There’s a part in Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin where, without giving anything away, Scarlett Johannson walks completely naked through a black void. You are not watching The Sexiest Woman Alive, nor the movie star you know and love. Instead, you are essentially watching a fly get caught in a spider’s web, and it’s one of the most breathtaking performances I’ve seen in long, long time. It reminded me a lot of Jack Nicholson’s career-changing turn in The Shining, a comparison that might seem like a stretch until you look at it a bit more closely.
Well now I wanna see the shit out of this.
If you missed Tracy Morgan and Hannibal Buress last night at 92Y, Grantland has highlights:
On the (very important) question of white people using the N-word at karaoke.
Buress: “You can’t pick a song that’s [N-word] heavy. Like, Kanye’s ‘All of the Lights’ is OK. But YG’s ‘My N—a’ you should avoid.”
Morgan: “When you drinking at the karaoke spot, know how many [N-Words] are in the song.”
On the Brooklyn Nets
Morgan: “If you’re a Nets, Mets, or Jets fan, you probably have low self-esteem.”
On Buress writing for 30 Rock
Morgan: “It was just you and a sea of white dudes.”
Buress: “We had an Indian dude.”
On the 92nd Street Y
Morgan: “I didn’t even know this shit was here! Is this the Upper East Side or what? This is where the good cocaine is.”
On side businesses
Buress: “I want to open a Jamba Juice.”
On performing for white audiences
Morgan: “That’s why I wear a watch. Because if white people see me wearing a watch they feel like they can trust me.”
The good cocaine is at the McDonald’s below the J/M/Z train at Marcy Ave.
"Good cocaine" in NYC is never found in Brooklyn, or in NYC for that matter.
I’m just now discovering Pacific Standard Time’s music. So in love with their sound. #PST #MusicLover #BeesKnees
Pacific Standar Time is the album! Poolside is the group. But it is a great album.
See how food innovator Michael Voltaggio’s Fanatic Hack flips the script on game time chips.
wow, I almost accidentally clicked on a sponsored post that I didn’t think was sponsored content. Good job, Tumblr.
This show is so fucking good. Everyone needs to watch it.
"Girls walk this earth all the time screwin’ for free.
Now, why is it you add business to the mix, and boys like you can’t stand the thought?
I’ll tell you. It’s cause suddenly you don’t own it the way you thought you did.”
I feel all alone in the world, what should I do?
Can we ban people in their early 20s giving advice to teenagers. This literally say nothing. Keep moving forward? Okay?
