Greetings reader. How’s your week going? Has it been a funny week? Was it “ha ha” funny or “weird numbness in my elbow” funny? Either way, this week’s digest should increase your “ha ha” quotient and you should always keep an eye on your elbow. Enjoy.
1. Oh Damn
This is a wonderful short film from Matt Ingebretson and Pat Bishop, which won some fancy looking awards over in the States. The premise is simple: a man is on his way out to the pictures, but stops first to light up. It even features an appearance from a Christopher Guest alumnus.
2. Dreamgun Film Reads: Titanic
The folks of Dreamgun are putting on another live show this weekend. Get down to Bello Bar this Saturday at 7pm for their interpretation of James Cameron’s Titanic – the Billy Zane star vehicle that could have been. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: you absolutely don’t want to miss this show.
3. Dan Harmon Talks at Google
Dan Harmon, creator of Community and co-creator of Rick and Morty, recently gave this talk to staff at Google. He discusses how he works, his shows (including the finally-now-airing third season of his animated comedy), his podcast and many, many tangents shooting off from those things.
4. Eats Like a Duck
You’ve seen The Simpsons. The Bartman. Boo-urns. That Milhouse guy. But have you ever thought, “there’s probably been some tasty food in twenty eight seasons of animated comedy”? Well, somebody did.
Eats Like a Duck features recipes and reviews of foods lifted right from the television show. Homer’s Patented Space-Age Out of this Worlds Moon Waffles really do destroy waffle irons. Nachos Flanders Style are actually worse than you’d imagine. The website even features recipes from Futurama, such as the truck stop toilet sandwich.
Before I Go…
Cara Delevingne has released a song in conjunction with her new film Valerian. The music video features footage from the movie and, while the song doesn’t describe the plot of the movie or the credentials of its protagonist, it feels like a throwback to 90s movie tie-in tracks.
So here’s Gilmore Guys co-host Demi Adejuyigbe with his imagined version of Will Smith’s rap over the credits of Academy Award nominee Arrival.
