Default So what's our friend Arne / Sleepy been up to, lately?

Sleepy, you've reported on the frontlines for so long that I kind of get overwhelmed at times. Nothing personal.

Really, I'm not sure how to compare your encounters with my very few personal brushes with celebs.

If I may speak for Bill and myself-- you're probably the most interesting person here, and you've been missed, lately.

In terms of Nic and Bill-- okay yes, we can fight like dats and cogs, but at the end of the day, Bill is still a f-cking idiot. Isn't that a comforting thought there, matey?

You know, instead of besmirching my good name, you could go over to that other thread and tell me if Lords of Dogtown is the movie you're talking about! That's been driving me up a wall. Ah, how to keep a f-cking idiot busy for 24 hours! I think you found the recipe, nic!

Ah... hang on... this whole thing is so ridiculously stupid...

F-ck... I think it was some dorky 80's movie that my Japanese boss made me watch on Betamax. He was SO proud of himself for preserving Betamax and Mickey Rourke on Betamax (Don't ask). Sort of a weirdest employer yet coolest employer, at the same time. Long story short, I still can't remember the fluffiing name of the film!

Haw! You have to admire the man's dedication to a format! Hey, Betamax did look better than VHS. I remember in about 1983, I met a dude who had converted a good-sized closet into a floor-to-ceiling VHS library. That was impressive as hell in 1983. Never saw that guy again. He only had one leg. I tried watching The Exorcist on shrooms at his place. I think I made it 3/4 of the way through.
You were absolutely no help whatsoever. I think you should have to watch the 500 candidate films to find that scene. You should start with Lords of Dogtown. It's a movie about 1970s SoCal skateboarders with a kick-ass soundtrack and Heath Ledger at the top of his game. That'll make it easier when you have to sit through St. Elmo's Fire again.

Actually I use x265 as my format of choice.

What does it mean? x256=""twice the compression efficiency, you can save your video files with identical quality in only half the storage space. The x265 Encoder lets you store twice as much video on any hard drive or cloud file sharing service, uploading and sharing video twice as fast."" In a nut shot>>>

Oh ho I don't misdirect, though those technically inept may interpret it as such.

Also I fully recommend Squirt chain lube for your bicycle chain...4000kms on and still changing silky smooth, with minimal wear...

Actually as I recall last time Arnie went AWOL it was because a new 7 eleven opened nearby...

I can't imagine what could be better then that, though they say anything is possible in Hollywood!
