Bogart put down a mandate for the next [chat] to be Christmas-y. So...

:whistle:
You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch
You really are a heel...

    I don't know if there's anything that Quibi could have done one way or another to get my money.

    I just don't want another content subscription? Between Netflix (paid) and Twitch (free) I have more than enough to watch whenever I want. And the inertia is real.

    How was quibi marketed because I remember absolutely no marketing or ad spots for it whatsoever?

    Also how do I listen to this trash panda thing?

    @desc being untethered is also useful for like walking around while on a call, whether it's a zoom call from a computer or on the phone. Or when you're in a plane seat and want to go to the bathroom—leave the headphones in/on and just get up.

    It might not sound like a big deal but it's incredibly freeing when you do it. It's one of those "feels like the future" things. It's right up there with wireless controllers, which also suck to have to charge but it makes a big difference not having a cable.

    Charging headphones sucks because it's one of those things we never thought needed charging, but everything needs charging these days. I actually bought a USB to 4x USB micro spider cable to add to my little charging station that already has 1 lightning, 1 apple watch, and 1 lightning/usb micro/usb c spider cable. It's nuts.

    My favorite Quibi fact is that its entire executive team blamed covid for its failure.

    Oh you mean this period in time when streaming entertainment saw massive, network-melting growth across the board, in all market segments: free, ad-supported, subscription, longform, shortform, prerecorded, and live.

    That's what killed your business? The most friendly and forgiving market environment you could have possibly launched in?

    The problem with dressing up as The Grinch to fuck your girlfriend is that you either do a shit job at it and she's pissed or:

    You lean into it and really do it well. You get a great suit and even do the makeup. You learn the smile and practice the mannerisms. You become The Grinch and seduce her and really give her the business.

    Well, now you have to do it again. At the very least you've got to do it every Christmas. This isn't a one time thing.

    By crossing that line you now either have to break up with her or this is a new hobby.

    On the first point, I have absolutely no idea, because I also had never heard of it until collapsed under the weight of the incredible volumes of venture capital it burned through

    On the second, it's a podcast, pick a podcast platform (iTunes, stitcher, etc) and you should be able to just search for it

    I'm more a "You shall love your crooked neighbour / With all your crooked heart" guy

    Speaking of which, I think we need to add an accent (doesn't matter what kind, but it appears everyone hates the diaeresis [the umlaut of the New Yorker]) to any vowel that is at the beginning of any syllable; no one says "crook'd", we say crookèd

    I think the compromise position would be to kidnap the girlfriend and ravish her in front of the XMas tree, just without the costume.
