Spoilers, But It’s Not Like You Were Going to Watch This Mess Anyway

Tuesday, May 26, 2015 9:00 pm

I have to admit, that when they started describing the convoluted and ridiculous plot (starting at 2:20), I kept scratching my head and wondering how anyone ever thought this was a good idea.

I Didn’t Know Analog Cameras Had So Many Teeny-Weeny Parts

(Actual repairs start about the 3 minute mark)

[The Fascinating Repairmen. #007 “The Camera”] (Viewer #54,342)

Maybe it was just me, but I kept having to fight a feeling of terror in my gut at the thought of one of those nigh-invisible tiny parts accidentally skittering off the bench and onto the floor. Made me nervous as a tightrope walker.

I’m kinda iffy on their suggestions for using a petroleum distillate near food storage or on your drinkware, but otherwise a lot of these seem like good/useful ideas.

Muppets Series Trailer

Saturday, May 16, 2015 10:00 pm

I assume they’ll screw it up and ruin my childhood, because ABC is run by morons, but as for the trailer, I’m giving a big AMEN to Gonzo’s bit, the intro to which starts 41 seconds in:

He Cut 3 Concentric Steel Cubes Using a Just a Lathe

Saturday, May 16, 2015 3:00 pm

This one’s a very slow boil until it all comes together at the end, so if you don’t have 10 minutes to watch, I understand. But in his defense, he documented it at quickly as he could. Only the first-side’s cutting is real-time, the other 5 are sped up.


[Cube in a cube] (Viewer #915,981)

Personally, I – like Hannibal Smith – love it when a plan comes together, so I found a lot of satisfaction in seeing the project through to the end. I kinda wanted to stand up and cheer that all that careful planning paid off.

I Am Shocked at How Many People My Age Don’t Remember This Movie

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 9:00 pm

It’s weird. Both Star Wars and Star Trek fans shun and ignore this. They treat it like the Star Wars Holiday Special, or Star Trek: The Animated Series, and pretend it never happened.

Personally, I consider it canon in both universes:
