Because it's invasive. You can't measure the totality of the customer experience without creating the experience of being spied on. Don't try to measure my experience. Listen to me when I choose to tell you about it.

Moral of this story: We should demolish Stonehenge and build a block of flats. That is where you were going with this, right?

Maybe it has something to do with how unpardonablely ugly most of the churches built in the last 60 years have been, inside and out.

If, after the ressurection of the body, we can't all sit and have a beer, what's the point?

Jackson found a way to take something utterly different from everything around it, before it, or after it and make it the same. LOTR may not be a great book, but it is a different book. Jackson made it into familiar Hollywood noise and pablum.

I always assumed that the point of restricting points to the top ten was to discourage teams from mending broken cars and putting them back on the track. Felt NASCAR should have done the same years ago.

I wonder if the hopes and dreams bin is emptied on a regular basis. Also, what is the environmentally responsible way to dispose of hope and dreams? Can they be reused or recycled? Is there a market for second-hand hopes and hand-me-down dreams?

Mr Previn, you may have been a world renowned pianist, conductor, and composer, winner of four Academy Awards and ten Grammy Awards but for most people in Britain you will always be remembered for this sketch. Not a bad legacy to have I think? RIP Andre Previn.

"A writer out of loneliness is trying to communicate like a distant star sending signals... He seeks to establish a relationship of meaning, of feeling, of observing. We are lonesome animals. We spend all life trying to be less lonesome." - John Steinbeck

Children are the price you pay for having grandchildren. Even when they detest and abuse their parents, kids still love grandma and grandpa.

Every profession has it's own language, as I learned in my old job as a tech writer. We don't speak a common language. We speak a thousand different languages with a shared core.

I wrote the first 30 pages or so then sketched out the rest of the book in the same document, basically paying attention to the sources of tension as it developed, then wrote over the sketch. Paying attention to tension from the beginning seems to be key for me.

All fiction is counterfactual, and most fiction is historical. Everything depends on the skill of the execution, and on the hour of transmission.
