  • Pour out for Harold Ramis' passing.
  • Discussion of our beverage, where Otto buys it, the practical uses of bleeping profanity, and Gwenyth Paltrow. No kidding!
  • Is FaceSpace screwing us and other pages on getting to our fans? These videos strongly imply maybe:

  • The comparison of the Final Cut and original versions of Zhora's retirement:
  • Dirk and Otto reveal their 1st and 2nd favorite movies.
  • The collected works of Starlog magazine, scanned and posted here. The specific issue that turned on the (dim) light bulb over Dirk's head about filmmaking.
  • The book Dirk never got around to mentioning:

  • A pair of Network scenes referred to:

  • Movie Bob's explanation as to who the Guardians of the Galaxy are.
  •  The Gravity "blooper" shot...

    ...and a taste of how the VFX were done:
