This is not OK. This along with the Aereo case…
We already pay a lot for our internet. We don’t have a choice of providers. There’s one here. Our service is good, but it’s expensive. And it pisses me off knowing that that money is basically going to executives who don’t need it. I’m really getting sick of giving old dudes my money—so they can just have more money. Meanwhile people are out of work and in debt. God forbid we pay people who work hard a living wage.
There’s nothing quite as refreshing as editing for 15 hours and then realizing you didn’t check the sample rate on your audio track before you dumped it into FCP.
Refreshing. Like ice cold vodka in your sinuses. Way up there. Burning away all your shame.
It’s odd how a thing like a kiss can be completely the same and completely different. They aren’t acting. They aren’t other people. Lily is kissing James. James is kissing her real self. Perhaps he was all along.
He takes the ukelele from her and sets it on a table. He is acting a little bit. His mouth is flat, almost neutral, but his fingers twitch and his eyes tell her everything she needs to know to say yes when he asks if she’ll stay.
