Another interesting pre-production anecdote to share about MORON LEAGUE 4, but as I'm finishing up the last of the major sets, I realize that one shot that's scripted will actually have to be completely re-written before filming due to the size and proportion of one of the characters in relation to this particular set (the sets are constructed mainly to be raised up so the figures and such can be puppeteered from under the floor level), so some last-minute alterations were added to this particular set as well.

Other than that, I'm practically finished with the sets for the most part - now I just have to wait for my other voice actors to send me their lines (as well as some set decor I've ordered), and I'll finally, finally, finally be ready to roll camera!

I've figured out another reason why DVD is still superior to streaming: DVD has no commercials; streaming forces you to sit through commercials that you can't skip.

Meanwhile, physical media still slowly declines anyway.
People have been saying that for nearly a decade, yet they keep releasing things on DVD and Blu-ray, and a few years back came out with a new physical disc format, Ultra 4K HD.

I get what you’re saying, but part of me feels like they will be gone by the middle of the 2020’s or even early 2030’s.

digital only will never be viable unless ISPs get more generous with their internet plans. we only very recently, like within the last year, got unlimited data. And even with that unlimted data, not only is our internet throttled around the billing period, we also only get like 30 mbps, 40 mbps on a good day.

standard mbps is over 100. but where we live, we literally cannot get that.

and there are many people who have low data caps and even lower internet speeds.

so either physical media keeps going, or isps need to get better for digital only to actually work. or you know...isps just start squeezing money out of people because people have no choice but to pay more to keep up with the times :smirk:

Apparently, they're trying to get the date of Halloween legally changed from a fixed date on October 31 to the last Saturday of October every year from now on.

my first thought is so kids dont have to trick or treat on school nights, but that sounds too logical
