Re: The Good Place

Just watched the season 2 finale of The Good Place. It offered up... not another twist exactly, but certainly an exciting turn, which bodes well for season 3. Assuming the writing and acting stay at the quality level we've seen (and I don't see why they wouldn't) I'm very very excited for season 3.

Wow, I'm kind of glad I didn't get it together to submit for this one. There are some heavy hitters in this fight.

Re: Top Scientists: Pop Music is Getting Worse

I thought technically you couldn't actually increase the real loudness beyond a certain amount (e.g. the output of your audio file is 0db the entire time). You can increase the "apparent" loudness up toward that real ceiling though, I thought, which is what has been happening. And the way...

Re: Top Scientists: Pop Music is Getting Worse

Ah yes, the old “science proves that pop music is garbage” claim. And now five for the price of one! I checked out the BBC link (https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/articles/fb84bf19-29c9-4ed3-b6b6-953e8a083334) and strap in because I have some thoughts (or feel free to ignore this entire post). 1.

Re: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

I have really enjoyed this show through its entire run. I think its recent darker turn is a necessary consequence of taking seriously Rebecca’s unhealthy behavior throughout the show. And the increased focus on secondary characters goes along with her increased awareness that other people have their...

Re: Don't have a cow! (Sacred Coward Reviews)

Chumpy - Good solid tune although it doesn’t stick very strongly in my head. Nice guitar playing, lead and backing vocals, etc. The snare drum feels a little thin and monotonous, but other than that the production is solid. Some clever lines, especially the one about that damn high note in the nati...

Re: Don't embarrass the (Sacred Coward prefight)

Technical difficulties resulted in me sending my entry over a day past the deadline. If it appears in the fight, it is thanks to the gracious and generous Fightmasters. If not, I have no one to blame but myself.

"Flamethrower" weirdness in the jukebox

In the Jukebox, I noticed that chronologically, "Flamethrower" is listed first, before the actual first fight, "Golfpunk Drives a Cadillac," even thought the dates are correct. Also, not that I'm complaining, but Jerkatorium feat. Micah Sommersmith are currently listed on the Juk...

Re: Take A Deep Breath And Smell Those (Foxglove reviews)

ARSEnal - I like the MIDI arrangement, having done plenty of this kind of thing myself. It presents the melodies cleanly and lets them be clearly heard against each other. In this case, the overlay of instrumental sounds works pretty well, though after the solo opening I was hoping for some thunder...

Re: The Good Place

We're still enjoying it but to be honest I'm wondering now how long they can stretch this out. I suspect maybe they are leading up to another big twist near the end of the season that recontextualizes everything again. That might work, but doesn't seem like a sustainable strategy for the show over ...

Re: The Good Place

I just finished the first season a couple of days ago. I'm not in love with the show as a whole, but the plot twists have been superb so far (and incredibly audacious, especially for a sitcom) which will definitely keep me watching a little longer. Keep at it! Now that the central twist has been re...

Season 2 is proceeding splendidly. My wife and I love love love this show. It's brilliantly written (both the overall plotting of all the twists and turns, and the dialog and character development) and brilliantly performed (D'Arcy Carden! William Jackson Harper!

Re: The LEGO Batman Movie

I'm still hoping to see this at some point. I enjoyed the LEGO Movie but thought the plot was incredibly formulaic, and I thought Will Arnett's Batman was one of the highlights of that movie. From what I've heard, the LEGO Batman Movie is not just a good LEGO movie but actually a good Batman movie.

Re: Flame On! (Flamethrower Reviews)

Chthonic Doom - Some nice riffs and pretty good heavy vocals, but for me I don’t think it lands as hard as you want it to, and in particular the constant crash cymbals just create a bed of white noise that I find really irritating. James Owens - You really doubled down on the “sing-along” challenge...
