Stock Photo People Are Definitely Human?

Any self-respecting mechanic will have a wealth of tools in his workshop and wouldn’t be caught dead without a wrench or some duct tape. Similarly, any self-respecting individual working with digital media wouldn’t be caught dead without access to stock photos of a man pooping and eating ice cream: or of a fedora-wearing murderer trying […]

Season Finale of Game of Thrones: A Win for Not Being/Having a Dick

It’s been a short but sweet season of Game of Thrones, although short definitely doesn’t apply to the season finale, which clocked in around an hour and twenty minutes. In an episode where calling bluffs and gauging deceptions played a prominent role, honesty and trust acted as necessary foils for the more Machiavellian characteristics that […]

Watch Brightly Colored Words via Hexagon in Beck’s New Music Video “Dear Life”

Beck has released a new song, “Dear Life,” and a colorful, goopy, and geometric music video along with it. It’s a pretty nice take on the lyric video. The art direction was done by Jimmy Turrell, whose site I’m very much enjoying poking around on.

New Joker Movie Tells Origin Story in 1980s Gotham

DC’s whipping out a new IP-concoction to compete with Marvel’s Cinematic Universe: currently, there’s talks between DC and Warner Bros on filming a stand-alone Joker movie that will focus on the origin story of one of America’s favorite villains. My prediction: After a devastating failed audition for RuPaul’s Drag Race, the Joker affirmed that he would commit robberies so heinous in makeup so bold, they would all have to recognize him as the starlet he knew he was born to be.

Episode 6, Season 7 of Game of Thrones: Tedium at Winterfell But Romance between Blood Relatives

There were some problems this episode, which others have discussed already, like here and here. However, I think there was actually quite a lot of important things coded in the episode. First, let’s get the crap out of the way: there are some issues with the narrative arc that took place beyond the wall. Why […]

Capitalize on Being a Hip Nerd and Get Vicarious with D&D

After 3 years and 69 episodes (nice), The Adventure Zone has finished its first campaign. Fans of Dungeons & Dragons already know about the difficult-to-describe sense of community and engagement that comes with playing the game. If you’re a D&D fan, you’ll probably be a fan of this podcast as well. The Adventure Zone does […]

Why Work When You Can Work on Acid?

The worst part about wondering where your keys are when they’re in the hand is the fact that you’ve been let down and maybe betrayed by your own brain, the thing that knows you the best and, confusingly, is you. Of course, you’ve “found” your keys now and can go on about your day, which […]

David Tennant to Terrify Plants in Amazon’s New Good Omens TV Show

Good Omens is about to be TV-ified by Amazon, which is fantastic news. For those of you unfamiliar with the book; shame on you. Good Omens (full title: Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch) is a comedy about the apocalypse and the Antichrist. Our protagonists are the angel Aziraphale, to […]

Episode 5, Season 7 of Game of Thrones: Seriously, Too Bad for Dickon

I had been expecting Dickon to have saved Jaimie from being burned alive, given how much of an introduction Dickon received in the previous episode. However, it was Bron who saved Jaimie from being treated like a marshmallow on the stick of a drunk camp counselor and getting burnt to a crisp. Instead, Dickon got […]

Listen to a Soothing British Voice Discuss Colors with You

CNN’s Colorscope series explores color–that’s it. There’s no real unifying theme, although you could argue that their tagline (“exploring our perception of color and its use across cultures one shade at a time”) gets pretty close. Really, it’s just about color.
