Above the Line Newsflash: Tarantino Tackles NFTs, WGA Announces New Credit, <em>Under Siege</em> Gets Reboot

I don’t understand NFTs. Chances are, you don’t either. My pal Matt Silverman, host of the upcoming Cool Hand Crypto podcast, suggested I think about a nonfungible token as a certificate of authenticity, and that when people buy NFTs, what they’re really buying is status. For example, I like to buy movie art prints from Mondo, Gallery... »

For instance, a person who is pro-life and violently anti-abortion might also be against taking a vaccine or wearing a mask to protect others, declaring “my body, my choice” while doing so, and completely missing the... »
