Avatar 8/15/18 6:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh Carmichael, can you handle the truth? There are dozens and dozens and dozens of other takes and mixes of almost every Beatles song, been floating out there for a long time and every now and then another surfaces...

I was there last last ever. I can't vouch for the next last ever. #groundhogday
Avatar 3:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This is a pleasurable sound, more so that Sonny and Cher and even more so than Groundhog Day's source film, 12:01 PM
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Webhamster Henry:

I see that 12:01 PM was remade. So meta.
Avatar 3:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It's remade every hour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Webhamster Henry:

There's Frederick Pohl story, "The Tunnel Under The World" that's got a reset plot point. It also has aspects of The Truman Show, and modern A/B testing, robot evil us'es, and the LEGO movie. Here it is, dramatized on X-1: archive.org...
Avatar 3:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The Truman Show's best scene IMO is much better with the extended deleted scene. Just a lot of atmosphere and him feeling paranoid, and nothing happening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Webhamster Henry:

Sometimes there are cuts so the movie theatre can show more ads. #whatisreality

This radio is the ad in between

I still have so much trouble deciding whether to watch the laserdisc close-to-original version of THX-1138 or the 2004 DVD version with much better sound but so many changes... that I still haven't rewatched it.
