Pinned toot

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]

Working at the virtual copy desk means telling the higher-ups that "tit-for-tat" is being scrubbed by their profanity filter

I didn't 100% grasp the hornt implications of this toot because (a) on the hornt/wholesome continuum, I lean wholesome (though admittedly quite vulgar at times), and (b) I just think a dude with that name is very funny.

Maybe this is the year I start repping Quebec at the movies and just jam all of Denis CΓ΄tΓ©'s stuff

Hell of a bass player, too. Also shout out to Wendy Matthews with the big assist on this record in particular.

When we talk about the great Linn LM-1 users, we should speak of Hiroshi Sato in the same breath we do Giorgio Moroder or Prince. youtu.be/zFsbW5d6osc

Good morning, Party People, let's do it to it

I'm happy to announce that I've been cast in Denis Villeneuve's Dune as Man Who Yells at the Spice #2

Sometimes you wake up with a song in your head that kind of just sets the tone for the day. open.spotify.com/track/3OjQfS3

Was your shitty teen poetry smeared in blood or grease?

Theory: you're either a broke Tim Burton kid from the boonies or a broke pro wrestling kid from the boonies
