Ok. Let's say you get suckered into taking your nieces to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

And there you are... bored out of your gourd. WHEW!!! Good thing you picked up a pair of Adult Movie Glasses at the confession counter. A paltry 4 Euros!!

You put them on, and with the new digital technologies, you get to see the annotated version.

"This shot was filmed in Corsica" The screen reads.

A few seconds later, "The cameraman had to use a steadycam for this particular series."

Or perhaps, "This beautiful sunrise was in fact shot in Sardinia."

So instead of being bored, you can read all of the annotations with the new Adult Movie Glasses.

       thanks for the great links!!!! That's why I LOVE the Bakery. I thihk though, with the new emphasis on digitalis in the movies.... This concept might be taken to a much higher level than closed captioning. I'm not sure what though... Any ideas?

       I somehow thought these glasses would render somewhat more... exciting... changes to the movie in question.

       Better title is "pop-up video" glasses or "extra features" glasses.

       //with the new emphasis on digitalis in the movies// in murder mysteries?

       I'm giving this a + because it isn't the 3d porn idea I thought it was going to be.   

       // "pop-up video" glasses or "extra features" glasses.//   

       Well by the ghost of Pythagoras!!! Pop-up Video or Extra Features it is.   

       Quad Erat Demonstrandum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

       Quod Eros Demonstrandum!

       Not at all what I thought it was going to be. Even after the first paragraph. Especially after the 'confession counter'. I'm disappointed.   

       But a bun for the actual idea though.

       Perhaps we could have the best of both worlds... with the Adult Film Glasses we'd could see annotated type with fun film trivia, but we could also see through those traveling pants.

       //You've been shown the square thing ? We ask merely for information ....//   

       Q.E.D. is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase "quod erat demonstrandum" (literally, "that which was to be demonstrated")   

       In deference to MisterQED, I used the more formal, although seldom used "Quad" instead of the gutteral "Quod", which I find personally offensive. I hope you don't mind.

       //Quod Eros Demonstrandum!//

Close, 4whom, but surely "Quod Eris Demonstrandum" would be more appropriate for the 'bakery?

       Nice idea. I would love annotations of this kind: "these two actors did not engage in lewd acts after shooting this scene", etc... It would make many movies much more exciting!

       I'd be happy with the Adult Movie Podcast, timed to the film. These could made for "Pride and Prejudice," or other movies where it's hard to figure out just what the hell is going on.   

       "Okay, here's the deal: A new rich guy has moved into town and this shrewish mom wants to marry one of her daughters to him. She's pretty effing insane. Two of them are kind of hot and smart and two of them are kind of hot but silly and stupid. The ones running around and fighting over the bonnet are the stupid ones. There's one who is kind of not hot and kind of not smart.   

       The rich guy is named Mr. Bingley, and the house he's moving into has a name. The name of his house is Pemberly.   

       The Dad is Mr. Bennet. His wife calls him "Mr. Bennet." He's pretending not to be interested, but he's just messing with them because he's a really sarcastic bastard. He knows he has to marry them off, because they won't inherit any of his land. More about that later ..."

       It might have come in handy for the movie Momento.
