Wisely spending my time reading @RudinJen’s book while waiting to audition.

Happy Sad Songs and Sad Happy Songs (extended) - The Gregory Brothers

I enjoy these types of experiments in music.

I’m fine with watching a pre-roll ad that is 20 seconds or less before a video that is at least a minute-and-a-half. I’m fine with watching a 45-second ad for a video that is at least 7 minutes long. If I really like the YouTube channel, I won’t even push the “Skip Ad” button if those time parameters are met.

99.999% of the time, I will not watch an ad that is as long as/longer than the video I’m trying to watch. There is far too much content I’m trying to power through in my life to spend half of it watching ads. I will always, always, always skip an ad that is 2.5 minutes or longer. Always.

Also, what is the deal with using entire videos from other YouTubers as pre-roll ads? Channel preview/commercial videos = fine. Entire episodes/videos = unacceptable. Show a 15- to 30-second teaser for the video with a “click the ad to view the rest”. I might actually click on that stuff.

I know we’re all trying to figure this digital distribution thing out, but these things are not working.

20 Things You Might Not Know About Ghostbusters
The deus ex machina of the Ghostbusters crossing the streams of the proton packs helped them to—spoiler alert—defeat the Marshmallow Man and the evil demon Gozer at the end of the film. According to Ramis, this activity didn’t appear in script. He and Aykroyd were unsure how to get the Ghostbusters out of the final scene alive, and because the nuclear technology behind the proton packs was “explained” with humorous techno-babble and mostly left up to the audience’s imagination, they came up with the idea of crossing the streams—an act which would somehow cause a cataclysmic shift in our dimension. After this decision was made, they added in some foreshadowing of the event to an earlier scene, only to revisit the concept in the climactic standoff at the end.
