How to setup a Lightbox Gallery on WordPress.com

I was Googling for an answer on how to use a Lightbox overlay for my photo galleries here on my blog. I nearly upgraded my WordPress.com plan to a business one so that I could install a plugin for a JS / Lightbox type thing…

Turns out, all you need to do is enable the carousel, and the background colour, in Settings / Media, simple as that.

Why do books make terrible movies?

I wonder why it’s so hard to make a movie from a book, or, why do so many book to film adaptations suck?

James Patterson is a fantastic writer, Alex Cross is one of my favourite detective / thriller series, but boy was that Alex Cross movie terrible.

Zoo, another James Patterson book, was a terrible TV show. It barely ressembled the book.

Another author I quite like is Stephen King. His book to movie adaptations are pretty ordinary too, sure there were a couple of good ones, IT, The Shining, The Stand, Misery, but for the most part they weren’t remotely as good as the book.

Why is it so hard to make a good movie from a book? Is it the acting choices, is it that books can be way more descriptive, what is the missing ingredient?
