    Looks like a simple-to-use charting library, based on d3.js, with real-time charts.

    On the plus side, I've just discovered 'NY-LON,' so I'll be able to fill the Rashida Jones gaps between Parks & Rec, so that signals hope.

    The Board are now able to announce the Q2 2014 results: mostly bollocks.

    @moleitau Only this morning I was looking for a copy of their Peel Sessions, but can’t find them as mp3, unless I’ve missed something.

    @whoisdanw I’m in awe of what they achieve. And that everyone takes everything away with them. Compared to Glastonbury, Reading etc… ouch.

    @whoisdanw I’ve no idea how much of beyondblackrock.com is about the logistics, but it suggests that some of it is.

    @chrislunch Yeah, that sounds much more interesting. I’m so glad it’s going well!

    @chrislunch Using it for the first time, it does make me want to go back to freelancing. Very nice. It’s about the only thing though :)

    @tomstuart I can’t remember exactly what we disagreed about, but I look forward to the argument!

    @tomstuart @mattsheret @bowbrick @ntlk Fair enough, just seemed like that’s what that Guardian reviewer wanted.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @ntlk @mattsheret @tomstuart @bowbrick Me too, but then Inland Empire went too far for me and I got bored.

    While chatting about movies, I saw ‘Boyhood’ when I was on holiday and I’m now even more in love with Richard Linklater. Out in UK soon.

    @mattsheret Mmmm, I generally love him. That one was often a bit too perfume-ad-like though. Ben Affleck didn’t help to be honest.

    @tomstuart @bowbrick @ntlk @mattsheret But that’s what we expect from movies, unless we know it’s “art”.In which case we usually don’t go :)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomstuart @bowbrick @ntlk @mattsheret Well… if you expect a coherent 100% explained narrative from it then it will be disappointing.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @ntlk @mattsheret Ha, brilliant, I hadn’t seen that! I don’t think you’d like imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3… which was very close to the edge for me

    @bowbrick @ntlk @mattsheret I like this article about it (a bit spoilery) bfi.org.uk/news-opinion/s…

    @ntlk @mattsheret I see what your question meant now – I think he was trying to do new things conceptually, not just surface aesthetics.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @ntlk @mattsheret Ermm, both?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @mattsheret @ntlk Although, like most “interesting” films, I would probably have got distracted if I’d been at home, not in a cinema.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @mattsheret @ntlk I really thought it was one of the best films I saw last year.Felt like he was trying to create a whole new film language.

    @Zoonie Your British English language pedant :)

    @pkqk @tomstuart It was so good.
