Youtubers Ethan and Hila (H3H3) raised $120k via crowdfunding in 24hrs, then donated all of it.

The best Youtube couple have been rising to fame at an incredibly fast rate because of their ridiculous antics and Ethan's reaction videos to the most absurd shit he can find on the internet, the latter recently getting them into legal issues.

First, a summarized backstory: Ethan is originally from California, after meeting and marrying Hila they lived for about 7 years in Israel, where she is from. Both quit their jobs to become full time Youtubers, then last year, after Hila got her visa they moved back to the States, most specifically midtown Manhattan where they planned on paying rent with Youtube money.

Now one of the guys who got roasted by them (it was a gross, misogynistic parkour video) flagged Ethan and Hila for copyright infringement, which means they cannot make money from their videos if their Youtube account is in "bad standing".

Yesterday they posted a video explaining that the situation would cost them about $100,000 but never actually asked for money and that Video Game Attorney (idk some internet famous dude?) was representing them for free. Apparently some fan set up a GoFundMe for them last night and as of right now, in less than a day, its at $124,714 (when they made the video it was at $117k), even channels they have roasted before donated to the cause. The Fine Bros gave $10k even though they got one of Ethan's most savage rants.

So what's happening to the money? Well, since Video Game Attorney and his partners represent people who are in Ethan and Hila's situation, as in "victims of unfair copyright infringement claims" they are donating every single penny to their account so they can keep supporting people who otherwise can't afford an attorney. They just added $5,000 to the GoFunMe themselves as well.

In true h3h3 fashion, hey are calling this the Fair Use Protection Account, aka FUPA and, quoting Ethan "the FUPA shall protect all of us".

If you're interested, they explain the lawsuit situation with more detail on this video.

Drake is an awful person to date (and if you act like him, so are you)

- Article talks about how Drake has the right to write whiny lyrics about his failed relationships but should grow up a little bit.
- Asks how many more songs can he make about how he had a “good girl,” went off to do his own thing (and fuck other people freely), and later found himself left by the "good girl" because she lost interest.
- Highlights and comments some of his lines in songs.
- End the article saying that if you act anything like Drake, you should join in walking into actual adulthood.


ONTD, is Drake a manchild?

Cassandra Clare writing ANOTHER series about Magnus Bane

Talentless hack Cassandra Clare continues to beat her dead horse, this time dragging author Wesley Chu (The Lives of Tao) into her mess.

"Magnus Bane is getting his own YA series courtesy of Saga Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Clare will co-write the series with Wesley Chu, author of The Lives of Tao.

"Over the years writing the Shadowhunter books, Magnus Bane has emerged as one of the most fun and fascinating characters for me to bring to life. He's always had a lot of secrets — there are so many things we don't know about Magnus, from the story of his first love to the secrets of his parentage, to the beginning of his relationship with Alec. All those things I was able to touch on in The Bane Chronicles, but I'm excited to dig in even more deeply in these three volumes devoted to Magnus, his past, his future, and his present."

...the first book in the Magnus Bane trilogy is slated for a November 2017 release."

Steve Buscemi, Iwan Rheon and Danny Trejo Sing About the Bad Guy Plight for Red Nose Day

For Red Nose Day, Steve Buscemi, Iwan Rheon and Danny Trejo sang about the troubles they go through playing scary characters, and not being allowed to participate in Red Nose Day.

Since NBC had yet to upload a HQ version but still found time to upload the terribly unfunny Sarah Silverman skit, here's a rip:


Way funnier than the Walking Dead skit. Iwan Rheon is a diamond.

Tom Hiddleston is in “advanced talks” to take on the role of 007

According to the source, after watching his performance in High-Rise and The Night Manager, the prospect of him being Bond isn't bad at all. It’s also worth noting that if cast, Hiddleston would be the first Bond actor who shares an educational background with both the literary 007 and Ian Fleming himself: all three attended Eton College in their respective youths.

Garbage shares amazing new song from Strange Little Birds!

Shirley: I wish I could take credit for that song, but that came into my lap from Butch and was fully formed. Generally speaking, I don’t like to be told what to sing. He brought this song to me and said, “I have this idea, if you dig it, cool, if not, no hard feelings.” He played it for me, and I was blown away. It was utterly perfect. I immediately said, “I want to sing it right now.” And the vocal, it’s the first take that you hear. It was me basically learning the song. But it has a fragility that really matched the music. It’s rare that songs come to you perfect. Usually you have to spend time with them or f—k around. But even Butch, who’s incredibly modest, knew how good it was. It’s the throbbing heart of the entire record.

You can get it as an instant download if you pre-order the album. Strange Little Birds is out June 10th!

Cover art for Disney's Gargoyles Cinestory Comic released


For those who don't know, a cinestory is a comic that adapts a show or movie using screencaps instead of original art (for example, this is the cinestory for Zootopia). However it's been hinted that if the Gargoyles cinestory does well enough Disney might bring back the original comic book series that series creator Greg Weisman was doing.

The Gargoyles cinestory will be released in July, though you can preorder it on Amazon now.

Matthew Lewis talks about how he first heard of Alan Rickman's death

In a new interview with Fault Magazine, Matthew Lewis shares how he learned of Alan Rickman's passing.

"I was at Leavesden Studios the other day, visiting the set of Fantastic Beasts and I was with the producer who did all the Harry Potter films. He was taking me around the studio when the news came through. We were both just completely stunned. But also, to be in the studio when that came through, suddenly every room that I went into, every corridor that I walked down on, I suddenly remembered a story or an image of Alan. It got a bit odd. It was quite surreal. But also, powerfully moving as well. It was quite nice to be there. All those happy memories came flooding back and I got quite nostalgic actually. I went back home last night and just watched loads of interviews with him. It’s hard to describe. On his last day, I had a cup of tea with him in his trailer and we just sat and chatted about the future of my career and what I should do. He just offered me advice in where I should go and he said some things to me that filled me with a lot of confidence. And when you hear those sorts of things from someone of his stature, his ability, it means a lot."

Ruth B visits NYC's Strand Bookstore to discuss some of her favorite books

Canadian singer-songwriter Ruth B visited NYC's Strand Bookstore to discuss some of her favorite books. Her Peter Pan-inspired song "Lost Boy" originally started out as a 6-second Vine of her singing a line she came up with, but after her Vine blew up, she decided to turn the line she wrote into a full song. Talking about the books she read while growing up, Ruth says that the Harry Potter series is her all-time favorite, and J.K. Rowling is the one person she wishes she could meet. Her music video for "Lost Boy" came out earlier this month and has already racked up 4 million views. Her song is currently #30 on the Hot 100.

What Went Wrong Between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

- Marriage was already on the rocks after 3 months but they decided to stay married to avoid the shame of a short lived marriage.
- Reclusive Johnny got sick of Amber's obsession with Hollywood.
- Amber's close friendship with photographer Io Tillett Wright also proved to be an issue.
- Io was staying in Johnny's guest house and had to move out once Johnny felt uncomfortable that bisexual Amber was spending too much time with Io.
- Johnny required Amber to travel with him during location shoots and Amber had to distance herself from lesbian friends.
- The Aussie dog debacle didn't help as it was Amber's fault, bringing Pistol and Boo, which ultimately made Johnny look stupid.
- Johnny is looking his age and Amber is questioning why she is with an old man who used to look like Johnny Depp.

Johnny Depp has also released a statement on his divorce:
“Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.”
