Modern Family iPhone Episode: "Connection Lost" and Storytelling By the time you reach your sixth year of anything, you’ve got to find new ways to keep it interesting. Last night’s Modern Family tried something new: The entire episode, running more than 21 minutes, was filmed on iPhones and other Apple devices, with the familiar backdrop of a computer desktop. Seen from Claire’s perspective, the episode follows all the main characters as they interact online. Since “Connection Lost” aired, much has been made of how the episode focuses on Apple products, or how the cast and crew pulled off filming it, or how it speaks to themes of communication within a family.

Cannabis enhances excuse-making ability REGULAR cannabis smoking boosts the part of the brain that invents excuses. The Institute for Studies found that people who smoke skunk daily are 84 per cent more effective at explaining why they had failed to do things. Professor Henry Brubaker said: “Stoners’ brains evolve this amazing capacity to make up bullshit excuses which, although unconvincing, are at least creative. “Long-term cannabis users show extensive growth in the ninth ventricle, the region of the brain that deals with responsibility avoidance.”
The Null Device The results of Eurovision 2014 are in, and, as reported here, the big winner was Austria's Conchita Wurst, a bearded drag performer, with a resolute and melodramatic torch song titled Rise Like A Phoenix. Wurst (whose real name is Tom Neuwirth) won a runaway victory, with 290 points and a string of 12s, including ones from countries who might otherwise haver found a bearded drag performer too transgressive. The runner-up was the Netherlands, 52 points behind with a rather nice piece of slow-burning Americana. 2014 was arguably the most geopolitically charged Eurovision Song Contest in years, if not decades; the kitschy music equivalent of the World Chess Championship of 1972, in that, within its formalised, tightly circumscribed arena, the tensions of an active geopolitical fault line manifested themselves.

The Washington Post Folsom, Pa. The Johnson family’s neighborhood, just a half-hour southwest of Philadelphia, is made up of the neat, modest brick houses that sprang up all across postwar America. It was not a happy home. Robert, his father, had studied to become an artist before giving it up to become a machinist. According to Math, the Worst Color Shirt to Wear on Star Trek Is Actually Yellow It’s a well known maxim that nobody wants to be a redshirt on Star Trek: The Original Series. The proud members of Operations, Engineering, and Security are the space-expendables, the first line of defense, the… well the ones who always get sent down with the away party full of more important characters and get murdered by the space monster of the week. Like, all the time. But what if, instead of considering this from the viewer’s perspective, you considered it from the perspective of a crewman choosing a line of work?
