Anita Sarkeesian on Women as Rewards

This episode explores the numerous ways in which the Women as Reward trope manifests in video games. The trope occurs when women or women’s bodies are employed as rewards for player actions, a pattern which frames female bodies and sexuality as collectible or consumable and positions women as status symbols designed to validate the masculinity of presumed straight male players. We then discuss how this trope both reflects and reinforces the pervasive, socially constructed mentality of male entitlement that operates in the background of our culture.

Idris Elba is "too street" to play 007, says new James Bond author

Anthony Horowitz, author of the latest James Bond novel Trigger Mortis, told [banned source]: "Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. [ETA: He names Adrian Lester, star of Hustle.] For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It's not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

His least favorite Bond films: "Quantum Of Solace just went wrong. Skyfall is my least favourite. Bond is weak in it. He has doubts. That's not Bond. Secondly, [Spoiler (click to open)]the villain wins. The villain sets out to kill M – the film finishes with the villain killing M."


First Nations woman wins Mrs. Universe, immediately slays

I urge all First Nations people in Canada to vote in this upcoming election. We are in desperate need of a new Prime...

For those who don't know, this is a teeny tiny fraction of the shit she's talking about:

WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka (finally) charged in 1983 death (murder) of Girlfriend.

Jimmy was married with 4 kids  (including Tamina and Deuce) at the time and allegedly changed his story multiple times.

He initially said they were playing, and he had shoved her earlier in the day, but later said ALL 5 misunderstood him and that she had actually hit her head by accident when she slipped when he stopped to piss at a roadside bathroom.

Considering that the victim had severe brain injuries and lacerations and bruises upon most of her body, police realized his shit stank (32 years later...) police were like "GOT 'EM!" and charged him with murder.

Also, he claimed in his autobiography that he'd never hurt her, but allegedly had been arrested for beating her a month prior to her death.

Kenneth Branagh Directing Artemis Fowl Series

-The film adaptation was announced back in 2013 as something between Disney and Weinstein. It's finally moving forward.

-The books revolve around a 12-year-old Artemis Fowl who is a millionaire, genius, and criminal mastermind. But Artemis doesn’t know what he’s taken on when he kidnaps a fairy to harness her magic to save his family.

-The first movie is supposed to cover the first two books though things may have changed. They might also be changing screenwriters since their 2013 announcement. It will be live action.

-Weinstein has partnered with Disney for this because Harvey's kids love the books, and he trusts Disney to adapt properties for everyone to enjoy.

-Branagh will first direct a Murder on the Orient Express adaptation before getting around to this.

book post? I always skipped these in the library as a kid because Artemis sounded like an annoying dick

Mess: Anthony Horowitz backtracks after saying Idris Elba is too "street" to play James Bond

-After his comments received such backlash, he stated "I'm really sorry my comments about Idris Elba have caused offence. That wasn't my intention. I was asked in my interview if Idris Elba would make a good James bond. In the article I expressed the opinion that to my mind Adrian Lester would be a better choice, but I'm a writer not a casting director, so what do I know? Clumsily, I chose the word 'street' as Elba's gritty portrayal of DCI John Luther was in my mind, but I admit it was a poor choice of word. I am mortified to have caused offence."

-His exacts words being "Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part, it's not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

-Elba, dismissed the speculations by saying: "Honestly, it's a rumor that's really starting to eat itself," earlier at this year at London's British Film Institute. "If there was ever any chance of me getting Bond, it's gone."


Lauren Conrad owns up to being basic after 29 years ! (but she's happy so it's all good)

-Conrad admitted to being basic after being called out by Allure, said in Cosmo interview:"I'm probably pretty basic but I'm also a pretty happy person, so that's OK with me."

-The Hills star married to William Tell last year in september.

-She will be showing her LC Lauren Conrad Runway line for New York Fashion Week this month,and also opened up about the boost that her reality show roots gave her career. "Television was just sort of an accident… I never felt really strongly about it. But fashion is something I feel passionate about. If I hadn't done TV, I still would have ended up in the [fashion] industry, but I definitely wouldn't be in the position I am now," she said.

-She also reportedly does not want to talk about Heidi Montag. (which is a shame)

Halsey's uncharted territory

Produced by Lido, the Badlands singer has often been compared to the likes of Lorde, Katy Perry (wtf) and Lana Del Rey.

LEA WEATHERBY: Halsey is not only an anagram for your name, but it's also the name of a street you lived on in Brooklyn, New York. What about the East Coast inspires you and your writing?

HALSEY: I love how it's constantly evolving. There's so much life, you're constantly engaged, and I think I need that, but that's why the West Coast is good for me right now. It's almost like the detox phase where I'm not confronted by so much life and movement all around me. It's helpful because touring can get overwhelming, cognitively, and it's tremendously stimulating at the same time. I just got off a two-month tour with Imagine Dragons and we saw the whole country. It's great doing an arena thing, performing for 20,000 people a night. I truly had moments like, "Holy shit, is this happening?"
