Were you one of the lucky ones to get Apple Maps when it was first released? Did you try to use Apple Maps to get anywhere? Are you still NOT there?
Well, great news…Apple is now destroying bridges, realigning streets, moving buildings and creating giant green squares to cover certain cities…so real earth will look like earth on Apple Maps. Google that, Apple!
Life of Pi is one of my fav films this year and I’m happy to report the folks at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences likes it too.
The amazing film just got eleven Oscar noms: Best Picture, Cinematography, Directing, Film Editing, Music (Original Score), Music (Original Song), Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, and Writing (Adapted Screenplay). I’m sure Pi has loads of noms for technical Oscars too!
Also a big HIGH FIVE to my friend, Ron Judkins, who’s been nominated for Sound Mixing this year for his work on Lincoln. He won Best Sound for Jurassic Park and was also nominated for Best Sound for Schindler’s List in 1994. He won Best Sound for Saving Private Ryan in 1999 and was nominated for Best Achievement in Sound Mixing for War of the Worlds in 2006. Amazing career, Ron! Amazing work!
Here’s a downloadable list directly from the Academy of all the creative Oscar nominations announced today.
After several minutes of friendly interviewing, Russell Brand finally gets down to the catch phrase of the Westboro Baptist Church: “We just preach the Bible. We’re not making this stuff up.”
Then Russell and the folks from Westboro play the Heaven or Hell game. Madonna, Tom Hanks, Gandhi…all going to Hell according to Westboro.
To top it all off, Russell brings three lovely gay lads on stage to have a chat with the lovely not-gay lads from Westboro.
Jesus loves all the little children of the world. That means all of us.
