The Music Festival Thread
Time

Arrived safely at Summer Camp! The line to get in is crazy long already, and the gates don’t even open for another 7 hours or so.

I’ve managed to get a decent camping spot in the past when I’ve come on Friday after all the Thursday early birds have already set up shop, so I think I’m gonna skip waiting in the line for that long and go nap in my car.

Between when I found out I’m getting moved back to night shift and the day it happens (the 29th), and with the music festival I’m going to, I only had about 6 days available to hang out with the few friends I have. It’s down to 2 after tonight (which would be tomorrow night and Memorial Day).

Not one of my friends has made time to hang out with me. One of them said they would tonight and has blown me off ever since I got off work 3 hours ago. And that’s my upstairs fucking neighbor, who was home when I got back and then suddenly left 10 minutes later.

I really feel like no one I care about gives a fuck about me right now.

So plans were made tonight, and now she’s trying to change them to something else that she knows I won’t want to do.

I absolutely agree with suspifciouscoffee (which also is exactly in line with my previous post). And I really don’t think it’s a “crazy idea” or that anyone reasonable would disagree with that.

At least I hope not.

And that’s the whole point of my last post. I basically agree to a certain extent with what you guys are both saying (not Peterson).

I’m with you. I’m not sure why anyone would feel the need to point it out. There are many things that could be the “cause.” Being nice to someone, smiling, being mean to someone, ignoring someone, etc. Pointing out “causes” seems fruitless and only serves to shift at least some of the blame on the victims.

This.

The VCD is usable for timing and positioning, but shit for figuring out the drop shadow.

Actually it is not, as you can see on the screenshots. Positioning is not the same (plus a few long sentences are split on 2 lines to fit on P&S VCD).

There is currently no official home release with original theatrical subtitles.

Sorry, I meant the Z bootleg, which I have in VCD format. I didn’t actually notice the other VCD shot up there.

Saruman.

I didn’t say there weren’t parts of the ROTK EE I liked, but on balance it’s not as good as the theatrical.

I’m not a huge fan of the Mouth of Sauron scene myself, but it’s mostly the extra stuff with Aragorn the ghost army that make me prefer the theatrical. It’s not just that, but that’s most of it.

I want! I want!

How does it look compared to the most recent Harmy?

Now I just have to figure out how to get it!

If you want a copy that approaches official Blu-Ray release “standards” (like Harmy attempts to match), you’ll want to hold off until a DNR and shot-by-shot color correction is completed, which might be a bit. There will be many offshoot releases of this - what’s out now is pretty much the “base” that others will build off of.

Which isn’t to take away from the amazing achievement of the project or the final product - it’s amazing, looks wonderful, and perfectly captures what watching a very clean 35mm Technicolor print from 1977 would be like.

Tom Holland is far and away the most perfect Spidey and Peter Parker we’ve had in live acfion

I haven’t seen Homecoming, but Toby was already the most perfect, and the trailers/clips I’ve seen don’t convince me that Holland is actually better.

Toby was an excellent Peter Parker, but a subpar in-suit Spidey. Andrew Garfield was a subpar Peter Parker, but an excellent in-suit Spidey. Tom Holland is excellent at both.

I do not get this at all. Tobey was great in or out of the suit, Andrew was abysmal with or without the suit. Holland is like Tobey.

Tobey’s Spidey never feels like he is having any fun being Spidey (note that I’m talking about in the suit exclusively here). Garfield and Holland both do. Garfield out of the suit was too “cool” to be Peter, but Tobey and Holland both capture the awkward nerd who takes the weight of the world on their shoulders perfectly.
