Burnout Happens

There is defiantly such a thing as too much of a good thing. This usually is a phrase that is tethered around liquor or lavish money spending but it applies in many fields. Sometimes, responsibilities take your carefully drawn up schedule of time management and throws it squarely in the refuse bin. Try as one might to return back to square one, they are running without any hope of catching it. My meager little bit of advice is simple, enjoy the avalanche. You cannot stop the storm nor will you be able to reconstruct from the point before it. Take a step back, watch the pretty flames dance. Enjoy your time and don’t stress about what could have been. When the fire burns itself out, go in and reassess the situation. Maybe now is time to make a new schedule and begin the process of getting back into a routine. When you are speeding through a flurry of must dos just hang on,it always will slow down. Also remember no fret over lost production,lost time, loss of revenue or for simply not being able to go to that party. It will all come around and settle at the bottom. Hell, in the long run probably for the better.

Ranking Tarantino Flicks

To start off our new Rank This! series, we list something near and dear to all of us here at the BS Production House. Tune in Weekly for fun and exciting checklists of things we love and hate. If you have any suggestions, please let us know. Without further ado, Bored Shenanigans presents

Ranking Tarantino Flicks

8-Kill Bill Volume 2

Kill_bill_vol_two_ver

Coming in at number eight, is the second half of Tarantino’s love letter to the kung-fu film. Michael Madsen proves the undeniable highlight of this film. A good movie, but lacking in the masterful action that took place in the first film. Only someone like Tarantino could have a movie like Kill Bill Vol. 2 be this low on their best of list.

 7-Django Unchained

Barely squeaking out of the number six spot, the latest film to wow audiences and stir up controversy. Tarantino’s stylized American West served as a back drop for this revenge epic. Recruiting a slew of highly skilled actors, this film shines as one of his best pieces and proves that Mr. Tarantino still has the Midas touch.   

6-Jackie Brown

“Shut your raggedy-ass up, and sit the fuck down!”

This is the most under appreciated movie that resides in the Tarantino filmography. Following the hugely successful Pulp Fiction, this one some how fell through the cracks. It was a critical favorite and earned Pam Grier some much deserved recognition, but this is usually the film even most Tarantino fans have missed. A very well written and well acted piece, if you haven’t seen it, you are missing something special. 

5-Kill Bill Volume 1

Kill-Bill-Vol--1-uma-thurman-263921_888_1400

This is an action movie. This is the way they are done and this is how martial arts movies exists in the 21st Century. Ultra stylized, extra violent and truly compelling, this was the vehicle that reminds us all of how bad ass a yellow track suit is.

4-Death Proof

death proof

It is damn shame that the Grindhouse experiment didn’t go over better than it did.  If you like 70s slasher flicks and muscle cars, this is the right movie for you. One of the coolest movies rides in recent memory with a great mix of dialogue and action. This picture shows the evil genius that resides behind the camera. Paired with Planet Terror and packed full of fake trailers, this was exploitation films on a huge budget. One of the most fun works in Mr. Tarantino’s catalog.

3-Reservoir Dogs

“You gonna bark all day, little doggy? Or you gonna bite?”

This is the movie that made Tarantino a household name. What a powerhouse of a debut film. The characters in this film are so well drawn out, they seem like you have known them for years. If there were any more bad-asses on your screen, the TV would kick your ass and take your wallet. This is the heist film by which all other heist films are judged by, yet you never even see the actual heist. Rarely does something this good come along, yet it only makes number three here.

2-Inglorious Basterds

ingloriousbasterds

Tarantino doesn’t care what spell check has to say. He misspelled it on purpose and never apologized for it. This World War Two ride throws history to the curb. Over the top assassinations of Hitler, hilariously bad Italian accents, angry Holocaust survivor,  and legendary cut throat soldiers. Any number of these things would make a film phenomenal. This one combines them all along with one of the greatest villains ever put to film. Christopher Waltz transcended so deeply  into character, you forget you are watching an actor. In all sincerity, this is one of Hollywood’s finest displays of cinema.

1-Pulp Fiction

pulpfiction

This is the most quoted movie around the BS water cooler. We seriously wore a DVD out by playing it so many times. Yes it revived careers, yes it made us all want a “Bad Motherfucker” wallet. It made us all laugh when Marvin got shot in the face, and we all have our coffee with lots of cream lots of sugar. Preserved by the National Film Registry for artistic and cultural significance, this will forever go down as a classic. This movie will be torn apart and analyzed forever by film students and film critics. This is excellence reincarnated into pure awesome. Making ‘getting medieval’ a thing and it will inspire throngs of storytellers for eons.

999 Words Shy of 1000

FUCKED is what I came up with. FUCKED. Here is a picture of the problem. Its not a bad picture my screen is just that garbled. But I still think that I will have the episode up some time Tuesday.

Fun Bored Shenanigans scavenger hunt! B.S. related items are hidden in this picture of the BS Productions Command Center; try to find at least 8 (there are more like 14 if you stretch it a bit but the lighting was bad)

MY PC is FUCKD

It Blow Up and Melted

OK, so the new episode is going to be late. I hope I can get it out on Monday at some time but not sure when. If not, we will have some sort of content up so you can get your weekly fill of Shenanigans.

What is happening is my desktop is having some sort of…. I don’t know… seizure. The problem is definitely video in nature and consists of intermittently weird white squares, in almost a grid, over 2 of my 3 monitors.This happened after I updated flash but I am not convinced that is what caused it. My fear is that it is a hardware problem and not software, perhaps overheating.

So, sorry that my inconveniences became yours. Hey, so the new episode is going to be late but while you wait why not listen to an old episode and relive some of your favorite podcast memories.

Also, don’t you like the new URL, oh lord is it sexy.
