Ep. 1197: Where we are who we said we were Video
Bonus footage from the April Fools Day episode.
Once again this year, we've had it with April Fool's jokes. Except for one. You'll see. If you're more tired of iPad than you are of April Fool's, skip the first half of the show where we recap other people's reviews since Apple refuses to give us an iPad early. Also, we debunk Microsoft's claims that Chrome is fundamentally insecure, which almost ought to be a joke.
Today's Lil' Internet Superstar gets neck deep in the murky waters of the deep south in search of the great white bellied catfish. It's a sport called noodlin', and it's not for the faint of heart...or breath.
Today we're calling out the latest offender in social media fails: couples Facebook pages and joint Instagram profiles. Stop that, it's making everyone else feel extra lonely.
In this unique cinematic experiment from acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh, an unlikely love triangle is born at a doll factory in a small midwestern town that has fallen on hard times. Lonely and isolated, longtime employees Martha and Kyle have become friends by default in spite of their drastic age difference, but their dynamic is upset by the arrival of a new worker: young, attractive, single mother Rose. As Martha grows increasingly wary about Rose's dubious character, she discovers Kyle and Rose developing a relationship of their own. A murder is committed, an investigation begins, one that will call into question our established assumptions about these characters and life in their small town. Featuring a cast of nonprofessional actors from the Ohio location, Soderbergh brings this tragic story of characters striving to establish and maintain meaningful connections to life with startling realism. "Bubble" is the first of six films Steven Soderbergh is directing for HDNet Films that will be shot in high-definition and released simultaneously in theaters, on DVD, and on cable television. Executive producers Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban are experimenting with this day-and-date model utilizing various media properties they own, with a goal of giving consumers a choice of how, when, and where they wish to see a movie.
