They’re working this star-shaped thing shape against Trump?
The well gone dry, huh girls? Dumbasses.
The well never goes dry! Trump creates a new, unforced error each day. It’s not as much about the star (though that is part) as the fact that the whole graphic originated in a White Supremacist chat room. That means either a Trump staffer, or the orange man-baby himself, is reading this sort of site to get material. They also clearly saw it was a mistake, or they wouldn’t have changed it to a circle.
Admit it, Mikey. Your white, bandage-face and Ralph Ellison “Invisible Man” moniker is a racist statement, and the fact that you’ve never changed it proves that you’re in the KKK. Ipso facto, ergo splat.
It’s not Ralph Ellison. It’s from the 1933 film version of H.G. Wells’ “The Invisible Man”. I used to work as a restoration specialist for the studios, preparing classic films for release to DVD.
That’s your cover story, Mr. Grand Wizard. Sure.
Sounds like a terrific way to make a living. Very cool, seriously.
So were there toxic vapors pouring out of the old celluloid as you worked? Seems that could have been a hazard.
There were indeed! Fortunately I worked in the editorial dept. and didn’t begin working the material until it had already been digitized. The shipping guys had to open the old film cans, wearing gas masks in a “clean receiving” room. Sometimes nothing but powder and a cloud of gas puffed out.
It was a very cool job for about a decade, when every job was a top quality film. Once those were restored, they moved on to less-good movies and old TV shows, which became agonizing after a few years. Watching old episodes of The A-Team 30 times scene-by-scene wasn’t my idea of fun.
That does seem pretty cool, actually. But I can imagine, after hearing the dialog from the A-team over and over, you might try to end it all. Quick question: Did Max Smart and Agent 99 ever hook up? I always wondered that…
I would like to think so as a matter of satisfying fantasy, but Chace didn’t work on that show (lol).
There are about a dozen companies in Hollyweird that do restoration, as well as places like UCLA, where students can learn to do it. The studios tried doing it themselves at first, but quickly found it cheaper to hire outsiders.
99 never did it for me. A little too Miss Hathaway-ish. And Max in the Sacks? “Missed it by THAT much.”
Cool gig, no doubt. I love the good old movies – thanks for your part in preserving them. A-Team, eh…not a fan. Frame by frame would be tortuous.
Stars, stars everywhere … I’m offended.
Rumor is next week he’ll be seen trying to buy some underage hookers in front of Trump Tower with a handful of Tubmans.
