Always hated corningware. I remember some hype about vintage corningware selling for thousands on eBay. Not sure if that's true, but I do have some of the ugly things and would love to make even a few hundred off them.

There's a critic, Katie Stebbins, on Twitter, who calls this phenomenon "intangible sludge," which is what I always think of now. I don't think she's written an actual article, but this one quotes her and then just wholesale lifts the examples she's used, etc. It's not just the darkness that sucks, it's that even brightly lit stuff looks fuckin' brown now.

And have you had trouble lately hearing dialogue? So you turn the volume way up and then every other scene is ear-splitting? That's deliberate too, baby!

You know it, kid, we break that shit out on holidays

I don't think we have a single matching plate for actual daily use

My dad was cleaning out cabinets and found my great-great-grandmothers Pfaltzgraff and he wasn't sure what to do with it so I took half of everything and use it every day. Stoneware, obviously, so not particularly fragile.

Dont' get me started on the sound. It's not just the sound levels, it's a change over the past 2 decades in how actors speak. Especially male actors. They don't enunciate, and they speek in a weird whispter growl. It's uninteligible vocal fry.

Christopher Nolan's movies are the absolute worst at that. Especially the Batman films.

But it's almost all films and TV shows now. This is a great example...

Also, I love the Canadian Show "Cardinal". I am still hoping they do a spin-off series staring the Lise character.

All that and more at the article I linked, but, yeah

Paper Girls: pretty uneven but I enjoyed the highs; I'm gonna give this a solid B with the caveat that it's maybe a C when Mac is not on the screen and A when she is and yes, when she's not around all the other characters should be asking "Where's Mac?"

I read your article on the sound mixing - I was expecting something along the lines of "we want to keep audiences AWAKE" or what have you, but honestly it came down to something more like neglect of the sound team in general while filming, leaving them to just do their best with what they got after filming's wrapped altogether

then there's the other element of standards being ignored in the theaters & probably most importantly (in terms of what we're talking about here) neglecting to actually mix down the surround audio to a stereo mix leading to even more wild dynamics that leave us either turning subtitles on or "riding the fader"

this is a huge problem w/ a lot of podcasts as well but that's not coming out of multi-million dollar fuckin' Hollywood productions

Paper Girls is one of those shows that I think could have been made 20 years ago with the budget and FX you'd have seen back then on Buffy or any one of the syndicated Sci Fi shows... and that would have worked just fine. The premise with time travel and outrageous villians is perfect for that type of low budget TV. In some ways almost better, because it feels more cartoonish, like a comic.

I think the show suffers a bit from not delivering on some of the FX that you'd expect from a big streaming service. That's similar to The Wheel of Time. It looks like a show that isn't quite as good visually (and especially in the writing) as LOTR or GOT. But it might have worked just fine if it looked a bit more like Xena.... but as it is it feels like of like half way between the two.

Thumbs up

I get what you're saying, but it didn't bother me that this wasn't "prestige" tv, and I think there needs to be space between Xena and $100 million-an-episode stuff. Effects, costumes, acting, directing, writing, editing fine, not great. I'm okay with that.

I do feel like I'd love to read an in-depth article on exactly what the fuck happened with that Reagan, though.

this is slightly unrelated but I'm so sick of streaming "prestige tv" - why don't streaming services just understand that I want to watch an old episode of Columbo or NYPD Blue or Knots Landing on demand and yes I realize Tubi exists but that's not good enough

the fact that tv on demand is an expectation for many is p nuts. used to be if you missed an episode, you missed it. and you caught on television whatever happened to be showing at the time. and this is coming from someone who watched a buttload of television as a kid to the point i wrote out a schedule during my summers (price is right at 11, casper at 12, baby huey at 12:30, punky brewster at 1, family ties and facts of life, etc.).

but man, television and t3levision shows are way more serious issues these days. like, people discuss them at work and everything. watched way too many episodes of jeopardy yesterday because it got its own channel on pluto so i still watch the tube, but i did suggest to tim not to get one in the first place

Said this after watching the Death/guy who can't die episode, which turns out to be as good as it gets (and I did think it was pretty good). At first I liked learning that Morpheus is just this pompous, bureaucratic windbag and all the other gods act like totally normal people, but I was almost immediately like, "Yeah, I hate this fuckin' guy" and, as little as I cared about everyone in the whole stupid vortex story, I actually got annoyed every time he, the main character, showed up. Not great!

I did some extra work over three days down in Charleston a few weeks ago for season 3. I had no lines and anticipate a total of maybe 10 seconds of screen time but I guess you could say I'm a pretty big deal. The cast and crew were all pretty coll.

i saw a guy i used to work with (and went on one date with--to church and brunch lol) on some real-crime show where he played a boyfriend who hurt his girlfriend in reenactments. i asked him about it and he was a little embarrassed. that's the biggest star i've ever known
