Girl Hated For Being Too Pretty To Play Volleyball – Sabina Altynbekova

that's more like news isnt it?
The idea (my idea anyways) of 'good videos [short films]' was creative videos/films.
But I dont own it ;)

(enjoying the Led Zeppelin video as I write :up:)

My rating:    :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:
My Recommendation: A worthwhile watch for SF fans.
IMDB: This Is Not My Life
Quote
Alec Ross awakes one morning to find that he doesn't know who or where he is and doesn't recognize his wife or children.
_______________________

On Friday night, my wife - knowing that I ike SF and that I wouldn't usually watch TV - mentioned there was a SciFi film on TV called "This is not my life". I did a query on IMDB on it, and learned that it was in fact a New Zealand-made TV serial. Reviewers gave it an excellent rating, which surprised me as, from experience, NZ TV can usually be pretty mediocre. With a population of only about 4.5M it's probably not surprising.

I checked the TVNZ website to see what episode it was and saw that it seemed to be a rerun and that TVNZ now had a site for watching serials online: TVNZ OnDemand - https://www.tvnz.co....ntent/tvnz/ondemand/

EDIT 2015-06-21 2207hrs:] also try TVNZ OnDemand - https://www.tvnz.co.nz/ondemand.

The service is free to anyone wanting to sign up - though I am not sure whether it will necessarily permit overseas access on the same basis - i.e., overseas viewers may need to access it via VPN.

So, I signed up and decided to tentatively watch episode 1. There were 13 episodes altogether, each about 45mins long - so that would be (13 x 3)/4=9¾hrs approx., all up. I wouldn't want to invest my cognitive surplus in it if it was mediocre. I figured that I could find out if it was any good, by starting at Ep.1, and if it was, then I could work through successive episodes one-by-one, as time permitted.
So, I started to watch Ep.1 - and I was hooked.
I ended up staying up all night and watching the lot, totally immersed and wearing my Logitech G930  headset. Very enjoyable.   :-*

Summary: Good story which hung together and had a clever and novel theme; good plot with lots of twists and turns (enabled by the theme); good acting; well produced. Not necessarily the best SF TV serial I'd ever seen, but pretty darn good.

... overseas viewers may need to access it via VPN.

If your computer shows as being in a different timezone to New Zealand you'll get a message saying Timezone incorrect, however if you go into your settings and change your timezone, clear out your browser cache, and reload the page, it will allow you to sign up to watch it.

It may do an IP check after sign up but I would have thought that would be part of the initial check before you got that far.

I registered successfully, but video didint work - in spite of disabling flashblock (PaleMoon) or allowing all plugins (Chrome). Flash is getting more and more problematic in my experience lately, so I dont know whether that's simply a flash problem or that they just blocking it cause of my location.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the TVNZ OnDemand link https://www.tvnz.co.nz/ondemand seems to work best. Try different browsers as well.
I'll alter the link in my previous post. Had difficulty getting it to play in full screen.

I tried IE, Pale Moon, and Dragon, all either changing the timezone or going via a VPN, none of them would play the content, just ended up with a black screen ... and they wonder why people download content via bittorrent, (which I'm about to do ;) ).

@4wd: Did you manage to get that site's content via bittorent? If so, then how?

Reason I ask is that I couldn't get fullscreen display from that TVNZ OnDemand site - on any browser - and put it down to WFN (Windows File Notofoer) having stuffed up the MS Firewall, or something - per separate thread.

However, having now fixed that (reset all Firewall settings to standard and uninstalled/reinstalled IE11 via Windows Features | Turn Windows features On or Off), I am still unable to view in fullscreen on that particular website.

I didn't find a reference to this here, so I wanted to recommend this site:

http://thekidshouldseethis.com/

It's just a curated list of youtube and vimeo videos which are made for adults but interesting or educational for kids. The site author has kids near the same ages as mine, so we relate pretty well to his posts.

He redesigned the site making it harder to use  :( (can't play videos from the main list any more, or from a RSS reader), but the posts are still high-quality.

Also, he tags things pretty well so if you're looking at a subject you can find the other interesting videos on that subject.

edit: In response to the NEXT two or three posts, OK, I thought it was genuine, and tnx for debunking it.
Next time I find a vid worth posting, maybe I should delete all of this post and put it here. (:

Plug - A Short Film about robots raising the last human girl on earth.

https://vimeo.com/109873939

Quote
Directorial debut from internationally renowned designer and concept artist, David Levy (Tron legacy, Prometheus, Ender's Game, Tomorrowland, Avatar2). The short film is the first 15 minutes of a science fiction TV series Levy has outlined and hopes to film. Unlike the highly VFX-ed science fiction films inundating audiences today, PLUG is a return to 1970's classics like Star Wars and Mad Max with a gritty universe made from mostly live props and real life settings. Enjoy and share!

"On a post-apocalyptic Earth, Leila Dawn (Natalie Floyd), is the only human survivor. Raised by Robots after humanity abandoned the planet they destroyed with nuclear warfare, Leila cannot forget her parents nor ignore her yearning to find other organic life. A hunt she sets out on with a Military Unit, Marker (Lex Cassar), leads Leila to discover the reality she’s been denied—a reality that sparks her ultimate quest."

John Deere vs Steam Tractor (:

Looks like he just invented a whole new sport. (:
I think he should add a pair of small inconspicuous CO2 equipped self-inflating floatation bags to the frame in case he stalls out and accidentally sinks.
