That's it! I'm buying a video camera.

There's literally no reason why you and I should not be making movies and cashing in on awkwardness when a film can be released with this title:

My pitch is for a real-time movie called BRB, about a bunch of hip, underemployed college grads who've recently moved to Brooklyn (i.e. the most fascinating, culturally relevant people on earth), waiting on line to buy the latest iGadget. It'll delve into their very mild disaffection; their slightly inarticulate confusion; their somewhat dwindling trust funds; their struggles to recall the perfect Family Guy scene for every social situation. I don't think "mumblecore" adequately describes what I'm going for. I've been kicking around "shirt-edge" as a genre title. What do you think?

Ha!

Did you hear that Philadelphia is the new Brooklyn? Yup. Two adorable 20-somethings from NYC are city funded to give tours of the hip, subversive side of Philly and entice 'young people' to move here instead of coming for college and then getting right the fuck out as soon as they graduate.

Maybe they can get Chuck Klosterman to pose in front of the Rocky statue for the back of his next book jacket?
