I consider it a nursery rhyme and sing it to the boy. 18 of 18 - Steve C Team Marina
This gets stuck in my head all the time, and every time I say "chilling out," I have to add "maxing, relaxing all, cooling all, shooting some B-ball outside of the school." 18/18 - Julie Kane
This quiz doesn't even reference the long version of the opening sequence, the part where he's on the plane and arrives at the airport (between "you're moving [to your uncle's]" and "I whistled for a cab". Boooooooooo. - Andrew C (✔)

Was just discussing this with co-worker - I'm not allowed to go to Knotts Scary Farm (Halloweened out amusement park here in Oct) or similar Halloween scare the beejezus out of you places. My fight or flight instinct is set to fight so if something jumps out at me I punch it in the face then kick it in the balls then call its mother names.
The 16 year olds playing zombies for minimum wage probably deserve better than that. - Steve C Team Marina
I was nearly thrown out of Knotts Scary Farm years and years ago for inserting myself (and thus touching them) between a cast member and a little kid he was terrifying. - Soup in a TARDIS
Oh, Steve! I can just imagine this. Probably for the best that you don't go. XD - Spidra Webster
My friend got pulled off a hay ride accidentally once. Another time we were forced into the fun house after the hay ride and I crashed into 4 people when my flight instinct kicked in. I haven't gone back. - Heather

I saw The Book of Life with Gabrielle yesterday. I thought it was funny, charming and with so many impressively designed and animated scenes. -
I saw The Book of Life with Gabrielle yesterday. I thought it was funny, charming and with so many impressively designed and animated scenes.
From Rotten Tomatoes: "THE BOOK OF LIFE, a vibrant fantasy-adventure, tells the legend of Manolo, a conflicted hero and dreamer who sets off on an epic quest through magical, mythical and wondrous worlds in order to rescue his one true love and defend his village" - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
I love del Toro's visual aesthetic. - Stephen Mack
I want to see that movie. - Anika
The marketing has been really confusing from the commercials I can't understand what the gist of the story is. - Steve C Team Marina Found one!! Totally going to play with this. - Gabrielle
Steve C., it's an animated version of a folk tale involving the Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos, It reminded me a bit of A Nightmare Before Christmas in terms of tone and style, but very different visuals. - Stephen Mack
Gabrielle, omg, that looks so fantastic. - Stephen Mack
What age range do you think it's appropriate for? - Steve and 4 other people
I'd say 10+ to be honest. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
As I understand it, del Toro helped it get out & distributed, but it's the work of Jorge Gutierrez - Spidra Webster
That's a good point. But I felt like del Toro had a lot of influence. You get a sense of that in this interview: and also this one: - Stephen Mack

recipe? - Meg VMeg
Did you include the cilantro? - Katy S
I didn't think you would, but I wanted confirmation because the recipe does sound tasty. - Katy S
still delicious, even without the cilantro :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Perhaps more so? - Katy S
i think so! - holly #ravingfangirl
how do you find the time for the cook for an hour then cook 4 hours part? work from home or do it on weekend? - Steve C Team Marina

'Airbender' tax credit shows how far states will go to woo filmmakers - LA Times -
'Airbender' tax credit shows how far states will go to woo filmmakers - LA Times
"What happened next was not unlike the magic on screen. The visual effects were largely produced in San Francisco, but the film studio was given a tax credit as though they had been done in Pennsylvania. Citing "special circumstances," the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development granted Paramount a waiver that allowed the studio to claim a 25% tax credit on $29 million in visual effects work performed outside the state, according to a Nov. 12, 2008, letter to Paramount obtained by the Los Angeles Times in a public records request. The waiver saved the studio about $7 million. Or, put another way, it cost Pennsylvania that much in lost tax revenue." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
To woo any big business, really. The tax breaks system is like the credit based economy, imo. It snowballed and got all backwards. If all the tax breaks stopped, and everyone no matter the state had to do business on that same level, wouldn't we have fewer budget deficits? I seems likely. - Michael W. May
Yeah, this stuff is crazy. I really want to see film jobs stay in CA, but don't feel good about just getting into a race to the bottom with other states to see who can give away the most from the public coffers. To fucking corporations, too. - Spidra Webster

Lorde's 'Royals' banned in S.F.; K.C. station to play it every hour - LA Times
"In a move that is sure to tip the World Series scales in favor of the San Francisco Giants, two Bay Area radio stations have banned the song "Royals" until their beloved team is finished playing the Kansas City squad that has the same name as the 2013 hit by Lorde in the World Series. KFOG Radio tweeted last week: "No offense, Lorde, but for the duration of the World Series, KFOG Radio will be a 'Royals'-free zone."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Heh I was bugging some of the market workers by playing this song. - Rodfather
This bugs me - aren't the lyrics "we'll NEVER BE Royals"? Doesn't that seem perfectly correct for SF fans? - Ken Gidley

When Iggy Pop can’t live off his art, what chance do the rest have? - The Globe and Mail -
When Iggy Pop can’t live off his art, what chance do the rest have? - The Globe and Mail
"have a soft spot for Iggy Pop, partly because I interviewed him once and he was the soul of charm and erudition, like a particularly smart music professor who just happened to be wearing leather pants and eyeliner. On stage, he’s awe-inspiring, dancing like an electrified Twizzler. (I mean that as the highest possible compliment.) He still makes lean, ferocious music. At least he used to. As the head Stooge and godfather of punk revealed this week, he can’t actually live off music any more. Not that Iggy ever had the commercial clout of say, Justin Bieber – which is proof, if you needed, of a god-shaped hole in the universe – but he struggled along from label to label, alienating executives here, picking up new fans over there. But a new reality has tripped him up and it’s the same one shafting artists all across the world: Namely, that everyone wants to listen, and no one wants to pay. This week, Iggy gave a lecture for the British Broadcasting Corp. called Free Music in a... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
" If Iggy Pop can’t make it, what message does that send to all the baby Iggys out there? In a society where worth is judged by price, for better or worse, what are you saying to someone when you won’t pay for the thing he’s crafted? A few days before Iggy’s lecture, Australian novelist Richard Flanagan won the Booker Prize, the most prestigious in the literary world, for his Second... more... - Steve C Team Marina

50 Books Every Parent Should Read to Their Child – Flavorwire
"According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children in the UK do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents. So, from the peanut gallery of those who loved being read to (and still wouldn’t say no to a bedtime story): 50 books that every parent should read to their child. For the purposes of this list, we’re only considering books aimed primarily at children under 10 (according to the School Library Journal), which means you won’t find outstanding children’s chapter books like The Hobbit, A Wrinkle in Time, Patricia C. Wrede’s Enchanted Forest Chronicles, or C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia here, nor will you find mention of your favorite bespectacled wizard — the idea being that these are books kids are... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
I recently realized that The Little Prince is considered to be a children's book... I was astonished. - Lo
My kids were completely mystified by The Little Prince. - Stephen Mack
Great list, though. I'd quibble about which Roald Dahl book they picked, but beyond that not many complaints. - Stephen Mack
I'd add "Library Lion" by Michelle Knudsen. (Here's a version being read: - Stephen Mack
And no Wrinkle In Time? - Stephen Mack
I first read Library Lion as a grown-up when I was cataloguing a Spanish edition. I *adore* the drawings. The one that stands out is when the lion is outside, standing in the rain. - bentley
Quite a few of my favorites from childhood are in there! :D - Soup in a TARDIS
I help with 'Reading Partners', and go to a Sunnyvale elementary school and read with 2nd and 3rd graders twice a week for 45 minutes. Last year my 2 girls increased their reading levels dramatically and it is very rewarding. I think I have read most of those books to them over the year. - sam williams

Black Keys drummer: U2 release 'devalued their music' -
"Carney also defended the Keys' choice not to put their last two albums on Spotify. Artists aren't being fairly compensated, he said. (Cracker's David Lowery has made the same point about Pandora.) "My whole thing about music is: If somebody's making money then the artist should be getting a fair cut of it," Carney said. Presumably referring to Spotify co-founder Sean Parker, he added, "The owner of Spotify is worth something like 3 billion dollars ... he's richer than Paul McCartney and he's 30 and he's never written a song."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

The Lakers might be the worst team in the NBA* - -
"Mid-range jumpers are the least efficient shot in basketball. Corner threes are among the most efficient. Over two games, the Lakers have taken 95 mid-range jumpers and eight threes ... none of which were in the corners. That's just incredible." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Here's the thing: we know L.A.'s defense is going to be pitiful. The backcourt as presently constructed is a sieve, Boozer is an active detriment on that end and there's basically no one to play small forward, which is actually a critical defensive position. Jordan Hill is a good shot blocker and Lin will get steals. But add in Scott's horrific defensive numbers from his three seasons... more... - Andrew C (✔)
Ahh crap forgot Boozer is on Lakers now. Oh well I'll catch them next year then. Can't stand to see him on any court. - Steve C Team Marina

The discharge of Biden, a 44-year-old lawyer and managing partner at an investment firm, was first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. He confirmed the report in a statement to CNN. "It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy's decision.

"Nigeria's presidency says it has agreed a ceasefire with militants Boko Haram which would see the return of 219 kidnapped girls. Air Marshal Alex Badeh, chief of defence staff, said: "A ceasefire agreement has been concluded between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal Jihad (Boko Haram). "I have accordingly directed the service chiefs to ensure immediate compliance with this development in the field." The president's principal secretary Hassan Tukur told the AFP news agency that an agreement to end hostilities had been reached after talks with the Islamist group. He said: "Boko Haram issued the ceasefire as a result of the discussions we have been having with them. "That have agreed to release the Chibok girls."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Halil: That's true here as well. Dunno if it's the same meaning. Take, for example, "special education": - Walt Crawford

Walt, yes has the same meaning, although it mainly depends on the tone/manner/context in which it's said you'd rarely call someone you like special. - Halil
