I made my way to the André Jacquemart Museum to have a look at the Turner exhibit there. The museum itself is also a work of art. This sweet sculpture is in the first room. Part of the really good movie, Gigi, was filmed in this museum. The lovely staircase. This is in the garden room. The bedroom of the wife of Jacquemart. She was an artist and had painted him. They spent their lives together collecting art that is seen in this museum, once their home. The most ...

I’ll start off by saying that I’m completely embarrassed by the fact that it took until now for me to finally read my buddy David Marx’s . I’m not quite sure why, I think it’s just one of those things that you keep meaning to do, and it slips through the cracks, and then you get to a point where you’re like, hey, I didn’t read this yet, what’s up with that? With that out of the way, I just blasted through it over a couple of days (thank god for vacation time) as I couldn’t put it down....

Halloween: Resurrection

As I mentioned after watching Halloween H20, I wanted to watch its direct sequel out of curiosity. The way they get out of Michael’s death in H20 is pretty ridiculous — and even more silly in that the producer forced the creators of H20 to develop this and put it in a contract while they were making it, as he wanted to make sure there was a way to continue with the series. The film itself is, well, whatever. It was fun seeing Katee Sackhoff in it, and strangely enough, the idea of using a ...

Facebook will temporarily stop all political ads after US polls close on Nov 3; MediaNama’s take

Facebook is prepping to deal with an unprecedented problem: a US president who may refuse to peacefully transfer power in case he loses. And to mitigate its own role in that situation, Facebook has announced that after US polls close on November 3, Facebook will temporarily stop displaying all political, electoral and social issue ads in the US. And to prevent a candidate (read: Trump) from dictating the narrative, Facebook will place notifications on top of the News Feed telling users the offic...
