I’m writing a joke about my dad and I stumbled across this article. There are some gems:

How To Make Video Files Smaller

Buried in this long article about making video files smaller is a nice tool I’d never seen before – Shotcut. It’s a little intimidating looking but fairly simple to use.

Also in the article is Handbrake, but that one I already knew about.

Superman, Batman and Lex Luthor Daddy Issues

From Zack Snyder, talking about Batman v Superman, which was a ridiculous movie but I thought this bit was interesting. Emphasis added:

While Luthor is often used as a parallel to Superman, Snyder was interested in showcasing the parallels between Lex and Bruce as well. All three men are fixated on their fathers, and have maintained tombs in their memory. Lex took his father’s study and built a new house around it, and maintained its upkeep so that nothing fell out of place. Bruce held onto Wayne Manor, but let it fall into decay. And Superman keeps the memory of both fathers, Jonathan and Jor-El, as a part of his deeds and Kryptonian suit,

I never thought about it but this all makes sense. Batman is fixated on both parents, but it’s always about the dad. Superman barely mentions his mother. Luthor I never thought about, but again, it makes sense.

Someone told me “Men don’t have daddy issues” and I said “oh please.” Even superheroes have them! Maybe especially superheroes.

Download YouTube Videos using VidPaw

If you need to download a YouTube video for a legit reason (like it’s your friend’s video for example), the best way I know of at the moment is VidPaw. Very simple, no crazy ads or spyware. This could change of course, there used to be other ones I used. But as of this moment (4/3/20, day 22 of quarantine) it works.
