Miranda July and Carrie Brownstein Promise a Somebody App That “Works”
Regarding her eccentrically beautiful messaging app Somebody, Miranda July has posted this video with Carrie Brownstein about its v.2. “Over the next few months we will be making Somebody 2.0,” she writes. “It’s just like Somebody 1.0 but it works.”
If you don’t know about Somebody, it’s an iOS app (Android coming, says July in this video) that allows you to send a communication to someone via a nearby third party, who delivers that message in person. Still confused? Well, Somebody was the subject of a new podcast, Reply All — the second from podcasting startup Gimlet Media. Watch above as July answers Brownstein’s questions about the version 2 feature set, and listen below for this:
Sam was at a bookstore when a man he’d never met stopped him to say “I love you.” The strange tale of how a woman in Washington DC who tells her ex in California that she loves him through stocky blond man who neither of them have ever met.
