Baldwin goes into detail on his vision for the new show here:
Speaking of that scene - I have never met anyone who's seen it that has a "middle-of-the-road" opinion on it. They either love it or they hate it, and they tend to either like or hate Baldwin because of it. I think it's terrific - in particular because of the context of "the speech": he's basically trying to fire up salesmen to sell phony real estate "deals" to unsuspecting "leads." Obviously, the reason the movie gets very little widespread TV exposure is because they'd have to censor more than 50% of it due to the language and "politically incorrect" references. Baldwin pulling the brass balls out of his briefcase and their strategic positioning never fails to crack me up. There's another great scene where Al Pacino is berating the "office manager," Kevin Spacey about "deadbeat" leads. See it here:
And speaking of Pacino and Spacey, here's another scene that really rocks the house:
....and after watching those scenes, this is a lot of fun:
I guess I'll have to catch him next week now!
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer is the best way to get through the spin!
Sebe and or anyone got any advice for me regarding speeding up the buffering of these by Sebe and others. Mine either freezes up or moves at a snails pace, stalls out, the starts again, and again.
I would appreciate any help or advice.
Sebe: I am not smart enough to have a smart phone. :)...my phone is about to reach prehistoric dating.
I can pull up most every link with a video but over 50% start then stop...start then stop...go a little further then stop...etc. etc. No continuity. I have a Lap top by Hewlett Packard with windows 7, and for the most part am pleased with it. Cept for them dam videos I want to see. I have tried holding PAUSE and in some cases I can see the buffering line moving at a snails pace, but moving nonetheless.
I am open to any suggestions. Thanks.
My daughter has a laptop - the current one is an Acer but the old one was an HP. I tried to use it several times but I did find it was very slow compared to the PCs I've been using over the years. One possibility with what you are describing is that your internet connection might be getting "overloaded." I had that problem a few times with the broadband modem (and even the wireless router my smartphones use). The solution was to "power cycle" the modem, which means turning it off for a minute or more; then turn it back on. This sometimes solved the problem.
One other possibility might be the status of your cache - which if it is loaded with files can significantly slow down your PC's operations. I am a fanatic for keeping my cache cleaned out, and actually accomplish this three different ways:
*I set my web browser (Internet Explorer 10) to automatically delete temporary files and cookies when I exit the browser. You do this through the drop down menu at the top of the web browser. Access via "Tools" -- "Internet Options" -- and "Advanced" to these settings.
*In my experience, some files still "persist" anyway even when you use these settings, so I manually clean out my cache at least daily by using the Windows "Disk Cleanup" utility. You can access this feature by clicking on the Start button; then "All Programs" -- "Accessories" -- then "System Tools." I created a desktop shortcut for this utility so I don't have to go through the start menu all the time.
*Finally - some system security programs have a disk cleanup feature that lets you clean out the cache, cookies, temporary files and more to keep your PC running faster. I have McAfee Security Center (which came with the PC), and it has a "QuickClean" feature in the "PC and Network Tools" section. This works similar to some older stand-alone disk cleanup programs I used to have like Window Washer and Norton Utilities. Same concept except this feature is built in to the security software so you don't have to buy it separately.
Let me know what happens if you try any of the above.
NOTE: Before Window Washer and Norton's disk cleanup utilty was Quarterdeck Cleansweep (which Norton bought and incorporated into their "Utilities"). IMHO - the original Cleansweep was a superior product because it cleaned not only the cache, temp files, cookies, etc., but also got rid of left-over files, folders, and registry entries from uninstalled programs. It was oustanding.
Thanks Sebe. Deep 6 my comment about editing your posts. You have provided me with numerous methods to try.
