The Wintergatan channel is worth giving a watch.

There's nothing quite like a thousand foot tall, and naked, advert when your weighing up life's options. That, at best, has got to be an inconvenience to your day somewhat. And here I thought adverts were obnoxious now. I wonder if there is an adblock palliative in this world...

Not so much a reboot or a remake but a redo of the city establishing model shots in Logan's Run would be grand.

Being a part time Trekker - I dug ST:D. Looking forward to see where they 'boldly go' with this.

And, as much as I miss the Klingons looking like seasoned metal-heads, I'm down with the new look.

'Navy in space'... I certainly felt seasick with all the dutch angles and messing with the 180 rule - the camera work was all, at least, interesting and at most, a bit distracting.

'The Orville' episode 1: I almost liked it. I mean, it kept my attention to the end so...?! It turned out to be just a watered down version of both trek and family guy - never nailing the tone of either leaving me confused to what it was trying to be. In honesty, I would have liked it more if Seth McFarlane wasn't leading in it. He isn't a leading man. Don't get me wrong he has a fantastic character voice but a voice does not an actor make.

There is few I can add to this... we all seem to watch the same stuff. Then again I clicked on a vid 10 years ago  - 'Car Horn vs Boat Horn' and the ilk still pop up in my recommended list. Regardless... here is my two cents.

Channel: OxfordUnion https://www.youtube.com/user/OxfordUnion
tl;dr: Basically an Oxbridge elitist AMA with fantastic guests and craic. Stanley Tucci being a highlight of late.

Channel: Cyriac https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9Ntx- … 1nQ5rTUP2g
tl;dr: A twisted After Effects animator. Fantastic art style helped by his crazy mind. Known for his fractals and bizarre.


Channel: Georg Rockall - Schmidt https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG5h8y … zPnh0dG0SA
tl;dr: nothing beats a satirical brit's take on the world.

I'm actually quite surprised the 13th Doctor announcement wait is almost over. If the bookies are to be believed it will be the brain dead goof ball from My Family - Chris Marshall. Hmm. I haven't seen him in anything other than that. I can see it working if I squint hard enough. But I hope it's a lady. I think now is the right time.

Know your guitar tunings, kids.

Teague: in unrelated news, I just came up with a handy mnemonic device for remembering guitar tuning.
Teague: I mean... I myself don't benefit from it, because I already know standard tuning. but.
Teague: the strings are tuned to EADGBE.
Teague: usually the mnemonic you hear is something like "eddie ate dynamite, good bye eddie" or something. no sir.
Teague: I nominate "eat a dick, get bent, etc."
Writhyn: Well obviously the first one doesn't work because Eddie can damn well eat dynamite and be fine.
Teague: true fact.
Regan: To throw in a topical one... Europeans All Despise Great Britain's Exit.
