A virtual dissertation when a simple answer is all that is needed. Why do people do that? It's like I ask what time it is and I end up with a tutorial of how to build an atomic clock.

There are some people that absolutely need an easily accessible switch to turn off verbose mode.

The bobboing camera style is becoming very popular due to folks with short attentions spans and the fact that movement keeps your eyes on the screen, it also is supposed to lend a kind of grittiness and a feeling as if you are there watching the actors and being in the same room, looking back and forth as if your eyes were the camera, its a technique that started awhile ago and made famous by shows like NYPD Blue. I hate it, its as if the director is trying to tell me where to look, where he thinks my attention should be. Have we becoming that stupid......oh..... never mind.

Drives me nuts too, which probably explains why I don't watch ANY television any more.

I always thought the technique was supposed to give you the belief that you were watching real stuff instead of a bunch of tired, overpaid, starving actors trying to pretend they're significant.  :nuts:

The first time I really started noticing the camera shaking style was in the film "Man on Fire" with Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning. Otherwise and excellent film IMO, but the constant shaking made me crazy and annoyed!

Being required to provide absurd amounts of constantly changing information the requesting person has no use for, cannot possibly put to use and has yet to realize I haven't updated in weeks.

... the continuous non-stop political tsunami that occurs here in New Hampshire due to the primary.  I'd be glad if it moved to another state.  Looking for volunteers, who wants it?

Yeah, who's gonna notice another turd in the cesspool?


Speaking of which...

Since our Ill-ustrious state hasn't passed this years budget YET (only 6 months overdue) lots of entities are running out of money.  >:(  My wife works at a state supported community college and they started laying folks off left and right this week, the state owes them $5mil. Fortunately she has seniority and is in (almost) no danger. She's quite upset though as you can imagine as her coworkers and friends get called into HR for the bad news.   :(

Subtle hints there but I'm guessing that you're not a fan of the shaky camera style eh Jim?

I never noticed that while watching Modern Family (one of the funniest shows EVER) myself. I'll pay more attention the next time.

+1 I wanted to send Tony Scott (director of "Man on Fire") an email saying "Home Depot called, they want their paint shaker back".

Or when you suggest they do or perhaps even put it in their signature or avatar line and they still don't :/
