HBO Is Considering Partnering with ISPs to Bundle HBO GO With Internet Service
This is actually way faster than I was expecting this to happen actually. Like, I had 2016 in the “when do cable companies get week enough for HBO to go rogue” betting pool.

The Most Science-Fictional Buildings on Earth, Transported to Other Planets
I was kinda disappointed at first that this wasn’t a list of that surprisingly specific trope of homes that get transported wholesale to other planets/alternate realities but it turns out this art is pretty good too.

Supercut of all the alternate endings to the Animaniacs theme
You suppose they just ended the show when they didn’t have any more of these to really roll through?

The Film Before The Film, A Short Film on the History of Opening Titles
I was going to make a short video about this just for an extra level of meta-commentary but then it turned out I was lazy.

Game Theory, A Brilliant Mashup of ‘Tetris,’ ‘Doctor Who,’ David Bowie, and More
So like anything that has Lana Del Rey in it this is really just okay but I do think it’s super interesting that they feel the need to show themselves “playing” the song live. It seems like about a year abo mashups decided the way they were going to get legitimacy was to create artificial hurdles for mashups in performance so there was actually some performing going on and I find that fascinating because there’s absolutely no reason why they should have to except we’ve decided you’re not actually making music unless you could screw it up but don’t.

Tilda Swinton is sleeping at MoMA
If you want to be depressed read about this on a site with a big comment section and see all the people who think it’s just shameful that MoMA has fallen so far as to let an ACTRESS do performance art there.
