Modern Family episode on Mac OS X

tcr! · Feb 17, 2015 at 6:44 pm

Modern Family episode takes place entirely on OS X desktop

Modern Family episode takes place entirely on OS X desktop

According to reports, the plot of the February 25 episode will revolve around main character Claire (played by Julie Bowen) trying to track down her daughter after a fight; as such, viewers will see the episode unfold from her laptop’s primary screen while e-mails, Facetime calls, and texts pop up (along with visual gags like web browser usage to tell jokes).

Producers confirmed they built a fake OS X Yosemite environment, upon which they overlaid footage shot exclusively on iPhone 6s, “new iPads,” and Macbook Pros; supposedly, the latest OS X was chosen so that the episode could take advantage of its “Continuity” feature. While footage was shot on actual iDevices, camera crews had to hold phones on actors’ behalf and then film simultaneous scenes in disparate locations to mimic the feel of people talking to each other through video chat.

This is totally cool. We’ve watched Modern Family since episode 1.

Such Great Heights by The Postal Service

tcr! · Feb 17, 2015 at 2:32 pm

Peeps, here’s your video for today…

… “everything looks perfect from far away”

I am thinking it’s a sign
That the freckles in our eyes
Are mirror images
And when we kiss they’re perfectly aligned

And I have to speculate
That God Himself did make
Us into corresponding shapes
Like puzzle pieces from the clay

And true it may seem like a stretch
But it’s thoughts like this that catch
My troubled head when you’re away
And when I am missing you to death

And when you are out there on the road
For several weeks of shows
And when you scan the radio
I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great heights
“Come down now” they’ll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
“Come down now” but we’ll stay

I tried my best to leave
This all on your machine
But the persistent beat
It sounded thin upon the sending

And that frankly will not fly
You’ll hear the shrillest highs
And lowest lows with the windows down
And this is guiding you home

They will see us waving from such great heights
“Come down now” they’ll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
“Come down now” but we’ll stay

Always like his phrasing and hooks.

The video reminds me of someone’s previous occupation.

Google is dying

tcr! · Feb 17, 2015 at 1:03 pm

Google and blogs: “Shit.” – Marco.org

Everyone’s spending increasingly more consumption time dicking around in apps and snacking on bite-sized social content instead of browsing websites and searching Google.

Publishers are relying more on social traffic not because Google’s squeezing them out, but because that’s where everyone went. The dominance of mobile usage, social networks, and YouTube, plus attention-competition from apps, are the real problems for web publishers and blog writers.

The social and app revolutions haven’t been purely additive — much of the time people spend on those now has come at the expense of search, RSS, and bookmarks.

You’ll get no arguments from me. I tend to skim the social medias more than Googling these days. All the peeps are there and I’m much more interested in what they’re doing and reading than rummaging around with what Google has to offer. A peep’s opinion that I trust has much more weight than a search algorithm.

I’m still a big proponent of RSS, I’m in my RSS reader at least twice a day. There’s a whole lot of bullshit on the web and I prefer sticking with the sites that make it easy for me to get and read their content. And I only subscribe to blogs and sites that I trust as well.

Wikipedia is another frequent stop. I’d rather start my research there with measure of quality than starting with a blank page of Google unless I’m looking for very specific technical items. Then I always seem to end up on Stack Overflow anyways.

Maybe that’s the whole thing. Maybe it all comes down to trust.

Sign In to the iTunes Store to use iTunes Radio and iTunes

I get this at least 3 out of 4 times when trying to use iTunes Radio. Even worse is that it never accepts my password — I just click the cancel button and go about my business.

Apparently I’m not the only one.

Talk about loosing faith in Apple — this is my Apple ID (your user name for everything you do with Apple) we’re talking about here.

The “Reset Warnings” button has been clicked so we’ll see what happens.

My whole life 2day is sort of about honoring the past without living n it, i accept myself 2day, 4 most part & aint living with my head n past or future pretty good bv when u & i’s relationship n the past popped n2 my present moment, thats how i deal with past now, not sweat & cipher & wring my hands, i did that 2 point of redundancy & with another person we both know, she say, ‘yeah, we’re fukn good & what u can do is NEVER BRING IT UP AGAIN!!!’ I say, ‘oh’ & so thats how its been. Alot of others actf like I was outta my mind-my fukn insanity was big joyride & if table turned i dont believe thats how i would have perceived it. Jimmy crops n2 my present every now & again cause he did me alot of good & i self-righteously shit on him when he was down.

there were many occasions when he needed a real friend & despite his skills & intuition & knowing i had turned n2 a self-righteous, moralizing reactive prick-he turned 2 me & got his fingers bit by the wounded animal he knew i was. I could be everything but a friend..Just learning bout it now really. I came 2 terms with Jim & I might bump n2 eachother again & if we dont well-it was just best 2 leave it alone… but KNOW i was wrong with him & about him & gave him some really scathing, seething sermons when that bout the last thing he needed. With some others i can say i was big fukhead but when chips were really down i came thru…not so with jimmy-when he really needed me…i failed him everytime :-( but @ l do know it & accept it & can move 4ward.

sbj on a pogo stick juggling dildo! come off the cross, we could use the wood. sgc never failed me! i consider him to be one of my best friends. we will all run into each other again but we won’t be the same person. probably a good thing. i am in an amazing place lately; completely bulletproof. i wish nothing but the best for almost everyone. i am all about forgiveness and transcendence. it’s a kind of spiritual/emotional socializm.

Autism not linked to vaccinations

tcr! · Feb 16, 2015 at 9:03 pm

The Politics of Measles - The New Yorker

The Politics of Measles - The New Yorker

…An infamous 1998 study in The Lancet, which claimed that the rising incidence of autism was linked to vaccinations, was particularly influential with some of those parents—even though the data were found to be falsified and the author’s medical license was revoked

[…]

…Asked about immunization on CNN last week, Senator Rand Paul, a potential Republican candidate for President—and a doctor—painted a pointlessly terrifying scenario: “I’ve heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.” No doubt, he has heard such stories, but the evidence does not support them

I cherry picked what I thought most important.

as you know, i don’t have kids. for what it’s worth, i always get any vaccination that comes down the pike. i have a little more faith in american/western medicine than they deserve but i’ve never had any relief from acupuncture or other things people swear by.
i could go off on at least 3 different rants here but i’ll spare you.

oh fer fucks sakes!
i am not being efficient with my words.
i think that the right wing jesus fever types are dangerous. i am sometimes at a loss for evidence. this is an excellent example.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 17, 2015 at 9:18 am

Prime beef example. I heard soOo much hoopla about vaccines causing autism but never a peep about bullshit data until now. It’s sad really. The kids suffer and die because of their parent’s stubbornness and/or ignorance.

It was always the stories about the Christian Scientists when I was a kid. Refusing medical attention because it would be Dog’s will if you lived or died. We just thought they were mental.

Now “data” is being pulled out of someone’s ass to refute medical science. That’s right people, it’s MOFO SCIENCE. When every parent becomes medical professional I’ll cut them some slack

tcr! tcr! · Feb 18, 2015 at 10:27 pm

This topic is the same as global warming. It’s all hearsay even though science has proven otherwise. It’s undeniably disgusting.

I read once that the reason children lie, etc. is because their physical brains have not developed enough to comprehend their actions. They are literally and technically incapable of absorbing what their parents are trying to teach them is wrong.

It’s only after they’ve physically grown a certain amount that they’re able to comprehend.

I wholeheartedly believe that some parts of some adult brains are still in that toddler state — completely unable to perform simple and logical functions.

I don’t know what other explanation for such ignorance could be.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 18, 2015 at 10:28 pm

I feel that I’ve come across as smug and enlighten. I feel that’s okay.

t: as spokesman for the smug, we rarely include you in our numbers. enlightenment is another story. i’ve seen you at the meetings.
