ONTD Original: A look at the mess that is the Fifty Shades Trilogy (Part 2)


Since the Fifty Shades Trilogy has been deemed as an “ode to consent”, I thought I would highlight all the fuckery in these books and how it is the complete opposite. The trilogy has gone on to make $1 billion at the box office (vomit) because women have been sexually repressed and shamed for the longest so they naturally loved these books. Who doesn’t dream of marrying a billionaire with mommy issues that leaves ~love bites~ all over your body so you can’t wear revealing clothing?!

This will be a three part ONTD Original that is dedicated to every book in the trilogy.

Sony Pictures apologizes for their stupid as hell allergy scene in "Peter Rabbit"

Said Sony Pictures after the backlash this weekend (following up from the previous bullying post):

“Food allergies are a serious issue. Our film should not have made light of Peter Rabbit’s archnemesis, Mr. McGregor, being allergic to blackberries, even in a cartoonish, slapstick way. We sincerely regret not being more aware and sensitive to this issue, and we truly apologize.”

I just want another place to shit on this godawful movie. The scene being referenced is when the rabbits are attacking Domhnall Gleeson's character, and knowing he has a blackberry allergy, shoot one in his mouth, causing him to go into anaphylaxis (he saves himself with a epipen).

"Posters" targeting '3 Billboards' around L.A. to get Oscar voters to not choose it as BP

Right before the start of Oscars-voting period (from February 20-27, btw, so get ready for hardcore schmoozing next week), someone(s) who clearly hated 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' posted the above photo around LA, as noted by the Vanity Fair reporter who tweeted about it. No word yet on how many of these images have been planted around L.A., but it's a start.

'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' is one of the top contenders for best picture at this year's Oscars (thanks to its 3 SAGs and 4 GG wins as precursors), set for March 4th.

Quincy claimes Brando could 'charm the pants off anyone', and in this case he did..... Pryor's to be exact. Now children of the deceased Hollywood stars are refuting Quincy's outburst. Pryor's daughter Rain said that it never happened and now Brando's son Miko is backing up Rain.

Sexual Harassment in Children's Book Industry comes to light, Bestselling authors named as harassers

Writer Anne Ursu ran a survey about sexual harassment on the Children's Book Industry. She's recently posted the results, and they're as damning as you'd think. From NYT bestselling authors grabbing knees under the table, verbal and sexual assault happening in editorial offices and considered a "rite of passage", illustrators being inappropriate to students... you name it. Many cases were reported to conference management, and although they said they'd take steps, the authors were invited to speak in following conferences anyway.

I recommend reading the entire article for the full scope of the situation.

A second article, by the School Library Journal, also mentions cases relating to David Diaz and Guiseppe Castellano. After an outcry on twitter about whisper networks, and younger writers being afraid for themselves, some victims have taken to the SLJ article to name names. Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of NYT Bestsellers on it.

Collapse )

SCBWI, RWA, and other conference organizers have said they're taking measures to crack down on sexual assault. I hope they do, and don't just brush concerns aside like they've done before.

I've met some of these guys. Jay Asher was known for being a notable creep for YEARS (who had no business writing 13 Reasons Why), and Dashner was a bit too friendly. He creeped around me for a while at a conference, but I left early and didn't experience/witness anything (this is not to clear him, as my lack of experience doesn't mean he couldn't have harassed someone else). My heart broke when I heard of Sherman Alexie, because TADOAPI is an amazing book I will never read again.

To the victims coming forward: I hear you. Thank you for speaking.

Edited to add more names x2.


"Child’s Play" franchise creator Don Mancini is developing a Chucky TV series

  • Child's Play is turning 30 this year, and the franchise has maintained a consistent fanbase for the last 3 decades, which is why creator Don Mancini isn't planning on sending Chucky off into retirement any time soon.

  • The TV series won't be a reboot of the franchise, and it would directly continue from the ending of Cult of Chucky.

Lupita Nyong’o for Allure Magazine

“Lupita and I wanted to show that coil-y or kinky hair has many strengths and can be worn in lots of different ways, celebrating its beauty and versatility. Loving your true texture is important.”

"One thing I’ve learned was the acronym LOC, and that’s basically the rule for how to treat my hair: liquid, oil, and then cream. It’s the idea that you wet your hair first, then you add oil so that it can trap the moisture in, then you put a moisturizer or a cream over it. Shea butter, natural shea butter — no perfumes, no bleaches — which doesn’t smell great at all, but it does wonders to my hair."

ONTD Original: Five of the Best Dressed Men in Pink

Celebrity men that try and pull off pink in a suit and do it well is a rare feat. It's not easy to pull off that color and lewk without looking like you're going to your Senior Prom wearing an ill fitted suit. But you got a good deal at the suit store around the corner from the Subway you and your friends frequent at and honestly...you were feeling yourself that day. It won't be until five or six years later you look back at the photos and you think "what kind of hot pink mess." Luckily for the men in Hollywood and unfortunately for us, they had stylists to help ease the pink into a solid lewk. Here are five men who pulled it off well and looked like a tasty snack 🍫  while doing it.

♪ Push me up against the wall, don't take it easy. You like it hard like me, it's what you need. ♫ Zayn Malik is looking quite dapper and handsome with a white embroidered rose on his light pink suit by Richard James. The 25-year-old ocassional live performer wore this lewk at this year's boring 2018 Grammy Awards ceremony.

Cardi B : ‘Being a Feminist Is Real Simple’

Her take on feminism :
“Some people think feminism is great and only a woman that can speak properly, that has a degree, who is a boss, a businessperson… they think only Michelle Obama can be a feminist. But being a feminist is real simple; it’s that a woman can do things the same as a man. Anything a man can do, I can do. I can finesse, I can hustle. We have the same freedom. I was top of the charts. I’m a woman and I did that. I do feel equal to a man.”

The erasure of minority influence :
“The success of people like me scares people, that’s why they belittle us. If you’re a little scrawny man raised in a trailer in Alabama somewhere, of course you’re scared right now … They’re scared of the intelligence of the minority. We are a big influence and people want to take that shit away. People like Donald Trump, they’re always going to make us feel like we’re less. But it’s okay, because a bitch like me knows the truth.”

Kingdom Hearts III: Pixar on Monsters Inc. World, Tangled Voice Acting, Utada's New Theme + More

– Since two new trailers dropped on Saturday, Disney and Square Enix have been discussing the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III more, due to release sometime later this year.
– Pixar animator Tasha Sounart confirmed that the story in the Monsters Inc. world is an original story, much like the one in the Toy Story world, which takes place after Toy Story 2 but before Toy Story 3. This is indicated by the construction going on with the Monsters Inc. building as well as the balloons and various decorations indicating the Monster world is just beginning to transition off of using fear from children as a power source.
– SE has released full renders and screenshots of the new previews as well, showing off new outfits and monster designs of the lead and Disney characters.
– A special behind the scenes video was shared at the exclusive D23 event, including a preview of the Kingdom of Corona from the Tangled animated film. Rapunzel's hair (and her fighting Heartless with it) was very difficult to animate. A minigame based on the Giantland Mickey Mouse animated special (Disney's version of Jack and the Beanstalk) will appear in the game.
– Zachary Levi (Flynn in Tangled) has not yet been asked back to reprise his role, but voice recording is one of the last, late tasks of game development.

– Utada Hikaru will include the new theme "Chikai" or "Oath" on her upcoming seventh studio album later this year, teasing she might have to leak the full version if her album comes out before the game does. The song snippet and clips of KHIII appeared on Japanese television after the trailer dropped.

Guillermo Del Toro Says the Dildo Based off Shape of Water Creature is Not Accurate

“I don’t think it’s an accurate representation," said Del Toro of the sex toy. "It’s some form of fan art...I guess. I’m sure Dunkirk doesn’t have that problem."

XenoCat Artifacts, a dildo maker, made and sold dildos inspired by the creature in The Shape of Water. You never actually see the fish man's penis so it's their own imagining of what it would look like.

It's 100 percent silicon, glows under UV light, has “ruffled, gill-like” ridges and a “wave” shape and has four piercings. The medium dildo is 7 and-a-half inches and a 6-inch circumference at its widest point. The small is 6 inches long with a 4 and-a-half inch circumference.

They sold all 20 in just two days. They plan on doing another run of 20 dildos before the Oscars.

Rachel Weisz Speaks Out Against a Female James Bond

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Rachel Weisz spoke out against the idea of gender swapping the character of James Bond:

“[Fleming] devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular character, who is particularly male and relates in a particular way to women. Why not create your own story rather than jumping on to the shoulders and being compared to all those other male predecessors? Women are really fascinating and interesting and should get their own stories.”
