if this worked, you're in! Let's try to update your status
>>> twitter.update_status("I'm using the internet!")
So now that you have the Twitter API working, go through tweepy's API/tutorials to figure out what it can do. Try calling other methods on the twitter class. See what happens. If you're reading this tutorial, you're probably ahead of my on this one
I wrote a Google App Engine service that would poll a twitter account, see if anyone twittered anything with #ps3 or #xbox tags at the account, and re-tweet the request. The blog details some of my attempts to woo an audience such as posting to CL news ( useless ), posting to as a CL ad ( deleted ), posting to meetup ( ignored ).
The whole point of this movie was to wipe out New Jersey. That apparently made everything better.
It seems that this movie suggests that the 'drastic change' to our existing is going to be the lack of electricity / electronics. This will cause food shortages, starvation, riots, etc. How is that any better ?
It's kind of like Training Day except it's not. I thought Training Day was a much better movie. However, the Hugh Laurie plot twist at the very end is a nice touch. It serves as sort of retribution for the predictability of the entire film.
The plot seems fairly typical of the cop movies, and very in line with what David Ayer has been writing for Dark Blue and S.W.A.T
I haven't read a Vonnegut book since 2004-5. I really like this collection of short stories. Vonnegut follows his 8 rules of short stories and I feel it works out great.
I haven't had much exposure to short stories but I like the general concept : works great with a short attention span, readable in a subway ride, and are generally amusing.
What I like most about the format is that making the story 'short' keeps the writer focused on making it 'to the point'. Often times books will come up with a 'point' or a central theme and continue to expand on it throughout the book though various literary deviced. Some books really take to 'beating a dead horse' for a while. Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison is a good example. The short story format, at least in K. Vonnegut's case, does not permit this.
I've traded Resistance 2 for Resident Evil 5. Well worth the trade.
I'm mass murdering zombies like no tomorrow.
Edit 4/7: This game takes the 'zombie' idea a little to far. The goons attacking me are not quite zombies, although they display zombie-like behavior. They are, however, able to engage in tactical combat with high power rifles and chuck spears. CAPCOM : That's not how zombies work !
