Sean Feucht and Eric Discuss Sean's New Film 'Superspreader'
"I'm talking to Sean foy. Can you spell it? No one can. But I can pronounce it. Sean, okay, people know you in various contexts. Last night, you had a lettuce worship event in the middle of Times Square. It was amazing, and it was what I think part of what you're helping people do, and you've definitely helped me do that. It really to be bolder in our expressions of faith. I mean, to worship God, unashamedly in the middle of Babylon, essentially. And to say that we're going to take Babylon for Jesus because he loves all of these broken people. And they need him. There is something powerful about that. Now I want to say, again, you've been doing these worship, let us worship prevents all around the country. But now, and I said this yesterday at the end of the film, the film super spreader is spectacular. It's really wonderful. It's not an official Christian film because Kevin sorbo is not in it. All right? So I just want to say, we can't say like official Christian film because sorbo is not in the cast. But I'm in it and all kinds of other people are in it, but it tells the story of what happened with you and your beautiful wife and your family. But what amazes me is that as people go to theaters now to see super spreader, it's going to continue the movement. In other words, the film in theaters is continuing the movement and getting these ideas out there. So I was thinking in other revivals in history, we've never had the possibility of capturing stuff on. I mean, in the Jesus movement in the late 60s, early 70s, whatever, you know, they weren't they weren't able to spread this around the country. Maybe it would be in Time Magazine if you're lucky, but there's no way and to me the film super spreader is somehow being used by God to touch people. You can
Sebastian Talks to Russian-Born U.S. Intel Expert Rebekah Koffler
"Back with Rebecca cough. She is the author of a former senior DIA expert on Russia. Jim carfano of heritage tweeted out early today and I retweeted it. If you look at what is it, the 27 28 members of NATO, the highest commitment of aid to Ukraine by members of NATO as a percentage of GDP are the Baltic states and Poland. Isn't that interesting? The states that were under the boot of the Soviet Union are invaded themselves. They're the ones helping out the Ukraine the most. Isn't that telling? Absolutely, and it's always been that way. Sebastian, I even when I was in the community, you know, the people who are very responsive and helpful, they assist us tremendously because they are right there in the theater. They gathered and not Germany. Germany's in bed with Moscow with the Gerhard shredder being one of the CEOs of Gazprom. Exactly. You're going to leave our studio. You've been doing media all day. You said you're going to go if you're going to write an analytic piece, talking about scenarios. So people need to read your article, but first, not nuking America because he's not insane. He's not suicidal. But what's scenarios under which could Putin consider using the low threshold low yield tactical nukes. Give us some examples. So we're exactly right now in this scenario Sebastian for which, on Putin's orders, this doctrine was developed in the first place, escalated to deescalate and scenarios this Putin is losing on the battlefield. And he is cornered.
NYC School Continues COVID Mandates
"Reading to you about the catastrophe that the lockdowns have brought upon places this time New York City. I'll continue that. I want to give you the update on masks in New York City. Truly foolish city, true city, run by fools, and many of its inhabitants, not all. Equally foolish. Most of this. In all schools, students, families, staff, and visitors. Must complete a health screening form before entering a school building each day. You know what that's about? Every day? Every day. Every student has to complete a health screening form. What does it ask? How do you feel? I assume that's what it asks. Not finished. This is really, this is frightening and sad. Students who compete in certain sports such as football and take part in certain extracurricular activities, including musical theater, must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Caller: Today, Evil Is Loose in New York City
"I live in New York and living here my whole entire life, 66 years. So I know when it's been good and when it's been bad and I lived through all of this, what I see, how happening in the streets is that the evil is loose, there's no restraint on them because they feel like they're complexion is that protection and they do whatever they want because once they get in front of the judge and the prosecutor or whatever, they play the victim card and then you got the little legal aid hugging them and robbing them and it's sickening. It's sickening. There's no discipline. There's no restraint. And Kathy hochul. She's just, she don't care. She don't have to live a day by day. She don't have to take the subway. So you don't have to walk the street, looking behind the scene, who's walking around with a freaking pipe who's walking around with a freaking axe. She don't have to live this way. It's terrible. And you say yes, back in the days, the people came out and they voted for common sense, Rudolph Giuliani, but tacky those people are gone. They moved away. You know, you know, Kathy, I have got to talk about on a personal level. You have to understand something. As a kid in Ohio, I dreamed of living and working in New York City. To me, it was like going to Oz. Getting to work and live in New York City was like visiting Oz, it was seeing the best in the world, the best restaurants the best theater, the best professional sports. There was nothing like getting to New York for a broadcaster. Kathy and it breaks my heart to say this. I can't get out of here fast enough.

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani Unpacks the Trauma of 9/11
"You know, it's amazing. You didn't have death by panic. Do you think of all these even things where it's only a thousand people trying to get out of a theater and ten people die of panic. You had thousands and thousands of people get out. Nobody jumped on each other and nobody jumped over each other. That's a credit to your firefighters and police officers. That's the kind of conversations I get, but it almost always begins with. Oh, I was, I was on vacation. I was on vacation in the mountains, and I didn't know about it for a day. It's so terrible I missed the whole first day or the or. One of my best Friends works at Fitzgerald and I was so worried and then I said, well, what happened to your friend? And sometimes they'll say, well, they made it out or sometimes they died and I said, I'm terribly sorry. But there's almost a compulsion to identify where you were on that day. And I remember in my parents generation. How often they told me over and over again, where they were on the day and the moment they found out about where my father was when my mother was a Friends would tell you where they were on Pearl Harbor. And then I think that happened with the Kennedy assassination too. So yeah, there's no question that it's one of the significant events that has shaped us in ways that I'm not sure. I don't think we know yet, exactly how we shaped us. I really do believe. I mean, a lot of people look back on the Kennedy assassination. And they think a lot of the disruption, a lot of the social disruption that took place in the 60s and the 70s, some of it was caused by that. I do think that some of what we're going through is caused by September 11th. So, you know, some of the very strange different ways our patterns have changed. And I think it's going to fix itself, but it's a traumatic experience. We're
Hope Springs Eternal From the Ashes of History
"Now I want to go back to the very beginning of the book and probably the greatest insight for us looking forward to the competition with China, which is underway on page 83. This is set in 1939. And then 41. The gigantic struggle for the United States that began with the Attack on Pearl Harbor and ended with the dropping of the atomic bomb was different from any other major war in history. Different in its dimensions and topography, different in the weapon systems and support systems, carry air power, landing craft, fleet trains, then emerged to be war winning ones, different even in the sort of fighting units, the Marine Corps, the seabees, that would have to be put together. It was geography that the country emerging bacteria here would have to become a special sort of maritime power. The combatant that understood that first and better would be the Victor. So everything had changed from World War II to 1941, doctor Kenny, have they changed again from 1945 to 2022. Yes, indeed. First of all, the basic the basic strategic position that the United States is the is still despite deficiencies in the center of the western military economic order remains, but the it changes because of newer technology, which may be coming so fast that nowadays we don't really realize the dimensions of it or how we have to respond to it. It changes because we are probably not going to think again over huge, huge American military reinforcement of 2 million plus men to the European theater and 3 million plus men to the Pacific theater. It may have gone up into the sky to the ESA and yet we still need to be have the basic ship systems and weapon systems growing across the Atlantic and the Pacific for this for this year of 2022 onwards into the middle of the century.
Kirk Cameron Previews His New Film 'Life'
"I don't know how you do this. It's like you've got these incredible movies coming out just, I mean, it's like Karen Kingsbury, the novelist. What's a month you got a movie coming out here? How in the world do you do this? Well, you know what? The timing of it is really incredible, Todd. I assume you're talking about the homeschool awakening, a movie that came out a couple of months ago, and now here's life Mark, a movie about the value of life in the womb and the beauty of adoption. But we made this back in 2019. It was supposed to come out a year ago, but it was delayed due to the COVID pandemic shutdowns, and then who would have thought that the Supreme Court would have essentially overruled roe versus wade that it would be gone and then a couple months later, the movie rushing into the theaters about the value of life. I mean, this is a providential timing. So I'm really not king the king Karen Kingsbury of movies. God is just the perfect schedule of events to where this thing came out right on the heels of that important decision.
Kathy Griffin Says Republicans Will Start a Civil War
"I want you to understand to what extent that they can dish it, but they can't take it. I want you to understand to what extent that they really are not sorry. They only sorry when they get canceled when they get caught. Listen to Kathy Griffin, defend the fact that she had a beheaded face. They called it an effigy of beheading of a president of the United States of America. She literally had his head silvered with blood all over. Fake blood. Wrote a clip. You apologize. You were very upset. Are you no longer sorry for it? Correct. I'm no longer sorry. The whole outrage was BS. The whole thing got so blown out of proportion. And I lost everybody. Like, I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends. Debra messing from Will & Grace, tweeting against me. I mean, I lost everybody. And so I have been through the mill and I also, you know, I didn't just lose one night on CNN. My entire tour was canceled within 24 hours because every single theater got all these death threats. I mean, these Trump fans, they're hardcore. They have like robocalls, and they're a minority, but they know how to act like they're a majority.

Sebastian Unpacks the FBI's Total Corruption With Gregg Jarrett
"Newt on Fox with his qualification of the federal bureau of investigations cut to. I think that you've been watching political theater. Disguised as law enforcement. We've seen that now for four or 5 years. We've seen case after case where they are overreacting, where they're deliberately humiliating people. I always say that our podcast with Paul Manafort about his experience in prison, he's in, he's kept in solitary confinement for 8 months. And I just think this is, you're watching a corrupt department that is out of control, gave 98% of its money to Hillary Clinton in 2016 of the people who were donating, who worked at that department. The senior justice, the senior FBI, is clearly corrupt and clearly dishonest. Greg, is the FBI out of control and why is half of the affidavit supporting the warrant still unreadable? It's right. It's a cesspool of corruption. And when Merrick Garland says, oh, trust us, we should not. He is not our trust. His actions in protecting, running to protection racket for Hunter Biden, Joe Biden. Together with his lawless rate into Trump's home, grabbing everything in sight are just two examples of why we shouldn't trust them. And today in a court filing down at Florida, Garland, who is opposing the appointment of a special master to examine the seized documents for privileged material. Said up, well, we already looked at them all. We have our own filter team team. To ensure that these documents are properly protected and that executive privilege and attorney client privilege are segregated. Yes, right. And
Jimmy Gagliano: Staged Photo Released by DOJ Was Political Theatre
"Saw the leaked photo the other day, top secret documents recovered from this room at Mar-a-Lago. Your sense of what's pictured there, but also your sense of having that leaked yeah, that was that was theater. And I hate to say this because as I always push back and I know at the top you did caveat this by saying, we both love and respect the 12,000 sworn agents, the men and women who do the hard work. And they're taking direction from the top. And all of your listeners here are in Todd's listeners are certainly going to know that the FBI is led by a political appointee. It's the way that it is the president has the right to appoint an FBI director who serves for ten years. And an attorney general is another political appointee, and obviously everything that happens in those agencies is directed there. Jeff, I saw that. It kind of made me cringe. I get it. I remember there were times where defense attorneys, especially in public corruption cases, would get out in front of the cameras. And when I was a young FBI agent, making cases, my bosses would say, shut up and do your job, you know, we're not going to weigh in on this and you get battered in the press and you're like, gosh, if I could just put this out there, it would be, it would be the margin of victory, but we're not trying to make cases in the court of public opinion. We're following the law bereft of fear favor. And when I saw that picture posted Jeff, it literally turned my stomach. That was political opportunism. There was no need for that. It didn't prove anything. We knew that there were some documents that were considered to be classified either top secrets, secret or confidential and this should have been litigated in court, whether or not the president or the former president had to write to have those or not it shouldn't

Warner Brothers Has a Big Decision to Make About Ezra Miller
"Speaking of badass, I shouldn't say that because he's not a badass. Let's just call him an ass. Ezra Miller, I've talked about him for the last couple of weeks. This is the guy that plays the flash Ezra Miller is a terrible person. He's been arrested and, you know, cops have been after him from anything from kidnapping to shoplifting to assault in Vermont in Hawaii. He's a real prick, but he's the flash. And Warner Brothers, even though they got rid of batgirl and the Scooby-Doo movie, they made no bones about we're keeping the flash and you stalked going, well, what does this guy have to do to lose the movie? Now Warner Brothers has a decision to make. About the flesh. And this is the last time I'm going to talk about it, but there's three options Warner Brothers has. In one scenario, the crazy Ezra Miller, with the support of his mother, I'm not going to say their mother, I refuse to do the pronoun bullshit for non binary people I refuse to do it. So forget it. His mother, who's currently with him, in the first scenario, Ezra Miller should seek professional help and maybe, you know, give an interview at some point, explaining his erratic behavior of the past few years, then they could do like a limited press for the flash sort of thing and the movie would open and send him as planned. That scenario number one. Scenario number two is Ezra doesn't seek help. Maybe they can release the film in theaters as planned, but Ezra would not have a prominent role in terms of marketing and publicity. So you see the movie, he's not going to go out there in front of the movie and talk about it and publicize it. No, no talk show appearances, et cetera. And maybe they recast future flash films. Actually, they would have to. Third scenario, the situation where Ezra Miller deteriorates even further, which is not out of the question. This would see Warner Brothers killing the movie outright because it can't be reshot with a different actor at this point. Ezra Miller plays multiple characters and he's in almost every scene, so we're talking about scrapping a $200 million film, which would be unprecedented.

"home theater" Discussed on Home Gadget Geeks
"Well, this is the first winter I'm kind of like, I'm done with winners. I don't know. I don't know. It was a cold one. I'll give you that. It was a pretty gold one. Maybe it's just the pandemic. I don't know. I just have like, there's so many things I've done with right now. I'm done. I am done that. Well, what we haven't done yet is post some show notes. We'll do that out of the average guy TV. Don't forget, join me on Saturday. So this Saturday at noon central will premiere this on YouTube, a chance for you to come out and do it again with an audience. There's usually 5 or 6 or ten of us that show up to that thing. And it's just a good opportunity to chat just around the video. So if you want to come out and do that, we premiere at noon, Saturday. It's noon central on Saturdays right there on YouTube. You can head out to the average guy TV slash YouTube for that. No show next week, which is the 24th of February. I it's my anniversary. And I was like, you probably shouldn't do one. We hit scheduled the Discord chat for that. We're doing those the last Thursday of every month. That will move to the third. So the 3rd of March, I think more B is going to join us for that. So post show will move into Discord on that 1 March 3rd. And then a big thanks to Gavin Campbell, who joined us last week did a bang up job. We had a lot of great conversations with Gavin around home security and home security cams and Gavin, thanks for coming on to do it. We also recorded a cyber frontiers last night, so if you're listening to this, maybe you're new to home gadget geeks and you're like, what's cyber frontiers? Christian, you were the brainchild behind cyber frontiers. If you had a one minute elevator pitch to what we're doing on that. And we're just bringing it back. Although it's never been very consistent. But give me the one minute. It really was inspired from the early days of home tech when there was Christians corner and that was just like this blob of information of people sometimes did or didn't know what to do with it. And as I went through university, the academic perspective kind of picked up of like, what are some of the cutting edge technologies and things? That really haven't made their way into the average guys. Viewport so to speak, but things that are coming, trends and technology, and so when we launched the podcast, it was really just a focus on things like cybersecurity, big data and the technologies that were shaping it. The podcast quickly evolved to start covering other topics in artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, enterprise networking, and so it's been a really fun show to just kind of look at some of those things that impact the technology industry and enterprises at large. And then in more recent shows, still trying to bring it back to the average guy, right? So it's kind of a bit of the theoretical bit of the cutting edge. You may or may not be experiencing it in your life yet from a day to today basis. But we try to connect it and bring it back to what it means for you. Yeah. That's exactly what it is. It's super fun. We're going to shoot for one a month. Second or third Wednesdays seem to be the right cadence on that. We'll be I'll be posting them on Twitter at Jake Paulson if you want to follow me on Twitter. Just you can join us live. You can re subscribe to the feed. If it's probably dropped off, it had been, I think, 17 or 18 months in between the last one we did. I think we did it October of 2020. Was the last one. We did and we actually had been kind of consistent up until that point and then just 2021 happened and we missed most of the year. So get resubscribed cyber frontiers if you're new to home gadget gear it's one you'll probably like and to head out there and get that resubscribed. I think if you were to, for 65, which we recorded last night, Christian. If you were to give a quick kind of synopsis of what's the high level of what we talked about last night, you think. Last night, in part was a fast forward of like 2020 or rewind of 2021 and macro spec, particularly kind of looking across security trends. As well as workplace trends, right? So what did COVID really do from a hybrid environment and what technology lovers are getting pushed up or down as a result of that? And then also talking a little bit about our breaches and ransomware and these other tax are they happening more often, less often, what levels of sophistication are we seeing and then what are some of the technologies that are trying to combat those things? And then we also talked about just where some of the standards are or aren't in solving these problems and how the industry at large could be doing a better job. To address those things. But fundamentally, we made a lot of progress. There are still a really scary stuff that happened in 2021. We talked about things like solar winds and the Colonial Pipeline attacks as examples both within that year. So yeah. Yeah. That's good, it's good overview. I'll be releasing that a little bit later this weekend early next week. If you want to get that and then I think march 16th, I already have the calendar to record again. So I look forward to doing those as well. We had you on. To kind of catch up with you about a month ago and we had a couple subjects lined up. And home theater was one of them. We just didn't have time to cover it. So I said, hey, would you come back and spend some time talking about the new home theater you're putting in? You know, you recently purchased a home, had an opportunity to kind of have an opportunity to get things going from scratch, not everybody chooses, you know, some people just have a living room, and they put a TV in it, right? From that standpoint. But it's a great opportunity. Home theaters and the equipment to do a really good one is all available at the consumer level now. And that used to be kind of a you had to hire a guy to come in and set some things up in the wiring was a little intimidating. And the parts were from weird companies you never heard of before, right? It just was kind of it was kind of outside of the DIY space. And certainly in the last probably in the last decade, that's all those barriers have come down. And now I think the average guy can pretty reasonably set up a pretty nice system home theater system and kind of get it as big or as plain, I guess, is they want Christian talk a little bit about just your early thoughts and what were you hoping to achieve by kind of setting up your own home theater systems? Yeah, you know, it's really interesting. Probably back in 2017 or so I invested, well, televisions are aren't necessarily an investment.

"The purpose of this technology is to prevent unauthorized copying of protected. Material and the technology prevents media that has been hd c. p. encrypted from being played on unauthorized devices meaning gadgets that could potentially copy hd cpi content. So here's kind of how it works from a really high level. Let's say you've got to devices connected via hdmi and device number one is a media streaming device and device number two is immediate capture device. Maybe it safe stuff too hard drive or burns it to an optical disc or whatever doesn't really matter device number one before sending any media to device number two does a quick check to see device to as a quipped to copy. Hdp material and if device number one figures out that that is the case then you end up getting a fail. Message like content could not be displayed on this device. And it's that built in drm that really got the industry behind it and for that reason there were a lot of home theater enthusiasts in the hdtv era who stuck with component video cables for as long as possible. Because it meant that you weren't limited in how you're consuming your media. There's this constant battle between the consumer and the industry where the consumer just wants to be able to enjoy their media on their own terms. The industry wants to control how the media can be consumed because obviously if the consumer is able to replicate the media and duplicate them the media and distribute it then that could affect the bottom line of the industry com companies. So there's this constant back and forth and for a lot of home theater enthusiasts. They were saying. I want be able to enjoy the media. I have purchased in any way. I like and i don't like having companies create. Drm that could stand as a potential barrier and to be fair drm can sometimes affect legitimate users accessing their their material that they have purchased like that can happen. We've seen it happened multiple times. Where a bad the our implementation actually disproportionately has a native impact on legitimate consumers and so then that leads to pirates figuring out ways to circumvent diarra protection and ultimately. It doesn't do anyone any good. It just becomes a rule that only punishes the people who are following the rules in the first place. so that's why a lot of home theater enthusiasts. At least a certain subset of them were really reluctant to let go of component video cables because those analog signals could not be subjected to the same sort of drm as the digital signals. That were going through hdmi and that meant that a lot of those home theater uzice had to rush out there to start buying compatible equipment because a lot of manufacturers stopped making you know televisions and media devices that supported component video cables. So that meant that you might have to run out and buy a dvd player. And maybe a blu ray player because they weren't always compatible with each other maybe at a television and like more stuff like that before the component video cable capability just went away so it was pretty wild Also means that a lot of like home theater enthusiasts. Who have been doing this for awhile. Have a lot of legacy systems connected okay. I've got a little bit more to say about cables and home theaters. Before i get to that. Let's take one last break So before the break. I was telling you about. Hdc and how that's a form of diarra and.

"Streaming services to provide four k content. You could be bumping up against some data caps Like comcast has a data cap. That seems incredibly high. It's one point two terabytes. That's a huge amount of data. But if you're a home theater. Fiend you can hit that after forty hours of watching hd content. So if you're going to be doing at a lot that's something that could take in the consideration I think we can now switch over to finally talk about cables and in a way. I think that cables has become a little less confusing over time. Maybe by a little bit so we'll do Quick recap on audio and video cables to see where we came from. Because i mean some home theater systems still use these legacy cables because they still include legacy components. If you have like an old vcr for example and you wanna be able to watch vcr cassettes then you may need some of these old cables. It also could probably mean that you're gonna need some adapters in order to connect these older devices to your newer television sets because a lot of manufacturers stopped including those ports.

"The issues that that those cheap headphones have is that they're not reproducing all the frequencies that are actually present in the music. So it's like you're getting a narrow slice of what the music is not the full audio experience now. Shoplifters don't need to be as directional as other speakers so you don't have to have them sitting in a very specific spot in your setup the way you do with like your front left and front right and center speakers and all that kind of stuff however depending upon the size and shape of your home theater space you might actually need more than one subway for to create the effects. You want otherwise you could find out that the base distribution in your home theater. Setup isn't quite up to par and that there are some maybe some dead spots in that space now. I've looked at a lot of surround sound speaker. Setups and many of the higher end ones have two sub offers and i should add that these are well outside my price range and probably outside most people's price range unless he got like ten or twelve grand just burning a hole in your very very large pockets. But you can see things like you know nine point to point to these crazy systems that they get to a point where you're thinking. How many speakers do you actually need. Apparently for some home theater enthusiasts It's gonna always be. There will never be enough speakers now. I think if anything this discussion really shows that you're physical space matters a lot when it comes to building out your home theater. If you want surround sound you need the space to be able to do it. And you need to set up speakers according to which version of surround sound. You're going with that. Also means figuring out stuff like cable management. Now there are wireless home theater systems. Where you've got like wireless speakers. Some of them are really really good. When they first came out wireless speakers were kind of looked down upon. Because the thought was that. If you didn't have physical wire connecting your components it could not possibly deliver the same level of experience. But we've gotten a lot better with those l. over the years however you know some systems still just use physical wires to connect everything speakers back to the mixer than You know subway offers might need their own power cable and everything so whichever set up you go with you need to take all this into consideration. Cable management becomes a real high priority. As you don't want to trip over cables or have unsightly wires all over the place so that you know one more thing for you to keep in mind now. You might also think that seven point one where you've got seven speakers plus a subway. Her like dolby. Atmos- is one of those kind of levels although they sometimes call it five point one point two..

"There'll be a little bit more behind you than the five point. one remember. Five point one was at an angle of like one hundred ten to one hundred twenty degrees. These would be more like one hundred thirty five to one hundred fifty degrees from your point of view of the tv so so more behind you than the five point. One version was then. We've got a variation on this called dolby atmos- so don't atmos- repurposes two of the speakers. In seven point one system specifically the two speakers that are positioned behind you. Those ones that are at the one hundred thirty five to one hundred fifty degrees. Viewing angle These become height speakers. Meaning your to mount these higher up. Maybe even suspended from the ceiling itself and these speakers then project sound overhead of the audience and that can create some really interesting effects when paired with media that supports dobie atmos- the overhead channels can add more specificity to the location of sounds making the experience way more immersive and the whole reason behind. This was that the folks at dolby figured that people would be able to hear sound coming from above more effectively than they would hear sound coming from behind them because our ears are not really shaped in such a way that they're great for catching sound. That's coming from behind us Sometimes the w atmos- gets the designation of five point one point two meaning you have five channels of regular horizontal surround. Sound the center front left front right and then the left and right channels then you have the subway offer then you have the two channels of overhead audio confused yet. They're actually some other seven point one configurations but they get really in the weeds and for most people. I feel it wouldn't be helpful. I will go into a little bit detail in our next episode to kind of talk about them. But i'm not gonna spend a whole lot of time on it because it just gets really really nerdy in the home theater space and for a lot of people. I think it's overkill but we will touch on that in our next episode so in our next episode. we're gonna talk a little bit more about Sound we'll talk. Why we want a subway in the first place for example we'll chat a little bit about some of the other things we have to take into consideration with sound and we'll also look at some of the other components that we would want in a home theater system like the media sources and stuff because obviously having the best equipment in the.

"Gonna get a lot of sound reflection and that's not necessarily a good thing if you want to create an immersive audio experience then you wanna be able to control. How sound is going to reach the audience. So let's say you like you're planning on being the person who primarily uses home theater. You wanna be able to control. How sound gets to you so that let's say you're watching a really creepy horror movie and you want the sounds to be really specific and directional so that when something happens say off to the left to your left onscreen then you hear it on your left side. Maybe even more positional than that. Maybe it sounds like it's coming up from behind your left shoulder while you have to create a set up where all this can happen for that reason. A lot of home theater enthusiasts prefer to have carpeted floors and they prefer to have walls that either have some form of baffling on them like Foam or fabric panels that absorbed sound rather than reflected or. They will put their home theater. No in the place. that has like drywall. Which is pretty good. At absorbing sound doesn't reflect sound quite as badly as say a flat would wall would Same thing is true for the ceiling. Some homeowners who when they're playing a home theater they'll use carpet tiles and they'll cover the ceiling with carpet tiles to try and dampen sound and absorb it so that you're not getting reflections off the wrong speaker if you're hearing a reflection that's coming from the right speaker in your left ear than it's sending the wrong information to your brain right it's telling you. Oh hey something's happening off to the left when really should be happening to the right so it's all about control and i think it talked a bit about windows in our last episode. The not only is it important to have good curtains or shades for windows to help cut down on ambient light and reduce glare. It's also important to cover those windows so that you don't have a flat hard surface that sound can bounce off of now. I know talking about sound. Reflection may seem like. I'm way off track as far as tech goes but the reason i wanted to cover it is i would hate for anyone to go out and make a massive investment in a home theater system..

"Different in that. Each pixel in an oleg screen amidst its own light and thus it can turn off entirely achieve a true black onscreen instead of this kind of dark gray because there's actually a light shining through a liquid crystal and some of that light is bleeding through the liquid crystal to get to the screen so with leads. You don't have a back light. The leads are both light and pixel and Alleged screens are impressive. Whereas led screens are trans. Missive and accu- led screen is also transmits of edsa type of led so samsung's q led screen includes a film of quantum dots in addition to the led and lcd elements. So the light passes through the film of the quantum dots. in addition to everything else. I imagine that probably means that the lights behind the screen need to be even brighter in order to push the right amount of light through all those elements including the extra layer of the quantum dot film but the quantum dots are supposed to provide much more vibrant and realistic color representations of the colors. You get on screener supposed to be more accurate and jump off the screen more effectively now. Q. led screens typically can produce a much brighter picture than led screens. Do so while. Oh leads are great. For contrast and they work really well indem rooms culet led screens are more luminous and they can work better and brighter rooms. So if even if you have like a lot of ambient light in your home theater space or you're not even building a home theater you just want you know a good tv and you have a lot of windows or whatever or a lot of other light in the space. These screens can be bright enough where they can overcome that that ambient light that's in your area and they also worked pretty well with hd our content that high dynamic range where you're trying to reproduce colors in a really vibrant way now. That's not to say that q leads are better than leads. But rather if you're in a bright setting it seem that way this by the way is one of the reasons that so dang hard to shop for televisions because typically you go to a store. That's lit with these bright fluorescent lights and it can mean that a television that tactically will deliver a superior performance under normal. viewing circumstances. Might not look the best simply because you're in a very bright environment not in a home theater setting That's why a lot of these places will have a home theater room setup where at least a certain number of televisions can be shown without being in that bright environment then again maybe if your home is brightly lit then the the experience again.

"Be more sharp and more clear more solid so. This is really great for certain things like sports where the effect is almost like. You're there in person because you're not getting motion blur and stuff like that In addition to refresh rate. Tv's typically have some other anti blurring technologies built into them. This can boost the perceived effect so a lot of companies will actually describe this by just saying the tv has an even higher refresh rate than the television actually does like. It might really refresh the screen one hundred twenty times a second but i might be advertised at two forty or even higher because the technical detail. How many times it refreshes. The screen isn't as important saying this is the effect you will perceive when you watch right like those numbers. Don't really matter if they don't relate to what it's like to watch something on television screen. They're just numbers. It means nothing. You know it's the experience that actually means something so if the image seems more sharp and clear even when you're looking at stuff that's moving fast. That's all that really matters. Not which collection of technology has made it possible or what numbers we associate with them. However these technologies can also create some weird effects that you might not like so some folks complain that these faster refresh rates make stuff look artificial or fake The phrase that you will frequently here to describe this is it makes everything. Look like a mexican soap opera. Which don't get me wrong. I am not disparaging mexican soap operas. But they do have a particular look to them. And you don't necessarily want everything to look that way. A lot of theater buffs. I know would actually turn these refresh rates off the usually. They're setting somewhere in the television where you could just turn it to like sixty hertz or one twenty anything beyond that a lot of people just kind of shied away from and they would opt for that lower refresh rate and retain that motion blur stuff like tv shows movies..

"There is a standard hd are there other flavors of hd are and that means there's lots of competing technologies all trying to accomplish the same goal but they're not necessarily compatible with each other that means you could end up buying an hdtv and hd are set up and that the two don't necessarily work together like if your setup is working on one set and your tv is meant for different set. You got some issues. So let's get into that So hd are in case you're not familiar stands for high dynamic range. This became the buzzword of modern. Tv's and it tends to be one of those features that gets positioned as a main selling point so when resolution used to be the big differentiator. Now it's does. It have high dynamic range wa and it centers around this representation of color and brightness so dynamics references extremes right so like in in sound. let's talk about music you would say. A song was really dynamic if there was a lot of variation between the loud parts and the soft parts of the song if there were a lot of levels their volume levels sets of dynamics as opposed to a piece that maintains more or less the same level of volume throughout the whole piece with televisions. These dynamics are in the shades and brightness of the colors on the screen which ideally manifests as really vibrant onscreen displays. So the colors really pop out at you and there could be much more subtle shifts with light and shadow when you're working with a system that has really good. Hd are in fact a superior television with high resolution and hd are could even give you the feeling that you're looking through a window almost rather than a screen because hdr if it's implemented well can even convey a sense of depth and this is true even if the television isn't a three d. tv. And let me tell you. I am so glad we are past the three d television because that man. I didn't have to talk about three d in this episode. But there are some caveats when it comes to hd are and one is that every component in your system that deals with video has to be hd are compatible in order for you to get the benefit. so let's say that you have a game console and it supports. Hdr and you've got a television that supports hd are but the cable. You're using to connect your console. Tv isn't hd are compatible. Well you would not be able to take advantage of hdr. Or let's say that your tv and your cable or both hd are ready but your video source isn't same problem. Every single component has to be ready in order to take advantage of hd are moreover hdr is kind of. it's more what you'd call guidelines as barbosa would say it's like a defined goal. It's a system that has to achieve a certain benchmark in In in color representation in order to be considered hdr but how it goes about achieving that benchmark is technically you know a resolution of at least four k. and a certain contrast ratio that isn't standardized so in other words. You're saying here's your destination but how you get there is up to you so that means there are different flavors of hdr. There's hdr ten. That's your baseline version. Most other versions support hd ten. So hopefully if you have a setup you can use that but then you have other more. You know Feature filled versions. There's advanced hdr which was a product from technicolor..

"You know the hdtv days how close you sat was dependent on a few things not just television size but also the resolution of tv. And how good. Your vision was Because limitations and resolution would become apparent if the tv were particularly large. Or if you were sitting fairly close to it. So in other words he would say like Doesn't look that great but in the u. hd era four k. And beyond it's getting really super hard to spot those resolution issues unless you're talking about you know a gargantuan television like one of those that sharp would show off at. Cas on some years something. That's like a hundred inches or something so now the main thing is how. You're how much of your vision. Should the television actually fell or rather. How much of your field of view should be taken up by the tv. So let's say that you've got typical vision for human being and just for the record. I actually don't have typical. Vision is less than what is typical. So if you don't have typical vision please don't feel badly about it. I'm just using it as a way of setting A framework so typically humans have a field of view of an arc of a round two hundred ten degrees or between ten and two twenty in front of them. And that is if you were to draw straight lines out from the very edges of your vision while you're looking straight ahead then the angle between those lines would be somewhere around two hundred ten degrees now. Not all of that. Vision is equal right the stuff closer to the edges of your vision. Well that's in your peripheral and you won't see as much sharp detail there. You're aware of things that happen. In the periphery. But you're not focusing on that in fact when you get beyond about thirty degrees arc you're really talking about the mid peripheral part of your vision so generally speaking you want your tv to take up no more than say thirty to forty degrees of your field few and this should guide your decision when it comes to figuring out where you need to put say your chair or your couch or beanbag or whatever it.

"That is well and truly set an standardized it saying this is the top end. This is where eight k. Ends right here at this resolution. So yeah eight. Tv's at maximum resolution screen filled with more than thirty three million pixels. If you were to have every pixel light up and you are to number each one of them you would come up with more than thirty. Three million of those suckers so you got thirty. Three million and change teeny little blocks of light which you can use to make your images and right now. That's the top of the resolution charts that you can find for home theater television screens. So does that mean that more resolution means a better picture not quite. It's actually way more complicated than that. Resolution is important but it's just one component of making a good picture also. There's a limit to the amount of detail that are humanized can see and that limit depends upon each person's vision so it's not like i could give you a specific resolution and say this no further if you go any higher than this. It's a fool's errand because you'll never tell the difference. Ha ha ha but there are some other factors that that tie in with resolution when it comes to your viewing experience in how clear are sharp and images. One of those is the size of the television screen. so let's say we have three televisions. All of them are at hdtv resolution just to make this easy. And one of those televisions is forty two inches. Another one is fifty five inches and the third is sixty five inches but they all are ten. Eighty p resolution. Well that means that if you were to count up all the pixels on each of those screens each screen would have the same number of pixels. But that means that the pixels for the sixty five inch screen have to be a little bit larger than the ones that you would find on the forty two inch screen and then the fifty five inch screen would be right in the middle right because the same number of pixels are on all three screens but the screens are different sizes..

"So now we've moved away from the convention that we use to use to describe resolution in the in the sdn hd eras and. It doesn't help that there. Some discrepancies here as well. Like one of the issues that you often run into with home theater is that there's a lack of universal standards for a lot of stuff and that can cause issues dong line in televisions. We generally say it's a four k. Tv when it refers to a resolution of three thousand eight hundred forty pixels wide by two thousand one hundred sixty pixels tall and The first of all you notice that neither those numbers four thousand right three thousand eight hundred forty is close like you could round up to four thousand but neither of those are four thousand. So that makes the four k. Thing a little confusing also We see that. In previous resolution descriptions the number that we used to refer to how many pixels tall an image was was the dominant one. Right ten eighty means that you have one thousand eighty pixels from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen but with four k. With at three thousand eight hundred forty pixels were actually looking at the width of the screen from left to right not the height of the screen from top to bottom so those three thousand eight hundred forty pixels go across the screen. And if you're saying you know three thousand. Eight hundred forty isn't the same as four k. Like i said you're right and if you're wondering why don't we call it twenty one sixty because that would still be in the same line as ten eighty. We called it ten eighty. Why don't we call four k. Twenty one sixty. Well that's because. I don't know for some reason. We decided to switch things up and talk about width. Rather than height as far as pixel density goes now if we're talking about movie projection. Instead of television screens four k. Usually has a different resolution of four thousand ninety six pixels across and two thousand one hundred sixty pixels up and down so at least there..

That's kind of how i felt about star wars and marvel. I'm ready for the next thing. I heard someone else say in that. I was talking to a group of people in some. Was like yeah. I'm just burn out on marvel. I mean not saying that. They're not great movies and when you watch them. They aren't entertaining. I'm totally over. It and marvel has a new movie coming out And i forget the name of the title Some about ten rings or something that i think i saw an ad for is exclusively in the theater. Which should also rub scarlett johansson the wrong way like why would that. Go exclusively to the theaters But i looked at the preview for it. And i'm like another marvel movie. I don't know if i want to get invested in another marvel movie. I'm kind of over it too. So i feel i hear what you're saying all right alright lasting in it'll be really quick so i told you awhile ago that i watch. I started watching community. Yeah so we finish it. Finally and i enjoyed it immensely I think they hit their stride towards the middle of the first season and up to probably the middle of the third season. They did have some weird kind of Piece different shows that we're just kind of concept pieces that were fun and you just kind of said okay. It's not about the college anymore. But i think it finished overall pretty strong and i was happy with the ending. Yeah i enjoyed the show. I mean there was at least one. Laugh out loud moment in almost every episode Well written troy and abed were hilarious. detroit bed in the morning stuff was great. Yeah it was a bummer. One troy leftist show but You know. I guess he had bigger things to do. I've not seen them in any movies. Though i know that's what he left for a movie career but Maybe movies that. I'm not watching also made a pretty big molik. I didn't know he was doing music. Okay so then so that was well worth it. If you haven't seen community check it out. It's pretty funny and you know the funny thing is at the beginning. When that show us. I started. It was running today. I don't think it would. It would be allowed and then The other thing. I wanted to say is i think you told me to watch ted lasso. I did not know someone else and somebody else right. It is i love. i've seen three episodes. I am totally in. Because i know you and your family like soccer is something i think you guys might enjoy and Yeah so it's got one season and the new season they put. I think a new episode every week one episode of weeks. It's kind of old school in that regard. But i'm really enjoying it. I'm three episodes in and i love the character. Ted lasso i absolutely love Love him and then the other ones that are involved. I'm already starting to warm up to him. I i know who. I like and who i don't you could see what growth is going to happen in the characters. He can kinda see that coming. But it doesn't bother me. I'm still enjoying it In this exclusively on apple plus right now though right apple plus yes santiago. So if you bought an iphone or one of your kids have.
