Hi George, glad to hear from you again. Enjoy this eighties of eighties tunes:

Sorry I've been absent from this forum. I've been busy counting my money and destroying the negatives of the original versions of the trilogy and coming up with new things to digitally insert into the upcoming 40th anniversary blu-ray release.
I'm thinking Darth Vader should scream "NOOOOOOO!" when he kills Ben Kenobi and again when he chops off Luke's hand.

Lost One Hit Wonder of the 80's, it's still catchy. I like to sing with the choir:

They've been using a version of this song for the latest Apple products.. Brought back a memory or two, I had this record:

Oh, no, no, no, no, no....

I vaguely remember that show, vaguely.

Adam, you should build a TDMC Open Forum app! That would be pretty darn cool. It's easy, right? Just write few simple lines of code and you're done?

Now get to it!

  Comment #3911 by: Adam at about 02:03 on May 20, 2014
It was kind of like a Facebook-for-Riverdale-types-circa-1990s. If only I had the entrepreneurial spirit to industrialize it at the time.

  Comment #3910 by: Bob at about 19:41 on May 18, 2014
It once was all the rage. But now I check it but rarely. Even George Lucas has even stopped his yelling.

I feel quite sad that this corner of the web has nearly been abandoned.

How does that make you feel?

  Comment #3908 by: Mitchell at about 18:57 on April 13, 2014
Hi folks.

Oh boy! What a year! I hope everybody is having an excellent time with all the stuff.

  Comment #3907 by: Adam. at about 17:49 on February 20, 2014
Huh.. This still works:

My clock reads 11:55 AM Pacific Standard Time.

Hi guys -

Anybody out there got the time?

  Comment #3904 by: Adam at about 19:45 on December 23, 2013
I believe I've effectively blocked "Maggie" and "Pedro." We shall see.

  Comment #3903 by: Mitch at about 10:54 on December 10, 2013
You got it, buddy!

Hey Kids -- Help me find a Cordoba LS, like my old one:

Trick or treat!

Visit your local slum. It's worth the trip.

  Comment #3899 by: Mitch at about 14:13 on July 25, 2013
That was nice. I want more.

  Comment #3898 by: Adam Pilon at about 15:56 on July 20, 2013
Finally started digitizing some VHS tapes. Check out Mayhem Lettuce's debut concert!

Hi Bob.. Well, it turns out that I'm actually back in San Jose.... I decided to stay in California!

To answer your question about the bass in your setup -- that's a real tough environment.. But if the speakers are in the corners of the room, that amplifies bass. If you can pull the speakers away from the walls -- and perhaps elevate a bit, that should help. If you have the ability, you could "fly" the speakers -- have them aim down at the audience or fire downward -- that should help, too.

  Comment #3896 by: bo8b at about 09:17 on July 3, 2013
Adam! Saw you're on your way back to Chicago. I hope your journey is a good one. Welcome back to the lands of corn and snow!

A question for you (or anyone who knows about sound): I'm in a community choir out in Geneseo, which performs in a gymnasium. As you can imagine, the acousics in there are slightly less than ideal. It's full of reverb, but particularly in the bass frequencies. One of the numbers includes a small swing combo, and the drums (bass drum especially) is completely overpowering.

Other than reducing (or removing) any bass from the EQ, would you have any other suggestions about how to set up the amplification system so that it is less muddy in sound?

  Comment #3895 by: Adam at about 13:07 on June 27, 2013
Ah, got it. In my field of study, it was called a Capstone.

  Comment #3894 by: Mitch at about 22:24 on June 26, 2013
A very long academic paper. Takes weeks to write and is a huge pain in the ass but worth it in the end if it's any good. It better be good.

What is a Senior Inquiry?

  Comment #3892 by: Mitch at about 03:08 on June 17, 2013
Senior Inquiries are fucked. Kinda fun but fucked up.

  Comment #3891 by: Adam at about 21:26 on June 12, 2013

Adam!!! Update! Go.

  Comment #3889 by: Adam at about 12:35 on June 5, 2013
That's actually kind of clever.... and funny.

  Comment #3888 by: Mitch at about 11:22 on June 4, 2013
Quite possibly the dumbest thing on the net but I can't stop laughing

  Comment #3887 by: Adam at about 15:00 on May 30, 2013
That's as thin as you should go with your frame.

I'm back under 160 lbs. It's been a while. I like drinking heavy beers.

  Comment #3885 by: Mitch at about 13:30 on May 28, 2013
I tell people that it's a decent action movie but "Star Trek" doesn't belong anywhere near it. I've been trying to justify it for a few weeks but in my mind it still rings up as a huge joke.

  Comment #3884 by: Adam Pilon at about 11:09 on May 28, 2013
I saw Star Trek. Eh. I didn't love it. I think Abrams went a little too "Star Wars" this time around. You when C3PO was hanging off that ship in mid air flopping around? In the first Star Wars movie, he was a whimpy thing and would never do that. But with CGI, we can have him doing acrobatics.... So in Star Trek into Darkness, Spock and Khan are having a fight on top of moving ships, jumping back and forth on them while beating the crap out of each other. It's just not convincing. The rest of the movie is just a bit too frenetic for my taste, too. Eh.

  Comment #3883 by: Mitch at about 09:38 on May 28, 2013
Anybody watch the newest Arrested Development episodes? I love them.

  Comment #3882 by: Mitch at about 07:21 on May 24, 2013
I take that back. Most pile of shits are popular.

  Comment #3881 by: Mitch at about 00:59 on May 24, 2013
When you realize that the Open Forum was the first Facebook, the better you will be. You are living in a Nike commercial: the thing you hate most. Facebook is the Wal-Mart of a pile of shit, and no pile of shit will EVER be popular. Unless you're Adolf Hitler.......................or Wal-Mart.

I've been drinking.

  Comment #3880 by: Adam V. Pilon at about 00:01 on May 23, 2013
Okay, I'll add a comment: For those of you who haven't heard through the various grapevines, I'll be moving back to Chicago at the end of June. California has a lot going for it -- but at the end of the day, it isn't "home."

I'm basically finished with FB. I'm very much considering deleting it but I do like a few aspects of it. Not much, mind you. I do love Twitter, it gives me the freedom to find information very fast. As long as you're smart about who you follow, it can be very informative and helpful to build a network. Plus, I don't feel obligated to follow anybody. I've found that 70 is about the optimal number of people or companies to follow without missing information or feeling overwhelmed by information.

My buddy just sent me an invite to a network that is set up very much like Twitter but with a few more options. I think it would be cool for folks that used to visit the TDMC forum. It's fast to share information and there is an app for it. Check it out, it's called and it would be a cool way to start fresh.

No real news yet, but interviewing in Chicago. Unofficially, I'll be leaving this post on May 31st. Fingers crossed!
