Try to cancel Comcast contract? Good luck with that


I'm sure there are few Comcast customer service calls that go well. But there are probably even fewer—we hope, anyway—that go this bad.

Comcast customer Ryan Block had recently called up Comcast's customer service line to cancel his service, which is simple enough. Just not for the customer service rep Ryan Block reaches on Comcast's end.

We drop in at about 10 minutes into the call, according to Mr. Blocks description, and Comcast's rep is in full-breakdown mode. All of it, it seems, began with the question "Why is it that you don't want faster speed? Help me understand why you don't want faster internet." 

It is, in effect, the telecommunications version of the clingy ex-boyfriend, just begging you to not leave and make it all better.

He writes on Soundcloud:

The representative (name redacted) continued aggressively repeating his questions, despite the answers given, to the point where my wife became so visibly upset she handed me the phone.

This recording picks up roughly 10 minutes into the call, whereby she and I have already played along and given a myriad of reasons and explanations as to why we are canceling (which is why I simply stopped answering the rep's repeated question — it was clear the only sufficient answer was "Okay, please don't disconnect our service after all.") 

Ultimately, Mr. Block perseveres through the Comcast rep's fusillade of questions to emerge victorious, canceling his service to switch over to Astound. With any luck, his new provider will be more sensitive to his needs.

Dreamy Kitty Rotoscope Animation


So this took the better part of a year and a half to animate. Almost 7000 frames. It was very meditative...and quite the learning experience. I tried to make sure it was just a relaxing thing to do on weekends for a few hours at a time. No stress. No deadlines. Just something for me. Plus, COVID-19 was a good excuse to just chill at the computer, so why not MAKE something?

I like to imagine that this is what Pixel experiences when she goes into dreamland. Trippy abstract things she sees out the window, or stuff she catches me watching on TV. Chasing shapes and colors. Catching those time extensions to fight off the seizures and stay in this world just a little bit longer.

The most annoying part is that I had to butcher the quality and framerate to export it for YouTube. The original file on my computer runs and looks so much better, but it keeps crashing when I try to export it. Very annoying. But I promised myself I'd upload it before 2021. Rotoscope is a lot of work. I don't think I'll be doing it again anytime soon.

Line of Duty - Series 1-6 Complete Box Set Blu-ray is released on July 12th

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and one to give away.

WITH UNIVERSAL praise from critics and viewers alike, lauded as ‘The King of the crime dramas’, ‘Exhilarating, white-knuckle ride’ and ‘Thrilling entertainment’, the internationally acclaimed ratings record-breaker Line Of Duty finally gets the high-def treatment as Line of Duty Complete Series One To Six is set to be released as a bumper Blu-ray box set release.

Following its rollercoaster return to the BBC earlier this year, with its highly anticipated sixth series, the explosively thrilling TV behemoth, from award-winning scribe Jed Mercurio (Bodyguard, Bloodlands), can now be enjoyed in full on Blu-ray from 12 July 2021.

Line of Duty Complete Series One To Six Blu-ray follows the police corruption unit AC-12, made up of our favourite team as they take on ‘bent coppers’ – Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar – Blood, Broken), Detective Inspector Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure – This Is England, The Secret Agent) and Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston – The Nest, Traces).

This addictively intense police drama has earned a legion of fans with its ‘nail biting action, complex characters, and intricate plot’ (TV Guide). At anti-corruption unit AC-12, Superintendent Ted Hastings leads his team of DS Steve Arnott and DC Kate Fleming in their suspected police corruption investigations…in the process, they begin to uncover a conspiracy that reaches to the very highest echelons of the force.

Each series sees a phenomenal acting talent take on the role of the police officer being investigated and takes us on a ride that keeps us guessing with its heart-stopping interrogations and intricate plots. The show features a stand-out cast including Craig Parkinson, Neil Morrissey, Maya Sondhi, Nigel Boyle, Anna Maxwell Martin, Polly Walker and Shalom Brune-Franklin, who play some of the series’ most memorable characters. 

SERIES ONE: Lives and careers are on the line following the investigation into DCI Tony Gates (Lennie James –  Save Me, The Walking Dead)

SERIES TWO: When a police convoy is ambushed, AC-12 pursue sole survivor DI Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes – Bodyguard, It’s A Sin)

SERIES THREE: Foul play is suspected when Sgt Danny Waldron (Daniel Mays – Des, Guerilla) fatally shoots an unarmed criminal. 

SERIES FOUR: When DCI Roz Huntley (Thandiwe Newton – Westworld, Crash)) catches a serial killer, AC-12 are alerted to a possible miscarriage of justice.

SERIES FIVE: When three officers are shot during the hijack of a seized drugs haul an investigation follows, Stephen Graham (The Virtues, This is England) stars.

George Carlin - Abortion


George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, actor, author and social critic.

Carlin was noted for his black comedy and thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. He and his "seven dirty words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision affirmed the government's power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comics; one newspaper called Carlin "the dean of counterculture comedians". In April 2004, he placed second on the Comedy Central list of "Top 10 Comedians of US Audiences".
