Me too. I half expected the stinger to be Paul and Jer chasing Matt with his fake beard partially removed and dangling from one side.

Re: LRR on Roku

Look, Master Gunner- I've already stated multiple times that I agree the financial aspect of the Escapist deal is a win. I'm not arguing the point so you don't need to keep harping on it. As for the 'accidental' nature of LRR on the Roku- you may be right. It kind of looks like the people at Blip ar...

Re: LRR on Roku

I'm surprised you've never heard of Roku. Does Netflix not operate in Canada? I knew they didn't initially, but I thought they would have rectified that by now. The Roku devices are absolutely *huge* in the United States. Initially they were only for streaming Netflix movies, but then they signed de...

Re: LRR on Roku

I absolutely agree with you on the "getting paid for it" bit. *That* is great. I'm glad the guys have been able to swing that. Overall, I've got no doubt that this is an *immensely* positive move for the LRR team to make and I'm happy that they're doing it. The only part of it that I meant...

Re: LRR on Roku

The epilogue is being hosted on YouTube but it still shows up on the Blip.tv channel. But, yeah- the Escapist exclusive thing sucks royally. They finally manage to get into the living rooms and TV sets of hundreds of thousands of people and then announce the very next day that they're going to be ex...

LRR on Roku

So I was browsing around on my Roku box after the latest software upgrade and what do I see? A rather familiar blue logo is the second item on the comedy section of the Blip.tv channel. :shock: :D I've got to say, that is *awesome*! For some reason, though, it seems to be a little behind. The most r...

Re: House of the Dead

Secondly, how come after Steve bit the other house-mates they didn't get turned into zombies either? What was the method of spread for this outbreak of zombieness? We could just assume that everybody else was injected with an antivirus before the show so they just died and didn't turn into zombies....

Re: Shows You Watched as a Kid

Most of the ones I remember loving as a kid have already been mentioned, but a few I haven't noticed yet on this thread are Eerie Indiana, Alf and Ghostwriter. One of these days I'll have to go back and watch those to see just how badly my recollection of them is skewed, but I remember them all as a...

Re: Save Our Games

Your videos are always so educational! I never knew that an ass ton was actually smaller than a metric ton. :) Seriously, great job guys. I really liked the way the change-up in audio quality between the music/narration and the interviewees really nailed the feel of that style of documentary. Did th...

Re: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy... book 6?!

I have no idea of the circumstances surrounding the writing of Mostly Harmless and I could be completely wrong, but while reading it I got the strong sense of a man who had been forced to write something he didn't want to. It felt like Adams had been strong-armed into writing yet another Hitchhiker'...

Re: Magicland

Brilliant! Most videos make me smile. A few make me laugh. This one had me laughing loudly multiple times.


Quick question: for some reason, my mind's language center just isn't parsing the end of the ad. What's the very last thing Paul says before the video proper starts?

Dude- can't you tell? They're with *them*! They just want to trick us into taking off our hats so they can finally get to us!

Re: It's All In Your Head

There is no way to measure the "drain". You may very well be right- my knowledge of radio frequency effects is limited to what I learned as a ham radio operator back in high school. Still, it seems like a receiver in close proximity to the person's brain that is kept tuned in sync with a ...

Re: It's All In Your Head

Actually, depending on the shape of the hat, tin foil hats can actually attenuate certain frequencies. And I don't know how you could find out what frequency the device works on without detonating it, so that poses a problem. I'm no explosives expert, but it seems doable to me. Any tuned radio rece...

Re: commodoreHUSTLE 11 - Showdown

All through the early episodes there were times when the pacing seemed off or some of the shots seemed a little hokey but the writing was always strong. With the final episode, you pulled it all together, pacing/fiming/writing/plot resolution. I laughed frequently during past episodes. This episode,...

Re: Point-Counterpoint: GI Joe - The Rise of Cobra

Great vid as always- was surprised to hear this wasn't the first, though. It took me a few minutes to dig up this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bG4oF5NpEM

Which makes me wonder:

1. Are there any others?
2. Why wasn't that one on LRR.com?

Re: Introduce yourselves! (A friendly topic for new members)

Hey all! I finally decided to come out of lurker mode after about 8 months (found out about LRR from Desert Bus). I hope you'll all forgive me for not reading this entire thread before posting in it. ;) I'm a ~30 year old former computer science major turned CNC machinist from Maine, USA. Hobbies in...
