Just add a bunch of dustep tracks and brightly coloured graphics to the pitch then take them out of the final cut.

I already used that trick when making a music video, but he liked it the first time...

The perils of the creative degree. When I did mine the standard for a first, as told by the lecturers, was "if you'd done it better than I could have"
As if that wasn't nebulous enough we're talking about a load of egoist musicians who had to settle for teaching in the first place.

I'm going to give myself some kind of nocturnal mania if I don't stop falling asleep with the news on. The Manchester, London Bridge and the tower block have woken me up in the past month.

Audiobooks wrote in first-person, which are narrated by someone of a different gender to the main character. They're just ever so slightly unnerving.

I fell asleep with some trackies on and I honestly thought I'd pissed myself I woke up with such sweaty legs.

What late night talkshow hosts, from the US, no less, chat on about is not bloody news.
|>>|| No. 25378
There is a certain art to the daily late-night US chat show that we don't really get over here. They're a bit of an institution and one or two days per week, actually pretty good.

I can't tell if I'm hungry or the five past it hash browns I had for breakfast just aren't settling.

Rob Delaney made the same joke on Frankie Boyle tonight that he did on Question Time last night about Theresa May saying she'd lose if the Tories lost 6 seats when they ended up losing double that plus one.
|>>|| No. 25381
That sounds suspiciously like a joke someone made right here the day after the election.

I think a lot of panel show guests just recycle their stand up routines, that's one of the reasons I don't like the format.
|>>|| No. 25384
To be fair, it was a lot less obvious when the format started however many years ago. Ian & Paul on HIGNFY never seemed to be squeezing out routines back when the right gentlemen the tub of lard was guesting the show.
|>>|| No. 25385
Right, but Anon was annoyed that a panel show had used recycled jokes, so I was just wanted to point that out.
You fucking cunt.

No I bloody well don't want 'personalised content' or whatever it is they are trying to sell me. I hope none of you lads have signed up to this so that maybe they drop the idea.
For the record: I do pay my tv license. I know I don't have to but I enjoy some of the programming.

You beat me to it. Although perhaps this nonsense deserves a thread of its own.

Don't be silly. Just sign up using your real postcode that definitely doesn't belong to a local public building and your phone number that definitely wasn't taken from the Ofcom-approved "drama number" range, and a name that is definitely your name and not one that belongs to someone you really, really don't like.

I think I've discovered a new low in software shitbaggery. A page on an installer saying it's going to phone home, and a checkbox to agree that's pre-ticked and greyed out.

When I bought a 16:9 widescreen TV I thought films would fit perfectly without being letterboxed (those black bars at the top and bottom).
Why do film makers do this? Isn't 16:9 aspect ratio?
|>>|| No. 25392
>Why do film makers do this?
Cinema. The standards for film for around five decades have been 1.85 and 2.39, and these are now the most common ratios for cinema exhibition.
|>>|| No. 25393
A fair proportion of modern films are shot in 16:9 for the benefit of home viewers, but wider aspect ratios are still common and used to be ubiquitous. Some Blu Ray releases are pan-and-scanned down to 16:9.
There are some 21:9 TVs on the market, designed as a compromise ratio between CinemaScope and 16:9.
|>>|| No. 25395
Ish. Prior to 1970 the standard was 1.85 or 2.35, post-1970 it was 2.39. The 21:9 display format doesn't exactly match any of the common anamorphic aspect ratios, so you'll always get some amount of letterboxing or pillarboxing.

I just wish 16:10 computer monitors were still widely available.

70 fucking pound to get a return train to the North! I moved back in with my parents to save money while I write up my thesis but now I'm hopping on the train every few weeks for an hour meeting and paying out the nose for the privilege.
It would be cheaper to fly somewhere in Europe.

I've been invited to a BBQ with people I don't like, so that'll be fun.

I find that in situations like that, the best thing to do is stuff your face and then point at it when anyone tries talking to you as if to say "I'm eating here, thanks."
|>>|| No. 25401
These days, we've got absolutely enormous high-resolution displays available. A 28" 4k monitor costs less in real terms than I paid for my first 15" 1024x768 LCD.
I could go for a 4:3 laptop, mind you.

Lad, that was just silly. Everyone knows you're supposed to put "attack helicopter".

That plan is reserved for when doomsday hits, at the moment I'm steadfast refusing to give them even one more account number they can spin to say the plan is working.

I'm not even sure why they're bothering. If, as they say, something like 99% of the population engage in licensable activity, why don't they just drop the whole licensing nonsense and just fund it from general taxation instead? If they're scared that a future Tory government is going to defund them, recent governments have been enforcing their spending policy already, having frozen the licence fee since 2010, up until this year where they allowed 1%. If the government has the power to set the licence fee, then effectively it already has the power to set the funding that the BBC receives, in which case both sides might as well just stop pretending and pay out straight from the Treasury.

On a side note, it still pisses me off that they kept referring to the "iPlayer loophole". Saying people watched for free using the "iPlayer loophole" is like saying people are getting away without car insurance by using the "not having a car loophole".

I spilt some black pepper, cleaned it up, and started playing with my knob.
Lads, if you think the heat is intense outside, my Jap's eye is on another level entirely.

The law has changed. You now need a TV license to watch either live or on-demand programmes.

I've watched a bit of HIGNFY for the first time in ages. Nowadays it seems to be largely reading out Twitter posts by the general public.

I wish those little shits who still have the 'I'm voting labour' stickers or the terminally offended Tories would leave ARE LAURA alone. Her article today was about the Queens speech being a sign of May's decline and yet even Corbynistas are having a go.
You never see Nick Robinson getting this level of abuse and he has more than enough skeletons in his closet. If you're wondering, I use social media as a news aggregate which it performs very well at.
