When you no longer have anything in common with a friend

I''ve been friends with this person for 10 years, although we''ve always disagreed on cultural things. A good friend, cares about me to an extent, but has made a goal of watching all of the 100 AFI best movies ever and it has exposed a rift that was always there. It has made me wonder if we have anything in common.\ \ The reviews from my friend on movies that I consider sacrosanct and a litmus test for cultural intelligence:\ \ Citizen Kane - immediately bored. not open to discussion. \ \ The Godfather - bored. too slow. (mind you this is one of a pair of movies I consider the best ever produced in this country)\ \ Nashville - Awful. Couldn''t watch it.\ \ Sunrise - "its best to watch all silent movies in fast forward. you get the idea"\ \ The friend claimed to have watched 70% of the list and could not name one movie that was worth commenting on. \ \ This is a dead end, right? To me its like sharing a favorite book with someone and having them say it was pointless, boring and I don''t really care.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
