  1. Last week
  2. The second part of "CinemaStix" in-depth look at "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" caught my attention, so I looked for Part One. Press PLAY if you want to find out what makes this 1975 movie iconic.;) Here's Part Two...
  3. Gamer "The Last Bacon" dives into "Influxis" while waiting for "Subnautica 2" to take shape until 2025. What's lurking in the shallows of this unexplored planet?
  4. Kickstarter programs seen on the internet have a "silicon snake oil" air about them, promising much and sometimes delivering, but often not. Matt signed on as a Backer for Miniot's Wheel in 2017, waited...and waited, wondering what had happened. Press PLAY if you want to find out what Techmoan's over-2,000 UK Pounds got him, if you dare.;)
  5. Two interested YouTubers interviewed Alex Hirsch of "Gravity Falls" fame on the show and cartoon production. What's next after the cancellation of "Inside Job"? Press PLAY if you don't mind sailing into a 78+ minute slideshow/Podcast to find out about how "Next on 'Gravity Falls" sold the show to Disney and how Jesus the Handyman became "Soos.";)
  6. Earlier
  7. https://www.youtube.com/@bobsburgersoutros3737/videos "Bob's Burgers" has a number of great songs to close the episode. I should have linked to a video, but sometimes you have to go to the source and pick the one you like. Click on the above link and see if there's something to like here.;)
  8. Summer is just over the horizon, so it's time to visit the town of Gravity Falls, Oregon. Oops! Dipper and Mabel have been shrunk by Gideon, what will you have to do to "get big again?" Press PLAY to go Up/Down/Side-to Side in this 2D adventure game.

  10. Do you watch Blu-Ray movies late at night and want to hear every sonic nuance? The neighbors will lynch you if you do? "Techmoan" had that problem, so Old Tech came to his rescue. Press PLAY if you want to find out how much of a sound bubble Techmoan got and if there's any modern solution to the "torture the house cat" problem.
  11. I don't like SmartPhone videos and especially hate companies that format their content for such devices. (That's why I rarely view Microsoft Edge stuff!) Still, beauty just is, regardless of format. Press PLAY to hear what talented players can do with Chapman Sticks... What is a Chapman Stick?
  12. Pour yourself an after-work cup of coffee or Tea, it's time to wind down on Friday. Press PLAY if you've ever wondered what Disco sounds like slowed down to Ballad tempo...

  14. Here we go again, a mix of two very different music genres turned into something worthy of "Weird Al" Yankovic! Press PLAY to hear what Simon & Garfunkel make of "postmodern mucis.";) 1992 Sir-Mix-A-Lot Original
  15. Some things just pop up and catch my eye on YouTube. Ron Goodwin's "Aces High" is a great triumphal march for the we-just-won-the-battle-of-France Luftwaffe in itself.

  18. I've been watching the FX miniseries, "Shogun" and have gotten to episode 4, where "John Blackthorne" is back in Ajiro village and is showing Samurai how to aim long range guns taken from the "Erasmus." Things are ever-so-slightly different from the 1980 miniseries, but at least we have English subtitles for Samurai elocution. "Metatron" is an admirer of all things having to do with armor, weapons, and culture. Here he takes a very deep dive into the current version of "Shogun." Press PLAY if you want to find out if "they got it right," in spite of having to shoot scenes in places other than Japan.

  20. I'd seen this posted on YouTube for a while, but preferred to look at other videos. It's late at night and a Rapper just discovered Billy Joel's "Piano Man," and it's cool rainy night.

Techmoan to the rescue, with a Sony cassette player that spreads "the music all around." Press PLAY if you want to be exposed to Matt's portable Karaoke machine! As usual, the secretary is out to lunch and doesn't know anything about your shenanigans...;)
  25. Our Canadian Chinese movie commentator put up a poll and guess what won. Press PLAY if you want to know what a Meme in Chinese language movies look like.

  27. A Daily Wire correspondent interviews actor/writer/director David Mamet, who has choice things to say about newspaper reviews of his plays and the desire for audiences to hear a story told, not a "Cod Liver Oil" lecture.
