‘Birds of Prey’ Producer Sue Kroll on Me Too, Reshoots, and Sequel Possibilities [Interview]

Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie. “There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was...

The 10 Scariest Movie Scenes of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Fear is a complex emotion, and filmmakers use a variety of tricks to induce it. There are many ways to scare audiences, from bogeymen jumping out while violins screech to slow, gut-churning dolly shots leading up to horrific visuals. Fear can be a creeping sense of dread, a shock to the heart, or a terrifying realization. Ranking the scariest movie scenes of the decade meant paying homage to the myriad ways fear presents itself, whether ...

It’s Finally (Sort Of) Here!: A Duty of Technological Competence for Canadian Lawyers

For years, Slaw commentators (including myself) have called for Canadian law societies to adopt a duty of technological competence for lawyers. On October 19, 2019, a major development occurred, which has largely gone unnoticed. The Federation of Law Societies of Canada amended its to add the following commentary to the competence rule (r. 3.1-2): [4A] To maintain the required level of competence, a lawyer should develop an understanding of, and ability to use, technology relevant to the natur...

How we raised $10,000+ for a charity (actual metrics)

What happens when you try to raise money for a cause you care about? Recently, my wife and I held a fundraiser in NYC. We both come from families of immigrants and we wanted to raise money for families being separated at the border. What we’ve seen has made us feel helpless, outraged, and sad. But we also know that we’re in the enviable position of being able to do something about it. This was the first time we’ve ever raised money for a fundraiser together and I want to share what we learned (...

Comment on blue sky bran muffins by Cass

I’ve been making these muffins twice a month for years. My modifications: 1) One bowl. After mixing wet ingredients with whisk, put bran in next (don’t mix yet), then flour and leavening. Use spoon to mix the dry ingredients that are sitting on top of the wet ingredients, then use whisk to mix all together. 2) Due to history of vanilla shortage, I just use Penzey’s lemon or orange peel. 3) Fruit – nothing juicy! I like berries of any kind. With raspberries, I don’t bother cutting them up. No nee...

Kamala’s Fake Lover: Jacob Wohl Told Me It Was for a Spike TV Show

Inept conservative operatives Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman held another bizarre press conference in Burkman’s driveway on Wednesday, this time to smear Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) with obviously fake allegations of an extramarital affair. And like past efforts to manufacture sexual claims against Trump foes—from Robert Mueller, to Pete Buttigieg, to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)—the Harris charade fell apart quickly. The pair’s bogus accuser—26-year-old Sean Newaldass—told The Daily Beast on Friday ...

New York Times Book Review

Well, The New York Times just reviewed my book.   10 years ago, when my first edition was coming out, I asked my friend at the Times how to get my book reviewed. He came back and said, “It’s not gonna happen.” I laughed. The unspoken message was clear: “You’re not important enough.” Truthfully, they were right. I was a nobody. Even though I had an audience and some media hits, for the personal finance media-industrial complex, I was a newbie. A rookie. Not battle-tested against the many self-de...

150 Renowned Secular Academics & 20 Christian Thinkers Talking About the Existence of God

Of the many books released over the past couple decades about the existence or nonexistence of God (and there were a lot) one of the best comes from philosopher and novelist Rebecca Goldstein. Her 2010 36 Arguments for the Existence of God is not, however, a work of popular theology or anti-theology; it is fiction, a satire of academia, the publishing world, the Judaism she left behind, and the bubble of hype that once inflated around so-called “new atheism."

The “Radically Casual” Charm of Lost Levels: A rundown of the microtalks from the GDC-adjacent game design unconference

This was my first year attending the Game Developer’s Conference as press, and I spent a lot of time crawling the expo hall and sessions, looking to uncover cool new games and behind-the-scenes development stories. But on Thursday afternoon, I took a break from the crowds at Moscone Center in San Francisco to sit down in the nearby Yerba Buena Gardens public park for something completely different: the seventh annual Lost Levels.

Comment on Comment Guidelines by Cass

These Raspberry Breakfast Bars look amazing. My wife and I were trying to come up with a new breakfast food for early morning travels. Our family is on the move often and will make homemade treats to eat thus allowing us to get moving quickly. We find this is more convenient for our family of six. It beats sitting around restaurants or a hotel lobby. Your raspberry bars will be perfect. We look forward to trying them!

While fly fishing for bass and bream is not new, this evolution toward larger, more powerful species has accelerated over the last decade. It is driven by anglers seeking a thrill more visc...

Must Lawyers Use AI in 2019? According to One Judge, the Answer is “Yes”

Here is a recent Daily Record column. My past Daily Record articles can be accessed here. ***** Must Lawyers Use AI in 2019? According to One Judge, the Answer is “Yes” Many of the lawyers I encounter are intimidated by technology. Rapid technological advancements have left them bewildered, and thus unwilling to even attempt to catch up. For those lawyers, turning a blind eye to technology and practicing law as if it were still 1995 seems like a viable option. After all, it’s worked so far,...
