Comedian Michael Ian Black calls the "winter White House" looking for answers





After creating a WH petition asking why he-who-must-not-be-named is such a "needy little bitch" and after later finding out from twitter followers that none of their signatures were showing up, Michael Ian Black decided to give a call to the "winter WH"(since the WH isn't accepting calls) to find out why.

Black Sails: Prequel comic "Rackham's Razor" + another short trailer + actress roundtable


Toby Schmitz has collaborated with comic artist Matthew Southworth to create an 18-page comic, "Rackham's Razor", that takes place in 1705 and shows us how Anne Bonny and Jack Rackham first met in London.

“It was a combination of a few things, I think. I wanted to show off a bit for the writers’ room, who I greatly admire. I wanted to put something together in screenplay form so I could show that I can have a crack at that kind of thing. Also, I was giving myself something to do. Everyone had to find something to do when we shot that show. Tom Hopper really worked on his fitness. Luke Arnold threw himself into his PlayStation. And I managed to make sure that I kept turning the word processor on and final draft on while I was over there. Anyway, it was an exercise for myself to sort of envision a sequence where Jack and Anne met for the first time.”

[...]

"I think that if anything that I’ve tried to draw on for the comic it’s that they both have a healthy disregard of bullies and the establishment. You could do a whole analysis of their relationship purely based on that, I think. They don’t like people in power who wield the power just for the sake of it. I think Anne Is in her element when she’s in action and I think Jack is in his element when he’s thinking an idea through. He finds the concept of concepts very exciting. Obviously together that’s a fun partnership. He’s more florid with his language and she’s more staccato. They complement each other. But they share a ground with a unique cellular bond that’s a little hard to put into words and the fact that they can’t stand The Man almost to a fault."

Click on through to IGN to read Toby's interview and the full comic of how pre-mullet Jack got demoted until he ended up on the redcoat ferry The Carcass and how Anne Bonny got her hat. (I didn't see any McGraw or Hennessy background cameos, what a missed opportunity!)

Starz has put out yet another 30s trailer, giving us another slightly new variation on the Long John Silver speech.

Luke, I love you, but soon your rumbling will drop out of human hearing range and we'll need specialized equipment to make out what you're saying. (Merch opportunity for Starz?) Don't go full Vane.

Over on The Daily Beast is a short but sweet roundtable, "Who run Nassau?", with the main ladies of Black Sails, incl a rare appearance of Madi's actress Zethu Dlomo. Highlight: Clara's "I feel you, babe" when Zethu mentions the badassness of being a woman on a ship of men and calling the shots.

Usain Bolt stripped of historic gold medal after teammate doping case



Usain Bolt has been stripped of his relay gold medal from the 2008 Olympics in the doping case of relay teammate Nesta Carter.

It means the Jamaican sprinter, who won nine Olympic gold medals, has lost his historic 'triple triple' medal haul.

Nesta Carter was found to have tested positive for methylhexaneamine, a banned substance.
He was part of the Jamaican quartet that won the 4x100m in Beijing in 2008 and Bolt was a teammate along with Michael Frater and Asafa Powell.

Trinidad and Tobago is in line to get the gold medal from 2008, Japan could be upgraded to silver, and fourth-place finisher Brazil could get the bronze medal.

ONTD Original: Kpop songs that would've sound great with your favorite Popstars

Kpop, musically is far more interesting than "american" music. Sometimes there's songs that stick out, cause they sound like they could be featured in your favorite western popstar album, so here's a list of Kpop songs that could've fit your favorite popstar:

AFTERSCHOOL- Flashback for Britney
not only is this song a banger, but that break is straight up the prequel of the "Hold it against me" break.

Sneak Peek of (Possibly) Fifth Harmony New Music

Producer Sebastian Kole (worked with Alessia Cara) live streamed on Periscope a studio session with Fifth Harmony's Ally and Dinah Jane who are currently working on their 3rd album. At some moment, you can hear music in the background with the 2 girls voices. There's also a male voice. It could be a collaboration with another artist or maybe they'll eventually replace the male voice with Normani's or Lauren's.

The Surprising Foods Celebs Refuse to Eat



Tom Brady apparently has never had a strawberry or coffee.

Khloe Kardashian and Nicolas Cage refuse to eat pork. Khloe says she rather gain 10 lbs than eat pork. Nicolas Cage says he chooses what he eats based on how animals have sex.

I shit you not.

He believes fish and birds have dignified sex (whatever the fuck that means) and pigs don't.

Riverdale's Camila Mendes For The Coveteur



“My version of Veronica is a bit different from the comics, it still maintains the same essence as the character in the comics. In the comics she’s very snobby and confident, and thinks very highly of herself. In this version she’s a lot sweeter, she’s trying to be a better person, she’s trying to reinvent herself [after a scandal that] brought a lot of shame and embarrassment to her family, so she is recovering from that a little bit. She’s humbled”

Michael Rappaport is mad at Aziz Ansari for being "racially provocative"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Michael Rappaport, an actor notable for being in Dr. Doolittle 2 and some show called Pound Puppies (and Boston Public and Justified I guess but whatever) took to his podcast to go off on Aziz Ansari's Saturday Night Live monologue, where Ansari compared Chris Brown to Donald Trump:

"Obviously, nobody supports beating women. Okay. This guy has obviously suffered, you see all the trouble he has and all the trouble that surrounds him. He’s definitely dealing with some sh*t, and dealing with his own personal demons. But Aziz Ansari, you are one of these holier-than-thou politically correct police. This little f*ck. Mr. racial, he’s like Mr. provocative… he’s like ‘oh the brown people this.’ And on the show…he’s always talking about the brown people and I get that… Aziz Ansari, Mr. f*cking racially provocative, Mr. f*cking button pusher"

“I’m not saying he’s not funny, I’m not saying he’s not talented, and I’m not saying his voice is not warranted. But you are not holier-than-thou...If I were you, I’d keep Chris Brown’s name out of your mouth"
