Cybertainment: 'Tweekly News' debuts
Share with others:
A new weekly Web series -- "Tweekly News" -- looks at pop culture, current events and trends through the lens of Twitter posts.
Hosted and written by comedians Jason and Randy Sklar ("The United Stats of America"), the series features tweets about politics, by and about celebrities and athletes, photos and more. The Sklars' witty and snarky commentary makes this the Twitter equivalent of "The Soup." Segments include "That Was Trending?" and "Tweets to Re-Tweet."
New episodes post on Friday.
Comedian Mark Malkoff was determined to get his money's worth out of his $7.99/month Netflix unlimited movie streaming subscription.
So he set out to watch as many movies as he could in one month, and documented the experience in a video about his movie watching marathon that's posted on My Damn Channel.
His goal was to watch 250 movies, and he ended up with a grand total of 252. That works out to 3.2 cents a film.
The first week, he stayed in his apartment for 155 hours in a row, and ended up gaining six pounds by the end of the month. He watched some films on the go on an iPad or iPhone.
Some sessions were organized by theme -- all sci-fi, horror or sports movies, or all Razzie award winners.
In one segment, he gets actor Andrew McCarthy to do an in-person commentary on "St. Elmo's Fire."
The entire list, which includes "Chinatown," "A Clockwork Orange," "Clerks" and both the original and the re-make of "True Grit," is posted on My Damn Channel.
Almost everyone has come across something -- in their attic or garage, in the bottom of a junk drawer, or outdoors -- that they just can't identify.
Reckon That Is is a website where people are invited to upload photos of these kinds of everyday mysteries -- including unusual insects, strange old objects and outdated electronic components. People who can identify them can click the comment button and post the answer.
The result is a series of blog posts with photos and information that curious and inquisitive Web surfers will find amusing.
