Random fun fact:

If I'm not mistaken, this copypasta played a prominent role in my stupid 4chan saga.

I don't remember having bumped into it since then.

Re: Cool vids...again.

"Rise of Skywalker" opened while I was ever so briefly in LA last December.
In the immediate debrief of our communal viewing [namedrop] Ryan and Seth [/namedrop] strenuously disagreed with me that deepfake tech might have been (or should have been) used to enhance the late Ms. Fisher's performances. I have yet to re-watch, so I remain on the fence.

All things being equal?

Me being an idiot?

Me having not seen the movie?

Me being the most arrogant thing that has ever happened?

I think you're right.

This is going to be a touchy subject for VFXers.

BDG has been going very existential with the Unraveled episodes lately, and I both love it and fear it deeply.

Oh man. Love BDG.

I've mainlined this whole series repeatedly at this point. Couldn't be more with ya.

Related to my "might start believing in Bigfoot as a semi-bit" chat post, have a stabilized/digitally enhanced version of the Patterson-Gimlin footage.

This one (.gifv, so no preview window) isn't zoomed in like the one above but is arguably clearer as a result.

And then, of course, for those who haven't seen it, here's the original footage.

Along with the "Sierra sounds," where a pair of hunters recorded themselves egging on mysterious vocalizations happening in the night.

Real? Probably not. But fuck it, cryptids are fun to think about, and the original Patterson-Gimlin footage is more effective than like 98% of found-footage horror.

So, uh, if you've ever wanted to listen to an audiobook of "The Call of Cthulhu," someone just used speech synthesis software to have Ronald Reagan narrate the whole thing.

EDIT: Alec Guiness too.

Turns out he has his own channel with another video:

Re: Cool vids...again.

I got to see Mark do this whole show live during my 100% Completely Cursed Fringe Trip™ last year, and it was one of the best one man shows I've ever seen. It's kind of unfortunate this video doesn't get far enough into the show for him to start switching between characters, because watching Mark just effortlessly bounce between entirely different personalities at the flip of a switch is an amazing thing to witness.

We may have lost protest songs, but I will gladly accept the rise of quarantine songs.
