In the last two shoots and fifteen seconds of Hal Needham’s HOOPER, Burt Reynolds mugs to camera not once, not twice, but THREE times.

Also:

Hooper was also one of the first movies to make use of the blooper reel credit crawl. The technique, originated by Needham,[citation needed] showed a smaller screen of outtakes from the film to one side while the film’s credits scroll slowly up the other side. Needham refined this technique for later films such as Smokey and the Bandit II and the Cannonball Run movies. (In Hooper the credit reel was mostly a montage of many of the stunts performed in the movie itself, owing to the film’s tribute to the stunt industry.) It was later adapted into other films, including the CGI animated Toy Story 2 and A Bug’s Life, for which the bloopers were intentionally created, and in TV series including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Airand Home Improvement. Most of Jackie Chan's films also feature blooper reel credit crawls, due to his experience in The Cannonball Run.

Goodnight, Hal. You were a goddamn legend.

★★★★★ Songs! ★★★★★

It’s like the meta-meta-Good Part.
While 1.96E6 milliseconds (~32.75 minutes) would still get into “Mega” territory, I am loath to call this a “Megamix" as cuts are pretty much kept in roughly chronological order by original appearance for ease of potential future consultation, even though a part of me thinks everyone probably SHOULD go through all 50 episodes to find bit context as a regular aural exercise. Because it WOULD be nice to sort all the Tom Waits stuff together, right? I’ll leave it. 

(Scrubs for intra-episode cuts; Fanfares for inter-episode disambiguation.)

I think I got the embed right this time! ¡¡¡ !!!
[I’ve already noticed gaps, so it’s not exactly comprehensive.  But it couldn’t be anyhow, not with certainty. (i.e., MAYBE the last eppo is gonna be all singings, eh?  Many many singings.  I’m in no rush.  That’d be okay by me.) I love it.]

Sometimes, there are projects that are super indicative of how much one dreads other projects on one’s desk.  And there are projects that are just acts of …secret audio reference librarian auto-comforting.  And the synergy, when you add in a need to sort all the like things that one likes in one place?  Oh, it can be magical.      

(I believe Songs in the Key of Springfield was one of the last cassettes I purchased in the 90’s.)

Last week it was my pleasure to tell jokes for 500 or so nerds as part of the live taping of John Gruber’s The Talk Show.

And it was my double-extra-creamy pleasure to unveil, with the help of my YLNT buds Adam and Merlin, a proposal for the future of language.

(Also maybe this is the dumbest thing I have ever written. Sandwich and Merls kind of saved it.)

There’s no way I’m the only person that immediately pictured this while listening to the episode.

That’s right, it’s Adam in a luxurious bathtub with a copy of The Fountainhead. Listen to the new episode of You Look Nice Today to find out how YOU can get in there with him.

The Internet is Eating Me: To A Fishstick Dying Young

jimmymarks:

As we near the inevitable conclusion of You Look Nice Today, my feelings become too much to bear. And when that happens, you get poetry. What follows is my lament for one of the greatest podcasts of all time.

Where now is Tang Tang and rider, my son?
When comes the train to Dubai?
Where is…

Oh, Jimmy. Jimmy Jimmy. Thanks for this, Jimmy.

Cherry-Picking Pop Music's 'Good Parts' : All Songs Considered Blog : NPR

You Look Nice Today, one of my favorite podcasts, had the same thought a few years ago. The show is a free-form conversation with one consistent theme: At some point, one of the three hosts will pitch the others a business proposal for an imaginary product. In the 2009 episode, “The Good Part,” that product was a song made entirely out of the best moments from other songs —- beginning with “In the Air Tonight” and cycling through two dozen more.

Thanks a million, Daoud. You’re a gentleman, and we’re very proud to count you as a fan. High Five.
