When the economy tanked, it fell to money-starved governments to bail everyone out. Today’s youth had nothing to do with that profligacy, but are being called upon to “grow up” and shoulder the adult responsibility of paying the debt off.
Today’s youth face a grim future not of their own making. Is it any wonder that they’re angry about it? What they are asking for is what previous generations so eagerly gobbled up for themselves. If those generations now believe their entitlements were too generous, then, perhaps, in the spirit of sharing the burden, they might want to give some of them back.
Interesting way of looking at it…
My parents and their friends certainly wouldn’t see it that way. Of course they were all born in the ’50s.
This Engadget article contains a comparison between 48fps (50p) and 24fps. Sure, your 48fps looks “smoother” but to my eyes, as well as anyone who grew up watching films it looks unnatural, like a soap opera. It’s that same look that lots of Sony TVs add with their damned Motion Flow (which is the reason I cannot watch movies on my parents large 50” screen at home).
To those who prefer video games, it probably looks great.
Let’s also not forget they they didn’t even shoot 24p, the just down-converted their 50p video and added a bunch of filters so it’s not a true fair comparison.
I absolutely love this alternate remix that appeared on 45 RPM singles of Off the Wall. It’s more than just a simple edit, it’s a whole new mix. There’s lots of added guitar bits and it has an overal brighter and more exciting sound.
Sorry guys, I don’t care about your theories for Hitchcock’s “original intentions”. There’s a reason that, in the end, the film was shot flat. It’s how Hitchcock intended it, and to mess with the master’s work is sacrilege.
3D retrofitting is no better than the colourizing of black and white films, and to argue otherwise is sheer ignorance.
I’m all for a re-release of Rear Window, it’s one of my favourite Hitchcock films. But in 2D. The way it was intended.

Batman is the narrator. Fucking Batman!
Shut down the internet. This is the greatest video ever.
But, it turns out, the whole album is actually really good. I find most albums these days to have one or two really great singles and whole bunch of filler material. But Gotye’s Making Mirrors actually has a large number of great tracks and like many great albums from the heydey of popular music feels like a cohesive whole.
Best of all it clocks in at just under 45 minutes meaning they cut all the crap and left you with 12 absolutely fantastic tunes.
A few hours ago, I landed in Los Angeles, turned on my phone, and confirmed what you already know. Sony Pictures Television is replacing me as showrunner on Community, with two seasoned fellows that I’m sure are quite nice…
I had no idea he was forcibly removed from the show… Sony and NBC are now playing in dangerous waters since I honestly feel that Harmon brought a lot to what made Community what it has become (read: a show for nerds by nerds)
I do want to correct a couple points of spin, now that I’m free to do so:
The important one is this quote from Bob Greenblatt in which he says he’s sure I’m going to be involved somehow, something like that. That’s a misquote. I think he meant to say he’s sure cookies are yummy, because he’s never called me once in the entire duration of his employment at NBC. He didn’t call me to say he was starting to work there, he didn’t call me to say I was no longer working there and he definitely didn’t call to ask if I was going to be involved. I’m not saying it’s wrong for him to have bigger fish to fry, I’m just saying, NBC is not a credible source of All News Dan Harmon.
However, if I actually chose to go to the office, I wouldn’t have any power there. Nobody would have to do anything I said, ever. I would be “offering” thoughts on other people’s scripts, not allowed to rewrite them, not allowed to ask anyone else to rewrite them, not allowed to say whether a single joke was funny or go near the edit bay, etc. It’s….not really the way the previous episodes got done. I was what you might call a….hands on producer. Are my….periods giving this enough….pointedness? I’m not saying you can’t make a good version of Community without me, but I am definitely saying that you can’t make my version of it unless I have the option of saying “it has to be like this or I quit” roughly 8 times a day.
Sadly there are no real answers here, just some speculation (for more see this Hacker News post), but I think it’s all very good speculation.
It’s nice to see there are other fans as confused and hurt by the whole thing as I am. Hopefully, eventually, someone will start to behave like the professional they make themselves out to be and release a statement to the fans.
