The most popular passwords of 2012 prove just how stupid people are

I just don’t understand. How hard is it to think of one word or phrase that you can remember? And seriously, “password” has been in the number one spot for years, do you think you’re clever or funny?

Website of the year: Kanye Wes

The Life Aquatic / Flashing Lights

This site is simply genius. As you can see above, it takes lyrics from Kanye West songs and combines them with the appropriate still from a Wes Anderson movie, or, visible below, a line from a Wes Anderson movie combined with a still from a Kanye West music video; hence the name of the site, Kanye Wes. Now I’m not sure how many of you who visit my site both love Wes Anderson movies and appreciate Kanye West, but if you do, I assure you, this site is for you.

Here are a few more of my favorites:

Quentin Taratino says that Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds may be two pieces of a three piece set

Tarantino, when it comes to his films, is an absolute master. Although his ideas may seem outlandish and at times just absurd, he somehow manages to pull it off in an astonishing manner. He has always talked about the inter-connectivity of his films and just this week he mentioned that his two newest films, Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds, may very well be connected.

Quentin Tarantino is well-known by fans as a guy who likes to construct inter-connected narratives. His characters and their relatives pass from one film to another, to the point where he’s got two “universes,” describing the real life of his general character set, and the films those people might go see. There are even a few characters (such as Harvey Keitel’s Winston Wolf, from Pulp Fiction) who can cross between universes.

So it isn’t a surprise to hear that Tarantino is thinking of his two most recent films, Inglourious Basterds and the upcoming Django Unchained, as two thirds of a loosely connected trilogy. But what does that mean for us?

Tarantino told Total Film,

Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a trilogy. As different as they are, there is a companion piece quality. There might very well be a third one. I just don’t know what it is yet.

In addition to sharing Christoph Waltz as a major player, the two films both offer Tarantino’s own take on history, with World War II and slavery in the United States offering the films their respective historical background.

Tarantino has talked of making a ’30s gangster film, and so it’s easy to assume that might end up being the third film. (As The Playlist, which passed along the quotes, guesses.) Or we could see something entirely different from the director. He’s been working at a slightly faster pace recently than he did for some time, so lets hope this burst of inspiration continues to allow him to close the trilogy with similar speed.
