FilmStruck cancelled; Barry Jenkins and others react

  • FilmStruck is a streaming service that affordably provided old, rare, arthouse, independent and classic movies and documentaries. Earlier today, Turner and Warner Bros. Digital Network announced that it will be shutting down the service.

  • The Criterion Channel, which was on FilmStruck, will obviously be affected and now has to find a new home.

  • In a joint statement, Turner and Warner stated, “While FilmStruck has a very loyal fanbase, it remains largely a niche service."

  • Honestly, just blame AT&T.

  • FilmStruck will be gone as of November 29.

  • People on Twitter reacted quite strongly today:

Will the end of FilmStruck affect you? What streaming services other than Prime or Netflix do you like? Do you still buy physical media?

#RyanNeedsGrinder: Campaign to get Ryan Gosling to visit Toronto cafe finally worked

someone's post got approved first but since i already had this in my journal i figured i'd post it because it's quite frankly qt

  • Independent coffee shop Grinder Coffee in Toronto has been campaigning on social media to get Ryan Gosling to stop in for a cup of coffee while he's in town for TIFF.

  • Owner of Grinder Coffee, Joelle Murray, says in this video that the campaign is to "promote spots outside of the entertainment district or Yorkville."

  • The coffee shop had previously unsuccessfully campaigned for Idris Elba to stop by.

The campaign worked!

Celebrities tweet about the #mprraccoon, who captivated the world last night in death-defying climb

since i wasnt allowed to post this on ONTD i'm saving it for my own journal

ICYMI: Yesterday, a raccoon was spotted climbing the USB building Minnesota. The photo taken from the 13th floor went viral, and the world watched with bated breath as the raccoon climbed higher and higher. Traps were set on the building's rooftop in the hope that the little guy would make his (or her) way to the top of the building. All the drama unfolded in real time, as local Minnesota news live-streamed the raccoon's climb up, then back down, then back up again. The #mprraccoon made it as high as the 23rd floor before getting ontop of the roof to safety. Even famous folks found themselves caught up in the spectacle:
