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.

Opens in theaters:
Review: You’re Next takes place at the Davison’s family reunion in their middle-of-nowhere home. What was meant to be a celebratory occasion for the parent’s 35th anniversary, quickly turns into a full-on massacre with an invasion of masked-murderers. I was pleasantly surprised that I actually enjoyed this film! I checked out the movie trailer before going to the theater and was afraid that I would pee in pants if I watched it. Wouldn’t you rather watch a scary movie at home while all bundled up in layers and layers of blankets? But if you’re a wimp about horror films just like me, trust me when I say that you will live through this film without any nightmares afterward because You’re Next was hilarious. It reminded me of the Scream and Scary Movie films for its ridiculous and over-dramatic acting that made it stupidly funny, despite all the bloodshed. At one point the movie was getting boring, but a couple of twists happen towards the end of the film. You definitely get desensitized from the gruesome images as you can’t help but root for one of the son’s girlfriend named Erin (Sharni Vinson), who sheds light on this dark night as she tries to survive against the killer.
I give You’re Next one thumb up for a good balance of humor and suspense. And I am definitely proud of myself for not wimping out on this movie.
