So last month my roommate introduced me to Snapchat. I was immediately hooked. What an ingenious way to send pics of yourself or others and not worry that it can be shared.
Snapchat is an app that allows you to take a pic of whatever you want, send it for a few seconds, then have it dissapear. Risky pictures constantly get people in trouble, and its high time that an app was made that allows people the ability to send a picture without having to worry if it'll later be used against them. You can also insert text and use a coloring pencil once youve taken a picture.
Sexting can now easily be replaced with a dissapearing picture. The next time Tiger Wood's and his multiple mistresses want to have fun via phones, he won't have to worry about them turning and showing everyone their pictures.

Review: Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) is still AWESOME at kicking booty!! This sequel definitely lives up to the crude and gory reputation it has made for itself. But this time around, there are many more jokes from the very get-go and a LOT of sexual references and images, including Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) dressing up in full bondage for his superhero costume while throwing tantrums as per usual. The movie is now in the perspective of Hit Girl as she enters into high school and deals with the pressures of not only real life as Mindy, the normal teen who has to put up with Mean Girls copycats, but also the superhero life. Kick-Ass 2 allows the audience to view the film as a comic book with corresponding fonts and camera shots of scenes, making it seem like you are up close and personal to the action. Jim Carrey’s role as Colonel Stars and Stripes is completely different from what we’re used to seeing him in. He is super built, tough, truly sounds like a New Yorker, and violent—which is ironic since he had bad-mouthed this film and publicly apologized for being involved with such a gruesome project. Perhaps that is why his role was not as big as I thought it would be…The only thing I didn’t like about this film was the overly sexualized scenes with the high school queen bee, sex slaves, prostitutes, and other female superheroes and villains. But it was made up with Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) showing off his six-pack abs that made even Hit Girl check him out!
I give Kick-Ass 2 two thumbs up for surprisingly outdoing the original, which is notoriously difficult to do in the movie industry.
