Catfishing Catfish through a different Catfish

For three years, if you search New York Magazine for Catfish you will inevitably find this. This is Catfish, a 2006 short film by Lana Taylor that you can watch here.

It is not the 2010 documentary Catfish about the perils of dating and interaction in an online culture that leads to (willing-ish?) exploitation of a woman and her family when the curtain is revealed on her Emerald City built atop Myspace and Facebook. 

The logline for Lana Taylor’s Catfish is: 

Quirky ‘Russian’ femme fatale meets geeky hacker in this spoof of crime dramas.”

The logline for Just 2 Bros’ Catfish is:

Young filmmakers document their colleague’s budding online friendship with a young woman and her family which leads to an unexpected series of discoveries.”

It’s just a case of mistaken titles back when an intern at NY Mag had to assemble a list of trailers for film premieres at Sundance and assumed that there couldn’t be two different films called Catfish. Or “mistakes happen” I was told in an email from a generic NY Mag account back when I worked at Current. Which is true as their Approval Matrix shows that even Dreamworks characters are hipster Pixar villains.

Whatever. Mistakes happen. 

you may ask, “GOD. WHY!?”

I wrote about why a long time ago.

also: sliced cube man is back!

Totally disappointed by nerd sites that missed the obvious jokes from Nolan in the new The Dark Knight Rises trailer.

Namely, the “R” for the Gotham Rogues is the same stylized R used for the Robin outfit made canon by the Tim Drake-era Robin and later his shift into Red Robin.

And the touchdown-scoring player’s name is Ward, which is the last name of actor Burt Ward from the 1966 Batman TV Series.

Ahem. Glaven. 

pretty interesting stuff.

OH MY GOD YES

I just want to point out that the guys holding the signs are friends of mine who went to my highschool

mainly one of them, a guy named Dave, is the biggest Batman fan i know

he even went on to publish a comic of his own with a friend of his, it’s called Ban: Sidekicked http://tdotcomics.ca/bansidekicked-a-review/

i’m from Ontario Canada by the way, and so are they
they made the trip out to Pittsburgh just to get a chance at being in the film

lo and behold they made it in hahaha, i’m even excited for them!

edit: guess who has two thumbs and just now learned Hines Ward is real? 

also: “Actually, that Robin-style “R” isn’t there by Nolan’s design, guys. Extras were told to make signs in support of the Gotham Rogues, and obviously some of people who went were comic book nerds.” [via]

edit 2: Goddamn it, Steelers. This is worse than the time I assumed the Jets had really found a terminator when they brought Cromartie on. 

The “original” trailer for Bellflower in honor of it’s VOD/DVD release. 

I saw Catfish back at Sundance before it was picked up by (oddly enough) Relativity Media and also planned a reality show.

The new trailer is out for the film. The above trailer is for a short film with the same name that New York Magazine has had up on their YouTube page for six months. (The actual ‘doc,’ because I’m still not entirely sure the film isn’t genuine…)

But even then, fish analogies still suck.
