See the hilarious evolution of one reporter's loooong signature sign-off



Glenn Payette, a reporter for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Newfoundland and Labrador, is known for his long sign-off: “Glenn Payette, CBC News, St. Joohhnn’s.”

But the reporter didn’t always end his broadcasts like that. In fact, this compilation shows that his signature “St. Joooohhhhnnnn’s” is something that’s evolved gradually over the years. 

It’s barely noticeable in the first few clips, but eventually it transforms into the “St. Joooooohhhhhhnnnnnn’s” that Newfoundlanders know and love. 

Is this some kind of long gag that Payette planned and unrolled slowly over the course of three decades?  Read more…

Netflix video explains the fascination that would lead to 'Altered Carbon'



What is humanity’s fascination with immortality? In a fascinating featurette preparing for the premiere of Netflix’s Altered Carbon, experts and influencers speak about humankind’s history of chasing immortality and continued strides toward it.

In Altered Carbon, citizens of a futuristic society contain all their mind’s information – their souls, depending how you look at it – in a “stack” at the base of the neck. So long as the stack is in tact, it can be stored in different bodies (“sleeves”) and continue to live.

The “History of Immortality” shows human society around where we’d expect it to be, pre-Altered Carbon; We continue to ask if death is inevitable. In the video, Steve Aoki describes death as a disease that can be cured. Read more…

They call themselves “Broverwatch.” (And, yeah, they really love playing Overwatch.)

Don’t let the project’s name fool you: Broverwatch couldn’t be further from the bro-y, alpha male get-together you might be imagining. Social media producer Duncan Vicat-Brown—one of the four “bros”—says the project started up because “men don’t talk about their feelings enough.”  Read more…
