@JakeGould I heard that the new Lego Movie has an anti-consumerist theme, but geez, I didn't realize that concept extended into the production too!
  Sun. 2/9/14 8:43pm P-90:

@JakeG.: Did you hear about the big-budget Hollywood Lego movie with Will Farrell? (or was it Colin?)
"RAID 5" is a Linux thingie. isn't it?

  Sun. 2/9/14 8:51pm Carmichael:

Great playlist so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/9/14 8:53pm Eyepatch Fox:

Thanks. This is a set where I get to be interrupted by the music and instead of doing the responsible computer things I end up closing my eyes and dancing in slow motion! :D Wheeeeeeee!
Avatar Sun. 2/9/14 8:57pm JakeGould:

@P-90: “"RAID 5" is a Linux thingie. isn't it?” Not really. It’s a way of setting up a hard drive array for any system. But I am not offended! Also, yeah I heard about the major Hollywood Lego movie. Kinda shocked how it seems like society is rallying around that film as if it is one of the greatest films on Earth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/9/14 8:57pm Daniel Blumin:

Thanks CC! Happy officerating! Slow motion dancing Sunday night is perfect, EF!

@JakeGould I think people are just pleasantly surprised they liked something that they thought they had legitimate reasons to gripe about without ever seeing.
  Sun. 2/9/14 9:03pm P-90:

@JakeG: I see it now on my viso-screen, a standard method for linking multiple independent disk drives, to get the most out of the sum of the parts. Interesting indeed.
@LegoMovie: Yes, the buzz about the movie was minimal before it opened, don't think folks expected much. Now there's mondo buzz about how it's so profound that adults are weeping by the end
Avatar Sun. 2/9/14 9:04pm JakeGould:

I think all of the adult “Lego Movie” reviews should say, “I went to this kid’s movie on Saturday afternoon with my kids & instead of falling asleep, I actually stayed awake for the whole thing!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/9/14 9:05pm Andrew Waterloo:

Not like there's any shortage of cheap movies made after certain products or Saturday morning cartoons got popular.

  Sun. 2/9/14 9:07pm P-90:

@LegoMovie: but they're saying: "weeping". Actual widespread "weeping." By the grown-ups. Dudes even.
They're saying Oscar for Will Farrell and Best Picture maybe?
Avatar Sun. 2/9/14 9:10pm phil:

saw the MVO show last night at Output. not an exciting live performance, but it sounded great on that system. unfortunately, they made everyone, including ticket holders, stand out in the cold for at least half an hour at the door for no reason (it wasn't sold out) so i missed part of his show and whoever was on before him-legowelt, maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/9/14 9:10pm Santos L Halper:

@jake re: Lego. Yes I went with kids, but was crying with laughter like I haven't since heyday of Simpsons and MST3K. It's legit, and has a great message to boot.
  Sun. 2/9/14 9:11pm P-90:

@Santos L. Halper: you out there? You saw it, wanna "halp" us out? Don't be shy, there's certainly storage space on the perpetual server for a mini-review of this "milestone".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/9/14 9:11pm Ike:

My favorite Sochi moment? That was when the murdered zombies of stray dogs rose up en masse, descended on the Kremlin, and ate Pootin's brains. Oh wait, that was just in my fevered imagination.
  Sun. 2/9/14 9:12pm P-90:

@Santos: sorry, you stepped up before I posted my request

P-90, one day some intern will be tasked to parse through the files on the server to see what they can glean..
  Sun. 2/9/14 9:13pm P-90:

...some day they may clone a small army of interns to comb through the files...

I'm gonna admit something right now, while I was watching figure skating last night I was also switching back to Jackass 3.5. I'm not ashamed, no. You might even say that it's also beautiful and athletic in it's own way.

good choice
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/9/14 9:40pm Daniel Blumin:

P-90, this is either ridiculous or sublime, but prolly both! Great dancin and awkward singing. Campy as hell. A choir that's made up of fellas that look like they were there back in the KGB days of Brezhnev. Plus the youthful fun-loving lads that represent the best in what the new Russia has to offer protestors - a punch in the head and some quality time behind bars; and I'd say that this opening ceremony ode to gettin lucky is "straight" up in violation of that there law they got cookin in the Supreme Soviet of Comrade Putin.

don't worry JG It's not the first time I've heard that before ;)

  Sun. 2/9/14 9:59pm P-90:

@Daniel B.: I'm floored by that Police Choir. The arrangement is actually pretty damn good, the choral singing is strong, in the Russian choral tradtional style, it's like an SNL shtick gone berserk

So: I hereby challenge you to play this on the show next week
  Sun. 2/9/14 10:00pm P-90:

Unless Pseu beats you to it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/10/14 1:44am Daniel Blumin:

Pseu's the one that clued me in, p-90! Sadlee, it ain't SNL these boys are representing, and despite the strength of the manly singing, the even manlier camp value, the trotting out of the least likely to 'get lucky', and the evident boredom of many a singer as seen from the outside, the fun quotient dims as I think of these men's direct link to the internal security apparatus and the suppression of pro-democracy demonstrations. Wonderfully campy and genuinely awkward? Absolutely. But if you don't 'get lucky' and meet some of 'em on duty in the public square, boy will the fun times turn ominous right quick. I guess that has something to do with why this video is incredible. Someone can write a book on the layers of meaning found somewhere above, beneath, and around the bemedaled masses!
On a lighter note:
Frenchee! Phil! Hallo! And thanks all fer yr Sundae night ears! A cheers to the archivists! Tune in next week fer Bill K of PAN Records!
