As far as I can tell, the world is divided into two basic groups: Those who are sensing and those who are intuitive. Intuitive people notice big things: Feelings, moods, themes. Sensing people (like me) notice the details, and can often be preoccupied with them. This brings us to "continuity errors" in film and television. Put simply, we've all seen the movie scene where it cuts back and forth between a character, and their position or clothes may be different on a shot-to-shot basis—the background might be different—we know something is amiss. The web is full of them, and there are some remarkable continuity errors in major motion pictures.
Here's how closely I watch for such things: On last night's “Mad Men” (this is NOT a spoiler), during a meeting between Roger Sterling and the man from Lucky Strike, the dandruff on Sterling's suit appeared—then disappeared—then appeared again. Being sensing can be such a burden.
For architecture fans, and for all those who love New York, the New York Times has posted a great package on one of the great architectural curiosities of this City: The initial idea that the Empire State Building would be a docking port for passenger blimps. It didn't quite work out that way, though if it would take some of the volume off of LaGuardia or Kennedy, I'd be all for trying it again.
We're all very excited about the Education Nation gathering here at 30 Rockefeller Plaza—it’s been a great gathering, and a source of great pride to host it. This whole section of the City is abuzz over the gathering, and I hope we can do this again.
We begin a new week tonight, and we hope you can be with us.
