"You can't take the sky from me..." The First Instagram From Space Is Of An Astronaut In A Firefly T-Shirt http://io9.com/the-first-instagram-from-space-is-of-an-astronaut-in-a-1563764801/
Last week, NASA astronaut Steve Swanson sent the first Instagram from space. It was a selfie, naturally, taken before the ISS cupola. But what caught our eye wasn't Swanson's handsome mug or the view of Earth. It was Swanson's shirt, which features a familiar spacecraft and the words: "Shipping & Logistics: Everything's Shiny."

Die Another Day Homages (28th March 2010)
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the EON Productions series, homages were paid to all the 19 James Bond adventures that went before. In the most blatant nod to fans, Q mentions in his laboratory as he hands Bond his new watch: "This is your twentieth, I believe," referencing that this was the twentieth film.

+Richard Brody lists the best #documentaries of all time, in anticipation of Sight & Sound magazine’s forthcoming poll. #movies  
The history of documentary filmmaking isn’t the fact of capturing events on the wing but the idea of doing so.

This otherwise good article is absolutely bloody annoying as it has the 'share' icons attached to the left margin half way down covering a 1/3rd of the real estate, which has no space, thus covering the text & pictures as I scroll.

Stupid stuff screenwriter's say "We didn't want the movie to be about race so only white people are in it". o.0
 
http://www.themarysue.com/noah-screenwriter-race/

"Why were there no non-whites in the cast?"

"Well, we didn't want to make race an issue, so we just made everyone regular-style."

"Regular-style?  You mean white?"

"Y'know, just plain people. Regular, everyman people. We decided we didn't need anyone sassy, or spicy, or exotic.  We just went with regular."

"...White isn't a default person style. You can cast people from different races in any kind of role."

"Well, like I said, we didn't want to make a Bennetton ad, we just wanted regular folks, everymen. I mean, it was a sort of mythic story, it needed a grounding in reality."

"So, 'reality' means 'white.'"

"Well, we didn't want race to be a thing."

I noted the overwhelming whiteness at the time. They did cast one Jewish actor, as Ham, which has a certain irony to it.

From James Joyce to Maurice Sendak, by way of weep-worthy jelly and gifted chickens. Food and literature have a long and arduous relation

* sniff sniff * Actually my normal symptoms are mostly absent (sniffing, itchy irritated eyes) but I do a mild blocked nose and sinusitis but almost worse is that I have almost a sore throat that I associate with swollen buccal (mouth) tissues that I sometimes get, and slightly tingly mouth INSIDE :( :( :(
 
Suffering from #hayfever ? The #pollen count is high today.

The #sunny weather means the #UV index is moderate at around lunchtime today.

Keep up to date with the pollen count and the UV index via our forecast pages http://bit.ly/1gFEJ84

In 1919 we commissioned a photographer to travel France and Belgium. Here are 10 of her stunning photos – #WW1 #WW1Centenary http://ow.ly/vNwKk
In 1919, the Women’s Work Committee of the Imperial War Museum commissioned professional portrait photographer Olive Edis to photograph women’s war work in France and Belgium. As a result of a month long tour she produced 171 prints. Her skill as a portraitist is evident in the intimate yet dignified studies of women working and living in what had very recently been the main theatre of war. Here are just 10 of the photographs she produced for IWM...
