10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Man Lies About How Hard it Actually is to be a White Dude

10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Man Lies About How Hard it Actually is to be a White Dude

I watched the 10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman the other day, and my first thought was ‘I wish people noticed me when I walked in the streets’. The only people that ever speak to me are the people that want money from me, or help, or whatever it is they can’t get by walking into any job interview they want and nailing it because the director also has a penis and enjoys jokes about women playing golf. In the immortal words of Ben Folds, ‘Y’all don’t know what it’s like Being male, middle-class and white‘.

EX_MACHINA, Another AI Story

EX_MACHINA, Another AI Story

We, as an audience, used to be fine with black and white silent movies. Then Westerns, then about twenty years of buddy-cop movies and baddies armed with turtle necks and uzi submachine guns.

Trailer Party: Hunger Games, The Cultural High, Avengers

Trailer Party: Hunger Games, The Cultural High, Avengers

Sometimes it’s just easier to lump everything together, like when you haven’t seen any of your friends in a while and invite them all to the same place for drinks. That’s what’s happening right here, a trailer party, for your convenience. We’ve got the final trailer for the new Hunger Games, a new teaser for The Avengers: Age of Ultron – which gives us a little idea of what superheroes do with their downtime, and The Cultural High – which looks to be pretty good, and far from your usual pro-weed/drug documentaries which do little more than make those that choose the high road look desperate in the justification of their recreational choices.
