15 (4) Mahou Shoujo anime you should watch


1. Shugo Chara!
Story: Amu Hinamori is an elementary school student that is seen as "cool and spicy" by her colleagues, but is actually extremely shy. One day, she wishes to have a "new" personality, and in the next day, she finds three colored eggs laying on her bed. These eggs are from her shugo charas who will help her to discover her personality + fight the X eggs, who corrupt people's dreams.
Why should you watch it: (because it's my personal favorite) the character growth is great to see, the villains are interesting, it has a really positive you-can-do-it vibe, the transformations are freaking cute and Mizuki Nana sings in this.

Here it is, finale coming tonight @ 9/8c on AMC! Afterwards, a special Talking Preacher will feature Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Eugene/Arseface himself, Ian Colleti. They'll be answering questions you can submit using the #TalkingPreacher hashtag. I believe a user from here is planning on attending, so hope to hear of their experience during it!

What are your hopes for tonight's finale? Here's a few of mine : [Spoiler (click to open)]I'm praying the fan-theory about DeBlanc and Fiore will be confirmed. I absolutely love this change, though I am also worried about DeBlanc's fate from last week... And finally, I'm happy it seems like they're leaving Annville behind, but I would like a nice bit of closure on some of the characters we've come to know. Especially Eugene's fate! Well, see y'all in church!

On July 30, the song below had premiered on Moore's Apple Music station. Additionally, the band is RTing/sharing Skrillex posts on their social media. Is their bad blood gone? Is this really a new song? What is not-forever-emo-OP going to do?

(Atheist) Beauty Blogger wears hijab for tutorial

With nearly 2 million subscribers, youtube beauty guru Chloe Morello is at the top of her game. However, a new video titled "EID MAKEUP TUTORIAL: Soft Glam Look with Cool Tones!" is causing controversy, with outlets like Cosmo & Refinery29 reporting on it. Keep in mind, Morello is NOT Muslim. She claims like sooooo many people have been asking for like an eid tutorial including her totally cool muslim friend (or something like that).



Here are a few sample comments from the video:

- "Shes using this as a costume! If you are not muslim you will not understand. and i dont understand why you all are talking about this issue."

Collapse )

She made a statement via the daily mail claiming she is an atheist and it's not an issue: "It makes as much sense as it does to do a Christmas tutorial.... I'm not trying to promote any religion here I'm just trying to promote acceptance." (girl way to miss the point)

Tom Hiddleston's Embarrassing Antics Cost Him Armani Campaign




Last month it was reported that Tom was among the list of people Armani was considering after Calvin Harris.

However exclusives are afraid that they will be seen as “cashing in” on the Hiddleswift hype, and they want to be detached from the drama.

An insider says: "Armani see themselves as classier than that and think that a rising sports star may suit their current needs better. Armani would hate to be seen as getting PR for their brand by riding on Taylor Swift’s coat tails, so Tom will not get the job."

Also since the brand is looking to cater to 30 somethings and under Tom may be a little too old.

ONTD Original: 1998, A year of one hit wonders

Previous Posts: 1999 | 2000 | 2001-2009

The music that really makes me miss the '90s most are the forgotten artists and songs - the ones that really made an impression for a short time and then disappeared from the charts. 18 years ago, artists like Jennifer Paige, Tatyana Ali and Five were topping the charts. These artists who created their 1998 smash hits were never able to replicate the success. Let's take a look at some of the best one hit wonders of 1998!
Disclaimer: These lists are based on U.S. Billboard Hot 100 only. Sorry to those who disagree with certain choices! It is what it is

ACTRESS MEAGAN GOOD LAUNCHES INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN TO FINANCE FEATURE FILM

Meagan Good and Tamara Bass launch Indiegogo Campaign for their upcoming feature film. https://t.co/CMrC60ppB6 pic.twitter.com/vRxfsKA8eJ

— JONES Magazine (@Jonesmag) July 28, 2016

Krazy Actress Productions (founded by Meagan Good and Tamara Bass) - not sure why they chose a silly-arse name, but thats what the are called.They are seeking funding via indigogo for their feature film - 'If Not Now, When?'. The film is written by Tamara Bass. Both Tamara and Megan will star in the film. Both ladies are trying to play on our sense of nostalgia by saying the film is in the sam vein as female bonding movies from the 80s and ‘90s - such as Women of Brewester Place, Set It off and Waiting to Exhale.

The synopsis from their website  - If Not Now, When? introduces us to SUZANNE (Meagan Good), PATRICE (Tamara Bass), TYRA (TBA) and DEIDRE (TBA), who have been friends since meeting at 14. Over the course of their lives, fights, disagreements and love have caused friction and distance to manifest between some of them, particularly Suzanne and Patrice, who haven’t spoken in almost 15 years. When Tyra, who is mother to 14 year old JILLIAN (TBA), suffers a crisis, all four women are drawn back together to make it through, and soon discover that they also need each other, and that sisterhood, to make it through what is currently happening in their individual lives.

Tears, laughter and most importantly heart are at the center of this poignant drama. If Not Now, When? captures the essence of those female bonding movies that were prevalent in the 90’s, while telling a story that is stirring and will most certainly tug at your emotions.


The ladies have said they are going down the crowd funding route so they can maintain creative control of the film. Which is fair enough, after all we have all heard of stories of POC filmmakers, show runners etc being told to whiten and lighten characters.

But, I can't help but feel like they have other ways to get this film funded and this is just about Megan's thrifty nature. Between a menagerie of rich friends,  Megan and her husband also have a bestselling book, Megan's long running career in Hollywood (which includes starting in predominately black films), and Meagan's husband (Devon Franklin) has a long career behind the scenes before he broke out on his own and has a hit film 'miracles from heaven' under his belt. One would think that with a wealth of resources between them they could get this film funded/made.

But as they say 'don't lend money to friends' and 'the best way to say rich is to not spend your own money'. Maybe that's why Meagan who previously asked guests to contribute to her honeymoon fund is now doing this. Clearly, I'm not the only person sideye-ing, the fundraiser was launched days ago, and the ladies still haven't broken a thousand.

Mods I've changed the two lines I lifted from the source and I'm using the synopis from the production company website just in case there is an issue with this too -  some of us are able to write more than two lines on a subject.

She just said this during her radio interview: "The video I just shot is about me and my girls making guys audition for us. The whole thing was basically us playing with them". According to reports, video director David LaChapelle quit as the video director.

Peep Show to get (another, hopefully good) American remake



- Starz are developing U.S. version of cult British comedy Peep Show

- The creators and writers of the show, Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, are involved as Consulting Producers (like Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant for The Office).

- An earlier remake attempt starring Johnny Galecki didn't get past pilot. It used voice overs but didn't use POV cameras, i.e. the USP of the show.

- Americans with Hulu can watch all 9 seasons along with another Bain and Armstrong show, Fresh Meat.

NBC tries to get the International Olympic Committee to change its rules; gets denied




[Long story short...]
- NBC paid $7.65 billion to the IOC to retain exclusive broadcast rights to the Olympics
- IOC caved to NBC's demands and moved swimming to a more US-friendly time even though this means the events will be held at midnight in Rio
- However, when NBC tried to get the International Olympic Committee to change the order of the Parade of Nations, their request was denied
- The Parade of Nations traditionally begins with Greece first, as the founder of the ancient Games, and the host nation last, and then the other participating nations enter based on their names in the host country's language.
- This rule means that instead of coming near last (which allows NBC to squeeze in 5,000 commercials to skip the ~irrelevant countries~ the United States will entry somewhat early, due to being known as Estados Unidos in Portugese, Brazil's official language
- NBC Sports claimed that they never requested a change but Olympic officials say they did

ONTD Original: the downfall of MTV

mtv
In honor of MTV's 35th anniversary today, I thought it would be helpful to do a timeline of the network, and when exactly it went downhill. There is debate as to when exactly this was, some blame The Real World, some blame TRL, some blame Jersey Shore. But when did the downfall of MTV really happen? Here's a timeline of MTV and it's history.
Note: There are hundreds of shows I could list here, but I'm not going to list all of them.
