@Netfix “Beyond”

Dear @Netflix,

I’m different than your average movie/TV watcher. I have a ridiculously photographic memory and I can therefore pick out edit errors or inconsistencies like crazy. So, as an employee of yours with the job title of, let’s say, “Continuity Editor”, I’d be your favorite person. But as just a regular guy who picks up every single inconsistency or mistake or time error mistakes, I’m just plain annoying. With that said, you did an amazing job with “Stranger Things”. I don’t think there was a single mistake. Seriously. And that must have been hard. All that 80’s stuff was timelined totally correctly. #Impressed. But listen, I just watched S1E1 of “Beyond” with my gay, homosexual, male boyfriend and I picked out a few issues. A few were time line. A few were annoyingly bad edits. Real quick: They’re in the car and his hair is all wet and laying on his forehead. Camera goes to her. Camera goes back to him and his hair is all pushed back. Camera goes to her. Then goes back to him and his hair is back again to laying on his forehead. Another one real quick if I may: She’s at the bedside of whomever the unconscious old man is and she’s talking to him and then she get’s text message responses from him to her phone. After responding twice, the camera shows him from over her shoulder, and if you look at her phone, it has 3 texts on it. Not surprisingly, when he responds to her the third time, it’s exactly what we were already able to see on her phone’s messages screen. There were about 20 errors in all.

I like the show. Can’t wait to binge watch while said gay, homosexual, male lover boyfriend is at work making money so I can stay home and watch TV. But I think you should hire a continuity editor. People (freaks) like me rarely miss a mistake.

With respect, @VocalVirgo.

 

“Beyond” editing.

VHS was still around until 2016.

Were you dummies aware that VCR’s were still being made until just a few moths ago? Funai Electric, a company that’s been around since the early 1960’s, had continued making VCR’s and selling them under Sanyo’s brand. But that stopped this summer. There is not a manufacturer in the world still making them. They are gone. Dead. Over. Just like your sex life.

 

This is a VCR riddled with VHS tapes.

Slab City Saturday Movie Night

No, there isn’t a Movie Night in Slab City. Trust me, there are way better things to do here on a Saturday night- like music at The Range or dropping acid in the HoT Springs. But what I’m talking about is me in the Motorhome freshly showered off from the enormous pot-cloud that was 3 hours at The Range (but I had a f*cking blast though! The people and all the dogs were all so freaking nice! Oh, and there was a cat and a rabbit. Seriously.) and I’m watching Bad Grandpa with Johnny Knoxville. I thought it would be stupid. I’ve had it forever. But mediocre WiFi left me few choices. Anyway, this sh*t is HILARIOUS.  Some of it is a little predictable, but wow, some of it is just over the top funny sh*t. I give it 4.5 inches.
