How to create better audio for your video production | Dan Taylor | TheNextWeb
A fairly detailed article about the audio side of things:
I’m hard pressed to find a decent outline regarding the production of crystal clear audio behind your video. Let’s face it…your production could be all the eye candy you could ever imagine, but if the audio isn’t up to par, who’s going to watch it?

New GlenColor Picture Profiles for the Sony FS100 | Frank Glencairn | Wordpress

Movies blue Exported through Adobe Media Encoder CS5.5 | Adobe Tech Support
It seems there's a problem with some QuickTime clips that can cause the encoder to misinterpret the image and give it a blue cast. This tech note outlines a workaround:
Solution: In Adobe Premiere Pro, apply the Crop effect to each clip that has the blue color cast. Leave the properties of the Crop effect at their default values, so that the effect does nothing to the image.
The blue color cast occurs because the order of the R, G, B, and A channels is being misinterpreted at one stage of processing.

There is no tomorrow... | Martin Prihoda | AtomicSafari.blogspot
Interesting thoughts about enjoying success (though I have to wonder if we all enjoyed where we are today, whether we would accomplish as much tomorrow?)
What I realized is that putting your visions of success and happiness into the future tense really is a negation of your success and happiness right here and now. We are unhappy with how things are so we fantasize about the future and how happy we'll be when we have our new car, house, salary, job, relationship.
