Michael Ross Albert sends us "A Kickstarter campaign to help fund the first major New York revival of NIGHT OF THE AUK by Arch Oboler."
Originally produced by the legendary Kermit Bloomgarden in 1956, the first production of this space epic was directed by luminary Sidney Lumet, and starred Christopher Plummer, Claude Rains, and Dick York. This summer, Outside Inside, a new independent theatre company, will produce the first major revival of Oboler's interstellar adventure as part of the 16th Annual New York International Fringe Festival!
Hugely influential in the world of science-fiction, Arch Oboler's underrated and undervalued works have all but fallen into obscurity. Now, Outside Inside needs your help to resurrect a lost classic of the sci-fi genre.
Set aboard an ill-fated spacecraft returning to Earth after the first successful lunar expedition, NIGHT OF THE AUK is a nail-biting adventure, a cautionary fable, and the most fun you're likely to have in the theatre this summer!
Presented in a sleek new 75 minute adaptation and designed by a top-notch team of professional artists, NIGHT OF THE AUK promises to be an unforgettable FringeNYC experience.

Despite the widespread belief that meme-warriors won the election through tactical shitposting of photoshopped Pepe the Frogs in Nazi arm-bands, the reality is a lot more complicated.
The Lightning port has thus far resisted the cruel fate that befell the headphone jack, and despite rumors that it may be disappearing come iPhone 8, for the present and foreseeable future, Lightning cables are a hot commodity for iPhone users.

All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady. You could buy a smartphone attachment for a conventional camera tripod, but who wants to carry that kind of gear everywhere they […]
The forced transition from analog to digital TV signals was probably met with relative indifference from people with Netflix subscriptions and the “I don’t even own a TV” snoots. But anyone living in the vast swaths of the country that don’t have guaranteed high-speed internet, broadcast TV is a perfectly valid (and 100% free) way […]
