Out of the Blue

We enjoyed some outdoor time over the weekend in spite of fairly chilly weather. I usually grill on the weekends anyway, and now with the prospect of having to relocate the newly declared nation of Manstovia, I am unlikely to pass up on the chance to char some food. Yesterday's bonus was throwing a fry pan on the grill and firing up some bacon as a garnish... it's really nice to be able to do that and not worry about the mess. And now I have a beautiful little jar of bacon grease in the fridge in case I need to add a dash of healthiness to a future recipe. Mmmmm bacon.

wait a minute....forgive my ignorance...but I just read the article about The Hobbit and I have a question.

People are complaining because he filmed it at a higher frame rate? Can somebody explain to me why filming at a higher quality is a bad thing? I think I am missing something.

People were saying the other day that it looked different - it was so clear it made the sets and props look like sets and props. Referred to it as "a soap opera" look.

I think xkcd had a comic on this a few years back. Basically after years of home videos having a higher fps than actual TV and film productions now when things are smooth we automatically associate it with amateur quality.
