Cartoon Network Once Again Drops The Ball and Five New Steven Universe Episodes Leak

With starting off a new year, Cartoon Network continues it's old tradition of accidentally leaked Steven Universe episodes. The new Steven Universe episodes were suppose to air starting January 30th with another Steven Bomb premiering five new episodes throughout the week. Cartoon Network though mistakingly uploaded all the episodes onto their app making them accessible for a short time before taking them down but you can still find the episodes online throughout the internet. Two significant members that work on Steven Universe, Matt Burnett (writer) and Michaela Dietz (voice of Amethyst) commented on the most recent leaks.

Luke Arnold talks Black Sails, really wants you to know how much Silver cares for Flint

Luke Arnold recently guested on the Black Sails fancast Fathoms Deep to discuss the show at length.

You can listen to it in full at the source, but I also took a treasure chest full of notes. (The full interview is worth it though, so much in-depth analysis!)

  • Resident Treasure Island expert among the cast.

  • His favourite episodes are 303 (the doldrums/shark date) and 409, hasn’t seen 410 yet.

  • “Thing that switches on behind [Toby Stephen’s] eyes between “action” and “cut”, it’s something else. [...] When Flint comes out, it’s really bizarre, and [...] in season three, around the same time, myself, Luke Roberts and Toby Schmitz all had [...] to look Flint in the eye, and have a moment. And after each of them the three of us would get together and go, “Guys, this gotta be it. I stared into Flint today.””

In conclusion: Luke is possibly the biggest Toby Stephens fan out there and has a lot of deep thoughts about character development, narrative, overarching themes, and the joys of kicking someone’s head in while a rotation of stage hands use toothbrushes to attractively spray you with fake blood.

rita ora lost thousands of pounds on festival urinating device

- rita hoped to revolutionized outdoor music festivals by releasing a new device, which would help women urinate standing up so they wouldn’t have to lose their place in front of the stage
- unfortunately, the project didn’t work out, leading the mogul-supermodel-megastar to describe it as one of the “worst” investments she ever made
- “it let you wee on the spot so you don’t lose your spot after waiting for live five hours. it fell through and it looked weird and i thought, ‘i can’t be bothered to do this, you know what, just wee on the floor.’ that is one of my worst investments. when women need to go we need to go, guys don’t have that problem when you need to go you just post up on the corner and let it go.”

Anna Kendrick discusses sexism and feminism in Hollywood in Glamour UK

On the wider issue of sexism in Hollywood:

“It shouldn’t be the most important conversation about sexism – because no one really wants to fucking hear actors talk about this, because we’re in such positions of privilege… I would love to hear more about sexism that exists in other fields and how we can address that – but we keep getting asked about it.”

When asked if she thinks celebrities have a responsibility to use their platform to talk about ‘issues’:

“Well, it’s weird, isn’t it, because I feel like why would anybody want my ‘expert opinion’ on any of these topics? If you want to learn about intersectional feminism, read Roxanne Gay, don’t ask me, you know? I’m being asked to speak on these things when I’m trying to learn about them myself.”


Are you too privileged to talk about sexism, ONTD?

Dustin Lance Black: I have no respect for actors who hide their sexuality

Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black has said he has no respect for actors who lie about their sexuality.

Black, who is engaged to the British Olympic diver Tom Daley, said: “I have no respect for someone who lies about their sexuality. At the very least say ‘no comment’, just keep your personal life personal. If you’re going to closet yourself, that sends a negative message.”

He said: “I’ve never encountered homophobia in casting from the studios or networks – not once, not ever. Where you encounter it is with the agents and the managers, they’re the ones who have an outdated notion of the price an actor might pay if it’s discovered that they’re LGBTQ. Often they don’t want to see anything happen that might compromise their investment.”

He added: “I think they cripple their actors because they stunt the star’s ability to be open and honest, and an audience can feel that.”


Angelina Jolie Rips Brad Pitt in New Filing: He's 'Terrified the Public Will Learn the Truth'

Angelina Jolie Will Seal Custody Documents.

Angelina's Lawyer Claims Brad Pitt Is Afraid ‘Public Will Learn the Truth’

“There is little doubt that [Brad] would prefer to keep the entire case private, particularly given the detailed investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Dept. of Children and Family Services into allegation of abuse,” state the court documents.

“The kids are traumatized. The mom has been protecting the kids by not revealing what really happened on that plane. Her interest since the outset hasn’t changed: to protect the health and safety of the kids.”

Adam Driver says that fans can expect Kylo Ren to show "humanity" in Episode VIII

Speaking to Larry King, Adam Driver explained how Kylo Ren will show a new side in Episode VIII - and it might not be what you would expect.

Larry: Without giving away any spoilers, what’s one aspect about Kylo Ren you’re excited you’re excited for fans to see in the next film?

Adam: I think, erm, maybe this is such a general answer but you know – humanity. Even though it’s very much a blockbuster movie, there was no taking that for granted and that we were forced to be general. There was a lot of plot points that we knew were operating in the first one, that we get to explain more in the second one, to make both of them make sense. But they do kind of feel socially active to me, and George Lucas originally, a lot of Star Wars was in response to Vietnam and a lot of what I remember talking about with JJ and Rian was this idea of terrorism, and two sides being morally justified to behave however they wanted to to get whatever they thought was absolutely correct.

Adam Driver is also pictured at the New York Critics Circle awards on 3 January.

So ONTD - what do you make of Adam's comments here/what do you think they indicate about what they might do with the character in Episode VIII?
