Trent is pissed at The Grammys and  CBS. So are we. They didn’t edit Beyoncé’s chair dance at 8pm when my kids were watching, expecting to see good music performances. No one puts Trent Reznor, Lindsey Buckingham, Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age and Metallica in the corner.

The Rush of Football Twitter

Jason Gay:

This is instant and addictive, a ritual that conventional TV cannot duplicate, which is why people tether themselves to devices, and the experience of watching a game feels like participating in a loud, virtual, interactive roast. Digital chatter is often far more entertaining than the programming itself. (This is true of most live events. Nobody really hosts the Oscars anymore. Twitter hosts the Oscars.) Television attempts to harness aspects of the online mob, but it’s usually unsatisfying, corporate, stripped of the irresistible rough edges. Merely watching a game on TV—just lying there on the couch, taking in the play-by-play, the commentary—now feels as quaint as knitting.

Totally agree. What’s always been strange to me is that my Twitter habits change so much when I’m watching a live sporting event. I can’t help myself. I simply must trash-tweet. 

Neil DeGrasse Tyson opens up a can of scientific fact-checking on the movie ‘Gravity’

iheartchaos:

Gravity has gotten generally pretty positive reviews, but if you’re super famous astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, you wouldn’t be watching a movie like Gravity for the writing, the acting or the amazing sound. You’d be watching for every little scientific inaccuracy, as you should if you were Neil DeGrasse Tyson. So after watching Gravity, Tyson went on a hilarious science ass-beating fact checking mission. Because even if it’s a good movie, Hollywood shouldn’t get too sloppy with science.
