Show all
From the Wiki article: "To help promote Mandatory Fun in social media circles, Yankovic produced eight music videos for the album; one was revealed each day starting on July 14, 2014, a day prior to the album's release. Yankovic commented that 'there is no more music television' as there was in the past, and that 'the Internet [...] is the new MTV' that operates continuously. He took the idea that promoting a new video for eight continuous days 'would make an impact because people would be talking about the album all week long.' [...] The music video aspect of Yankovic's songs had been a past part of his success, but for Mandatory Fun RCA Records opted not to fund production of any videos. Instead, Yankovic turned to various social media portals including Funny or Die and CollegeHumor which he had worked with in the past; these sites helped to cover the production costs to allow Yankovic to make the videos with Yankovic foregoing any ad revenue from the videos. Yankovic chose to... more... - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
More: "The first music video debuted on July 14, featuring the song "Tacky". Produced by Nerdist Industries, the one-shot video features Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, Jack Black, and Yankovic dressed in tacky clothes and dancing purposely poorly while lip-synching to the song reflecting on the song's lyrics about a person who brags on about his obnoxious... more... - Stephen Mack

The co-branding I find fascinating. - Stephen Mack
And using a CSN melody for "Mission Statement"? Stroke of genius, imo. - Brent Schaus
I haven't watched that one yet. :) Tonight! - Stephen Mack
The big downside to his strategy of peppering his eight videos across different sites is that it's tough to find them all. Yesterday I was at a friend's house and we were searching YouTube (via the TiVo app) trying to watch them all, and missed half of them. It'll also be interesting to see if some of the better videos don't get as many views because of which account or site was used to post/promote, or if some of the more marginal videos get more views because of the traffic of the originating site. - Stephen Mack
labels (not just RCA) refusing to bankroll promotional stuff is a pretty common occurrence. has been for ages and ages. they sure want a cut of any profits made, tho! #LittleRedHen - Big Joe Silence

Carl Sagan denied being an atheist. So what did he believe? [Part 1] - WaPo http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...
This is pretty close to my own thinking. I can't really explain why, but claiming 100% certainty when you have 99.95% +/- 0.05% certainty just seems problematic to me. - Victor Ganata
From a broader perspective, this seems to be discussing the fine line between denialism and scientific skepticism: "If you’re only skeptical, then no new ideas make it through to you. You never learn anything. You become a crotchety misanthrope convinced that nonsense is ruling the world. (There is, of course, much data to support you.)" - Victor Ganata
"Since major discoveries at the borderlines of science are rare, experiences will tend to confirm your grumpiness. But every now and then a new idea turns out to be on the mark, valid and wonderful. If you’re too resolutely and uncompromisingly skeptical, you’re going to miss (or resent) the transforming discoveries in science, and either way, you will be obstructing understanding and progress. Mere skepticism is not enough." - Victor Ganata
In science, you can't just say "No, that's not true" and expect people to take you seriously. You also have to explain what's actually happening. - Victor Ganata
Scientists and Belief - The poll was done 5 years ago, but still relevant: http://www.pewforum.org/2009... - Ken Morley
"An atheist is someone who has compelling evidence that there is no Judeo-Christian-Islamic God." That seems, implicitly, to be the common understanding of "atheist" in the US. Maybe without the "Islamic" part, as that religion is obviously made up. - Eivind from Android
Reminded me of this: " What gets called “philosophy of religion” in most philosophy departments and journals is really the philosophy of Abrahamic religion: basically, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Most of the questions addressed in those discussions are simply irrelevant to most of the world’s other religious traditions. Philosophers look at other religious traditions with the... more... - Eivind from Android

Star Trek’s John Cho breaks barriers as romantic lead: 'I would call this revolutionary' | Toronto Star
"John Cho in a romantic lead? It’s hard to remember the last time an Asian male played a romantic character in a television series. Unless you count the time George Takei as Sulu in Star Trek groped Uhura. But that’s because he was momentarily insane. Asians are among the most under-represented minority group on TV and Asian males in romantic leads are practically unheard of. But Cho now finds himself starring in a modern remake of Pygmalion and the colour-blind casting of himself as “Henry” with co-star Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) as Eliza Dooley in ABC’s Selfie for the fall TV season. “I would call this revolutionary. It’s certainly a personal revolution for me,” said the 42-year old actor who says he normally never gets offered such roles. Fans may best know the actor as the current Sulu in the rebooted Star Trek, or as stoner Harold Lee of Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
