YANSS Podcast 019 – Placebo sleep and other new discoveries in placebo research « You Are Not So Smart
M. Night is quite competent, even good sometimes, at shooting his movies.
He can manage the technical aspects and even create a proper mood, given an OK story.
But all his stories are dumb and he’s not the guy to get anything extra out of his actors.
Indeed, much like George Lucas, if anything he’s actually gonna get in the way of the performances of otherwise talented actors.
And his lead, Jaden. is not particularly talented, but I hated him way less in the Karate Kid remake than I did here, so M. Night even brought him down.
They’ve have been way better off just making this a fantasy movie instead of dressing like like sci-fi.
At least then, when nutty “why did that happen?!” moments occur, the answer is “oh, yeah — magic!”
instead of “Why didn’t they get someone with a passing familiarity with reality take a look at this script?”

We check in with a few of our TOE regulars: Peter Choyce has is one of my oldest friends and a listener favorite, but he has a secret we’ve never addressed until now.

Will Forte had given up on thoughts of becoming an actor when he settled down into a successful career as a television comedy writer for several hit shows. Will tells Marc how he got roped back into the performance world, what led to a completely pressure-free audition for Saturday Night Live, and why he never seriously believed he would get a role in Alexander Payne’s new film Nebraska. Today’s episode is sponsored by Hover and by Slingbox.
Chris Enns tries a Saturday night version of his call random folks on Skype and make a show podcast. It turns out not that many people are on Skype on a Saturday night – who knew? (Hint: Not Chris!) Listen in as Kyle Roderick, John Locke and Matt Steeeeeeeele chat about what’s going on in their worlds. Movies reviews, CMS discussions, NAMM 2014, and lots of weather.
It’s the very first ever podcast of 2014, and we’re celebrating with never before seen audio quality! Not that you can see sound. Unless you’re a bat! Do any bats listen to the podcast? We just don’t know.If they WERE listening, they’d hear Paul and Quinns are talking about new year’s resolutions, and all the games they played over the holiday season! Games like the deeply hyped Yedo, the deeply excellent Timeline, the deeply deep Power Grid, the deeply creepy One Night Werewolf, and the deeply recent New Amsterdam. Finally, we descend to the deepest pits of nerdery, because our Game of the Month is none other than Dungeons & Dragons. Enjoy, everybody!
Pretty self-explanatory, this one. Last night I attached my earbud microphones to my glasses with rubber bands to minimize the "cranial backwash," walked outside to the rice paddy next to our house, sat there quietly for about 10 minutes or so then went back inside.
I recommend listening to it with headphones on–your best pair–and in a very quiet setting. The detail is incredible, if I do say so myself. You can hear exactly what I was hearing. Try picking out the two times I scratched my head.
It loops very well. I feel asleep listening to it and dreamed I had little vicious frogs stuck in my hair. No joke.
