    Dick Van Dyke Show - 2 Colorized Episodes Coming to CBS 12/11

    Aww man! I missed it. Not that I'm particularly excited about colorized episodes but we've been working our way through the series. My teenage son loves vintage tv so I started DVRing MeTV's Sunday night DVD show airings during the pandemic. He absolutely loves them. It would have been fun to...

    Logitech bows out of the Harmony Universal Remote market

    I just happened to be reading an article on WIRED today and noticed the announcement in a sidebar. I love my Harmony One but it's getting pretty beaten up and I've been debating getting a newer remote for the last couple years - and as recently as last night. With a FLIRC adapter the thing can...

    Favorite YouTube Video

    Came across this today. If there's anyone who is going to appreciate it, it's us. A Korean a capella group sings studio logos.

    The mystery of the disappearing gas

    Definitely not a problem with the hoses. They look great when I pulled one to drain the tank so I wouldn't lose any more gas. It's no older than 15 years, probably closer to 13. We lived in a warmer climate prior to that. I used to run the machine dry but I see mixed comments on if this should...

    The mystery of the disappearing gas

    There's definitely a leak. It started right up this morning, but pretty quickly started to sputter. I put more gas in it and for some reason it wouldn't start. I thought maybe I flooded it so I let it sit a couple hours. I just went back to it and the tank is empty. There's a puddle underneath...

    The mystery of the disappearing gas

    That's what I was thinking as well, that maybe the cap wasn't on tight enough, but I'm quite sure it was. Let's say it wasn't - would the gas evaporate that fast?

    The mystery of the disappearing gas

    Hey all - I'm a bit baffled by something, and you lot are a knowledgeable group so I put the question to you. Maybe someone has some thoughts. To avoid an unnecessary wall of text, here are some factoids: - Around Nov 15th I pulled the snow blower out of storage. - It already had some gas...

    Letterkenny

    Letterkenny is great fun. I discovered it during quarantine and had to stop watching it because I was blowing through it so fast. It's silly and will change the way you talk for a few days. I love it when they needed a joke, wrote 30, then just use them all.

    I've got a new dog!

    Mike - I saw this and immediately thought of you. (I'm changing the code color so it doesn't look messy. Not sure how to make it work right) More info here. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This is August. She was born on April 24, 2000. That’s right, she just turned...

    What annoys you?

    Our new dishwasher. Our kitchen is wide open to our living room. Our old dishwasher was fairly loud and made tv watching difficult. So when it was time for a new one I insisted on paying extra for the quietest one they had. I absolutely love it. The only time you hear it running is when it's...

    What annoys you?

    This drives me nuts. Why aren't they doing it themselves?! One house in particular has random bits of garbage on their lawn since late last year! A sock. A plastic keychain. Cardboard packaging from a frozen dinner. Not a LOT of stuff but enough where I think 'you drag out the garbage to the...

    Pet Shop Boys appreciation thread

    Because watching a 1925 silent film about the first Russian revolution sounds like a boring thing to watch I made a new trailer for the Pet Shop Boys version. I find the film exciting with three action sequences that are pushed to their limits by the pulsating PSB score. Trailer for Pet Shop...

    Pet Shop Boys appreciation thread

    It's not a very good movie, but it is a classic piece of 80's-ism. Annoyingly, I had just completed ripping my laserdisc for adding to my Plex library about a week prior to the bluray announcement. :huh: Amazon UK says they aren't sending this to the States. I'm wondering if that will change...

    Pet Shop Boys appreciation thread

    In 2005 PSB released a new soundtrack to the silent film Battleship Potemkin. Unfortunately they never released the film with the soundtrack, only the CD. Worse, the CD was edited on the first couple of tracks so in order to properly watch it you had to start the film about 15 minutes in. I...

    Mr. Robot: The Final Season

    Finally binged the final season over the holiday. Love this show and there were some great episodes this season. Without spoiling anything, the second have of the 3rd to last, and penultimate episode were a bit odd. It's all explained in the finale, but while watching it it seemed completely out...

    Euphoria (HBO)

    Ok,it wasn't just me then. I felt that fact was very subtly shown. There's a scene where Rue and Jules were laying in bed and Jules was in her underwear and I thought "...is that...?" and I was distracted for the next episode or two trying to determine if she was transsexual. I'm glad they...

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    They clearly do not show footage of every single thing that happens. We've known some players hook up on the island, for example. Tribal Councils are known to take close to three hours. Just because it isn't shown or discussed on screen doesn't mean it didn't happen. That should be obvious...

    "Fry's Electronics" - what's going on with this store?

    Amazon Returns: It's super easy now to return stuff at Amazon. I bought an electronics piece that didn't work as I had hoped. All I had to do was package the item, slap on the return label, and drop it off at the Kohl's Department Store about a mile away from my house. No cost. Fry's: Man, I...

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    So, several of the women experienced Dan's handsy-ness but weren't bothered enough to make a big deal out of it. That's fine. But another woman was bothered enough. For those women to use that as a tool to manipulate her seems to me like a special kind of evil. I expected that to be more of an...

    Silicon Valley - Final Season (HBO)

    Yeah, I know. I watched E01 and E02 back to back; couldn't get to it sooner. That's the joke that immediately came to mind.

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    there's little I can say that's not already been mentioned, but I will say the only thing I'm enjoying about Rob and Sandra is their commentary during the tribal councils.

    The Walking Dead - The Final Episodes (Seasons 10 & 11)

    I agree that TWD has gotten tedious. They take soooo long to tell a story. I'm ok with the concept for occasional seasons (ie: following specific characters for the same 24 hour period each episode) but they've just fallen into this long form storytelling to drag a short story on for longer than...

    Survivor: Season 39: Island of the Idols

    There is a general Survivor thread now. :) We're dedicated Survivor fans in our house. I'm not sure I care about this Season's theme. I think it's going to take up too much of the show's time and it's going to get annoying. For example, the first player was given a choice of getting immunity...

    Fear the Walking Dead Season 5

    I've not yet watched this half of the season, but Yes to this. How is she keeping her camera charged and acquiring all the tapes? It's a character device that grew old on me quickly. Plus, who cuts their hair like that after the end of the world? It's completely impractical.

    Euphoria (HBO)

    These days I find myself saving up shows (not necessarily on purpose) and watching the entire season over the course of a week. I just don't have the time to invest in a series (especially when there are multiple series to watch) and I quickly fall behind. It's easier for me to find one show...

    What annoys you?

    Heh. Since getting my current car with a rear camera I prefer backing into spaces. I don't have depth perception so I never know how close I am to kissing the bumper or concrete wall when pulling front first into a parking space. With the rear camera I can clearly see the parking lines and the...

    Survivor Season 37 and beyond

    Right. A big failure of the concept I realized later was the jury isn't allowed to communicate with the survivors. But here comes Chris saying "oh, the jury is leaning on Victoria to win" and that just torpedoes any chance she has in staying. That shouldn't be allowed. [EDIT] typos
