British car insurance company uses algorithm to set car insurance rates based on social media posts. And not on things like Does he post a lot of pictures of getting drunk, but based on factors like Does he often use “always” or “never” instead of “maybe”, because
only a Sith deals in absolutes
Saturday’s new Ash vs. Evil Dead was more comedy than horror but I still found the tension about Baal, masquerading using the skin of no-one knew which person in the room, effective enough.
How much would you pay for an old television listings magazine?
Today’s Guardian has an Edward Gorey style vision of the world to come. US Game designer Mike Selinker gathered 26 comic illustrators for his A-Z of Trump. Unbiased it isn’t, but very funny it is. A limited run of The Ghastlytrump Tinies is also available for purchase
So two weeks ago, Marvel got into a bit of hot water when J. Scott Campbell’s variant cover to Invincible Iron Man #1 was revealed and it looked like this:
For many of you, day one is in the bag, others of you, it will be coming to a close.
I know it’s the day after and they’ve never done one before, but do you think Agents of Shield will do a Halloween episode tonight? In other news, Antipodes should be back to doing these threads after the break. Welcome to the Agents of Shield season 4 episode 6 “The Good Samaritan” Spoilerific reaction thread where…
Darkness, temporal and probably temporary lack of parents! Welcome to the reaction Thread for tonight’s Flash episode. I will be joining you once I get home. Though I will probably be a bit drunk. See you on the other side!
The Walking Dead, AMCs cash cow of a franchise, was met with a lot of criticism over the summer as the showrunners decided to end the previous season on a cliffhanger as to the death of a “major” character to be revealed at the start of season 7, later revealed to have been the two characters many guessed it would be…
UK movie channel Film 4 often rounds out their schedule with short productions by up-and-coming film makers. Last night was no exception, with a Halloween selection of five minute treats. The last of the batch, Prano Bailey-Bond’s Shortcut, kind of jumped out. I know it was 3am, but did they really do that on…
Because her father is Kevin Smith and he will be directing said episode and they have a track record together in something called Yoga Hosers which I’m not really sure what that means.
I know y’all like video game teaser trailers.
Faith and fear both demand you believe in something you cannot see. You choose! Bob Proctor
At least on the internet. Which kinda begs the question why the internet took so long to make that happen? (also - what about Jesus memes???)
So. Anyone want to try and argue that The Walking Dead isn’t getting campy now? Last night’s new episode, “The Well”, took a drastic shift in tone from the premiere episode of this season to focus on Carol and Morgan and their introduction to a settlement called The Kingdom and its extravagant ruler, King Ezekiel. It…
I’ve been a fan of Montreal-based duo Elsiane since I saw them give Delerium a serious run for their money at a concert in 2008. Happy to say that they’re back with their first album in quite a few years, titled Mechanics Of Emotion. You can listen to it at the link in this tweet:
There have been precious few leaks from the set of Ridley Scott’s Alien Covenant, beyond the odd photo or a throwaway revelation from one of the cast members. But when you’re dealing with a filmmaker as detail-obsessed as Scott, sometimes the smallest thing will pay big dividends. Take this picture of Covenant’s…
Good evening friends. It’s time for more wacky adventures in Gotham City, minus the insane rich man in tights and a cowl. Just an insane cop turned bounty hunter, and a crime lord mayor. Leave your reactions in the comments, and as always i’ll drop additional recaps later and my takes when I am done stealing them.
Woohoo! The clock changed so I think I’m late. Never mind that. Go discuss, you lovely people. The adventures of Kara have begun.
