The Precarious Hysteria of TV Fandom

ENTERTAINMENT-GEEKLY

Fans are awful. I don’t mean fans of any one particular TV show or movie franchise or literary saga or videogame cycle. I mean like the whole contemporary idea of fandom is one of the signature annoying facts of life in the modern age. Fans are passionate and angry and incoherent; fans always know everything, always more than you. They even know more than the people who make the freaking things that fans are fans of. George Lucas, Damon Lindelof, George R. R. Martin — fans create gods and then fans destroy their own gods.

Fans love everything unless they hate something, and when that happens fans can hate with the kind of unblinking blood rage that our ancestors reserved for tribal warfare and boy-band debates. I’m generalizing, but I’m also being very accurate. At the extreme, if you want to argue with a fan about their favorite thing, it inevitably goes something like this:

You: [Reasoned, thoughtful contention implying that the thing they like is not perfect.]
Fan: Shut up.

Jack Osbourne and his wife lose their baby

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jack Osbourne and wife Lisa have lost their baby.

The blogger, 26, who was in her second trimester, shared the sad news early Friday morning.

“I have been dreading this announcement,” she writes on her blog, Raddest Mom. “I needed some time before being able to say it. Jack and I lost our baby boy last week.”

She continued, “Having a late term miscarriage is by far the hardest thing either of us have ever had to go through. We appreciate all of your prayers and ask for privacy and respect during this time. It’s important to stay hopeful and optimistic through life’s toughest moments. We never know why things like this happen. All we can do is trust in God and know he has a plan for our lives.”

Two hours after the announcement, Lisa Tweeted, “Cuddling my amazing, sweet hubby and shutting my eyes. Thank you all for the love and support. It means the world.”

The pair had been in the midst of much happy news as of late. “I am feeling great and trying not to eat everything in sight,” Lisa told PEOPLE last month.

Earlier this week, Jack, 27 — who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012 — was named to the cast of Dancing with the Stars, beginning its season Sept. 16.

The couple were married in Hawaii last October and are parents to daughter Pearl Clementine, 16 months.

Jade Ewen: "Sugababes ended 2 years ago"

Sugababes singer Jade Ewen has confirmed to Digital Spy that the band "fizzled out" two years ago, saying: "I don't feel comfortable lying."
Ewen told us last month that the group are "pretty much done", but bandmate Amelle Berrabah claimed afterwards that they will all be "getting back together at the end of next year".

Speaking at the National Lottery Stars gala tonight (September 5), Ewen insisted that Sugababes have indeed split up and continuing to claim otherwise is "unfair to fans".

"This is a tricky one because I don't feel comfortable lying, saying we're in the studio recording and we're going to bring music out next year, which seems to be the favoured line," she said. "I think it's unfair to fans and we should be honest.

"The band being over is definitely not my choice. I kind of was unlucky in that I came in to towards the end of the cycle when things naturally came to the end. There was so much drama surrounding the group, I think the music just got lost. I don't like all the drama and the negativity. We kind of fizzled out about two years ago."

Ewen also accepted that the numerous lineup changes "obviously" contributed to the downfall of Sugababes.

"I do think the lineup changes have obviously got to be a factor, you can't get away from it," she said. "I'd be lying if I didn't think the same when I was approached. I was like, 'Is this going to work? Are people going to accept it?'

"But I know it's a brand and the music industry isn't necessarily about making music."

In "No Sh*t" News....Y'all Aren't Watching Luther On BBC America.



As I said to me S&A cohorts, it doesn't appear that the Stateside audience for the acclaimed BBC series Luther (starring Idris Elba) is as strong as I thought it would be by now, halfway through its 3rd season, especially given the excitement generated over the series, across the blogosphere - specifically the black blogosphere.

Or is the excitement over Idris Elba, and not necessarily the series he stars in? Isn't this the kind of TV content a lot of us have been asking for?

The numbers for Tuesday's season 3 premiere episode are out, and they aren't as impressive as I expected them to be.


206,000 viewers tuned in on Tuesday night at 10pm, to watch the return of the *mental* detective. While it's a healthy increase from the 168,000 who tuned in to watch Luther’s season 2 debut, I guess I just expected the numbers this year to be much higher than 206,000 viewers - especially when compared to the series' season 3 premiere in the UK in July. 5 million UK viewers tuned in, compared to the 206,000 Stateside! Although that 5 million in the UK was actually the lowest for a season premiere in the show’s 3-season history - some 600,000 viewers less than the last episode which aired in 2011.

So while viewership in the UK fell, it actually rose here in the USA, which is good I suppose. However, I'm not pleased with that 206,000 figure. As I said, I expected more. Certainly not 5 million, but a lot more than 206,000. If Tyler Perry's The Haves & The Have Nots can attract a record 2.6 million viewers during its season finale earlier this week, on the OWN network, surely, Luther can do better than 10% of what Perry's series did?

Collapse )

source

The obvious argument is people already watched it on streaming sites when it aired in the UK. Personally, I think the US audience aren't checking for Idris as much as they pretend they are, if that makes any sense. Reminds me of when he won the golden globe and a room full of people that would claim The Wire as one of the their favourite shows, best show on Tv etc...all kinda looked like "who?".

The hauntingly beautiful "No One Knows Who We Are" features classical elements, and "LAX to JFK" opens with dramatic, Inception-esque strings. Kaskade also sings as lead vocalist for the first time on "Atmosphere."

"It's not necessarily about being a singer – it's more about just catching the idea of the song," Kaskade told Rolling Stone last June. "I'm not gonna go on American Idol or anything like that. But for me, the time was right, and it was the right song for me to sing."

Charlie Hunnam's Best Sex Scenes

Charlie Hunnam Cast in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’: A History of His Sex Scenes

Charlie Hunnam, the swashbuckling Brit best known for his role on the gritty FX drama Sons of Anarchy, will play the man of your mother’s dirty dreams in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation. He’s been cast as Christian Grey, wealthy entrepreneur and sexual sensei to young Anastasia Steele, who will be played by Dakota Johnson.

This is all to say that we will soon be seeing Charlie Hunnam have sex. Lots of sex. Lots of kinky sex. He will say things like, “Show me how you pleasure yourself … keep still … let’s see if we can make you come like this … you’re so deliciously wet.” We will blush. Also, we will love it.

Typically, when an actor is cast in the film adaption of a hit novel, the book’s fans are stuck with only the whims of their imaginations to picture what he will look like acting out his role. But thanks to Hunnam’s sex-heavy filmography, Fifty Shades enthusiasts get to preview the actor in all his bare-naked glory. From Queer as Folk to Sons of Anarchy, it’s almost as if Hunnam’s been preparing to play Christian Grey his entire career.

What’s in store when Hunnam stars in Fifty Shades of Grey? Here’s a tour through some of his finest sex work.

Some random beats Emma Watson and Bella Heathcote for lead role





Neither Emma Watson nor Bella Heathcote ends up snatching the female lead role in "The Secret Service" after all. After considering the two actresses, director Matthew Vaughn has changed his mind and cast a newcomer instead. Variety reports that Sophie Cookson has landed the coveted role in the spy movie.
Cookson will team up with another fresh face, Taron Egerton, who takes the male lead. This is not the first time though Vaughn opts for newcomers as he previously cast then-relatively unknown Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz for "Kick-Ass". With Johnson and Moretz now being top stars, Vaughn surely hopes Cookson and Egerton will be the next.
Dubbed a 21st century 007, "The Secret Service" is based on the Mark Millar comic books. It is about a veteran secret agent who takes a young upstart under his wing. Colin Firth will play the mentor of Egerton's character, with Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine taking supporting roles.
There are also rumored cameo appearances from Adele, David Beckham and Taylor Swift, who is said to "have martial arts training in order to convincingly kick Samuel L. Jackson's butt" and reportedly "is also looking forward to working with David Beckham whom she thinks is amazing looking, but taken."

Sarah Silverman's Dog, Duck, Passed Away




Sarah Silverman's dog Duck passed away this week. He was on her show, The Sarah Silverman Program, and a constant face on her instagram account. She shared her thoughts on her WhoSay account, seen below:

----------

I wrote an obituary type thing:

Duck “Doug” Silverman came into my life about 14 years ago. He was picked up by the State running through South Central with no collar, tags or chip. Nobody claimed or adopted him so a no-kill shelter took him in. That’s where I found him — at that shelter, in Van Nuys. Since then we have slept most every night together (and many lazy afternoons.) When we first met, the vet approximated his age at 5 ½ so I’d say he was about 19 as of yesterday, September 3, 2013.

He was a happy dog, though serene. And stoic. And he loved love.

Over the past few years he became blind, deaf, and arthritic. But with a great vet, good meds, and a first rate seeing-eye person named me, he truly seemed comfortable.

Recently, however, he stopped eating or drinking. He was skin and bones and so weak. I couldn’t figure out this hunger strike. Duck had never been political before. And then, over the weekend, I knew. It was time to let him go.

RUMOR: Katee Sackhoff In Talks To Play Captain Marvel



In what would likely be the no-brainer casting move of the decade, Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff is rumored to be in talks to play the newest Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers.

There’s not a lot to go on just yet, beyond Marvel Studios President Louis D’Esposito saying in an interview with Superhero Hype that Marvel is keen on making a movie with a female lead character, even mentioning Captain Marvel by name. Also, Sackhoff told the hosts of the Schmoes Know podcast that “there’s some stuff going on” between her and Disney, namely the company checking into her availability for early 2014.

Maybe that presages a Captain Marvel appearance in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, or maybe it just means Disney’s hoping to snag her as the voice of a mysterious helicopter in Planes 2: Enter the Chopper (a title I hope the Planes sequel actually has). It’s all pretty hazy right now.

But it’d be pretty, pretty great to have the woman who was Starbuck play Carol Danvers, wouldn’t it?

AARON HERNANDEZ PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO MURDER


FALL RIVER, Mass. -- Six times on Friday a Superior Court clerk read a charge against Aaron Hernandez and asked for his plea, and six times the former New England Patriots tight end answered strongly:

"Not guilty."

Hernandez pleaded not guilty to the murder of his friend, 27-year-old semipro football player Odin Lloyd, and five accompanying weapons charges at his arraignment for an indictment handed down by a Fall River grand jury two weeks ago.

Hernandez, who will seek bail at an Oct. 9 hearing, will remain held in a Bristol County correctional facility, where he has been since his arrest on June 26. When Hernandez originally was charged, a Bristol County District Court judge ordered him held without bail, citing the seriousness of the charges and the convincing evidence.

Hernandez's attorneys will attack the circumstantial evidence against their client at the bail hearing next month, but bail is unlikely with other shooting investigations -- with possible links to Hernandez -- pending.

Still, Hernandez's attorneys, who has previously vowed that he would be "exonerated," asked the public not to jump to conclusions. The information and evidence that has been released on this case has all been one-sided and untested, they said.

"Not one shred of evidence has been presented (in court) yet," Hernandez attorney Charles Rankin said. He likened an arraignment to "a kickoff" in a football game.

If so, Hernandez's attorneys find themselves quickly behind in the score, and the prosecution points could keep piling up.

Liam Hemsworth found Miley VMA Performance "mortifying" and wants "clean break"

Miley Cyrus may have no problem with her much-talked about performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 25, but one very important person in her life does -- fiance Liam Hemsworth. According to a source close to the actor, the pair is "just weeks away from calling it off permanently."
"He is over her and wants to make a clean break,"
the source tells Us of the Australian hunk. "No more back and forth."

Another insider adds that Hemsworth found Cyrus' performance, in which she rubbed up against Robin Thicke and made crude gestures with a giant foam finger, "mortifying."

Hemsworth, 23, and Cyrus, 20, have been on and off in recent months, and though the young couple reunited on the red carpet on Thursday, Aug. 8, the pair "acted as if they were strangers," a source told Us at the time.

At present, the pair still reside together at Cyrus' home in L.A.'s Toluca Lake, but the pair are more like roommates than lovers, another source notes. "They're not even sleeping in the same room," the source said.

Debbie Harry: I think Gaga has probably been more influenced by Madonna than me.

There have been several platinum blonde singers in popular music: Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Lady Gaga, to name a few. But one woman started it all: Debbie Harry. Her band, Blondie, which is appearing at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q this month, was one of the most influential new wave groups to emerge in the late ’70s with hits like “Call Me” and “Heart of Glass.” With the band’s 40th anniversary coming up in 2014, the group announced it was putting out its 10th album, Ghosts of Download, later this year. At 68 years old, Harry still feels like a rock ‘n’ roll rebel.
What can you tell us about your new album?
We wanted to make a slightly more dance-oriented collection. The Blondie albums traditionally have a wide frame of reference, different styles of music we try to incorporate. On this record we did a lot more collaborating with outside people. It’s kind of textured and interesting in a different way for us.
How do you feel about new female artists who are inspired by you?
I’m sure that they’re lots of girls out there that I’m not aware of. I think that we all build on what we see and what we hear around us. You choose the things that you like and the things that are more instinctive for you. I think Gaga has probably been more influenced by Madonna than me, but then Madonna has said that she was influenced by me. It really is a layering and a building process.
What keeps you inspired to make new music?
I just don’t like living in the past. I really am curious, I guess. I feel comfortable hearing things that I love, but I like being turned on to something new. It’s exciting to me. I don’t always want to be in my comfort zone.
What do you like to do when you visit Austin?
We always try and see the bats come out from under the bridge. I like walking around going to all the vintage stores. I used to play at the Armadillo, and that was always outstanding. I think one of my favorite memories about Austin was the first time I saw Bob Marley and his whole entourage perform in Austin. Everyone was so into Marley and he put on a great show. It was really a long time ago, like in the ’70s.

Phillip Phillips' debut album goes platinum, so how are other singing-show winners doing?



American Idol takes a lot of flack for being past its prime — and given the weak chart performance of its reigning champ, Candice Glover, those criticisms make sense — but make no mistake, the show can still produce stars.

Take Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips: The gravelly-voiced folk-pop singer’s debut album The World from the Side of the Moon was just certified platinum by the RIAA for shipments of one million units. The disc, which was released in November 2012, wasn’t a blockbuster out of the gate. It sold 169,000 in its first week, driven primarily by the success of Phillips’ Olympic anthem “Home,” which sold over 4.6 million copies as a single.

Ariana Grande and Tamar Braxton Albums In Battle For No.1

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ariana Grande and Tamar Braxton are headed for the top spot on the coveted Billboard 200 albums chart, competing for the top selling album in the country.

According to sales projections released Wednesday, "The Way" and "All The Way Home" singers are both set to sell over 100,000 copies in their first week.

With an undeniable voice and overall talent, Ariana Grande is most likely to hit no.1 with projections that her debut, "Yours Truly," will arrive on the charts with 110-115,000 copies sold.

Led by the hit single, "The Way," Grande's "Yours Truly" features collaborations with Big Sean, Mac Miler, MIKA and Nathan Sykes.
With songs like "Love and War," "The One," and "All The Way Home," Tamar Braxton's album, "Love and War" is poised to come in very close to Grande's final total with 105,000-110,000 copies sold.

As seen earlier this year, talents, like K. Michelle, exceeded projections, so anything is possible within the next few days.
Official chart figures and sales figures will be released this time next week.

Update: Ariana Grande's album, "Yours Truly," is now projected to move between 110-120k.

Sons of Anarchy co-star says Charlie Hunnam 'is perfect' for Christian Grey

taryn-manning_612x419
Another day, another celeb reacting to the news that Charlie Hunnam has been cast to play Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. And this time, it’s Hunnam’s former Sons of Anarchy co-star Taryn Manning singing his praises.
When speaking with E! News yesterday, Manning heard the news of Hunnam’s upcoming role for the first time.
“Wait…what? That’s so amazing! Really? Wow! That is total news to me,” Manning said. “I love Charlie. Working on Sons of Anarchy with him, I mean he has a full accent and just watching him act on set, he is amazing.”

But what exactly is it that makes him so amazing? According to Manning, Hunnam is more than just a great actor with a pretty face: “He studies so hard. One time, my mom and I went to breakfast in Hollywood and he was
sitting at the diner all by himself and he was reading a novel for a movie he was about to do based on the novel. He was sitting alone just reading it and, I don’t know, at that moment, I looked at him in a different light. I had already seen him on set so dedicated, and then seeing him sitting alone at breakfast just working on his craft, he is just a true actor.”

However, his dedication to his craft doesn’t mean that he isn’t, you know, really, really pretty. Manning called Hunnam a “total babe,” adding that, “He was so nice to my mom. He stood up to meet her. Just very chivalrous, old-fashioned and great manners. I have nothing but love for him.”
So what does she think of the backlash from fans?
“Do you realize every single woman that is my friend is, like, ‘Tell me everything about Charlie.’ All the time. He is kind of like how girls feel about Eminem or Justin Timberlake. He is just a heartthrob, so I don’t understand why anyone would question that casting decision. And if you watch the show, he is so noble and strong. That’s weird to me. I don’t understand the backlash. I don’t agree. I think he is perfect for that part!”
What do you think, PopWatchers? Should fans listen to Manning and have faith that Hunnam will work hard to become the perfect Christian Grey, or are you still passing around that Matt Bomer petition?

‘Stay out’: Madonna slams US plans for Syria strike

American pop star Madonna has spoken against US President Barack Obama’s plan for a military intervention in Syria. Celebs and designers are striking a pose on the Arab country crisis – ranging from strike support or disapproval to dire provocations.
“US stay out of Syria!” reads a photo of a hand-written message posted on the famous singer’s Instagram page.



In less than 19 hours, Madonna’s appeal garnered about 30,000 ‘likes’ from users of the popular photo-sharing service and sparked a discussion on the page.
Some people did not quite welcome the pop singer’s call, saying that the US should intervene in Syria to stop the Bashar Assad government after an alleged August chemical weapons attack near Damascus. While politicians keep clashing over whether the proof points to the regime or the rebels using toxic chemicals against civilians, some web surfers have already made their verdicts.
“There is good evidence chemical weapons were used, killing hundreds, and the world just let it happen. Someone needs to step in. Otherwise, other nations may use chemical weapons on its citizens knowing they'll get away with it. Now I'm not in favor of war, but I'm in favor of the US going to Syria to stop the regime,” wrote a person named andreaswolke.
“When the Republicans took us to Iraq it was ok but when a Democrat does anything war related it’s not ok? The safety of the planet is on the line,” agreed user amendoros.
Meanwhile, freedomlover88 wants to know why people are not asking any questions as to whether “bombing Syria” will make things any better, how many more victims it could lead to, or which of the sides in Syria is telling the truth about not being behind the chemical weapons use.
Still, some people would prefer celebrities to keep away from politics. “Can someone remind Madonna that her job is just to entertain us please?” commented javitheflyingmonkey.

Alice in Chains Dis Born-Agains in 'The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here' Video

Grunge-metal icons also dropped more laid-back clip for "Voices"



Alice in Chains have released a pair of music videos supporting their latest album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. One clip, for glammy acoustic jam "Voices," plays like a fairly straightforward lyric video. The song's clumsy line of questioning ("Who am I? Is this me?") is highlighted via a series of neon signs that flash throughout a small town at night. In between, we see Alice in Chains give a relatively low-key performance. It's more engaging than, say, the band's fan-sourced lyric video for "Hollow," but it's also nowhere near as elaborate as the official, outer-space-set short they eventually filmed for that single.

Eric Bischoff Working With Nick Carter


TNA News: Eric Bischoff teams up with a Backstreet Boy
Sep 6, 2013 - 01:43 PM

An Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey produced reality show featuring Nick Carter of The Backstreet Boys has been picked up by VH1. Deadline.com reports that the show will chronicle Carter's attempt to make amends with his past as he prepares for his wedding.

Powell's POV: Carter can start his attempts to make amends with me for the role he played in the garbage music that he and the rest of his boy band produced. Actually, it would be pointless. There are some things in life that are simply unforgivable.

Rupert Grint Lined Up for 'Macbeth' Adaptation

TORONTO – U.K. banner Kaleidoscope Film Distribution has struck a deal for worldwide distribution rights to Enemy of Man, a reworking of Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth, which boasts Harry Potter star Rupert Grint as part of the cast.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kaleidoscope will begin pre-sales during the Toronto International Film Festival on the title, which is set to begin filming in January of 2014 and stars Sean Bean as the tragic antihero.

Kaleidoscope will also distribute the title in the U.K.

Also starring alongside Bean and Grint is Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas), Neil Maskell (Kill List) and Joe Gilgun (This is England).

Vincent Regan directs this latest version, billed as a retelling of a timeless tale of war, regicide, betrayal and untimely revenge.

"Although 400 years old, Shakespeare’s work feels truly contemporary," Regan said. "An ambitious childless couple; their longing for family replaced by a chilling pursuit of absolute power. Remaining true to its dark heart, we will strip back the dialogue, crank up the action and produce an atmospheric and blood-soaked chiller."

Is Drake The Next Marvin Gaye?


With the official tracklist for Nothing was the Same revealing song titles like "Tuscan Leather" and "Pound Cake," the world can't wait to hear what Drake has in store on his third album. And since the Toronto rapper has "aspirations of being Marvin Gaye," you'd better believe that this will be a memorable LP — and yes, there will be more singing.

After dropping Take Care, Drake relocated to Los Angeles, where he recorded a bulk of the new album and focused on stepping up his game. "The music that I'm making is more concise, more clear, and I've been able to get my thoughts a lot better on this album," he told MTV News. "Take Care is a great album, but I listened to it and realized where I could do better and I think I've done better on this album."

Drake's most recent single, "Hold On We're Going Home," is a feel-good pop track that he refers to as his "wedding song," and he's warning critics early that there will be more melodic tracks on the album.

"My biggest thing is...if you wanna listen to Drake music for the rest of your life — I welcome it, I want you to listen to it, I want you to be a part of it — just don't ever be surprised when I'm singing or using melody," he said. "I'm doing that on this album. This album is not some straight rap album, I'll never do a straight rap album. That's not how I came into this and that's never what I'll do. I make songs for the people.

"I have aspirations to be Marvin Gaye in the back of my head," he added. "So I just want to sing the world's triumphs and problems on one record and hopefully Nothing was the Same [can be] the soundtrack to their life."

Tila Tequila DRAGS Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano is an Official Syrian War Whore
1378447173869
I am really sad to have to make this announcement about Alyssa Milano being a War Whore, but I call it out the way it is, and this is what she is: A War Whore all while helping to spread further propaganda to the sheeple masses by selling “Sex.” Here are a few reasons why I am highly disappointed about this because:

1. I am tired of seeing some of these “Celebrities” use their name not to spread enlightenment to the masses, but only to further degrade, dumb down all while selling us lies. Alyssa, why did you have to be such a fucking War Whore? At least being a whore is fine as I do not judge since people call me a whore all of the time, but a War Whore? Come on girl… get with the program. People of today are all waking up now. These lame attempts to win over the masses of sheeple will just blow up in your face now. This is not 1984.

Gad’s Hill celebrates official opening of Junior School with special guests (AKA Harry Lloyd)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Gad’s celebrated the official opening of the eagerly-anticipated Junior School today (Wednesday 4thSeptember) with the arrival of some special guests and a glut of local broadcasters and journalists!

The completion of the first phase of a multi-million pound project undertaken by Gad’s to build two new state-of-the-art schools in the grounds of the old house, will increase public access to the historic Gad’s Hill Place.

The Grade One listed Georgian property - where Charles Dickens penned classic novels such as ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ - has been used by the school for teaching since the 1920s.

The past decade has seen a significant period of growth and progress for Gad’s and it is this success that enabled the school to invest in two new school constructions.

The John Melville Building - named after school’s Chair of Governors who, alongside Headmaster David Craggs, has long campaigned for pupils to vacate the historic and increasingly fragile 18th century house – was officially opened by Marion Dickens, Dickens’ great-great-granddaughter and trustee of the charity due to take over Gad’s Hill Place, along with Mr Melville and the Headmaster.

They were joined by current and former pupils and staff, members of the Dickens family, members from local community groups, those involved in the construction and star ofThe Game of Thrones, Robin Hood, the BBC’s adaptation of Great Expectations and Doctor Who, Harry Lloyd.

Harry and his brother Tom, bothgreat-great-great-grandsons of Dickens, entertained the pupils throughout the ceremony, assisting their mother, Marion Dickens, and the Headmaster with media interviews.

Coverage of the ceremony is due to be broadcast on ITV Meridian News this evening (Wednesday 4thSeptember) at 6pm, BBC South East Today at 6.30pm and can also be heard on KMFM and Radio Kent.


I can't embed the video, but here's a link to where he and his mom are interviewed about the house:

Pepsi, GM Bail on Fox's X Factor



After serving as the flagship sponsor of Fox’s The X Factor for its first two seasons—an agreement that included extensive integrations and interactive elements—Pepsi has passed on a third go-around with the show.

Also stepping away from the struggling musical-competition program is General Motors’ Chevrolet marque. (Although they bailed last year)

When Pepsi first signed on as The X Factor’s primary sponsor in March 2011, it ponied up some $60 million for the opportunity. At the time, Simon Cowell’s new show was being touted as the next American Idol, a comparison that would prove to be unfounded. After bowing Sept. 21, 2011, to 12.5 million viewers and a 4.4 rating in the 18-49 demo, Factor failed to build on those results.

Michelle Williams Wants In-Person Chat with Keyshia Cole


Michelle Williams would like a word with Keyshia Cole, and not on Twitter. Williams didn't respond to Cole's negative tweets critiquing her Super Bowl performance, but now that the dust has somewhat cleared, she's ready to get the whole story.

"I don't even do twitter beef," she told Philly's Hot 107.9 PMS Morning Show. "Can't wait to see [Keyshia Cole] in person so we can talk and say, 'Hey, what happened?'"

Before Cole blasted the DC member as "always f---N the groove up," Williams says she was a fan of the Bay Area-born songstress before the drama. "I understood her story and was rooting for her. My little sister was born with crack cocaine in her system, so when I see someone like Keyshia Cole, who is defying the odds, doing things and taking care of her family..."

The Grammy winner added that Cole was someone she was "rooting for," and still wishes her the bet. "I want everybody to win," she said.

Cole however isn't interested in a peace treaty. She responded "that's nice," to a fan tweet about Williams' comments, and reiterated that their rift is deeper than the public knows. "Can't stand when people say things, then act [sic] they never said like they better than everyone else," she tweeted. But all is not lost, Cole is down for a face-to-face adding, "I mean its cool tho. We can link up whnevr."

Benedict Cumberbatch Calls Chelsea Manning Sentence "Devastating"

tumblr_mspsxjRFCR1qdojd4o4_1280
TORONTO — Benedict Cumberbatch gives a nuanced portrayal of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate, which premiered Thursday night at the Toronto International Film Festival, and he has an equally nuanced view of the legal case that sprang from the historic information leak that Assange published to the site.
Asked about the 35-year prison sentence given to Chelsea Manning, the former United States Army soldier who leaked hundreds of thousands of documents from the Afghan and Iraqi Wars, Cumberbatch said, “I wasn’t in the courtroom; I’ve been following it… it’s pretty devastating.”

Bruno Mars expected to headline Super Bowl halftime show 2014


Bruno Mars may have been locked out of heaven, but it's looking like he'll have a ticket to the Super Bowl.

The crooner is expected to be tapped to perform at the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVIII next February, according to two people with knowledge of the matter. An announcement could come as early as this Sunday.

Neither the NFL, which produces the Pepsi-sponsored halftime show, or Fox, which is carrying the Super Bowl this season, would comment. An NFL spokesman would only jokingly say that Janet Jackson and Miley Cyrus have been ruled out as performers.

If he gets the gig, Mars better bring his winter coat or at least a warm sweater. This year's game is being played in the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The New Jersey locale would seem to require a homegrown act. However, Bruce Springsteen has already played the Super Bowl and Bon Jovi is in disarray after the exit of guitarist Richie Sambora from the band.

Mars might not be at the mega-star status of recent headliners like Beyoncé and Madonna, but he’s solidified himself as a scene-stealing performer – as indicated by his recent performances at MTV's Video Music Awards, the Grammys and Billboard Music Awards.

Stephen Colbert slams Fox News host



Stephen Colbert went after Fox News' Eric Bolling for suggesting that the country would be better off if prisoners killed themselves instead of spending taxpayers' dollars.

The Fox News host recently processed news that Ariel Castro, the man convicted of kidnapping and holding three women hostage in Ohio for a decade, hanged himself in prison. Bolling said that the prison system saved an estimated $780,000 — what it would have cost to house Castro through his life sentence.

"That's a good point," Colbert said on Thursday. "Justice is expensive. Imagine how much we could have saved if we never caught him."

He said that the "Bolling Sunshine Express" did not stop there, noting that the Fox News host went on to wonder how much money would be saved if Guantanamo prisoners killed themselves as well.

"And if any of you freeloaders out there need some inspiration, just turn on 'The Five,'" he joked. "Because every time I watch Eric Bolling, I want to kill myself."

Sandra Bullock talks about rejecting "GRAVITY" role and confronting her fears

New York Times - September 6, 2013



BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Like most movie stars, Sandra Bullock has been endlessly sliced into snackable bites by the celebrity media. In Vanity Fair’s estimation, this Oscar-winning actress is “friendly and direct and so unpretentious.” (True.) Ms. Bullock is “America’s sweetheart,” according to dozens of color-by-number profiles, a gifted physical comedian who has suffered the occasional flop. (Fair enough.)

After her 2010 divorce, she briefly got the tabloid treatment, with one overseas outlet publishing an article accompanied by this headline: Sandra Bullock Finally Leaves the House — Looking Like the Witch from She-Ra.” (Extremely doubtful.)

But one of her most noteworthy attributes is almost never mentioned, perhaps because it’s not always easy to notice on camera. You have to peer behind her performances to see that Ms. Bullock, who returns to cinemas on Oct. 4 in the space thriller “Gravity,” is arguably Hollywood’s gutsiest A-list actress.
