I’m currently watching the movie San Andreas, and it seems like a matter of convenient marketing oriented screenplay that in the aftermath of the earthquake, two of the main characters just happened to be in the very same spot (in Los Angeles no less) they needed to be in to find the other main characters.
Americans want their cinema to have good endings for the protagonists to the point where the storyline often has form insane coincidences for that to be able to happen.
If this were a French film, it’s likely all the characters would die, and there’d be no resolution acceptable to American movie goers.
There’s so much damned smoke in my area due to U.S. Southwest wildfires that the moon looked red the other night!
The photos don’t really do them justice.
Basically the closest thing to full on Cool & the Gang style funk that was ever played on a Sonic the Hedgehog video game.
Chose this song because country music lost one of its finest recently.
RIP, Glen Cambell.
And I don’t mean “ripping” music for the ipod…
I heard it yesterday that Apple will no longer be making iPods soon. I kinda figured this was on its way; the mp3 itself has recently been replaced in terms of licensing with a more efficient type of file and these days people aren’t as interested in gadgets that only function as music players…they could just use the mp3 player in their smartphones just like they use their smartphones as cameras, computers, and planners already.
That said, I’ll miss it. I still have an iPod touch that I bought back in 2009. Still runs quite a bit more smoothly than my new smartphone.
