Box Office Victory

This amused me.

A pair of filmmakers filmed a 29 minute horror movie on Zoom (and let’s be honest — all Zoom interactions are horror stories), then rented a cinema, bought every seat and then screened the film for just the two of them.

With the Coronavirus pandemic in full swing, nothing else was being screened so this zero-budget film topped the US box office.

The film is called Unsubscribe and can be rented on Vimeo.

Forty-Two

WordPress informs me that today is my forty-second day of continuous posting. Yes, I really have managed to spout some sort of drivel every single day for forty-two days (including today).

As everyone should know, Forty-Two is the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything. This is doubly appropriate for me because, not only am I full of answers, but I also have no idea what any of the questions are.

There are many ways of celebrating an entirely arbitrary achievement such as this, but I intend to go find an olive so that I can finally mix myself a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.

Great Balls

Funk Turkey is a pseudonym and stage name of Arkansas parody/comedy musician and producer Kirt Connor who wrote a bot.

By sucking up all of the lyrics from actual AC/DC songs and using a Markov Chain to semi-randomly generate a “new” song based on the band’s existing lyrics.

And then he recorded it.
