    Dead Platform Summer #4 - Foursquare

    Dead Platform Summer #4 - Foursquare

    It’s the end of our summer minisodes! We’ll back to our normal nonsense the week of August 22th. Until then, enjoy our look back at foursquare. Turns out Luke was a Foursquare mayor guy and Ryan really loved using it to get slightly cheaper brunch. We also discovered that Foursquare stopped being fun in both New York and London for the exact same reason — hyper-obsessive weirdos started using it too much.

    Dead Platform Summer #3 - Vine

    Dead Platform Summer #3 - Vine

    Welcome to our third vacation episode. We’re talking about the best social media platform ever created, which is Vine, of course. It was like animated GIFs, but with sound. It changed everything. RIP in peace, Vine. Also this is the dog in the car Vine that Ryan was babbling about.

    Dead Platform Summer #2 - Myspace

    Dead Platform Summer #2 - Myspace

    We’re back with another vacation minisode. We’re talking about the dead platform to end all dead platforms. The one, the only Myspace. It’s responsible for more bad haircuts than another other website possibly. It also profoundly altered the way we think about the internet and in many ways set the stage for the TikTok takeover of the 20202s. Stay tuned to see which weird old dead website we’ll resurrect next! (Cover art courtesy of the Midjourney AI.)

    Dead Platform Summer #1 - Periscope

    Dead Platform Summer #1 - Periscope

    Remember Periscope? It was a quirky little livestreaming app that either was or wasn’t part of Twitter depending on the day? There were hearts. There were riots. People streamed their fridges. It was a simpler time. We’re on vacation for the next few weeks, but we’ll be releasing a little miniseries called Dead Platform Summer. The first one is all about Periscope. Stay tuned to see which weird old dead website we’ll resurrect next! (Cover art courtesy of the Midjourney AI.)

    “Thor: Love And Thunder” And The Current MCU Mess

    “Thor: Love And Thunder” And The Current MCU Mess

    We’re on vacation! So this week we’re putting our usually paywalled episode out for free for everyone. Hope you enjoy! We’re talking about the frustrating mess that was Thor: Love And Thunder. We really really wanted to like this movie but boy was it hard to watch. Don’t worry we did try and make this a bit more interesting and talked about the current state of streaming content as a whole in case you don’t care about Marvel. But the episode does have a lot of Marvel talk lol.

    Also, keep an eye on this feed over the next month. We’ll have some fun surprises for you!

    Why Does Gen Z Love Flashmobs?

    Why Does Gen Z Love Flashmobs?

    This week TikTok is full of videos of Gen Z guys dressing up in suits to watch Minions: The Rise of Gru. The trend is called #Gentleminions. Is it irony? Is it nostalgia? Is it boredom? Why does Gen Z love doing stuff like this so much? And how does it connect to the Binley Mega Chippy and the Summer of Morbius? As you can see, we have a lot of questions. Press play and find out if we end up with any answers!
