ABC slammed for exposing children to steamy Scandal bedroom scene < 26 seconds after Charlie Brown



The Parents Television Council president Tim Winter said in a statement:

"Shame on ABC for putting a peep show next to a playground. In less than 26 seconds we were taken from the Peanuts pumpkin patch to a steamy Scandal sex scene. Twenty-six seconds, boom. Unless parents had the remote control in their hand, thumb on the button and aimed directly at the TV screen, they didn’t have a chance. Such a transition is grossly irresponsible by the network and entirely unfair for parents. ABC owes families an apology."

"The juxtaposition of a reliably classic family-friendly children’s cartoon special like the Great Pumpkin –a huge family draw every year for decades – with such a graphic bedroom scene is unjustifiable."

Lemony Snicket's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' confirmed for Netflix series






- Netflix wanted to bring a series for both parents and kids. Nothing set yet (no air/broadcast date, cast, anything yet)
- From author Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler) lmao: “I can’t believe it,” Snicket said, from an undisclosed location. “After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books.”
- Pretty sure Jim Carrey won't be a part of this.

Do You Sound Like Kim Kardashian? NO JOB FOR YOU!

kim k

Apparently saying things like - I do not like big balls on a dog - is not the only problem with sounding like a Kardashian.

Florida Atlantic University conducted a study that found people who speak like Kim Kardashian and use vocal fry are deemed less hirable. The creaky-voice habit can cost you a job opportunity because its associated with being incompetent.

FYI - Vocal fry was once considered a speech disorder.

At least Britney makes that shit work.

Meghan Trainor gets sent to a galaxy far, far away

Meghan Trainor’s song "All About That Bass" is so catchy and addicting to listen to. Nerdist presents a Team Unicorn music video parody that mixes in Star Wars references called "All About That Base: No Rebels."

Team Unicorn is not the first to make a Star Wars parody using that hook. Youtube user Liminal Jay created a music video parody three days before Halloween. Team Unicorn did a much better job in my opinion in terms of lyrics, dancing, costumes, and references to both the original music video and Star Wars.

Details about the music video via Nerdist:

Meghan Trainor’s sassy “All About That Bass” has taken a trip to the galaxy far, far away in our latest Nerdist Presents: a new Team Unicorn music video! The Unicorns have dressed in Empire attire, brought in dancing stormtroopers and astromechs, added some Darth Sidious, and made the popular song an Imperial anthem. My inner Rebel is crying, but I can’t blame anyone for liking the Empire. They do have much better costumes… and Sith.

Team Unicorn channeled some of Trainor’s dance moves from the “All About That Bass” video and added their own unique touches. Plus, come on, Darth Vader-inspired outfits automatically make any choreography better. The lyrics are peppy and will likely get stuck in your head for the rest of the day.

The galactic parody was written by Blake Rodgers and stars Clare Grant, Rileah Vanderbilt, Milynn Sarley, and Alison Haislip, with a cameo from LeeAnna Vamp. Keep up with all things Team Unicorn on Twitter!

Marvel Gives Jack "The past 40 years of comics history wouldn't have happened without" Kirby Credit

The world's greatest comic book creator Jack 'The King of Comics' Kirby has finally made it into the credits pages of Marvel comics with no help from charlatan and glory-hound Stan ‘Funky Flashman’ Lee. 

jack-kirby
The new creator credit has been added to several in-publication Marvel comics and is part of an agreement between Marvel and Kirby’s children over the copyrights to 45 characters that Kirby created and co-created – including the X-Men, the Avengers, and Captain America. The creator credit is a step in "honoring Mr. Kirby's significant role in Marvel's history."

Kirby was an American comic book artist, writer and editor, who is rightly regarded by historians and fans as being the creative engine (albeit not the face) of Marvel Comics in the Silver Age. His unparalleled creative dynamism and work ethic earned him the nickname 'The King'. In 1985, artist Gil Kane remarked that "Jack was the single most influential figure in the turnaround in Marvel's fortunes... It wasn't merely that Jack conceived most of the characters that are being done, but ... Jack's point of view and philosophy of drawing became the governing philosophy of the entire publishing company and, beyond the publishing company, of the entire field... Jack was like the Holy Scripture and they simply had to follow him without deviation." Kirby considered his DC published Fourth World series "New Gods", a multi-part epic he drew, wrote and edited, to be his magnum opus.

 His influence has long been recognizable in the works of various notable creators such as Mike Mignola, Alan Moore, Brad Bird, Michael Chabon, Mike Wieringo, Mark Waid, Karl Kesel, Joss Whedon and Chris Claremont. Kirby's legacy is not just the dynacism he brought to comics  can also be spotted in other areas

 Tireless self-promoter Lee (of "Stan Lee's Striperella" fame) has yet to comment (to my
 knowledge).

hope i paraphrased enuf this time...

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW - Sarah Paulson answers things - VIEWING/DISCUSSION POST

Previously on American Horror Story: Freak Show.....So like, right now for example. The Freaks are in America. But some people are all, "What about the two headed girls? That’s a bit much.” Well it's like when I had this garden party for the leader lady of the Freaks Elsa, right? I put R.S.V.P. 'cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some normal common folk type of people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin'. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, hide the chains and S&M gear and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day Elsa was like, the more the merrier. And so if the Freaks could just get to the stage, rearrange some things and let the lobster boy just stay out of the closet they could certainly party with the common folk. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty?!



I'm drunk and I tried.

In all seriousness though, Sarah Paulson discusses working on the new season, the challenges she's facing, things she keeps in the fridge, being a narcissist and who her favourite twin is.

In Defense of Grease 2
+ fun facts you might not have known


Trivia Time:

Patricia Birch was the dance choreographer for the original Grease (1978). Publicity for this sequel stated that it was the first time a female choreographer had become a film director. This movie was her directorial debut, and her only theatrical film directing credit.  She only had 58 days to shoot and had to work with an unfinished script,  Which is why Frenchie disappears halfway through the movie.  The character was written out halfway through filming and Didi Conn was told she wasn't needed anymore (mess).

Several scenes were cut from the film, including:
-Frenchy trying to help Michael become a "cool rider"
-Michael talking to Stephanie and comforting her after the talent show
-Goose accidentally slamming a door into Rhonda's nose (kept the line tho omg she got a nose job!)
-Davey helping Dolores stuff her bra at the luau so that she can be dating material for him (eww)
-Michael and Stephanie fly off into the sunset on a motorcycle, similar to the ending of "Grease", where Danny and Sandy fly off into the sunset in a car.

The original title was "Son of Grease" and John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John were asked to reprise their roles but nothing came of it after the first meeting.  The producers changed the title to "Grease 2" and Max Caulfield tried to change it back because he thought "Grease 2" sounded boring.

Jeff Conaway was originally going to have a cameo as the Bowling Alley Manager. The idea was scrapped (boo).

Originally planned to be the second installment in a franchise of four movies and a TV series. Once the movie flopped, plans for a franchise were thrown out.

Like any good leads, Max Caulfield and Michelle Pfeiffer didn't like each other during filming.  Caulfield said they got along "infamously" and Michelle called him "self-adoring".  With that face tho, I don't blame him.

Despite all those problems and more, it is still a masterpiece

Here's why:

David O'Russell quit his latest crap movie and its so bad its only being released in the UK



Everyone's favorite overrated, douchebag filmmaker David O'Russell has a currently unreleased and not totally finished film titled Nailed... but you can't see it unless you're a not-so-lucky filmgoer in the UK.
This comedic project stars Jessica Biel as a waitress living life in poverty who somehow gets a nail stuck in her head. She then decides to go to Washington DC and fight for her rights to medical care due to this bizarre incident, in which she then meets a Congressman played by Jake Gyllenhaal. These two will no doubt fight, bicker, and then have sex together in the film because Hollywood never puts two people that good looking in a movie without them simulating the swapping of bodily fluids at some point.

Unfortunately, the movie was either so terrible to work on or O'Russell was such a prick on set (OR BOTH) that financing became a huge problem once the cameras were rolling. Being the upstanding beacon of directorial stability that he is, David O'Russell quit the film before a some majorly important scenes were shot. Quitters never win, David.

Since the producers and the studio Arrow Films need to recoup money from this bomb any way they can, Producer Kia Jam hired someone edit this movie despite the footage being in shambles. The films title also has been changed to Politics of Love- but it will only be released in the UK and there are no current plans to release it in America. Why? This is probably because any attempts to sell the film domestically on O'Russell's name and dubious Oscar nominated pedigree would result in no invitation for him at Harvey Weinstein's Holiday Party.

D&D give a bullshit excuse for Bran not being in Season 5


Basically they're saying that they decide to exclude Bran because he's caught up to his ADWD material, and they feel like adapting his TWOW material onscreen in season 5 would make him too ahead of other characters' which wouldn't sync well. They also think that showing Bran's training onscreen would be "not cinematic".

Which is all BS because:

-Sansa is also caught up to her AFFC material, but she's gonna be in the next season.

-They've given Yara/Asha a scene in Seasons 3-4 even though she had no book material in ASOS.

Leighton Meester talks fame, music, touring... + LIFE PARTNERS featurette.


ICYMI, actress/elusive chanteuse Leighton Meester released her well-received debut LP last week, without much fanfare, amid the chaos of a certain other album release. However, Meester did do some interviews with Elle Canada, Refinery29, TeenVogue, and MadeMan discussing her music comeback -- here are the highlights:

On dealing with the pressures of public life: "Maybe it’s because I’m getting older, but the ‘Hey, can I have a picture or an autograph?’ is not exciting to me at all. It’s almost weird at this point. The more comfortable I am with myself and happy with my real life, the more I realize that all that stuff isn’t really real. It’s really confusing. I know that people like me because they like the art that I do, and that’s amazing, but they don’t know me—they don’t know the bad things about me." [Elle Canada]
