2013′s House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey as a ruthless politician, making killer one-liners, on his way to the top, was based upon 1990′s House of Cards, starring Ian Richardson as a ruthless politician on his way to the top. They are both brilliant shows, and an excellent illustration of the differences between American and British politics, drama and humor, mentioned here before by Stephen Fry.
There are lots of tough breaks in Kevin Spacey’s House of Cards, but in the end there is a jauntiness to it. People kill themselves; politicians lie and traduce; no one can be trusted — and still, somewhere deep it has a kind of American optimism.
It’s different in the UK version. This comedy here is truly cruel – and, one layer down, even bleaker and more squalid than it seems at first. Unlike Spacey, characters aren’t likeable anymore. [Atlantic]
Dmitry Kozak, the deputy prime minister responsible for the Olympic preparations, seemed to reflect the view held among many Russian officials that some Western visitors are deliberately trying to sabotage Sochi’s big debut out of bias against Russia. He warned a Wall Street Journal reporter that he would release hidden-camera footage of journalists in their hotel bathrooms if they continued to complain about the substandard hotels in Sochi.

Chinese rule table tennis, however when a Belgium confronts them: Losing is quite funny to watch. This video from 2014, it’s not a short clip and the commentary is in Chinese, but the highlights from this match between Taiwan’s Chuang Chih-Yuan and Belgium’s Jean-Michel Saive are pretty darn hilarious. The duo faced off at the Tai Ben Invitational earlier this month. Chuang won the match 4-0 and went on to the final where he was beaten [Metafilter].
Ever find yourself watching a politician talk and wishing they were saying something completely different?
It’s a feeling we’ve had a few times with President Obama – on Guantanamo, on drones, and now on the Arms Trade.
Thankfully for us, Cassetteboy agreed to put together our dream speech from Obama on the Arms Trade Treaty – one where he supports it and insists that it must protect human rights, and stops transfers if the weapons could be used for human rights abuses.[more]

A thief in a garish feathered hat runs out of a shopping mall store with a leather bag clutched in his hand. He jumps down the stairs and tries desperately to escape as ropes descend down the mall’s atrium.
Guards emerge to catch the criminal — but they’re on horseback, dressed in brimmed caps, and decked out with ruffled collars. A regiment of guards on foot marches toward the thief with halberds outstretched.
After they catch the would-be escapee, a frame falls from the ceiling of the mall and brackets a view of proud policemen: This is Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch.”
Alfonso Cuarón’s IKEA horror. This is a very clever, well done trailer based on the trailer for the movie Gravity. And, if you’ve ever been inside of an IKEA before, you know it is true too.
