Netflix… You almost got MNP’d

In a move that can only be described as "semi," the CEO of Netflix (which I can only assume actually means the PR team + the CEO of Netflix) has decided to send out the equivalent of a correction e-mail to all of its customers.  You might have noticed this spam in your inbox this morning as you returned to work and the email barrage that usually coincides with such.

The problem with this e-mail is that it makes no corrections, but in effect apologizes for an e-mail about a month ago where Netflix explained that it was upping its prices.  To make matters worse in the confusion department, Netflix also decided to use this negative PR moment to announce that they are splitting their services (in a totally convoluted way).

This isn’t the first time they’ve blown it, either. Or the second time

Here’s a tip, Netflix, or Qwikster or whatever the hell it is you call yourself: if you’re gonna apologize, then really apologize…  like give us a free extra month of DVD service, or one free rental… or SOMEThing.  If not, then please SHUT THE HELL UP and stay outta my inbox.  There’s nothing worse than reading an entire e-mail from Netflix and not getting anything free out of it.  I, too, was disappointed with the disassociation of DVD and streaming services - but I didn’t have a poor view of your company from an operational standpoint until you guys started getting out of control with these e-mails.  You know what’s arrogant, Netflix?  Thinking that you can disguise a marketing announcement as an apology, because you forgot to say it all last time, and not really apologizing at all - that’s arrogant. My ninja… I guess they’re lucky this week, because we have an even more ridiculous MNP coming up.

Saturn Fly-By

5.6k Saturn Cassini Photographic Animation from stephen v2 on Vimeo.

Animated from thousands of still photographs, this virtual fly-by is a preview of an IMAX film in the works. Each image comes from the Cassini-Huygens Orbiter, launched in conjunction with a Titan probe of the same name in 1997 and transmitting stunning visuals since 2004. This one goes out to all of our space-ninjas; it’s far more difficult to hear or see a ninja coming in space, btw.

Who is Brian Johnson?

Take a journey back to a time to before CGI, when pyrotechnics and model-making were the chief tools in science fiction’s special effects. From Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey to Gerry Anderson’s UFO and Space: 1999, one man was central in setting the standard for the Star Wars enterprise to come… (Source)

Are Artists Liars?

Shortly before his death, Marlon Brando was working on a series of instructional videos about acting, to be called "Lying for a Living". On the surviving footage, Brando can be seen dispensing gnomic advice on his craft to a group of enthusiastic, if somewhat bemused, Hollywood stars, including Leonardo Di Caprio and Sean Penn. Brando also recruited random people from the Los Angeles street and persuaded them to improvise (the footage is said to include a memorable scene featuring two dwarves and a giant Samoan). "If you can lie, you can act," Brando told Jod Kaftan, a writer for Rolling Stone and one of the few people to have viewed the footage. "Are you good at lying?" asked Kaftan. "Jesus," said Brando, "I’m fabulous at it."
