Clerks 3? No. Canon Film Cameras? No. More teens on Facebook? No. Rick Grimes staying on Walking Dead? No. Dave escaping Granny? No. New music? YES!

Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohen both leaving “The Walking Dead” during Season 9

Both Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) and Lauren Cohen (Maggie Rhee) will only be in six episodes each on the ninth season of “The Walking Dead”. Lauren Cohen will be starring in ABC’s “Whiskey Cavalier” which she signed on to when negotiations had stalled during contract talks over at “The Walking Dead.” As for Andrew Lincoln, “Andrew is leaving because he’s had enough of it and wants to focus his energy on movies,” an insider close to Lincoln tells Us Weekly. And on top of all this Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) just signed a $20 Million contract to stay on which leads us to believe he might perhaps be taking over the center stage from Andrew Lincoln.

Canon has ended sales for its last film camera

Canon has announced that it is officially discontinuing the EOS-1v, its last film camera, as reported by PetaPixel. Production of the EOS-1v — which was launched in 2000 — actually ceased back in 2010, but Canon continued to sell the remaining stock. Although this means Canon is no longer selling any film cameras, it doesn’t spell the death of film — at least, not yet. Nikon still sells two film cameras, the F6 and FM10.

“Clerks 3” will never happen and here is why!

As reported by Slash Film after Clerks 2 hit theaters in 2006, Kevin Smith was interested in making a third entry in the slacker comedy series. But alas, it was not to be. Smith had a script ready to go, and a budget set, but what ultimately killed Clerks 3 was the disinterest of one of the lead actors. During a recent “Fatman on Batman” Q&A, Smith confirmed that Jeff Anderson, who played video store clerk Randall in the series, didn’t want to return, which kind of put the final nail in the Clerks coffin.

Teens are ditching Facebook

A new study has confirmed what we’ve long expected: Facebook is no longer the most popular social media site among teens ages 13 to 17. The Pew Research Center revealed on Thursday that only 51% of US teens use Facebook. That’s a 20% drop since 2015, the last time the firm surveyed teens’ social media habits. Now, YouTube is the most popular platform among teens — about 85% say they use it. Not surprisingly, teens are also active on Instagram (72%) and Snapchat (SNAP) (69%). Meanwhile, Twitter (TWTR) followed at 32%, and Tumblr’s popularity (14%) remained the same since the 2015 survey.

Geek Off:

Should smartwatches, such as the Apple Watch or Android Equivalent, be treated the same as a cell phone when behind the wheel? Should you be able to be fined like you would for texting while driving/distracted driving?

digitalSoup Unsigned Spotlight (Dinner Music):

Wannacries is a hardrock band based in Stockholm, Sweden. It was formed by two IT guys who, one day in 2017, decided to start a band together. They had both been playing music in different shapes and forms for 20+ years. Daniel handles the bass and sings/screams in the microphone. Per is the guitar hero and studio genius.

The name started as a joke when they needed a name for the first gig. The ransomware WannaCry was in it’s prime and the name stuck, so they kept it. Wannacries are influenced by classic rock acts such as Rolling Stones and Black Sabbath as well as modern bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour. Their trademarks are fast and catchy songs with a sharp, modern guitar sound. Since the release of their debut EP the songs have been played on a number of internet radio stations and Spotify playlists.

They released their first EP Deadline King in January 2018. It has two original songs and two covers given the Wannacries treatment.
