So with the introduction of Billy's Daily Weekly Reader this week, it pushes me down to second best Orlando Weekly newsgatherer. Thanks a lot, Billy. But at least I'm still in the top 2. Aw yeah.
Videos, short films, etc:
-So, I'm sure most of you have seen the interactive video for Bob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone, but I just wanted to point out that if you tune into the sports channel it somehow magically turns into a Wes Anderson video. Seriously. Try it. (Dylan)
-Check out this short from Jonas Cuaron which shows the other side of Sandra Bullock's desperate radio conversation in Gravity. (THR)
-Behind the scenes of how Goldiblox made this pretty awesome Rube Goldberg commercial. (Wired)
-If Lana Del Rey, strippers and ice cream are your thing you might want to watch the trailer for the "Lynchian" short film, Tropico, she has coming out. I'm not big on LDR or strippers but I do like me some ice cream. (Rolling Stone)
News, links, etc:
-Jennifer Lawrence on shitting her pants and talking about the Kardashians, which, when we get down to it, is essentially the same thing. (The Wrap)
-James Gandolfini's final trip. (GQ)
-Carey Elwes is writing a book about The Princess Bride. How could it not be great? (LA Times)
-So, Yoda was almost played by a monkey? Boy, George Lucas has had some really awful ideas float through that bearded brain of his. (Guardian)
-Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's daughter Sosie will be Miss Golden Globes at the next ceremony. If you count awards shows in 5 Degrees of Kevin Bacon, this makes it pretty easy. (Yahoo)
-Sarah Silverman: Psychiatric Help. 5¢. (Daily Beast)
-These Criterion Collection covers brought to life as Vines are really cool. (The Dissolve)
-Terry Gilliam is trying to relaunch The Man Who Killed Don Quixote but I get the feeling that the documentary about his first attempt will be the best thing that'll ever happen with the story. (@DItzikoff)
-Are we finally getting an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman? (/Film)
-The first full trailer for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac is quite shocking and NWS indeed. (AV Club)
