Special story: Musical podcasts of 2005.

I've skipped Rachel Maddow for the last three nights. It's no longer interesting to me. We're looping around and around. It's the same story. Trump was and is in the money laundering business. They operate in the open, just lie about it. No coincidence the same people in the June 2016 meeting are turning out to have relationships with Trump and his team as well as Putin and his. They're all part of the same effort. Trump is so happy to meet Putin and hang with him because he's the boss's boss's boss. We can all see Trump is both crazy and subordinate to Putin. The only story left to tell here is when are the Repubs going to do something about it.

A magazine is doing a profile of me re the beginnings of podcasting in 2003-2005. They asked for stories of goofs, or the first time something weird happened on a podcast. If you were listening back at the beginning, the podcasts from the DNC in 2003, or a BloggerCon, or one of the casts from my cross-country driving in 2004, please leave a note here with any stories you remember.

An interesting side-effect of all the Russian-Trump michegas is that the Russian actors in US politics are getting exhaustively examined by the US press. They probably don't like the exposure. Makes it harder for them to do what they do.

Tweet: A few years ago in Berkeley I had a public argument with Lowell Bergman. I said judges would blog, an idea the famous journalist laughed at. The point being that people who have climbed to the top of a ladder, the people we respect the most, usually miss new ladders being erected.

President Trump didn't get his way on health care, not that he had any idea what he wanted, so he threatened to "let ObamaCare die." Of course the Repubs can make it die, and there's a pretty good chance that's what they're doing. That's really fucked up. What's next. He wants something so he threatens to launch the nukes? A president who tries hostage-taking once will do it again.

The movie industry should solve this problem

21 July[ —]

The movie industry should invest in a simple ad-free fast showtime listings site where you can find out wtf is playing when near you.

Google used to have the perfect movie listings site, but they shut it down. Here's what Google says: "You can now discover showtimes on the search results page by searching for the name of the movie you want to see or try searching for the word 'movies' to discover what’s in theaters."

For the first part, I used Google Movies to find out what was available, so I might not know what movie I want to see. But today I know what movie I want to see: Dunkirk. So how do I search for all theaters in Manhattan that are showing that movie, and the showtimes, and the address of the theater. That used to be one click in Google Movies.

To the other half of their advice, when I type "movies" into the search engine, I get Fandango. Fandango is a piece of shit. Impossible to get the info you need, and it's incredibly slow. There must be a money-making reason for it. It makes it hard to find a movie in a theater to watch. To just daydream about what's available. Sometimes I used to go to a movie just because there was nothing else that interested me. I never do that anymore because they make it so hard to scan the listings. This, from an industry who feels imperiled by Netflix and piracy. Please. How much could it cost to solve this problem? How much revenue would it generate?

When I was a kid, New York Mag had a great movie listings section. So this is an example where the print era provided better info than the age of the Internet. That's just wrong. The bits cost nothing. The data is certainly available. Why don't they just solve the problem.
