Do you think Peter is burning the tickets because the film was so lousy (I never saw it, so I don’t know), or, being the soccer fanatic he is , following every aspect of the tournament with an eagle eye , is Peter possibly upset that Norway, or, for that matter, nobody from a Scandinavian country will be competing in World Cup 2014?

What prompted his incendiary act?

Back to Jack. In 2006?, there was a screening of The African Queen which I attended with my lovely wife.

In fact, it was so hot that every few minutes he had to stop shooting because the actors’ makeup would start running.

Anyway, after the screening was over, there was a Q&A with Jack , who was about 91 years old at the time and a crew member from the audience thinking in terms of technical cinematographic hurdles, got up and asked Jack what he thought was the most difficult thing about the movie production?

Jack paused for a moment….thinking…..and then said...



‘It was either the poisonous snakes or the crocodiles’.

Hehe, that movie (#3422) is probably as rubbish as the Scandinavian national teams at the moment. But Zlatan should be in the World Cup...
Zlatan: World Cup without me is nothing to watch.
We beat Brazil in World Cup 98, Flonaldo scoring. And in 97 also

Sir, I thought we’re not allowed to enjoy Blu-ray media anymore because some ‘internet analysts’ with their 2 cent editorializations have deemed its demise, faster than once predicted.

“See this Blu-ray”, isn’t that kind of like trying to enjoy life all the while knowing in the back of your mind that someday, one way or another, you’re going to die? No can do.

Of course, I can’t even enjoy my current home display(s) at all just knowing that holodecks will eventually debut and prevail, scroll to 16:30-16:45 ….

But, it’s been a good Saturday.

Firstly, Arsenal won the F.A. Cup.

Secondly, back in Maryland but about 20 min. from the Med. Center, there is a race course called Pimlico where dem horses run the Preakness.

And today the dream remained alive ….

I had to record the unique La Liga title decider which I’ll be watching this evening (in HD)….rooting for an exciting match and a different champion (Atlético Madrid), just for a change.

We’ll see what happens. Sports galore this weekend . b.t.w., your countryman, Sir Bradley Wiggins won The Tour of California which ended in Thousand Oaks, Ca. - http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/cycling/27464292

Just finished watching that ^ with my Sunday morning ride group.

The basic two schools of thought be……
(keeping in mind there is no production or distribution or home infrastructure for 4K/120fps….yet, so we’re talking on the far horizon)

1. Capture at 4K/120fps and then compress it for sending along the signal chain delivery infrastructure into consumers’ homes.

or

2. Capture at 4K/120fps, then downcovert the material to traditional HD resolution and frame rate with metadata for sending thru the delivery infrastructure to the home where it is then re-converted back to 4K/120fps.

But I think my fave remains Shakira (from 2010) after watching the official video for the 2014 tournament. However that Pitbull is one lucky dawg.
