Letterboxing is the practice of transferring film shot in a widescreenaspect ratio to standard-width video formats while preserving the film’s original aspect ratio. The resulting videographic image has mattes (black bars) above and below it; these mattes are part of the image (i.e., of each frame of the video signal). LTBX is the identifying abbreviation for films and images so formatted. The term refers to the shape of a letter box, a slot in a wall or door through which mail is delivered, being rectangular and wider than it is high.
Well, thanks Wikipedia.
I’m so sorry, I wasn’t at all inspired by this prompt. What would you do with it? Let me know…

We recently moved our offices to a new building. This is not news to you if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook and/or Foursquare.
All things considered, this move is a step up from our previous location. Previous location was a temporary swing space in a really old building. That being said, the previous previous building was flagged as marked for demolition in 1985. We moved out of there in 2009. The building was finally demolished in 2010. So who knows when our previous building will be renovated / demolished? Maybe 2057?
In the new freshly renovated space, we have new furniture, including state of the art computer tables in our lab with retractable monitors. It all works from a remote, it’s quite something to see. All the walls are new and not full of holes or Asbestos. Apparently the ceilings are full of Asbestos but it’s totally safe. Cough cough.
It seems the only rooms that have no been renovated are the bathrooms. The first week we moved, the men bathrooms were simply unavailable. The whole week. Now they’re open again, but with hindsight, it was probably better when we couldn’t use them. We have bathrooms without urinals now. This would not be a big deal – I can pee in a stall, really – if people using those bathrooms wouldn’t be complete pigs.
I was going to post pictures, but I won’t. You can thank me in the comments. Seriously.
I’m talking about pee everywhere, including in the bowl. I’m also talking about unflushed crap. Graffitis everywhere. Water all over the counter. Oh how I hope it’s water.
Seriously, are people that dumb?
I dont think Im normal.
I know you feel the same.
I know you feel the same about me.
And Dream Doctor out there to tell me what this means?
Im in Moores (the store, not the actor who played the Saint) trying on earth color shirts.
All night long.
In other news, I’m Sheldon.
