J.K. Rowling updates about Draco Malfoy's bio, is unnerved by fangirls but praises Tom Felton




Highlights:

J.K. Rowling: For all this, Draco remains a person of dubious morality in the seven published books, and I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character (although I do not discount the appeal of Tom Felton, who plays Draco brilliantly in the films and, ironically, is about the nicest person you could meet).

Draco has all the dark glamour of the anti-hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people. All of this left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers’ daydreams as I told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering and prejudice and that no, he and Harry were not destined to end up best friends.

Las Vegas airport protects families and children from sexy Heidi Klum ads



These Sharper Image ads featuring supermodel Heidi Klum were deemed to have violated county codes for advertisements that prohibit “the showing of the female breast with less than a fully opaque covering or any portion thereof below the nipple.”

The ad agency's Chief Marketing Officer Dari Marder told Yahoo: “We believe the campaign is tasteful, beautiful, and while sexy, not inappropriate in any way.” (The edited version of these ads has been approved and travelers will be able to see them at McCarran International Airport from January 3-9.)

McCarran spokeswoman Christine Crews told the source: “While we are in Las Vegas, there are families that come through the airport and there are children that come through the airport. County codes are in place to serve the interests of everyone.”

The Musketeers Series 2 Roundup: Two Trailers + the Premiere Dates











In true haphazard BBC style, The Musketeers' Series 2 premiere has been moved up from the tentative February release date -- which was hinted at a few months ago -- to January 2nd for British fans, January 4th for Australians and January 17th for Americans.

But really January 2nd for anyone who knows how the internet works.

The trailer above hints at much of what creator Adrian Hodges had promised over the Summer -- namely that the show's post-watershed timeslot would make for sexier and more violent viewing than the previous series. Which we can only hope doesn't mean a GoT-style boobfest, because surely nobody thinks anyone is watching this show for anything but the mancandy.

The spoilery BBC America trailer (below) offers a little more of the newer, sexier content with some gently wafting curtains surrounding

[Spoiler (click to open)]the show's boring OTP, Constance and D'Artagnan. I can't actually view it because I'm up here in Canada enjoying freedom, but if you can watch it, please do enjoy on my behalf:

George R.R. Martin offers to publicly screen 'The Interview'

You can add George R. R. Martin to the ever growing list of people who think that Sony made a bad decision in pulling The Interview from a theatrical release. While there are currently conflicting reports as to how and when the film will be released online for free the A Song of Ice and Fire author believes that Sony was wrong by saying they had no choice to pull the film.

In a recent post over at grrm Martin stated that he believes Sony should still release the film on Christmas Day as originally planned and offered up the the theatre that he owns as a venue to do so.

"I have been in communication with the owners and operators of other independent cinemas and arthouses, and representatives of some of the smaller chains, and I know that hundreds of these venues would gladly screen this film, if only Sony will make it available," Martin wrote. "Regal and AMC and the megaplexes may have caved, but the independents have not. Sony could have the film on five hundred screens by Christmas, if it wants to. And I would love for the Jean Cocteau to be one of them."

I know that he feels strongly about this but him chiming in just makes me think of his books. Like the trailers end, the lights dim and the auditorium doors close...

Another (expanded) interview with NEGLECTED Homeland bae Raza Jaffrey




Another December, another Homeland season over, so let's look at what the hottest guy that Homeland has ever had has to say about last night's episode.

On the finale, Raza said: “By episode 12 there are revelations certainly about some of the characters’ personal lives which goes in a different direction again. They keep us guessing on that show, they manage it for the audience and the cast by giving us the scripts late.”

Raza also talked about his character Aasar Khan, saying that “With a show like Homeland you put your trust in the writers and hope they will write for you, and they absolutely have. He isn’t a kind of caricature of what it is to be in the ISI. When I first met for the role, they knew they wanted this chap to have been educated in the UK but then to have taken up a role in Pakistan and to be someone who could potentially be a politician as well.

"And beyond that it was kind of left open as to where the character was going, so it has evolved and it’s been lovely playing such a complicated character. It was hard to know which side Khan was really on, but he’s just caught between two worlds.


“Homeland is a show I knew before I started, I’d seen the first season and not much more, so I had no idea with being in the States for the past two years what kind of a following it had back in the UK. So seeing what the reaction has been like has been terrific.

Read the rest of the interview here.

What did y'all think of the finale??

[Spoiler (click to open)]I HATED IT. BOOOO NO KHAN. No seriously. I will rage if he doesn't come next year. This is twice this fucking show has trolled me in one entire season. First Corey now Raza. Yes I do watch this show like a soap opera, why do you ask??

Also I am NHF Carrie/Quinn. The only interesting bit was the Dar Adal/Saul reveal.

How Celebrity Gossip Websites Create Buzz and Discussion


by Jessica Williams for Wired Magazine

Every day when I wake up, I check Instagram. Then I look at Twitter to see what the One Directioners are talking about. I check Facebook to see how everybody from high school's doing. I go on Reddit to see what my weirdos are talking about. Then I go on Tumblr to see what my feminists are talking about.

But there's something missing in all this new new media craziness, and that is something that uses celebrity news as a way to get into a really serious analysis of our culture. The Kardashians are walking clickbait—but let's look closer. Do Kim and Kanye affect how society feels about interracial relationships and blended families? What does our obsession with Jennifer Lawrence say about third-wave feminism? Start with a headline that's superjuicy; a flashy, sexy picture. And then, after the first couple of lines, hit them with some really severe analysis. When they think they're getting dirt, we give them vegetables. Which is kind of what The Daily Show does already.

Krysten Ritter talks Marvel's 'AKA Jessica Jones'

"I don't think I've been so hooked on something since Serial."





"I remember six years ago I was like, 'I just want to work with female directors and female showrunners; there's none." And I feel like, since then, I've exclusively worked with women, which I love. I worked with Amy Heckerling, Kat [Coiro], Jessica Goldberg, Leslye Headland, Nahnatchka Khan, the creator of Don't Trust the B--, who is my idol and bar for anything funny. And now Melissa [Rosenberg, the showrunner for AKA Jessica Jones]! It's a dream come true."

Actor compares the gays from Modern Family to Blackface


Tuc Watkins (Bob the gay neighbor/ lawyer from Desperate Housewives) stated on his Facebook:

Hmm. I think “Modern Family” is clever, hilarious, even terrifically subtle at times. But, for the most part, I have a hard time laughing at the gay guys. In fact, I kinda cringe. It feels a little bit like the gay equivalent of “blackface.” It doesn’t feel “modern” at all. Sure, people come in all shapes, sizes, etc. So why are we fed such 80s stereotypes every week?

Austrian composer and singer Udo Jürgens dies, aged 80



The Austrian singer-songwriter Udo Jürgens, whose songs enjoy immense popularity in the German-speaking world and beyond, has died aged 80. His career spanned more than fifty years.
Jürgens died of heart failure on Sunday while taking a walk in the Swiss municipality of Gottlieben, his management team said. He was 80 years old.

Jürgens, who also took Swiss citizenship in 2007, wrote some 1,000 songs and sold more than 100 million records in a career that began more than 50 years ago. He was one of the most successful figures ever in the German-speaking world of popular music, but also had fans in countries such as Japan and South Africa.

Jürgens won the Eurovision song contest in 1966, a feat not repeated by an Austrian until Conchita Wurst took first place in the competition in 2014.

Supercreep Dov Charney: Near Broke, Sleeping on Friend's LES Couch

screen shot 2014-12-22 at 12.34.07 pm

Okay, he's not quite broke YET, but according to his interview with Bloomberg, he's down to his last $100,000 and is suing EVERYBODY, so bye to his last dollars.

He made $800k a year for about a decade, and American Apparel is a multi-million dollar company. So where did his money go? Charney claims the hedge fund Standard General fucked him over. Let this be a lesson to you: If you have a shit ton of money, don't put it all in one place. Jesus Christ. Diversify your portfolio, for fuck's sake!!

Bryan Konietzko: Korrasami is canon.



Bryan Konietzko, best known as the co-creator and executive producer of the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, posted a letter on his tumblr about Korrasami.

Korrasami is canon.

You can celebrate it, embrace it, accept it, get over it, or whatever you feel the need to do, but there is no denying it. That is the official story. We received some wonderful press in the wake of the series finale at the end of last week, and just about every piece I read got it right: Korra and Asami fell in love. Were they friends? Yes, and they still are, but they also grew to have romantic feelings for each other.

ETA: Michael Dante DiMartino did the same:

Korrasami Confirmed

[...] Our intention with the last scene was to make it as clear as possible that yes, Korra and Asami have romantic feelings for each other. The moment where they enter the spirit portal symbolizes their evolution from being friends to being a couple. Many news outlets, bloggers, and fans picked up on this and didn’t find it ambiguous. For the most part, it seems like the point of the scene was understood and additional commentary wasn’t really needed from Bryan or me. But in case people were still questioning what happened in the last scene, I wanted to make a clear verbal statement to complement the show’s visual one. I get that not everyone will be happy with the way that the show ended. Rarely does a series finale of any show satisfy that show’s fans, so I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the positive articles and posts I’ve seen about Korra’s finale.

'Wonder Woman' doesn't actually have a script, release date, or greenlight



In an interview with New York Magazine, Wonder Woman director Michelle MacLaren revealed that the film isn't as far along as you might assume. According to MacLaren, the previously announced film doesn't yet have a script, a firm release date, or even an official green light from Warner Bros:

"I really, ­really, really can’t talk about this. I just picture a drone coming in over the hills and crashing through the glass and flying over here and putting duct tape over my mouth, you know?"

A Wonder Woman solo film was originally outlined as a priority area for Warner Bros at a shareholders meeting in October, with a tentative 2017 release date.

Some Saoirse Stuff #4



We begin this packed edition of SSS with Saoirse Ronan being nominated for the Young British Performer award by the LFCC (London Film Critics Circle) for her performance in The Grand Budapest Hotel. She also recently moved to London to focus on her career.

Additionally, her newest film, Brooklyn, also starring Bill Weasley Domhnall Gleeson, will premiere at Sundance next month. Based on the Colm Toibin novel of the same name, the author himself described her performance as "extraordinary."

Earlier this year, she was one of many celebrity ambassadors for ConnectIreland, an employment program which, according to the Irish Independent, "was set up as part of the government's 2012 Action Plan for Jobs, which aimed to get 100,000 people back to work by 2016 and ensure two million were at work by 2020."

And the kicker -- she made no bones about her disdain for Kim Kardashian's Paper cover: "She was naked. And it was not in a kind-of beautiful, kind-of artistic way. It was disgusting."
