this will be something that gets lost to new viewers, this radio silence i think is as important to the narrative as the actual film. i mean, all of us on the tag are literally losing sleep over wanting to hear any news. after this point all new viewers are going to get a less immersive narrative and that makes me kinda sad.

Reminds me of how we all freaked out when Jane didn’t post anything after leaving Rochester’s house and the hilarity of Rochester drunk posting at 1 am. People watching it now will miss out on that.

For many, the scenes of conflict from Ferguson, Missouri this week were a reminder of an era of racial conflict many Americans had hoped was far behind them — particularly in the era of the first black president.
A peaceful night of demonstrations on Thursday was preceded by four nights of unrest in which the people of Ferguson attempted to protest the slaying of an unarmed 18-year-old black teenager, Michael Brown, and were met by battle-clad local police armed with military equipment.
The police had sniper rifles pointed at peaceful protesters, used tear gas and rubber bullets, detained journalists and dismantled a filming crew’s camera equipment. The St. Louis suburb had become a war zone.

7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

Click here to find out why these questions help you.

This is so important!

I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

Don’t be me.

I agree with all of these except the last one. Too negative. But the others? I’ve asked in interviews.

Another question to ask: “I saw on your website that…” “I read in a news article that…” You get the gist. Good for letting the interviewer know you’ve done your research.

When I was a kid back in 1978 I got invited to take photos at the Grease party on Paramount Studios back lot. Everyone was there including John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, of course. I had no idea about the magnitude of this film and how it would be revered decades later. At the time, Travolta lived in my building at 100 S Dohney, but I never saw him.  I think that he was in the Penthouse and I was in apartment # 716. The building is still there and I drive by it all the time and  reminisce of those magical years.
