Well, ideally it would be a multitude of human zombie bots controlled by my personal minions at the behest of my client’s fears and desires. Of course, if I were that level of omnipotence, I would be vying for the role of Planet Emperor. In that case why would I even be wasting my precious time running an online SEO/SEM agency? I would probably be tearing up the skies in my private jumbo jet being served narcotics and food from the hands of my sky vixens.
Realistically and all snarkiness aside: news feed is by far the most valuable real estate you can get on Facebook
Steven Spielberg: We must act on what was learned from the Holocaust
Oscar-winning film director, writer and producer Steven Spielberg stressed on Monday the importance of gathering testimony to horrors such as the Holocaust in order to create awareness and preventative measures for the future.
“Mass graves don’t have to open up before we act,” Spielberg said in the keynotes address of a special UN General Assembly session marking the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. “It is a great accomplishment of our species that the testimonies [of survivors] can be heard in the high chambers of society.”
The director of the epic Holocaust-era film Schindler’s List said the memory of the Holocaust remained with us today and the victims of past genocide had now become “teachers to victims of recent genocide.”
Ever since the Hong Kong action-movie boom of the 1980s, the film industries of East Asia have arguably been better at making old-fashioned, hard-boiled crime thrillers than Hollywood has. Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning “The Departed,” after all, was a remake of the 2002 Hong Kong thriller “Infernal Affairs” (albeit an excellent remake with its own spirit and considerable subtlety). While Asian pop cinema remains just off the radar screen of mainstream American culture, it’s a whole lot easier to find than it used to be. This week, Korean writer-director Park Hoon-jung’s byzantine, slick and bloody mob drama “New World” opens theatrically in numerous North American cities, just a few weeks after its smash-hit premiere in Korea.
Part of this new accessibility is simply about the speed of cultural transmission; no doubt pirated copies of “New World” are already available on the Internet, or on the sidewalks of Asian immigrant neighborhoods.… Read the rest
Karl Rove Melts Down on National Television November 5th, 2012
Maddow then played a clip of Karl Rove contesting Fox News’ call that Obama won the state of Ohio, and therefore the presidency on Tuesday night. She then launched into a rant which can only be described as epic for comprehensively denouncing every conspiracy theory that cropped up during the 2012 election cycle. She said:
“Ohio really did go to President Obama last night, he really did win. He really was born in Hawaii, and he really is, legitimately, president of the United States again. And The Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy.
“I am doing everything I can to help Mitt Romney be the NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE USA!!!!!! I made this commercial for him and am hoping that he will approve it. But so far his campaign has not gotten back to me. If enough people see this video, maybe he will return my calls!”
Marie Antoinette baptised Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna (or Maria Antonia Josephina Johanna); 2 November 1755 – 16 October 1793), born an archduchess of Austria, was Dauphine of France from 1770 to 1774 and Queen of France and Navarre from 1774 to 1792. She was the fifteenth and penultimate child of Holy Roman Emperor Francis I and Empress Maria Theresa.
In April 1770, on the day of her marriage to Louis-Auguste, Dauphin of France, she became Dauphine of France.… Read the rest
I voted this morning in the most important presidential race in my lifetime.
I haven’t been ranting on this blog about the complex feelings that I have been having over the last 2 months, as the presidential race turning into a pageant of slime and cynicism – but it has been affecting me on a deep emotional level that I would have never thought possible. … Read the rest
I have been a Slashdot fan for a while now, and these guys are just a STITCH. Sometimes they get going on a riff and the results are laugh out loud funny.
I am posting this ‘repost’ to illustrate, the link at the bottom will take you to the original material.
Posted by ScuttleMonkey on Friday June 27, @03:12PM from the new-swimming-holes dept. Earth Science phobos13013 writes “Recently released evidence is showing the North Pole ice is melting at the highest rate ever recorded. As a result, the Pole may be completely ice-free at the surface and composed of nothing but open water by September. As reported in September of last year, the Northwest Passage was ice-free for the first time known to man. The implications of this, as well as the causes, are still being debated.… Read the rest
It’s official. ‘Android’ will be Google’s face in the wireless world. At least I will be able to save on calls to 411.
“At the core, Google is betting that easier consumer access to Internet services from their mobile phones will lead consumers to use its services more—which has been the case with Web access on the personal computer. The open model echoes Google’s announcement last week of OpenSocial technical specifications to be used by social networking sites and software developers creating applications for them.” Wall Street Journal
“Among the handset makers that signed on to Google’s initiative were Taiwan’s HTC Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. and Motorola Inc. Operator partners include Deutsche Telekom AG’s T-Mobile, Sprint Nextel Corp., and Japan’s NTT DoCoMo Inc.”
