I am fine with where I am now

Those posters look kinda similar.

Who directed Nerve?

Oh. The directors of Catfish.

Wait, the directors of Nerve also directed Viral?

Huh. They directed two films being released in the same week — and both star Machine Gun Kelly.


Jon: Idea: Snapchat Answers to Stupid Questions.

Rory: Is Al Jaffee still alive?
Jon: Yup.
Jon: A surprising number of Mad's "usual gang of idiots" from our youth are still alive.
Jon: It's possible they could outlive Mad.


Idea: A colourblind Instagram filter. How someone who is colourblind sees the image.

Acknowledge Lucifer

Jon: That's his actual IMDb bio?!
Rory: His name is misspelled right below the correct spelling of his name – amazing.


This Wednesday July 20th at 1pm EST Golden Globe nominated actress Evangeline Lilly (Lost, The Hobbit, Ant-Man), popular punk band Anti-Flag frontman Justin Sane, Jonny 5 of the Denver-based hip-hop outfit Flobots, and famed political pollster Dr. Stanley Greenberg, will hold a press conference via phone for the kick-off of the nationwide Rock Against the TPP tour, a series of large-scale concerts, teach-ins, and protests mobilizing to raise awareness about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement.

Rory: Paul Ryan is like an American Gladiator.
Rory: Romney/Ryan mop the floor with Obama/Biden.

Jon: Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin – who wins?
Rory: I think Biden and McCain are a wash.
Rory: McCain literally can't raise his arms above his shoulders.
Jon: But his partner is a self-proclaimed "mama grizzly."
Rory: I give Obama/Biden the edge.

Jon: Bush/Cheney vs. Gore/Lieberman – who wins?
Rory: Oof. Tough one.
Rory: Gore is the strongest of the four, but Lieberman is by far the weakest.
Rory: I give it to Bush/Cheney. Dirty tricks from Cheney.

Jon: Trump/Pence vs. Clinton/TBA vs. Cruz/Fiorina in a tables, ladders, and chairs match.

The guy changes his mind, says, 'What if I change my offer to a dollar instead?' Woman is aghast. 'What kind of woman do you think I am?' Guy says, 'We already figured that out.

The Road Movie: A Look at Russia From Dash Cam Footage

A crazed man clinging to the front hood of a car as it speeds along a road is among the more normal images from a new film that explores Russian society as seen through the prism of dashboard cameras.

Hardcore Henry but with dash cams?

The Road Movie is a feature-length documentary.

Oh.

The film, which places the viewer in the position of the anonymous drivers behind the dash-cam clips, is made of dozens of short sequences of unalloyed life in Russia.

Collected from YouTube and other websites, the documentary explores episodes that range from the sublime to the ridiculous, and all stops in between.

Never mind…


Now we're talking.

Before it became a 68-minute feature, it was uploaded in 10-second clips to lead actress Andrea Russett's Snapchat account.

Blaine and Antoine: 408 snaps in a zzz formation.

So:

Dash Cam[!]: Invasion (2005)
Surveillance Cameras: Look (2007)
Skype: Unfriended (2014)
Snapchat: Sickhouse (2016)
