New Web Series 'Swipe Click Bang' Looks At What Happens When Your Hook-Up Doesn't Get The Deal: VIDEO

Swipe

A new web-series from writer/director Michael Sasso explores the perils involved in app-based dating and the tragi-comedy of errors that often ensues when strangers become lovers thanks to the ingenuity of modern technology. In episode four of Swipe Click Bang, titled "Hit It and Quit It," a naive unsuspecting young man gets his Grindr cherry popped and learns that a hook-up is often just a hook-up and nothing more. Unaware of "the deal" implied in many a Grindr encounter, he hilariously tries to turn his hook-up into a date. 

Casey J. Adler and Roscoe Brandon star in this story about a sexual encounter gone awry, AFTER THE JUMP...

First Full Trailer For 'Jurassic World' Debuts: VIDEO

Pratt1

The first full trailer for the hotly anticipated Jurassic World has finally hit. The latest promo reveals that Jurassic World will continue to delve into its franchise's tried and true exploration of mankind's arrogance and lack of respect for nature. The video also delivers a healthy dose of Chris Pratt (one of the sexiest men alive) and Bryce Dallas Howard who proudly proclaims that she and the other Jurassic Park scientists have created a new hybrid dinosaur. A revelation that leaves Pratt gobsmacked: "You just went and made a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea." A more succinct way of saying, "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

Go deeper into the park, AFTER THE JUMP...

Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, and BD Wong opens in theaters June 12 of next year.

Angry Christian Lady Has Meltdown Over The Field Museum's Exhibit On Evolution: VIDEO

Angry

File this under, "Good grief." A woman named Megan Fox--not Mrs. Brian Austin Green--decided to go on a trip to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and check out its "Evolving Earth" exhibit "to audit it for bias." As her video description on YouTube notes, what she found was altogether shocking!

[Megan] found many examples of inconsistencies and the Field Museum's insistence that people support opinion as fact without proof. The Field Museum pushes certain theories as if they are absolute proven law when that is not how the scientific method works. She found enough bias to show that the people who put this exhibit together at the Field Museum pushed an agenda with quasi-religious overtones: the cult of "science" where the "scientists" are more like high priests pushing a religion instead of using the correct scientific method. Aside from having time machines, there is no way these people can be this certain about things they speculate happened millions of years ago before recorded history.

Megan's YouTube channel is devoted to exposing "subversive elements in children's books and teen literature." She proudly proclaims herself as "a homeschooling, Tea Partying, conservative mother of two (with another on the way!) out and about in the suburbs."

Let's hope that Fox's righteously enraged question, "Do you know how complex feet are?", becomes a meme. 

Watch her thorough examination and debunking of the "cult of science," AFTER THE JUMP...

Arizona Lesbian Couple Nelda Majors, Karen Bailey Marry After 57 Years Together: VIDEO

Majors

When they met in their college dorm in Texas in 1957, Nelda Majors and Karen Bailey never dreamed of telling anyone they were gay — let alone getting married. 

In fact, Majors and Bailey didn't come out publicly until they'd been together for 50 years — when they were inadvertently outed by lesbian Houston City Councilwoman Sue Lovell during an inauguration ceremony. 

After almost 57 years together, Majors and Bailey finally celebrated their marriage at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix on Sunday.

Majors and Bailey, who have two daughters, spent most of their lives in Houston, but retired to Arizona.  

They were among the plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit challenging Arizona's marriage bans, which were struck down in October. They also were among the first couples to receive marriage licenses

Majors and Bailey invited the public to the ceremony on Sunday, and hundreds showed up. 

From AZfamiliy.com

"They feel that 56 and a half years together is a long engagement, but today they now have 1,134 federal laws on their side to protect their relationship," the officiant said. … 

"Oh it's much more than what we envisioned," Bailey said. "I don't think we could have ever imagined the people that have helped us, the vendors that have helped us. Our wedding assistant was unbelievable and we could have never imagined that it would be as wonderful as it's been."

Watch the report, along with a 2012 video of the couple talking about their relationship, AFTER THE JUMP ...

NEW MUSIC: Public Service Broadcasting, tigerthief, Live Footage, To Destroy A City, Hollands, New Ambient Music

Public Service Broadcasting - 'Gagarin'

New Music is brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, which covers mostly indie/alternative music as well as electronica, ambient/modern classical, pop and anything really, really good.

Most tracks are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.

Enjoy!

Public Service Broadcasting: “Gagarin”

“Gagarin” is the first track taken from Public Service Broadcasting’s upcoming second album The Race For Space.

A brassy, funk-heavy theme track for Yuri Gagarin, the track reveals a new more playful side to the duo.

With a 6-piece brass section and 5-piece string section in tow, “Gagarin” signals a broadening of Public Service Broadcasting’s sound.

Probably one of the grooviest things you’ve seen this year.

tigerthief: “cinnamon luck”

Tigerthief-cinnaomon-lucktigerthief (possibly from Portland, Oregon and all in lowercase) is a new act choosing to use media to add an element of mystery to their music.

Despite requests for more information, there is little known about tigerthief.

They are probably a duo and “cinnamon luck” was “written, recorded, shot, edited, mixed, mastered, and produced in 24 hours using a Sony TC-500A tape machine, a Canon 7D, two human brains, two cinnamon sticks, and one snow day.”

A mesmerizing, trippy track, you’ll love this if you go all misty-eyed at the thought of early Cocteau Twins.  

Also RIYL if you like contemporary downtempo / shoegaze / gloomy pop acts like Hockeysmith and Casket Girls.
