I am no fan of the White House but this is quite awesome! No Photoshop, simply the White House lit up in pride colours! http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/white-house-lit-pride-colors-celebrate-sex-marriage/story?id=32063610
The White House was lit up in pride colors Friday night to celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down gay marriage bans across the country. “The White House was lit to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to progress and equality, here in America and around the world,” a White House...

No one should be above the law including RCMP officers. "Sentence is even longer than Dziekanski's mother, in tears in court, says she had hoped for"  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/robert-dziekanski-taser-death-kwesi-millington-imprisoned-for-30-months-for-perjury-1.3122941
Const. Kwesi Millington, the RCMP officer who fired a Taser the night Robert Dziekanski died at Vancouver International Airport, has been sentenced for perjury and colluding with his fellow officers at an inquiry into the death.

端午節快樂!Happy Dragon Boat Festival!
P.S. Good article from last year. I don't base my view on Google translate but OED and Webster's are good enough of a source for me. http://www.appledaily.com.tw/realtimenews/article/new/20140602/408828/

We rightfully should be shocked but knowing how the HKSAR gov seems to operate in recent years, nothing silly surprise me anymore.

Jim Carrey​ is quite funny and sincere in this. Worth a watch. No idea he has a studio and creating some art. I hope he can make more good and funny films.
The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Man on the Moon are three of his drama that I LOVE!

Jerry's full of testosterone as he steps into a '76 Lamborghini Countach with Jim Carrey, who's between a three-week cleanse and a five-day silent retreat. After coffee, it's off to Carrey's studio to study a portrait of a gorilla with a machine gun. Wow.

Same as Eddie Murphy. Another genius. Aside from Shrek his recent films haven't been up to much. He's still awesome though.

A few words about marriage and love. #LoveWins
"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people be- come something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.
The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth
Circuit is reversed.
It is so ordered."

I wonder what other issues the US will turn out to be ten years behind Canada on? 😹

I'm starting a countdown now. Ten years to marriage equality in Hong Kong 🌈

"He blocked out his schedule and sat down and watched maybe 30 hours of raw [Titanic] dailies to absorb the feeling of the film." http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/james-camerons-james-horner-tribute-804563
I was doing a lot of thinking about James when I heard the news and I checked online. The beginning and end of his filmography are films that he did, or would have done, with me. It’s a curious bookend. We both started out on the same film in 1980, and his last listed films are the Avatar sequels, which...

MX3D printing is interesting but I wonder have bridges built by them be rigorously tested to ensure they are structurally sound?  http://www.forbes.com/sites/amitchowdhry/2015/06/17/3d-printer-bridge/
Video3-D printers have been used to make artificial organs, houses, jewelry, car parts, guns and prosthetics. Now Amsterdam-based MX3D is going to use 3-D printers to build a metal bridge over a canal in Amsterdam. MX3D's robotic 3D printers are able to print cables of materials in any orientation. Essentially, those 3D [...]
