This is (as the link says) hilarious.

First of all the dialøg is Norwee-gån? Which is inherentli fünni?

The Norwegian Premier League teams Sandefjord and Mjøndalen played a game of football using video glasses, receiving live video from a camera above the pitch.

As far as the pie goes, the Earth can easily provide enough pie resources that everyone could have all the oie they wanted. All that would be necessary would be the logistics and the political will to resist the inevitable pushback from the immensely powerful pie-haters lobby.

I'm really liking the new holistic health/essential oils section in our grocery store. No matter how busy every other section is, it's always empty, so you can take a shortcut through there.

Several other 'niche' services have been shut down recently, too. It's like beancounters everywhere are trying to maximize their bottom lines by getting everyone on the same page, consuming all the same bullshit "content." You know Netflix literally uses audience algorithms to order new material? That's why so many of their original series are the same plotlines and formulas recycled over and over with little tweaks as the hook, and that's why they keep taking user control away in the UI--so they can just feed you a constant stream of the same exact thing over and over and over again.

It's garbage and it's boring, and I fucking hate it.

I will have you know that when I fight movie nerds who say that the 21st century is a fillum wasteland, I take them on and win every danged time because some of the best directors, and many of the most promising, are working today, and some of them are tiny little newborn babies.

I do like a lot of older movies, but the main reason I kept Fandor after Filmstruck debuted is that they were curating collections of new movies and up and coming directors that haven't been around long enough for Criterion to notice them.

But anyways, re: my streaming service, I have long had this kind of running thing in my head and a little bit on my computer where I do a 'choose your own adventure' sort of hypertext perpetual movie marathon. So any given movie you could move on to one of two or three other movies that share some sort of common thread. Usually not something super-obvious, but a commonality that flows from one to the next. I wouldn't be specific about WHAT the commonalities were, but it'd give you maybe three options and each would take you in a different direction, depending on the thing they had in common, and then you'd move on from that one and you'd have the same choice, and so on.

And I even started putting it into Twine, but it's like, "Who would ever even look at this besides me and MAYBE my brother?" (just the one brother at that) so I really only did like a page of those.

But if I had a streaming site, that's what it'd be like. Also, it would be 100% illegal.

I have thought about Mubi, and they do have a lot of the movies I like, but I don't think their setup would work for me. They only have 30 movies at a time, so sometimes, I've seen half of them already. Plus I'm kind of fickle. Lots of times, I want to watch something, but I'm not in the mood for it right now. It just seems like it'd be stressful having everything ready to expire like that.
