A picture of a meal someone was about to eat, for instance, first needed first to be painted. By a painter. Then servants would have to haul the finished work around the town and its environs, soliciting likes. How cumbersome.
Ok, so it’s actually an IKEA advert, but it’s still fun.
Should you stay in a cinema to watch the credit roll of a film all the way to the end, or not? Some people believe it is polite to do so, and see it as a way of acknowledging the work put in by everyone involved in its production.
Fair point. There’s also the chance you might be treated to an Easter egg, or a short post-credit roll scene from the movie, if you stay back.
It’s one thing to lose your job, but to lose your job in a place you cannot possibly leave, is another matter all together. This is the predicament that an explorer of Mars – who was sent to the red planet on a one way, no return trip ever, sort of undertaking – finds himself in. Thus you have the premise for Fired on Mars, a short film by Nick Vokey and Nate Sherman.
People don’t care how their food tastes, as long as it looks amazing when it is photographed, that’s “sight” for you, a recently opened restaurant in New York City, that specialises in the presentation of its dishes, especially for their Instagram loving diners. I’m unable to find the address though. Isn’t that strange?
I’m not sure what drew me to this experiment. That it was being conducted by someone, Taras Kul, calling himself the CrazyRussianHacker, or that it involved throwing dry ice into a swimming pool. It’s something I must try one day.
Photos of people opening pizza boxes, by New York based photographer Chris Gampat. There’s not a sour face to be seen. I’m not sure if this particular aspect of our lives has been documented already, but I’m happy someone did so now.
Imaginary Friend, a short film by Paul Briganti, because sometimes we all need a friend who is entirely of our own creation.
It’s actually a pilot presentation for an upcoming NBC, I think, TV series, but I hope more of the workplace, cheapo dates, is to be featured in the show… it was easily the funniest part of the story so far.
Bacon is one of the most popular topics of discussion on the interwebs, so I generally leave the conversation to others. Not today though, especially when the question is, can you live on bacon alone? I think we all know the answer to that, though I expect some people have given the matter serious thought, at one time or another.
