I have spent over 40 minutes of my life trying to fix Laughing Guy. I will try no more. I simply cannot lower the volume withoUt destroying whatever compatibility that makes joining it QUICKLY and EASILY to The Soup (or whatever) possible.
It's a film from the 30's for God's sake. How I ever got it to work or what incredbily bizarre compression was in (I don't even have the original anymore), nobody knows. Or, more accurately, I don't. I've run the damn thing thru every piece of video editing software I have. Please, no suggestions. I'm done with this particular stone in my shoe.
But a LOT of people (myself included) LIKE Laughing Guy (soft or loud). SO.....I have conceived of the following compromise solution: there will be, starting with this episode, TWO bumps....a silent like I've been using FOLLOWED by Laughing Guy. This gives you damn near 10 seconds to shut the thing off before Laughing Guy induces cardio thrombosis. It adds nothing to the file size and detracts nothing from the quality (though as of this writing I haven't actually seen it).
If this solution does not work for you I have this advice: The Soup airs at 10PM on Fridays on E!. Enjoy the commercials.
In other news:
1) As far as I can tell, a Daisy reunion never happened.
2) Megan is back on Sunday. The numbers for Ep 1 were strong as they always are for any Cronin show. I would love to give you Real Chance 2. And Charm School. And The TO Show. And hell, maybe even Brooke. I full believe you guys would carry those and make them worth putting up. I'd like to WATCH them too.....I simply do not have the time. I was more of a shut-in when I started this gig....I'm much less so now. Good for me, bad for the swarm.
3) No, that first bump is not my house. Further, should I ever have enough cheese to buy a house with an ocean view, my torrenting days will be over. Who needs TV when you've got that?
You guys take care. I take great pride in the numbers we put up. It must be said again: No matter how grateful you are to me for putting it up, I am only one seeder and often I'm out by the end of the first day. You guys are the strength of TheAOG.
