UPDATE: Andrew Rannells will stepping in as King George!

Favorite songs off Hamilton? I'm still loving the 1-2 punch of Helpless/Satisfied but I'm starting to find gems that I overlook the first time like One Last Time and Say No To This. Which musicals are you looking forward to seeing? Anyone planning on seeing Allegiance? I'm worry that they'll struggle with finding an audience but I'm hoping the pull of George Takei and Lea Salonga will be enough.

20th Century Fox investigating Maze Runner theft claims



- This Wednesday (10/07), 20th Century Fox released a statement saying they are doing an investigation into Dylan O'Brien's claims that he and other Maze Runner cast and crew stole artifacts from a Pueblo site, adding, "If any artifacts were mishandled or removed from the location, we will do everything to ensure they are restored"
- The petition previously mentioned for an official apology from the cast and crew has reached 47,000 signatures at the time of the article's publication
- Jacqueline Johnson Pata, National Congress of American Indians executive director, is quoted as saying, "It brings to mind for me that our graves that were robbed for the objects that were in them. That kind of desecration and direct continuing today is not deniable or tolerable."
- Although the New Mexican ranch is not home to any Indian burial grounds, it does contain many artifacts dated from the 800s to the 1700s. The ranch owner has stated, "Whether it be a thousand-dollar pot that was found, or a pottery shard ... we consider it all sacred." Though the ranch has been the site of 10 films, the owner will reconsider letting studios shoot there in the future if the stories turn out to be true. So far, the owner has not noticed anything missing, but as stated above, investigations are ongoing.

MTV Fancasts the Gender-Bent Twilight Book "Life and Death," is Hopelessly Optimistic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So Stephenie Meyer, as we all know, released a gender-bent version of Twilight called "Life and Death" introducing Beau Swan and Edythe Cullen on Tuesday to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Twilight's release. MTV decided that, although a movie is unlikely, they should fancast one anyway. Here's 5 of their choices which I thought were the most illogical/clichéd/over-optimistic.

MTV had their own reasoning for why the actors got picked but we can't copy/paste directly so instead, take the descriptions from the book.

This book was truly a wild ride from start to finish tbh.

The other fancast choices were Matt Bomer as Esme/Earnest Cullen, Dylan O'Brian as Alice/Archie Cullen, Willa Holland as Jasper/Jessamine Cullen, and Alanna Saunders as Jacob/Jullie "Jules" Black.

Olly Murs Blames His Fans For His Breakup From Girlfriend

British singer and former X Factor contestant (current presenter) Olly Murs is blaming his fans for his split from his gf Francesca.
2465919600000578-2895636-image-m-20_1420316424461

“A lot of my fans are girls, so it can cause problems, obviously. Sometimes I’ll ask Francesca to stay in the people carrier when a crowd comes around. From her perspective she’s thinking, ‘Why am I a secret? Why are you putting me in a car?’ And I say, ‘You can come and stand with me if you want’, but if someone comes up and asks for a picture and says, ‘Olly I really fancy you, you should dump your girlfriend. You should get rid of her and go out with me’. It’s not nice.”

They split a few weeks ago and he is sad cause he planned a future with her, but the tension caused them to split.

5 Seconds of Summer Accidentally Slip They're Not Big Fifth Harmony Fans

In an offensive and awkward "Mash Up" game created by Capital FM, 5 SOS had to do some random ass "mash it up wahdfhhrhehfds wtf?" phrase thing when a name they liked was mentioned. The boys weren't too eager once they realized what a messed up game it was, after some subtle shade resulted.


Michael said it for Taylor Swift (he has a crush on her), Luke said it for Selena Gomez (another crush), they all said it for Rihanna, Janet and Madonna, and then silence for Lauren from Fifth Harmony.
Calum and Michael then realized what happened/what the game was, and said they felt bad and the game sucked, with the game making Calum feel awkward.

In case you're unaware, 5H stans have been bullying 5 SOS & their fans online for the past year, which may explain why they all went silent.
Collapse )

SourceSource

5 SOS have been adamant for years about trying to help their fans stop cutting/with depression, they've actively reached out to the fans for this and then 5H fans were telling them to cut deeper/trending it on social media and all this shit, which naturally pissed off 5SOS.

Katie Nolan Calls Out "Garbage Human" Greg Hardy

Last night, Katie Nolan spilled a whole lot of truth about Greg Hardy and the ethics of the NFL in general.

Greg Hardy, who was suspended after being accused of violently abusing his then-girlfriend recently returned to the Dallas Cowboys and during his first meeting with the media he was basically trash, complete with sexist comments about Gisele Bündchen.

Collapse )

This is really worth watching. It's concise yet so damn accurate. Some of my favorite parts include:

"Greg Hardy had to pretend to respect women for 12 minutes -- just 12 minutes -- and he couldn't even do that. And what's worse: No one stopped him. They let him go on about girlfriends and guns, and posted video of it on DallasCowboys.com, because who fucking cares, right?" and “What matters to you? Seriously, what matters to you? Because expecting a garbage human who has been punished for being garbage, to come back from his suspension and not immediately resume being garbage is the asking bare minimum.

Of course, she's been getting a ton of hate from the dudebros of Twitter (most of which is sexist and gross and only further proves her points), but she's also gotten a lot of support as well, specifically from other male sports writers/reporters which is great. I hope this catches and gets a lot more publicity.

Pretty Little Liars gets a new opening sequence!

It’s here! It’s finally here! @eonline has #PrettyLittleLiars’ all-new opening sequence! 🎉 http://t.co/uBWLB5FyTi

— Pretty Little Liars (@ABCFpll) October 8, 2015

Last month, I. Marlene King, aka in real life -A, tweeted that the girls were filming a new intro and that all of them would get a turn to SHHH this time. Today, E! released a behind the scenes video of the girls filming said intro, which in fact includes all of them doing the SHHH bit, and they also released the actual opening that shows Canadian Princess Shay Mitchell doing the SHHH at the end.

Because of the way Marlene's tweet was worded, and also because of the BTS video, rumor has it that they will be alternating between the girls doing the SHHH sign every week.

You can watch the BTS video H E R E and the complete opening H E R E

MLB ALDS Game 1: Blue Jays fall to Rangers, Astro take down Royals. Home field jinx?



Source

Injuries plague the Blue Jays and end up taking two huge pieces of their offense out of the game, and David Price's postseason woes continue as he is now 0-6 in postseason career. Despite showing some strong signs of fighting back, the Jays couldn't ride the hometown crowd's energy to victory Thursday afternoon.



Source

Rain delay interrupted the Astros-Royals game, but it didn't seem to change much. Royals stayed in it but never had the lead after going down early.

It's way early but not a single home team has won a game so far in the postseason. Away teams are doing a great job neutralizing the fans.

I know there are a fair number of Jays fans here, sorry guys :(
