Tale of Tales, the people behind Sunset, are done with games

"After the barrage of sad tales about depression caused by indies turning into millionaires overnight, allow us to raise your spirits with a story about the liberating and energizing effects of complete commercial failure."


Remember that game Sunset? The one where you play as Angela Burnes, an African American woman in 1972, trapped in the metropolitan capital of San Bavón? Apparently, it didn’t do so well :(

Anthony Mackie says smart women are hard to find

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Anthony Mackie, noted DUI and "Make daddy a sandwich!" enthusiast, has described what he believes is the perfect woman for his Captain America co-star Chris Bro Evans.

"Chris needs a regular girl. Chris needs a girl who is just down to earth, who's smart and that's hard to find. Those girls are not celebrities. Those are not girls you know...Chris just needs a regular and down to earth smart girl...Somebody that can take care of him you know because he is Captain America...He really loves Earth, Wind & Fire. Like we were talking one day and he put on Earth, Wind & Fire and he said it's the best band of all time. So Chris just dances around to Earth, Wind & Fire all day. It's really weird."

hannibal has been cancelled




- hannibal has been cancelled after three seasons
- from fuller: “NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers," Fuller said in a statement. "Jen Salke and her team have been fantastic partners and creatively supportive beyond measure. HANNIBAL is finishing his last course at NBC’s table this summer, but a hungry cannibal can always dine again. And personally, I look forward to my next meal with NBC.”

Video of Vine "star" Carter Reynolds trying to pressure his uncomfortable ex into blowing him leaks



Popular Vine douchebag Carter Reynolds is in the middle of a controversy after a video of him trying to get his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend Maggie to give him a blowjob on camera leaks. In the video Maggie says, "You're making me so uncomfortable" and "I don't know if I can. I don't think I can" while Carter says, "Do it. Just pretend nothing is there." He also says, "Stop! Stop!" when she starts saying she's uncomfortable. After she keeps refusing, the video ends with Carter saying, "Oh my gosh, Maggie. Oh my gosh."

This isn't the first time he's in a sex scandal. In the past he's been accused of taking advantage of young fans to send him nudes.

The two had a public breakup not too long ago with Maggie saying, "I dumped him because he yells at me if I don’t do what he wants, or if I do anything he doesn’t like. He tells me to STFU and doesn’t let me do stuff…gets mad if I want to hang out with friends."

Taylor Swift BFF Jaime King Asks Studios To Pay Actors For Streaming



Originally she had made a post on instagram with the following open letter of her own. The instagram post has since been deleted:

"Congrats and thank you Tay for supporting artistry and the support of artists big and small. I hope that these kinds of changes can be made in Hollywood- where actors are actually paid for the episodes watches on Netflix and Hulu etc. (except those shows that are original series for Netflix/Amazon/Hulu etc),” Jaime wrote in an Instagram post. “Hart of Dixie is one of the top watched shows on Hulu and helped us receive renewal many times- yet they say it’s not ‘quantifiable’ so we don’t get paid. Period. Not one cent,” she continued.

Before streaming, actors, writers, producers & directors were paid residuals for every episode watched. Which is how those in our industry would live in between work. And people rarely watch live TV- or buy TV’s- they stream, so actors etc. do NOT receive any money for episodes watched in this format. It’s imperative that ALL artists are paid for their work and for the loving that they put into in whilst the corporations make hundreds of millions yet claim they no nothing. It’s a conflict, because we want you to watch our shows and are grateful for streaming because it allows people to discover new series. I LOVE Netflix and Hulu – yet, there must be a change of course from the studios that make direct deals with them and get the money directly yet do not pay the people making the shows come to life. Thank you for encouraging change @taylorswift and I really hope that one day that will cross over into our field. With gratitude- your friend, JK.”

Sorry about the pic, mods!

How many of Taylor's BFF's do you think will get in on this? I think she has kind of a point, but at the same time, if your show doesn't make it to syndication status - should you see that kind of money?

Obama has nuanced conversation about issues in America, all anyone talks about is the N-Word





Collapse )

-Talks about how its hard to have conversations in the US without them turning into DvR LvC and that he has tried to change that and show that things are more nuanced than the way they are typically spoken of in the public sphere
-Says race relations have improved but the legacy of slavery and Jm Crow still reverberates in institutions today
-Says that just being polite enough not to say the N-word (he said the actual word) isnt an indication that racism is dead
-Said the NRA has a hold on congress and that the only time he was truly disgusted by them was when they did nothing after Newton.
-Says overall he feels he is leaving America better off than it was both economically and socially, and that his presidency overall has been a net positive for America.
Everyone goes and proves his point by ignoring all the issues addressed by clutching their pearls that he actually said the N-word

Now i agree that its un-presidential to say the N-word despite his being AA, but its frustrating how this whole podcast has been reduced to that when he spoke so frankly about issues particularly race. Never change Americans

British Soldier Recalls When Prince Harry Saved Him From Homophobic Attack


“And of course, the most important moment I will remember personally, the time the Prince stepped in and told a group of very unhappy soldiers to ‘back the f**k off’ and leave me alone. This was following on from an incident which had occurred the evening before during which I had got a little close to a soldier from another regiment whilst drinking in the bar. The morning Harry had to come to my rescue, word had got round among the other regiment about what had happened between me and one of their own, and a group of angry sergeants wanted my blood — because to them, I was obviously to blame. Harry caught wind of the situation and confronted the older non commissioned officers, and made, quite clear, that they would be for the high jump if they gave me another second’s hassle over the issue — my sexuality.

I remember watching him put these much older, much more experienced soldiers firmly in their place and the group walked away, visibly, with their tails between their legs. He returned to me and said, unassumingly, “you won’t hear from that lot again.”

– James Wharton, author of Out in the Army: My Life as a Gay Soldier, retells the story of Prince Harry stepping up to save him from homophobic soldiers.
