Sadly, it’s nothing we haven’t seen before in explicit detail, but thanks to an anonymous tipster, we now know that Lisa Laporte — TWiT’s CEO — is perfectly OK with her crotch shot legs being used by a leg fetish page on Instagram.
Proving that there is no topic Know How will not cover badly, Episode 308 was an unexpected gift to TWiT viewers everywhere. We were magically transformed back to a time where Americans got out the ol’ needle, thread and bobbin and made stuff we can now buy at Old Navy for $19.95.
Instead of recruiting someone with a lot of sewing experience (i.e. anyone in @NateOG’s bloodline) they settled for the camera-ready and available @PDelahanty, TWiT’s “web engineer” who’s been aimlessly wandering the single hall of the studio for months since compiling the results of the TWiT annual survey.
Which leads us to the question-du-jour, specifically why is TWiT giving us an entire show on sewing? Has Know How simply exhausted every tech topic already? Did some sewing machine company pay for a native ad? Is it simply to punish Bryan Burnett on a weekly basis? (he may agree with this statement). Or was it intended to teach catholic priests how to perform emergency repairs on garments?
“Watch my hands. When my hands go down, everybody applaud… Whoa yeah! Yeah yeah yeah! Woo woo, woooooo!” — Leo Laporte
It’s hard to believe Leo Laporte’s failed, ego-inflating side project The New Screen Savers is still having new episodes produced. I guess that’s what happens when you have an admitted failure of a CEO like Lisa Laporte.
In a move that should surprise no one, #Soup had to resort to having Anthony — the only one with any talent left at TWiT — “Simon says” the Amazon Echo into repeating the cold open for the show.
We’ve previously written about how they had to have their rent-a-cop read the cold open. Previously, he had to force a The Tech Guy viewer to do it.
Just admit TNSS isn’t working, Leo. It didn’t restore TWiT to glory. TNSS is never going to happen.
Lisa Laporte’s fantastical dream of having the “TV show” syndicated on airlines and college campuses is similarly never going to happen.
The show is terrible. It’s boring. It’s devoid of content. And the saddest thing is… it’s depressing. It’s just sad to watch you do it to yourself weekly.
I will give Anthony kudos for the production of Megan Morrone’s acting debut in the short below. It gave us lots of great pictures of Megan.
Thanks to an anon from #drama for the video.
