    I wonder if Ernie Hudson gets much work. He is probably the one that is the happiest to ride the Ghostbusters wave.

    Edit: It looks like he has been in a good amount of stuff.

    Yeah Hudson is in a lot, he's had a good career, he just also really fucking loved Ghostbusters and the fact that he'll still go to conventions and dress up like Winston and take pictures with people is awesome. I've got one of him and my dad from a con in Birmingham and my Dad talked to him for like 10 minutes about his heel role in The Substitute

    Ernie could still quote the "power perceived is power achieved" line.

    Good dude A+ on the beer list.

    Spotify is here in Stockholm, maybe I should get hired, fix their shit, and then quit because they are very well known for not paying very well for software engineers and mostly pull people in with "Spotify is a big cool company".

    Is this Plex thing good for music, too? I've been occasionally thinking about maybe starting to look for some cloud based thing to rip my albums to.

    I use YouTube Music (previously Google Play Music) specifically because at the time I was looking for a streaming service, it was the only option I could find that let you upload all of your own stuff. Now I'm just sort of stuck with it. I feel like the music suggestions are actually not great i.e. "suggested for you" playlists don't really branch out much so I keep hearing stuff that I've already listened to, which is frustrating. You'd think Google would be good at this stuff since they know everything else about me.

    edit: One of the kinda nice things about YT music is you can also listen to any music that only exists on youtube (particularly live stuff). The flip side is that if you 'like' music on youtube it includes it on your 'liked music' auto-playlist. Which sounds useful but when I'm listening to a shuffled mix of music I enjoy I probably don't want that 90 minute concert to be included thank you very much.

    Or is PC spotify basically always "cast" from your mobile device, sort of like the desktop versions of WhatsApp and signal?

    it's more like there's a primary device that's actually spitting out the music into an active session but if you're logged in elsewhere, it'll behave as if it's being cast

    if you're pooping and listening to music on your phone and logged in on your desktop, someone could change what you're listening to from there

    Ghostbusters is Dan Ackroyd's baby, but I get the impression he wanted to retire from it. The audience keeps wanting the original actors.

    Two observations:

    1) Oat cream doesn't work as well as oat milk in a white Russian

    2) Drinking what equates to 160ml of spirits in five minutes is a surefire shortcut to being buzzed

    Firstly, in official competitions, only 18 horses are provided for 36 athletes. This means each horses must jump twice, which not only places an undue amount of stress on each animal, but also puts the athletes who ride each horse second at a disadvantage.
    "Why is it only 18 horses are provided at a competition where there are 36 athletes?" Murray asked in an interview with Insider earlier in November.

    "Often you cross your fingers and hope that the person in that first round rides without any damage, otherwise, you're then managing that going into your round. Why can't they just provide 36 horses so everyone has their own?
    The second issue with the current system of allocating horses is that the task of providing horses for elite competitions is given to the hosts of the events. This means that the quality of the animals provided can vary drastically depending on where in the world athletes are competing.
    Sometimes, this can have disastrous consequences, such as at a World Cup event in Acapulco, Mexico in 2014, where Murray said the horses provided were "limping" and had "open wounds."

    "The horses they had sourced were local carting horses," she said.

    "They had open wounds, they were limping. The course was very low, but none of the horses could get around it. They had never been schooled in show jumping.

    That event was cancelled when athletes boycotted it over horse welfare concerns, though the UIPM never formally acknowledged that as the reason, saying instead it was down to extreme heat at the venue.

    That sounds like a clearly awful rule so of course the Olympics refuses to change it

    Maybe the horse was a jerk that deserved to be punched, you know?

    The modern pentathlon was supposed to exhibit the skills expected of a modern military officer - hence the need to control an unfamiliar horse

    This was true of Annika Schleu's horse, Saint Boy, in Tokyo.

    It had already been ridden by another rider and had refused to jump. After Schleu was still allowed to ride it and it refused to jump again, the German's coach, Kim Raisner, struck the horse in frustration.

    It may strike some viewers as harsh, but I maintain that all of the humans in this story should be killed.

    Motorcycles were proposed in the 1970's.
    Which is why it was such a surprise to find that the sport has been going around in circles on this particular argument for a long time. The legendary Jim Fox, who won team gold for Great Britain at Montreal 76, has been an advocate for years. “In my day I argued they should have exchanged the horse for a motorcycle,” Fox told the Guardian in 1992, “but they didn’t like the idea of motorised assistance in the Olympics. Why not a mountain bike?” Back then, the modern pentathlon was under threat from De Coubertin’s successor Juan Antonio Samaranch, who wanted to replace it with a sport people actually take part in, such as golf or tennis.
    They already shrunk the pentathlon from a four to five day event to a one day even in 1996

    It's a five day event or a ten day event and they have to find water and food and shit.

    Russia would absolutely own us
