Talking to the artist [Grimes], who now goes by 'c' (a reference to the speed of light).

"OK, wait," she said, after several minutes of theorizing about a post-human space Goebbels spreading fascism beyond the Oort cloud.

She spoke with The New York Times alongside the team behind Endel, an app that says it uses artificial intelligence to generate ever-changing soundscapes to fit different moods.

Grimes contribut[ed] a soothing, ambient soundtrack to the company that Endel calls an "AI Lullaby."

She was inspired to work with Endel because of her search for "a better baby sleeping situation" for her five-month-old son, X Æ A-XII Musk, who she calls 'X.'

"When you have a baby, you're always using white noise machines," she said. "It's much easier to get them to sleep if you train them on some kind of audio situation. And so I was just like, could this be more artistic?"

She used her baby as a sounding board. "The first version, there was too many sort of sharp bells, and it caused tears and just general chaos," she said. As she fussed with the mix, "X would smile more and stuff."

"I was basically personally just referencing ambient music I've heard, and then kind of trying to make it cuter."

Social norms do not dictate X's media diet. "I've watched Apocalypse Now and stuff with my baby," she said. "He's into radical art." [source]

Ahh, to be white and rich.

Who is this for?

Musical artists keep chasing the Christmas music bag when Halloween is ripe for the picking.

The go-to song for Halloween is still 58-year-old "Monster Mash." One "All I Want for Christmas" or "The Chanukah Song" and you're set for life.

Tell me you wouldn't at least pre-save a Goo Goo Dolls Halloween album.

Steel Peony

Previously on Adam Riff™:

The action-adventure show features the most heroic and iconic vehicles from the DC universe as they defend Gotham City alongside Batman, Robin, Batgirl and other DC heroes.

The action adventure series will portray the secret adventures of [Shaq]'s collection of cars and trucks, with each having unique skills like musical stylings, Shaq Fu and their mastery of the ultra-secret language of Shaqanese and the Shaqtionary.

I'd say that children's entertainment nowadays is creatively bankrupt, but I grew up watching Police Academy: The Animated Series and Hammerman.

At least build around a celebrity who is known for his car collection, like John Cena.

Mario Karts animated series when?

Meanwhile, on Prime Video:

Honest Thief

Vegan alert:
Tom hates the "health cookies" that his girlfriend makes.

I stumbled upon a Letterboxd user who includes "vegan alerts" and "vegan points" in her reviews:


Vegan alert:
Something horrific happens to an animal.

Vegan points:
Writing a letter to a turtle.

The Forty-Year-Old Version

Vegan alert:
-Reference to ribs
-Agent said he likes silken robes

Vegan points:
-Soy milk is used as a plot device. It signified gentrification, but it didn't go into detail about the dangers of dairy and why someone might want to choose a non-dairy option (allergies, concern about animal abuse, etc.).
-The rap that references salami and bacon talks about the meats in a negative way.

Ingrid Goes West

Vegan alert:
-Ingrid wears a double egg shirt
-Butter and egg pics on Insta
-Ingrid lets a dog eat Cheetos

The Glorias

Vegan alert:
-Dad (Timothy Hutton) offers Gloria another egg roll
-Sign for corned beef at the diner where Gloria orders hot fudge sundae

A Paris Education

Vegan alert:
-Talking about how crocodiles look mean at the nature preserve

Scare Me

Vegan alert:
-Cheese on pizza

The Human Voice

Vegan alert:
-Axes have a leather cover
-Tilda Swinton tells the dog to shut up

Lost Girls and Love Hotels

Vegan alert:
Margaret (Alexandra Daddario) asks if they're going to eat screaming baby or bacon.

Zoom Dick Incident

During a trip to the Warner Bros. studio, NBA Superstar LeBron James and his son accidently get trapped within a world that contains all of Warner Bros.' stories and characters, under the control of a malfunctioning, all-powerful force named Al G (played by Don Cheadle).

With the help of Bugs Bunny, LeBron must navigate through a never-before-imagined world filled with iconic movie scenes and characters as they re-assemble the Looney Tunes to rescue his lost son.

Now to get back home, LeBron and the Tunes have to unravel Al G's mysterious plan and win an epic basketball game against digital gamified super-versions of the NBA and WNBA's biggest stars as the entire world watches.

So…Warner Bros.' Ready Player One × Warner Bros.' Stay Tuned.

Rory: Warner Bros.' Kingdom Hearts.

LeBron should show up in the Snyder Cut with no explanation, and then in Space Jam 2, you see how/why he showed up.

LeBron stands in for Green Lantern?

The Stay Tuned adaptation should be a Netflix series with Roy and Helen trapped in Netflix.

Whoosh, my head is severed

With consumer demand for hotel rooms down on weekdays, Encore Las Vegas decided to reduce its hours starting on Monday, October 19. That's when the resort closes at 2 p.m. on Mondays and reopens at 2 p.m. on Thursdays.

The reduced hours also affect the restaurants and bars at Encore.

Customers can check into the resort at 2 p.m. on Thursdays and must depart by noon on Mondays. [source]

Something something Broadway flop.

Has Wynn Resorts courted television productions?

Love Island shot in a production bubble at The Cromwell and Rio. Shark Tank shot in a production bubble at The Venetian/Palazzo. Daily Wager shoots at The LINQ. Hell's Kitchen will shoot at Caesars Palace.

Surely some reality show would shoot at Encore Beach Club or XS.
