Russian Watchdog Threatens Google, Facebook Over 'Extremist' Content




Following recent news which reported that the Russian government has banned celebrity memes, Russian state agency Roskomnadzor has accused Facebook, Google and Twitter of committing "lawless actions" by ignoring Russia's demands, and threatened sanctions, fines and bans.

Roskomnadzor have threatened action unless the companies comply with Moscow's demands to block content it deems extremist and to share information about online traffic on individual pages.

The agency issued a statement demanding that the social networking companies delete content that ""contains calls for mass unrest [or] carrying out extremist activities" or calls for attending unauthorized rallies.

This also follows a demand made by the agency last summer, which ordered bloggers whose accounts receive more than 3,000 visitors per day to register as mass media. (I happen to know a Russian journalist IRL and this is scarily 100% true).

Opponents of the Russian government have often turned to social media to voice dissent and organize rallies, as Russian media is state controlled.

TLC considering an 18 Kids and Counting show







TLC is debating between canceling the show outright, or just filming it without Josh. They believe the audience mostly cares about the daughters anyway, so it's easy to lose him. They also believe the evangelical audience will stand by the show if it stays on the air.

I'm sure good Christians like the Duggars won't be down with treating their beloved Josh like a pariah just to keep the money rolling in, right?

Casting for GOTG2 has begun, to add two women to core team

James Gunn has already finished the script and begun casting for Guardians of the Galaxy 2

no title
- James Gunn is looking to add two women to the core team
- A character we're 'already familiar with' is also joining the team (Hulk? Lol)
- James Gunn has already approached an actor (Was this what Al Pacino met with Marvel about? Matthew Mccoughnshugy?)
- Yondu will have a bigger role in this movie
- The plot, which James Gunn thought was too risky when pitched to Marvel, is very much about 'fathers'
- Star-Lord's dad won't be the same as in the comics. no J'Son king of the Spartax Empire. Too Star Warsy.

which two new characters do you want to see? I'd love to see Mantis and QUEEN ANGELA ASGARD'S ASSASSIN of course. They can pretty easily follow her origin in the Guardians of the Galaxy comic and then have her ~find herself~ for Thor 3. Plus her friendship with Gamora is the best. And who do you think is the familiar character joining the team? Probably Yondu or Nebula tbh. I don't think they can really fit Hulk in this.

Talks about giving birth to her daughter in 6 weeks and wanting to use her position to help who do not have basic rights:

Geography dictates my freedom as a woman, geography and the women before us who fought for our equal political voice. The inequality that is all too prevalent all over the world is so great and so frightening. We owe it to our sisters who have no voice, and no chance to be heard, to speak up.

Lil B the Based God Curse is REAL!!!!

First, it was Kevin Durant, who angered rapping sensation Lil B by insulting his swag...Kevin Durant later suffered the Based God's curse: getting injured and failing to win a championship. Later, Houston Rocketss player James Harden appropriated Lil B's swag, by failing to give credit to the rap legend for his "cooking dance". The Based God gave Harden a chance to repent, however, the Hawks' (Harden's opponents) official twitter pleaded the Based God to offer them success. Lil B agreed to spare the Hawks from his curse.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone Buying Groceries, Andrew "creeped out"



WARNING: He says a bad language word.

By all accounts, Stonefield is back on, and after days of fan sightings, paparazzi finally caught up with the pair buying groceries together. Needless to say, Andrew Garfield was not amused as he yelled at the paparazzi by telling them they were "really f#*&ing creepy," while girlfriend, Emma Stone, ignored the paps altogether. The video ends with Garfy shaking his ponytailed head at the paparazzo after being congratulated on getting back together, and asked if the two were getting married.

Jessica Lange talks about sexism in Hollywood


Hollywood is run with this male point of view. Even if a woman runs a studio, she still does it with a male point of view. And as long as that exists, you’re still going to have this wish fulfillment," Jessica Lange said to TheWrap, "That men continue to be fascinating and attractive and virile, and women age and are no longer sexual or beautiful — it’s a fantasy that has nothing to do with reality.

This comes after Maggie Gyllenhaal's recent comments that she was 'too old'. Jessica Lange also wondered "why would a 37 year old want to play opposite a 55-year-old man?" and said that this age gap was not a new phenomenon.

“I think a lot of it is fear of mortality,” Lange said of the male pov in entertainment. “One’s mortality, one’s youth and virility… now they have Viagra, they’re humping away on their deathbeds. Hollywood is a perfect expansion of that idea that permeates our society.”

Michael B. Jordan Shuts Up Haters



-People are saying various things on the internet: “A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It’s not true to the comic.” Or even, “They’ve destroyed it!”
-Michael isn't bothered by the haters
-Says that if Stan Lee is cool with it, why fight it?
-Creative choice from the director, Josh Trank, who is in an interracial relationship himself
-Hoping to set an example for Hollywood to start considering more people of color in other prominent roles
-To the trolls on the Internet, I want to say: Get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s okay to like it.

ONTD Original: 10 international pop acts that failed to break into the American music market

The American music market is the biggest music market in the entire world, and many artists have tried to break into it to leave their mark on it. Here are 10 acts from around the world that tried and failed to break into the American music market.

1) Utada Hikaru

Utada Hikaru tried to break into the American music market over 10 years ago with her debut English language album Exodus in 2004. She was marketed as the "Japanese Britney Spears," but her album didn't make a dent stateside. She released four singles from Exodus, including Easy Breezy, You Make Me Want To Be A Man, Devil Inside, and Exodus 04. Devil Inside was a #1 dance hit in the states, while Exodus 04 was a minor club hit.
