I know what you’re thinking – there are more signs to tell me that I’ve got a crazy girlfriend? There are so many signs. If you’re in denial, this is the list for you. Otherwise, you’re going to spend the next few years with a crazy person.
25. She’s deeply religious.
Nothing’s wrong with spirituality, but too much dedication to ANY religion is downright scary. Don’t assume she’s crazy just because she goes to church, but keep an eye on how devoted she is. Sometimes it’s a sign that she’s susceptible, and it might cause problems down the road for you.
26. Stability bores her.
Check out #21 in this series. Can you say, Sylvia Plath? Usually, a relationship makes people want to stay in and spend time with their partner. If she’d rather go out – every night – than stay home and watch TV, she likely has a problem with stability and gets bored easily. After I got out of a long-term relationship, I definitely felt this way. I knew it was a phase though. I just wanted to have fun. Once I got into a relationship my attitude changed. If hers doesn’t, you might want to reconsider who you spend time with.
27. She has no or very little contact with her family or anyone from her past.
There’s got to be a reason for this. You can side with her and believe the whole world’s against her, or you can choose to be realistic.… Read the rest
Snap (the parent company of Snapchat) has been having a hard time getting new people to its service. Which might be why they are teaming up with NBCUniversal in order to produce content for entertainment – specifically on apps. This is kind of interesting, isn’t it? I mean, from an entertainment perspective, social media companies are getting into the business. And not just social media companies, but tech giants as well. Netflix has sort of been the pioneer in this regard, but their foray into the original content business kind of makes sense. But you’ve got Facebook investing money into creating original content, and now Snap. I’m not complaining, but I just wonder at what point we draw the line?
The company, which hasn’t been named yet, will be half owned by NBCUniversal and half by Snap. Their first big score is landing independent filmmakers, Jay and Mark Duplass as their first creative partners. If you’re not familiar with the Duplass brothers, you should check out their body of work – it’s incredible. But I am an indie film fan, so perhaps I’m a bit biased with this one.
And why is this suddenly becoming so popular? Well, mobile is the new medium. I mean, its how I watch a portion of TV and I can’t be the only one taking advantage of the ability to be mobile. Both companies adhere to the idea that entertainment for mobile platforms needs to be produced differently than for traditional venues.… Read the rest
There is a new streaming service available. It’s called Movies Anywhere, and it sounds like it’s too good to be true. It doesn’t only put your online movies in one place, it puts them everywhere. Which is kind of confusing at first glance. But think of it this way – it’s like a digital bridge between the big four online video vendors: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Vudu. Letting you access their content – anywhere. Movies Anywhere is backed by Warner Brothers, Disney, Universal, Sony, and Fox. Which means films produced by these studios will appear in the Movies Anywhere app – regardless of where you originally purchased them.
The app works on iOS and Android devices – including Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast and on Roku devices. Movies Anywhere said that more platforms and retailers are still to come. It also works in your browser so if you don’t have any of the above-mentioned devices, you can still use it.
It still sounds complicated, doesn’t it? Let’s look at an example – let’s say you bought “The Dark Knight”, which is a Warner Brothers movie on iTunes. If you link your iTunes account with Movies Anywhere, that movie will then be available through the Movies Anywhere app AND the Vudu, Google Play, and Amazon apps. Which means you can, for instance, get movies that you bought on iTunes through non-Apple devices like Roku and Android phones for the first time. … Read the rest
