The Widescreen Podcast #228

The times when I believe that the government is truly looking out for the people are few and far between, particularly with the current “all about me” administration; however, as someone who loves to tinker and repair his own gadgets when feasible, it’s nice that the FTC has shown that they’re actually on our side. […]

The Widescreen Podcast #227

It’s that time again! Boston beckons and the lifelong gamer in me is drawn to PAX East like Odo was drawn back to the Founders’ homeworld. (Kudos to those who catch the reference.) But before I depart, one last podcast must be done … and here it is. For whatever weird reason, you’re here to […]

The Widescreen Podcast #225

You can never get enough Monty Python. Really. Although, let’s face it… The Meaning of Life was by no means the best movie from the troupe. It was okay and had a few funny bits but otherwise it can’t really hold a candle to Life of Brian or Holy Grail.  In fact, I’d rather watch And Now For Something […]

The Widescreen Podcast #224

What in blazes in a Wimbley Woo and how does that relate to a Dingly Dell? No, this isn’t some kind of … er … adult discussion. (My Dingly Dell is just fine, thank you.) But it’s pretty sad when I was able to accurately determine where (geographically) Wimbley Woos are from. Otherwise, Redbox and […]

Watch DVD/BD ISOs Without A Writer

I’m not one for fan films. I’ve been on the Internet in one form or another since 300 baud modems were a thing. (Remember when the BBS and Quantum Link were a thing? My geek credentials are solid.) I’ve seen a lot of truly horrible fan films. I’ve also been a Star Trek fan since […]

The Widescreen Podcast #218

Yes, it’s been a while, but it’s possible (and I do stress possible) that things will be looking up for the podcast shortly, the reason for which I explain in the show. And as much as I hate Black Friday (and I do apologize to the world for that horrible export), I actually was able to get […]

The Widescreen Podcast #215

Believe it or not, the time has finally come and the new widescreen.org has been unleashed! It’s not perfect, but it’s leaps and bounds better than what it used to be. It’s HTML5 compliant, there is no Flash requirement (or –groan– Real Player or whatever), the video segments are now all on YouTube, and audio […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #211

I’ve obviously survived my trip to Canada and around the Great Lakes! It turned out to be way more amazing than I thought it would be. I can honestly say that I’m really excited about the future of the site right now. My poor widescreen.org has been hurting for a long time, living in the […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #207

I figured that the cost of really large TVs was more because of the “luxury” factor, but as it turns out the prices might really be due to the laws of supply and demand. But if you’re looking for 55-65″ TV prices to drop like they have for 40-47″ TVs, you’ve got several years to […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #206

I realize that my opinions of her don’t matter at all, but I’m really fed up with Kathleen Kennedy’s blind loyalty to George Lucas. He does not own Star Wars any more. He sold the properties – lock, stock, and barrel – to Disney. The Star Wars franchise is no longer his to control. Yet because of […]
