New Apps Show Videos Are A Hot Commodity, And Just Getting Hotter

Not to be out done by Vine or Instagram, YouTube’s co-founders have created MixBit, a new video editing app that literally does it all (shoot-edit-publish) for videos. And the co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen have even done one better, since the app allows for videos to be edited together as a string of clips–up to 256 actually. Nice.

You can get the app on iPhone, and as a web app, with a version for Android slated for next week.

Gaga Gets Naked For “Art”

Anybody else tired of this whole celebrities show up and suddenly they’re “art” thing? I actually find Marina Abramović really interesting, but this thing with Gaga….I don’t know, and that crap with Jay Z, it was seriously awkward to watch. Mainly, I’m referencing this hot mess, and this, and (yawn) of course this had to happen, cause he’s Jay Z, in an art gallery. So crazy, right? It’s all so very lame. Somebody pointed out (I can’t remember who) that basically Jay ain’t doing anything Andy Warhol didn’t do back in the day with his collaboration with many, many a celebrity. Hmmmm. Let me think about that….ya, NO. NO. NO. NO.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of Jay Z (and we’re talking from back in the day stuff), but truly the closest this guy will come to “creating art” is if he paints “ego” on a canvas and frames it for all to see. Otherwise, sorry Hova, it’s I’m just not feelin’ it.

Things Are About To Go Down On ‘Sons’

Sons of Anarchy returns Sept. 10th for its sixth, and final season, and it seems the show will start off with a bang. Not to be outdone by ‘Game of Thrones’ shockingly violent last episode, ‘Sons’ premiere will include a moment of violence already being labeled as “disturbing.” And mind you, this is in reference to a show about bikers–as an audience we’ve already seen some pretty disturbing scenes.

Kurt Sutter (amazing writer that he is) has written the scene not to be gratuitous, but “to show there are consequences for actions.” Uh oh.

 

The Bromance Between Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis Is Over

I should use the term lightly, “bromance,” because these two roided up OG’s probably had a case of haterade for each other for a while now. Whatever you think their “friend” status is (was), count it officially cancelled after Stallone took to twitter and beefed out some knowledge regarding the human q-ball that is Willis:

Now I’m no Nostradamus, but I’ll go on the record right now, and say that if a physical altercation went down between these two, the smart money is on the Italian Stallion. Willis’ only hope is an “over the top,” arm wrestling showdown–and Stallone could STILL probably break his limb as casually as breaking a bread stick. Besides, Willis certainly has had his share of issues lately. Mainly, the dude can’t seem to participate in an interview at all.
