Julee Cruise Burns Her Bridge with David Lynch

Like a lot of fans, Julee Cruise wasn't happy about the finale. On her Facebook, she sounds insulted by the experience she had with David Lynch (the "Emperor") and executive producer Sabrina Sutherland (who she calls a "bitch") this time around whereas in previous posts she seemed excited and spoke positively about Lynch. She now even goes so far as to say that she was "bummed" when she heard the show was coming back and tried to avoid contact with them.

Girls Made of Snow and Glass, by Melissa Bashardoust (September 5)
At sixteen, Mina's mother is dead, her magician father is vicious, and her silent heart has never beat with love for anyone—has never beat at all, in fact, but she’d always thought that fact normal. She never guessed that her father cut out her heart and replaced it with one of glass. When she moves to Whitespring Castle and sees its king for the first time, Mina forms a plan: win the king’s heart with her beauty, become queen, and finally know love. The only catch is that she’ll have to become a stepmother.

Fifteen-year-old Lynet looks just like her late mother, and one day she discovers why: a magician created her out of snow in the dead queen’s image, at her father’s order. But despite being the dead queen made flesh, Lynet would rather be like her fierce and regal stepmother, Mina. She gets her wish when her father makes Lynet queen of the southern territories, displacing Mina. Now Mina is starting to look at Lynet with something like hatred, and Lynet must decide what to do—and who to be—to win back the only mother she’s ever known…or else defeat her once and for all.

Mexican pop singer Alex Syntek says "reggaeton comes from apes"



In an interview promoting his latest album, Alex Syntek spends 3.5 minutes shitting on reggaeton and blathering on and on about reggaeton artists' "plucked eyebrows and jewelry".

The whole rant was very "those thugs and their baggy jeans"

He later issued an apology via Twitter:
I admit I made a mistake in the way I spoke. I respect everyone who listens to reggaeton or does it for a living. It isn’t a genre I’m particularly attracted to, but I reaffirm my commitment to musical diversity and respect for everyone’s taste.

For those who don't know, reggaeton is a Latino musical genre which originated in the Afro-Panamanian community in Panama and made popular by artists like El General. In the 90s, it experienced a boom once it made its way to Puerto Rico and was further popularized throughout the world by mixtapes like The Noise series and artists like Baby Rasta y Gringo, Ivy Queen, Daddy Yankee and others. The genre is heavily influenced by Jamaican reggae and dancehall and is now dominated by Dominican and Puerto Rican artists.

Celebs react to report that Trump plans to end DACA

Background: DACA is a program created by then President Obama that protects young people—who were brought to the US as kids without papers—from being deported. Nearly 1 million have signed up for it. Politico reports that Trump will end the program in 6 months. At that point, all the people who signed up for DACA will be in grave danger of being deported—they're already registered with the government—back to countries where they will be total strangers. FYI, you'll often hear DACA-recipients referred to as DREAMers, that refers to the DREAM act, a proposed law that would grant all DACA-eligible people a pathway to citizenship.

Actress Alyssa Milano:

(Please, please do like the wonderful Alyssa suggests and visit that website. You can also text DACACall to 877-877 to get updates from United We Dream, one of the leading groups in this fight.)

Actress Gina Rodriguez:

Please call your member of congress (use this site to find out who they are and what their #s are) and tell them to #DefendDACA! There is actually a great deal of bipartisan support for DREAMers and DACA (the two biggest champions of the DREAM Act are Republican Senators Orrin Hatch and Lindsey Graham). So call your 3 members of congress regardless of party!

Japanese Game Developer Wants Britney Spears as the Villain in His Next Game

Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro, best known for Deadly Premonition and D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, is developing a new game, The Good Life, where you play as a photographer stuck in a backwoods town trying to pay off your massive debts. And also all the villagers in this town turn into cats at night as well as your player character. And the pastor's daughter gets murdered with an ancient sword

The game is still in the fundraising phase (for $1,500,000 so good luck with that), but Swery has recently tweeted thoughts about having Britney Spears in his game. As either the killer or maybe a joke mode where everyone turns into Britney at night

Why Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Was Actually A Huge Success, According To Jerry Bruckheimer

51163480945c71023dcd9da03adc64c7



According to producer Jerry Bruckheimer...

I think it did phenomenal. I mean, you're talking about the fifth [film] in the series in a down market, and the American dollar is so strong that we're getting less returns from foreign. This movie would've [made] a billion dollars had it been back in the same financial [situation as On Stranger Tides], but we lost 27 percent of our money just by the conversion rate... But god it's at what, $790 [million] now? It's amazing.

As to whether there will be a sixth Pirates movie: “Well, I hope we can continue to make it,” he said, “but you know we’ve been having so much fun just promoting this one right now that we’ll just have to wait and see. Hopefully it’s very successful on DVD as the other ones have been. Then hopefully we’ll sit down and see where we go.”
