Jerry Seinfeld Covers Wired &Talks Digital Etiquette

Given his background in the entertainment business and his massive net worth, Jerry Seinfeld has a unique perch above our rapidly-developing, tech-crazy society.

The “Bee Movie” star is featured on the cover of Wired magazine’s July 2014 issue and in his interview he shares some tips for “how not to be a jerk in the digital age.”

Seinfeld suggests ditching Google Glass for the time being- “Between the in-group tiered rollout and the $ 1,500 price point, Glass is an in-your-face marker of social class – a symbol of self importance that suggest the wearer has too much money and too little fashion sense — and that’s caused a backlash.”

“It’s banned from restaurants, a woman was assaulted for wearing Glass inside a San Francisco dive bar, and a group called Stop the Cyborgs is campaigning for Glass-free zones. So for now, wear Glass only when the technology it will eventually supplant is heavily prevalent. Dive bar? No. Tech conference with 75 percent of the people on a laptop or cellphone? Yes.”

Additionally, Jerry encourages drunken Tinder activity- “Tinder and intoxication are meant for each other. That’s because they tap into the same kind of behavior. ‘When intoxicated, you’re making decisions based on a fragment of understanding,’ says social psychologist Claude Steele. A mere four photos and a tagline forces people to make decisions based on a cursory grasp of the situation. A sober person might balk at those limitations. Let those worrywarts obsess over their OkCupid profiles!”

And when it comes to posting pictures of your children, simmer down! “It’s tempting to saturate your social media feeds with your child’s awesomeness. But what begins as a desire to share your tyke’s first steps can quickly devolve into a hunt for Likes, faves, and comments.”

“At this point you have become a stage mom, with all the attendant’s issues. ‘The child may begin to feel responsible for their parent’s happiness, and that’s quite a burden to carry,’ says Leslie Anderson, a University of Manitoba researcher who has studied child actors. So yes, share some cute pictures. But don’t set your kid on the same path as the cast of Diff’rent Strokes.”

Finally, it’s perfectly acceptable to view R-rated movies on flights- “Coach class isn’t a Puritan church service, and you shouldn’t feel ashamed about watching a video with a little bump-and-grind. Your real concern is noise. ‘The biggest complaint we get about electronic devices, by far, is that they’re too loud,’ says Shawn Kathleen, a veteran flight attendant. We’re pretty good a keeping our eyes to ourselves, but not so much our ears. So while the occasional flash of buttocks is fine, make sure that nothing audible disturbs your neighbors.”

Premonition end? Sandra Bullock movie?

Question by whitney: Premonition end? Sandra Bullock movie?
Ok I saw the movie Saturday and it was good, but the ending has me confused. I know the writing probably wanted us to think this question and thats why it ended that way, but does he die or does he live? At the end she wakes up and shes pregnant, does that mean he lived and they were moving because he did get a job somewhere else and that is just the future, or was she pregnant when he died because he never showed up. The priest was talking about miracles so was it a miracle he lived or was it a miracle that she was pregnant. I want to go see this movie again because right now I believe he lived and my husband says he didnt. What does everyone else think?

Best answer:

Answer by raver82
I thought it was a great movie, but very confusing, very groundhog day type of movie, the amount of times she woke up, one time he’s there, the next he’s not. I was wondering the same, I think he died, there’s no way he survived after getting crushed by the lorry and it exploding. when she woke up pregnant you can hear voices in the other room, I couldn’t hear what was said. It reminded me of final destination – no matter how much you try to cheat death you will still die. what’s the point in the movie if he dies for definite in the end. so I’d say the pregnancy is the miracle.

  • WINEHOUSE AMY LIONESS HIDDEN TREASURES (F)

2011 posthumous release, a collection of previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions of existing classics, as well as a couple of brand new Amy compositions. Following her tragic passing, some of the producers and musicians who worked closely with Amy Winehouse, among them Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, spent time listening over the many recordings that Amy had made, before, during, and after the release of Frank and Back To Black. It was said by all who worked with Amy that she never sang or played a song the same way twice. It quickly became apparent to Salaam and Mark that they had a collection of songs that deserved to be heard, a collection of songs that were a fitting treatment to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy the friend.

Spielberg Adds Another Film to the Queue

steve-spielberg.jpg

With Montezuma and Robopocalypse already on his plate, Steven Spielberg (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) has added another potential project to the list. It’s The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, a project that Variety reports will re-team the director with Lincoln and Munich writer Tony Kushner. His script is based on David Kertzer’s nonfiction book about a 19th century Italian Jew who was taken from his parents at 7 by authorities of the Papal States; it came out that he had been baptized when he was ill, and it was illegal for non-Catholics to raise a baptized child. The incident led to international controversy, as well as many hilarious Three Men and a Baby-style moments for pope Pius IX and the church-state wards.

Mortara apparently didn’t hold it against the church, though. Instead of getting revenge or anything, the kid ended up eventually becoming an Augustinian priest himself.
