Jon Stewart was an icon, and is sorely missed. He was at his best when taking the news media to task, and making stupid look stupider.
At the moment, my favorite, can't-miss show is Last Week Tonight. It's THE best thing on television. Although not technically a talk show, as there aren't guests in the typical fashion.
Holy crap. As much as I admire some of Kubrick's work, I had no idea....
And I don't give a ---- what anybody else thinks: This guy's title is ARTIST.
Thanks so much for posting this.
I might get shouted down by trolls, but I think the best moments in the Marvel comic book movies are the ... quiet moments ... where the characters reveal a glimpse of humanity. It's an art, revealing character at the same time the world/universe/multiverse is in the process of being destroyed. Doesn't always work. But my recent favorite was in the new Captain America film. The Winter Soldier in the back seat of a VW bug, asking Falcon, "Can you move your seat up?" That's something we can all relate to.
~"A premise is not a movie." So. Very. True.
I recently found this book, and it has helped me immensely. Sounds like an infomercial, but I'm sincere. Steve Pressman's "The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles".
At least it's reliable. In the sense that EVERY time I go to the Lumetri scopes panel, right-click and choose Vectorscope HLS or Vectorscope YUV or any of the Presets .... BOOM.
"Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015.0 has stopped working." Yadda yadda yadda. Displays Debug/Continue buttons on my system, because I have some development tools on there too.
Just for the sheer hell of it, I picked Debug, and it launched Visual Studio 2013. Here's what I got out of that:
Unhandled exception at 0x000000001CB69D87 (TransmitScopes.prm) in Adobe Premiere Pro.exe: 0xC000001D: Illegal Instruction.
Problem with da scopes, ay?
Hey Adobe. I absolutely love your products when they work. I'm sure you'll resolve these bugs (ahem, sorry, "issues") soon and I look forward to that in the days and weeks ahead.
My system's a bit dated, but still strong enough to edit small and mid-size stuff on:
Windows 8.1 Pro
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor
12Gb RAM (I wasn't running any other apps, just Premiere Pro CC 2015)
nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti
