ThinkingRock How ‘Dune’ almost prevented ‘Star Wars’ from ever being Cannes, France – Remember how bad the movie “Dune” was? Well, it didn’t have to be that way. The film, directed by David Lynch in 1984, was so terrible, David Lynch eventually took his name off of it. But Lynch wouldn’t have had a chance to direct “Dune” if its original director had been able to get it made back in the mid-1970s. “Jodorowsky’s Dune” tells the tale of the director’s mad plan to recruit a cast including David Carradine, Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, and Mick Jagger to his movie adaptation of the wildly popular sci-fi book. Oh yeah, and Pink Floyd was doing the soundtrack. “What we try to get across in the film is his whole notion of ambition,” the documentary’s director, Frank Pavek, told FOX411. And try he did. Over the course of two years , besides the diverse luminaries listed above, Jodorowsky assembled a team of artists and designers that could make his science fiction vision a reality, pros including artists H.R. And then Jodorowsky shopped it to the studios.

Getting Things Done Personal productivity system and 2001 book The GTD method rests on the idea of moving all items of interest, relevant information, issues, tasks and projects out of one's mind by recording them externally and then breaking them into actionable work items with known time limits.[b][c] This allows one's attention to focus on taking action on each task listed in an external record, instead of recalling them intuitively.[5] First published in 2001,[4] a revised edition of the book was released in 2015 to reflect the changes in information technology during the preceding decade.[1] Themes[edit] Allen first demonstrates stress reduction from the method with the following exercise, centered on a task that has an unclear outcome or whose next action is not defined. The most annoying, distracting, or interesting task is chosen, and defined as an "incomplete".

FlashForward (TV Series 2009–2010 How To: Declutter Your Hard Drive There is a very easy way to avoid the \Program Files and \Documents and Settings folders with windows XP that doesn't involve JUNCTION or SUBST, TweakUI and is very portable and secure. Simply use TrueCrypt. TrueCrypt has been mentioned many times here at Lifehacker and it is not only a great tool for encrypting, it is invaluable as an organization tool. I have a 1.5gig file on my hard drive that I keep my applications and documents in. I have a copy of the same file on a USB drive and use TotalCommander to keep the files inside synchronized. When I mount the TrueCrypt file, it opens with a new drive letter. For more information on my TrueCrypt installation, see: [] And to read about the Applications I carry on my USB see: []

12 Years a Slave Movie Review (2013 After "Django Unchained" and Lee Daniels' "The Butler," both informed by the shameful legacy of slavery and institutionalized injustice in America, you might think you have satisfied your quota of viewing incidents of racial hatred, sexual abuse and ugly brutality in the past year. You would be wrong. While both of those box-office and critical successes offered compensation for their heavy subject matter with outbreaks of humor and a hip attitude, "12 Years a Slave" is a somber, meditative, almost poetic film that delivers the horrors of bondage stripped down and head-on. For once, history is presented as personal and immediate, not a saga relying on scholarly works and court records à la "Amistad." The source is a rare first-hand account based on the best-selling 19th-century memoir written by Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York who suddenly had his liberty torn away after being kidnapped and sold for slave labor in Louisiana.
