    Andy paid for Cover Scout. Which sucks artwork for all your MP3 and AAC music.

    Instant Shot does screen shots for Scott’s Aunt Faye. Not one penny at all. At Zero Alex’s it doesn’t suck at all.

  2. Sean Carroll’s Mindscape 58 - Seth MacFarlane on Using Science Fiction to Explore Humanity

    58 | Seth MacFarlane on Using Science Fiction to Explore Humanity August 5, 2019 | Film/TV, Humanity, Literature

    https://www.preposterousuniverse.com/podcast/2019/08/05/58-seth-macfarlane-on-using-science-fiction-to-explore-humanity/?utm_source=pocket_mylist

    Fiction shines a light on the human condition by putting people into imaginary situations and envisioning what might happen. Science fiction expands this technique by considering situations in the future, with advanced technology, or with utterly different social contexts. Seth MacFarlane’s show The Orville is good old-fashioned space opera, but it’s also a laboratory for exploring the intricacies of human behavior. There are interpersonal conflicts, sexual politics, alien perspectives, and grappling with the implications of technology. I talk with Seth about all these issues, and maybe a little bit about whether it’s a good idea to block people on Twitter.

  4. Around the World in 80s Movies Podcast - Electric Dreams (1984) | Steve Barron

    A San Francisco-based architect named Miles Harding buys a new computer to help him stay organized and on schedule, as well as to assist in the design of a brick that will hold a building together through an earthquake. Realizing that it has the potential to streamline everything in his life, Miles uses it to control everything in his apartment, providing a security system, making his coffee, and turning on and off his lights. Miles wants to give it more power, tapping it into a major information source to download as much as it can take. Unfortunately, when the computer overheats, Miles pours champagne into the computer’s circuits, causing it to malfunction in a strange way. It begins to think on its own, without directive – a self-aware being that shows an interest in music, humanity, and what it is like to feel love.

    Miles’s new upstairs neighbor is a beautiful concert cellist named Madeline Robistat. One day while practicing a concert piece on the cello, Madeline hears music from downstairs accompanying her. Madeline assumes this musician must be Miles, making her want to get to know him better. Miles also develops a crush on Madeline, but he’s so romantically inexperienced, he turns to his sentient computer to help out. However, the computer learns about love and then also begins to fall for her. This kicks off a battle of wills, as the device meant to organize Miles’s life is set to destroy it for getting in the way of its desire to achieve love.

    Starring Lenny von Dohlen and Virginia Madsen. Directed by Steve Barron.
