Yeah, it was the best app by far, especially the ridiculously accurate precipitation notifications. I tried Carrot Weather for the last year, which uses the Dark Sky API, but apparently the developer makes more money off the iOS version and hasn’t updated the Android version in ages. Which seems like a mistake, given… Read more
Wild that Harry Melling, of all the people in Harry Potter, is the one arguably doing the biggest work (I’m aware Radcliffe and Felton do more interesting work, and neither need money from big budget stuff). I really enjoyed him in The Old Guard and Queens Gambit. Maybe he has a Netflix contract or something.
He uses the Oticon More’s. I don’t know if it’s something you can easily “gift,” as they’re $2,700. My dad got them through insurance.
From their introductory podcast, it sounds like Jeff and Red Ventures wanted to really branch out (and potentially become less....all white men), and Vinnie, Alex, etc didn’t really want to have to do whatever the corporate paymasters wanted at any given time.
The wayback machine has quite a few logged versions of the AVclub, but you kinda have to know what you’re looking for: https://web.archive.org/web/20060614220620/http://www.avclub.com/content/home
Well, AVClub started in the 90s as a non-joke subsection of the Onion, which was an independent site, like IO9 and Deadspin. AVClub used to have a much larger, more consistent staff and much larger range of content (people like Keith Phipps, Scott Tobias, Tasha Robinson, Genevieve Koski, Nathan Rabin, Amelie Gillette,… Read more
Agreed. I do not think there will be another voice like Bourdain’s for many, many years.
Grimes has done a remarkable job building up her career as an incredibly thoughtful, groundbreaking solo artist, and an even more remarkable job disabusing us of that notion in less than 2 years. And her last album was just awful.
Well, it’s been 700 years since APOLLO, more than enough time to diversify languages, let alone accents. However, I kind of view HZD’s language like Nier’s - I think all the characters are speaking some totally different language (presumably APOLLO’s designers would have come up with a much simpler unified language… Read more
I don’t think Jay-Z is this gaudy. It’s definitely someone TRYING to be like Jay-Z, though. Definitely a middle aged white guy.
The fact that the owner’s favorite champagne is Armand de Brignac (whose oldest vintage is like, 2008 - it’s the Cristal of the aughts) suggests that they are new money that probably just said “uh, ok” to every suggestion Rolls Royce made.
Yes, this is a major sticking point in union negotiations. If the actor/actress is kept in the dark as far as what game they’re going to be auditioning for, they have much less leverage to ask for higher pay. They know the company hiring them, but like, if you were auditioning for Square Enix, you don’t know if you’re… Read more
