"talk dirty to me"
Kathryn Bigelow, director of The Hurt Locker, is the only woman EVER to win a Best Director Oscar. Only 4 women have ever been nominated. Women made up only 6% of Directors for the top movies of 2013. There were NO female nominees for directing, cinematography, film editing, writing (original screenplay), or music (original score) during last year’s Academy Awards.
So our office just switched to a new chat program called Slack (we were using Skype before), and it comes with a bot called Botbot that is programmed to take commands.
For example, if you type in: botbot image me <basket of kittens>
then it will google a picture of a basket of kittens and insert it into the chat. (We had a lot of fun with animal pictures.)
One of my coworkers, Jessica, for whatever reason could NOT type the commands correctly, which led to a lot of teasing, and then one of our other coworkers typed botbot animate me <jessica fail>, which is a command to find a gif.
So Botbot found this gif of SNSD’s Jessica totally flubbing her baseball pitch that one time, which in itself is pretty hilarious and sent everyone into fits of laughter, but I was the only one who knew the context of that incident and who Jessica really is, which made it all the funnier to me.
Anyway there’s no moral to this story other than it’s funny when K-pop collides with real life, even if I’m the only one who notices.
