Sci-Fi Short Film “Capsules" | DUSTIn a not so distant future, humans must take pharmaceuticals to feel any emotion at all. This is the story about two people who have been prescribed to take the next step in their relationship. Subscribe to the DUST Newsletter: https://bit.ly/signal_newsletter "Capsules" by Burton Chaikin #DUST #scifi #shortfilm More About Capsules: In a not so distant future, humans must take pharmaceuticals to feel any emotion at all. Every morning, individuals wake up and begin their days by scanning their ﬁngerprint in order to accurately measure the necessary personalized dosage levels of happiness, courage, anxiety, fear, motivation, and so on. We ﬁnd ourselves with Claire and Owen, a seemingly happy couple who want to take the next step in their relationship by prescribing themselves the ultimate emotion: Love. In this dystopian future, partners must have their compatibility assessed in order to conﬁrm that the prescriptions will work to their fullest potential. At the start, the pills work exactly as expected for Claire and Owen—they couldn’t be more in love with each other. But as their relationship advances, Claire begins to realize the effects are fading for her alone. She attempts to consume more and more of this powerful emotion, but is only becoming less and less affected by her partner. Owen, meanwhile, could not be more in love. She goes back to the pharmacy to ask what could be going wrong, but to no avail. When she ultimately decides to stop taking the pills, Owen--so overwhelmed by his unreciprocated love--tries to force her to do so. She ﬁghts back, and in doing so, gains a new understanding of the power of love—a power that existed long before it was packaged into capsules.

'Forbes' Names Kanye West The Highest Paid Musician Of 2020The saga of Kanye West and Forbes' love-hate relationship continues! A little over a month ago, Forbes officially declared him a billionaire after a solid year of Kanye trying to get them to recognize him as Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West. (He was still mad, because he says he's actually worth $3 billion.) And now, Forbes has named him the highest paid musician of 2020. Kanye apparently raked in a pre-tax income of $170 million, mostly from Yeezy's deal with Adidas, putting him at the #2 spot on the magazine's annual list of the highest-paid celebrities behind his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner and her staggering $590 million. Kanye is the only musician in the top 10, which is rounded out by Roger Federer, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Tyler Perry, Neymar, Howard Stern, LeBron James, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The next highest paid musician is Elton John at #14 with $81 million. Ariana Grande pulled in $72 million, the Jonas Brothers $68.5M, the Chainsmokers $68M, and Ed
