I finally saw Looper, and while I actually enjoyed the acting and direction and drama, the time travel premise is about as well thought through as Back to the Future's.

There were definitely a lot problems with it. The time travel was paradoxical and illogical, and I thought the future self's "the past is fuzzy" explanation was a complete cop-out. And much of the writing was just... illogical. But I enjoyed it anyway, and I think it was a good movie to get more mainstream people who think they don't like scifi to open up to scifi... and hopefully delve deeper into the genre and find better stuff.

not only does this article promote my SXSW panel, it qutes panelists Alyssa Rosenberg and Steve Benen and even quotes a Vermonter, Garrett Graff!
The festival has become a destination for politicos despite its history of attracting techie and creative types.

BTV film/video kids: I need a hand shooting interviews & b-roll on Tuesday 8/2 in Franklin, VT. It's for some ACLU of Vermont videos I'm helping to produce. No pay, but lunch and coffee is provided and it promises to be fun, plus the cause is just. Shooting with an AF100 and some sweet lenses. Email if available/interested.

yup.
Josh Levy originally shared:
 
This pretty much sums up the "why Netflix is still good" argument.
Imgur is used to share photos with social networks and online communities, and has the funniest pictures from all over the Internet.

This Google Plus share pretty much sums um why sharing on Google Pus is 480% more lame than sharing on Google Reader used to be. I see a tiny thumbnail and then some words that were scraped from a META tag about the image hosting service. In order to see what Joshua and Bill were actually talking about I have to click and wait and go offsite where I see lots of annoying sidebar ads.

Is it nerdy that I can tell when they switched to flash? Is it even more nerdy that I noticed they 'defingered' him towards the end of the series?

Story
Tagline
Filmmaker, writer & media educator. Director of Media Services at VCAM in Burlington, Vermont.
Introduction
I'm a filmmaker, writer and media educator living in the south end of Burlington, Vermont.

It's worth noting that I am not, as Google might make you believe, the ESPN sports writer, Bill Simmons. Mr. Simmons is exactly my age (born in the same month) and because his fans and detractors sometimes write about him on the web and misuse their apostrophes (e.g. "Did you see Bill Simmon's column today?"), his name precedes mine in a Google search for "Bill Simmon." He is my nemesis and he must be stopped.
