All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring.

Hemp-Glasses

Haters gonna hate…

Hemp Sunglasses

Years ago I bought sunglasses and promptly broke the single-pieced glass, right around the singular screw holding it in place (Not the most durable design/purchase decision ever). So into a drawer they went forgotten. Then one day I got really bored and went rummaging around armed with my trusty ball of string.

Swear Cuts – Oscars 2012 Profanity Reels – Reverse Censorship

In the nick of time…
Update: I’ve added a “Strict” edit of all the movies that leaves only the swear words found in the No Swearing dictionary or Google dirty words list, and removes the insults, curses, some other fun and random words. Also added: better stats, more words, other odds and ends.

A few years ago I edited the Oscar nominees for the ‘Best Picture’ category into swear reels, removing everything but the profanity/swears/insults, and ended up with a few fast bursts of jump cut cursing. The resulting reels were somewhat entertaining and maybe gave a different perspective on the nominees; allowing a movie to be judged solely on how it carries itself in the strange land of the profane; or something deep like that. Yeah. Mostly somewhat entertaining.

Well, time for another go around! With almost twice the movies, for your consideration:

The Nominees

All nine movies for the ‘Best Picture’ category of the 84th Academy Awards ceremony a.k.a. Oscars 2012 cut into separate profanity reels! (Click Name/Pic to view on Youtube or watch them together below)

Naught too fancy, ‘twar simpler times.

All of the above:

All nine edited movies put together in one long burst:

Sorry about the logo in between the movies, it’s a leftover from stringing the above together, and I didn’t have the time or imagination to change all nine endings… If you like your Swear reels a bit more basic see the Strict edit below.

Runtime : 1128 min | Swear Cuts Edit : 7:57 min | Ratio: 142:1 | Nr Of Swear Cuts : ~452
0.41 swears/minute | Strict : 164
Well! That’s something!

Strict

I went through the reels again and removed everything but the swears/bad words that are either in the No Swearing dictionary, or the Dirty words list from Google. If you think the above is too inclusive then this bare bones version should do the trick.

Runtime : 1128 min | Strict Edit : 1:41 min | Ratio: 670:1 | Strict Swears: 164

Stats And Background Radiation

So I wrote it all in a letter…
Stats And Background Radiation

When new content stopped appearing, traffic and interest quickly dwindled ’till a faint rustle, random individual pops and hisses. Google, Stumble Upon, Google, Google, blog, Reddit. A dozen hits a day. Every once in a while a small repost peak hit, but soon enough the signal cut back to static.

A look at some DHRECK.com stats.

Return of the Press START to continue

Ahum…. yeah.
Recycling excuses/cut-ups.

Hey! It’s been a while. So… A lot of things happened… now I’m back.

I updated the website and server, added several new services, caching, sharing, and social options + a thousand little tweaks should make the site run pretty smoothly, until it doesn’t. I’ve also created and edited a bunch of new content, lined em up and (mostly) ready to go, starting with some stuff that has been hiding in my #projects folder for a while now.

First a few small things to test the blog (coming up next some new Swear Cuts for the Oscars 2012) then, if everything seems to hold together, I’ll post the rest of my Wii-Mote Mods. Finally posting that fully skinned and modded version of the mote started in my tutorial post, followed by a couple experimental mods and some weirdness.

I’ll also let some of my old ideas go in the “Where Ideas Go To Die” section. Ideas that are impossible, expensive, a bit weird and mostly just never going to happen. Add to that some other one-off material and I think I’ve got a stew going. Soon.

The whole world - in his hands...
So Long….
and thanks for all the fish…
