Watch Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ Reimagined In A Surreal Flurry Of Nightmarish Cartoons

Watch Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ Reimagined In A Surreal Flurry Of Nightmarish Cartoons

I love pop music and, for my sins, I kind of love the sound of every Taylor Swift song I hear playing in the background when I’m doing the grocery shopping. Still, I like to imagine that Ms Swift is really the leader of some infernal invasion from the depths of my nightmares, using pop music to lull me into a false sense of security before she pounces and eats my soul.

5FM Offers A World Without Music In Their ‘Without 5′ Commercial

If you’ve been reading Another-Day for the last three years like I’m obliged to, you’ll know that we take a pretty hard line on things we don’t like. Sometimes we do that to the point where it’s easy to forget that we make fun of things we actually haven’t interacted with in three years.

Mad Max’s Unbreakable Furiosa Gets The Meme-Filled Theme She Deserves

Mad Max’s Unbreakable Furiosa Gets The Meme-Filled Theme She Deserves

There are a dozen reasons to watch Mad Max Fury Road but one of the key ones is seeing former Benoni gal Charlize Theron deliver an epic performance as Furiosa. As Another-Day podcaster Andile Mbete put it, “she’s the new John McClane”, and a hero who could speak to the feminist insights of our time while she’s at it.

“We’re All Time Hopping Here, Man” – AfrikaBurn 2015 On Film

“We’re All Time Hopping Here, Man” – AfrikaBurn 2015 On Film

An older hippie told me that the burn creates a time warp. That by gathering a large number of people, building a temporary town and then destroying it, we stretch the very nature of time and space. “We’re all time hopping here, man” he added. “It’s simple quantum physics.” I know that’s impossible, but as I watched him sipping on his Ethiopian coffee, I struggled to wrap my head around my own perception of time in that place.

hahahahahahahahahaha ‘We Are Your Friends’ Looks Like A Really Moving Film About DJs hahahahahahahahahaha

hahahahahahahahahaha ‘We Are Your Friends’ Looks Like A Really Moving Film About DJs hahahahahahahahahaha

“If you’re a DJ, all you need is a laptop, some talent, and one track.” That’s the line at the heart of the trailer for We Are Your Friends, a new movie about life as a DJ, and at least part of it reads like the most honest advice someone could give you about becoming a DJ in 2015.

Witness The Greatest Action Movie You’ve Ever Seen – Our ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ Review

Witness The Greatest Action Movie You’ve Ever Seen – Our ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ Review

“Who broke the world?” That’s the oft-repeated question at the heart of Mad Max Fury Road and it is the rich thematic soul of this incredibly engaging, explosive action opera. Action movies in general seem to be getting dumber with each passing year. Whoever you think is responsible, your average movie thinks it needs to explain itself to you at every turn, offering a passive audience an opportunity to zone out while stuff explodes.

Pro-Weed Activist Lights Up A Joint On SABC Newsroom Like It Ain’t No Thing

Pro-Weed Activist Lights Up A Joint On SABC Newsroom Like It Ain’t No Thing

SABC Newsroom has hosted debates around marijuana legalization and usage in South Africa before (clearly doing wonders for them on YouTube), usually with arguments going in insane circles that are at least entertaining to watch, if a little worrying from a production/journalism standpoint. Of course, even when Newsroom anchors end up basically supporting marijuana usage by default, no one lights up a joint to make their point any clearer.

This Beautiful South African Animated Teaser Needs A Kickstarter ASAP

This Beautiful South African Animated Teaser Needs A Kickstarter ASAP

Blue Forest is a collective who have been toiling away (apparently for years) on a simple but beautiful teaser for their dream animated project. The teaser is for Kariba, which we only get a taste of here but would appear to mix a dash of fantasy myth-making and a little more of the environmental angle that anyone who grew up in the 80s or early 90s would remember from every cartoon ever.

Kahlil Gibran’s ‘The Prophet’ Has Been Adapted By The Co-Director Of ‘The Lion King’

Kahlil Gibran’s ‘The Prophet’ Has Been Adapted By The Co-Director Of ‘The Lion King’

Controversial, poetic, beautiful. Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is many things. Now it’s also an animated film from The Lion King co-director Roger Allers, producer Salma Hayek (she’s just sneaking around, using her Adam Sandler money to do some amazing things, isn’t she?) and some amazing animators.

Justin Timberlake Is A Washed Up Lime

Remember the days when limes were the biggest star at the bar? When every time you ordered a shot of tequila, you demanded someone give you a lime along with it? Those were the days. The days when Rick “Sour” Vane and his boys were on top of the world. Sadly, those days are over.
