For anyone watching the archive that have not watched this live

I must warn you.. when Dan starts speaking about the Lion King, you're in for a doozy.

EDIT: Also yah it seems to be not linked properly because it plays last weeks video instead.

Show a video on the homepage I would expect I would be able to watch it.

With the bit about Alex fixing the camera, I thought for sure I'd already seen this episode! You got me good!

Wait now I am feeling crazy because this is definitely last week's episode. I don't tend to watch closely!

Why would they make us wait 4 hours if it’s posted on the homepage for the new episode? Makes no sense

@humanity: I tuned in VERY briefly to the stream and caught the middle of this conversation and oof, I might skip through that part.

Though probably for the opposite reason of most people in that I find people get weirdly... Mean? (Maybe not the best word) towards Dan during these discussions about "art" and I find it off putting to listen to.

@epidehl: I definitely get what you you're saying. Mean might be harsh, but I have felt the Dan bashing has been a little much a couple of times.

It felt like folks were so ready to dunk on Dan that they couldn't just be supportive that he's expanding his horizons.

I refuse to believe that Dan is that dumb, i think he likes to play dumb because he likes the attention gets from it. Just IMO

Literal political figures like Lyndon B. Johnson and Krushchev are in Metal Gear! I like Dan and I'm glad Dan is discovering this stuff (better now than never) but Dan just needs to occasionally internalize things. Sometimes it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt (Dan would appreciate that reference).

Harmy's Despecialized Edition is the Star Wars they are talking about, in case anyone was curious. I watch them almost exclusively over the Special Editions. Incredible work done on those.

dan is basically socrates at this point tripping people up by saying, like, "I never heard of justice until after I graduated college, what's this justice thing you're all going on about"

The book Unmentionable gets into the how things used to be from a women's perspective. They definitely mention people never showering.

I just got back from The Lion King and listening to Dan having an epiphany about it is insane.

The movie is literally the exact same as the original (to a fault imo) and somehow he is still shocked by the plot and I guess underlying message.

I wish more people had the attitude "I'm learning now! Learning's still fun!"

And fun example of people reading too much into something: a common interpretation of King Kong destroying the train tracks had to do with a labor dispute going on while the movie was getting made, the worker rising up against the corruption of management. And then the director way down the line did a commentary track, and when that scene came up, he said, "When I first moved to New York, I had an apartment right outside the L-line track, and I always said 'when I make a movie, I'm breakin' that fuckin' train track.'"

Oh no I now need this shirt Alex has. Fuck.

EDIT: I thought this shirt was a reference to Shadowfall: Hong Kong and, although I was not ENTIRELY wrong, I now feel immensely dumb.
