speaking of nerds, the only reason I got any of the sets is because I've seen enough episodes of onlyconnect to know that if you're sure about two, systematically mashing every combination containing them is a viable strategy if you have no honor

16 tiles - the 2 you're certain about = 14 remaining
14 choose 2 = 91 possible combos
mashing a combo only takes about a second with a touchscreen, maybe a little more, but you'll probably find it well before exhausting every combo, so ballpark a minute and a half

doing that once reduces the pool to 12 tiles, so if you're sure about 2 more
10 choose 2 = 45

that leaves you about 30 seconds to figure out the remaining two, which is about what I had. and I was like aaaaaaaa

I got to this uh, theme, starting out thinking I'd be too clever by far and come up with categories where three members would obviously seem to fit together and the fourth one would be a red herring for another category.

so I started out with spoiler because I could make them seem like spoiler, and I was about to try and make spoiler the red herring of that group, next creating the category on which my entire puzzle is based, but then realizing that it wouldn't work because spoiler.

Not bad! Especially if you didn't have to pay any of the tabling fee. Especially if you didn't go to a print shop and order 1000 stickers.

I'm doing a small press event soon (just a few days left to finish the other half of my master copy, do final layout changes, hit the self-serve copy machine, fold and staple...) and I won't be surprised if I don't make back the modest half-table fee. But isn't it nice when someone wants to take something you made home with them?

i watched roger and me by michael moore last night and i really REALLY liked it :D

is there any other filmmakers like him? or movies that are kinda similar to that. i never really liked documentaries much but i love how human michael moore's films feel with all the interviews with random dudes. granted, i've only seen his first two, the rest seem to be on much less like, human issues i guess is how i'd put it?

what movies have u guys been watching?

Me and the girlfriend watched a Dolly Parton documentary yesterday and it was wholly unremarkable. Very little information that can't be gleaned from a quick glance at Wikipedia and celebrity talking heads that existed only to say "wow isn't she great"

i hate documentaries like that!

you get alot of them on UK tv where it's about a celebrity and they just jerk their lil dick off so hard

the worst one i saw was about bradley walsh (a star who i think is pretty unknown outside of britain and ireland), and not only do they jerk him off and massage his balls but they also have HIM ON to talk about how cool HE IS

random dudes department:

Off the Charts: The Song-Poem Story: ok so basicyl there were/are these companies that would take out ads in the back of magazines like "we want your lyrics! send em in! we'll turn them into a song!" regular non-musician people would then send their lyrics in, the company would go "these are great! we'll put it on a record for you if you pay us," and then the lyrics writers would go "ok." the lyrics could be bad, bizarre, or boring, and the musicians were basically just trying to please the customer, not make a star songwriter out of them. anyway it's a good doc because the filmmakers talk both to some song-poem writers (usually people who are compelled to make music but can't play a lick) and to some of the mysterious session musicians who (dubiously) make dreams come true

forum moderator scooby doo gang vs. single random dude department:

Resurrect Dead: 2011 documentary that mostly gets to the bottom of the Toynbee tiles, which were these guerilla linoleum tiles that said "TOYNBEE IDEA IN MOVIE '2001 RESURRECT DEAD ON PLANET JUPITER" that would be randomly embedded in streets and crosswalks. they were mostly in the northeastern US but were also scattered as far afield as their creator could manage. I dunno if I can adequately express the experience of seeing a Toynbee tile in a crosswalk, without any context, and thinking "wtf does this mean and how did they embed it in the street like that," and just... not having any of the answers for years. the toynbeeidea.com website linked from Wikipedia is associated with the filmmakers, so you could also browse that and learn a lot of what's revealed in the doc, but it's the kind of doc that strived to have a camera rolling while pieces fell into place live, so there's that

celebrity doc department:

The Eyes of Tammy Faye: the documentary (2000) not the biopic based on the documentary (2021). if you don't know who tammy faye bakker is, she's the former wife of jim bakker, a scummy big-money tv preacher who was a punchline in the 80s and famously fell from grace for sleeping with a playboy model. and probably some other stuff i forget i wasn't alive then. anyway Tammy Faye wears a shitton of mascara and at the time she was absolutely on this prosperity gospel TV conservative Christian commercial gravy train, and i dunno that might make you assume she's just a terrible person by default, but the documentary actually kind of makes her out to be a sympathetic character (who wears a shitton of mascara) and I thought it was interesting for that reason

I AM GONNA WATCH ALL OF THESE THANK YOU

I'm watching some NHL preseason for some reason and the Bruins goalie is named "Bussi"
lol

I think I'm legally required to root for the Sharks
they're about to play the Las Vegas "Golden Knights", which is an incredibly lame name imo. I don't even know what a Bruin is but it's better than golden knights. blegh.
I know it's only preseason and they're probably not taking it too seriously but I really hope my dudes don't lose to the golden knights, I don't think my heart could take it
