  1. I think Jimmy is a genuine, upbeat, outgoing person as a rule. He's doing well at home even though it's evident he'd rather be back in the studio. Technically speaking, his video and audio are pretty good. I saw a British comedy/current events show called The Ranganation that was extremely well done from home. The studio was set up in the host's garage with professional graphics and sound, and with remote camera operators and a director. The panelists and guests were on nice large monitors. I enjoy Seth but he's the worst technically as far as just sitting directly in front of a fixed (cell phone?) camera, plus bad acoustics.
  2. I'm enjoying seeing the 8G band members in their homes and appreciate them moving around! There's an amusingTwitter account that's been rating the backgrounds of newspeople and others broadcasting from home -- what else do we have to do?
  3. I've been rewatching the previous seasons, mostly to track Patrick's varying facial hair. I really want a special of him modeling all the garments he said he'd like to wear: glittering harem pants, silk robes, beach shorts with pom poms. The progression since 2013 from pattern pinning to pattern weights is very noticeable. Esme is more enjoyable to me than May, just because she has more personality. Patrick seems to defer to her more than he did to May. I only vaguely recalled the contestants and who won except for season 3, where I even remembered some of the specific garments. That was a nice group of sewers. I miss Claudia. And Patrick calling her Winkleman.
  4. Not free, but it's available to buy it on Amazon!
  5. I was most looking forward to seeing Bob, Trixie and Monet but ended up being thoroughly entertained. The celebs, whoever they were, ended up being adorable. I love the "put regular people in drag" challenges anyway so this was made for me. Insights, tears, oats-feeling!
  6. Yay! I'm stupidly excited. Joe is back as host. I like him but Claudia will always have my heart.
  7. I'm glad none of the queens pulled out the I don't know Madonna very well excuse. When it comes to foundational drag icons, I don't care how young or "not from here" they are, the careless ignorance is annoying. Now, if that moment happened and the editors hid it from us, my blood pressure thanks them. If that moment happened and I missed it, don't tell me!
  8. Wearing masks is the herd immunity debate again, right? We've been told from the beginning that their use was encouraged only by symptomatic people in order to protect others, but if enough of us wear them, protection extends that much further. Even disposable paper and homemade washable masks help prevent droplets from being sprayed when people sneeze or cough. Why not be extra cautious? I just don't understand the reasoning behind health authorities recommending against wearing simple masks from the start. Schwans is another option for anyone struggling with food delivery. It's all frozen but includes vegetables and fruit. They seem to be well stocked so far; deliveries are every two weeks in my area. (My preference for milk and other quick items is a 3am run to an empty Circle K > gloves and mask > disinfect afterwards.) Speaking of that, my hands are so chapped and dry! I lotion them as frequently as I wash but the alcohol-based sanitizer is winning.
  9. Robocalls -- The entire article isn't worth linking, but the gist is: "The volume of robocalls nationwide has plunged as overseas call centers have closed for lockdowns and social distancing, according to YouMail, an Irvine tech company that tracks robocall volume on a monthly basis." Faint silver lining, I suppose!
  10. Yes, price gouging is wrong and my actions are encouraging it. Still, I was willing to pay $18 for two bottles of Lysol spray except that eBay removed that seller before they were able to ship. I tried again and the same thing happened but that person worked faster and at least got the order mailed before eBay shut them down. I'm old with diabetes and an autoimmune disease that affects my lungs ... pretty much a sitting duck! I saw that San Francisco has banned shoppers from bringing their own reusable bags, cups, etc. into stores. Six of one, half dozen of the other, seems like.
  11. I live in a retirement community of 110K where "seniors only" hours are, as you can imagine, madness. I needed to pick up a prescription at a grocery store pharmacy and thought I'd nip in at 7am during senior hours since the pharmacy is also open early. I got there at 6:55 am and the lot was full, with a line of customers farther than I could see (with people crammed together, no less.) I stood off to the side waiting for people to file in, but after 18 minutes with no let-up, I begged the staff member guarding the exit door to let me get my prescription, which she kindly allowed. I guess the early-goers figure they might find items that are quickly sold out after being restocked overnight, but I'd rather chew glass. (Granted, I say this as someone who can afford and has been exclusively using grocery delivery, but so can most of the line-standers.)
  12. Trevor! Look at the camera when you talk! His eyes and head keep swiveling all over the place when he's interviewing someone. He's seemed tired and a bit low the last couple of recordings where he's wearing the green sweatshirt. I like seeing the correspondents do a bit together. Being retired, "What day is it?" is almost exclusively the only thing I ask Alexa.
  13. David Spade has an app with sound effects that he's been using to throw in some laughs, crickets, sirens, etc. It's meant to be funny but also surprisingly helps with rhythm/pacing so that everything's not just joke > silence. It's one thing if the hosts are basically just riffing to camera, but reading monologue jokes off a piece of paper is awkward. At least Fallon's wife often gives a quiet chuckle. Bottom line, I'm grateful all of them are not only doing something but managing to make it entertaining!
  14. Trevor was a guest on Fallon's online show last night.
