The “why” of Ruby on Rails comes down to productivity, says Michael Slater. Web applications that share three characteristics—they’re database-driven, they’re new, and they have needs not well met by a typical CMS—can be built much more quickly with Ruby on Rails than with PHP, .NET, or Java, once the investment required to learn Rails has been made. Does your web app fall within the RoR “sweet spot?”

Ellen and Neil from the seven piece band Los Campesinos talk about the music scene in their home town Cardiff and writing songs with so many band members.
(I told George Lucas) it’d make a better story (if Han Solo had died in Empire or Jedi). You don’t need him. He’s got no mama, got no papa - out there all by himself. He’s a piece you can move around or get rid of. I couldn’t get George to go along with that. He didn’t want to stop making the toys.

Lucas: But look, it’s like sports. This isn’t new. When March Madness gets started with the NCAA [basketball tournament], there are thousands of blogs out there. Rampant speculation. If you follow it enough, you go crazy. [With Crystal Skull], you don’t know what’s actually gonna happen till you walk into that theater. I don’t care if you know the whole story, I don’t care if you’ve seen clips. I don’t care how much you’ve seen or heard or read. The experience itself is very different, once you walk in that theater.
Spielberg: Well, here’s my debate on that. I’ve always been stingy about the scenes I show in a teaser or a trailer. Because my experience has been — and my kids’ experience has been, ’cause they talk out loud in theaters, like everybody else does today — that if a scene they remember from the trailer hasn’t come on the screen yet, and they’re three quarters of the way through the movie, they start talking. ”Oh — I know what’s gonna happen! Because there was that one little scene they haven’t shown yet in the movie I’m experiencing, and it’s coming up!” And it ruins everything.

20 respectable rock and rap acts that peaked with debut albums
Rightly or wrongly cited as 'the greatest TV show ever made about dance culture' this made for television documentary made a huge impact in the UK when it was first shown. Certainly it did capture an accurate snapshot of a moment in the history of the music scene - a moment when a small, typically British, hedonistic sub-culture - namely acid house - began to cross over on its way to becoming a remarkably enduring and potent force.
A Short Film About Chilling' was filmed in Ibiza in 1990 just before that island exploded into the worldwide consciousness as the spiritual home of club culture. It followed a group of DJ's, bands and clubbers intent on 'losing it' in the island's legendary nightclubs which are described by one wag in the film as being like "Disneyland for the club-goer".

The Stupid Robot Contest is an annual show held by Meiwa Electronics to determine whose robot is the silliest. There are just three criteria that a robot must meet in order to be entered in this contest:
1. It must be mechanical
2. It must be completely useless from a societal point of view.
3. It must make people laugh.
Die Musikindustrie konnte sich in den vergangenen Jahren einige ungewöhnliche Rechte sichern – etwa das auf direkte Datenabfrage beim Internetprovider oder ein Verbot von "Umgehungstechnologie". Nun formulierte die Universal Music Group (UMG) in den USA einen neuen Anspruch. Danach sollen auch der Weiterverkauf und das Wegwerfen von CDs Copyright-Verletzungen darstellen können.

THIS was going to be a simple artist-at-work article about Al Jaffee, a man who could lay claim to being the world’s oldest adolescent and who just now is enjoying a fresh burst of public and professional recognition. The idea was to look in on him as he created the latest installment of a feature he has been drawing for Mad magazine since, incredibly, 1964.

Amazingly enough, these two twin boys from Tokio Hotel have separate looks for their hair, but each style is equally questionable. Tom sports dreads worn underneath a toque AND a baseball hat in a ponytail fashion. But that's nothing compared to Bill's 'do, which looks like he just touched the elecrticity ball at the Science Centre. It's like 80s Metal Hair on drugs, with a new-school penchant for giant weaves thrown in for good measure. Listen, twins. Dressing alike is unnecessary, but your mane style may be even more unnecessary-er (yeah, we went there). We know you've got a kabillion fans and while we do enjoy your attempts at being avant-garde, please consider a good visit to the barber in your 5 Year Plan.
We’ve all heard the “official conspiracy theory” of the Death Star attack. We all know about Luke Skywalker and his ragtag bunch of rebels, how they mounted a foolhardy attack on the most powerful, well-defended battle station ever built. And we’ve all seen the video over, and over, and over, of the one-in-a-million shot that resulted in a massive chain reaction that not just damaged, but completely obliterated that massive technological wonder.
Like many citizens of the Empire, I was fed this story when I was growing up. But as I watched the video, I began to realize that all was not as it seemed. And the more I questioned the official story, the deeper into the rabbit hole I went.
10,000 B.C., Gladiator, 300, Apocalypto und 2001: A Space Odyssey
According to this film, in year 2001 we would have had manned voyages to Jupiter, a battle of wits with a sentient computer, and a quantum leap in human evolution. Instead we got the Mir Space Station falling from the sky, Windows XP, and Freddy Got Fingered. Apparently the lesson here is that sometimes it's better when the movies get the facts all wrong.

Segways neuer RMP Prototyp

So. I finally had a meeting with them, on the 5th December 2006. General meet and greet, no guarantees, no idea what to expect. Would they ask me for ideas? Discuss the series? Offer me a job? I had no idea. In these situations, it's always best to over-prepare. I re-watched some of the episodes (I'd already been watching, as a fan, but wanted them fresh in my mind), and made as many notes as I could for myself - what did I like, what didn't I like, what worked best for me, what I'd like to see more of, and so on. And because I didn't know if I was expected to bring anything to the table immediately, I came up with 3 ideas for episodes, just in case they asked (they didn't, but you never know).

It's common knowledge that you can use your Apple Remote to play music, watch movies, and flip through pictures. This all comes in very handy, especially when you use your Mac as a full-blown entertainment center. What you might not know is that you can also use your remote to put your Mac to sleep, present a Keynote presentation, and lock your Mac.

What [High School Teacher] Golden is doing is using the original trilogy as a tool to teach ninth-graders about basic literary concepts like foreshadowing, symbolism and the importance of getting your hand cut off by your father who's turned into an evil cyborg obeying a wrinkled old man who can shoot lightning out his hands. Surprisingly, the kids seem to be digging it...

MAKES A DRAMATIC SCORPION MARTINI
WITH THE SCORPION IN THE GLASS - GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO AN OLIVE!
You won't believe the contraption they've strapped to FMV celeb Joe Kucan's head. Half Terminator, half 1940s football helmet, it's the most incredible thing to happen to the Command & Conquer series since the sonic tank.
Which, by the way, is back. C&C3 expansion Kane's Wrath features plenty of oldies-but-boldies from the series' past, but doesn't lean too much on its history, either. One of the key factors for any expansion pack is that it brings a genuinely new game experience, while still integrating smoothly with past iterations. And KW does both in spades: The turn-based Global Conquest Mode and the 30 new multiplayer maps alone would be enough content for most expansions to call it a day. But KW goes on to throw in a full 13-mission Nod campaign, new "epic" units for each side, and six subfactions à la C&C: Generals: Zero Hour. That's a lot of entertainment for $30.
After a few weeks in the arms of Firefox 3 betas, I’ve returned to Safari as my daily browser. Unsurprisingly, it’s the interface that drove me back.
But I’m not talking about cosmetic issues — or at least not only about cosmetic issues. The new default theme for Firefox theme looks pretty good, especially when you switch the toolbar icons to the small size. The Safari-style “GrApple” Firefox themes I linked to last month makes Firefox 3 look even better, albeit mostly by mimicking Safari.
“Cannonball” was a big crossover hit. Ever get sick of it?
Kim Deal: No. That used to be a popular stance for indie-rockers to take. If somebody actually liked one of their songs, then they would hate the song. I was never like that.
Did the success of that song cause any jealousy among your indie-rock peers?
Kim Deal: You know, [Pavement’s Stephen] Malkmus is being a bit of a bitch in interviews recently. One thing he said last summer referred to me as “trashy mouth.” And he just did this article in Spin where he alluded to me unpleasantly, saying [something like], “You know, I always thought that Pavement could have had one of those big hits in the early ’90s with ‘Cut Your Hair,’ but I guess people preferred ‘Cannonball.’”
Are you a fan of his music?
Kim Deal: Yeah, I liked Pavement. But if he keeps fucking smacking his mouth off about me, I’m going to end up not being able to listen to any of their fucking records again. Anyway, I thought, God, man, “Cut Your Hair” isn’t as good of a song as “Cannonball,” so fuck you. How’s that? Your song was just a’ight, dawg.

Now, let us just say, the whole point of this Pitchfork.tv thing is to focus on bands and music-- not ourselves. But after a year's worth of backbreaking, film-rolling, FLV-compressing hard work, we figured if you guys were ever going to tolerate a little behind-the-scenes indulgence like this, now would be the time. Please bear with us. We swear, it's music from here on out.
