    Lemon Lime & Cucumber Sprite Coming to the UK

    There’s a magnificent Jewish-style deli near my apartment, and I often go there for a sandwich when the mood strikes. One aspect of the deli experience I have not yet tried is cucumber soda, specifically Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray, which is considered by purists to be the perfect accompaniment to a pastrami sandwich. I might be […]

    ‘Onnanocos x Micro Drone': Short One-Take Film Shot by a Drone (Video)

    Most footage I’ve seen collected by drone cameras has that distinct “this is a drone camera” feeling. But there’s a new short film that was shot in one take with a micro-drone that actually looks pretty good, it out-Steadicams Steadicam in many ways. It’s called Onnanocos x Micro Drone.

    ‘Yo! MTV Raps’ is Coming Back in June

    2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the classic MTV series Yo! MTV Raps. Since MTV is still around, and rapping is still around, and shouting “yo!” is (nominally) still around, you’d have to be completely nuts to think a revival of the show isn’t on the way.

    Mobile gaming is making its way to dreaded Castlevania and Count Dracula sometime in the near future. It’s called Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, an upcoming mobile game coming to iOS devices sometime soon.

    KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop Campaign

    There’s something about the idea of fried chicken visually resembling explosive combustion that isn’t exactly appetizing to me, personally. But far be it for me to second-guess the latest ad campaign from KFC and advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather Hong Kong, especially since this KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop campaign is probably one of the least bizarre […]
