I'm especially disappointed with this weeks Studio 60. "What America will be talking about" my buttcheeks.

The only thing I'm talking about today is how the show had a lot of potential and is now running itself into the ground. I actually enjoyed the show when it started. Now I just want to see Matt & Harriet kill each other slowly with blunt instruments.

Oh well, come March we'll never see the show again. Good jorb, Sorkin.

Atirracs: How it's Made is the best show on earth, when there isn't anything else on to watch.

It suffers from a couple problems:
1) It never gives enough time to any one item, so you don't get a good idea how it is actually made, and
2) They usually focus on crap- who wants to see about Longaberger?

Or is that "Made in America?" Those two shows are kind of duplicates of one another, just different hosts.

G4 can suck my wet arsehole. ZDTV was great, but just a wee bit too nerdy. TechTV was really fairly awesome. They canned a few of the big dorks, hired some hotties (or gave them shows to co-host... Mmm... Morgan...)

Then along comes G4. They fire most of the good people (LEO!!!!), cancel most of the good shows, start up a bunch of retarded shows and start showing crappy re-runs, and finally turn the last couple decent shows into piles of filth (Enough with the freaking skits on X-Play, and I don't care how funny that one sound clip from the game is, try not to play it 30 times in one 2-minute review.)

I can see how you might originally think that this would work but there are a few shows which air at the same time on different channels that have fans of both (24 and Heroes comes to mind). In this age of Tivo there are many who would have to shun this just to avoid spoilers in shows that can be heavy on surprise plot twists.

I could see it working far a few shows that have no time conflicts though.

I think American Dad is funnier. The guy who does both had to segment the humor of Family Guy to try to make the shows a distinct entity and I think that American Dad got the good stuff, not to mention that the underlying premise (CIA agent, housemom, alien, hippy kid, nerd kid and a psycho goldfish) makes for less need to find convoluted ways to get the characters into wacky situations.

And the Critic isn't worth 1/100 the opening of the Simpsons.

Hmmmmm. SockMonkeyHolocaust, you're the first person I've heard of that prefers AD to FG. I don't mind it, but FG is one of the few shows that causes me to consider intentionally watching TV at a certain time.
AD gets watched as a side-effect of that -as does King of the Hill.

Jesus Camp - Terrifying.
Altered - Not so much.

‘’ 2007-02-16 02:32:56 PM  
DirecTV or Dish?

Depends on what channels you want, whether you want hi-def, whether you want a PVR. There's a reason there's an assload of plans out there :)

Way back 10 years ago I picked Dish over DirecTV because they had Comedy Central on their cheapest plan where DirecTV had it only in their middle tier, so Dish was cheaper for what I wanted then.

Last year when I was looking for HD stuff, Dish had more HD content than DirecTV. All the HD stuff on both systems is moving to MPEG4 to save bandwidth and Dish had shipping MPEG4 hardware already. Some of their newer HD channels already required it. So that's what I went with (DishHD Silver package).

Both situations have probably changed since I looked at it.

DirecTV has better PVR's though. DirecTV has Tivo, Dish has a poor workalike of it. It's better than it was though; the first standard-def Dish PVR I had was *really* bad feature-wise, and the hard drive crashed 3 months out of warranty (not surprisingly, it was a Maxtor drive, but that's a rant for the Fark Tech Forum, not here...) :) Their HD PVR's are *much* better. Still not a Tivo but getting there.

Drew has a DirectTV Tivo setup and uses the hell out of it, but he doesn't have a hi-def TV yet.

Both of them, plus every land-based digital cable system, are going to have nasty MPEG compression artifacts because they all overcompress the shiat out of things. Some people complain about one vs the other because of this. I seriously believe they're ALL equally sucky. Some of them try to compensate with filters to blur edges to make it less obvious but that just trades one distortion for another.

Thanks. The only other real compare/contrasts I can find anywhere are "Whichever one has the best deal at the time" and "DirecTV has better sports packages".

I probably shouldn't watch that much TV anyway.

What about Futurama?
It was much better than The Critic and actually comes from the same guy as The Simpsons.

The Futurama episode with Fry's dog has always stuck with me. I can't think of any other tv show that ended like that. The first time I saw it I hated it, it's just so sad and not right. But after I've seen it a couple more times I've grown to appreciate it, mostly because it doesn't paint a rosy picture. I just feel so bad for the poor dog. He's sitting on the curb, waiting for Fry to show up, while in the future Fry thinks the dog forgot about him. It still gets me.

It took me a while to warm up to it, but now I think it was consistently better on average than the Simpsons.

I just literally spit out a tiny bit of my Sprite while I was browsing imdb and saw a banner ad for Open Water 2. Yougottabefarkingkiddingme....
 
‘’ 2007-02-17 12:48:42 PM  
re: Futurama. My TiVo started recording it and I started watching it and have been enjoying it thoroughly. Much better than the Simpsons are now. I just think Simpsons is past its "Best by" date and that they're milking the cash cow.

I think American Dad is funnier.

Meh. I tried very hard last night to view it (Black History Month, peanut butter episode) with a more open mind, but it still fell way short of the FG episode.
I guess it could have been an especially weak AD ep., I thought the FG (Peter is a bully, Stewie gets a tan) was pretty uninspired as well. There were some really hilarious parts of the FG though, not so much with the AD.
I actually enjoyed King of the Hill (Bill's family barbecue recipe) as much over all as the Family Guy, and quite a bit more than the American Dad.
The new Simpsons (7,14,21, etc. Up style documentary) was of a quality rarely seen of late, it was the best of the bunch.

Drink her shmaza from a shell
San Francisco show and tell
Well I should know, by, now, that its just a spell
like a Sunday in PJ
that its cheap but its not free
and Im not what I used to be
and that loves not a game for me

Babylon sister shake it, babylon sister shake it
so fine, so young, tell me im the only one
here comes those santa ana winds again

my friends they no go for that cotton candy
son your playin with fire
the kid will live and learn
as he watches his bridges burn
from the audtiorium

babylon sisters, shake it, babylon sisters, shake it
so fine, so young, tell me im the only one


youve got to shake it baby, youve got to shake it baby, youve got to shake it...

----

bury the bottle momma, its grapefruit wine
kick off your high heel sneakers, its party time
the girls dont seem to care
whats on
as long as they play till dawn
nothing but blues and elvis
and somebody elses favorite song
give us some funked up music
she treats you nice
feed us some hungry regaee
shell love you twice
the girls dont seem to care tonight
as long as the mood is right
no static, no static at all
heavy , no static at all

Give us some funked up music, she treats you nice
Feed us some hungry regaee she'll love you twice

i saw you at rudys
you were very high
you wer ehigh
it was a crying discrace
they saw your face
on the counter
by your keys
was a book of numbers
and your remedies
one of these
surely will screen out the sorrow
but where are you tomorrow

i cant cry anymore while you run around
while you run around
break away,
just when it seem sso clear
that its over now
drink your big black cow
and get out of here

down the green street
there you go
looking so outrageous
and trhey tell you so
you should know
how all the pros play the game
you change your name
like a gangster
on the run
you will stagger home
to your precious one
im the one
who must make everything right
talk it out till daylight

i dont care anymore
how you run around
how you run around
break away
just when it seems so clear
that its ove rnow
drink your big black cow

The greatest bubble gum album I've ever heard. Danger Mouse is the future of hip hop, which makes him the future of pop, but it seems that most of the stuff I've heard doesn't have a lot of staying power. I predict that he will produce the next epic hip hop record.

House
24
Monk
Boston Legal
ER
Without A Trace
Studio 60
Grey's Anatomy


Of those, Studio 60 is (undeservedly, IMHO) on the brink of cancellation, while ER probably should have been euthanized long ago, though I still watch it for some strange reason.

Every time I look at this thread I feel sorry for it. I feel this indescribable need to make that scroll bar on the side of my screen smaller. So I fill the space. To fill space today I'm going to write about music I enjoy, maybe you enjoy it as well, maybe you don't. Maybe you've never listened to it before, if not, I'd recommend giving it a listen.

Morphine-A band that I'm listening to constantly. Too bad the lead singer died. I think they've got a unique style, sometimes upbeat, sometimes not so upbeat, kind of sexy. "I Know You (Part III)", "Thursday", "Top Floor, Bottom Buzzer", and "Super Sex", are all great, and there's a bunch more. Some of their songs are pretty depressing ("In Spite of Me" comes to mind) but that's all right.

Soul Coughing-Another unique band, but probably better known than Morphine. Most of their stuff is pretty random, which I think is what really draws me in. There's one that I have no idea where I got it from called "Coffee Song" that is strange as hell but cool. "So Far, I Have Not Found the Science", "Blue Eyed Devil", "Disseminated", and "The Incumbent", are all excellent lesser known tunes, and of course "Rolling", "Circles", and "Super Bon Bon".

311-They catch a lot of shiat, but nevertheless, I think they're great. In my opinion "Soundsystem", "Grassroots", and "Music" are their best albums.

The Beastie Boys-Slipping a little in their old age (at least judging by "To the Five Burrows"), but still cool. "Sabotage" still kicks ass, "Paul's Boutique", almost 20 years old, remains to be outstanding. "Licensed to Ill" is a classic party album. Who can resist "Girls" and "Brass Monkey"? Not me, that's for sure.

Ok, I'm getting tired of typing, and we all know no one reads a post with a bunch of text anyway (I realize that means no one has made it to this point), so here's a few more, but no more long descriptions. Bad Religion, Rancid (and Operation Ivy before them), and NoFX are all great old school punk bands that have interesting views and kick ass songs, the whiny emo guys could learn a thing or two from them. On that note (the whiny emo guys)I also really dig Weezer. Tool, NIN, The Bloodhound Gang, Ice Cube, Nirvana, and Less Than Jake are all on my must have list. I could continue on, but I think that's enough about my musical tastes for now. I think I've filled enough space.

Could you imagine how tiring it must be to hang out with Sonic Youth? I posit that it must be extremely exhausting, like you would go to get on the bus and then Thurston would get on the bus in a totally awesome way that is expanding the definition of getting on the bus and it wouldn't be a bus, it would be a rickshaw.

Kim Gordon and the others would kinda' look on and be bored.

Talking with them would be kind of annoying, because you'd have to get used to them talking about their everyday friends in the way that namedroppers talk about their famous friends except, you know, Thurston knew Lungleg when everyone called her "Liz". At least you'd be spared them saying something like, "I was talking to Nick Cave, lead singer of the Bad Seeds and..." because they are Sonic Youth, of course they know Nick Cave. Why would they have to point out that they know him?

Also, I'd like to point out that Foetus/Jim Thirwell is a master of genres but man, oh man do his vocals and lyrics suck.

To keep up on my theme from my last post, I just started listening to Pepper, I think they're from Hawaii, they sound like Sublime, only a little more of a reggae sound, and a little less rap. I kept hearing "No Control" on Sirius and had to check them out (it sounds different than most their other stuff, I found out, but not in a bad way). I think they have a few albums, I just picked up 2 of their most recent, "No Shame" and "Kona Town". If you've never heard them before I'd recommend checking them out, excellent summer tunes.

A couple years back there was a website going around that would let you put in an artist's name or song title, and it would pick something similar to the genre and play it for you. It was random what you'd get - rarely do you get exactly what you asked for - and mostly only referenced (from what I remember) publically popular songs and singles, but not entirely. Its purpose was to show the user other artists in the genre that the user may not be familiar with or get exposed to ordinarily.

I'd like to use this to expand my own music collection; however, I do not remember the name of the website at all. I figure this would be a good place to see if someone knew what I was talking about.

So, anyone know what I am referring to, and perhaps have a link to it, if it still exists?

Big Black's cover version of Kraftwerk's "The Model" is far superior to Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine's version of the same. Both top any band's take on the long version of Don MacLean's "American Pie" or any cover ever done by a ska band.

"An Open letter to NYC" is one of my favorites on that album, also "Hey fark You", in fact I like pretty much the whole album, just not as much as their previous efforts. Also, thanks for the Pandora link, interesting site.

SockMonkeyHolocaust:Both top any band's take on the long version of Don MacLean's "American Pie" or any cover ever done by a ska band.

1)Does that include Madonna's version of "American Pie"? Cuz that was a musical masterpiece.

Eh, I like ska. I just don't think that the late 90s Third Wave was all that good of a chapter in the history of the evolution of the ska/punk genre with the huge influx of 80s covers being a particular low point.

That Musicovery seems interesting, but I can't seem to get it to play anything even remotely "power metal." Also, of the genres that I am familiar that it has, it seems I recognize nearly every artist they offer. It just doesn't seem as complete or broad as Pandora.
 
‘’ 2007-03-31 09:41:45 PM  
Pandora definitely has an edge as far as customization; it's nice to be able build your own "stations". Musicovery seems built around its (somewhat gimmicky) multi-colored interface. I like it because it does have a nice selection of classical music which, IIRC, is the one genre Pandora does not cover.
 
‘’ 2007-03-31 09:51:05 PM  
Oh yeah, original soundtracks too. The Pandora FAQ says they're working on classical and soundtracks but they don't have a firm date on they'll be made available.

You can get Empire Earth as a download for $20 if you're into RTS.

Otherwise, hit up your local Staples and rock their $10 bin.

Bluebook:

Alpha Centauri* and its expansion, Alien Crossfire. Also has a relatively vibrant mod community through various Civ-themed fansites. This is a turn-based civilization sim (though set on another world). Similarly, Age of Empires II should be cheap; I liked that particular iteration a lot more than AoEIII and the Star Wars themed version.

Freelancer, a space sim using the mouse for movement/firing rather than a keyboard. It has a fairly linear campaign, but you get the best ship at the end and so there's not much else to do except explore. There is a mod community and internet play for it. There are also other various -lancer games with similar gameplay, though I can't name them for you all.

Diablo/Diablo II are good, easy ways to waste time.

*You may need to download patches to get AC to run properly on WinXP, but I'm sure you can find them on the Firaxis website. Also, I get told that my CPU is not supported by the game, and that crashes are possible, but they're pretty rare. Maybe once per 50 hours (and they may not even be related to the CPU), and the game will autosave each turn by default.

Not sure, but this season ended with Whiny Skinny Chick, Token Black Dude, and Aussie Brown-Noser all either quitting or getting fired. Actually, I like their characters, but I get the feeling that House may be one of those shows that burns brightly for a few years, then jumps the shark very suddenly. This may the writers' attempt to preemptively stoke the fires. As for the actors, I haven't heard any rumors, but Omar Epps could probably get a series of his own if he wanted it.

I finally just saw the last episode, and dropped back in here to say: Now I understand what you were talking about! Thanks for the heads up!

Agree about the show in general; it's gotten quite a rep for predictability and pretty much used up its shock value. (How many testicles can you explode or eyeballs can you pop before it's just a yawn, after all?)

I also agree about Epps; strong character, good delivery, but he doesn't seem to have much in development right now.

I thoroughly enjoy Hugh Laurie's work - he's long shown he's got comedy well-covered, and this brought his dramatic capabilities to the attention of a lot of American households. As good as the show has been been for him, I can't help but think he might find it a pleasant break to get that stone out of his shoe and talk in his "real voice" if only as successful a vehicle could be found for him.

House M.D. stole the ratings for Fox, apparently, with their finale, so perhaps another season can be wrung out. It'll be interesting to see where they take it.
