Although questionable in its genesis, the “hands-in-the-air” gesture has become the de facto slogan of outcry against police brutality and racial profiling tactics across the country, with the latest endorsement from NFL athletes sparking a minor controversy in its own.
Parts being greater than their whole.
It’s that time again: the year-end movie montages are here. In the next six weeks we’ll probably see quite a few examples of people cutting together reels of their favorite film footage from the past twelve months, but two early entries in the 2014 movies supercut race are already available. One is a great edit of footage from 25 of the year’s best films, while the other is a long cut that samples from a couple hundred movie trailers.
First up, let’s have a look at David Ehlich’s nicely-cut look back at the year in film. The Little White Lies contributor and new Associate Film Editor at Time Out New York cuts together a montage of what he considers to be the 25 best films of each year, and the 2014 edit has just arrived.
And then, for the completist who doesn’t have much time to spare, there’s the supercut of one shot from each of almost 200 movie trailers released this year.
That comes from Louis “The Sleepy Skunk” Plamondon, who also does this sort of edit each year. His YouTube page is the source of this cut of 197 movie trailers from 2014. The full list of films featured in the video is available at his Tumblr.

It's that time of the year again.
“United States of Pop 2014 (Do What You Wanna Do)” is a mashup by DJ Earworm that combines more than two dozen hit songs from 2014 including “Say Something” by A Great Big World, “Turn Down For What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon, “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift, and more into one seamless track.
DJ Earworm compiled a similar mashup of popular songs from 2013 as well.
This made me chuckle.
In a clip from the 2010 BBC series The Trip, comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon attempt to outdo one another with competing impressions of Michael Caine, topping the iconic actor’s own bad impression of himself.
Michael Caine speaks through his nose, like that. He gets very, very specific. WHEN HE GETS LOUDLY, HE GETS VERY LOUD, INDEED.
Such an impressive visual feat.
Cut has just released the short film “Grandmas Smoking Weed for the First Time.” In the film, three senior women in Seattle, Washington, where recreational marijuana use is legal, were given marijuana to try for the first time. After smoking from a bong and a phallic vaporizer, the women are given snacks and play Cards Against Humanity.
One participant enthusiastically said, “Yeah, I would try it again… if I can get this bag of chips open!”
Prolly #NSFW but since needed sharing.

Last weekend, French art group La Machine (previously) staged a spectacular performance in Beijing with two of the group’s gigantic kinetic sculptures, a spider known as La Princesse, and Long Ma, a fire-breathing horse-dragon. The performance, entitled Long Ma, Spirit of the Dragon Horse, marked the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China. The Atlantic has an excellent photo gallery of the event. Back in September, we posted about the French premiere of Long Ma.

The 2014 Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze (previously), a Halloween event featuring more than 5,000 illuminated pumpkins arranged into sculptures, is going on now at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, through November 16th. Among the highlights of the 2014 Blaze: an illuminated covered bridge, a pumpkin T-Rex, and a headless horseman.
