When it comes to writing news, I always look for an interesting, unique angle that will make my stories stand by themselves, even when there are other writers covering the same story. I try to make my writing as accessible as possible, so that anyone can understand my stories, from those who are experts, to those who don't know anything about entertainment. I've collected a selection of my favourite news stories and posted them here.
"Have you ever been watching your favourite Netflix series when, before you know it, you've fallen asleep and missed a couple episodes? Then you should probably get socks that pause your show when you fall asleep.
Unfortunately, you can't just buy special Netflix-pausing socks. Instead, Netflix posted a page that shows you how to make socks that will detect when you've fallen asleep and pause whatever you're watching. The instructions require a knowledge of knitting, a grasp on electronics and microcontroller programming, and experience with a soldering iron."
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens this week, and with it comes the respective Disney Infinity play set. Oscar Isaac, who's starring in the new movie as X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron, provided his voice to Disney's toys-to-life game. But it wasn't the first time he's done voiceover work for a game.
Although he never appeared in the finished product, Isaac claims in an interview with Birth.Movies.Death that he had been "fired" from work on Dante's Inferno, which was developed by Visceral Games and published by EA."
"Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson had three and a half years to prepare his telling of Tolkien's classic trilogy, but he didn't have the same luxury when he replaced Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro on The Hobbit.
The behind-the-scenes revelation in the Battle of the Five Armies DVD was posted to YouTube by Joshalots. In the video (which we assume will be taken down soon), Jackson and others who worked on the movies talk about the stark difference in prep time between The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The director took over for del Toro in 2010 and according to the video said that he spent much of his time on The Hobbit feeling like he wasn't on top of it."
