The transfers are terrible. The audio is hissy and noisy. The resolution is low. The aspect ratio is old.
And none of that matters.
The huge wave of nostalgia is legit. Liquid Television was MTV’s animation and sketch showcase, providing real cable TV airtime to independent producers and animators. Often silly, sometimes trippy, occasionally profound. This was the birthplace for properties like Aeon Flux and Beavis and Butthead.
A user by the name of “MTV” has uploaded all three (poorly transfered) seasons up to Archive.org. It doesn’t appear to be an authorized account actually representing the (former) Music Television cable channel. The uploads are under a Public Domain license, which also doesn’t make a lot of sense from a Viacom owned brand. You might need to jump on these before they’re pulled.
I’ll always have fond memories of staying up late to watch content which felt so subversive for the time. That feeling of unease and awe. Even if you’re not a 90’s kid, you can get a really good look at indie production before we had the internet as a distribution platform.
***Update!*** LG is extending this promotion! You’ll be able to land a spare battery and a MicroSD card until June 30th! Pretty great incentive to shopping their newest flagship phone. If you were on the fence, you can check out our mega collection of G4 videos, or you can jump straight to shopping the LG G4 online.
LG seems to be sticking it to Samsung in two areas where the Galaxy S6 can’t compete: swapping the battery and expanding the storage.
For a limited time, people who have purchased the G4, or folks who will be buying the G4, can receive a free spare battery, a battery cradle, and a 32GB Sandisk MicroSD card for free. The promotion runs through July 6, and most outlets should be carrying the G4 in early June.
Carrier pricing for the G4 hasn’t been revealed yet, though T-Mobile’s contest values it at $600, well under the price of the 32GB Galaxy S6. As the G4 already has better battery life, will doubling that run time and storage for free tempt you over Samsung’s 64GB Galaxy S6 at almost $800? Drop us a comment below!
If you were shopping the LG G4 on AT&T, pre-sale starts tomorrow.
Big Blue lands the G4 with either plastic or their exclusive black leather rear plate. The upgrade to premium leather will cost you though. The plastic G4 will cost $199 on two year contract or $630 outright. The leather G4 will bump you up to $239.99 on contract or $669 off contract.
Pre-Orders for the LG G4 start today at T-Mobile, and Lil Magenta is throwing in a sweet offer for folks putting their money down early.
Not only does it appear that they are selling the leather edition for the same price as the plastic back G4, but they’ll also throw in a 128GB MicroSD card for free. On top of LG’s promotion of a 32GB and a spare battery, early G4 adopters could be rocking some serious storage on their phones for cheap.
To entice select Android owners to try screen casting through Google Play compatible devices like the Chromecast, Google realized people might want to stream things other than Youtube videos.
If you have a Nexus 5 phone or a Nexus 7 tablet, opening the Google Play Movies & TV app might present you an offer for a free copy of Gravity. Fantastic film to stream onto a good TV.
No word on how long this deal might last, so you might to jump on it sooner rather than later. Just no one tell Google that after I grabbed the film from my Nexus 7, I immediately fired it up on a Note 4 to stream to my Chromecast OK? Cool?
If you do not have a Nexus, apparently you are offered a copy of Shaun the Sheep: The Big Chase… Not quite as nice as Gravity, but that’s still better than nothing right?
Google’s little, inexpensive, wunder-streaming HDMI stick is now a one year old, and no birthday should ever pass without celebrating it with presents. Google’s gift to Chromecast users is a free three month trial of Play Music All Access. The caveat is you can’t already be signed up for the All Access service, so those of us all ready paying for it aren’t invited to the party.
Not a lot to this post. If you dig DE LA SOUL (and you don’t already own their entire catalog), they’re hooking you up today only!
