Tonight on GeekNights, we review with our guest Emily Compton the wonderful Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Scott geekbites The Walking Dead (TV), and Rym remembers the days of anime clubs as Mike Toole reminds us why we used to join them.
Below is the entire text of the Constitution of the Geeknights Podcast, as it currently stands.
I want to watch Cool World
Attendance is still pretty good, they still have a lot most meetings. Haven't been in a while, but it's still getting good attendance. The people in charge seem mostly cool, but their taste is...Ehhhhhhh. They showed Pumpkin Scissors, and the people in charge seemed to think it was good...

They showed Pumpkin Scissors, and the people in charge seemed to think it was good...Sounds like the early years of the club where we had to fight to get them to stop showing Shoujo every week :-p
But they still let people vote...I mean...First rule of a good anime club, it's a dictatorship. Letting people vote is a recipe for disaster. I learned this all the way back in HIGH SCHOOL Anime Club...College students running an Anime club should know better.
The E-Board seems extremely inclusive. I don't intend to deal with other people's random shit. That's their bullshit. Quite frankly, I'm too busy to work at making the Anime Club better. I have a life outside of all that. I'm sad that it's not as awesome as the Golden Age of the FRC, but that is in 0 ways my problem. Also, they never polled anyone at all except that one week. There's no removing/reworking the current establishment until the end of this year, and I have too much to do to worry about it.So, mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Wow, we had Media Play back then. Remember going to Media Play to hang out and browse the anime section?
They closed down, though...:(
On the topic of preservation of media in the mid-late 1900's, aren't there even 1 or 2 early Superbowls that weren't even recorded? Put that in perspective. One of the biggest TV events ever wasn't even saved when it first started.
Much to the dismay of television historians, all known broadcast tapes which recorded the game in its entirety were subsequently destroyed in a process of wiping, the reusing of videotape by taping over previous content, by both networks. This was due to the idea that the game wasn't going to become what it did, plus videotapes were extremely expensive back then. This has prevented contrast and compare studies of how each network handled their respective coverage. Despite this, television and sports archivists remain on the lookout, and at least two small samples of the telecast survive: a recording of Max McGee's opening touchdown and Jim Taylor's first touchdown run (Packers' second touchdown), both were shown on HBO's 1991 two-part sports documentary, Play by Play: A History of Sports Television.NFL Films had a camera crew present, and retains a substantial amount of film footage in its archives, some of which has been released for home video and cable presentations.
