As 'Anchorman' Turn 20, Will Ferrell Recalls Reshoots After Poor Test Screenings – The film originally received a 50/100 score in its first test screening, forcing the film to get a new ending.
  • “The first version of ‘Anchorman’ is basically the movie ‘Alive,’ where the year is 1976, and we are flying to Philadelphia, and all the newsmen from around the country are flying in to have some big convention,” Ferrell said. “[My character] Ron convinces the pilot that he knows how to fly the charter jet, and he immediately crash-lands it in the mountains. And it’s just the story of them surviving and trying to get off the mountainside. They clipped a cargo plane, and the cargo plane crashed as well, close to them, and it was carrying only boxes of orangutans and Chinese throwing stars. So throughout the movie we’re being stalked by orangutans who are killing, one by one, the team off with throwing stars. And Veronica Corningstone keeps saying things like, ‘Guys, I know if we just head down we’ll hit civilization.’ And we keep telling her, ‘Wrong.’ She doesn’t know what we’re talking about. So that was the first version of the movie.”

    This sounds hilarious. I know the cast of Anchorman could have made this one work.

  • Chip Enjoyers - What's your favourite brand/type of chip?
  • I’m not a chip guy, but I bought a family sized bag of cheddar lays poppables for a long train ride a few months ago, and damn near ate the whole thing by myself. Haven’t bought another for fear of doing it again. Also the bag was like $4!

  • Predator teeth
  • Right? I’m all for vegans making a moral choice to not eat animal products, I think the world would be a better place if we all did, but you don’t need to justify it with incorrect biological conjecture.

  • As someone who is aging. Late thirties. How can I keep my finger on the pulse of current trends, particularly in music?
  • Spotify is much better for music discovery / public playlists. I use Apple Music because it’s cheaper with the family plan, but if I’m wanting new music I will often open up Spotify just to view the playlists there and add the songs I like to my Apple Music playlists.

  • The IT experience?
  • The worst. Our IT is outsourced to some bottom-of-the-barrel garbage company, and they both have no idea what they are doing and work in a different timezone, so you have to wait a working day for responses like ‘did you try turning it off and on again?’. Everyone just emails the head of IT with their issues, which defeats the whole point of the system.

  • Developers of Lemmy who worked both in mobile video game and console/pc video game industries, which did you prefer, and why?
  • To expand on this from a different perspective, I’m not a game developer, I have an analytics background. A mobile game company popped up on my Indeed feed not too long ago, looking to fill what basically amounted to a position whose sole goal was to make their games as addictive as possible. I’m not saying that those kinds of roles don’t exist in more traditional game development, but it seems par for the course with mobile gaming.
