Re: Harold Ramis, 1944–2014 | Balder and Dash | Roger Ebert - http://www.rogerebert.com/admin...
"You nailed it Patricia. Took the words right out of my mouth. Nicely done. I still watch Groundhog day from time to time just because it reminds me to approach each day differently." - paisano

Re: Before Midnight Movie Review & Film Summary (2013) | Roger Ebert - http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews...
"I really hated this installment after loving the first one and liking the follow up. Some argue that the gritty realism was on purpose but I didn't like it at all. Reminded me too much of couples who fight all the time and make you feel uncomfortable. The writer/director completed took a hatchet to what was a beautiful work of art. He turned a Mona Lisa into a Jackson Pollack after a brief Picasso period." - paisano

Re: If We Picked the Winners 2014: Best Adapted Screenplay | Festivals & Awards | Roger Ebert - http://www.rogerebert.com/festiva...
"I loved Before Sunrise...and thought Before Sunset was OK but disappointing...but Before Midnight was an excruciating and horrible experience that I barely managed to finish and only out of respect for the first two movies. It was like being with that couple you know will divorce and you just want to hide because it's so embarrassing to be around them. Please don't give me the "That's the point of the movie and that's why it's so brilliant" defense. I just hated it." - paisano

"One might say it was just a horrible joke by someone who might have been drunk but if you look at the tweets she did before this awful one then you'll see it's more or else her style. The gap between them shatters the "one-too-many" excuse (12 hours apart). http://i.imgur.com/0Y1wb7C.png" - paisano

Re: How much does it cost to develop an app? The true price of starting from scratch - http://thenextweb.com/dd...
"You're right on the money E2Logy. I can vouch for that. The $10 to $25K range is most common. Enterprise projects always ratchet much higher as do large scale high concept apps for startups with big dreams. No one discussed going overseas like EverNote and others did at first. You can get hourly rates under $25/hour but it's true you get what you pay for." - paisano

Re: living with ed – part 1 - http://brennasblog.com/living-...
"What an honest and moving piece. Thanks for sharing this Brenna. I know you are not alone in this. Only when we share our experiences can others come forward and feel safe to do likewise. I'm a fellow Italian so I understand the plight involving food. We use food to celebrate everything! I've shared my food problem (eating disorder?) elsehwere as I finally changed how I ate and became more active to lose over 70 pounds in less than a year. Mostly doing the 4 Hour Body which is a lifestyle change more than a fad diet. It's all scientific based so I understood it...and food for the first time. Still, you're dealing with something different. Please keep us informed and keep the faith! I've read/heard many great stories of people overcoming ED. You can too. We can help too for support. :)" - paisano

"it would have been even more interesting if it was Allen Thicke as Rush said incorrectly...it was his son Robin Thicke for the record who is in court battle with Marvin Gaye's family over ripping off Marvin's "Got to Give it Up" with his Blurred Lines summer smash. Allen Thicke only ripped himself off by writing songs like the themes for The Facts of Life and Different Strokes etc." - paisano

Re: App.net, the project to build a better social network, turns one - http://thenextweb.com/insider...
"I've been a paid member for most of that first year and I can say that I've used it only a few times. The no ads gimmick was very clever but it really isn't worth it in my book. I don't ever notice it on twitter and there is so much more information in that stream than the ghost town vibe of app.net. It's supposed to be that way...an exclusive club for paying members thus keeping out the commoners. Whatever. I'll take the noisy, spammy but crowded social networks. I will keep an eye on this though and see what happens. I'm concerned about the direction twitter is headed so app.net could benefit from that scenario if twitter continues to go the facebook route with sponsors." - paisano

"Supervised visit? Where? I don't know how this person will be able to live with this horror. If they don't carry a weapon to "supervise" these visits then they should. They are supposed to protect the children! This should not happen. Also, why wasn't he scanned for a weapon? Budget excuse is not acceptable! If you can't scan then you can't allow a visit! Sorry I am angry about this. I know it's all because of the psychotic killer but we could have protected that child. We (our system) failed him tragically. Someday it could be your child!" - paisano

Re: dot coma – Are Domain Names Even Relevant Now? - http://www.convinceandconvert.com/digital...
"Love the heated debates on here. Branding is a serious and passionate matter. Yes, everyone agrees having the dot com domain is ideal but it's almost impossible these days to get it unless you come up with a totally jacked up new word or have deep pockets to pay domain squatters a small ransom. That's why I like the hot trend of using alternative TLD like .me, .co and others. Some day the extensions won't matter at all." - paisano

Re: Andy Baio (@waxpancake) on death of Upcoming (he founded it 10 | LAUNCH - http://launch.co/story...
"Yahoo has done this too many time (almost as often as Google) Remember how they destroyed Delicous? The once former king of bookmarks favorites and links. They let it die on the vine for years. I wrote some scathing pieces about this fiasco years ago while it was happening for former yahoo employee Sarah Lacy for her blog. Search for once delicious now stale. They eventually sold it to the former founders of YouTube As for upcoming yahoo let that languish and die too It was the plancast of its day and should have become eventbright But they Did not take advantage of another great acquisition They could have been the destination for links and events They totally wet the bed there I also think they screwed up with Flickr Though it still has a big userbase it is not Because of anything yahoo has done with flickr It should have gone mobile and become Instagram Or they should have acquired them and merged with flickr" - paisano

Re: Seven Gripes About the Differences Between The Silver Linings Playbook Book and Movie - http://tastelikecrazy.com/2013...
"Thanks for the awesome comparison. I only watched the movie and I loved it but I can see why you feel the way you do. I still plan to read the book eventually. I don't have the same rule to read the book first, on the contrary, because I love movies so much I prefer to watch the bastardization first and then read the almost always superior incarnation of the story. To me it's like comparing apples to oranges though so it's not fair to do this anyway. Movies based on books should always say "influenced or inspired by such and such book". It is fascinating how much a story changes from the page to the screen. I can't remember too many times when it's better in film. Can you name some? Of hand I would say "Somewhere in Time" was superior to the book named "Bid Time Return" originally but renamed over the years to match the famous movie by Richard Matheson (who wrote the screenplay too). Oddly enough, I can say the same thing about Matheson's other book turned to film "What Dreams May..." - paisano
