This weekend I achieved a lifelong dream of seeing a special holiday screening of “Home Alone” on the big screen at a local movie theater. I’m sure I saw it at the theater when it first came out, but I can’t remember (I was 5 at the time), so I jumped at the chance to get the full “Home Alone” movie theater experience as an adult. In fact, when Nick and I saw the poster up outside the theater a few weeks ago, we literally ran in to the box office and breathlessly begged the guy at the counter to dig us up two tickets to the surely sold-out show. He laughed and said we were the first ones to even ask about it. Needless to say, on Saturday we had the best seats in the house.

The movie was as great as it always is, but the movie theater setting came with an unexpected perk: I sat next to a very chatty old man who had apparently never seen “Home Alone” before. He narrated pretty much the entire movie as I struggled to stifle my laughter. Here are some of his quotes that were just too good not to share: Keep reading »

British Bookseller Waterstones Overshadows Amazon’s New Drone Program

Genius!

Sorry, Amazon: your robot drone delivery program just got one-upped, in terms of both efficiency and novelty. The future of delivery will not be dependent on technology, but rather winged animals — that is, if one British book retail giant has any say in it. Waterstones has trounced Amazon’s plans (which, really, now seem quaint in comparison) by announcing the introduction of their O.W.L.S., or Ornithological Waterstones Landing Service. A fleet of specially trained owls will be ordained with the task of delivering your Waterstones package within 30 minutes. Dispiritingly, this is only proposed as a future plan: as the bookseller’s appropriately named press manager, Jon Owls, reasons, “It takes ages to train owls to do anything, and we only just thought of it this morning.” [Refinery29]

Italian Lady Explains All The Italian Hand Gestures You Need To Know (NSFW)

Parlare Come Un Italiano!

During all the years I studied Italian, I never learned much of the important stuff I needed in Italy, like “Only with a condom on!” and “Get your hand out of my purse, you fucking pickpocket scum.” Too bad comedian Veronika Poli wasn’t around. Here are all of the hand gestures you need to know to tell someone to fuck off or shut up, or draw more attention your boobs. The only other thing you need to know is to bring your own condoms and just shake it in their face. [Laughing Squid]

Your First Black Girlfriend Is Sparing You The Future Embarrassment

You Can Touch Her Hair, But Your Friends Can't!

Hey guys, meet your first black girlfriend! Her name is Akilah Hughes, and she’s a writer and comedienne. Lucky for you, this isn’t her first time at the interracial relationship rodeo — so she knows exactly what to say when it comes to the “unspoken anxiety” and those “cringe-worthy moments” that are pretty much an inevitable part of the “white guy falls for black girl, foot-in-mouth syndrome ensues” narrative. In fact, she’s so familiar with it that she’s gone right ahead and cleared some of the big questions up for you in one brief, hilarious video. So go ahead and get the fried chicken. She doesn’t care!

Watch This: Finally, An Honest Trailer For “Home Alone”

Home Alone Honest Trailer
It's One Part "Ferris Bueller" And One Part "Saw"

A few years ago, my brother and I were sitting at a coffee shop, and all of a sudden he got this really horrified look on his face and said, “Do you realize at the end of ‘Home Alone,’ Joe Pesci was about to bite off all of Macaulay Culkin’s fingers, and he totally would have if that old man hadn’t walked in and knocked him out with a snow shovel?”

Daaaaaamn,” I said, and we both just sat there, contemplating the crazy, violent fever dream that was our favorite childhood Christmas movie. Don’t get me wrong, I still love “Home Alone,” it’s just that if it had been marketed honestly, well, the trailer would looked a lot more like the one above. [YouTube]
