Posted in: Tokyo to cut back on athletes at Olympics opening ceremony See in context

Why even hold it at all? If the point is the athletics then this is superfluous.

Keep in mind that the Olympics only make money for the IOC. For everyone else, it costs money.

The Olympic rings have become a symbol of graft, greed and money-grubbing. It quit being about the athletes and athletics long ago.

Never a mention of a film he wrote and directed, which starred Dick Van Dyke - The Comic. A very dark take on Hollywood and stardom. And a very good film. He may be gone but his talent is still with us.

The Brown's are named after their original head coach and owner. I'm not certain what offense can be construed from Patriots.

Posted in: Snell now poster child for spoiled MLB players See in context

Not willing to risk his life with a pay cut. But willing to do so without a pay cut? I have to think that there is more elevated risk for him going to the grocery store than it is to be in a practically empty ball stadium.

To be specific, Wyman quit as a touring and recording member of the band. He still holds his share of interest in the Stones as a business entity.

You neglect to mention a song that Dolly wrote placed at #1 TWICE and is the best selling single by a woman in history (version by Whitney Houston). The song is I WIll Always Love You.

Posted in: Koike gives reluctant consent to Olympic race venue move but Tokyo won't pay for it See in context

I think this unmasks the IOC even further and will have great influence on cities considering whether they should host the Olympics or not. Without communication and cooperation the IOC may be left hosting in the only country that still seems interested - China.

How is the IOC an arbiter of food safety? It sounds more like another opportunity to grift money from a host country.

Posted in: Original 'Star Wars' creators lift lid on special effects challenges See in context

Back in the days not all scripts were good. Same as today. And CGI, when done well and used judiciously, can enhance the film. Practical effects and working inside the camera is still used but just not as often because there are better and easier (and often cheaper) ways to achieve these now. Also, by denying Eps. 1-3 you conveniently ignore that George Lucas made a mess of the series. And he continued to do so with the reworking of 4-6 in further releases of those films.

It is unfortunate that legacy beliefs and delivery systems are denying artists recognition for their work. How art, entertainment and media are being consumed is changing and it should be embraced rather than denied.

Tagging is not art. In fact, his tags look similar to many of the other tags you see in the US and throughout Europe. Not art, not original, just vandalism. It should be stopped everywhere.
