Too often we race through life, doing this and that, watching videos on the Internet, reading pieces of celebrities gossip, recapping television shows, without ever taken a moment to sit back and reflect on it — to sit back and watch those things we just experienced run forever back and forth in a short, continuous loop. That’s what this time is for. GIFS! GIFS, Y’ALL!
Gimme them movie trailers movie trailers movie trailers movie trailers. Gimme them movie trailers movie trailers movie trailers movie trailers. Friday’s babyback movie trailers!
What’s better than a movie that stands on its own in your memory as something you enjoyed as a young person, but not something you’d like to revisit — not out of any ill-will, but out of the hope that you wouldn’t destroy what is a pretty good memory from a certain period in your life with the new realization that the movie SLC Punk wasn’t actually very good? A SEQUEL TO SLC PUNK, CALLED PUNK’S DEAD! From PRNewswire:
“I made SLC PUNK when I was a kid, and accordingly, the story is naive, and, as just a coming of age story, not finished. The characters are facing big questions, 18 years later, as outsiders, Punk rockers… What relevance do they have in a world where all statements have already been made? ” James Merendino says.
The Sequel will be shooting later this year and is being produced independently, like SLC Punk.
“Putting together Independent Movies is a never ending siege, but when it does come together, there is nothing more satisfying.” James Merendino adds. “In the years since I made SLC Punk, it has found a rather large and supportive following who have been very kind to me. So in making a sequel, I feel I owe it to those people to really do it right.”
Wait, where’s the Kickstarter tho? Man, this guy’s been outta the biz so long he doesn’t even know that in order to fund an independent movie you have to take advantage of your fans’ ignorance and nostalgia with price goals and garbage rewards! “Don’t Sell Out. Buy In (To This Kickstarter).” Hahah. Now that we have a perfect tagline for the nonexistent Kickstarter, we can move onto thinking of the perfect tagline for Punk’s Dead, the concept poster of which you can see here. Looks bad! (Heroin Bob?) (But he’s SPOILER ALERT.) That being said, I will 100% see it when it is released. Life is complicated. LET’S GET 2 THE TAGLINES!
If there is one thing I think we can all agree on about princess Merida from the Pixar movie Brave it is that she could be a LOT hotter. Do something with that hair, girl, LOL. You are a princess, take it seriously. The good news is that DIsney is ushering her into their official pantheon of Disney Princesses (that is the good news for sure) and they’ve FINALLY made her hotter. Girl’s dress is NOT torn. Girl’s hair is TAKEN CARE OF. Girl’s boobs ARE bigger. She looks goooooood. Of course, some women are complaining that this makeover was unnecessary and have started an on-line petition to convince Disney to keep Merida the way she was in the movie. WOMEN BE SHOPPIN AND BY SHOPPIN I MEAN STARTIN’ PETITIONS! Ugh, women. Am I right? Is there anything worse than women?! Although I would like to give a big shout out to the people who spent years and years and years of their lives carefully illustrating Merida to be a very specific and unique and believable character, only to have her hair de-kinked and her dress de-torn and her boobs de-smalled in the blink of an eye by the Princess Committee or whoever is running things over there. I am sure it is hard to watch them do that to your work so maybe next time just make her so much hotter in the first place, right? Right. The real question, though, is of course WOULD YOU HIT IT? Let us know in the comments if you would hit it. (Via BoingBoing)

- Do you guys know what a Thundershirt is? I guess it is a little vest you put on your pet to make your pet not so scared during thunderstorms. How does it work? I’m asking you. I have all day to wait for you to explain it to me. Hello? While we wait, here is a cat wearing one, having a wonderful reaction. -FilmDrunk

Goodbye, Community! We don’t know if you’ll be gone forever or just for now, but we do know that if you are gone forever, you ended on a note that wasn’t particularly good after a season that was generally an enjoyable mixed bag! Last night’s episode replayed the main elements of many of Community‘s past favorites in a way that perhaps was meant to come off as a grand could-be-farewell-if-it-needs-to-be and instead came off as a lazy, safe (that is — put forth with the hope of being safe and able to at least please big fans of the show, though, and correct me if I’m wrong, I don’t think it hit even that mark) rehashing of the same old laurels Community has been resting on for about two seasons at this point. There were funny moments, mostly involving Troy forgetting the soda (“must I bear this cross forever?!”), but mostly it felt like a bloodless end to what was once a fun, inventive show. (“We finally found a way to make paintball cool again!” NOOOOO!) Oh well. C’est la vie. The Office was sad. Are Pam and Jim really going to keep each other working in paper, a job neither of them cares about, in Scranton because they love each other too much to let the other one go for a few months? REMEMBER WHEN PAM COULD’VE FINISHED ART SCHOOL?!?! Also, why doesn’t Pam want to move to Philadelphia?! Why isn’t that even a thing they tried to talk about? THEY COULD LIVE IN THE SUBURBS! IT WOULD BE VERY NICE! NICER THAN SCRANTON, NO OFFENSE! THAT CITY IS BROKE! JIM AND PAM, COME OVER AND LET’S TALK ABOUT IT! Maybe they’ll move to the Philadelphia suburbs next week. Also, Jesus, when Jim was like, “[She thinks she's] Not enough? I know it’s against the rules, but I need you guys to do me a favor,” me and the people I was watching with groaned loudly at the TV. UGGGGHHHHHHHH. Yuck. Also, the favor was to cut so many fucking hours of tape into a 2-minute segment showing these two dorks dorking it up together?! “What? I’m sorry, but ABSOLUTELY no way.” That’s what I would say if I were the editor on PBS’s The Office. I enjoyed the episode otherwise! That baby was so GD cute. Dwight and Angela getting together was nice, though it is kind of insane that Angela was never going to tell Dwight that the baby was his unless he asked her out. The hell, Angela? You could’ve been getting child support! Let’s take a jump and then briefly talk about how good other things were.
Do what you need to do to get the job done, for sure, but try to let loose as much as you can. Have fun with it. Stand up on your keyboard and dance on the keys until the right ones get clicked. Will it take a long time, if it even works at all? Sure. Will it break the keyboard? Oh, definitely. Will you get fired? I don’t know, it’s possible! But will you have fun doing your job on a beautiful spring Friday? Probably not, it will likely only be frustrating and strange. Okay! Bye! #FRIDAY (Via ViralViral.)
