If that truly was their reasoning, then they're dumber than I thought they were. Guess what... they are! I did a search for SciFi. Posted below are the not-so-surprising results. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...=scifi&es_th=1
I think they just wanted people to know that their channel is now made for idiots, proven by their reliance on those shit movies they make. I don't care how many sharks you throw into a tornado, camp done on purpose is rarely as successful as camp stumbled on by accident. As an example of accident-camp, see the Batman TV series. For a viewing of the purposeful-camp corpse, see the Batman TV series after they ran it into the ground.

There are just some things you can't un-see, no matter how hard you try. Adam West's Batusi has to rate right up there with "parents having sex".

wait, what... so you actually enjoyed watching your parents do the deed? waa... waa, WHAT!?




no wait, sorry! you were actually saying that you greatly enjoyed one of my favorite batman moments as well? ah, gillaume... that's very kind of you.


but seriously... what about the one where he has to carry a lit bomb across half the city, and even when he gets to the waterfront, somehow he can't even dispose of it there...?

Yeah. SyFy is really stupid when they change their spelling to improve search results and then pay for preferential treatment for searches for "Sci-Fi".

And Batman an accidental camp show??? No Way! Those men knew they were wearing tights in the city.

I would disagree with that attempt at Monday-morning quarterbacking and point to the fact that he bought a bunch of Batman comics. This was Silver-Age Batman and they didn't have to stray far from the source material for that first season. Those were some pretty wacky comics that, frankly, make the show look like it was done by Chris Nolan. Nah, it didn't become truly self-aware until it became a pop-culture phenom

Not quarterbacking sir. Sir? It's like "What's Up Tiger Lilly?". You see, I happen to know something about the tights. Can't prove it though...

They probably soft pedaled the camp at first to make it last longer, and because they didn't want to offend the faithful. Please see "Warhol" for details.

Whoops! Sorry arne! I didn't mean to pick you for quarterback, I meant the guy in the article who claimed the show was supposed to be a whacky whacksadoodle from the get-go. I mean, it's true to a certain extent but the thing is, they didn't have go too far from the source material of the time... those were some really awful comics. The only faithful I could think they would have offended is those who might have a foggy memory of The Dark Knight from the first five or six years of Batsy's run at DC, back when Bill Finger was running the joint. That was some relatively dark matter. Once the Comic Code killed the industry the Batman line became little more than issue after issue of Batusi.

Oh yeah... I should also mention that I'm really splitting hairs on this whole "camp" thing and I should probably look into getting a hobby. I hear this "virtual" pinball thing is really taking off... might look into it.

Roller Disco. Roller Boogie. 4-corner standard or 4-wheel in-line blades?

In-Line blades were/are just a fad and had a much smaller era of popularity. Roller skates date back much further, there popularity lasted much longer and are easier to use/master by all accounts. Also as one that did roller skate for several years in my youth I can attest to that. I doubt you can or would attempt half the tricks with in-line skates that you can do with roller skates, doing a power slide with in-line skates would seem like asking for injury.

dunno about that, steve. from what i've observed, in-line skates pretty much made roller skates obsolete in the US... going back to the early 90's, i think.

i guess i can see them not being as useful for tricks, but with their lower center of gravity and faster top speed, they are clearly the 'sexier' skate, which is certainly a big selling point in the US market. they are also perfect for playing warm-weather hockey, which is what they were originally invented for a long time ago, i believe.

i used to know this guy who could hit insane speeds on the streets. i had a ten-speed street bike at the time and couldn't touch him. oddly, he was also a jesus freak.

I suppose it all depends on what's popular where you live, though these days both forms and ice rinks are pretty much a dead art, with skate boarding being the thing here these days.

In Los Angeles Rollerblades made standard skates obsolete in '80.
They were everywhere, and moreso than the standard skates had been.

hockey is a pretty huge thing in the US, canada, and across europe... but i could definitely see skating being extinct in oz, africa and asia, yet thriving in other places.

maybe it comes down to climate before everything else.

anyway yeah... skateboarding is a perfect sport for the concrete jungle IMO.

The University of Wisconsin hockey team apparently plays outdoor games when the temperature is cooperating... which happens more often than I'd like.

The first time I read "Childhood's End" (circa 1978-80), I was impressed, but when I read it again about 20 years later, it seemed dated; could that be because the stories about huge ships hovering over our cities can no longer be counted on a single mitt's digits?

Incidentally.....tell the blowers that be that I want a movie of "The Mote In God's Eye" before I stop sucking air! (Just sayin'...)

i actually haven't read any of those books, so ya got me.

a.c. clarke in particular i remember for having a pretty awkward writing style. the "rendezvous with rama" series was interesting for its ideas but was quite a chore to get through. sort of anti-ray bradbury.

the series "man in the high castle" by PKD is set to resume this fall, i believe. that should be one that works out well, since the first ep was very well received.


...


well, lately i've been checking up on aardman's stuff. the wallace and grommit series seems the best, so far. today i found the entire "cracking contraptions" collection of shorts in one youtube video:


Wallace and Gromit's Cracking Contraptions Complete Series with Behind the Scenes (2002)

Last night I watched the Brian Wilson biopic "Love & Mercy". I'm not really a Beach Boys or Brian Wilson fan and would normally skip a movie like this, but for some reason I really wanted to watch it. It went back and forth between the younger "Pet Sounds" Wilson and the later 80's Wilson (played by John Cusack). I thought it was a pretty damn interesting story. Elizabeth Banks was fantastic in it.

i remember that malfunctioning droid ruby2dee2 and myself being BIG fans of brian, with sleep-master sleeps not far behind.

maybe that was just a pleasant cloud drifting over our heads, or maybe a portent upon impending evil?

but i DOUBT any of us old-heads could properly communicate brian's brilliance and impact upon music and the industry... even though a couple of us were indeed born right around the time brian was beginning to crash and burn rather violently.

i'm not gonna repeat this, otherwise stevoz might discover this thread--

but i was going through some old DVD's when i discovered that the venture bros show is ridiculously great and hilarious-- i mean, just watch the pilot and skip eps 1-2 (they suck for some reason)...... and after that it's gravy.

Yeah, you don't wanna miss Love & Mercy, Nic. But shame on you, Scooby! How could you not give props to Paul Giamatti? He is positively skin-crawling as Dr. Eugene Landy! I was pretty sure Paulie Gmail was gonna go a-rapin' during every scene he was in with Elizabeth Banks. Or a-stranglin'. Could be both and not necessarily in that order.
This has really been a Paulie Gmail kind of summer. In the last week I saw L&M, Straight Outta Compton and San Andreas and Paul Giamatti rocked them all!
I vaguely remember ads for Venture Bros. playing back when my stepson watched Ed, Edd and Eddie 24 hours a day... I think... or was that Johnny Bravo? Sealab 2020? Well, all I know is it wasn't Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. A great show. Michael Keaton really screwed it up in his "Birdman" movie... nothing like the cartoon!

I've been working out on a very-old used Yamaha QY-10 portable sequencer that I picked up online for $20. I owned one of these back in '93. The current one arrived with the previous owner's songs and custom patterns on it, and I promised to send those back to him.

But what a POS MIDI is. This was Supposed to be a uniform standard of indexing the sounds and their controls; that the same MIDI file would sound Identical on any MIDI player, and sound well. By starting with a basic piano waveform, and then finding the next sound that is consistent to the piano waveform, and lining up all of the sounds by their Similarity from A TO Z in A Logical Progression.

Not only did the proprietary corporate mentality louse that whole thing up for profits, by assuming false competition among themselves, Yamaha vs. Roland vs. Kurzwell, vs. bla-bla. They also failed in the pre General Midi era to adopt a standard of banks and controls and their indexed ranges. The QY-10 has less than 127 voices, including drums. ANd the notes that are commonly used for standard drum voices are different from each other. If I play a snare drum, I instead get a high Conga when sent to Cakewalk or a rival company's device.
Every time I record the percussion, I have to remap the voices to correct for "those congas".

The MIDI in '83 was supposed to be a standard among different manufacturers and not a crash course in user computer science.

paulie G, the baseball guy's son?
i haven't seen him recently, but he pretty much annihilates every scene his costars dare to share with him IIRC. sort of bill murray territory, altho i just hit my head and there's obviously a better example out there.


venture bros is a lovely send-up off stuff like johnny quest, superhero series, scooby doo and pretentious blowhards everywhere. it's hard to describe exactly, but if you like patrick warburton (puddy from seinfeld, johnny johnson from newsradio) and the concept of failure, the first few seasons are quite delicious.

Yeesh! That movie was tough sledding. While I appreciate the fact that Mila Kunis was cast as the role of Neo (since I'd much rather look at her than Keanu Reeves), everything else was a Matrix rehash (harvesting humans? Again?!?!) Except for the cool-ass "I know Kung-Fu" bullet-time from the Matrix. You don't get that. You get roller-skates with rockets. Which is about as dumb as it sounds.
On a side note, my neighbor wanted a copy and I thought the film deserved a first-class porn title, so I labeled it Jupiter's Ass-Ending and told him it was two hours of hardcore anal. Which might have been a better movie.
