Being aware of your tendency to spoil, no matter how innocent your intentions, is vital. It’s like being a big dumb galoot and not realizing your giant dumb arms are smashing everything around when you move. The galoot at some point has to become aware of their unintended destruction, or they will stop being invited to places. You may have some kind of altruistic reason to be spoiling things for people, but you know what? To Hell with your intention. No one will care about the innocent reason you let slip that Arya Stark is secretly a basketball-playing werewolf – they’ll only care that you spoiled it, period.

4 Tactics For Preventing Spoilers Before They Happen

And Hannibal’s cancellation, its failure to find an audience, proves that the networks’ generally shitty programming is totally justified. Sophisticated viewers just don’t watch network television. And those who do—middle Americans, old people—aren’t ready for the kind of sophisticated, serious storytelling that shows like Hannibal have to offer. They don’t watch it. Internet viewers can handle it, cable subscribers can handle it, but the kind of people who watch network television as a rule can’t handle something like Hannibal…

Hannibal Buress on his new show and newfound celebrity

The A.V. Club: There aren’t any advance screeners for Why? because you’re shooting each episode the day it airs, right?

Hannibal Buress: Yeah, man, no advance. We’re just dropping it out of nowhere, but not really out of nowhere.

AVC: So what’s the show going to look like? What’s actually going to happen on it?

HB: It’s going to be like—did you ever see the Michael Jackson “Remember The Time” video? It’s going to be like that, but a comedy show. [Laughs.] No, it’s going to be some sketches, some interviews, some man-on-the-street stuff. It’s going to be my show. Yeah, man. I don’t know why we have to do this. Not the interview, but people, [asking] “What is the show?” I don’t know, it’s going to be funny. I don’t like selling it. [Laughs.] It’s just going to be funny shit from my perspective, and that’s what people can expect.

AVC: So you didn’t go for the traditional Hannibal Buress Show kind of sitcom.

HB: No. I’ll do that when I’m 38.

AVC: What’s the creative process for the show like, and how is it different from what you’ve done in the past?

HB: We’ve got seven or eight writers and we have a pitch meeting, people come up with stuff, and then I decide what pitches to go forward with. I write stuff. It’s cool to write and produce my own stuff. It’s been nice to kind of be all parts of the process and form a show from scratch—the tone of the set and the colors, picking the theme music, and casting, and figuring out all these different details.

AVC: So you’ve been able to make kind of your dream show?

HB: I wouldn’t say my dream… Yeah! Yeah! One of my dream shows! My ultimate dream show wouldn’t be on Comedy Central. I don’t think we have the budget for my ultimate dream show.

AKIRA Trailer Remade with THE SIMPSONS Could Take Out the World | Nerdist
There has been talk for years about making a live-action remake of the highly-acclaimed anime film Akira. Some argue that this film is too classic to be touched, and others fear it would not translate well into live-action (such as Tetsuo's transformation). Still more feel that Max Landis and Josh Trank's Chronicle was already the closest adaptation of Akira. In the meantime, we can still enjoy wonderful imaginings of the remake that never was, such as this Simpsons/Akira trailer, that pays homage to Katsuhiro Ôtomo's outstanding film as well as Matt Groening's beloved Springfieldians. The Bartkira Project, as it is called, was originally the creation of artist Ryan Humphrey that blossomed into a collaborative project bringing hundred of artists together to recreate all six volumes of the Akira manga through the lens of Matt Groening's Simpson's characters and locations. Bartkira, which can be read for free on its website, started as a fun little meme and has now grown into a bit of a
