The Remi Review Episode 3

May 21, 2012

Longest episode yet, a whole half hour! -if you can handle that much! 12hrs to do first render. 3 hours to export, 2 hours to upload, 2 hours for youtube to process it…This one had my mactop almost smoking, with need for several cool downs. Pet the cat, get a drink, back to editing. Other technical problems this time, hmmm. Spelled ‘develop’ wrong. Forgot colour correction on the far camera. Thanks to James and everyone else!….oh and the contest over when the show will stop showing. Will be updated to state that this is a weekend show filmed on Fridayish. Thanks for watching!

November 15, 2009


We’ve all been there (except me). You know you’re wrong, but you’ll argue to the death that you’re right. Maybe its a monetary bias, you’re personally involved, or maybe you’ve previously said something in error and now you don’t want to flip flop. . . . ..Maybe you just like to screw with people. . . .Whatever your twisted motivation, this is how you win arguments when you are wrong.

All Good Authorities Are Goin’ Totalitarian

May 14, 2009


I’ve been getting into Twitter lately. Some real stupid comments on there, one guy made the claim that socialism plus time equals totalitarianism. . . .First of all, the two are incompatible; one can only exist at the exhaustion of the fundamentals of the other. Secondly, shit, name me a type of government that isn’t going to lead to totalitarianism with time. Capitalism’s certainly gone that route. If you have a boss, you are well aware that democracy doesn’t really happen in our day to day (more…)

Value

April 24, 2009


Does the value of a thing determine its price? Valuable things do often carry a high price. Does the price of a thing determine the value? Expensive things are often quite valuable. Are the value and price essentially the same thing? Does the bear shit in the woods? If the dog hadn’t stopped to piss he would have caught the rabbit. (more…)

What To Do When Aliens Arrive.

April 8, 2009


Shit your pants and run nowhere. But seriously, what is the real universal language? Sure we love you, we mean you no harm. How would we show it physically? Would physics even be the medium to convey our disposition? For all we know they could be mind readers or cross dimensional beings living in our underpants. (more…)

You can’t invade a foreign country, overthrow the government and term it as ‘peacekeeping’- its ridiculous. (more…)

Support our Troops, not our war.

March 11, 2009


Defense is popular

Canada, we have a reputation as peace keepers- destroying the enemy is not peace keeping. We should only be engaged in defending peaceful citizens and providing aid in Afghanistan. As soon as you hunt someone down, even a bad guy, you become an aggressor. Once you become an aggressor, it is very easy for your enemy to find new recruits and (more…)

Blogging, how to get started and build traffic

January 5, 2009


One thing for sure about bloggering, what with the competition, new comers need a good strategy to bring people to their site. If you’ve got an audience already somewhere, use that to get going- hand out your web address at events, to clients and whatnot. Ok too obvious. But if you’re really at scratch, man, you’ve gotta use (more…)

Nothing is Arbitrary

December 19, 2008

Well, if somebody made a decision about something, they necessarily had to chose between options. The act of choosing itself depicts an understanding. If you were truly deadlocked, you could not act. Whatever the minute detail is that pushes you one way or the other may be outside of your own consciousness (more…)
