MyMusic season 2 has premiered on YouTube, and Hypable has had a sneak peak at episodes 2×02 and 2×03. Will the new season be totally “culkin”?

MyMusic is a YouTube sitcom in the style of The Office. The show is set at a music production company, featuring a range of off-beat and hilarious characters. The series was created by online producers Benny and Rafi Fine, who are famous for their Kids React series, and have over 5.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

MyMusic stars Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Grace Helbig (Daily Grace), Toby Turner (Annoying Orange), Jack Douglass (YouTube’s Jacksfilms), Chris Clowers, Tania Gunadi, Lainey Lipson, Jarrett Sleeper and Mychal Thompson.

‘MyMusic’ season 2 premieres:

The premiere episode of MyMusic season 2 sees the world’s most dysfunctional music production company returning to work. It seems that everyone is back where we remember them – that means Intern 2 is once again showing off his skills as a footrest.

After dealing with the fall out from Loco Uno, the team is scaling back from production to focus on podcasting (Indie: “You’ve probably never heard of it”).

The new season sees a new office space (yes, it really did burn down last time), which presents its own set of problems for the different characters. Somehow in the move, Metal has lost his desk (again), and Idol’s desk is so close to Techo and Dubstep’s that she can’t hear herself think. Cue drama.

And it turns out, not everyone is exactly the same. Hip Hop has returned to work determined to show on the outside what he is on the inside, which is a total nerd. And he’s a Nerdfighter – yeah, you read that right.

We are also introduced to a brand new character – Country, who is Idol’s cousin (or “identical cousin”, as they will sing off-key more than once in the premiere). “You’ll never get sick of us,” says Idol. And you know what, we probably won’t, because the Fine Brothers have once again managed to make what should be an annoying shtick into a giggle-inducing gag. Say what!?

As usual, some of the best moments of MyMusic are in the details that other shows would not bother with – the hilarious tag-lines shown during the interview portions, and the self-aware references to the viewing audience. Fans of MyMusic season 1 will not be disappointed with this premiere episode, and we can’t wait for more.

‘MyMusic’ season 2:

Hypable has seen episode 2×02 and 2×03, but unfortunately our lips have to remain sealed. What we can tell you is MyMusic is only getting better, and that season 2 will feature new additions to the cast, such as Lee Newton as Country (SourceFed) and Paul Butcher (Zoey 101).

And yes, the episodes we have seen have been totally “culkin.” For a sneak peak at what it is like behind-the-scenes, check out these backstage photos from the filming of season 2.

New episodes of MyMusic will premiere every Tuesday at 3pm ET on YouTube

The Fine Brothers are looking to make the second season of their YouTube sitcom even more interactive than the first. Creator Benny Fine says, “This season we’re taking the interactivity up a notch and creating more opportunities for fans to integrate with the MyMusic story universe.”

Fans can expect the cast to appear at live events, host podcasts, and feature on the MyMusic blog, in addition to the 80 social media accounts that link into the story. MyMusic takes the idea of transmedia to a whole new level, but just like all good transmedia elements, fans can also enjoy the series without following the blogs and social media accounts.

Quiz: How well do you remember the 2007 Oscars?

In 10 years, will we look back at the 2017 Oscars and remember every detail of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling awkwardly accepting award after award for La La Land while the other nominees politely clap and try not to grit their teeth? Or will the event fade into distant memory?

Maybe we can get an answer to that question by dialling back the clock to 2007 and see just how clearly we remember the 79th Academy Awards.

How did you do? Tell us how well you remember the 79th Academy Awards in the comments!

The nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be unveiled Tuesday, January 24.

You may know that one of those dogs-are-so-great-and-warm-our-hearts movies, A Dog’s Purpose, is hitting theaters very soon. Unfortunately, it’s now embroiled in controversy.

TMZ has released a video from the film’s Canadian set depicting a German Shepherd being forced into a fast-moving stream of water. As you can tell, the dog clearly does not want to go in it.

The most upsetting part of the video comes at the very end when we see the dog finally in the fake river but having trouble staying above water. The crew calls cut to rescue him/her.

You may know that one of those dogs-are-so-great-and-warm-our-hearts movies, A Dog’s Purpose, is hitting theaters very soon. Unfortunately, it’s now embroiled in controversy.

TMZ has released a video from the film’s Canadian set depicting a German Shepherd being forced into a fast-moving stream of water. As you can tell, the dog clearly does not want to go in it.

The most upsetting part of the video comes at the very end when we see the dog finally in the fake river but having trouble staying above water. The crew calls cut to rescue him/her.

“Sources connected to production tell us eight outboard motors were used to churn the water and recreate a rushing river,” says TMZ. “The dog eventually got in the water — or was forced in — but was quickly submerged.”

At 1:28 in the below trailer you can see a scene that looks similar to what was being filmed in TMZ’s video:

Universal and their partners at Amblin told TMZ in a statement, “Fostering a safe environment and ensuring the ethical treatment of our animal actors was of the utmost importance to those involved in making this film and we will look into the circumstances surrounding this video.”

A Dog’s Purpose stars Dennis Quaid and Britt Robertson. It opens next Friday, January 27.

Update: Josh Gad, who voices a dog in the movie, issued the following statement on Instagram. He speaks highly of the film but says he finds the leaked video “disturbing.”

“While I do not know all of the details and cannot speak to the level of care and caution that went into this moment (as I was never on set for the marking of this film), I am shaken and sad to see any animal put in a situation against its will.”

Since apparently some of you did not see the statement I issued last night, here it is again.

Moviegoers may be getting the Spidey we’ve all been hoping for! A new report reveals that Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie, set to hit theaters in 2018, will focus on the Miles Morales Spidey.

Update (January 18, 2017): Sony Animation confirmed on Wednesday, January 18 that their animated Spider-Man movie will star Miles Morales!

Original story (May 2016): Heroic Hollywood, who has a good record of breaking superhero news, is the source behind the exciting development. As was previously announced, the animated Spider-Man movie will be produced by LEGO Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The duo are also set to direct the Star Wars Han Solo spinoff for Lucasfilm.

Who is Miles Morales? As we wrote in a lengthy tell-all about the character last year:

Miles Morales is the current Spider-Man in Marvel’s Ultimate Comics series. Introduced in 2011, Miles is a black-hispanic young man who, like Peter Parker, is a talented scientist and self-proclaimed nerd. However, unlike his predecessor, Morales steps into the superhero’s shoes at the surprisingly young age of 13.

Raised in Brooklyn, Miles was born into a family plagued by criminal activity. Before settling down with his wife Rio, Miles’s father Jefferson used to be crime partners with his brother Aaron (Miles’s uncle). However, where Jefferson tried to shrink away from the lifestyle, Aaron continues to embrace it — assuming the role of classic Marvel villain the Prowler. After pulling off a heist on Oscorp, Aaron unknowingly takes a genetically modified spider home with him. It is at Aaron’s house that Miles is bit by the spider and starts the transformation into Spider-Man.

Where Peter Parker relished the opportunity to become spidey, Miles is reluctant to enter the world of vigilantism. What’s more, his family’s criminal history causes him to question whether or not he can ever be a hero, or if evil is hardwired into him.

Oh, and one other cool thing about him: The guy is immortal, unlike the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man.

The rumor mill was alive with chatter about the MCU’s Spidey being the Miles Morales version last year, but obviously those reports never panned out. The Peter Parker version of Spider-Man was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, played by Tom Holland. He’s getting his own spinoff film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, next year.

Telling the Miles Morales story on screen may be just the thing the animated Spider-Man movie needs in order for it to draw people into the theaters in December 2018. We’ve had enough Peter Parker stories!

2018 will be a great year for super hero diversity: Marvel’s Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman will be released a few months earlier.
