Fantasy Flying

Keeping with our regime of social distancing we called an out and return task south to the Fantasy of Flight thereby eliminating (hopefully) putting pilots together in a retrieval vehicle.The forecast was for light winds but few if any cu's. The cu forecast was much better than the two previous days, but there was still this layer of dry air above 4,000' that would mean as the inversion rose the cu's would thin out. Their depth would already be quite minimal.The cu's did form in the morning...

The Best Sketch Comedian Online Now

Sure, everything’s online now, but some comedians have been doing the work for a much longer time than the last two weeks. They didn’t need to adjust “because they were already there, particularly those in the growing genre of ‘front-facing camera comedy’: short character sketches played directly to the camera. Owing a debt to the hectic editing of Tim and Eric and the influence of the defunct six-second-or-less platform Vine, these videos have gone viral for years, but with comedians and audie...

Citizens of Colorado – Stay At Home #DoingMyPart

Governor Jared Polis had an excellent and extremely data-driven press conference yesterday to provide quantitive support for his stay at home order (among other things.) The presentation is embedded and worth paging through. from The basic message is that unless it is absolutely necessary for you, please stay at home to prevent the spread of the virus. While it is frustrating and constraining in the short term, if you stay at home, your actions will contribute to saving...

Beef House Review

On ‘Beef House,’ Family Sitcoms Get the Tim and Eric Treatment

Other sports no. 3: Don King and the 45 minute answer

It was the week before the Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.I'd been at the first fight when Holyfield had pulled off a major upset by stopping Tyson in the eleventh round, even though beforehand there was a concern that Evander might actually die in the ring. He had been diagnosed with a heart condition that he now claimed had been cured by a faith healer.As a piece of sporting theatre it was the most exciting thing I'd seen. Afterwards both fighters cam...

Cowboy museum security on social

Museums around the world may be closing to promote social distancing, and for some museum staff, that means assuming new roles in this unprecedented situation. At the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Tim is the head of security. Now that the museum is closed, however, Tim was given the added responsibility of managing the museum’s social media account — and the result is hilarious. View this post on Instagram ...

Making The Cut Review – Heidi & Tim’s New Adventure Is Everything Fans Could Want

When Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn parted ways with the show that made them cultural juggernauts, there was a certain sense of disbelief, but as they return to the fashion reality show world with Making the Cut, it makes a lot of sense. That is perhaps most especially true in the case of Tim Gunn, who gives the impression of being a person who wants things to progress. While there is a familiarity in structure, there are a lot of differences, and they push the effort to the next level. In many ways...

Coronavirus: Brand Moves for Friday March 20

Google Chrome extension Netflix Party which adds a social, sharing element to watching streaming video – a development that is obviously much needed in these times of self-isolation – has experienced a massive boost in popularity over the last few weeks. The extension (an unofficial add-on, with no connection to Netflix) works by showing your requested video, but with a bar down one side for your user group to comment and chat. It’s a very interesting development, bringing the ‘watercooler mome...

Tim Heidecker’s Call-In Show Is The Only Thing Keeping Me Sane Right Now

Social distancing definitely sucks, and this is a godsend We’re at the very beginning of a societal lockdown anticipated to be in effect for two weeks minimum, possibly more, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While postponing major sports seasons, music festivals, live shows, any television program recorded with a studio audience, and staying holed up at home are extremely necessary measures to take, there’s no denying that this shit is boring, man.

Tuesday Coronavirus Recap: Awaiting Congressional Action and More Layoffs

Before I do a recap, I want to share a hopeful tidbit. My friend Tim plays the bagpipes. For the last few years, St. Patrick’s Day (and the weekend) is his favorite time because his band rents a bus and tours pubs across Connecticut. Suffice to say, there was no pub crawl yesterday. But after the workday, we got a text. Come to the street at 5:30 p.m. Stay in your car. And at 5:30 p.m., out waltzed Tim in his full garb playing the bagpipes — at a safe social distancing distance — for neighbors a...

Listen: ‘Whiplash’ Soundtrack Deluxe Edition Remixes a Classic; Plus, An Interview with Composer Justin Hurwitz

A couple of months ago, when we were putting together our “best of the decade” coverage at /, I not only put Whiplash on my list of 10 personal favorites of the past ten years, but I also highlighted the film’s climactic drum solo as one of the best movie moments of the entire decade. It’s a dynamic, cathartic, visceral piece of filmmaking from writer/director Damien Chazelle, but it also raises an interesting question: if the end result of immense suffering for your art is that you bec...

‘Extra Ordinary’ Star Will Forte on His Favorite ‘SNL’ Sketches, His Terrible Irish Accent, and the Status of the ‘MacGruber’ TV Series [Interview]

Comedy icon Will Forte received his first few breaks in Hollywood as a writer more than 20 years ago. The scribe soon discovered that he was equally adept as an actor, becoming an instant star in the public eye on Saturday Night Live ( SNL ), to which he graduated from the legendary Groundlings Theatre & School in Los Angeles. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. Forte would dominate the comedy scene in the 2000s and 2010s, acting in noteworthy features such as Beerfest , Fan...
