A new Star Trek Continues episode.

It still amazes me how well this show is able to recreate the feel of ST-TOS. The stories these guys come up with could've actually been a part of the original series.

Holy shit, this is still happening? I worked on one of these a million years ago, had no idea they just kept goin' with it. Nice group of folks.

Yup. Unlike Axanar, they weren't sued. Let's keep our fingers crossed, they're doing great work.

Turn on annotations for subtitles. Not the CC... Annotations. It was uploaded before CC was a thing.
There are two other parts: Part 2 and Part 3.

Two of my favorite Japanese directors chat about directing films. This is before Kitano had his scooter accident, apparently, so assuming that he had directed at least one film prior to this interview, then it's most likely from some point between 1989 and 1994.

This was invented by someone who was asked "What instrument do you want to learn?" and they replied "All of them, at once."

God loves you!

Organs come pretty close, too. Jump to 00:20. (Right-arrow four times.)

This guy was asked the same question but had a different answer.

Re: Cool vids...again.

Yeah Wintergarten's stuff is great. After finding that original one the other night I went on a bit of a tear through player instruments. I love things that are just built out of pure human ingenuity and will. Like...I want a thing that'll play 6 violins for me automatically, or an accordion or a frickin banjo or insert instrument here....






I love these things so hard.

HOLY HELL. This sounds EXACTLY like the MIDI versions of the theme on old Star Wars games.

Star Trek Continues ended with a great two-parter (thanks for everything, guys).

Well, I went to DAVE with Dan Dod, and one of those guys is John Fucking Knoll Are You Shitting Me, so, yeah.

(If you remember the 'Limp Dick Christmas Lights' music video, there's a single of a guy in a suit doing an over-the-top 'what's going on around here?' look — that's Dan.)

It's the 30th anniversary of a media prank that remains a mystery to this day - the Max Headroom TV signal jamming incident.

Ha!

I remember first learning about this in a great story on Damn Interesting (one of my favorite websites) years ago. Seriously, if you're unfamiliar with that site, I've got some good news for you: shitloads of great content.

I love that video and that old guy. I think I actually commented on it at one point.
