Client: How long will it take to produce this case study video?

Me: Four weeks from script and storyboard sign-off.

Client: We only have two weeks to get it done. We can give you an extra two days on top of the two weeks, will that help?

Me: It will help, yes. But only if we get the…

Client: The art looks really distorted in our email newsletter.

Me: That’s weird. I made it exactly to the specs. Do I have the correct specs?

You feel me?

You can’t tell someone you love them and then change your mind. That’s not how it works. Once you love someone, you always love them. Isn’t there a part of you that thinks of him for no reason? They’ll always be in the back of your mind. And no matter how much you love someone else, you’ll always love them too.

Bill Nye Fights Back!

"Let’s say that I am, through my actions, doomed, and that I will go to hell. Even if I am going to hell, that still doesn’t mean the Earth is 6,000 years old. The facts just don’t reconcile.” -Bill Nye

For our September 2014 cover story on education, we asked writer Ryan Bradley to follow Bill Nye around before his public throwdown with creationist Ken Ham.

4 Awesome Superhero Movie Sequels That Will Never Happen

#4. Green Lantern 2: Emerald Twilight

So here’s the pitch: The sequel takes place a few years after Green Lantern. Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) is the universally loved and appreciated champion of the city that he saved from a giant monster in the first movie, kinda like Ghostbusters 2, but in reverse. But then the city gets attacked by another monster … and Jordan fails. The city is wiped out. His girlfriend, his family, his precious bathroom cabinet equipped with all manner of hair products — all gone. That’s when Jordan goes “Wait a minute, I have a magic ring that can do anything! I can bring the city back!” In his grief he tries to do that, but his bosses, the Guardians of the Universe, tell him that it is forbidden. Jordan replies “YOUR FACE is forbidden” (this line is non-negotiable) and murders the Guardians, absorbing all their power and thus the power of every Green Lantern in the galaxy. One of the Guardians manages to escape and gives the last Green Lantern ring to a new guy: John Stewart, or the Green Lantern you actually remember from the Justice League cartoon. You know, the guy so popular that when the Green Lantern movie came out, people wondered why Ryan Reynolds was playing a black guy.
