This week on the podcast: we chat with Canadian film maker Teresa Alfeld about her documentary Doug and the Slugs and Me.

Both of Joe and I listened to (and loved) Doug and the Slugs when the Canadian band was popular. (Yes, we're of a certain vintage.) Teresa’s best friend growing up was Shea Bennett, the daughter of Doug Bennett. Later, she heard how great they were and decided to make a movie about it!

I find myself with the puzzling conundrum of figuring out how far my protagonist would have to walk circa 1990 to find a pay phone. She's in an apartment complex, and I can't remember if pay phones were common within the grounds of those places. I have vague memories that there were phones in the pool area of one I lived in, but I'm not sure I trust them. I remember having to walk to a corner gas station about a mile or so away.

Grand Deceptions (1989) sees Columbo probing murder at a military think-tank. The highlights include another tantalising glimpse of the Lieutenant’s first name (Frank) on an evidence bag - and the surprise appearance of a Columbo toy soldier in the closing frames. Otherwise it’s arguably an episode that promises more than it delivers - and the gotcha seemed a bit too elaborate, and possibly a little dull… what do you think? www.speckled.band #columbo #peterfalk #television #TV #1980s #80s

A parody of the Transformers toys' tech cards that used to come on their boxes. This one lists the "tech specs" of a song by artist Blue Nagoon called "Highway 101."
A tech card from the box of a Transformers toy from the 1980s. These cards show an illustration of the Transformer inside, a description of it, and a graph showing its characteristics such as strength, intelligence, and speed.

@cabel I was also a #1980s kid #DAK fan. Thank you so much for the deep dive into our shared gadget-pitching obsession.

- More shoes, more boots, more garlic.

#Bales2023FilmChallenge November 8: someone #cooking something special for #CookSomethingBoldDay

After boiling for five hours in a concoction of #garlic, #herbs, and stock, the shoe was ready to eat and #Herzog could keep his promise to fellow director Errol Morris. This is Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe (1980).

#Herzog preparing his left shoe in #AliceWaters' restaurant kitchen. There are three bulbs of garlic next to a large aluminium pan. Stuffed in the shoe some parsley and an onion. Herzog adds a generous amount of hot sauce.

Did you know there are mysterious blobs deep within the Earth? 🌎🦠😲

In the #1980s, geophysicists discovered two continent-sized blobs of unusual material deep within the Earth, which could be buried relics from an ancient #planet called Theia. New #research from #Caltech provides evidence supporting the theory that the blobs are remnants of #Theia, which collided with #Earth and formed the #Moon. 🌍💥🌝

Are the remains of an ancient planet deep inside Earth?

Wishing Adam Ant a very #HappyBirthday today! Now, to make this post all about ME... Here I am (standing behind Ginger Coyote with her armful of 'zines) in this fab #photo by Chester Simpson! Everyone wanted to personally say "hello" to Adam following the group's press conference. Or, as those of us from "Idol Worship" did, plant ourselves next to him & ask more questions, like: "What would your dream date be?" "Dinner with Dolly Parton," he answered. ❤️

Black & white pic of Adam Ant sporting his Kings of the Wild Frontier-era look, standing behind a table & besieged by earnest looking college newspaper journalists & punk rock fanzine writers. I'm the little white girl with lots of bangs & big wide eyes who is just one person away from bothering Adam!

Thanks to Reagan's deregulation of broadcast rules in the #1980s (which was why #cartoons suddenly all became ads for toys, candy or whatever), I think my generation was the last that anyone tried to teach (at least on a mass basis) via TV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_fOG4J_TRk

Paul Crenshaw says there was a pervasive sense of fear for kids growing up in 1980s America, born of stranger danger, the murder of "America's Most Wanted" host John Walsh's son Adam, and the Satanic panic. He explores these ideas in this essay for Salon; he has also written a new book of essays, "Melt with Me: Coming of Age and Other '80s Perils."

Very interesting video from 1987, showing how effective computer graphics, UI and input concepts were already thought out and realized before the 1970s microprocessor revolution.

Well... painting that, and if the Gunstar print goes about as well as I hope, I'll also be printing a stand for it, and I'd like to sell the Gunstar and stand when finished and painted.

Here's an earlier copy (my desk model):

Well, I tried that, and.... damn, I think I'll be keeping this one as an original "Flight of the Navigator" inspired alien ship. Maybe even print it out. Maybe print it out in the next hour.

It's such a wacky mesh, and I constructed it the strangest ways. Topology looks real nice, though. All contiguous quads.

Hello everyone, this is my #introduction. I'm a 30 something software/tech worker. Pixel art and 1980s animation are my comfort foods and VHS tapes and synth pop are always on the menu. I'm an anime enjoyer and a retro gamer. I'm hoping to meet some cool people, so I'm going to be actively posting instead of lurking.

Also, I've been studying Japanese for a while but it's a struggle.

Now, ooooon the other hand, this ship is so sick. It morphs between these two forms, the sharper one for high speed maneuvering. God bless reflection mapping.

....and that's when I fell into another CG hole. This was Omnibus, after they bought the Foonly F1 from Triple-I, but before they clusterfucked the CG industry. They already had employees from Digital Effects, though. Faskinating.

The same ship, but shaped differently, flying very quickly over water. It's super pointy now.

The cult sci-fi TV show 'The Tripods' marched onto BBC 1 screens on this day in 1984.

I loved the whole series.

Who remembers them?

The KoalaPad was a graphics tablet released in 1983 for the Apple II, TRS-80, Atari 8-bit family, Commodore 64 and PC-compatibles.

I didn't own the pad, but I did dabble with the accompanying Koala Painter pixel editor on my Commodore 128, making my first steps to becoming a game pixel artist. 👾
