The Widescreen Podcast #223

Sometimes I really hate the way that people pronounce things, particularly the way my fellow Americans pronounce “router”. There’s also a great deal of hypocrisy regarding a certain acronym that drives me up the wall when it’s mispronounced … and why.  On a separate note, there is still a sliver of hope for those of […]

The Widescreen Podcast #222

What are you doing here? You should be going to widescreen.org for this! Meh, what do I care. It’s like when kids mash things together at dinner that probably don’t belong together: it all goes to the same place anyway. CES has made it clear that TVs are pretty much at their peak. Sure, there […]

The Widescreen Podcast #221

Joyous new arbitrary orbital period around our nearest stellar body! And, hey, I actually did a podcast only a week after the previous one! Shocking, I know! I was not surprised at all to hear that ISP abuses of customers due to the revoking of Net Neutrality were happening. I was surprised to learn that Comcast […]

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 […]

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 #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 #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 […]

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 […]
