hollywoodized the ending and cast a dud as the protagonist. Guy Pierce was good as usual, but it all had so much potential to be great.

Hesse is great, I recently read The Glass Bead Game, excellent book. I'm in the minority here as most people seem to love it, but I found the characters in Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo somehow flat, and finishing it was a bit of a chore. People's History is on my to read list, I may start that when I finish my current book.

I saw your Cheer Squad vid. Obviously it didn't compel me to watch. When you recommended it I started watching Cheer! but stopped. It felt creepy and weird, and like I was a stereotype dirty old man. A while later it came up again on Nerdrotic, so I tried again and finally got past the initial weirdness - and was rewarded. Expertly presented. As was Tiger King, something else altogether.

Indeed. Andy Warhol said something about 15 minutes. MTV made it 15 seconds. Now it's 1.5 seconds, while multitasking.

I'm guessing you might already have seen many of these, but there might be something of interest you haven't...

Movie lists by topic, not all recommendable, but their scores on IMDb can indicate their quality:

I didn't watch/rewatch them all when adding them to these lists, nor have I bothered to actually review them as movies, and obviously there are a lot of blanks for notes about why they belong on the list.

If you write up reviews, comments, or other notes for any of the items in those lists I'd be happy to add your thoughts, with credit, or without, or just join InfoGalactic and contribute directly.

Book lists:

Above all: "The CIA As Organized Crime: How Illegal Operations Corrupt America And The World" by Douglas Valentine

Not on those lists:

Also, for your edutainment, should you seek it, my fave source for "friendly" content (though my wish list at the bottom remains largely unrequited, likely due to not being recent releases): https://infogalactic.com/info/Tigole.

If you're interested I could dig up my fave movies list I wrote to a friend last year. Perhaps you might find some new ones, perhaps worthy of review/promotion. And if you can gleen the essence of why I love those movies, maybe you can recommend some new to me. Or we could just swap notes, or riff, or whatever.

Thanks for Hide And Seek. Love your voice and accent. Ever consider animation?

I have yet to read latter Neal Stephenson, though I have some. Diamond Age and Cryptonomicon are cemented in the back of my mind.

Also, Herman Hesse, Alexander Dumas, and Howard Zinn's People's History - classics.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed Cheer! I hope they make more, it was really engaging. On the cheer front, we also watched Cheer Squad but I don't think it was anywhere near as good as Cheer.

With reference to your other comment, in my recent video I briefly mentioned in my review for a Korean movie called Hide and Seek that one thing I liked was that the lead character was just an ordinary guy, not a cop or doctor or ex-military etc. He's just a dude that owns a coffee shop.

The catch with making videos / reviews is trying to keep viewers engaged, even if a video is less than 5mins long. These days with so much content available, people have very short attention spans, and unless a video is about something they are specifically interested in or sufficiently scandalous, they will click off very quickly.

I have no mat talk but I did watch it between now and when you recommended it. Brilliant! Thanks for the rec.

I've also enjoyed your concise videos! Great work.

If I were to do a show like that I'd try to offer one more thing that I have yet to see much of out there - a skeptical analysis of propagandist nature of "authority". Some people touch on it here and there, or you get Renegade Cut who is 1/3 woke and 2/3 good critical analysis, but no one seems to focus on it.

To clarify what I mean with one easy example is this: How come there aren't more shows about plumbers, architects, mechanics, vintage store owners, ambulance drivers, etc? More specifically, why are there sooo damn many always about cops, spies, military, politicians, and "authority"? Just like going to church weekly for your brainwashing, the abundance of "authority" in media is programming you to accept it. Even if you get some CIA asshats that clown it up all movie long - they are still the "authorities" with the power. That power, authority, and expertise remains unquestioned and intact. And they are usually allowed to "justifiably cross the line" without ramifications.

Obviously it's a huge pet peeve of mine. I don't expect you to inject this kind of subversive commentary into all your videos (though I would be a fan for life), but maybe feel free to amp it up a bit. Also, feel free to take use/abuse these words and ideas as you see fit.

Actually, it's not exactly true. If you read the Wikipedia and IMDb trivia you'll find little things there. For example, the meth mouth guy with a few teeth has an inherited problem and was asked by the documentarians to remove his teeth for the interviews. I can't recall the other bits that were slanted.

Somebody sounds salty over streaming services.

Sir David was speaking at a Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee where his policy director, Clare Sumner, claimed that 21 million households pay for a television licence out of choice.

Most people end up paying for a television licence because they feel they have to. In most instances you can tell them to fuck off, don't let them in your house and give them reason to believe you don't have a licence and you're sorted. There's quite a few videos of this happening on YouTube actually, it's quite funny.

Not surprised the chairman of big black cock is making over-75's pay a licence fee for their shitty, outdated television. It's time to buy your grandparents that firestick they wanted for christmas.

Awesome! The Jerry Springer Show was a really odd peice of absurdity art. (I loved Larry in Curb your Enthusiasm watching it in his hotel room that one time)

With Judge Judy coming to an end this fills a pretty good gap. Judy was a very cut and dry, don't let the nonsense fly, type. I hope Jerry isn't too ridiculous.

Fuck off with this Corona virus bullcrap. It isn't even as serious as SARS. It won't kill a healthy person, it is being over-exaggerated by the perception management corporate media and pushed by government as a propganda campaign against China.

How about infections like Borrelia burgdorferi, possibly a bio-weapon from Plum Island, that if left untreated slowly kills the person. 300,000+ people a year in the US alone aquire this terrible disease in the US, an epedemic that will eventually destroy our economy, which is why the CDC and Tom Friedan, a sexual assault criminal lies and pretends it doesn't exist at the CDC. Again, he is also a Zionist Jew working at the controlling levels of the CDC. Just a cohencidence I guess.

You wonder why more than ever, more people between the ages of 23 - 41 have neurodegenerative diseases. It is almost like it was planned.

The painful part and watching people suffer is too much for me. I don't like the COPS shows and the Funniest Home Videos - and the YouTube equivalents - because people get hurt.

I didn't catch the "overcoming adversity" thing but that is indeed a worthy reason. And the unconventional nonconformist angle is also worth embracing.

I feel guilty in that they are television shows - as in, a waste of time when I could be saving the world. Maybe I also feel guilty they aren't rare finds worthy of more interest.

In my mind, and I may be wrong, by embracing the sharding it might make it easier to share databases that aren't "complete". Rather than requiring a complete full database, one might be able to use a less than intact database, and collect the rest of the shards over time. Maybe I misunderstood what you and M7 did over the weekend. I thought you were recalculating the whole database, and down the road might need to again. I don't know what that entails but it might be neat if you could do that in parts, and maybe even in shard parts, then maybe it might not be such a big event - and be easier to share (and thus decentralize). Maybe I'm talking too abstractly about things I know nothing about.

I like that you don't archive stuff. I guess that's part of it too. Maybe there's a way to "archive" stuff, and then alter/build changes on it in later epochs.

I'm excited about BsS but fear I might be overselling it. But maybe not. The worst thing is knowing it's good, and not being able to show much yet. I'm ready to explode. But there's sooooooo much more to go before it's even presentable as a first pass. It's also frustrating because it starts very small and humble and builds to an epic scale - so you can't really fathom it until you understand the whole journey.

i don't know what the goal of this sharding is. We could calculate all sorts of stats by year now if we wanted to. and we purposefully don't let posts become "archived" like on reddit.

your guilty pleasure shows don't sound very guilty to me. I'm glad that you're making progress on your mega-project.

My cousin likes Shark Tank and Dragon's Den. I only saw the Canadian version of one of them, I forget which, and found it droll. 9+ years ago?

While I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers, I have no interest in Paris Hilton. And cooking shows make me hungry and envious and sad at my state.

So I avoid such things and try to dig my way out of my state and focus on making the epic I would want to see. (And just maybe it might bring me some "success" to escape my state.) Some days are good and some meh, and it's taking longer than I thought to configure the whole thing, but the more progress I make the more momentum it seems to have, yet it also becomes more apparent that there's ever so much yet to do in getting it out of my head and into words and images. Obviously consumes most of my thoughts. Its exhausting and invigorating simultaneously. And it's also disappointing and refreshing to be putting the pieces in place while leaving a pile of pieces on the side. I have too much story and/or backstory for just a movie, which is kind of a waste, but it's also better than trying to fill time or something. And now I'm trying to "cut" it all down to the essentials, without wasting time or feeling rushed within 2 hours 20 minutes, roughly. (It can always be edited down in post. 2001 and Fight Club were both about that length too, though I felt the former dragged and the latter whipped by.) Really, it might work better as a mini series.

I was actually thinking about PMing you before sitting down to this. I was gonna ask if there was a way of "sharding" the SaidIt database so that you could process, say, each year - then when it's time to look back, tally, search, etc then it could just calculate the most recent year then add that to the accumulated past years. And every year you start a new shard, and add the new shard to the old shard list and re-tally their totals. Or something. Maybe I'm just talking out my ass. Or hopefully it's something to think about 1) before the next upgrade, 2) towards decentralization modularization, and 3) general efficiency. Food for thought?

Mindless. zero stakes. no consequences. crap dialogue. Ridiculous situations and resolutions. relies on appeal-to-nostalgia, with hits every 20s or so. Dumb show for dumb people

Turns out I Love Lucy was one of THE first tv sitcoms, ever. 1951 was when it started, just a year after Crusader Rabbit.

Every episode is on youtube for free, since it's just shy of 70 years old! It's kind of fun to watch something so old and think about how it compares to modern animated comedy. This was the pioneer for all those shows. Nice holiday watching :)

Turns out Benioff's father was former head of Goldman Sachs.

You don't get to be anyone, if your family wasn't already someone.

So, during season 7 there were a HALF-DOZEN spin-off shows planned. After the season 8 collapse (which D&D said "they had no idea what they were doing, they made it up on set, they didn't like the magical aspect") that was cut to ONE spin-off "The Long Night"/codename "Bloodmoon".

I speculated that the reason they offed the nightking so quickly and without exposition (while having him SMILE, indicating emotion/personality rather than a-moral killing machine) was so that the spin-off show could serve as his backstory.

Then D&D admit they fucked up (as per OP) and now even that spin-off is cancelled. However, a week later they announce a NEW Spin-off - "House of the Dragon" or some such shit.

Valuable franchise that the profit-driven people just can't face reality about (leave it alone for 10 years, do something else, you can make money from it later (and during, from merch sales)) - yet, it's a rich universe, filled with possibility - if only George would finish the last two fucking books.

Edit:

As Nerdrotic says: "You just have to face the fact that untalented hacks work in hollywood."

"Benioff and Weiss still aren’t sure why George R.R. Martin entrusted them with his magnum opus, as the two didn’t have any comparable experience, or even an appreciation of the book’s themes."

"Benioff once said: “Themes are for eighth-grade book reports,” which tells you all you need to know about his dedication to the art of storytelling."

"The two went on to admit that they had absolutely no idea how to work with costume designers (kind of important for a fantasy series), and described their experience making Thrones as “an expensive film school.” "

Brooker ran out of great ideas - that is all.

Happens all the time. My theory: A writer works for a long time on scripts and ideas, sometimes for years polishing up dialogue and story. Then....oh no! Here comes Netflix and they will produce anything!

Then...oh no! The show is a big hit! Now, in order to CASH IN the writer is faced with the prospect of developing a season 2 in a limited amount of time. So he churns out the crappola, not nearly as slick as his first effort, but hopefully good enough to cash in.

Name the show?

True Detective.

But it could apply to many shows.

What happened to Game of Thrones?

A: they ran out of slick George Martin material so TV writers had to wing it.
