Machete Order For Star Wars

Machete Order For Star Wars
Brace your­selves, what follows is an amaz­ingly long blog post about the best order in which to watch Star Wars. First, let me say this: for people that couldn't care less about the prequel trilogy, I suggest Harmy's De­spe­cial­ized Edi­tions. They are 720p videos that are the result of "Harmy" from The Orig­i­nal Trilogy forums painstak­ingly re­con­struct­ing the the­atri­cal re­leases of all three films uti­liz­ing a wide variety of video sources as well as custom mattes. Down­load­ing, burning, la­bel­ing, and print­ing cases for these films is one of the neck­beardi­est things I've done (aside from writing this blog post), and I'm ex­tremely glad I did it. If the "proper order" for Star Wars for you is the orig­i­nal trilogy and nothing else, stop reading now and find the De­spe­cial­ized Edi­tions. So, with that out of the way, what can you do if you do wish to involve the prequel trilogy? There are two obvious options for watch­ing the Star Wars saga. What Gets Removed?

Ask Chris Special Edition: The Best Of 'Ask Chris' This week marks the 200th installment of ComicsAlliance’s weekly Ask Chris column, in which senior writer Chris Sims tackles reader questions that send him delving into comics history, the metaphors at the heart of his favorite characters that have developed over decades and, every now and then, straight up fan-fiction. To mark the occasion, we’ve gone back through the archives (and taken a quick poll of readers) to sort out the absolute best of the past 200 columns, covering topics like the secular humanism at the heart of Scooby-Doo, the complicated chronology of Super Mario Bros., the 75-year competition between Marvel and DC, and more. And Batman. So, so much Batman.

It's about 2 miles down the street from Paramount's Carowinds. 24/192 Music Downloads are Very Silly Indeed Also see Xiph.Org's new video, Digital Show & Tell, for detailed demonstrations of digital sampling in action on real equipment! Articles last month revealed that musician Neil Young and Apple's Steve Jobs discussed offering digital music downloads of 'uncompromised studio quality'. Much of the press and user commentary was particularly enthusiastic about the prospect of uncompressed 24 bit 192kHz downloads. 24/192 featured prominently in my own conversations with Mr. Young's group several months ago. Unfortunately, there is no point to distributing music in 24-bit/192kHz format.

I Has a Sweet Potato 02:29 pm: I Has a Sweet Potato You know, a lot of times I write up random posts and then don't post them. But Best Beloved just called me, and I could not really explain why I was inarticulate about sweet potatoes, so I said I'd go ahead and post this. That way, she can read it at work and know just what kind of day it has been. (Short version, for those who do not feel like reading the whole post: ARRRRRRG. Fucking sweet potatoes.) The longer version, summarized in conversation form:

For about $300 in equipment costs, anyone can produce working electrical circuits in the 60 seconds it takes to print them using commodity inkjet printers and off-the-shelf materials. Instant inkjet circuits The technique, called instant inkjet circuits, allows for printing arbitrary-shaped conductors onto rigid or flexible materials and could advance the prototyping skills of non-technical enthusiasts and novice hackers. Silver nanoparticle ink is injected into an empty cartridge and used in conjunction with an off-the-shelf inkjet printer to enable “instant inkjet circuit” prototyping (credit: Georgia Institute of Technology)

These low-budget tips and trick can help you organize and de-clutter space; prolong and preserve your products; or teach you something (e.g., tie a full Windsor) that you simply did not know before.

Separate egg yolks like a boss The Ultimate Oral History of Wet Hot American Summer: Movies + TV WhenWet Hot American Summer hit theaters a decade ago, the film—a sketch-based comedy set in 1981, on the last day of the fictional Camp Firewood—came and went faster than a hormonal teenage boy. But then something amazing happened: Thanks to the movie's ahead-of-its-time absurdist humor, a cast stocked with relative unknowns who blossomed into marquee names, and the magical word-of-mouth power of DVDs and Netflix, Wet Hot became a cult classic. For this complete-ish oral history in celebration of Wet Hot's 10th anniversary, we asked director and writer David Wain, his cowriter and creative partner, Michael Showalter, and stars including Janeane Garofalo, Paul Rudd, David Hyde Pierce, Elizabeth Banks, and Amy Poehler to reminisce about the shoot, the living conditions, the kids, the notoriously horrendous weather, and the hilarity (and debauchery) that took place off-camera. DAVID WAIN, cowriter-director: Michael [Showalter] and I met at NYU.
