THE SLAP

Remember that video where all those strangers kissed one another on film for the first time? Could anything be more beautiful than that? Yes. Something could.

My friend Max Landis made a video of strangers slapping each other. It’s by far my favorite thing he’s ever done.  Here’s Max describing what he did:

"I gathered acquaintances, friends both casual and close, paired them randomly, put them in a void, and asked them to hit each other in the face. No one was pressured, and everyone was hit as hard as THEY asked to be hit. To go beyond the parody for the full story of what happened, be sure to watch Point of Impact."

The pilot for LEARNING TOWN, a great new comedy musical web series from @joshacagan & @paulandstorm.  Josh Cagan is, in full disclosure, a friend, but also one of the funniest human beings I know.  He’s one of the minds behind the upcoming JON DAVIS GETS A SEX ROBOT (which will blow your effing mind), so he’s my frontrunner for this year’s king of YouTube comedy.

HALO web movie by Neill Blomkamp.

Abhay Khosla (aka TwistStreet) wrote in response to by BSG post: “There was a Halo webseries— I watched some of it because I thought Fincher had something to do with it (he didn’t). It’s VERY bsg influenced, but with Halo-people. Wasn’t my bag but they’d spent some money on it.”

I THINK this is what you’re talking about, a tie-in to the underrated HALO: ODST (about the ordinary troops, not the super-powered Master Chief dudes). It’s not directed Fincher, but District 9’s Neill Blomkamp.  Who I think was supposed to direct a HALO movie produced by Peter Jackson.  I remember being blown away by this at the time, and wishing that they’d actually gone ahead with a feature.  I’d rather Blomkamp direct the next Star Wars film, or better yet, another original film.
