Why burn regular paper when you can burn 24-karat gold




The $4.60-per-single-leaf papers offer a "premium experience" similar to ordering expensive bottles of alcohol, according to Tyga. Fans of the papers include pop star Miley Cyrus.

"Why burn regular paper when you can burn 24-karat gold?" Tyga said.

Your New Fave Vampire Movie is Slowly Gaining Traction

"A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” is a wildly inventive Iranian vampire movie that grabs you by the throat with its dark, moody style, pulsating soundtrack and offbeat love story.

Director Ana Lily Amirpour won’t win screenplay of the year honors — the plot and the characters are too thinly drawn — but every frame in this spellbinding pulp flick suggests that she is a filmmaker to watch.

The action centers on a young woman (Sheila Vand, very good) who is dining on the lowlifes (i.e. everyone) of Bad City, a wasteland of empty warehouses and barren streets. The only place with a pulse appears to be the nearby refinery.

When she is not out on the town, our vampire heroine sheds her shroud and listens to ’80s Euro pop in her hipster-like abode. She also develops a thing for a Persian heartthrob (Arash Marandi, also very good) who looks as if he just stepped off the set of “Rebel Without a Cause.”

Influenced by spaghetti Westerns, Jim Jarmusch, comic books, Iranian culture, feminism, techno music and who knows what else, the California-based Amirpour blends this mishmash of elements into something we haven’t quite seen before. She also uses L.A. (quite effectively) as a stand-in for Iran, and opts for black and white photography (kudos to cinematographer Lyle Vincent for his outstanding work).

All this may sound outlandish — and it is — but it’s entertaining and provides the tired vampire genre with a welcome infusion of fresh blood.

Youtuber Zoella's New Book Beats JK Rowling Sales Record




- Apparently for a debut book, Zoella's book outsold both JK Rowling's and Dan Brown's debuts.
- She's broken the record for the highest first week sales for a debut author, selling nearly 80,000 copies.
- And also she's been accused of using a ghostwriter, and her publisher has admitted that she "did not write the book on her own". (Not that that's anything nobody didn't know already)

Have any of you bought Zoella's new book, ONTD?

Stephen Rea on The Crying Game’s Surprise Penis




It wasn’t shocking to do. I’m sure everybody that does love scenes tells you: All you’re thinking about is the camera position. So it looks pretty shocking in the movie but it wasn’t shocking to do. The shock for me was when Neil Jordan — before I’d even read a script — I had dinner with him and he said, "Do you want to do this movie?" And he explained the whole story to me, and then says, "And then they go back to her apartment and she undresses and she’s a guy." I immediately said, "I’ll do it," because I was aware of what the impact of it was. But it was quite daring at the time. I must say, I don’t think I’d ever seen a penis on a screen before.

Somebody said to me, "Look, no matter if [Dil was] a guy or a girl, if this guy was in love with you, why was his penis not erect?" Of course the thing was, you wouldn’t be allowed an erect penis [on film]. You were allowed a penis, but not an erect penis. A lot of men will tell you, sadly, it isn’t always erect when it’s supposed to be [laughs], but anyway, that’s just a technicality. Most people were just shocked at the presence of the penis, not whether or not it was aroused.

Teen Wolf's #2 Mom is Problematic

Teen Wolf parent, killed off in s2, Eaddy Mays is just as messy as ONTD fav Ian Bohen, only this time instead of women, it regards the POC actors on the show that have been killed. Also, this has been going on since sometime in October during the questioning about the women/POC characters being killed off on the show.

  • Fan questioned her about how she felt about the women/POC specifically getting killed off on the show at a convention

  • Eaddy was like "w/e man, shit  happens -- not Jeff's friend though. I'm not defending anyone... but I'm totally defending Jeff"

  • Eaddy sent the fan an ask, stating this: But here's the thing: "Jeff's not my "friend" he was my boss. So many are blaming him for the death of young females & it's simply not accurate. And calling into question my care & concern for young women is also based on misinformation..." (then who killed everyone bro?)

  • She then made a post on her tumblr using a MLK quote, and how she is willing to take this anonymous fan to court due to spreading lies, ~abusing~ her nonexistant image and threatening her online/offline (to which there is no real knowledge of it)

src, src

mods, Eaddy's tumblr is her official tumblr. The other is the fan who she sent messages to and is threatening to take to court if she doesn't stop


ontd: have you been personally victimized by Eaddy May's or anyone else from Teen Wolf?

Canadian Comic Receives Death Threats

surgar-sammy-ad
sugar-sammy-after-office-de-la-langue-francaise

(Montreal) Quebec comedian Sugar Sammy performed under police protection at Sherbrooke University Thursday night after a death threat was called in prior to his performance. Audience members had their bags checked at the door, and police escorted him out of town after the performance.
Sugar Sammy is provocative in his performances, especially towards the language laws in Quebec. His latest advertising signs pushed a lot of buttons.
In any advertising within the province, French must be dominant. He has deliberately tweaked the noses of the language police with his latest promo ads which featured him asking for a citation from the same language office, in English.
A complaint was promptly filed by lawyer Francois Cote, who opined that in public, French is permissible, but the English language should be for "the private sphere".
Sugar Sammy was born and raised in Quebec.
