NEW SONGS FOR BOOMERS

Red Eyes - The War On Drugs (live performance of song from brilliant 2014 album Lost In The Dream)

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul go into business together and this time it’s legal…barely. Find out what happens when Julia Louis-Dreyfus becomes a client, trying to offload television’s most coveted item, in this video starring three Emmy Award winners.

Republican ads denouncing health reform have been dwindling month by month.

The reason is fairly obvious, although it’s not considered nice to state it bluntly: the attack on Obamacare depended almost entirely on lies, and those lies are becoming unsustainable now that the law is actually working. No, there aren’t any death panels; no, huge numbers of Americans aren’t losing coverage or finding their health costs soaring; no, jobs aren’t being killed in vast numbers. A few relatively affluent, healthy people are paying more for coverage; a few high-income taxpayers are paying more in taxes; a much larger number of Americans are getting coverage that was previously unavailable and/or unaffordable; and most people are seeing no difference at all, except that they no longer have to fear what happens if they lose their current coverage.

In other words, reform is working more or less the way it was supposed to (except for the Medicaid expansion in non-cooperating states).

One recent claim has been that the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 has better battery life than Android. 

Now that theory has some support – on identical hardware, Verizon and HTC claims the HTC One for Windows has significantly longer battery life than the Android version.

During usage (the important bit really) the Windows Phone has 21 hours usage time vs 12 on Android, that’s 75% more.

For standby times the difference is also significant – 15.5 days vs 12.2 days.

It seems if you just want to keep going, Windows Phone is in fact the OS for you. (via Interesting: With identical hardware, the HTC One for Windows offers nearly double the battery life vs Android version | WMPoweruser)

The Addams Family living room was actually pink…

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

Stop blaming your job for why you can’t accomplish your personal goals. Nearly everyone is held to some form of time constraint, but the people that truly want to achieve find the time. You think you’re the first person to feel tired after a day of work? You think you’re the first person to feel overwhelmed with how busy you are?Look for the moments, the brief periods of time you have to do what you like and exploit them. Instead of taking that time to think about how tired, busy, or unhappy you are, use it to move forward with what you love. It takes time to do great things. Earnestly look for time to work on what you want, but be patient. Don’t quit your day job, just take advantage of it. (via Your Day Job Isn’t an Excuse to Not Pursue Your Passion)
