The usual interesting links from the depths of ye olde internets:
- Box Office Game – Have you ever listened to the Blank Check with Griffin and David podcast and been frustrated when they play the box office game because you know the answer and they’re struggling? Prepare to be humbled. One game posted a day, very wordle-like…
- Framed – Ah yes, the Wordle derivatives continue to appear, this is a fun one based on movie screenshots.
- THR’s Most Powerful People in Hollywood – James Cameron – Dude interviews like a boss:
IF YOU COULD CONTROL ONE PIECE OF IP, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
“I generate my own stuff, so I’m not really interested in IP.”
BEST OR WORST THING ABOUT HOLLYWOOD’S MERGER MANIA
“As long as people pay the bills and when I show up to work on a Monday morning, they haven’t closed down my production, I could give a shit.”
LAST BIG SPLURGE
“Building a sub.”
YOU FIND BOB IGER’S IPHONE. WHICH CONTACT DO YOU CALL?
“I can call anybody I want. I don’t need Bob Iger’s cell phone.”
- Acting is Easy – Timothy Olyphant on method acting, very funny
- Jomboy Will Smith Slap Breakdown – I’m posting this not so much for the content (it’s a solid enough breakdown of events) but because I find it interesting just how quickly he got this video up. The Slap happened and this video was up less than an hour later. The only other thing I have to say about this is that I’m a little annoyed that “The Slap” will now be associated with Will Smith and Chris Rock rather than the cutting NBC drama about a guy who slapped a kid at a suburban cookout, an event that rocked a community and caused apocalyptic fallout. Also, come on, “The Pursuit of Slappiness” was right there for the taking.
- Brickbat: Candygram – Guy installs a giant novelty shark crashing into his roof as some sort of political statement. Neighbors and community government asks him to take it down, but he doesn’t… so they switch tactics and have it declared a “protected landmark” and now it would be illegal for him to take it down.
- Bizarro World – Fun little story about a reporter who accidentally discovers that his wife is the word’s greatest Tetris player.
That’s all for now…
