Check out Andy Warhol's newly-discovered computer artwork

Turns out Andy Warhol was as handy with a computer screen as he was with a silk screen.

Back in 1985, the artist was commissioned by computer and electronics manufacturer Commodore International to show off  the Amiga compute’s graphic arts capabilities. He saved his artwork on an Amiga floppy disk, but the files were inaccessible — until the Carnegie Mellon University Computer Club stepped in this year.

Hear all the F-words uttered in 'Wolf of Wall Street' -- VIDEO

Screen Junkies, what tricksters! The YouTube channel put out a video Tuesday touting it was a supercut of just the “F” words in The Wolf of Wall Street. And by “F” words, they meant literally all the words that begin with “F” said in the film — save the actual F-word.

The video’s premise is a play on the number of times “f—” is uttered in the film, an unclear number that is somewhere in the 500s.

Check out the video from Screen Junkies — the same people who make the always-hilarious Honest Trailers – below: READ FULL STORY

Mark Ruffalo posts first cast photos from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' set

Avengers Assemble! While filming for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron has been in progress since early April, today marks the first official day that all six Avengers — Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner – were reunited on the set, according to a tweet from Ruffalo.

Though that alone would have been enough to excite fans, the actor — seemingly well aware of what the public really wants — took things one step further by tweeting out a few photos of the cast posted on his Instagram and Tumblr. One photo shows the elusive Black Widow herself, a.k.a. Johansson, in a character-branded track jacket. (And it looks like the short red curls are back to stay!) The other? A reunion photo with Ruffalo’s fellow science bro Downey, Jr., of course.

'Supernatural' recap: Killing things that need killing

On a normal day, the Winchesters would take the case of a girl who was abducted and imprisoned by a family of vampires pretty seriously. “Save the girl!” and all that jazz. But the case featured on Tuesday night’s episode was anything but straightforward.

Why? Because the girl at the center of the case was almost as bloodthirsty as the nest with which she’d spent the last few years. READ FULL STORY

'Mindy Project' recap: An officer and a gynecologist

“When I need to take the Pill/ I look upon the windowsill…”

Mindy Lahiri and her cohorts dove headfirst last night into what is (somehow?) one of the big political debates of 2014: Birth control access! Dr. Lahiri was counseling an 18-year-old who wanted a prescription for the Pill without telling her overprotective detective father (Tim Daly), who proceeded to find out anyway, and then storm into Mindy’s office to demand answers. “You just watch yourself, you sex-crazed quack. I could get you on the no-fly list like that,” Detective Lang threatened.

Mindy, already on a no-fly list and never one for letting other people win an argument, chased him out of the building and proceeded to give him a piece of her mind. “Where do you get off on coming into my office and yelling about your outdated views on birth control? Who do you think you are, Rick Santorum? Obviously not, because you’re not hot.” (Real talk: Tim Daly is totally hotter than Santorum.) Get it, girl. On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t be cheering in the streets just yet. Detective Lang wrote her a ticket for Public Female Hysteria. Turns out it’s still on the books. READ FULL STORY

A series of horror-themed audio plays, TFBTP is the brainchild of terror auteurs Larry Fessenden (Beneath) and Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead) who, according to press release-legend, conceived the idea during “a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void.”
