Too many calories = me getting fat? Nah, that can't be true.

Boing Boing has a post today that takes a non-emotional look at High Fructose Corn Syrup.
"Keep an eye out for added sugars—of all kinds—in products. If you're worried about empty calories and weight gain, that's your real concern. But don't stress too much about this. Cutting down on the added sugars in your life is good. But a little added sugar isn't going to kill you. And high-fructose corn syrup isn't more of a worry than any other sweetener."

WHAT?!   It might NOT be the scourge of mankind?  But everyone told me it was evil!  Now I need to rethink the manifesto I was writing.  What else rhymes with stirrup?

Don't call it a comeback

Really please don't.

Preview Night 2010

It's like a dress rehearsal for the weekend. A little loose and rusty, but lots of fun and a couple of pitchers too.

What Am I Doing in Chicago, right now?

I'm re-encoding a lot of film files and checking the shows with Nels to make sure there aren't any glitches. So far there ARE glitches and luckily we have time to fix them.
Nels is thinking that going HiDef this year might not be worth the extra trouble it causes. It does cause a lot of extra troubles.
Our new media player is working out quite well, but it's not perfect. It accepts more formats than any of the others we've tried, but it's not perfect.
Nels is making notes about any special treatment that a show might require. Some movies have the color-bars, slate and countdown hard coded into the file or the DVD. This is inconvenient for us, however if a festival still shows your movie on a DVD player then I'm sure it's REALLY inconvenient.

I'm a little muddled, a little tired and a lot busy. I gotta go.

Test For Colorblindness

Welcome To Chicago

Landed in one piece, but it was bumpy.
Highlight of the flight is when the guy on my left knocked my orange juice onto my pant leg and my hoodie but didn't notice. The guy on my right was sleeping soundly and I couldn't get up to go to the restroom because the plane had started it's bumpy descent into O'Hare.

Oh, and the movie was M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, so how do YOU think the flight went?

The Smart Patrol, now on Facebook

If I did this right, you're on Facebook and this showed up. If I didn't, then it's all for nought.
