I haven't seen the new Borat,yet but the soundtrack is incredible. And I learned of a new genre of music (Balkan Brass).
I just got Disney+ because it was free for three months.First impressions:
"The World according to Jeff Goldblum" is hilarious.
The app sucks on a FireTV Stick. I watched two episodes plus Wall-E and the stream stopped at least five times because of "slow internet speed". But according to my router it only uses 10 Mbits (of the available 35) and I almost never have issues with YouTube or Netflix. The app also was slow and foze or crashed several times.
Next will be Mandalorian APT probably.
Best thing I heard this week:
Apparently they didn't rehearse it, just saw him standing at the edge of the stage (he had played on the same stage earlier) and asked him to join in. 😁
I watched the PS5 thing even though I have never owned a Playstation and don't plan on buying the new one. So I'm happy that not all games they showed will be Playstation exclusives. I already new Oddworld: Soulstorm would be multi platform but I just found out that "Kena: Bridge of Spirits" (the one with the little black Ghibli looking creatures) will come to PC as well!
So, we all know that Fraser, Becky & Co. did Let's Plays and reaction videos before it became mainstream, put more effort into their set up than a lot of more successful streamers but only reach a relatively modest audience.
Do you know more examples like this? Mine is Ami Yamato, who was pretty much the first vtuber when she started vloging in 2011 and has only about 150.000 subscribers on YouTube.
Currently watching the Mario Bros.3 stream and Fraser talking about speed running reminded me of this video about Breath of the Wild speed runs:
After watching it I was thinking "This was fun but a bit over the top". Then I watched an actual speed run and it was almost exactly the same 😂
@FarFromSubtle I'm watching today's Show and Trailer right now. Is it actually 8 hours long!? That has to be the longest one so far.
The modern video distribution market is really weird sometimes. If I want to watch Detective Pikachu I can buy the Bluray for 11€ or buy it on a million different VoD platforms for 14€. Renting it is not an option anywhere (I had the same issue when I wanted to watch Venom a few months ago).
Luckily the old video rental website I used in the past is still around. They will send me the Bluray for a week for 2€ + 1.90€ postage (including return shipping) 😁
