A QR code (Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside of the industry due to its fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of any kind of data (e.g., binary, alphanumeric, or Kanji symbols
I generated a QR code myself using the one of many on-line generators available today.
"We live in a Twitter world. You have to be able to hook someone in 140 characters or less." - Cassie, played by Krysten Ritter, who btw pops everywhere as a supporting character, in Love Bites, which btw I think is a total fail of a series (great attempt at the 3-vignette episode format, but otherwise - bleh), from the first episode aptly titled "Firsts", which btw is the only episode I had the patience to watch. Thank you very much.
I don't really know why but ten minutes into the movie and I already knew it was based on a book. A novel I've never heard of until today is not at all unusual but me not hearing about a novel as good as this one (and I'm judging solely on the film adaptation's performance) is something of a rarity. The he says-she says storytelling is brilliant. The characters are alive and dynamic and we see them course through changes in two very different first-person point of views. With this, we are reminded that we may look at the same thing at the same time, but what you perceive may not always be the same as what another does. Respect would probably be the strongest lesson the film offers. But if you're not out to look for lessons, Flipped's romantic lead would probably be enough to satisfy - charming, good-looking, and very talented. That Callan McAuliffe sure is going places.
Flipped - latest movie I saw that did not disappoint. I recommend it.
So, yeah, I have been posting random quips over at google+ since I've had an account (and no, I'm not part of the "first" batch, whatever that means). None of them are original, of course, since it has been a habit of mine to copy down a quip from wherever I come across one on the net that merited being, well, copied down. Wily, yes? One memorable quote I stumbled upon is: To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research. This line spoke SO MUCH truth that I decided to live by it. Starting with sharing it in google+; the fact that it was authorless when I found it online did not stop me at all. Somebody in the comments section asked where I get these one-liners (cause apparently these rouse insecurity in them haha), and I was about to write a real snappy comeback but somebody neat me to it when they said "Steven Wright". I was like, Steven who? Good thing google is my cousin, and he introduced me to who Steven Wright just is -- the owner of the mouth where words loved most by the wittiest of us come out. So, yeah. Thanks Steven Wright for being you. (And thanks google for being related to me, I'll never disown you.)
to you who say people who keep posting nonsense on social networking sites should just keep their nonsense to themselves, there's actually a quick and no-nonsense solution to keep from being annoyed senseless by all the nonsense: STOP JOINING NETWORKING SITES. otherwise, you can go off yourselves. please.
Yep, The Hunger Games movie. There's Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique in X-Men First Class), Josh Hutcherson and what's-his-face Miley Cyrus's ex as leads. March 23, 2012. I actually am looking forward to this one, especially since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was such a letdown - really, that 19 years later bit was funny in all the wrong ways. Anyway, Lionsgate also released a motion poster --well, that's new; probably the term for we don't have any clips to make a trailer yet but since you can't wait; hmmm, i should submit that to urbandictionary.com. It's awesome graphically but it really doesn't give you anything more about the movie, blergh. Watch it here.
