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."

:D

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:

My 87 year old father (vaccinated and boosted) just recovered using Paxlovid. Had only mild symptoms. Good luck.

Our family here in Germany still has zero infections throughout the pandemic. We’re not taking any crazy precautions (we were at Oktoberfest for the German Day of Unification, for example) but we keep fully vaccinated and boosted. Next booster will be this month.

Paxlovid got me through as well, in record time.

This is the first I've heard of Paxlovid honestly. My first instinct was to make a joke about Bill Paxton, but nothing funny came to mind. Anyways, I'll look into it. Thanks guys.

Don't feel bad about work. It's just work. Unless you're a surgeon saving lives on a ticking clock, don't worry about it. While you're sick, only concern yourself with resting and getting better.
I just started the job last month, and I've already used up two and a half sick days so far. I just don't want to disappoint anyone I guess. But my boss happens to be my grandmother, and she insists that it's not a problem, so I'm probably fine.

Ha! Granny is good boss. Seriously though that sounds like US level stressing (you're in the UK, right?). Germans don’t stress about that stuff at all and my best friend here is from Sweden and he thinks Germans do stress about time off 🤣. So clearly Scandinavia is on a whole ‘nother level. But I didn’t think any of Europe was as bad as the US in the crazy pressure to work on your death bed.
