New Ari Aster movie will be a 4 hour horror comedy



A new film from Ari Aster is on the works and from the sound of it, the new film is going to be pretty unique.

Aster was interviewed by the Associated Students Program Board at UC Santa Barbara. During the interview, he discussed his previous film work but also teased what’s coming in the future. He said his next project is a “nightmare comedy” with extended runtime. He added, “All I know is that it’s gonna be four hours long…”

It’s unclear how serious Aster is, but considering he released a 3-hour cut of “Midsommar,” there is precedent the filmmaker doesn’t have a problem testing the endurance of fans.

Spaniard porn actor, nacho Vidal, detained for accidental manslaughter in shamanic ritual



Translated from Spanish

On July of 2019, the most famous porn star in Spain, nacho Vidal, an employee, a friend and fashion photographer, José Luis Abad, were all in Vidal’s vacation country house, where he was performing a shamanic ritual to abad so he could overcome his drug addictions. The ritual involved administering the substance obtained from the bufo toad or Sonora desert toad, called “god molecule”. This toad is endemic from the north of Mexico and produces hallucinogenic, DMT, used in various rituals to induce an astral travel and in therapy to overcome addictions.

However, after ingesting the substance, abad suffered a heart attack. His death was deemed accidental but after efforts of the late’s family, a warrant for Vidal and the two others was issued, but due to the pandemic interfering, it was until this Thursday that they were detained. It is worth noting that none of the presents called the emergency services at the time, even with obvious signs of seizures and asphyxia the photographer was suffering.

This kind of rituals using the toads have become widespread in many areas around the world, like Tulúm. DMT is one of nature’s most powerful hallucinogenics and its effects are unpredictable. During these rituals, it’s consumed crystallized via smoking it, the trip lasts around 10 minutes and produces an intense trip, affecting the cerebral cortex with claims of gaining a deep, introspective new way of thinking.

Goyo's letter comes amid national outrage over the murders of Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and other black citizens who have died at the hands of police.

Hasan Minhaj posted a 12-minute video on Patriot Act's YouTube channel speaking directly to the Asian community to call on them to speak out (and vote) in support of Black Lives Matter and fighting against anti-Black racism within Asian communities.



He highlights:

  • Police responding to protests against police brutality with more police brutality

  • Criticizes the conversation being derailed by focusing on riots and looting - specifically calls out Asian reactions to this

  • Discusses the discrepancy of having Black heroes but contributing to anti-Black racism

  • Explains how work by African Americans during the Civil Rights movement enabled Asian immigration and freedoms

  • Raises the significance of Tou Thao's role in the murder of George Floyd (charged on Wednesday with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter)
