SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE is the real deal. Innovative animation and storytelling craft behind a propulsive and modern popcorn entertainment full of great characters.

If anyone on the Fediverse is looking for an amazing mechanical engineer who excels at prototyping, kickstarter fulfillment, and dealing with Chinese factories, Sarah Pavis has officially put up her "for hire" site and I couldn't recommend anyone more highly for this kind of work: measuretwice.nyc/

The New Zealand Film Commission is looking for a Dev Exec. Any of my Hollywoody friends want to live in the land of Hobbits, Avatars, Dragons (of both the Smaug and Pete's varieties) and Ghosts in Shells?

We did not end up selling the TV show I previously tooted about pitching to networks. Back to the drawing board!

I recently got a PS4. What are the essential games? I already have and love the new Spider-man game.

I found out recently that my great grandfather was Welsh, and black. Which was super interesting to me, because that's four generations ago. Like... late 19th century (1800s). Victorian era.

And there's people out there still pretending as if all minorities in Europe are recent immigrants. To the point where I, for almost all of my life, felt alienated about my identity.

Not that it's news to me, but wow, media really isn't great at representing the variety of people throughout history.

Shout out to when I used to read the Internet Yellow-Pages to find good websites.

Alexa needs to learn how to say "hip hop" without sounding like a narc.

using a twitter cross-poster and posting a bunch of stuff that people here usually put behind a CW out of courtesy is kinda the masto equivalent of having a loud public phone conversation in a cafe, please put a tiny bit more effort into your presence here.

I've started unfollowing people who just crosspost their Twitter feed here. It's fascinating how "wrong" that stream of content feels over here, and how easy it is to tell when it's happening.

I know some people like big smart phones, but I think it’s ludicrous to make iPhones so much larger than a human being.

“Megalo Box” on Crunchyroll is my favorite TV series I’ve seen this year.

I’m also 99% certain I never turned on notifications for the “TV” iOS app.

The official Apple “TV” iOS app sent me a notification that there was going to be an NFL game. Garbage spam like this is why I turn off notifications for every app other than texting and phone calls.

I honestly think that one of the reasons I love sandwiches is that they have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

In nature, all bathrooms are genderless and reproduce asexually.

lol ok my dude, you’re definitely the good guy in this story

Mastodon

Dear Friend,

I have created this Mastodon instance as a resource for people who work within and around the film and television industry. I'm not going to be enforcing that goal strictly, but I hope that people like you will keep this in mind as you're inviting friends to join. There are plenty of other public Mastodon instances like mastodon dot social out there for your non-industry friends, and you'll still be able to follow any of those people just like on Twitter. Also, please don't be intimidated by all the weird language that surrounds how Mastodon works. It's pretty self-explanatory when you start using it.

My hope is that Mastodon in general and bbq.snoot.com in specific will allow an alternative to Twitter. This should be a fun place for people to discuss film and filmmaking on the "local" timeline, and also access a broader social network via the "federated" timeline.

I will be actively pruning our member list to maintain a positive experience. For now, that means I will be a benevolent dictator when it comes to kicking out harassers, spammers, and other ne'er-do-wells. If this turns into a bigger task than I can handle, then I'll have to come up with a better long-term solution.

If you would like to join this Mastodon instance, then please email bbq@snoot.com and include a brief description of your involvement with the film and/or TV industries.

Love,
Keith
