Yauch of the Beastie Boys, where he talks about their feature file, "Awesome;

their Hi8 cameras after they were done with them.

According to The Sun Online
The Simpsons opening scene has been filmed using real people and will be used as
a promo for the show's 17th season.
The scenes which were filmed over 18 months in Britain, closely resemble the
original title scene starting with the view of the town behind the nuclear power
plant and then zooming into the classroom through the window to see Bart writing
"I will not eat things for money" on the chalk board, and ends with the family
squished on the couch (The Sun calls it a
"settee"?) ready to watch the cartoon version
Even though the original article mentions that "The clip
re-enacts the title sequence to a tee ...", there are a few differences. First
off, the most obvious difference, other than it being re-enacted by humans, is
that it's filmed in Britain Other notable differences include Homer
placing the nuclear waste on the table before leaving for work (but then
takes it out of the back of his shirt while driving), to the grocery cost
not being displayed after Maggie is scanned.

Serena is one of the greatest people that I've ever had the privilege of
knowing, and consider a friend. As many of you on here already know, she was the
"life of the party", and was able to make anyone smile and laugh. It's really
sad, when such a great person like her is taken from us in her early years.
Serena, you will truly be missed by all that have been in your presence.

It's been a while since I've submitted a story but this is interesting
The biggest complaint in MMORPGs is 3rd party item selling. People paying real money for in game items or in game money. Sony's solution, cut out the middle man.
They are attempting to create servers where you can buy or sell items without worry of being 'ripped off' through a client run by Sony, for a fee.
