Thanks to the Internet, fans can now know what a Jay Z/Daft Punk collaboration sounds like. A track by two of the biggest acts in music leaked online this week. It's apparently titled "Computerized" and features the famous robots' signature sound and Jay Z's flow. There's some speculation that it's a leftover track meant for Jay's 2009 album, The Blueprint 3, which would make sense considering the dated technology references and Daft Punk's heavily electronic sound.
Burundi's ruling party nominated President Pierre Nkurunziza on Saturday to run for a third term, a source close to the party deliberations said, a move that opponents said would be unconstitutional and could cause unrest. The source told Reuters the president had applied to run again and when asked if the party had decided on his request, the source said: "Approved already after deliberations." He was responding in a brief phone message.
Take a deep breath, America. You've dodged quite a bullet. Thursday's news that Comcast planned to withdraw from its $45-billion deal to buy Time Warner Cable was meet with a combination of relief and rejoicing from just about everybody. Even the companies involved seemed, at most, unsurprised. Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, with a fatalism usually unfamiliar to multibillion-dollar mergers, said, "We structured this deal so that if the government didn’t agree, we could walk away." The US government was openly gleeful. Tom Wheeler, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, one of the government regulators that had been scrutinizing the deal, said that the deal's failure "is in the best interests of consumers." Attorney General Eric Holder called the failure of the deal a "victory."
The last time we checked in on Ashley Judd, she was discussing some very disturbing threats she received on Twitter for making some comments about a basketball game. A lot of people tweeted graphic threats of rape and murder, and, as it turns out, she wasn't cool with it. In fact, she was so not cool with it that she decided to take legal action. here's the real issue according to her: "We are talking about human beings — I am a human being and so are the people who commit the abuse, and the underlying problem is the dehumanization of me ... [There were] porn images of me, threatening to ejaculate on my face. ... By the way, this doesn't happen to Jack Nicholson!"
A woman who hit President Nicolás Maduro on the head with a mango has been promised a new house for her troubles in a surreal tropical tale that has gone viral in Venezuela. The 52-year-old president visited the central state of Aragua last weekend when a local woman, Marleny Olivo, tossed the fruit at him with a message: "If you can, call me," -- along with her name and phone number. When the president's aides called her, Ms. Olivo explained she she had a housing problem and simply wanted to grab the president's attention. Later that evening Maduro displayed the fruit on his TV show "In Touch with Maduro", and announced the woman would get a house within a day. He also promised to eat the mango. Venezuela’s ever ebullient cybersphere did not miss a beat, with the president’s populist gesture drawing admiration and derision, plus plenty of jokes. “If for a mango they give you apartments, then you know what to do: throw him a pineapple!” quipped Dolar Today, a website that quotes the black market for dollars and is hated by Maduro.
True Detective director Cary Fukunaga's upcoming movie Beasts of No Nation will be released on Netflix, but Fukunaga told a Tribeca Film Festival audience that he hoped people would still see it in and other movies like it in theaters. The writer-director told former Focus CEO James Schamus that he's excited that the Netflix release will allow more people to see the difficult, dramatic film than if the movie was given a traditional platform release. Though Fukunaga recently expressed his misgivings about the modern format, saying "The difficult part of defining yourself as a filmmaker is the concept of releasing a film on a digital platform at the same time its released in cinema really strikes the fear of God in your heart that people are actually still going to go to the cinema to watch the film when if they spend $6 a month they could watch it for free on their laptops." He added, "That's the biggest democratic challenge for an art form that you have to ask the audience to be aware of the fact that they are just as responsible for the death of cinema as the people who make it." The hour-long talk included more discussion of the trends towards binge-watching and watching movies online as well as Fukunaga's background and approach to preproduction, rehearsal and filming, including the technical aspects of the latter.
