Donald Glover writes 72-page screenplay inspired by Because The Internet

on December 06, 2013, 8:37pm


As if releasing Because The Internet the album wasn’t enough, Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, has gone one step further: releasing an entire film script inspired and soundtracked by each of the LP’s 19 tracks.

Simply titled “Because The Internet”, the 72-page script shows off Glover’s TV writing/acting chops and follows the life of a character simply known as “The Boy” (played by Glover himself), exploring his family dynamics and relationship with technology, high points and heartbreak. Each of the album’s tracks corresponds to each of the script’s “acts” or “scenes” and can be played from the site itself. Some scenes are even supplemented with actual short clips. It’s worth noting that on page 41, in place of a song stream, it says “secret track coming soon”.

Interestingly enough, a poster over at Kanye To The has dubbed this joint project/release as the first “World” album ever. According to him, over the last year or so, many of the elements found in both the LP and screenplay have surfaced one way or another through Glover’s various trailers, interviews, and social media activities. Though these hints may not have been obvious at the time, the poster suggests that the seemingly random tidbits were not so random at all, but somehow all connected into one big grand scheme that is Because The Internet.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about concerns that they just don’t understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

A popular means of making money is paid surveys where different companies pay you an amount to take a survey on their behalf. Wouldn’t you prefer to be able to ask questions at the same time, rather than sending some sort of email, or told to go look at the FAQ section which is usually worthless. When you want to know how to get a lot of money and you are working to earn money online, the next thing you will need to do is start learning how to promote the website that you have.

They often only last a year or two on the traditional trampolines, which means that you have to continually replace them. The look on a child’s face as he experiences the joy of jumping and the pure freedom of bouncing are worth more than we could ever imagine. Usually, they are not able to carry out their daily tasks by themselves without anybody helping them.
