Is Anyone Watching Frontier?

New show on CBC and Discovery Canada and probably available to stream online (its actually on Netflix too) about the Hudson Bay Company in a Game of Thrones style episodic series that deals with how they committed cultural genocide in the name of God and Country in the Americas. I mean its clearly showing how hard it was for them, boo-hoo but still. Features Jason Mamoa as the ambigiously Native/Irish counterpoint to the white people who came to "civilize" a part of the world that would have happily survived without them (and not elected Trump as their president).

Angelina Jolie speaks out after the divorce

Actually her spokesperson did it for her:

"The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children. Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal."

This post probably sucks, but I'm hungover fragile because it was my birthday yesterday, so please bear with me. It's release week! Remember to pre-order Glory Days if you haven't, yet. PS: The Fabulous Mag photoshoot looks so cheap compared to this one, but you can't expect much from a magazine that belongs to The Sun.

Taylor Swift might be exploring hip-hop with her next album

Following the previously reported story that Drake has been working with Taylor in the studio, it appears that he may be there in an even larger capacity than expected in order to help her succeed in yet another musical genre.

The source:
“Taylor is always looking at ways to grow as an artist and really wants to try something different and unexpected for the next album. She’s not afraid of experimenting so is working with a lot of different faces to see if she suits a new sound. The remix of her song ‘Bad Blood’ had a less pop vibe — especially once Kendrick Lamar featured on it — and was a big hit, so she thinks her fans will like her going in this direction.”

“As well as writing with Taylor, he’s producing a few tracks and even lent his vocals to one song."

“It’s a real mix of edgier hip-hop and R&B sounds.”

Another NFL Player Sits Out National Anthem in Protest of Drumpf

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans chose not to stand while the song played during this Sunday's game. And he plans to keep doing this as long as the Grand Orange Wizard is president-elect.

“I don’t want to, you know, disrespect the veterans or anything. The men and women who serve this country, I’m forever indebted to them. But the things that’s been going on in America lately, I’m not going to stand for that.When Ashton Kutcher comes out and says we’ve been punked, then I’ll stand again. If this happens, then America’s not right, right now,” Evans said. “I said this a long time ago. When [Trump] ran, I thought it was a joke, and the joke continues. I’m not a political person that much, but I got common sense. And I know when something’s not right.

The Buccaneers released this blah statement: “The Buccaneers are deeply committed to the military and honoring the great men and women that have dedicated their lives and have made great sacrifices to insure all the tremendous freedoms we have in this great country. We encourage all members of our organization to respectfully honor our flag during the playing of the National Anthem. We also recognize every individual’s constitutional right to freedom of speech, which is crucial to the American principles we cherish.”


On another note, while Drumpf's 60 Minutes interview did boost CBS' ratings, it was still down 25 percent in comparison to Obama's interview back in 2008. And Sunday night football beat it in ratings overall that night with NBC in the lead, followed by FOX.

Mulan Casting Calls

"Most roles are Chinese" has quelled some fears of Hollywood whitewashing, but I'll only breathe once the roles are cast. It also lets us know that filming is expected to take place from April 2017 to October 2017 and that they'll be shooting in China.

Mulan: 18-20 years old to play 18. Must be able to speak fluent English and Mandarin. Lithe, athletic, quick, tougher than she looks. Mulan lives in rural China in 630 AD, and her country is under attack by the Gokturk invaders. When her aging father volunteers to join the Army, Mulan sneaks out by night and takes his place, strapping down her breasts so she can pass for a man. There is a mysterious power inside Mulan, a power of speed and coordination and sheer force that places her at the peak of her unit -- where no one suspects her secret.

Chen Honghui: In his 20s, must be able to speak fluent English and Mandarin. Strapping, cocky, and handsome. Honghui is another recruit who joins Commander Tung's unit, and he's determined to be the best soldier in human history. Full of himself, with a mean, bullying streak to him, he quickly realizes that Mulan is his chief rival, but he does not realize that she is a woman. Grittily determined to be simply the best at everything, Honghui is increasingly peeved by Mulan's ability to match or out maneuver him. But after learning that his rival is a woman, his intense feelings of rivalry turn into something different. Something like love.

anyone eligible gonna go for it even though it's a long shot?

ONTD original: 20 Celebrities and Their Favourite Books

Have you ever wondered what your fave likes to read? Are they an embarrassing Ayn Rand fan like Amber Heard and Chelsea Handler? Is their favourite book "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho like (of course) Will Smith? Maybe they don't read at all, like Victoria Beckham and Jamie Oliver? Or (hopefully) they have some interesting book recs... Here are 20 celebs and their favourite books.


Song of Solomon, Toni Morrison
"Morrison makes compelling real-world magic in this book. The main character, Milkman, learns about generations of his family and the struggle of black men living in the South. As he discovers his identity, Morrison lets him fly (literally). She helps you see something that you've never seen in life or movies or art. When I finished it I thought, 'That's the best book I've ever read. The best one.'"

ONTD Original: 5 Best Supporting Actress Wins & Snubs since 2000

Since this helps me take my mind off of things for a moment, here is part two in my Oscars Wins/Snubs lists! This is a list of the biggest Best Supporting Actress snubs & wins at the Oscars since 2000. The snubbed list does not include those who were snubbed from being nominated; just those who made the final cut.

Should Have Won
Keep in mind the 5 women on this list DID deserve to win over the woman who ended up getting the Oscar their year. These are actresses who should have won but didn't, not necessarily those who gave the best performances ever; just better than their fellow nominees.

5. Amy Adams/Viola Davis - Doubt

- Lost to: Penelope Cruz - Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Also nominated: Taraji P. Henson - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; Marisa Tomei - The Wrestler
- Amy Adams is one of my least favorite actresses. But this was one of her most convincing, subtle performances and she delivered against 3 other titans. And Davis...well she stole the whole movie with a 3 minute scene. Both of them were deserving over Penelope's makeup award

Zayn Malik Might Work With Legend A.R. Rahman!

The producer of ZAYN's debut album has revealed details about the British pop star's second album. During an interview with Billboard, Malay revealed this:

"I thought it would be fun to have a platform that was maybe a little less pressure for the artist and then me having the challenge and the fun of creating a new sound. The other part of what I'm doing is representing a little bit more of the culture subliminally with Zayn Malik, who I've been working with. We're talking about doing a song with him and A.R. Rahman together and I'm having Zayn in Urdu, it's real similar to Hindi but it's Pakistani language. It's a modern-sounding song, but for him to sing in that language is kind of powerful."

Unless you've been blissfully living under a rock these past ten or so months, you've probably realised that 2016 has been one shittastic year. My fellow millenials, do you feel as though you've been bent over and fucked royally in the arse (and not in a good way)? Are you tired of living in a world that only cares if you are white, male, and over 65?

Everyone keeps telling us to be nice, love thy fellow neighbour, reach out, understand. Well, fuck that noise I say. Now is the time to stand up and fight. I have devised a playlist that I hope is motivating and might help you through these shitty times.

Judge Orders Release Of ‘Making A Murderer’ Subject Brendan Dassey

In August, U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin overturned Dassey’s conviction, holding that his confession was involuntary under the Fifth Amendment. At the time he confessed, Dassey was a teenager and according to court records, his IQ was around the threshold for intellectual disability.

When Judge Duffin tossed out Dassey’s confession earlier this year, he also said that Dassey would be released within 90 days unless the state chose to retry him. The state has appealed that ruling.

A federal judge has ordered that Brendan Dassey be released from prison pending the appeal.
