POTD: Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Hateful Eight’ Assemble for First Behind-the-Scenes Photos

by Angie Han

The Hateful Eight poster header

Quentin Tarantino‘s next may be called The Hateful Eight, but the eight stars in it aren’t hateful at all. In fact, they’re downright great. And now they’ve all assembled as the Western prepares to begin shooting in Colorado next month. Check out the first Hateful Eight behind the scenes photos after the jump.

Samuel L. Jackson posted the Hateful Eight behind the scenes photos.

The Hateful Eight pics don’t tell us anything about the movie we don’t already know, since the full cast was announced a few weeks back. Still, it’s great to see them all together. Especially when we remember that at the start of this year, it looked like this film might never happen.

Here’s a cast list, if you’re having trouble identifying them:

  • Samuel L. Jackson (black hat)
  • Bruce Dern (red hat)
  • Jennifer Jason Leigh (black jacket)
  • Quentin Tarantino (red plaid shirt)
  • Demian Bichir (seated in brown jacket)
  • Kurt Russell (seated in grey t-shirt)
  • Walton Goggins (blue v-neck)
  • Michael Madsen (black vest)
  • Tim Roth (seated in black shirt)

Channing Tatum also stars, but isn’t in these photos. Character descriptions can be found in the synopsis below. The Hateful Eight does not yet have a release date, but it’s expected out sometime around fall 2015.

In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

IKEA has created a desk that converts from sitting to standing via a simple button

by Adam Epstein
Ikea convertible desk

By now, everyone probably knows that sitting all day at your desk can pose some health risks. And so the standing desk craze was born—promising hundreds of calories burned per day, and all kinds of miracle cures to boot.

With specialized standing desks costing well over $1,000, it’s not surprising that people soon figured out a hack to make a version on the cheap, using a table and a shelf from the Swedish furniture behemoth IKEA to cobble together a sturdy upright setup for around $30.

But even the most fervent standing desk proponents have pointed out that standing stationary all day, without sitting breaks, can cause some unpleasant side effects—meaning a standing-only desk isn’t ideal.

To address that problem, IKEA is now selling a desk designed to seamlessly switch between sitting and standing. The Bekant desk—which runs from $149 for its basic model to $916 for its “workstation”—offers an affordable option to people who want to avoid sitting all day but also don’t have the stamina or emotional resolve to emulate the Queen’s Guard at their desks.

Watch the Bekant in action:

There are a number of other standing desks on the market, but most are much more expensive than the Bekant or require manual adjustment. All Bekant models are adjustable between 25 5/8″ and 33 1/2″, which should comfortably fit most human beings.

Alva Noe: Don't Worry About the Singularity, We Can't Even Copy an Amoeba

by samzenpus
An anonymous reader writes "Writer and professor of philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, Alva Noe, isn't worried that we will soon be under the rule of shiny metal overlords. He says that currently we can't produce "...machines that exhibit the agency and awareness of an amoeba." He writes at NPR: "One reason I'm not worried about the possibility that we will soon make machines that are smarter than us, is that we haven't managed to make machines until now that are smart at all. Artificial intelligence isn't synthetic intelligence: It's pseudo-intelligence. This really ought to be obvious. Clocks may keep time, but they don't know what time it is. And strictly speaking, it is we who use them to tell time. But the same is true of Watson, the IBM supercomputer that supposedly played Jeopardy! and dominated the human competition. Watson answered no questions. It participated in no competition. It didn't do anything. All the doing was on our side. We played Jeapordy! with Watson. We used 'it' the way we use clocks.""

No way, we gotta rewind and cross-reference this map with the list of coordinates we saw on the other screen. This Greenland thing could be big.
