The Devil At Your Heels (1981)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RA5WCpFY0PE

 

Year 1 (75)

We meet Ken Carter, a 37 year old Canadian cut-rate Evil Kneivel breaking his ankle, again, jumping a shitty car at a shitty race track.

He wants to jump a car, a mile, across the St. Laurence Seaway from Canada to the US in a rocket car.

Aim for the roses, not the trees, cows, or wooden navigation aids.

All he has is a 30K yet car that can’t make it and no sponsors.

Detour to his childhood Montreal slum, left school in the 4th grade at age 14!?, and we see the groundwork in his inferiority complex.

Oh god, his replacement driver doesn’t even have his own, lets call it a crash helmet. But hey, lets fire up the yet car while its still on the truck! Do we ever see that jet car off the truck? NO!

 

Year 2 (76)

Sports and business manager acquired, money problems solved. ABC is in for a quarter of a million dollars.

50 acres are cleared just for the audience.Too bad it seems to rain a fuck ton in Morrisburg. Everything is behind. The ramp will refinished.

Mean whiling Chicago the designer braintrust duo areon the job. They created the Blue Flame Special world faster car, at that time.

The car? a Lincoln Continental. Surely not the most aerodynamic choice.

The training? getting flown in a biplane doing loops which Ken Carter could not really handle. 16 days to go.

ABC is worried, so they send noted racist and violent felon Evil Kneivel to check on things. Rain won’t hurt, but wind will. They will get the ramp ready (they will not)

Evil also thinks this is dangerous and you better have people to get you out of the water. They do not get the Kneivel sign of approval.

But, Ken will have oxygen and frogmen, not to mention the car will float.

 

More training. Ken finally gets in a rocket car…but oddly not his own rocket car. What ever happened to it?

Does Ken bring a helmet or safety gear? Oh fuck no. Has he ever gone faster than 90 miles per hour? Fuck no.

Ken comically squeezes into a safety suit that you really don’t need. But, because of it he can’t fit in the car, so off it comes. Jeans, a t-shirt, and bread bag booties it is.

Now Ken is ready, almost 250MPH. Ken has to be going 280 when he takes off.

4 days to go. Road isn’t ready, car still in Chicago with too many unknown factors. They will not sign off on the car. Ken Carter is sick to his stomach. The jump is off. Knievel called it suicidal.

 

Year 3 (77)

A new crew! The jump is on with a new manager and backers. All Canadian!

 

That’s some quality Montreal engineering! Will it be ready? No way.

 

The car is in Montreal. They just need to put on the wings and fuel tanks. Why wings? Stability. STABILITY! The car absolutely will make the jump!

 

Oh no. Tom and Dave blew up the front of the car. That’s why they tested it. They replaced the tank.

Oh no. The ramp doesn’t fit. The engineer has no time for interviews. All the equipment keeps getting bogged down in the mud.

 

Tom and Dave also blew up the tank again. They will make the tank themselves this time. it blew up too. They gave up and went back to Chicago. The jump is off.

 

Year 4 (78)

Does ken live in Florida? Fuck yes he does. It’s where he makes fake phone calls on camera about being the first civilian astronaut.

 

Ken explains his dual personality.

 

They finally managed to get a tank that won’t explode.

We meet Slamming Sammy Moore.. who crashes the car because the wings…generated lift. Maybe there are design problems, luckily this was only minor damage maybe caused by a crosswind.

No backers, no money, no jump.

 

Year 5 (79)

Ken won’t sell tickets, to dangerous, the backers will only film it.

Sammy lies to Ken about the thrust. And I think he is really mad and trying to cover.

 

The big jump at last!

The lead up road is VERY bumpy, but the backers are out of money and upping the pressure.

Ken is mad. No white line

 

It’s only bumpy because he was off the power!

 

No jump, a secret deal has the backers pulling their support and crew. No one showed up!

Ken is staying until the car jumps…this week…then Ken leaves.

 

2 weeks later, Ken is faking footage for the new Hollywood backers and we meet Kenny Powers, friend and stunt driver.

Kenny fucking Powers people.

 

Jump day. But the jump has to go in secret. We meet Jim Deist, car specialist, and Dar Robinson, stunt man who jumped off the CN tower.

 

Dar notices the wind is going the wrong direction.

 

The crew goes on strike for more money.

Ken explains how dangerous everything is to the firemen.

 

Money arrives, 5pm, time to go.

Rescue boats are ready.

 

6:45 Kenny in the car, they have to jump between boats.

 

And we have an abort…but everything is under control.

Sammy freaked out, the tank vented, a valve broke. No jump today. 5 minutes later it is dark, the rescue boats have no search lights.

 

7 days later.

The weather is bad, no ground crew 2 boats and a barge are replaced by 2 guys in a dingy. No firemen, just a tow truck and a bored kid. Less than 50 people.

Ken is in the car, but keeps doing checks, until it rains. But rain wasn’t a problem earlier.

The jump is off.

 

2 days later.

Kenny mother fucking Powers has the support of the backers.

 

KENNY POWERS is ready to go. Too badge forgot his special back brace.

It’s a race against time and Ken Carter finding out!

Kenny wants to GO!

 

AND IT GOES. It disintegrates and falls into the water so close to shore everyone just wades out.

 

Kenny Powers is fucked up, even more so than his wives ‘eyebrows’

 

And here is where Gio cuts in the Gordon Pinset narrated failure sequence. Bumps lead to the body breaking, which kind of made everything explode. And the wings? They ripped right off.

 

This is the best documentary about failure.

 

A year later? Ken is still going to jump the car a mile.

 

Nope, he dies 3 years later when his car lands upside down in a shallow lake in Peterborough.

 

Lady and Gentlemen you better just have watched The Devil at your Heels!

Green Lantern (2011)

Extended Cut

 

[From Wikipedia]

Green Lantern is a 2011 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, and Tim Robbins, with Martin Campbell directing a script by Greg Berlanti and comic book writers Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, which was subsequently rewritten by Michael Goldenberg.[1] The film tells the story of Hal Jordan, a test pilot who is selected to become the first human member of the Green Lantern Corps. Hal is given a ring that grants him superpowers, and must confront Parallax, who threatens to upset the balance of power in the universe.

 

Plot

Billions of years ago, beings called the Guardians of the Universe used the green essence of willpower to create an intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps. They divided the universe into 3600 sectors, with one Green Lantern per sector. One such Green Lantern, Abin Sur of Sector 2814, defeated the malevolent being Parallax and imprisoned him in the Lost Sector on the desolate planet Ryut. In the present day, Parallax escapes from his prison after becoming strengthened by an encounter with crash survivors on the planet, feeding on their fear to gain strength before pursuing and nearly killing Abin Sur, who escapes and crash-lands on Earth where he commands his power ring to find a worthy successor.

 

Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot working at Ferris Aircraft, is chosen by the ring and transported to the crash site, where the dying Abin Sur appoints him a Green Lantern, telling him to take the lantern and speak the oath. At home he says the oath and is later whisked away to the Green Lantern Corps home planet of Oa, where he meets and trains with veteran Corps members Tomar-Re and Kilowog and Corps leader Sinestro, who believes he is unfit and fearful. Jordan quits and returns to Earth, keeping the power ring and lantern.

 

Meanwhile, scientist Hector Hammond is summoned by his father, Senator Robert Hammond, to a secret government facility to perform an autopsy on Abin Sur’s body, under the watchful eye of Amanda Waller. A piece of Parallax inside the corpse enters Hammond, giving him telepathic and telekinetic powers at the cost of his sanity. After discovering that he was chosen for the secret work only due to his father’s influence, Hammond attempts to kill his father by telekinetically sabotaging his helicopter at a party. Jordan saves the senator and the party guests, including his childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris. Later, back at the government facility, Hammond uses telekenisis to successfully kill his father by burning him alive. Hammond also slams Waller into a glass window high above the floor. As she’s falling, Jordan saves the injured Waller by creating a pool of water which wisks her away out of further danger. During the encounter Jordan learns of Parallax coming to Earth.

 

Back on Oa, the Guardians tell Sinestro that Parallax was once one of their own until he desired to control the yellow essence of fear, only to become corrupted by fear itself. Arguing that the way to fight fear is by fear itself, Sinestro requests that the Guardians forge a ring of the same yellow power, preparing to concede Earth’s destruction to Parallax in order to protect Oa. Jordan appears and tries to convince the Guardians that fear will turn the users evil if its power is used, but they reject his pleas, and he returns to Earth to try to defeat Parallax alone feeling defeated.

 

Upon returning to Earth as the Lantern, Jordan saves Ferris from Hammond after a brief showdown with him. Parallax arrives, consumes Hammond’s life force, killing him and then wreaks havoc on Coast City. After a fierce battle, with new-found strength, Jordan lures Parallax away from Earth and toward the Sun, destroying and killing Parallax. He loses consciousness after the battle and falls toward the sun, but is saved by Sinestro, Kilowog, and Tomar-Re. Later, the entire Green Lantern Corps congratulates him for his bravery. Sinestro tells Jordan he now bears the responsibility of protecting his sector as a Green Lantern.

 

In a mid-credits scene, Sinestro steals the yellow ring and places it on his finger, causing his green suit and eyes to turn yellow.

[From IMDB]

Plot

In 2057, the sun is dying and the Earth is freezing. A ship named Icarus I, has been sent with a massive stellar bomb intended to reignite the sun, failed on its missions seven years ago for reasons unknown. A crew of eight pilot a colossal nuclear bomb aboard the spaceship Icarus II in a final attempt, as all of the Earth’s fissile materials have been mined for the bomb. As they slingshot past Mercury, Icarus II discovers the distress beacon of Icarus I, the first ship to attempt their mission, which disappeared seven years earlier. Reasoning that two bombs have a better chance of success than one, physicist Capa recommends Captain Kaneda change course and commandeer Icarus I. Mace, the ship’s engineer, opposes the deviation as risky. Navigator Trey calculates a trajectory to intercept Icarus I, but forgets to realign the shields that protect the ship from the sun, causing damage to four shield panels.

 

Kaneda and Capa embark on a spacewalk to make repairs, assisted by Pilot Cassie, who angles the damaged portion of the shield away from the sun. The angle however allows the sun to destroy the ship’s oxygen garden and oxygen reserves. As Icarus II’s autopilot returns the shield to its original alignment, Kaneda orders Capa to safety and repairs the last panel, moments before he’s immolated. Trey blames himself for the loss of Kaneda, and psychiatrist Searle assesses him as a suicide risk, sedating him.

 

Icarus II docks with Icarus I. Capa, Searle, Mace, and former communications officer now-Captain Harvey search the vessel, leaving Cassie and botanist Corazon on board Icarus II. They discover Icarus I’s mainframe has been sabotaged, making its bomb delivery impossible. In the ship’s log is a rambling message from Captain Pinbacker, who abandoned his mission. The crew of Icarus I is found charred to death in the solar observation room, where they were long ago exposed to the un-shielded sun. Suddenly, the two ships explosively decouple, destroying Icarus I’s outer airlock, stranding the four crew members on it. Mace suggests one crew member stay behind to manually operate the airlock while the other three jettison between airlocks, using the vacuum release for propulsion. Searle volunteers to stay behind. Capa is sealed in the only space suit, while Harvey and Mace wrap themselves in salvaged insulation material. Searle releases the airlock and the three crew members rocket into space. Harvey misses the airlock and freezes to death, while Capa and Mace make it back to Icarus II. Searle, having spent the entirety of the mission obsessed with looking into the sun, voluntarily exposes himself to its full, deadly force in the observation room.

 

Corazon calculates that there is enough oxygen left for four of the five survivors to reach the sun. After a contentious vote, Mace decides to kill Trey, but discovers Trey to have already committed suicide. Capa learns of a stowaway on-board and discovers an insane and disfigured Pinbacker. Pinbacker attacks Capa and locks him in an airlock. He then kills Corazon, and removes the mainframe from its coolant bath, shutting down the computer. Pinbacker pursues Cassie, who flees into the bomb payload.

 

Mace attempts to manually lower the computer back into the freezing coolant, but when his leg catches on the descending computer he becomes trapped, and the computer disabled. As he freezes to death, he radios Capa to escape the airlock, decouple the bomb from the ship, and activate it as it plummets into the sun, delivering the payload to its destination. Capa blows the airlock, separates the bomb from the ship, which explodes, and enters the payload, where he finds Cassie. Pinbacker ambushes them, telling them God ordered him to send all humanity to Heaven. As they hurtle into the sun, Capa escapes Pinbacker while Cassie dies, reaching the bomb controls. Not sure if it will work under these extreme conditions, he watches as the bomb begins to successfully ignite, at the edge of the sun itself.

 

Back on Earth, on the frozen Sydney Harbour, Capa’s sister and her children witness the sun returning to its full power, implying the success of the mission.

PODGODZ 245

Podgodz 245: It was bigger than Star Wars!

Recorded 30 May 2017

Battlestar Galactica (1978 AKA Saga of a Star World AKA Episodes 1 to3)

Lax pulled one deep from his emotional archive. Battlestar Galactica 1978 Theatrical Release.

What do you get when you grab a handful of Mormonism, Ancient Aliens, and Star Wars and smoosh it altogether? The beige paste known as Battle Star Galactica. Surely the most expensive TV show made at the time. This shit was meant to be huge, but NOT a TV series,but rather a run of made for TV movies, 7-11 hours in total for 3 to 5 airings.

 

And now that you will have watched this movie, you have seen ALL special effects shots used for the entire run of 22 episodes.

 

Because the production was so costly, it was decided to release these first three broadcast hours as a theatrical movie in the Summer of 1978 in Canada and Europe and then the following year in the United States.

 

Star Wars had just rocked the world, this was the first ‘knock off’. There was a lawsuit from George Lucas, early advertising touted the participation of John Dykstra as the creator of the effects of StarWars.

 

The second made for TV movie was to be Lost Planet of the Gods and then Gun on Ice Planet Zero and I would presume the  two other two parters, The Living Legend, and War of the Gods.

 

The switch to a series lead to many bad episodes, stretching the meagre remaining budget and falling back on old tropes (and Universal back lot sets) that included castles and cowboys. It also lead to Jane Seymour

 

In this Battle Star, unlike the more recent remake, they actually had black people, but no Asians.

 

You have no idea how BIG this was to a little 5 year old Lax Dude.

 

This show is also to blame for NCIS and a whole string of shitty TV,which I would dare say includes Galactica 2004, or at least about half of it.

Synopsis

 

Battlestar Galactica is set in a distant star system, in an age described as “the seventh millennium of time.” Twelve colonies of humans, living on different worlds, have been fighting a 1,000 year war against the robotic race of Cylons, who seek to exterminate all of humanity. The Cylons have unexpectedly sued for peace, through the diplomatic agency of a human, Count Baltar. The human leaders, called the Council of the Twelve (with one representative from each colony), and the commanders of their military fleet are all too pleased by the Cylon offer of peace, which ends so many years of warfare. The powerful “Battlestars” are assembled for armistice talks with Humanity’s age-old robotic enemy. But it’s all a deception – Baltar has betrayed humanity for personal gain, and the Cylons have no intention of making peace.

 

Only Commander Adama, of the battlestar Galactica, suspects that the Cylons are planning a trap, and orders a recon patrol, consisting of his two best pilots: his eldest son, Apollo, and Lt. Starbuck. Adama’s younger son, Zac, convinces Starbuck to let him go in his place. The patrol discovers a vast Cylon armada waiting in ambush behind a moon named Cimtar, but the Cylons jam their communications. Cylon fighters pursue the two Vipers, and Zac’s fighter is hit. This forces Apollo to leave him behind, so that the fleet can be warned. Zac’s Viper is destroyed by the Cylons just before he reaches the fleet.

 

Baltar manipulates President Adar into prohibiting the launch of fighters as the Cylons close in on the fleet. Frustrated, Adama orders the Galactica’s Viper squadrons be placed on full alert, with their fighters ready to launch. As the Cylons attack, the Galactica is able to launch its fighters first, while the other battlestars are caught off-guard. The Atlantia, with President Adar aboard, is destroyed, as are apparently the other battlestars; Galactica alone survives the Cylon assault. Apollo informs Adama that the Cylons were accompanied by refueling tankers, and Adama realizes that this would allow the fighters to operate far from their base ships (known as “basestars”), which must be operating somewhere else. He orders the Galactica to withdraw and protect the planet Caprica, Adama’s homeworld, but they are too late, as the Cylon fleet has launched simultaneous massive assaults on all the Colonies at the very same time the attack on the battlestars has commenced.

 

With the Colonies in ruins, Adama collects as many survivors as possible, and orders every intact civilian ship to take survivors and follow the Galactica. They hope that the Galactica can protect this ragtag fleet long enough to find the legendary thirteenth human colony. It is called Earth, but the location of this lost colony is known only to the last lord of Kobol, the planet which was the original home of Man, but which was abandoned thousands of years earlier, when the Thirteen Tribes migrated to the stars. Helping Adama in the quest for Earth are his son, Captain Apollo, commander of the Galactica’s strike wing; Lieutenant Starbuck, the Galactica’s best fighter pilot and Apollo’s best friend; Lieutenant Boomer; and Colonel Tigh, Adama’s second-in-command.

 

The Cylon Imperious Leader, determined that no human at all shall survive, orders Baltar’s execution after his usefulness is over, but (as retro-actively revealed in the TV series version of the film) he is spared at the last moment in order to help the Cylons hunt down the human fleet. After initially escaping the Cylons across a massive starfield called the Nova of Madagon (referred to as such due to its extremely dangerous, hot environment, and Cylon mines), the Galactica and the fugitive fleet find brief respite on the resort planet of Carillon, where they hope to find food and fuel for their journey. As much of the fleet’s food supplies were contaminated by pluton bombs during the Cylon attack, the fleet is in desperate straits, and must find a food source soon or face starvation.

 

It quickly becomes apparent that there is more to Carillon than meets the eye. The fact that Carillon has more than enough food and fuel for the fleet’s needs makes Adama wary. It is also apparently the largest tylium (fighter fuel) mining facility in that part of the galaxy, as well as a popular gamblers’ den, but nobody has ever heard of the place. Adama discovers that Baltar was responsible for performing the initial Carillon survey, and reported that tylium was too minimal for mining, and he immediately smells a Cylon trap.

 

But in the meantime, Sire Uri, Adama’s self-serving nemesis on the new Council of the Twelve, uses the opportunity the planet presents for the morale of the fugitives to make his move against Adama, whose strict but selflessly benign intentions hinder his own ambitions. The Council of the Twelve, led by Uri to believe the Cylons have been left far behind, propose that the humans pause to celebrate their escape and dismantle their military and weapons to prove to the Cylons that humans are no longer a threat to them. The Council arranges a banquet on Carillon, and orders all fighter pilots to attend. Adama suspects that this might be a golden opportunity for the Cylons to launch an attack on their fleet, and orders Colonel Tigh to surreptitiously hold back their fighter pilots from attending the party while he is to outfit noncombat personnel with fighter uniforms.

 

Down on Carillon, Apollo and Starbuck gradually discover that something is amiss when they see strangers walking around clad in the uniforms of their squadron, and after some investigation they discover the truth behind the planet’s prosperity. The natives of Carillon, the insectoid Ovions, have set up the gambling resort to lure humans to them to serve as living food for their hatching larvae in their underground chambers. They are also secretly in league with the Cylons and mine the tylium solely for their purposes in exchange for their freedom, and they are cooperating in the Cylons’ efforts to eradicate the human fugitives. During a subsequent fight with Cylon soldiers, the laser fire from both parties sets the tylium mines on fire, threatening to destroy the planet once the fire rages fully out of control.

 

Adama’s ruse works, and the Cylons, believing that all of the pilots are at the banquet, launch a fighter attack against the Galactica in orbit, but Adama is ready to spring his trap. Once the Cylon fighter contingent is fully engaged with the Galactica, Adama recalls all his Vipers from the surface of Carillon, taking the enemy by surprise. During the fight, Apollo realizes the Cylon fighters couldn’t have come so far without a basestar, and he and Starbuck disengage from the battle and find a Cylon basestar hidden on the far side of Carillon. In defiance of Commander Adama’s recall order, they decide to attempt to destroy it, in order to enable the refugee fleet to elude pursuit, and use fake radio chatter to fool the basestar into thinking it’s under attack by multiple Viper squadrons. The basestar descends into Carillon’s atmosphere to avoid detection, and is destroyed when the planet finally erupts in a massive tylium explosion. Despite their victory, however, the humans realize their enemies will still be pursuing them, and they set out to Earth, their last hope for survival.

PODGODZ 243

Podgodz 243: Gio gets punched in his muppets.

Recorded 16 May 2017

Gio picked Farscape, a show that he likes and maybe gets good eventually. Did he start Lax out where it starts getting good? NOPE! Swim that river of shit!

In two episodes time Gio has a decision to make. Pain now or pain later.

 

From Wikipedia

Farscape is an Australian-American science fiction television series, produced originally for the Nine Network. The series was conceived by Rockne S. O’Bannon and produced by The Jim Henson Company and Hallmark Entertainment. The Jim Henson Company was responsible for the various alien make-up and prosthetics, and two regular characters (the animatronic puppets Rygel and Pilot) are entirely Creature Shop creations.

Although the series was planned for five seasons, it was abruptly cancelled after production had ended on its fourth season, ending the series on a cliffhanger. Co-producer Brian Henson later secured the rights to Farscape, paving the way for a three-hour miniseries to wrap up the cliffhanger, titled Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, which Henson directed. In 2007, it was announced that the creator was returning for a web-series but production has been repeatedly delayed. A comic book miniseries was released in December 2008 that was in continuity with both the series and the hoped-for webisodes.

In February 2014 it was reported that a screenplay for a new Farscape movie was in development. At WonderCon 2014, Rockne S. O’Bannon confirmed to Nerdacy. that a Farscape movie is in development but in very early stages.

 

Season One

Earth astronaut John Crichton is unexpectedly hurled to an unknown part of the Milky Way galaxy via a wormhole. He is dropped into the middle of an escape attempt by Moya, a living spaceship, from the militaristic Peacekeepers, who had been using it as a prison transport. In the chaos he has an accidental collision with a Peacekeeper fighter, resulting in the death of its pilot. Although the escape is successful, the Peacekeeper Captain, Bialar Crais, fixates on Crichton as the murderer of the pilot – his brother – and begins a campaign to chase Crichton down.

The various crew have no common goal, each only wishing to go home. Unfortunately to avoid Crais’s pursuit they have to travel into the Uncharted Territories, and thus have no idea how to get home. The other crew also have little respect for Crichton, seeing him only as a “primitive hoo-man” who does not understand even the basic tenets of life in space.

Various episodes explore the characters’ back stories. Aeryn begins to learn that the Peacekeepers are not always as correct as she had believed. Zhaan is forced to bring up the dark side she had worked to suppress. D’Argo admits he was framed for his wife’s murder and has no idea where his child is. Rygel confronts his former jail keeper and torturer. And Moya herself becomes pregnant after a Peacekeeper experiment is accidentally activated.

Meanwhile, Crichton continues to research the wormhole that brought him here. He is forced to sell what little progress he has made to an alien mechanic as payment for repairs on the Farscape module

 

Going in production order, not airing order..

 

 

Episode 1: Premier

Present day human John Crichton is unexpectedly sucked through a wormhole and flung to “…some distant part of the universe on a ship, a living ship, full of strange alien life forms”, where he becomes trapped with a group of escaped prisoners after he accidentally kills a local law enforcer.

 

Lax: Not a good start, what’s his name from Galactica 80 still hasn’t learned to act, the show looks cheap and like it they randomly cut out large sections of the show where maybe they explained things.

 

 

Episode 2: I, E.T. (#4)

A Peacekeeper beacon goes off and Moya has to land on an alien planet to prevent its signal being intercepted and Moya being discovered. Crichton, D’Argo and Aeryn leave Moya and explore the planet in search of a substance that can be used to numb Moya’s senses so the beacon can be removed but Crichton gets separated from the group and meets up with some inhabitants of the planet who hide him from the authorities.

 

Lax: No wonder they delayed this one, not good. Not good.

 

Episode 3: Exodus from Genesis (#5)

Moya is invaded by spawning space bugs, which produce clones of the crew. To complicate matters, a Peacekeeper retrieval squad arrives and Aeryn begins to suffer heat delirium.

 

Lax: Heat delirium? Really?.

 

Episode 4: Throne for a Loss (#2)

Rygel’s plot to appear regal backfires when he, along with a much needed part of Moya’s propulsion system, are snatched by Tavlecs who possess drug-dispensing power gauntlets.

 

Lax: Not a horrible one, which was justifiably moved up in airing.

 

Episode 5: Back and Back and Back to the Future (#3)

The crew comes across a ship that is molecularly de-stabilizing. D’Argo makes everyone bring the ship’s escape pod aboard when he discovers that the ship’s passengers are Ilanics, long-time allies of the Luxans. Aboard the escape pod, Crichton gets a shock and starts experiencing strange visions of the future, first of himself and one of the Ilanics, then of Moya’s destruction.

 

Lax: Probably the best of these eleven episodes, still horrible acting and out of no where twists and little to no explanation of what the fuck is happening and why.

 

Episode 6: Thank God It’s Friday

D’Argo, after threatening the crew with Luxan hyper-rage, is later found docile and happy on a planet and decides to stay. Crichton discovers that the planet’s food contains a drug, with the help of a small band of rebels immune to its effects, and must determine a way to convince the others of the truth and the true nature of the drug.

 

Lax: Not horrible

 

Episode 7: PK Tech Girl

The hulk of the legendary Peacekeeper ship, the Zelbinion, holds a pleasant surprise for Crichton, but Rygel must confront the time spent on the ship where he was tortured by the sadistic commander Captain Durka, while the crew work to reactivate the ship’s shields to defend themselves from an attack.

 

Lax: Of course they just happen upon a Peacekeeper ship that the muppet was of course imprisioned in.

 

Episode 8: That Old Black Magic

On a commerce planet, Crichton finds himself lured into an alternate reality controlled by Maldis, a being who feeds off negative energy. He is pitted against Crais in a fight to the death, leaving Zhaan to tap into her old darkness to try to help him.

 

Lax: Good idea, cheaply done, poorly acted.

 

Episode 9: DNA Mad Scientist

In exchange for samples of their DNA, a genetic scientist offers the Moyans star charts to reach their respective homeworlds, but his demands become too extreme when he takes one of Pilot’s arms and his experiments result in Aeryn mutating into a Pilot hybrid.

 

Lax: Where the fuck did this come from? Fuck them. When a hack writer all of a sudden writes a body horror episodes that comes from nowhere you really have to wonder if anyone has any idea what the fuck is going on.

 

Episode 10: They’ve Got a Secret

While inspecting access shafts D’Argo is flushed into space. The DRDs turn on the crew and Moya cuts off life support, while the crew attempts to find the cause from a revived but delusional D’Argo.

 

Lax: So, that’s what space pregnancy is like?

 

Episode 11: Till the Blood Runs Clear

After creating a wormhole Crichton’s module is repaired on a nearby planet by Furlow, while Vorcarian Blood Trackers Rorf and Rorg attempt to collect the Peacekeeper bounty placed on their heads.

 

Lax: So he records his super-important information on a fucking cassette tape?

 

 

So many stupid things about his show. What the fuck is treble bitch about? Why have they not airlocked the muppet? What didn’t pilot kill them all. or for that matter Moya? She doesn’t need them. Word can go fuck himself, tall people can’t act. His makeup is bad. Really bad.

 

I was at least expecting space boobs but this aired, at least in Canada, on YTV – think Nickelodeon.

 

Gio now has an option. Take his punishment now (Star Cops 1987 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWWFwLWJZEc&list=PL5nu0EE47YsMSaI7NPCzqLFfChR6nUaU9 ) or wait and instead watch Battlestar Galactica (1978 Theatrical)

Podgodz 241: The Second Best New Show of 2016: People of Earth

Recorded 2 May 2017

A second in a row pick by Lax…for reasons. Gio was supposed to pick away at watching this on a tablet during his move while not dodging characters from the Road Warrior trying to kill him with flying dildos. That didn’t work, again, for reasons.

 

In two episodes time, who the hell knows when that will be, Gio will pick something horrible for the next TWO episodes of us Watching Shit. I bet it’s muppet related.

It Is, It’s Farscape and LAX already hates it, look out!

PODGODZ 239

Podgodz 239: A stake to the heart of my childhood

Recorded 4 April 2017

G.I. Joe: The Movie. Not that one. Not that one either. The 1987 animated movie.

 

From Wikipedia

G.I. Joe: The Movie is a 1987 animated film spin-off from the animated series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, based on the original Hasbro toyline.[2] It was produced by Sunbow Productions and Marvel Productions and was animated in Japan by Toei Animation.

Created at the height of the G.I. Joe craze in the 1980s, G.I. Joe: The Movie was intended as a theatrical release to be closely followed by The Transformers: The Movie. However, the G.I. Joe film encountered unexpected production delays which allowed the Transformers feature to be released first. Due to the poor box office performances of The Transformers: The Movie and My Little Pony: The Movie, G.I. Joe: The Movie was instead released direct-to-video as well as aired on television in syndication, first in feature length format and later split into a five-part miniseries format as part of the show’s syndication package.

While Cobra Commander and Serpentor blame each other’s leadership of Cobra as the root cause of the organization’s failures, Pythona, a woman from the secret civilization of Cobra-La, infiltrates the Terror Drome. While there, she reveals to Serpentor that Cobra-La was responsible for planting the idea in Doctor Mindbender’s mind to create Serpentor. At her urging, Serpentor plans to capture G.I. Joe’s latest weapon—the Broadcast Energy Transmitter (B.E.T.).

Cobra assaults the Joes as they test the B.E.T. in the Himalayas. The Joes use the B.E.T. to activate their automated weapons systems. Serpentor is captured and Cobra Commander orders a retreat. Cobra Commander leads his troops into Cobra-La.

 

As the Joes celebrate their victory, a new group of rookie Joes are brought onto the team, including the unlucky kunoichi Jinx, military police officer Law and his dog Order, former basketball player Big Lob, EOD specialist Tunnel Rat, covert operative Chuckles, and Duke’s reckless half-brother, the green beret Lt. Falcon.

In Cobra-La, the Joe forces are ambushed and detained within the Lovecraftian living environment. The Cobra soldiers are met by the civilization’s ruler, Golobulus, who has Pythona and his other henchman, Nemesis Enforcer, arrest Cobra Commander. While there, Cobra learns about their history: 40,000 years ago, Cobra-La was an ancient civilization that ruled Earth. However, the Ice Age, the evolution of humans and their development of scientific technology resulted in Cobra-La’s survivors being forced into caverns within the Himalayas. Cobra-La rebuilt their society in secret as centuries passed. Golobulus vowed to destroy humanity so that his people could re-claim the earth. He eventually discovered a nobleman who was working on biological weapons. The nobleman later became Cobra Commander, charged with conquering the world for Cobra-La. However, Cobra Commander’s repeated failures caused Golobulus to use a Psychic Motivator on Mindbender to create Serpentor.

 

Meanwhile, Falcon takes his girlfriend to G. I. Joe headquarters. His girlfriend is really Zarana in disguise, and her visit was a ruse to infiltrate Serpentor’s holding cell. For abandoning his training, Duke puts Falcon on guard duty until he says otherwise. After Falcon abandons his post to flirt with Jinx, the Dreadnoks and the Nemesis Enforcer free Serpentor, injuring Alpine, Bazooka, and Gung-Ho in the process. General Hawk is furious with Falcon for abandoning his post and confines him to his quarters until court-martial.

In Cobra-La, Cobra Commander is tried for his repeated failures, and Golobulus reveals his plans to launch spore pods, filled with mutative spores into space and use the B.E.T. to hatch them. The spores will cause mankind to devolve into mindless beasts, allowing Cobra-La to reclaim the earth. Golobulus punishes Cobra Commander by exposing him to the spores, which transforms Cobra Commander into a snake. He flees and makes his way to the Joes’ camp with Roadblock.

 

Convinced by Duke to spare Falcon a harsh punishment, General Hawk reassigns Falcon to the “Slaughter House” where he is to be retrained by Sgt. Slaughter and his “Renegades” consisting of ex-Viper Mercer, former football player Red Dog, and former acrobat Taurus. On a weaponless recon mission in the Terror Drome, the five learn of Cobra’s plans and that the Baroness has discovered the location of the B.E.T. As Falcon and the others destroy the Terror Drome, Cobra launches an assault on the Joes. The Joes launch a counterattack on Cobra, but the B.E.T. is stolen. Serpentor attempts to kill Falcon with one of his snake spears, but Duke jumps in front of Falcon at the last minute. The spear hits Duke, knocking him into a coma.

Falcon, the Renegades and the new recruits head to the Himalayas to stop Cobra-La. The other Joes are led to Cobra-La’s lair by Cobra Commander. The new recruits prove themselves valuable soldiers as the Joes rescue their captured teammates. Falcon, Jinx and Sgt. Slaughter confront Golobulus, Pythona, and Serpentor. The ensuing fight culminates in Jinx and Slaughter sending Pythona and the Nemesis Enforcer falling to their apparent demise. Finally, Falcon sends Serpentor out of Cobra-La and reconfigures the B.E.T. to incinerate the spore pods in space. The B.E.T. overloads, destroying Cobra-La as Golobulus escapes. Immediately following the battle, the strike team receives news that Duke has come out of his coma and is recovering.

PODGODZ 235

Podgodz 235: AOL Keyword Josie and the Pussycats

Recorded 7 March 2017

 

Snow in March? Why the F not

 

Josie and the Pussycats (2001) written and directed by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont staring Racheal Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, Tara Reid, Alan Cummings, and Parker Posey.

 

A tragically mismarketed movie that flopped at the box office that I found in the most curious of ways. It’s also only 98 fucking minutes long, so Gio has to watch it TWICE

 

So I found this movie from the soundtrack, in a round about way, that did better than the movie. The disc I got was mailed from my sister in England who picked it up from the BBC WS Gramophone library disposal bin. I listened to it and really liked it. I kept listening to it so eventually figured I should rent the movie from Rogers Video, after all I had one of those coupons for something like 10 week-long rentals for $5.

 

Turns out I loved the movie. I remember it being marketed as a movie for screamy boy and girl band enthusiasts. At the time I would have still been listening to Alt rock, I was not a fan of boy bands.

 

Off all the things in the movie, it’s the fashion that doesn’t hold up. Everything is shiny and I don’t remember everyone always wearing lucite platform stripper shoes nor do I remember seeing those tops that end up being completely backless being that common outside of TV and was it just me, or was every pair of pants just above pubic level?

 

The music does hold up well. It was produced by Babyface Edmonds who decided to craft a real band. On vocals and guitar was Kay Hanley of Letters from Cleo, her then husband and bandmate Michael Eisenstein also has writing credits so also likely was a member. Big Naked seems to have been on as a performer, so probably backup vocals and also guitar. Other credits go to Matthew Sweet,  Adam Duritz (Counting Crows), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne) and even Jane Weidlin of the GoGos. The voices of DuJour are J’Son Thomas and John Stephan.

 

One thing that has now been lost to the whim of the internet, there was an IMDB discussion of the DuJour song Backdoor Lover, of course being completely about anal sex and one or two people arguing that it totally was not, just about someone sneaking in through your back door, it isn’t a sin and it doesn’t make me gay. Oddly, the other song Around the World is also a then obscure porn term for getting your ass eaten – which was not so common then. We are talking premo Bankok brothel level.

 

I would say the cast is great, the acting is great, the music is great, the script is good. The direction is mostly great, some of the stylized parts don’t hold up and that maybe had the budget been a little bigger they could have beefed it up a little to remove a little bit of the filler which might not be the best thing to say about a 90 minute movie.

 

The Story

Squabbling boy band DuJour (Breckin Meyer, Seth Green, Donald Faison, and  Alexander Martin) has discovered something so horrible that the record company executive Wyatt , Alan Cumming, has to kill them. The hunt for a replacement finds him in Riverdale almost running over the titular Pussycats.

 

We are introduced to their weird manager Alexander, Paul Costanzo, and sister Alexandra, Missi Pyle and Alan M, Gabriel Mann, as Josie’s erstwhile romancing interest. They get taken to the big city, meet insane record executive Fiona, Parker Posey, who is secretly inserting subliminal messages to control and extract the whim of teenagers on behalf of industry and the government since the 50s. When acts become trouble they tragically die, overdose, or find god.

 

The Pussycats become Josie and the Pussycats. The band breaks up then makes up just in time for the concert at the end, being saved by an unseen force, breaking the gears of the machine.

 

The Problem

The movie skewers consumer culture and the ever changing whims of teenagers – yet that is who they marketed to.

 

 

 

 

In Two weeks time, episode 237, Gio and Lax watch shit will probably be something horrible from Gio.

How did Lax manage? At 15 minutes I paused to see how long. ONLY 15 MINUTES.  At an hour I picked up my phone and cleared twitter, which lasted to 1h40 when I wan out of twitter so decided to make ramen. Sapporo Ichiban spicy, super spiced with sriracha and soy sauce because I needed a weeks worth of sodium, and a little dish of almonds.

Then it was back to the show, 20 minutes later I was back on twitter, then on IMDB and Wikipedia reading about the movie and novel, which sounds much better.

3 fucking hours, not helped by someone getting a cyrillic captioned movie, so any text or foreign language? A Mystery!

 

From Wikipedia

 

Pacific Islands, 1849

Adam Ewing, an American lawyer, has come to the Chatham Islands to conclude a business arrangement with Reverend Horrox and his father-in-law. In Horrox’s plantation, he witnesses the whipping of a Moriori slave, Autua, who later stows away on the ship. Autua confronts Ewing and convinces him to advocate for Autua to join the crew as a free man. Dr Henry Goose slowly poisons Ewing, claiming it is the cure for a parasitic worm, to steal Ewing’s valuables. As Goose administers the fatal dose, Autua saves Ewing. Returning to the United States, Ewing and his wife Tilda denounce her father’s complicity in slavery and leave to join the abolition movement.

 

Cambridge/Edinburgh, 1936

Robert Frobisher, a young English composer, finds work as an amanuensis to aging composer Vyvyan Ayrs, allowing Frobisher the time and inspiration to compose his own masterpiece, “The Cloud Atlas Sextet”. Frobisher begins reading Ewing’s journal, which he has found with the latter portion missing, among the books at Ayrs’s mansion. Ayrs demands credit for “The Cloud Atlas Sextet” and threatens to expose Frobisher’s homosexuality if he refuses. Frobisher shoots Ayrs and flees to a hotel, where he uses the name Ewing. He finishes “The Cloud Atlas Sextet” and commits suicide with a gun just before his lover Rufus Sixsmith arrives.

 

San Francisco, 1973

Journalist Luisa Rey meets an older Rufus Sixsmith, now a nuclear physicist. Sixsmith tips off Rey to a conspiracy regarding the safety of a new nuclear reactor run by Lloyd Hooks, but is killed by Hooks’s hitman, Bill Smoke, before he can give her a report that proves it. Rey finds Frobisher’s letters to Sixsmith and tracks down a vinyl recording of Frobisher’s “Cloud Atlas Sextet”. Isaac Sachs, another scientist at the power plant, passes her a copy of Sixsmith’s report. Smoke kills Sachs by blowing up his plane and runs Rey’s car off a bridge. She escapes but the report is destroyed. With help from the plant’s head of security, Joe Napier, Rey evades another attempt on her life, which results in Smoke’s death. With another copy of the report obtained from Sixsmith’s niece, she exposes the plot to use a nuclear accident for the benefit of oil company executives, who are indicted as a result.

 

London, 2012

Sixty-five-year-old publisher Timothy Cavendish reaps a windfall when Dermot Hoggins, the gangster author of Knuckle Sandwich, murders a critic who gave the novel a harsh review, generating huge sales. When Hoggins’s brothers threaten Cavendish’s life for Hoggins’s share of the profits, Cavendish asks for help from his wealthy brother, Denholme, who tells him to hide at Aurora House. On the way there, Cavendish reads a manuscript of a novel based on Luisa Rey’s story, and recalls his relationship with a woman named Ursula. He visits the house where she lived with her parents and discovers that she still lives there. Believing Aurora House is a hotel, Timothy signs papers “voluntarily” committing himself; in fact, Aurora House is a nursing home (in Ayrs’s old mansion). Denholme reveals to Timothy that he sent him there as revenge for Timothy’s affair with Denholme’s wife Georgette. The head nurse, Noakes, is abusive, and contact with the outside world is denied. Cavendish escapes with three other residents. He resumes his relationship with Ursula and writes a screenplay of his experience.

 

Neo Seoul, 2144

Sonmi-451 is a “fabricant”, a human cloned for slave labor, living as a server at a fast food restaurant in a dystopian South Korea. She is exposed to ideas of rebellion by another fabricant and friend, Yoona-939. After witnessing Yoona being killed for rebelling, Sonmi is rescued from captivity by Commander Hae-Joo Chang, a rebel. He exposes Sonmi to the larger world, including the banned writings of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and a film version of Timothy Cavendish’s “ghastly ordeal”. They are found and Sonmi is captured. Hae-Joo rescues her, introduces her to the leader of the rebel movement, and shows her that clones are not freed at the end of their contract but killed and recycled into food for other clones. Sonmi makes a public broadcast of her story and manifesto. The authorities intervene to halt the broadcast; Hae-Joo is killed in the firefight and Sonmi is recaptured. After recounting her story to an archivist, she is executed.

 

Big Isle (Hawaii), 106 winters after the Fall (2321)

Zachry Bailey lives in a primitive post-apocalyptic society called the Valley on the Big Island of Hawaii.[13] The Valley tribesmen worship Sonmi-451; their sacred text is taken from the broadcast of her manifesto. Zachry is plagued by visions of a demonic figure called Old Georgie, who urges him to give in to his fears. Zachry, his brother-in-law Adam, and his nephew are attacked by the cannibalistic Kona tribe. Zachry runs into hiding and his companions are murdered. His village is visited by Meronym, a member of the Prescients, an advanced society using the last remnants of high technology. Meronym’s mission is to find a remote communication station on Mauna Sol and send a message to Earth’s off-world colonies. Catkin, Zachry’s niece, falls sick, and in exchange for saving her, Zachry agrees to guide Meronym to the station, where Meronym reveals the true story of Sonmi-451. Returning, Zachry finds his tribe slaughtered by the Kona. He kills the sleeping Kona chief and rescues Catkin, and Meronym saves them both from the returning Kona and is in turn saved by Zachry. Zachry and Catkin join Meronym and the Prescients as their ship leaves Big Island.

S1E5: I’m Fat and Proud, 2 March 1998

S1E6: Killed by Cat Food, 9 March 1998

 

A show about an agoraphobic man, Curtis ( Don McKellar), who is obsessed with television, particularly an evening trash talk TV show, The Rex Riley Show (Bruce McCulloch). The only outside influence are the room mates that filter into his life when his long time room mate Nathan (Daniel MacIvor) is arrested for killing a gay homeless man (Al Waxman) with an impromptu cudgel of cat food, the cheap kind. The first, and continuing, room mate is none other than Nathan’s girlfriend Hope (Molly Parker) but others are in the mix from local convince stop clerk Newbie (Callum Keith Rennie) a cat lady, and even psychoactive cookies.

 

Twitch City strikes me as a more competent, and Canadian, version of Clerks, but one by someone competent and in colour. I found the show on Canadian basic cable channel Show Case, at a time when it would actually show good movies at weird times, and since the internet was this new thing you could go online and find the schedule a month in advance…with descriptions which you could print out at work and highlight what you wanted to record, on to tape, for watching later at a more convenient time. It was the future, and it was amazing. But hey, I had just stopped living in a closet.

 

Episode 1: Failure to comply with the Job Wheel, has left Lucky the cat hungry. Curtis won’t go out, so Nathan has to get provisions, just a few minutes after his girlfriend moves in. On the way back, with the cheap cat food because that’s what they sell in convince stores, he is accosted by a homeless man, and ends up clubbing him to death with a sack of cat food. While Nathan is being arrested, Curtis starts making moves on Hope and then turns the Job Wheel into a “For Rent” sign after he finds out about the murder charges.

 

Episode 2: Hope is busy seeing to Nathan’s legal defense and Curtis is busy renting out his bedroom and moving his good stereo into his room. The new roommate? Psychoactive pineapple almond cookies that totally don’t contain drugs! Hope is forced into the guest room, which may or may not be a closet, and also has to pay rent – especially after her improvements. Hope is the MPDG of your dreams and the search for a new room mate will continues as the cookies decided to leave.

 

Episode 3: The new room mate is a crazy cat lady, and is played by Don McKellar’s late wife, who only eats the meat out of microwave dinners…or does she? Hope is finally starting to realize that Curtis doesn’t really do all that much, his job is basically taking out the garbage and renting out the room…to a crazy lady who is sings Christmas carols. Cat lady bonds with Lucky until things go bad, and disappears. Hope is told that Curtis never leaves the house, but it doesn’t sink in by Newbie, the convenience store clerk who gives expired food and stripped magazines to Curtis. The Cat lady decompensates, then disappears leaving only a foul smelling cooler that is taped shut and smells like death, always lurking in the corner. Hope finally realizes that Curtis never leaves the apartment, but is distracted when he honks her boob which unlocks her heart. Curtis is out of jail, and comes home just in time to block the consummation and is almost killed by a falling cooler of TV dinner remains.

 

Episode 4: Jail changes a man but Nathan is released and living with his girlfriend in her closet room, Curtis is his nemesis – but he is letting go, because having another body on him probably wouldn’t be good until the first one is resolved. The new roommate is a Punjabi engineering student kept on track by Curtis, Hope keeps trying to find a way to let Nathan down while having awkward moments with Curtis, who really needs them to pay more money now that it is a double occupancy. While the student is out, his room is rented as a band practice room, and with all the lawerin’ going on Curtis moves into the attic until Nathan goes to back to jail as there is now a witness and a motive. Curtis and Hope share a moment and the search for a new room mate starts anew.

 

Episode 5: Hope connects with Newbie, and finds out he met Curtis in first year of university, and is now their new room mate, plus he has a job. He’s the kind of guy who moves all his belonging in garbage bags. Hope starts working at the convenience store, now with music. Curtis watches TV to learn from it, not laugh at it, Newbie might be the opposite. Curtis tries to leave, but can’t, Newbie might be taking his place. In a battle of the TV remote, Curtis wins until Craig makes a shot form outside, which Curtis can’t challenge. In the battle of the TV Week, Molly cheats for Curtis, which when revealed brings them closer but drive Craig out.

 

Episode 6: To deflect his lack of going out, Curtis asks Hope to move in with him while Nathan gets the opportunity to be on the Rex Reilly show. It is revealed that the victim of the Cat Food Killer was gay, which clearly is the motivation. We then cut to Hope returning from the taping, signed book and mug in hand. hope is none to happy that both rooms have now been rented, which was totally not why he asked her to move in with him. On the show, Nathan rages out and threatens Curtis to camera. The new frat bro room mates are not to his liking, he goes to his room to eat some magic cookies before the cat addresses him, he is in the need off a kick in the ass, it is time to fly and drink from the bowl of wisdom. He gay panics the room mates out, gets his shoes and goes to visit Hope at her remote gas station kiosk to let her know the room mates are moving out, maybe he’ll see her tonight and see her he does, they make out while the national anthem plays and the show comes to an end, Curtis of course taking a peek at the screen.

 

The Canadian Connection, the homeless man is Al Waxman who was Canadian Famous for playing the King of Kensington, which was kind of like Canada’s multicultural All in the Family? Nathan’s mother was also played by the wife of the King. The guy buying cat food in Episode 6, Hugh Dillon, was at that point in the band The Headstones, and is now more known as an actor in shitty Canadian productions.

 

This show hit me at an odd time in my life, just jumping into being a real adult and I think I really wanted to go back to living in a closet where I could just watch TV, no relationships, not getting stabbed, not having to move forward. This show fucking connected to me in a deep way. It was one of the few TV series I actually kept on VHS, I’m sure I have it somewhere with my Star Wars box sets. It also deeply affected Ken Reid, who might have taken the show a little more to heart as a blueprint. If you know him, he has a couple of lending copies. His contact information and purchase links are in the show notes.

 

Season 2 is comprised of 7 episodes and aired in 2000.

Winter TOP TIP: wear a toque (i.e. a wool hat, a beanie, a watch cap) when you sleep in the cold, it’s so nice.

It snowed in Vancouver. FREAKOUT! It’s going to snow Thursday. DOUBLE FREAKOUT.

Putting off fixing my Jeep ruined my day because I didn’t take the death car, but at least now I know what is wrong with it.

Found out my old mechanic is dead and the place was sold to people that seem to not be mechanics or speak english and are no longer Volkswagen specialists with is a long story.

Another challenger appears – Laughable app, for following specific comedians across multiple shows There is no way to monetize this without 1) selling new ads against other people’s shows, 2) Being completely fucking evil. From listener Jason.

Also from listener Jason, he asks “Usually I listen to podcasts in the order they are released in my feed. Podgodz is one of the few exceptions to this rule. I tend to listen to it as soon as the posts.”

I have been scoping out Windows based computers, because I want one that won’t suck and require ALL the adapters. – LAX
