Charlie Brooker: There are two kinds of viewer in the world: right and wrong. Which are you? | Comment is free | The Guardian
As someone that has to be aware of what my screen ratio is for my own films, I share in Brooker's screen ratio nightmare screening many times. Whether it is watching a film cropped on a TV set, or watching a film at the cinema that the curtains weren't pulled apart, I've been there, done that, and doesn't tolerate that kind of projection cock-up anymore.

Before hearing this, I preferred the Fugees' take on this song, over the previous ,mellow versions Now I really appreciate Lieberman's approach to the lyrics.
Having been living within commutable distance to that gallery for nearly 15-odd years, I certainly recall going to that Yoko Ono exhibition... and staring at that apple for quite a while.

I love this quote from Deakin regarding this matter. ‘We feel a bit like the KLF when they burned a million quid - we want to end Airside with a bang.’

I appreciate anyone sharing their wisdom about trying to make a work of art into a piece of graphic design.

Hearing some of the new material shows that the Muppets still have the same kind of absurdity and warmth that some of their classic stuff possesses.

So noticed that there were some pages left in the old book left. So, I did what came naturally to me.... use it up, of course!
Whether you're a fan of John Krisfaluski's work or not, he always seem to have a pulse on current scene of American animated media. So his views certainly pack a poignant punch. I hopes he gets an educated impression with Britain's current animation output.

I am always fascinated by behind-the-scenes videos like this, as it just goes to show how much effort goes into it, including all the elements of visual effects and animation that this popular TV advert has displayed.

As Halloween is over, I can get my mind around that season which can be described as a big religious mash-up in my books. Therefore, here is the kind of track that people SHOULD consider as a social network campaign for the top spot around that time.
