The Widescreen Podcast #220

Reminder: widescreen.org is the main site for my podcasts, not here, but I understand if Google leads you here instead.  (Hey, they’re both my web sites, so what do I really care?) Well, I get to wipe off some egg off my face. A few quite infuriating things happened close together, so I was a […]

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 #219 – The Hero for December

Many weird things happened between this episode and the last: I became a hero for December for someone I respect, Disney takes another step closer to becoming a monopoly, and those who are supposed to represent the people proved once again that they don’t care about anything but their corporate masters. The result is that […]

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 #216

I finally give you my interview with a critic about critics! I recorded this with Matt Paprocki in July when I was returning from TennoCon and I’ve been waiting to release this with the new site. Since the new site is up, here you go!  As much as I might have railed on critics in […]

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 […]

Give Me My Damn Headphone Jack

I don’t understand this move away from headphone jacks. I like Bluetooth just fine. I have two Bluetooth headphones that work perfectly and I have a number of Bluetooth keyboards that I use on various PCs.   But when it comes to Bluetooth and phones, the drawbacks still outweigh the benefits. Bluetooth headsets are always […]

My studio overhaul is finally complete

This renovation completion was a long time coming, but it’s finally finished. When my father-in-law offered me a large, corner desk, I decided that I needed to get my butt in gear and finish it off.  So after adding the drop ceiling, installing new lights, installing new carpet tiles, and moving that beast of a […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #214

I’m really hoping that this is the last podcast before the big Widescreen.org overhaul. It’s actually done except for one page where I’m trying to use a function that my web hosting company hasn’t updated since the Jurassic. They’ve been told about it and they’ve started to make some upgrades, but I’d like to wait […]
