12 Nonfiction Books On Death, Dying, And The Afterlife To Answer All Of Your Morbid Questions

'Stiff' & 'Spook' by Mary Roach



Stiff

About: Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadavers―some willingly, some unwittingly―have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.

Spook

About: "What happens when we die? Does the light just go out and that's that―the million-year nap? Or will some part of my personality, my me-ness persist? What will that feel like? What will I do all day? Is there a place to plug in my lap-top?" In an attempt to find out, Mary Roach brings her tireless curiosity to bear on an array of contemporary and historical soul-searchers: scientists, schemers, engineers, mediums, all trying to prove (or disprove) that life goes on after we die.

sorry 'Breaking Bad' fans, another bad thing is coming to an end...



In lighthearted, but possibly devastating news for television viewers and fans, an iconic location used by AMC for its acclaimed series 'Breaking Bad' will have limited access and viewing to the public.

The owners of the home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the series is set announced this week that they will be erecting a fence to keep rabid fans of the show at bay. After years of reports of possible trespassing, people removing items from the property, and even re-enacting an iconic scene from the show where the protagonist, Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston), throws a pizza on the house's roof in anger, the owners are saying "sorry, but no more".

Home resident, Joanne Quintana, went on record saying that while the fans have mostly been a welcome sight, over the years and after the aforementioned reports of misbehavior, it's time to move on.

""We feel like we can't leave because when we, do something happens and that's ridiculous," said Quintana.

The announcement comes just Albuquerque kicked off its annual International Balloon Fiesta, in which it's been reported in previous years that tourists, spectators, and balloon enthusiasts cause the city's population to nearly double. Fiesta visitors this week could very well be in on the location's last hurrah.

Where will you throw your pizzas in anger from now on, ONTD?

Batman writer Chuck Dixon is apparently going to be doing a comic with alt-righter Vox Day




Vox Day (the guy behind the "Rabid Puppies" campaign) has been crowdfunding for an alt-right comic book called Alt★Hero. Characters include "a Confederate flag clad heroine named Rebel and Michael Martel, a vigilante who drops off criminal undocumented immigrants at the local Immigration and Customs Enforcement office."

He will apparently be joined by famous Batman writer Chuck Dixon (still working at DC with a series about Bane), who is known for his right-wing politics.

Vox has quoted Dixon as saying "These guys get me and I get them. Escapist entertainment, big outrageous ideas and all built on a foundation of principles that rejects the gloomy, preachy, bitterness of post-modern comics."

● While still running the label out of an apartment A-list actresses like Renée Zellweger (Oscar winner that year for Miramax's Cold Mountain), Cate Blanchett (The Aviator) & Diane Kruger (National Treasure) were seen wearing the little known Marchesa brand to their major movie premieres (which also happen to be Disney/Miramax films)

Under the pseudonym "Gale Weathers" (perhaps to cleverly tie things back to outspoken survivor Rose McGowan, who starred in Scream, or, more likely, to cowardly avoid any accountability for whomever truly wrote the "article"), Dread Central wrote:

Rose McGowan confirms Harvey Weinstein raped her

In 2016 McGowan revealed in an interview she had been raped by a movie executive without naming who it was.

Since the New York Times allegations against Weinstein came out last Thursday McGowan has been actively supporting the victims on twitter, and implying she was one herself. She has also called on the entire board of the Weinstein Company to resign.

She has not explicitly named Weinstein before which she hinted was due to a settlement that likely included a NDA (non disclosure agreement).

Today she tweeted at Amazon head Jeff Bezos that she had told the head of studio that "HW" had raped her.

She confirmed to THR that HW did infact refer to Harvey Weinstein.

I know a lot of people may think of this as old news but it's the first time she's said it in public, putting herself at risk.

Taylor Swift Could Learn A Thing Or Two From Eminem's Trump Takedown




-Eminem did what Taylor won't, that is, disavow Trump and risk losing a large part of their fan base. “And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his/ I’m drawing in the sand a line, you either for or against.” he proclaimed.

-Celebs lashing out against Tramp is not new, but when George Clooney and Meryl Streep do it, it does not have as much impact in the liberal echo sexual assault chamber that is Hollywood as it does with artists like Eminem, whose state voted for Trump and is also home to the soon-to-be senator and 45 supporter, Kid Rock.

Colton Haynes opens up about his mental health on Instagram



Colton uploaded a selfie and a short paragraph for Mental Health Day earlier this week: "Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay . This is a photo I took of myself about a month ago when I had reached a point where I had no idea what to do. I had been in bed crying/paralyzed for 3 wks with no explanation. My personal life & career were at an all time high. I've talked about this before but I can't stress enough how important it is to seek help when your feeling down or in your darkest moments. I've struggled with Anxiety & Depression since I was in the 5th grade & it's not something that should go untreated or uncared for. I know a lot of people don't understand mental illness & pass it off as ppl being dramatic...but it's a chemical Imbalance that no one wants to struggle through. It's not easy. So let's all take a second to reach out to those in need of help & those who just need someone to talk to or some encouragement. A little love goes a long way. My heart is with my fellow survivors & ppl struggling through this disease...you aren't alone."

Jason Momoa issues apology over GOT rape joke



- Back in 2011, at Comic Con, Jason Momoa made this inappropriate joke. It was in reference to his character Khal Drogo:

"As far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that genre because there are so many things you can do, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat and get away with it and rape beautiful women”

- Today, the video was making its rounds on Twitter and Jason issued an apology on his Instagram

"I awoke in Australia to the justified reactions by many people to a distasteful joke I made years ago in Hall H for which I am sorry,” Momoa said. “I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. I know my sincerest apology now won’t take away those hurtful words. Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends.”
He continued: “I made a truly tasteless comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologize with a heavy heart for the words I said.”


- Jason will play Aquaman in the Justice League movie next month. And in a solo Aquaman movie next year

Edit: The woman who posted the vid has taken it down and her Twitter is locked. I hope she wasn't getting threats. :(

Producer Isa Hackett accuses Amazon exec Roy Price of sexual harassment

Isa Hackett, a producer on The Man In The High Castle (and daughter of the author of the books on which the production is based), accused Amazon exec Roy Price of sexual harassment today.

She alleges Price told her "You will love my dick" when they were in a cab together after a comic-con event and headed for a work related party. Once at the party he leaned into her and said "Anal sex!" loudly in her ear. She made it clear she wasn't interested.

Price comes from a Hollywood connected family and is the son of Frank Price who once ran Columbia and Universal Studios. He produced the Oscar winning film Manchester By The Sea last year for which Casey Affleck took home Denzel Washington's Best Actor award. He has since been suspended from his job.

Amazon issued a statement saying "We take seriously any questions about the conduct of our employees...We expect people to set high standards for themselves; we encourage people to raise any concerns and we make it a priority to investigate and address them. Accordingly, we looked closely at this specific concern and addressed it directly with those involved."

Woody Allen is part of the Weinstein scandal-- will Hollywood address it this weekend?

As Hollywood and the media comes to grips with the facts of Harvey Weinstein's fall from grace, a common thread comes up over and over-- silence and complicity. There is one aspects to this situation which the media has largely ignored, and that is the role Harvey Weinstein had in protecting other sexual predators... and particularly, Woody Allen.

Ronan Farrow, Woody Allen's son, wrote the blistering expose that brought to light claims of not only sexual harassment against Weinstein, but rape. Weinstein is now known as a sexual predator, and in the 1990s he protected Woody Allen from the scandal of marrying his adopted daughter, barely of age, and leaving naked photos of her as an underage girl at home. NBC Apparently has tried to claim that Farrow's connection to Weinstein through his father is part of why they wouldn't run the story.
