WW163: RUNPEE, SEPH LAWLESS, and THE GOLDEN FRIENDS

Hey y'all…..here are the 5 things I LOVE this week!

1.) Broad City. Agasin……I am TOTALLY late to this party….


Broad City follows two women throughout their daily lives in New York City, making the smallest and mundane events hysterical and disturbing to watch all at the same time…..or at least that is how IMDB describes it. Personally - I agree - it is great! Originally a web series, the series was created by Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, who also star as the series leads from 2009 to 2011. Oh…and one of the producers is Amy Poehler! 
Here is a clip….but beware - it is a bit not child friendly!!!!


Catch up by watching it on demand - or on MUCH!

2.) You know I just love creeeepy spaces……..so I just love these cool photographs by Seph Lawless. These are super neato deserted abandoned shopping malls across the United States! "Black Friday-The Collapse of the American Shopping Mall" is the book that documents the demise of the Rolling Acres and and Randall Park Mall in Ohio, both built in the the mid-1970s and abandoned in 2008 and 2009.




According to Brandt: “The goal was to show the world a different side of America. A vulnerable side. I think an abandoned mall is symbolic of the economic decline of America and is a true indication of what happens when cities like Cleveland suffers massive population loss due to loss of manufacturing jobs.”

3.) Ok…now I am not sure if this is ridiculous - or BRILLIANT……but this app called RunPee is worth checking out if you have a small bladder (husband - I am talking to you). Yes…..it is only 99cents…….and is available for the iPhone, Android and Windows phones…..let me show you how it works…..RunPee determines the best "Pee Times," 3-4 minute windows during which nothing crucial, extra funny or visually fantastic is occurring, for a large database of commercially produced films.
You start a timer at the beginning of the movie and your phone will vibrate (no bothering fellow movie-goers) a few minutes before each Pee Time so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the movie.
It offers "suggested Peetimes" - Not all peetimes are the same. Some are better than others. The apps have a short message before the peetimes informing you which one we would recommend using and which ones might be for emergency use only.

There's even a synopsis of what you might miss during a particular Pee Time (you can read that on the toilet): 
 What do you think????
Awesome…..right?
Oh…you can access the information on the website RunPee for free. The movie list on the free website only goes back 3 months but the mobile app let you view every movie in the database - covering nearly ever wide release movie since Summer of 2009.
