It’s Friday and you’re looking forward to the weekend. You have nothing planned, so you’re looking forward to just relaxing at home, maybe doing a little yardwork, but nothing serious when your phone pings. Your heart sinks as you read over the notification. It’s the government backed cultural department. You’ve been selected for this weekend’s mandatory viewing of the new Marvel movie to help stimulate the economy and prop up the failing movie industry. The requisite $25 ticket price has already been deducted from your account. You consider skipping out anyway. They already have their money, right? But you don’t want to have to deal with appearing in court to contest the noncompliance citation you’d incur. So you go to the movie. How bad could it be, right? Just a couple hours of mind-numbing entertainment starring people with all the free time in the world. You sit in the dark movie theatre, a bowl of government issued pop corn in front of you ($15 deducted automatically from your account) and watch as the title drops. Avengers: The Longest War: Part One flashes on screen along with the FCC mandated run time listed very tiny in the bottom right corner. Your heart sinks further as you read 1 Day, 23 hours, 30 minutes. Chris Pratt appears on the screen and laughs. You know it was probably in the script for him to laugh, but it feels as though he is laughing at you, you poor, poor fool.

We continue our trend of covering huge movie franchises this week by diving straight into a couple of Fast and Furious related updates that are sure to not grate on you. You all love hearing about Vin Diesel every week, right? Right. We also promise and eventually deliver some Star War news that is sure to excite or perplex or whatever. I think we did a pretty okay job of it, too. It’s all right here, right now, on Zero Credit(s).
After being mad and screaming all last week, it’s time to dial things back a bit and just vibe. Little influence from current news, little influence from our lives, mix it up and just vibe and see where we end up. Has the cultural landscape evolved beyond the scope that allowed Game of Thrones to be the tour de force that it was? Let’s discuss how our lives have been changed and shaped by technology so that we’re just little islands for wave after wave of content to crash into. This is Zero Credit(s).
Lots of things to be mad about, and only 1 hour, 12 minutes to be mad this week. Henry and John are charged up with rage this week at the very, very dumb things that are happening. A leak of a supreme court decision draft, the content of the leak, and of course, Fast and Furious news are all just rubbing us the wrong way. Hope you like hearing people be mad.
