MOUTHPIECE - September 8, 2015

Good Afternoon,

I'm think about going on a road trip really soon. I love hitting the road, seeing new sights and eating some of the best food at local joints just off of the highway. They really do have the best stuff to eat.

Be sure to check out the Road Food website, located in the 'What's On The Web?' section, before your next road trip. Your stomach will thank you for it.

Mouthing Off,

If Major Movies Told You What They Were Really About

From No one is going to stand in line for A New Hope During A Star War, right? That's why subtitles exist. They're like a little cheat for filmmakers: When you can't fit it all into one title, just slap a mini-title on your flick and you're golden. Of course, that also means one extra line for Hollywood to trick you into handing them your wallet. Which is why, as a sort of PSA, we tasked our readers with taking some subtitles and revising them for honesty.
