Allow me to reintroduce myself.

My name is Derek. I'm an internet old-timer who lives in , and I am the founder and admin of laserdisc.party, the video store of the fediverse (or so I like to think).

And while I do talk lots about (went to grad school, wrote a thesis on The Room and Snakes on a Plane, have a film-crit website and two movie podcasts), I'm just as likely to talk about , , , and your garden variety comedic nonsense.

Welcome!

I'm going to copy my list over from dot-social.

- copywriting/copy editing
- translation (πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§β†”οΈπŸ‡«πŸ‡·)
- film history and criticism
- subtitling/closed captioning
- the fundamentals of podcasting
- wrestling appreciation
- Magic: The Gathering 101
- real basic graphic design stuff, like posters and such
- shooting the shit
- your garden-variety chorin' [local only]

One day, maybe someday soon, you will be doing the dishes or tidying up your desk, and the chorus to Ice Cube's "You Can Do It" will swiftly take over every square inch of your brain, and on that day, we will be kindred spirits.

Good afternoon Party People, a key part of my work's IT architecture is down and I can't get any work done wheeeeeeeeee

Listened to Beck's Sea Change end to end for the first time today. That is some primo sad bastard music right there, I tell you what.

I’ve been working on a way for us to really award Laserdisc Oscars and I think I came up with m a system that would work- would anyone be interested in doing Laserdisc Emmys so we can test this thing out?

It's less visually dazzling than Mind Game or Night Is Short but it's also the most nakedly emotional of his joints

Yuasa probably had a lot of water material after Lu Over the Wall and went "What if I run this back but as a romantic dramedy about grief"

Happy to announce that Ride Your Wave is fantastic

Derek boosted

l.p meta 

Good morning Party People, we are broadcasting live from the press line for the North American premiere of Ride Your Wave, the latest by Masaak Yuasa (aka the director of l.p favourite Night Is Short, Walk on Girl)

I 100% forgot I had a matinee to attend at Fantasia in like nine hours, but that's an L I'm willing to take.

if anybody asks, it was MARDU AGGRO BABY

I whipped ass at Magic and shot the shit at an Irish pub and read my poetry to my friends on the walk home HALL OF FAME EVENING BOY-OS

Derek boosted

alert Party People, Night of the Hunter will be leaving the Criterion Channel at the end of the month

me, to some jagoff with a 7 dan pro ranking cutting me in line at Popeye's: yeah well you can "GO" to HELL
