Imagine a social network that was reminiscent of your favorite local dive bar after last call – a social network that let you mingle/connect with other inebriated individuals. A “party” social network if you will. That’s exactly what you have with Livr – a secret social network that only allows access to users that blow over the legal limit.
So you might be wondering, how does this work exactly? Simply download the LIVR app, attach the included breathalyzer, and blow right into the attachment. If you blow over .08 (legally drunk), then you are instantly given access, and that’s where the real magic happens. Once inside, you can play a handful of party games with other drunk LIVR users including “truth or dare,” “drunk dial” random users in hopes of connecting with someone, and even find “hot spots” on the map to keep the party going all night long. Now we all know mistakes can happen after you’ve put down one too many beers, and that’s why LIVR comes with a built-in “Blackout” button to erase all of your previous evening’s escapades.
You had me going for awhile, LivR. Well played, guys. Well played.

"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said. "It’s called ma. Emptiness. It’s there intentionally.”
Is that like the “pillow words” that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?
"I don’t think it’s like the pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it’s just busyness. But if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb.
