The Five Best Uses of Pink Floyd Songs in Movies
They’re great, just awesome, and they helped to define an entire generation of rock. Whew, okay, now that the adoration has been given and the necessary accolades dispensed, it’s more than fair to say that Pink Floyd has indeed had a profound effect upon the music industry and even the film industry in their own way. While new material isn’t bound to pop up anytime soon, largely because two of the original members passed away, it’s still a favorite pastime of many to just sit, pop on a record, a tape, or a CD depending on preference, and drift away

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Hackers ‘The Dark Overlord’ Suspended from Twitter
No crime goes unpunished, and so it is that the Dark Overlord — a hacker group responsible for leaking the most recent season of “Orange Is the New Black” online — has had its Twitter account suspended. It’s a bold move from the social-media site, and the message is clear: Harassing people in 140 characters or fewer probably won’t have any consequences, but messing with Netflix certainly will.
Or maybe not. Variety reports that the suspension likely had to do with the group’s decision to leak the contact information of several clients of a healthcare provider based in Beverly Hills. After coming across season five of “OItNB,” the Dark Overlord attempted to blackmail the post-production company they obtained the illicit episodes from — and, according to Variety, ending up »

Dan Harmon Reassures ‘Rick and Morty’ Fans That Season 3 Is Happening
“Rick and Morty” co-creator Dan Harmon went on a positive Twitter rant over the weekend reassuring fans that behind-the-scenes issues are not to blame for the prolonged absence of Season 3. Harmon also confirmed that he and fellow co-creator Justin Roiland are not feuding over the Adult Swim animated comedy, contrary to reports.
Early Saturday morning, Harmon responded to a “RaM” fan’s apprehension that the massive popularity of the series has outweighed his and Roiland’s desire to make the show.
This is the nicest phrasing of this concern in TV history and I promise it will not happen. RaM dies of satisfaction in..I'm guessing 2040 https://t.co/hoe0f1NGzR
— Dan Harmon (@danharmon) June 24, 2017
The initial Twitter exchange resulted in a massive 26-tweet-long message dispelling any and all rumors that production has halted. The reason it seems for Season 3 to be taking longer than expected? Simple: Quality over quantity.
