They Scream! We Scream! – The New York Times

Ashley Peldon gets paid to scream.

While this may be a vocation that many people would jump at right now — why shriek into the void when you can pad your wallet doing it? — screaming for a living is a rarefied art.

The image of vocal terror is among our most universal and elemental, from Edvard Munch to Janet Leigh. But translating that into sound on film involves more than a microphone on set. Bloodcurdling from an A-lister is uncommon: Often, the screams we hear in movies and TV are created by doubles and voice actors, in Burbank studios, with specialists standing by to ghoul them up. It’s physically taxing and emotionally draining. And bizarro as a job.

“Usually, I’ll just type in ‘death scream,’” Trevor Gates, a sound designer, said of his effects database. One stock scream is so well-used it’s got a name, the Wilhelm, and has

Social media’s preemptive spiking of New York Post story shows bias against conservatives continues

Twitter and Facebook are quickly backpedaling after suppressing a New York Post story damaging to former Vice President Joe Biden, but that doesn’t erase the fact that just weeks before an election, the social media platforms continue to enforce their rules differently for those with whom they disagree politically. 

When the Post published a story last week that Mr. Biden’s son, Hunter, allegedly made money from providing access to his father when he was vice president, it seemed like Twitter and Facebook all of a sudden “got religion,” as we say in the South. The platforms said they spiked the story because it contained links to documents — allegedly from Hunter Biden’s personal computer — that they claimed might have been hacked or illegally obtained or that the story might be outright disinformation.

Boy, that’s a great standard to have, but it’s funny how they didn’t seem to have

New Eastern Airlines flying between New York and Los Cabos, Mexico

  • Eastern Airlines is launching non-stop flights between New York and Los Cabos, Mexico, starting November 14.
  • No, not that Eastern Airlines. 
  • The new airline is a product of 2020 that’s attempting a reboot of the iconic Eastern Air Lines that ceased operations in 1991. 
  • Flights to South America began in January and expanded to the Caribbean over the summer but the new airline is nothing like the old. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico will only be a non-stop flight away from New York City this fall as a new airline prepares to inaugurate a new route between the two cities on November 14. 

Eastern Airlines will operate the twice-weekly flights to the Mexican vacation destination, departing from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and currently selling for unusually low introductory fares of under $250 round-trip. But while many will recognize the airline’s name,

Now That New York Movie Theaters Can Open, Will Blockbusters Follow?

After months of nearly constant bad news — theater closures, movie postponements, “Tenet!” — the film industry last week finally received a glimmer of good news: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that cinemas outside of NYC can start reopening on Friday.

Hollywood studios have made it clear that blockbusters won’t return until cinemas in New York and California, two influential movie markets in the U.S., can reopen. So Saturday’s news was seen by many in the exhibition community as a momentous step forward.

In recent weeks, movie theater owners have been pleading with Cuomo to allow them to resume operations as indoor dining, gyms and other establishments have started to welcome back patrons. They argued that New York was not an island unto itself — and having those theaters offline hindered the entire entertainment industry’s chance for a large-scale moviegoing revival.

“It has become clear that movie studios are

‘Big pile’ of eels dumped in New York City park; impact not yet known

NEW YORK — Andrew Orkin was taking a break from his evening jog to sit by Prospect Park Lake when he turned around and was startled to see a tangle of wriggling snakes.

“And quite a big pile — fully alive,” said Orkin, a music composer who lives near the Brooklyn park.

They turned out to be eels that had escaped from one of two large plastic bags that split open as a man dragged them to the shoreline. After dumping the eels in the lake, the man walked away, explaining to bystanders that “I just want to save lives.”

The illegal release late last month became a curiosity on social media, but the dumping of exotic animals in urban parks isn’t new. In cities across the country, nonnative birds, turtles, fish and lizards have settled into, and often disturbed, local ecosystems.

New Yorkers free thousands of non-native animals every

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Movie theaters outside of New York City will be allowed to reopen on Oct. 23 after a months-long hiatus spurred by the coronavirus, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday.

Theaters will be required to cap capacity at 25% with a maximum of 50 people per screen, and only in counties that have a positivity rate below 2% on the 14-day-average and no cluster areas, Cuomo said.

Moviegoers will be required to wear masks except when seated and eating or drinking. Theaters will be required to meet enhanced standards for air filtration and ventilation.

The governor announced the move at a Saturday briefing where he said New York was making progress in tackling COVID-19 “clusters” in certain areas of the state, including Brooklyn and
