Do you -- the back of your head and do them properly with them I buy pulled the meters and you the reflection you. Do you spend money anywhere. But that's that's pretty much what comes in that's so cool she -- it's not only. I started cutting my own hairs and -- in this like the sixth grade nobody does a good job -- -- got a lot of practice. The -- is coming in my have mighty fine as well I'm I'm I'm this the -- here. -- little jealousy right now Jeff this is that this is the best it's ever been seriously ever it's pretty good. I like it man is making people cry. Making babies cry tears of joy Justin's beard is pathetic it is not -- -- I shaved his morning the beer is it's gonna take awhile. But CES I'm hoping -- -- you know I I always say I achieve this. You know pre CES not gonna do this year the beard is coming to Vegas yes yes yes yes and going to be the -- bodies. The three of us that Wilson there's no way -- -- -- I know I can then actually at the Q could you can go that we like humans too -- And -- it's gonna be isn't like yeah straight up his comes out like. One hair at a time just one disk grotesquely a long discussed again crappy -- -- just patchy in Grozny. A -- all right. Welcome to the show today we've got a lot to talk about but the cover -- -- hacking this weekend some presents some present real movie talk yet all we have. And -- and presence. That on the box says do not open them unless it's on the four or podcast. So we're gonna open a present that we receive no -- no idea live on the shows that now in the cool. It's who we get a lot to talk about. Like -- -- first -- first I want to tell you guys that flax one is probably one of the best movies I've -- really really low and I watch over the weekend and it was sold out all the shows are sold and play every hour in New York. But worth -- if he had a chance you'll see it. Definitely gonna do that eyes without giving much away yeah I won't give much away but you know if you've seen other Darren or not -- movies before I sure like requiem for a dream pie -- whatever. On into the rest -- you know that they're not -- is like the king. Of the disturbing descent into insanity do you -- and the black soil is just like that DC Natalie Portman go through this crazy changed and really it was shot last weekend you saw it I did see a last weekend to get there because I can see it's a really big and gruesome right -- I'm a big fan director but. Did not. Really like the movie really now did you think it was overly dramatic that was my one. I didn't think her character is likable and all. Well it's not I know I know it but on there were just pieces of that it. I guess my expectations were completely different my head is just spinning right and staying. -- but again not a fan you -- -- -- lot. I'm gonna -- an idea great reviews it was. Yeah I don't release eleven movies right feel disturbed at the the last movie I saw like that was maybe a clockwork orange. I only watched it recently that was the last movie so that this live every -- but it's really disturbing -- like that -- like -- requiem you know we really deeply disturbed that is one of those movies like and human. Fair enough but all the other actions but I'm in the minority and -- When the deal why don't writer -- -- eloquent and now it hit so hard to please I didn't know she was in it. Yes she was a very very small role she plays the older actress okay it works too much like what you and -- Will still. -- always -- it -- I -- mark maybe Justin and him. -- -- -- if it's not okay guys give away when you tell people better in a movie you could see that it's from the red carpet. You really think -- -- actually like white Knight Rider is in a move on. Like a half second free -- her face and in this area. Many say can I get an idea -- -- -- -- -- new -- is also shut up -- you could tell either way because I had said last week I thought we. They sit there as we get the Milliken and Susan awful actors she is is she -- and likes orange is good black rock because she's not trying to be -- media. And big deal Oca which isn't That '70s -- I mean I am I have such corruption really here. She's improper gamer too which is pretty cool why didn't tell me these things she is -- Apparently she's a big. Big -- fan. So hot -- thicker hotter or less I wish you didn't say well -- that the fact that she's you know and that's that's still pretty awesome but -- double click and then announces good enough for me to. Let's see what my anyway go watch -- one. And I think -- whether you Lebanon -- or don't watch it now. I know is why it matters is like gap they have a few movies you should've seen this year I wanna see true -- through hundreds of big Coen Brothers movie with. Jeff Bridges obviously that's gonna do great things for for film and so -- and -- it. You view just Adams -- I had noted that -- the it would be fun you've got no idea that I got as I do have an idea who Jeffords is now I'm -- -- preventive you have. I think he knows. Speaking of Jeff Bridges -- First article and wounded two in two -- -- -- is a trunk inspired hotel room yes. So obvious. I saw this last week in its -- -- pulled this -- so this is what this is real yet this is actually at a hotel. -- in Sweden they made their rooms look exactly like. Of art from -- return it's an Ice Hotel right yet and Ice Hotel the look at this they have all the neon lights and a bed at six like -- mean don't. -- -- -- -- Now it looks so comfortable that looks sick on site is actually made entirely of ice and -- which I'd -- be pretty uncomfortable to be sleeping in -- I've heard about these like go cold hotels nowhere is this screen this is in Sweden -- might be an attempt to -- the city did don't even tried there's there's also a hotel I believe in Alaska and that they where they it's like a winery -- -- only the frozen winery. Yes. And each room is like this cool little igloo -- how they did this -- -- I have no idea that's pretty cool sick look. So what what I find. Even more impressive is how they have like the circuitry lights yet the ice they had neon lights throughout the entire -- the -- is actually pretty small. I did for a -- inspectorate -- it view it here. Plus surprisingly militant purchase snow leopard is not included nor did include an owner of at all. Aren't the anyways so everyone's seen the -- trailer yes and they've seen in true width the CG. Young version of Jeff Bridges. Isn't terrible. It really bad and maybe just seeing the young version of -- -- sides of Iran are. I think it was a new trailer that -- it came out -- -- played right before black swan. Some on the big screen so maybe I I zealots so differently he looks like porcelain -- -- -- -- -- today yes I know it's time he looks like here -- CG graduates actually in the costume any need to send shivers -- and -- he does look very -- What's up with that looking like crap. And images seen at the beginning where it is he saying goodbye it was someone -- really young red and -- -- -- it. -- -- that -- -- to use -- as which averages but it's weird because. God does that look like crap. And get it and and room. It's all right anyway -- -- G don't have as anyone seen an hr movies now. Comes out Wednesday seventeenth. I'm afraid there's no reason there's our buddy Jeff Bridges determine managed. It put on a few pounds for the show. You stature on June 2 with a smile about I had it does switch off their cameras quality -- -- -- -- forgot you had a we're talking a lot of blog sites get hacked this -- and doctor. Garner the blog network home of -- blog which -- these -- Manhattan gossip blog yes. He's -- is motivational title nine could talk to coaching as he now just have been able hold delicate stuff yeah and last weekend they'd be followed in the stances Amazon. This what is what these I mean Wilson to explain how these sites get half a widows mobile Wilson has no right to actually know how they -- shortages like to throw up dabbling in on April that a bunch of mumbo Jumbo -- not our heads and I'm like oh a new guided smart -- indeed. I think that just hacked into their files and somehow came upon there has got company counts I don't ask I I -- -- for accounts and web sites. Watts a bad idea I don't settle for an account on hawker four is there any incentive college other than to post accident comments there's no reason that god just totally -- want it -- not accident. And not to play it. -- hate the British had seen it come -- you really in the world blog don't you remember -- back back back in the day. In a room talking to do knowing there's a -- there was -- like a caption contests and -- -- dude. This is not reviewed and so these to have valley -- to re evaluate was like -- it's like -- -- really bizarre gossip column for the tech world right right desolate valley as if people care -- and there was like and do you name your own caption -- And it was forget -- mean do you remember the determined that it so I wrote I wrote a caption and I won the contest -- nice and then little did I know the dude was supposed to be on powers of the -- -- -- -- my -- forget is is like -- wearers that it it wasn't a nice caption he's -- Analysts like his views to John G -- any more like a hoodie for something -- looked like crap. And I wrote I wrote something about like. You know he thought he was gonna be in radio in -- TV. And it wine and if the design so the next day and an awkward happens -- -- -- -- I got six I was in human and like history -- version yeah and then hide it. -- -- -- If you -- so those are all those interact yelled -- that's a fact there is like a I think it does. 200000 path or the got leaked onto the pirate day in you can download all of them so anyone who's had a doctor password. I'm definitely be sure to change those especially the use that -- and other web -- -- -- think -- IE use. Does the gawkers pay as you for an email or forget to ask for email address and -- -- to creating users and what's really funny is that I get are less -- Nick Denton -- password for talker on his own Flickr and so Nick Denton himself who's this CEO of all those -- networks. He use same patent for a bunch of different web sites and they hacked into his Flickr account -- So that's it lets media mixer to have different passwords for every Wednesday at deleted some point in time we all sign up for something then like the next day completely forgot about -- -- there sure and -- -- it totally screwed we dance -- -- for everywhere. Through it all why should you have a different one yet. I mean. I know people who have a password that they've always used everywhere and then the in the district and the driver -- -- to get an idea what that -- service were you concerned that. Or. It's a website that basically takes all your passwords and makes one -- it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What's even funnier is that -- Donald email -- -- also act -- president Donald.

This one they took a little more seriously and so good for them. But. I feel like that good for their facial expressions of a price I just said you know express yourself time no one takes it seriously notably you know it's like the lowest you know ranking -- awards show I bet I did like house hosted by Neil Patrick -- this area. -- mind -- is attractive.
