- The Most Famous Sitcom Residences In New York City – Did you know Lucy and Desi lived on the Upper East Side? I had no idea, but apparently, their apartment was located at 623 East 68th Street. There’s just one problem – that puts them right in the middle of the East River. While Lucy and Desi’s apartment might not have a real world counterpart
- Damien Chazelle on what is and isn’t ambiguous about Whiplash / The Dissolve – Certainly, one thing I should clarify—he did pretty much all of the visual drumming onscreen, but the audio of the drum solo at the end is mostly not Miles. He’s not actually the greatest drummer on planet Earth. [Laughs.] But he learned how to seem like he was the greatest drummer on Earth. It’s all about visual tricks. It’s about doing stuff that looks difficult, but isn’t that difficult. As a drummer myself, I knew what those things are. Piano’s the same thing. It’s really easy for pianists to do fast arpeggios, and people look at it and go “Wow,” but it’s still actually easy. As a drummer, it’s pretty easy to do fast stick work, and spin around, and do stuff that’s really fast, or do over/underarm stuff. There are just certain kinds of things you can do that look impressive.

- Elokuvissa esiintyvien hahmojen luokittelu on melko hankalaa – Even something as simple as perceived age can be thorny. Characters are tagged depending on which age bucket they fall into — 5 or younger, 6 to 12, 13 to 20, 21 to 39, 40 to 65 and 65 or older. Most people are good at sorting characters into the three younger groups, but it can be hard, particularly for coders in their late teens or early 20s, to gauge age over 30. When they can’t cross-check IMDb for the age of the actor — like in the case of an uncredited background character who speaks — the coders are trained to reach a consensus based on stuff like laugh lines, hair color or the age of that character’s children (if any).
