Fox and Regency planted fake news about Trump and Putin meeting to promote "A Cure For Wellness"



- Articles were planted at The Sacramento Dispatch, Houston Leader, NY Morning Post, and Salt Lake City Guardian, all of which are "fake news" sites, about Trump and Putin meeting at a fictional Alpine institute featured in the movie prior to the election, trying to ride on reports and rumors of inappropriate contact, like what led to Michael Flynn's resignation Monday night.

- After Buzzfeed wrote about it and criticism rolled in, Fox and Regency issued a statement saying that since the movie is about a fake cure, they decided to market it with fake news stories, and tried to justify it with a quote from the movie's antagonist: "There is a sickness inside us. And only when we know what ails us, can we hope to find the cure."

- The fake news articles now redirect to the movie's website.

Apple Music will premiere Planet of the Apps this Spring



Apple is set to debut Planet of the Apps this Spring on Apple Music. The judges are Gary Vaynerchuk (VAYNERMEDIA), Gwyneth Paltrow (Goop), Will.i.am (i.am+), and Jessica Alba (The Honest Company). The concept of the show is teams do 60-second elevator pitches on an app to the four judges. Once selected by one of the four judges, then the judge + team meetup in front of VC firm Lightspeed Venture if the app is worth investing in.

The show will air on a weekly basis instead of all episodes being released at the same time.

OP has been following this for awhile now. This was recorded late 2016 and there has been recording this past month. Also, why is there no tech tag? :(

Another Apple Music Carpool Karaoke trailer

They keep releasing these, and yet somehow can't put when it's going to air? Fail, Apple.

Anyway, this trailer has more of what they will be singing, and also focuses on some of the stuff they'll be doing outside of karaoke in the car (since they are half hour eps for each pairing, they have to do non-singing stuff.)

Halle Berry Reflects on Her Three Divorces




“I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there’s children involved. [As] women, we go into marriage thinking it’s going to last forever and that this is our prince on a shiny horse. That’s what fairy tales taught me as a kid … and I’m kind of anti–fairy tales today.”

Carlos Santana has weighed in on the Grammy weekend controversy.

He said that Beyoncé is beautiful to look and that she models the music, while Adele performs without dancers and props because she is a singer.

Cool Japan? I don't know her: Avex enforces export ban on Blu-Rays, DVDs, and CDs


Are you a fan of Namie Amuro, Yuri on Ice, or One Piece? Are you planning on buying that new Koda Kumi album or the inevitable Ayu concert DVD to keep their careers afloat? Are you in need for your hot-guys-pretending-to-not-be-idols-but-are-really-idols fix via LDH DVDs? Are you waiting in anticipation for the next FEMM physical copy release? Well too bad, avex doesn't want your dirty gaijin money.

It has been initially reported that CDJapan (A popular site for buying Japanese physical CD/DVD copies overseas) sent an e-mail to their customers that Avex Pictures has placed an export ban on Blu-Rays, DVDs, and CDs. However, it is later revealed that this ban applies to anything that falls under Avex Group and its subsidaries (e.g., Avex Trax, Avex Pictures, Idol Street, etc). The ban will be enforced starting 6:00PM (Japan Time UTC+9) on Feburary 15th, 2017. Popular sites for international fans such as CDJapan and Amazon.jp promised to fulfill as many orders as possible before the deadline. However, it should be noted that some products affected by this export ban are already unavailable for shipping, so even if you try to buy something now, there is a chance that it's already too late. Avex has yet to comment regarding their decision to enforce this export ban.

Screenshots containing the e-mail, customer service response, and blocked attempts at ordering an Avex product can be found at the source.

Update: CDJapan's weibo account claims that the ban is strictly Avex Pictures and all other Avex divisions are excluded from the export ban, but Amazon Japan is preventing orders from other subsidaries' products, so whatisthetruth.jpeg

Tom Brady the Cockroach



- Before the Super Bowl, Zoo Atlanta and the Roger Williams Park Zoo in RI made a bet that the loser had to name a baby animal after the winning team's quarterback, and Zoo Atlanta revealed Tom Brady the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach on facebook today.

- Tom Brady will hiss when fighting or as part of his mating ritual, likes to eat decaying organic matter, and is a positive cockroach because he will survive the imminent nuclear war.

- Unfortunately, Atlanta doesn't get all the credit because both zoos agreed on the Madagascar hissing cockroach beforehand, but they probably knew how it would end due to their experiences with Atlanta sports.

Harrison Ford, who is okay, mistakenly landed on a taxiway at John Wayne Airport



- On Monday, Harrison Ford landed his Cessna on a taxiway instead of a runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County (which I think is like National in that it's terrifying to fly out of and was renamed after an asshole?), buzzing an American Airlines 737 that took off safely a few minutes later.

- Air traffic controllers gave him the right info, and he repeated it back, so it's unclear why he landed on the taxiway. He was heard to say "Was that airliner meant to be underneath me?" There will be an FAA investigation that could lead to a suspension of his license.

- Ford has had a couple of other incidents flying—including a crash due to engine failure in a WWII-era plane in 2015 and a helicopter crash in 1999—but NBC says that he's "revered as an excellent pilot in aviation circles."

ONTD Original: 4 Manga That Should Not Exist


ppRP.png





Hey y'all! While I'm working on my magnus opus Industry Plants (for my bae fka) and my K-pop recap, I wanted to post my highly subjective list of manga/animes that should not have been made. God did not intend for his children to use their gifts in such a way. These ain't mangas that are ugly, nor are they necessarily horrible but these the books with such awful premises that it makes you wonder if the writer was smoking crack when they came up with it. Shit you don't understand why anyone would read. These books could have the best storylines ever but were so poorly executed that no one would read it.

This list is entirely subjective, so y'all might find these worth reading. I didn't. That's why they're here.

Philip Pullman Announces A Follow-Up Trilogy To 'His Dark Materials'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After 17 years, Philip Pullman has announced a companion series to the His Dark Materials trilogy, with the first book, The Book of Dust, set for publication on October 19.

The original trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass) was published between 1995 and 2000. It was translated into 40 languages and sold over 17.5 million copies.

The new series will take place in the same world as the original trilogy and will include many of the same characters. The first book will take part several years before the original trilogy, and the second and third books will take place after. Pullman insists this isn't a continuation of the original story though, but a companion series.

Loads more information about it at the source.

Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes



About: The mega-talented creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder chronicles how saying YES for one year changed her life―and how it can change yours, too.

With three hit shows on television and three children at home, the uber-talented Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say NO when an unexpected invitation arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No.

And there was the side-benefit of saying No for an introvert like Shonda: nothing new to fear.

Then Shonda’s sister laid down a challenge: just for one year, try to say YES to the unexpected invitations that come your way. Shonda reluctantly agreed―and the result was nothing short of transformative. In Year of Yes, Shonda Rhimes chronicles the powerful impact saying yes had on every aspect of her life―and how we can all change our lives with one little word. Yes.
