Know what I love about iMovie?...

Know what I love about iMovie? I love how it takes 4ever to import mp4 & spins the sprocket graphic over everything else u do while u wait.

@MichaelBarley man, I get chat...

@MichaelBarley man, I get chatty in the middle of the night! :)

@MichaelBarley ...to anime com...

@MichaelBarley ...to anime companies in Tokyo (where the other half of my favorite stuff comes from). It's just a question of networking.

@MichaelBarley but considering...

@MichaelBarley but considering half of my favorite stuff comes from the UK, I feel like I'd be a good fit pitching to BBC & ITV. Or...

@MichaelBarley haha, my creden...

@MichaelBarley haha, my credentials are: I've written loads, been paid for some of it, but generally my stuff is too edgy & weird for the US

@MichaelBarley for me it's b/c...

@MichaelBarley for me it's b/c Barrowman doesn't intimidate me the way some men do. His persona feels inclusive. Does that make sense?

@MichaelBarley interesting--a ...

@MichaelBarley interesting--a sort of tiered system. Makes good sense. And the quality of Torchwood matches with it's channel, I think :)

@MichaelBarley the Hartnell Wh...

@MichaelBarley the Hartnell Who's are a blast. It's amazing to see how much the new stuff still feels like the old in a lot of ways.

@MichaelBarley to me Primeval ...

@MichaelBarley to me Primeval is the perfect show to watch while doing other things. So I never spun thru an ep b/c I am always busy. :)

@Matt_Silverman I did find abo...

@Matt_Silverman I did find about 60 more GB of space just going thru & deleting duped footage I no longer need & mp4s I didn't want to keep.

@Matt_Silverman basically, I w...

@Matt_Silverman basically, I wasn't expecting to shoot as much as I have been so I haven't been organized. Cleaning house really helped :)

@Matt_Silverman thanks for the...

@Matt_Silverman thanks for the suggestion, but I'm shooting a lot of HDV so uploading that to the cloud would take a looong time.

@Matt_Silverman haha, somebody...

@Matt_Silverman haha, somebody tell @michaeljnelson @billcorbett and @kwmurphy about this! They just might be onto something with #mst3k !

RT @BreakingNews: KTNV-TV: Nevada became the 17th state to recognize the relationships of gay and lesbian couples under state law.

RT @RandomHits: RAR is on like Donkey Kong! 8 p.m. EST till 12 midnight....Tonight. See you in the shout box...

@paulswansen ah, thanks! Yeah the one thing I have less of than spare HD space is spare cash :)

this is fun--I'm desperate for HD space, so I'm digging through old HDs--I know some of them still work!

@Artomeria why do you retweet any Tweet mentioning youtube ?

@Matt_Silverman yeah, I'm sure...

@Matt_Silverman yeah, I'm sure by now everything #mst3k related is available online. But yeah, it's a great clip :)

@caliblondie and no rush on checking out the Jay TheVlog I posted on SocialKloud--that's an older one--wanted to post them all over there.

Seriously? I think I need to nod my head more. RT @caliblondie: computer knows who is in charge. [nods head]

@bateatsbat don't pick up a geeky boy at Best Buy, just pick up a Mac! That's why I'm useless dealing with viruses--I use Macs mostly.

@MichaelBarley Iron Man was be...

@MichaelBarley Iron Man was better for RDJ but w/o that story, I think it would have been worse. They were very faithful to the comic. Yay!

@MichaelBarley So you didn't l...

@MichaelBarley So you didn't like Indy 4? The bar was set pretty low for me, so I enjoyed it. Tho I didn't care for what happens to Cate.

@MichaelBarley it's actually a...

@MichaelBarley it's actually a fantasy of mine to write for Doctor Who. I know it's silly for an American to think he ever could, but I do.

@MichaelBarley gotta admit to ...

@MichaelBarley gotta admit to having a man-crush on John Barrowman, too. Love how he plays Jack. My favorite is his original Dr Who 2-parter

@MichaelBarley so, yeah, looki...

@MichaelBarley so, yeah, looking forward to "Torchwood: Children of Earth" I think that's the title. Doesn't matter, I'll watch it. :)

@MichaelBarley series 2 Torchw...

@MichaelBarley series 2 Torchwood was muuuch better--tighter stories, more interesting characters and yay characters die! Cool!

@MichaelBarley Torchwood serie...

@MichaelBarley Torchwood series 1 didn't do much for me--seemed wobbly story/character-wise. Not sure Russell knew what he wanted to do w/it

@MichaelBarley but series 3 Pr...

@MichaelBarley but series 3 Primeval has actually gotten waaaay better. It's actually a borderline reasonable scifi action show now.

@MichaelBarley I'm a big fan o...

@MichaelBarley I'm a big fan of Who, too. Been slowly dragging through the show from the beginning. One the 21st storyline with Hartnell :)

@MichaelBarley haha! I got hoo...

@MichaelBarley haha! I got hooked on Primeval *b/c* it was bad. Listening for the "wilhelm" in every ep was fun to do & the crappy CGI=fun.

@MariAdkins haha, no, it's a n...

@MariAdkins haha, no, it's a new tech that hasn't been implemented yet--lasers etch into the filament to make them burn more brightly.

ThePhlog: My Favorite Noise Adam Savage Makes On Mythbusters (@donttrythis this is for you!)

Ah, Mythbusters! You are my favorite show on TV! Well, you're tied with Daily Show, but still...

Anyway, so the other night, Siskita and I were watching a recent episode of Mythbusters and I realized how much I really appreciate co-host Adam Savage's enthusiasm for the myths. It's probably what I identify with most about the show, frankly, so I decided to record this minute-long audio clip in honor of Adam Savage, fellow knowledge-geek:

Originally recorded: 11.48pm EDT, 28 May 2009 - New York, NY

Listen!
