Donald Glover's Short Film Clapping for the Wrong Reasons: Whaaaaa...I Like It!
Imagine, if you will, Donald Glover dribbling a basketball in a large house. A phone rings. Danielle Fishel starts talking about a strange dream. We’ve got a swimming pool. A porn star. A nude Glover in a shower. More basketball. More ringing. More confusion as to what in the effing eff Glover was going for with his short film. Is it a teaser?
But wait! It is a teaser and there is more! Around 23 more minutes, actually. This version is less randomly jumpy but isn’t any more cohesive. It’s just a day. A day that involves a dude puking in the kitchen and random cameos.
It’s actually sort of interesting, if you enjoy watching people and listening in on their random conversations like I do. Both clips are directed by Hiro Murai and written by Glover. One can only guess as to the intent of Glover in releasing the short film. It shows a different side from his “Community” character and Childish Gambino persona. Is that the point? Perhaps this is a taste of what’s to come from Glover in the months and years ahead.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
