Tender Whispers


Fresh Meat is a supplement to the Rivet St. Louis recruitment efforts. The microsite will be a point of entry for young, curious creative types yearning for a workplace of gestalt and cannibalism, and will find its way to various online hiring hangouts. The movie(s) will have a home on YouTube, too, and hopefully a life of their own. (More episodes will be up soon, plus other treats as time permits, so keep those lids peeled and ponchos at the ready.)

This is a quiet beta launch for us to do a bit of fine-tuning and momentum-gathering. Imperfections are glaring, but please poke around, enjoy, and drop me a line with any bugs / questions / comments.

Chris Tux Redux


category: internet sensation

Our resident Chris Tucker impressionist, drinkspiller, employs his vocal mimicry in an attempt to get Jackie Chan to commit to Rush Hour 4.
  • Chris calls Jackie's agent, demanding to speak with Jackie.
  • Chris explains that he lost his phone in some ridiculous manner and didn't write down Jackie's number.
  • Chris again demands to speak with Jackie, reminding his agent that he's the black Owen Wilson. No, that Owen Wilson is the white Chris Tucker.
  • Chris starts to pitch Rush Hour 4 to the reluctant agent.
  • Chris is clearly writing the script as he goes along.
  • Chris pleads to speak to Jackie, telling his agent how he needs this movie, and describing a ridiculous series of events that now result in his desperation.
  • The conversation is documented and published on YouTube.
  • Fanboys start a petition to film and release Rush Hour 4 per Chris's rambling creative direction.
