Thu, 14 October 2010 2 good videos showing the evils of full screen videos ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED OCT. 29, 2009. I can't believe people still need to be educated about this. I was in the video store the other month, and I overheard a guy talking about how much he hated widescreen. By the guy's words, I could tell he really didn't know what it was. He thought widescreen was stretched with the top and bottom of the picture missing. He was obviously one of those obnoxious people who cares not a bit about art anyway, so explaining things to him would have likely been a lost cause. But let me just declare it here, because it can't be said enough for all the people out there who prefer full screen versions of movies made in widescreen (which is most movies from the last 50 years): Widescreen is the WHOLE picture, as the director intended. Full screen is missing half of the picture; fake camera pans are inserted; it's awful. Widescreen is the real deal. If those black bars on the top and bottom of your screen bother you, I encourage you to get over it. Here are two videos that demonstrate what I'm saying.

Fri, 15 October 2010 have you seen The Road?
In the movie The Road (now out on video), you may remember a few scenes around the beginning where they are on an abandoned highway and near a tunnel. The locations they used for those scenes are near my town. Here's a photo (taken by JJ) and a link to a great website about the location: http://www.pahighways.com/toll/abandonedturnpike.html

Mon, 28 March 2011 excuses, excuses... Just wanted to let listeners know that all is well. March has been one of the most intensely busy months I've weathered at work. An entire week could pass without my computer even getting powered on. I have, however, been able to record bits while driving that can be put together later. April looks a lot more relaxed, and I'll have some time off to podcast.
