This Friday’s Gig At The Bohemian Is The Most Important Party This Month

This Friday’s Gig At The Bohemian Is The Most Important Party This Month

The last few years’ worth of partying in Jo’burg have offered a vast transformation in the way things worked around this city. It used to be that events and parties spread out across the entire metropolis, from the Best Rand to the East, from one side of the city to another, from old forgotten buildings to every shitty live music venue Melville had to offer.

“A Gigabyte Of RAM Should Do The Trick” – A Supercut Of Hacking Scenes In 90s Movies

“A Gigabyte Of RAM Should Do The Trick” – A Supercut Of Hacking Scenes In 90s Movies

Sitting at a computer typing on a keyboard all day is an incredibly difficult thing to illustrate visually to people. And since film is a visual medium well, movies have made up all kinds of absurd ways to represent hacking. This was especially prevalent in 90s movies that fixated on how hacking was some kind of futuristic means of gaining access to information, and the right couple of keystrokes could literally alter the world in some fundamental way.

Finally, A Brief And Intriguing ‘Jurassic World’ Teaser

Everything old is new again. And in the case of beloved movie-slash-sorta ok franchise Jurassic Park, it’s not even in the form of a reboot. Jurassic World is the upcoming sequel to the Steven Spielberg directed films (and one Joe Johnston joint) about a theme park full of dinosaur clones (and their frog DNA).

Watch Grandmas Smoke Weed For The First Time

Watch Grandmas Smoke Weed For The First Time

It seemed like appropriate timing. Cut Video produced a short video in which three grandmas smoke pot together, allegedly for the first time. Imagine a Seth Rogen movie where him, James Franco and Jonah Hill are all old ladies. There’s really not much more we can say about it.

Addiction Is A Lonely Bird And His Golden Nuggets – A Short Animation By Andreas Hykade

Human beings want. It doesn’t really matter what we want but we know that we want it, we want it now and we want it a lot. We’d also prefer it if next time it was just as good as last time. Sometime it isn’t. Addiction has been a fairly constant concern of modern society.

Watch Ronan And Star Lord Dance Off In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Outtake

Watch Ronan And Star Lord Dance Off In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Outtake

You guys, Jordan hates Guardians of the Galaxy. There, I said. I feel better now. The two of us have talked it over a few times and, the thing is, I totally understand why he feels the way he does about it. I found it incredibly entertaining and a lot of fun, but at the same time it does rely on formula a lot and has a lot of the same problems as previous Marvel movies.

Sacha Goldberger Rewinds Cosplaying To The Renaissance Period [Aht]

Cosplayers can get pretty elaborate, inventive and realistic with their costumes, but French photographer Sacha Goldberger took cosplaying to another level with his Renaissance inspired exhibition at Grand Palais in Paris. These aren’t digital paintings, but rather the result of custom made outfits, fantastic make-up and some Photoshop touch ups. No, really, that’s not actually Christopher Reeve.

Oh, Benedict Cumberbatch, you’re all over the TV now. With just 60 seconds on the clock during an interview about his upcoming film The Imitation Game, Cumberbatch was asked by MTV to play a different kind of imitation game. The actor’s well known for his impersonations so they got him to do a handful completely unrehearsed.

Why Stop There? Here’s A Trailer For ‘Gotham’ Prequel ‘Gotham Begins’… ‘Origins’

Why Stop There? Here’s A Trailer For ‘Gotham’ Prequel ‘Gotham Begins’… ‘Origins’

Although it’s basically a Batman TV show without any Batman in it, Gotham isn’t having a rough time of it in the ratings. Predictably, people with bad taste everywhere love it. That’s because human beings love nothing more than knowing the exact flavor of the poison we’re about to ingest. It makes us feel safer.

How Many Countries Are There In Africa? [Video]

How Many Countries Are There In Africa? [Video]

I heard a story recently of foreign volunteer workers blissfully walking through a street after providing aid work in a rural community somewhere in South Africa. “It’s so good to finally put a face on poverty,” the workers apparently said. Because when we think of poverty, volunteer aid workers, what we really need is more people thinking it’s a characteristic of the African people alone.
