"Like" and I Could Win $1,000 -
By jjakecox on April 18
I’m using the app Lightt (www.lightt.com) for the stop-motion effect and an Ollo Clip (www.olloclip.com) for the fish eye look.
The opportunity to “Like” is here: http://lightt.com/jjakecox/s/CFg5m-qF0R4qQpIgAKH74y?awesm=ligh.tt_b073
“Profit and growth are stimulated primarily by customer loyalty. Loyalty is a direct result of customer satisfaction. Satisfaction is largely influenced by the value of services provided to customers. Value is created by satisfied, loyal, and productive employees.”
my advice for anyone trying to succeed on the web is, make the highest-end product you can, and then target the tiny handful of people– the microaudience- who are likely to buy it. Forget the masses. Targeting the latter is too much like trying to win the lottery– though great when it happens (however unlikely), there are just too many damn variables outside your control. — Hugh MacLeod (via om)
…The key to any advance is to be able “to explain the complex visible by some simple invisible.”

“…I would die talking before I lifted a weapon…”
Marc Andreesen + Alexia Tsotsis.
1) I am of the nature to grow old. There is no way to escape growing old.
2) I am of the nature to have ill health. There is no way to escape ill health.
Bradley Cooper is magnetic. He plays Pat. Pat with bipolar disorder who caught his wife Nikki having shower sex with a tenured colleague at the school where they are both teachers, and beat him silly. The dude said, “You should probably leave,” when Pat walked in on them. Total douche.
Pat gets out of the looney bin and decides to commit himself to winning Nikki back. Bad idea. Reads all the books on her syllabus. Hates “The Old Man and the Sea.” Thinks Hemingway is an a-hole. Meets Tiffany at a dinner with his best bud Ronnie and her wife, the girl from “Save the Last Dance.” What’s her name again? She’s Nikki’s best friend.
Tiffany is recently widowed, and she’s young and pretty and has a history of being a slut, which she’s fine with now, because it’s part of who she is and who she has been, and she’s learned to love all of herself, and to forgive herself and the world for things. Her husband got hit by a car and died.
Tiffany convinces Pat to enter a dance contest with her. They practice in her studio. (They both live at home with their parents, except Tiffany lives in a detached renovated garage out back.) They learn to move off one another, and their chemistry is believable and true and lovely.
Robert de Niro is Pat’s dad. Gambling addict. Runs a sports book to earn money so he can open up a restaurant. The whole movie is a huge Philadelphia Eagles fan — and it’s perfect. The grit stuff, the faith stuff, the city of brotherly love stuff..
God, the whole thing fits together so perfectly..
Happy ending, but I won’t spoil it. Bradley Cooper’s best film. Chris Tucker’s in it. Chris Tucker? Ya.
Not sure which of these would be most helpful for a social media consulting co. with a few clients and a distributed team. Interesting (but maybe not surprising) that task management has blossomed into a super competitive space.
Obviously unicorns don’t actually exist. I don’t totally know how to feel about this. I feel:
- that this is hilarious
- that it’s strange to find something so laughable when there are 25 million people being fed this as fact, and they probably (well, possibly) don’t know how laughable it is
- sorta scared for the world
- really pissed off at supreme leaders and propaganda machines
- that there must be an analogous situation in my life, where some perceived authority is feeding me “facts,” which, to somebody with a better perspective, are completely laughable. What’s my North Korea blindspot?
