LA Celebrity-Funded Theater Owner Resigns Amid Sexual Assault Allegations



The Cinefamily is a popular Los Angeles repertory theater that is sponsored (and frequented) by many celebrities.

An anonymous e-mail sent out on Monday to Cinefamily employees past and present, as well as its famous donors and board members, alleged that Hadrian Belove, its co-founder, has a string of sexual misconduct lawsuits (as well as additional allegations) following in his wake. It also alleges that several Cinefamily board members are complicit in covering up said harassment. This e-mail soon became a viral post shared widely first on Facebook, then Twitter.

Cinefamily's donors include:
The Walt Disney Company, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros Entertainment, Legendary Pictures, Creative Artists Agency, Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, Jodie Foster, Jon Favreau, Robert Zemeckis, Brett Ratner

Cinefamily's advisory board includes:
Brie Larson, Elijah Wood, Spike Jonze, Richard Linklater, Michael Cera, Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Terrence Malick, Christina Oh, Michael Lehmann, Stephin Merritt, Dana Gould, Allison Anders, Alex Kurtzman, Miguel Arteta, Liz Goldwyn

Although included in the initial anonymous e-mail, as well as reached out to on social media, the names listed above have yet to comment.

ETA: Jay Duplass just liked a tweet which said: "I'm extremely proud to be in the @cinefamily and believe that trial by facebook and twitter are destructive to all humans involved."

This is especially uncute after several more female ex-employees have corroborated not only the contents of the anonymous e-mail but added that it only scrapes the surface of the abuse covered up by the company.

A player told Andy Murray: "Maybe you should tell them that you're considering working with a dog."



In a new interview with Elle, Andy Murray talks about the sexism in tennis and about the reaction he got for hiring Amelie Mauresmo as his coach. Here are some notable quotes.

"When it first came out in the press that I may be working with a woman, I got a message from one of the players who is now coaching. He said to me: I love this game that you're playing with the press; maybe you should tell them tomorrow that you're considering working with a dog," Murray says. "That's the sort of stuff that was said when I was thinking about it."

"The amount of criticism she got in comparison to any other coach I've ever worked with—it's not comparable at all," Murray says. "Now, when I lose a match, I get the blame. When I was working with her, it was always her fault."

"There's a perception that women don't handle pressure as well as men do, but it's not true," Murray goes on. "A lot of the top men are very, very emotional on the courts. Not all of them. But some of them. And I would be one. I don't handle my emotions particularly well in comparison to a lot of the women. If you talked about the worst-behaved tennis players, most of them would be men."

RuPaul's Drag Race Star Alaska Thunderfuck Has Advice for Taylor Swift

• Drag Race star Alaska Thunderfuck eliminated many fan favorites on RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars resulting in fans of the show using the snake emoji all throughout her socials.

• Reclaimed the negativity and the villain narrative into her brand and included snakes into her wardrobe.

Alaska on Swift: "Straight people love to steal from drag queens. It happens all the time. But luckily I love to inspire young artists. The truth is, people who have longevity are able to be aware of their public perception and take it and use it and make it for work them. So bravo to Taylor. I never stopped liking her and still do. But if she thinks she's the Queen of Snakes, she is terribly mistaken."

G.R.R.M. does not watch Game of Thrones


  • The gurm just doesn’t have the time to watch because of writing and "touring". (flkgjdlfkslmdmgkds) “The book series and TV adaptation go their separate ways. On the screen characters are killed right and left. About twenty of them have died already, which are quite alive to me and will appear in a new book.”



  • He attributes the succes of the show to the HBO formula: “Epic fantasy was born with the advent of "The Lord of the Rings" by Tolkien. After that, there were very popular book series - for example, made by Robert Jordan and Terry Brooks. Nevertheless, they remained being made for teenagers. And if they were made a series, then it would be a story for children about magic and dragons. HBO, which launched the "Game of Thrones,”pushed through all these conventions. They left a complicated plot, sex and violence.”



  • "When will “The Winds of Winter” be released?" Who the fuck knows. "I did not start to write slower over the years. I was working on the first book for six year and four years on the second one. Fantasists who release their novels every year, do not offer books of large volume. These are not 1.5k pages like mine, but, for example, 500. In addition, I have not become younger. Age does not add enthusiasm.”

Game of Thrones director teases "something surprising" to come for Stark sisters in finale




There are a million interviews with the cast/crew since Sunday's episode, but this one really stuck out.

Director Alan Taylor said the following regarding Sunday's finale (SPOILERS ABOUND) -

[GOT finale teaser]“I love the fact that these two come back, they’re both lethal, and I just wanted to give the impression, as much as possible, that one of them is going to die. But you’re not sure which one.”

“Something is coming very soon between them, and it will be violent but surprising.”


Mind you, he could have been fucking around, but something is happening. Yes, the post title is vague (obviously) but the spoiler info explains why I kept that vague.

Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to share screenshots from what looks to be a web forum where anonymous users have commented—and critiqued—everything from her and husband John Legend's decision to have their daughter Luna via IVF to her status as an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. The commenters even attacked the model and cookbook author for her recent admission that she has made the decision to cut back on her alcohol intake.

Lambs Unite w/ Taylucifers to Block Despacito From Hot 100 Record



As you all know, One Sweet Day's 16 weeks @ #1 record on the Hot 100 aint safe! Despacito is currently on track to tie the record next week @ 16 weeks. Mariah has held on to the record for over 21 years since the track was released in 1995.

It was probably going to get 17 weeks too until Terror Swift announced that she will release her new single "Slither", this Friday.

Some Messiah stans are reluctantly rallying around Swift's new music as a last attempt to save Mimi's chart legacy.

Will Despacito still snatch anyway?

Tig Notaro Wants Louis CK to Come Clean on Sexual Misconduct Allegations



Multiple female comedians have alleged that Louis CK has been inappropriate with them, accusing him of exposing himself and masturbating in front of them and making them watch. Comedian Jen Kirkman was the first to allege such misconduct on a podcast and more women came forward after.

Louis CK produces Tig Notaro's series One Mississippi and also sold her cancer series on his website. Nevertheless, she says he is not involved with the show in any creative way and has gone on to urge him to come clean about his alleged behavior: "I think it’s important to take care of that, to handle that, because it’s serious to be assaulted. It’s serious to be harassed. It’s serious, it’s serious, it’s serious."

Her show actually deals with a situation very similar to Louis CK's alleged misconduct: "That’s what we want to do with this show. We of course want to create comedy, but we also really, really feel like we have the opportunity to do something with One Mississippi, because it does not stop. And, you know, I walk around doing shows at comedy clubs and you just hear from people left and right of what some big-shot comedian or person has done. People just excuse it."

Billy Joel wears yellow star during concert in NYC



Billy Joel wore a Yellow star (which Jewish people were forced to wear in Nazi occupied areas) during his Madison Square Garden concert encore. Joel is a secular Jew whose father and grandparents came to America as refugees (through Cuba since America was not accepting Jewish refugees) during WWII.

His ex-wife Christie Brinkley and Alexa Ray Joel responded positively to his gesture. Joel wouldn't talk about why he wore the symbol but it seems to be a response to the white supremacist march in Charlottesville. He had his rep issue the statement: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

HAWAII

Shark Dialogues, Kiana Davenport
861339
Set mainly in contemporary Hawaii, it is a spectacular odyssey through fire and water, a journey that begins in the nineteenth century with the fateful meeting of a Yankee sailor and the runaway daughter of a Tahitian chief. Sweeping from that distant past into the present turbulent decade, Kiana Davenport has woven an astonishing, compassionate portrait of her people, one of personal and political complexities - a surreal and provocative, wise and erotic tale of villains and dreamers, of "stone-eaters" and queens, of revolutionaries, and of lepers and healers. Central to all is the matriarch Pono, a statuesque, pure-blooded Hawaiian, a kahuna, or seer, whose past is shrouded in mystery. Pono's love for Duke Kealoha - a man hidden from the world, a man his daughters and granddaughters have never knownis one of the most haunting love stories of our time, a love that lasts through sixty years, a love so profound she "dares everything, commits every conceivable act for him."
