Just to be clear- i did not intend my comment to be snarky or sarcastic. They really do grow some delicious melons in the Hermiston area- a true Oregon delicacy. Nice folks out there too.
Tony also forgot to mention that Hermiston produces some damn fine melons!
since most of you probably moved here in the last couple of years, I'll remind everyone that, with the exception of a few small pockets, everything east of NW 23rd avenue used to be poor/working class neighborhoods.
what the Light Bulb Lady said.
I am still scratching my head as to why there is so little discussion about making Joshua Seater (the guy who did the pee-job) responsible for the expenses.
I am surprised that there is not more uproar aimed at the drunk guy who did the peeing. Apparently he is some 'ultimate fighting' dude from Molalla. I can only imagine he was laughing to himself as he peed in Portland's water (at least right up until the time the security guard nabbed him)
hi graham, here is your answer, sort of.
while the goal of both digital and analog projection is to fool the eye into thinking that a series of still images is actually a smoothly moving single image, the technical ways in which the two formats go about doing so is quite different. film relies on a phenomena known as 'persistence of vision' - pioneered by our old friend Eadweard Muybridge. with film you are literally seeing a series of flashing still images that are each followed by a brief moment of complete darkness. our eyeballs retain the image just long enough so that during that moment of blackness the projector can advance the film one more frame and then quickly flash it before our retention of the previous image fades. if you had bionic eyes or could slow down time you would see that a movie theater's screen is actually dark for half of the entire film projection.
digital projection relies on elements known as scan and field phasing (or something like that) - where as each image is literally pushed off the screen by the next. there is never any 'dark' moments on the screen, and in fact if you had bionic eyes you could actually see weird mutant half frame images throughout the showing. actually, you don't really have to have bionic eyes to see it, you just have to be sensitive to it or know what you are looking for.
i am not here to say that film projection is better or worse than digital, but the physical interaction each has with your eyeball and they way the images get to your brain is very different. when i see top notch digital projection, my first impression is usually 'wow' but then by the end of the movie i often find my eyeballs feeling strained and i feel like i am getting a headache. and it seems like a lot of people are in that boat.
