Re: Do you have a will?

Even if one donates everything to a university film school, it will likely end up being being sent later to the garbage dump if the librarian/archivist can't find any use for it.

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

In a more general sense, this also happens with some alcoholics, smokers, degenerate gamblers, etc ...

Willpower is completely ineffective with some folks, in changing behavior.

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

This sounds like an individual personal version of Parkinson's Law.

Re: Would you expect to be fired after receiving this card on your desk?

In a large enough workplace, the HR (human resources) department may very well be making hiring / firing decisions completely independent of the group/division bosses.

Basically the right hand...

Re: Coldplay - Music of the Spheres

Heh.

No big suprise here, considering this album is another homogenized Max Martin production.

Wonder if such folks are willing to get a needle injection of morphine (or heroin) or another painkiller.

Re: This thread will make you feel OLD

Anybody can release their own album or single nowadays.

The hard part is whether anybody else is listening to it, besides one's friends/family.

Shows which were canceled with a cliffhanger, such as Dark Matter.

Re: Best seriesí in the 21st century?

A better question is how many tv shows mentioned so far in this thread, will be even remembered in the year 2099 ?

How many tv/media/holodeck viewers in the year 2099 will be aware of something...

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

(More generally).

During the hard lockdowns over the first and second waves over 2020-2021, wonder how common such "renegade partying" was pulled off without any blowback.

The Law & Order franchise will continue nonstop well into the 22nd century, on terrestrial and martian network television.

Re: Best seriesí in the 21st century?

How exactly are you defining "21st century" ?

For example, are you including tv shows made in the years 2054? 2099? 2082? 2066?

Do you have a crystal ball or time machine? ;)

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

(On an offtopic tangent).

When push comes to shove, most "schools of thought" whether an ideology, religion, worldview, etc .... starts to disintegrate when self-preservation takes over.

Re: Has the business of Hollywood made audiences jaded?

You might be on to something here.

I think this started slightly earlier, with Napster and P2P networks destroying the market viability of the music cd format. It was inevitable digital online...

Re: Has the business of Hollywood made audiences jaded?

Is there a possibility of this being the result of a long term "tail wagging the dog" and/or "astroturfing" type of marketing campaign ?

Re: Has the business of Hollywood made audiences jaded?

I've found reading/watching such film reviews largely useless. Easier to just read a website like tvtropes that collates all the tropes used in a particular show/movie.

Re: Capitol Building Riot Jan 6, 2021

A "nuclear option" is to outright ban such political operations.

This happened in 1954 when the american communist party was legally banned. Long enough to take the wind out of the sails of the...

Expats end up doing this when they can't get official id documents in the local jurisdiction they live in. (Independent of whether an expat is a legal or illegal alien).

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Wonder if either of these guys ever made a deathbed confession, by coming clean about their "reverse sokal hoax" back in 2002.
