I always enjoy this movie, especially all the Dangerfield scenes. What a menace!

Caddyshack seems like the most decadent, coke-fueled movie ever. I’m sure it was…it just jumps off the screen. Ted Knight’s role was great too.

You know a movie is going to be full of world-class performances when Bill Murray's isn't even in the top three.

(Dangerfield > Knight > Chase for me in that movie)

Knight really nailed that jerky, snobby type so well. Wasn’t sympathetic in the least (nobody in this movie was), except maybe that poor little gopher.

That was a huge trend in 70’s/80’s comedy, the “slobs vs. snobs” thing. Animal House, Meatballs, Caddyshack, Trading Places, etc. all centered around, or had a major sequence based on, free-wheeling, good-time party-hounds making life miserable for the clench-jawed, old-money “society” crowd. And there’s always an SNL connection to the “slobs” side: Belushi, Murphy, Murray, etc.

That’s SNL and Lorne Michaels’ legacy: low-rent movie shitheads who, in real life, nobody would ever support, cheer on, laugh at, etc.

Bumping the old YouTube gems thread for a little shameless self-promotion. (No monetization. Just trying to spread a little joy.)

I made this!

Oh, now you've gone and nerded it up!

I sent this to Jess, because, well, she'll understand.

That's awesome! Good job, Brad. Gave me a much needed early morning chuckle.

Nice. I’m just thinking about how many hours went into getting all the clips.

Thanks for the kind words, y'all. Glad to know I'm in good company who know how to appreciate the classics.

So. Many. Hours.

I keep an archive of text transcripts of most of the episodes and movies, and I spent many long nights searching for text and scrubbing through videos (I also have local rips of almost all of Trek on my NAS) as I built out this big table of filenames, timestamps, and dialog phrases in a CSV file. I then wrote a small Python program to read through that CSV file and extract… oh… 240 individual MP4 files, each typically only a couple seconds long. Then I took several more days to arrange the clips, fiddle with timing, try to improve inconsistent color grading, fade and isolate audio, slide equalizers to make completely unrelated dialog seem slightly less unrelated, and sometimes go right back to the drawing board because an audio clip sounded awful next to others.

My finished timeline zoomed out…


hides a lot of little tweaks when zoomed in…


And then I redid it in a completely opposite aspect ratio to make two YouTube shorts because I'm a masochist.

I don't really spend a lot of time in NLEs, but it scratches an itch I've had cemented in my brain for almost 30 years since I was first exposed to Avid VideoShop on my '94 Performa 638CD* with its built-in AV capture card. I only get to scratch that itch maybe once or twice a year if I'm lucky, but I try to hone my novice abilities a little more with each opportunity. My dogged persistence tries to make up for my lack in actual professional skills.


* Even though it was technically woefully under-powered and over-priced for its time, it was my first Mac — not a hand-me-down or a temporary loaner or some junk DOS computer from a family member's office — and I loved every bit of it.
