Anniversary!

Note: It's a Blogging Best Practice to let your post sit for a bit before hitting "publish" so you can check spelling and grammar with a fresh eye.


It is an even better practice to actually hit "post" and not assume one has made a programming announcement like one did on Discord. 

Tonight is the one year anniversary of my first stream. So, despite it being a Saturday we will have an extended channel stream this evening beginning at 9PM EST 1AM UTC. 

We are on the Final Fantasy 14 North American server (in Sargatanas) if any members of chat who are FF14 players would like to do a dungeon or something.  

However:

After a bit of gaming while people filter in, we will change gears. At around midnight EST (depending on combat and cut-scenes) we will show two films from the 1920s that promise to be quite a treat. 

1 Week is a Buster Keaton short from 1923. Watch and be amazed at the master of physical comedy.



Our feature for the evening is CHANG! A semi-documentary from 1927. These days the academic nature of this film is criticized, its educational bonafides being somewhat hampered by the lack of any anthropologists on the 3 person shooting crew, but Adventurers Meriam C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack and Adventuress (and former spy) Marguerite Harrison more than make up for the lack of scholarly references by filming an absolutely great story. This film has been really hard to find and only recently have I managed to track down a copy not in French. 



In addition to narrating the title cards, I'll be providing some trivia about the making of the films. 

After the movies, we'll most likely do a little bit of grinding, in one of the channels current games. 

Stop by, grab a drink and a snack and join us at https://www.twitch.tv/brickmuppet for all the fun.
