Over the years fanediting, I have forgiven bad editing in movies for the most part, given that those editors are under deadlines, whereas we faneditors have the luxury of hindsight and ample time to really work the movies into our vision.

Now that all these movies are being delayed due to Covid related issues, there is ample time for directors and editors to hone that movie into a work of art, a luxury not afforded to most big budget projects. There will probably always be however, too many cooks in the kitchen.

I wonder if the set of movies that release when things like WW1984 come out will be noticeably better quality overall due to all the extra time then have now.

I have wondered the past several months if Rise of Skywalker would have been ultimately improved or left as-is, as it was insanely rushed and there were countless re-shoots.

Posted to Facebook by a supervisor at my old catering company, which usually runs massive holiday parties for Google, Facebook, etc.: "So, is this how 'regular' people spend December? How boring. Stay safe."

San Francisco gets its biggest earthquake in years shortly before 6AM on New Year's Eve 2020... because of course it does. Given 2020, I guess we should just be grateful it wasn't The Big One. :p

Happy New Year to all. May it be full of good health, effective vaccines, honorable heads of state, and happiness for the lot of ya! :D

Welp, I've got the 'Rona, confirmed via test. Day 6 of mild symptoms: minor sore throat, with some fatigue and shortness of breath earlier in the week. Since I'd only visited my parents in the relevant time frame, who didn't seem to give it to me, I figure it was either the elevators in my apartment building or Safeway wot done the deed. Seeing as I'm applying for work at the moment, a brief and mild illness isn't a big deal to me personally; I just hope I don't get any of that long-term pulmonary and/or cardiac scarring we've been hearing about in even seemingly low-key cases...  :dodgy:

2020's all like: "Miss me yet?"

Speaking in my official capacity as a 2021 COVID-19 infectee: "Oh, hell no, 2020, you stay gone now and forever!"  :p
