The Start Of Something Beautiful

The Start Of Something Beautiful | Making Movies | Scoop.it

Always in my thoughts, you are
Always in my dreams, you are
I got your voice on tape
I got your spirit in a photograph
Always out of reach, you are
Cold inside my arms, you are
Simple like a child, you are
I remember when you took my hand and led me through the rain
Down inside my soul, you are

I'm going to show the way I feel unless I find you give a damn
The more I get to know the less I find that I understand
? the time was meant ? good friends
I thought it was the start of something beautiful, well think again

Thank you hater: comedian hits back at trolls in mock tribute

Thank you hater: comedian hits back at trolls in mock tribute | Making Movies | Scoop.it
Isabel Fay's tirade against online bullies – which features Richard Herring and Josie Long – becomes an online hit...

 

A comedian's mock musical tribute to the online "trolls" who targeted her has gone viral on a day when a mother who faced the same problem won legal backing to have her tormenters' identities disclosed.

The video of Thank You Hater, which was written and performed by Isabel Fay, features her delivering an ironically cheerful song-and-dance routine after initially showing her sitting in a cafe, where she reads a comment posted online by a troll saying: 'i hope you get cancar. but id have a go on ur tits'.

The clip, which has been viewed tens of thousands of times hours after it was posted on YouTube, includes contributions from other actors and comedians recounting the gratuitous things said about them by commenters. Contributors to the video include Noel Clarke, Richard Herring, Helen Lederer and Josie Long.

Fay's routine provides a typical example: "You wished me cancer and misspelled cancer/But I know that it's a metaphor/You hope that I will grow/Just like the tumour you hoped would kill me/Inside the tits on which you said you'd also like a go."

At another point in the routine, she cheerfully sings: "I'm really sure, that if I met you, you probably wouldn't rape me like you promised that you would."

Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout

Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout | Making Movies | Scoop.it

The Internet's reach is so pervasive, it feels as though it has always been around. The reality is that the web is still in its infancy, and we don't really understand the risks it poses to our mental health. In fact, various experts, such as Larry D. Rosen, a psychologist and author of "iDisorder," believe that personal gadgets are making us mentally ill and are exacerbating other problems such as narcissism, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Other mental health professionals have already identified disorders ranging from "Facebook depression" to "phantom vibration syndrome."

Realistically, most of us don't have the luxury of disconnecting from the Internet, particularly communication professionals whose work depends more and more on it. However, there are various things you can do to curtail the negative effects it may have and prevent digital burnout.

In praise of misfits

In praise of misfits | Making Movies | Scoop.it
IN 1956 William Whyte argued in his bestseller, “The Organisation Man”, that companies were so in love with “well-rounded” executives that they fought a “fight against genius”.

 

Recruiters have noticed that the mental qualities that make a good computer programmer resemble those that might get you diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome: an obsessive interest in narrow subjects; a passion for numbers, patterns and machines; an addiction to repetitive tasks; and a lack of sensitivity to social cues. Some joke that the internet was invented by and for people who are “on the spectrum”, as they put it in the Valley. Online, you can communicate without the ordeal of meeting people.

Play the Rings of a Tree Trunk Like a Record

What would the trunk of a tree sound like if a cross section of it were played like an LP? With his creation Years, Bartholomäus Traubeck attempts to answer that question by using a turntable, PlayStation Eye Camera, a stepper motor to control the arm, and computer running Ableton Live. As you’ll hear in the video above, the rings of the tree trunk, as interpreted by this piece, create an eerie and ominous piano track that sounds like it was taken from psychological horror film. Who knew trees were so emo? [via Creative Applications]

6 Movie and TV Universes That Overlap in Mind-blowing Ways

6 Movie and TV Universes That Overlap in Mind-blowing Ways | Making Movies | Scoop.it
While odd fictional relations are nothing new, these are mind-blowing on a story-altering level.

 

In Pulp Fiction, John Travolta plays a guy called Vincent Vega. In Reservoir Dogs, most of the characters are known only by their code names -- except Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), who happens to be called Vic Vega. Coincidence? Nope, Tarantino has confirmed that they are brothers, and at one point he even considered doing a prequel about the two before they died in their respective movies (though he says it's unlikely now because of the actors' ages).

Why Great Television Is More Like A Novel Than A Play | Mind Matters | Big Think

Why Great Television Is More Like A Novel Than A Play

David Berreby on June 10, 2012, 9:15 AM

Why do still watch plays by Euripides, born some 2,500 years ago, or Shakespeare, who is nearly 450 years old? Writer orthodoxy says it's because the fundamental rules for drama have never changed, since they are eternal, rooted in human nature. Those rules make the characters in a play or film or television show intelligible and interesting. And they are, to my eye anyway, rationalist rules: Characters are supposed to have desires and traits that are consistent from scene to scene, and these desires and traits cause them to act consistently. However wild a scene's emotions, the tick-tick-tick of its actions (she said that causing him to say that causing her to do that) is strictly logical. And maybe this is the only way that engaging drama can be made. But lately I am not so sure. I wonder if there aren't other ways to write characters—new rules that are a consequence of both new technology and a new ideas about human nature. In the near future when we have post-rational politics, economics and medicine, maybe we'll have post-rational dramaturgy too.

Already, today's long-arc television dramas are violating the classic rules in order to present a less intelligible world that happens to feel closer to real life than anything we've seen before. For an Exhibit A, I'd point to Mad Men, whose fifth season ends tonight. Consider a scene in one of its best episodes: As Don Draper strides toward his office, his secretary gives him a message: "Stephanie called from California, no last name, she says it's urgent." Don (and we) know this is news about his dying ex-wife, who may well be the only person he ever loved.

The Problem Isn’t That Hacks Tap Phones. It’s That They Target The Wrong People

The Problem Isn’t That Hacks Tap Phones. It’s That They Target The Wrong People | Making Movies | Scoop.it
Ted Obvious writes from London: Amazing, isn’t it, how so many people in Britain can’t see the forest behind a tree. A bush actually, not even a tree.

 

The thing about this so-called scandal surrounding phone tapping is that hacks have been targeting the wrong people and should gone after slimy politicians, crooked bankers and conniving big businessmen. Not forgetting bent cops and judges and big time criminals. That is the whole point of the free press, if such a thing as a free press still exists. It should use every means to uncover information about serious criminals. And if phone hacking is the only way to go about it, then journalists should tap into mobiles and find out what the creeps at high and low places are up to.

Good Theft vs. Bad Theft: Curation vs. Republishing Visualized

Good Theft vs. Bad Theft: Curation vs. Republishing Visualized | Making Movies | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Here's a great visualization of how different can be the traits of content re-use. In the left column you can see what would appear to be the ideal traits of a professional curator, while on the right you can immediately recognize the ones of scrapers, republishers, cheap aggregators and other "thin" publishers as Google would call them.

 

I think it can serve as an excellent reference, when in doubt about whether you are still doing the right thing or not, when it comes to re-using and republishing other people content.

 

The table is part of an excellent presentation entitled "Link Building by Imitation" and authored by link building expert Ross Hudgens.

Truthful. 9/10

Robin,
I posted that my "curious discovery" of the score (84) of that topic, as another example which Guillaume and his team can take as evalutation to improve about it.
It was just a comparison with my score "83".

Btw; your "92" is well deserved! :-)

Hey Giuseppe, is not well deserved at all... it's a mistake :-). Just post twice a day consistently, like you used to, and you can get it too!
