This Homer Simpson & Yellow Cube Twitter Thread is Mindblowing

We love Twitter threads the more bizarre the better and this one involving Homer Simpson and an interdimensional yellow cube is no exception.

The conspiracy theory suggests that Simpsons creator Matt Groening has a knack of predicting the future on his cartoon show and previous evidence suggests that it’s more than just a coincidence. If Groening can accurately predict the future then how does he do it? This batshit, crazy conspiracy theory twitter thread is here to help.

Enjoy.

Trailer For New Mothman Documentary Will Give You Chills.

We’re somewhat obsessed with the supernatural phenomena known as The Mothman. Ever since we watched the 2001 cult classic The Mothman Prophecies, starring Richard Gere, our interest in the illusive winged man of West Virginia has been constant.

Thankfully we now have even more detail to pour over with the imminent release of the documentary The Mothman Legacy: West Virginia Hills a direct sequel to the excellent 2017 documentary The Mothman Of Point Pleasant.

The documentary charts the increase in Mothman sightings around the West Virginia Hills, interviewing locals who recount their experiences and provide a wealth of new information expanding on the creature’s mythology.

New Playstation 5 Coming End Of 2020.

Rejoice Sony fanboys, as your endless nights of enduring the continual whirring sound of an overheated PS4 fan are almost over.

Sony this week officially announced that the new PS5 will be released at the end of next year and it will feature a whole range of new gubbins, including dramatic alterations to the controller(s). Below is the full press release published by President and CEO of Sony Jim Ryan:

Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring. Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.

These updates may not be a huge surprise, but we wanted to confirm them for our PlayStation fans, as we start to reveal additional details about our vision for the next generation. WIRED magazine covered these updates and more in a story that posted this morning.

The “more” refers to something I’m quite excited about – a preview of the new controller that will ship with PlayStation 5. One of our goals with the next generation is to deepen the feeling of immersion when you play games, and we had the opportunity with our new controller to reimagine how the sense of touch can add to that immersion.

To that end, there are two key innovations with the PlayStation 5’s new controller. First, we’re adopting haptic feedback to replace the “rumble” technology found in controllers since the 5th generation of consoles. With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field. You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.

The second innovation is something we call adaptive triggers, which have been incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2). Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain. In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions. Game creators have started to receive early versions of the new controller, and we can’t wait to see where their imagination goes with these new features at their disposal.

While there’s much more to share about PlayStation 5 in the year ahead, we have plenty of blockbuster experiences coming your way on PS4, including Death Stranding, The Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima. I’d like to thank all PlayStation fans for continuing the journey with us, as we embark on the future of games.

 

 

Sam Mendes’ War Movie 1917 Looks Incredible.

Here’s the latest trailer for the one continuous shot World War I movie 1917.

Director Sam Mendes, (Skyfall, American Beauty), apparently used a series of extra long takes to give the viewer the impression the movie is one continuous shot. The plot of 1917 rattles along like so:

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.

1917 is scheduled for release on January 10, 2020.

Trailer For Eco Documentary Anthropocene Is Incredible

As middle-aged white men with high blood pressure and cholesterol berate, imitate and ridicule a 16 year-old girl, whose only crime is to care about the welfare of the planet we all live on, scientific research is suggesting we all need to act fast if we have any hope of providing a future for our grand- kids.

If you’re still in some doubt about the validity of the climate change claims then gander awhile at this spectacular yet grim looking trailer for the new eco-documentary Anthropocene – The Human Epoch. It’s the third instalment of a trilogy of films which looks at the impact of humanity on natural development.

If anything, thanks to it’s wide sweeping, glorious shots, it gives the audience a sense of scale of the industrial impact the human race is inflicting on it’s habitat.
