Is Altertube a thing?

quote [ A decentralized video hosting network, based on free/libre software ]

Main link goes to a PeerTube instance, which looks like a nice enough concept, minus the music rights, obviously; and little content.

Ewoks are Sci-Fi's Most Dangerous Warriors

quote [ When things are looking bad, they don?t run, they adjust and adapt, probing for weaknesses in their foe. They suffer lopsided losses without breaking. This isn?t their first large-scale engagement. When you realize that, their eagerness to join the final battle becomes all the more amazing. They knew exactly what they were getting into, knew the impossible odds, looked at an entire Legion of the Emperor?s best troops, and said in one voice, ?I?m your Huckleberry.? ]

I don't normally post blogs, but this is decent and insightful read. I heard the Ewoks were supposed to be Wookies (merch-purposes), but the idea was scrapped after they couldn't find tall enough actors to play them on the required scale. Didn't really try hard to hide this -- Ewok is a lazy anagram of Wookie.

How 1960s Film Pirates Sold Movies Before the FBI Came Knocking

quote [ It was a Friday evening in 1975, and Woody Wise was driving from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, with his two kids in the car. He had picked them up from school in a rush, but they weren?t going on vacation. They were hiding out from the FBI. ]

‘Roseanne’ Canceled at ABC

quote [ The move comes after series star Roseanne Barr made a comment on Twitter Tuesday morning referring to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as the offspring of the ?Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.?

?Roseanne?s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,? ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement. ]

Well - that escalated quickly...

Rick and Morty is getting a whopping 70 more episodes

quote [ The unprecedented order from Adult Swim means we?ll see the characters for years to come. ]

Wow. I mean, it's a pretty good show and all, but 70 episodes equals about 7 seasons in today's short attention spanned world. Season 3 was pretty hit or miss, what if the show starts to really suck after a couple more seasons? I remember South Park getting a big reorder but even that was only gonna carry it to like 2020 or around that, and I stopped watching that series a couple years ago.

FilmFuns #4: Groundhog Day has one tiny flaw

quote [ This is how Rita would have lived Groundhog Day.
(Just a note, this is a nitpick for fun, Groundhog Day is an exceptionally good film that everyone should see.) ]

One fine day the groundhog knows

It?s Not HBO, It?s UHF

quote [ The quickly forgotten phenomenon of scrambled television stations that ran over the air on UHF signals. Not everyone had cable TV at first. ]

When UHF was cutting-edge, the days when there was no rewind

?2001: A Space Odyssey?: What It Means, and How It Was Made

quote [ Hippies may have saved ?2001.? ?Stoned audiences? flocked to the movie. David Bowie took a few drops of cannabis tincture before watching, and countless others dropped acid. According to one report, a young man at a showing in Los Angeles plunged through the movie screen, shouting, ?It?s God! It?s God!? ]

Nice deep recollection of anecdotes. Protip: turning off Javascript immensely speeds up page loading.
