    It’s out in the U.S. but not Canada apparently. I have both U.S. and Canadian iTunes accounts. Sorry, I should have specified.

  • Joe Carson

    Ah, that would explain it. No worries. I managed to rent it from the library. ;)

  • Andrew Lincoln

    It AAAAAALLL comes down to the cream cheese. The cake is the same except for the food coloring. Frank, I’m sorry, you’re so wrong – I think of Velvet Buzzsaw is 100% a surreal horror comedy. I don’t think it’s critiquing art at all. It’s just fun.

    This just in…Jay Cheel blows up the internet by mentioning he watched a video about The Last Jedi. Also, he’s working on a new show that sounds really awesome…

    Regarding the Amazon-leftovers-unboxing dude… At least he has good ol Jack Torrance behind him.

    There was a UK channel 4 show that’s pretty close to what Jay is talking about called Faking it. They would train a person to do a profession opposite to their own and they would have to fool a panel of judges. A punk musician had to retrain as a classical conductor, a Navy corporal became a drag queen, etc. It was loads of fun!
