I haven’t paid any attention to this at all, so I defer to the experts:
That Amazon Studios Screenplay Contest: Heavenly Or Hellish? Scribes Weigh In…
Go on, sucker. Jump on that egress.
Act in haste, burn in rights Hell.
And don’t expect the WGA to come rescue your ass, either.
There’s a reason all these companies are after virgin meat.
Because they can rob you blind.

OSCAR: Noomi Rapace Q&A
On her role as Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium Trilogy movies:
DEADLINE: Are you the kind of actor who can leave the set and forget about it?
RAPACE: No, never. That’s quite difficult for me. She stayed in me like non–stop for the whole time. The last scene was quite strange. All the producers came in with champagne as they wanted to celebrate, and I had to go to the bathroom because I started to throw up.
Beautiful. The kind of reaction Lisbeth herself would have had.
UPDATE: I should have waited for word from some experts. They say it is fake. I thought it was just crap hardware that made the difference.
This was just uploaded onto YouTube a few hours ago. It will make you love your iOS device all the more.
The slowness of that is just painful to witness.
This video shows NookColor handling PDFs, as a follow-up to my post: Google Books PDF Smackdown: NookColor Vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab Vs. iPad
Yeah, that’s how I experienced regular — non-Google Books — PDFs that people had downloaded onto the NookColor. Speedy little bugger with the PDFs.
Some people say the NookColor will be hacked and its ROM overwritten from another Android tablet. If so, that would dispose of its pretty UI and replace it with generic Android UI, more or less (the NookColor lacks the standard Android hardware buttons). If that happens, it’d be a tablet to buy. It could then be a Sony Reader, a Kobo Reader, a Kindle, as well as a Nook all via Android apps. Plus, the regular Adobe Reader for Android could be installed — which, according to Comments on the other post, can do Google Books PDFs.
Someone asked for a list of the books in the now-canceled (damn you to hell) AMC-TV series, Rubicon.
That’s a post I’ll get to sometime in the future.
I thought having access to over 25,000 (!!!) HDTV screensnaps from Rubicon would make this process easier than using the non-HDTV screensnaps I create on my own.
Sad to say, this is not so.
