Senior Citizens Dressed Up as Famous Movie Stars for Their 2014 Calendar


Oh my glob. Amanda just posted a bunch of photos of our Bob’s Burgers group from Dragon*Con, and I can’t handle how amazing they all are! We had so many people in our group this year, and everyone was perfect! Check out the full photo set here

Edit: Added more photos because I couldn’t help myself.

Introducing the New Vimeo Player

Vimeo has a sweet new player!


It’s easy to get lost in an epic action-adventure film. Luckily for us, artist and film lover Andrew DeGraff has put together a collection of illustrated maps that trace the journeys of some of our most beloved film characters like Indiana Jones, Luke Skywalker, and even Gerald “Coop” Cooperberg (spotted via Supersonic Electronic). Retrace your steps to the Death Star or Camp Firewood, if you dare.

Life in the Middle: Neighborhoods at New York City’s $51,865 median household income
All this week, WNYC reporters are visiting neighborhoods – one in each borough – smack at the city’s median income: just $51,865 per household. We want to learn how it feels to live here on that sum, and how it feels to be middle class in New York City now.
Today Jim O’Grady reports from Grasmere, just south of The Staten Island Expressway.

Hey, Don’t write yourself off yet.  It’s only in your head you feel left out, and looked down on.  So try your best.  Give everything you can.  Don’t worry what their bitter hearts are gunna say.

@Motorola @Verizon & @BestBuy, the suck super group.

@Verizon @Motorola @BestBuy Here is an email that I just sent to consumerist:


Inspired by the sounds of Kanye’s “Black Shinhead” and images of French Bulldogs, I decided that I would end my Skype only, no phone policy and order a custom MotoX.
My wife has a contract with Verizon, so we decided to go to Verizon, add a line to her account and order this cool new phone.  We went to Verizon’s sales site and clicked a link that said “customize your MotoX”.  This took us off Verizon’s site, over to a site branded by Motorola, powered by Best Buy where I was able to customize the phone that I wanted to order.
During the ordering process, the site said that there was a problem, leave the page open, that we needed to call them to complete the order.  We called them.  They were closed.  I left the page up overnight and called them during normal hours.
We worked through the verification, got a code, put it into the site, and the site failed, timeout.  Boo.  I customized my phone again, ordered it again, got the same error again and called in again.  This time the representative would not add a line to my wife’s account without her being on the line, and she had gone to work by this point.
We called again, with her on the line and were finally able to add the line and order the phone.  I was excited to have set up my GMAIL, and other apps in advance, importing contacts from my iCloud, I was looking forward to getting a phone that was just for me.  I was patient while the phone was custom assembled in America for the next 10 days.
Finally today I got my phone here at work, and I was gleefully unboxing it.  When I get it out of the box, far from already customized to my settings, the phone has a note that says to call a number before even turning the phone on.

I call, follow the instructions, and get routed to customer service.  When asked for my phone number I provide it and the person has no record of it at all.  I give my wife’s number, they have record of it, but no new line on the account.  They say that they will need her on the line in order to add the line (again). 
Although it is inconvenient, I get her permission to be called at work, and they call her.  When attempting to put me on hold he hangs up on me.  I do all these steps again and get a more competent person on the phone.  This person informs me that he can see the SIM activation in the system, but it is failing.  The onus is on my family to complete this process as he informs me, the company intends to charge me full price for the phone if they are not able to activate it.  My support person then put me on hold so that he could call another support person, no ish.
So, in order to avoid being charged for Verizon’s mistake, I have been on hold for well over an hour here at my desk, giving me plenty of time to write this tip.  I really have to pee.  This experience is pretty much the  complete opposite of the
hip, youthful marketing that drew me in.  The processes are antiquated, slow, and absolutely displeasing.  This may be the worst sales process I have ever been a part of, and I am currently trying to buy real estate in New York City. 
Can I get re-embersed for the time that Verizon is wasting of mine?  They are really holding me hostage on this call.



PS I think that I just got put back in the general pool, not holding for my rep anymore.

</consumerist email>

Since I sent this email I was on hold another hour, only to be told that they will not be able to make my phone work for up to 10 more days because that is how long it takes to port a number.  If the phone is not working in 10 days I should call them back ( a 12th time).

I would never recommend any of these companies to anyone every again, if you need a phone, get an iPhone from AT&T, I started ordering a MotoX more than 10 days ago, and it may or may not work in 10 days.  I really just want my money back, but the people I dealt with are so incompetent I doubt that they could achieve that.

This is literally the worst customer experience of my life, I officially hate my Android before I ever even turned it on.  Sad.


Introducing Instagram Direct

Watch Instagram’s co-founder Kevin Systrom announce Instagram Direct on our livestream video here.

Today, we’re excited to bring you Instagram Direct, a new way to send photo and video messages to friends.

Over the past three years, the Instagram community has grown to over 150 million people capturing and sharing moments all around the globe. As we’ve grown, Instagram has evolved not only into a community of photographers, but also into a means of visual communication. From a photo of your daily coffee to a sunrise shared from the top of a mountain hike, every Instagram moment contains something you find special—something you broadcast to your followers when you tap “share.”

There are, however, moments in our lives that we want to share, but that will be the most relevant only to a smaller group of people—an inside joke between friends captured on the go, a special family moment or even just one more photo of your new puppy. Instagram Direct helps you share these moments.

From how you capture photos and videos to the way you start conversations through likes and comments, we built Instagram Direct to feel natural to the Instagram experience you already know. When you open Instagram, you’ll now see a new icon in the top right corner of your home feed. Tap it to open your inbox where you’ll see photos and videos that people have sent to you. To send a photo or video to specific people, tap the camera button to enter the same simple photo or video capture and editing screens. At the top of the share screen, you’ll see the option to share with your followers (“Followers”) or to send to specific people (“Direct”). To send using Direct, tap the names of the people you want to send your photo or video to, write your caption, tap “send” and you’re done.

After sending, you’ll be able to find out who’s seen your photo or video, see who’s liked it and watch your recipients commenting in real time as the conversation unfolds.

Photos and videos that you receive from people you follow will appear immediately. If someone you’re not following sends you a photo or video on Instagram, it will go to your requests so you can decide if you want to view it.

To learn more about Instagram Direct, check out

Instagram for iOS version 5.0 is available today for download in Apple’s App Store, and Instagram for Android version 5.0 is available today on Google Play. Instagram for Windows Phone is in beta. Stay tuned for future updates.
