Sundry Munday

Premiere project downgrader. Yes, this piece of information will save the lives of those around you, and keep you from serving jail time.
Here are the details of how it works.

Terry Britton on hardware mapping in Samplitude. Which is a pain in the tuchus for me at this time.

So, Auphonic is an online service for loudness normalizing audio and suchwise for podcasts. They'll do 2 hours for you per month for free. It's pretty nice really.

PaulXStretch plugin. Yeah, I know this audio stuff should go on another blog. But it isn't. So that's just how it is.

Strezov Sampling has some free drums and such.

Glivular Marimbunek

I dig Lindsay Ellis' essay on 3-act structure. Sure, I hate thinking about structure as having 3 acts, but if you're gonna call it a 3-act structure, this feels about right.

If I liked whiskey, or had an English accent, I'd be much more successful.
Audiocheck. Online audio signals to test headphones and speakers. You want to bookmark this.

Citethisforme is a site which helps you site stuff. I mean, cite stuff. You know, for writing papers.

There's a new website for the new podcast, Earthkiller.

Oh, and then Instagram for Earthkiller.

Girl in Space podcast.

Fidelity

Man, the music in Westworld is amazing. I'm not talking about the weird versions of pop songs, I mean the score by Ramin Djawadi.
The "sound design" part of the score is so sophisticated and brilliant.

We need to cast more people from more ethnicities. We need more women in lead roles. More Asian actors, more African, more Native American, Latinx, everything.

It's mostly happening in TV right now. Not nearly enough Asians in TV. And still way too many brown-haired white boys in lead roles. Not that I mind brown-haired white boys in lead roles. Some of my favorite actors are brown-haired white boys. Just, you know, sometimes we could have some non-brown-haired white boys.

Oh man. I am unsatisfied by the ending of the second season of Westworld. Ugh. C'mon, man, we're due some time in the world. At least go 10,000 years into the future and find that all the guests in the park, the support team, the guys from security, are all hosts (which is what you were leading up to anyway.) And that all the humans are all dead.
Because everything else is all Mac Rogers Universal Robots, why not just finish it?

Three things



Did I mention I was interviewed by Scriptophobic?

Rivets on the Poster also published a review of our movie Pandora Machine.

Weathering prop weapons, a step-by-step. Using sand as a mask is a pretty interesting idea.

The Shell World War III

Here's a Japanese review of Carbon Copy. In Japanese it's called something like "The Shell The Shell 3rd World War." Which might be a fairly accurate title, I don't know. I don't know how or if Japanese language handles definite articles.

Sundries

Slow Dolphin is one of those Amazon companies. They sell cheap lighting and grip stuff. Joe Lambert Mastering is a mastering facility right here in Jersey City. Camvate makes wooden camera handles and suchwise. Tim Johnson of Thinkspace has an orchestral mixing service.
Marc Mozart has a "Master Feedback Service" which seems pretty interesting. Dreamcatcher is a VFX house in Sofia.

The Sound of the Moon

I wrote a book of poetry. It's a parody of Lang Leav. It amuses me.

Ideas for the Future

1. Pick 6 Pandora Machine movies and rewrite them into six 3-episode podcasts.
    • Earthkiller
    • Clonehunter (Naomi is the framing device, it's her story.)
    • Millennium Crisis
    • Day 2 Alien Uprising
    • Pandora Machine 
    • Robot Revolution



    2. Rewrite OBE political thriller and shoot it as a Web series.
    3. Do Cassandra Protocol
    4. Do Android Insurrection II.
    5. Do future noir with HMS. Maybe tell him about it first. Probably not.
