Terry Gilliam Loses His Don Quixote Court Case And No Longer Holds The Rights To The Film

quote [ ?The ruling means that the rights to the film belong to Alfama. Any exploitation of the film up until now has been completely illegal and without the authorization of Alfama,? said Branco, in an interview with Screen Daily. ?We will be seeking damages with interest from all the people involved in this illegal production and above all, all those who were complicit in its illegal exploitation. We?re holding everyone responsible.? ]

Worst case, a pristine 4k torrent suddenly becomes available, from an "unknown source." Gilliam just had a stroke a few weeks ago; I doubt he gives a flying fuck through a rolling doughnut what Paulo Branco thinks he owns. Case summary in extended.

The Longest Poem in the World

quote [ The Longest Poem in the World is a continuous stream of real-time tweets that rhyme.

How it works:

-Out of those tweets it only considers those written in proper English and with a reasonable syllable count.
-The CMU Pronouncing Dictionary is used to obtain phonetical translations of the tweet. ]

Finally something worthwhile comes from Twitter
