• This is awesome. “A Linguist Explains the Rules of Summoning Benedict Cumberbatch” [The Toast]

• Journalmalism! It’s a feature, not a bug. They’re not “screwing up” — the way things are is what they want. “Lara Logan Reportedly Returning to 60 Minutes Early Next Year” [Mediaite]

• Oh dear. Shia LaBeouf thinks online film critics make a living. “Shia LaBeouf Makes Fun of Movie Critics in His Short Film ‘HowardContour.com’” [Hollywood]

• This gets better. “Shia LaBeouf wanted to prove online film critics were terrible writers, so he plagiarized Daniel Clowes” [The Dissolve]

What makes it clear is that 60 Minutes will always be journalism, where as this web-site will always be puke.
