The first sports show will be tonight at 10pm. Check it out tonight or tomorrow. I should have a slightly improved audio version up on the website shortly after the show tonight for download (check htp://wordsfrommyface.com).

#nba   #NFL   #Rams   #aldonsmith   #kevindurant  
 
Tonight's topics: 49er's Aldon Smith arrested again, Rams giving away 100k to anyone who can guess their perfect schedule, and NBA Eastern conference playoff rundown.

We'll also have the return of the Durant Rant and Chewbacca Chainsaw of the Week Award.

Listen live at 10PM Eastern Tonight!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Words From My Face. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

PSA: Giving something an HDMI port does NOT, I repeat does NOT, make the content play in HD. That's right, adding an HDMI port to your old N64, Playstation, Sega Genesis or VCR may allow it to connect with an HDMI cable to that HDMI port on your TV, but it does not change the quality of the content. If the original system and software are only designed for 254 x 164, they will stay that way, and just get stretched on your big TV, like when you set your operating system to send 800 x 600 to your 1920 x 1080 monitor, but worse.

If you work for a laptop manufacturer and are considering using a trackpad/touchpad that utilizes an all in one design whereby all the traditional mouse buttons are incorporated into the touchpad based on where you apply pressure or click on the touchpad: Stop. Take whatever prototypes or samples you have in front of you and throw them out the window or at some dark corner of the office. Even if you someone figure out how to improve upon the functionality to make it something less than a danger to the system it is on, I will not trust it. Destroy it now.

Never look back.

From youtube, an explanation why certain features (everything apparently) aren't working right now for me:
"We are still completing the work needed to fully disconnect your channel from Google+. Connecting will be available in about 20 minutes."

Biggest problem here? I have never connected my Google+ and youtube channel. I have, instead, repeatedly said no to connecting my youtube channel and google+ account. Including about 10 seconds before seeing this message. There should be no disconnect to complete, because there was never a connection.

As I mentioned yesterday, last night was the first official show of Words From My Face, the entertainment podcast my brother and I have been working on.

In case you missed the live stream, you can still listen to the whole show on youtube here:
WFMF Entertainment: King Arthur movie, PAX East, Game of Thrones and more

You can also find the episode on the website, under Episodes, along with a downloadable mp3 version of the show (that's been cleaned up a bit too): http://wordsfrommyface.com

It's pretty hard to mistake even the gun attachment of the Wii for an actual gun, let alone the wii mote (or Wii U game pad for that matter). 

Aside from that, anyone know whether the really is a requirement for the police in this situation to announce who they are when asked?

I wonder why "ad vestitum" arguments are never mentioned with lists of fallacies.

Looks like UMG took down Lindsey Stirling's "Shadows" music video from youtube for copyright infringement, Today. To be clear, they took it down from Lindsey Stirling's channel, not from any of the channels that have re-posted it as far as I can tell. Her other videos appear to still be up on her channel as well.

Of course, the most troubling part about UMG taking down an official music video of original music on the artists official channel is the fact that UMG, as far as I can tell, does not hold the copyrights to "Shadows".

Apparently, UMG specifically has previously cited some kind of right, due to contract agreements with YouTube, to have content removed that UMG does not have the copyrights to (they used it against a video  megaupload produced a while back). Youtube back then came back with a statement that said they had no such right and reinstated the video that was removed but... I don't know much of the details there or how one thing happens if the other isn't true to begin with.
