Grimes is changing her name and Elon Musk loves it

grimes.jpg

Grimes is changing her name to c, the scientific symbol for the speed of light, which would make her legal name c Boucher instead of Claire Boucher. Stans need not worry since Grimes is still her musician name. Since coupling, stans have been a little curious about her choices lately, wearing a choker co-designed by Musk and removing and adding again "anti-imperialist" on her Twitter bio.

Grimes has come under a little heat since the new couple came out from those who see a conflict with an "anti-imperialist" who penned a feminist manifesto dating a multi-billionaire whose company was accused of racial harassment, anti-gay harassment, exploiting foreign workers, and intimidating union workers. Justine Wilson, who was his first wife, said he called himself the alpha, told her she read too much and to dye her hair blond. Musk also claimed he can't be happy single.

Grimes and Musk met through Twitter about mutual interest Roko’s Basilisk, a thought experiment about A.I.

Adnan Syed Will Be The Subject Of New HBO Documentary + True Crime Roundup

ontd2


*Adnan Syed will be the subject of a new four-hour docu-series on HBO. HBO claims to have new evidence on the case.

Syed was convicted of murdering his girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, in 1999. The NPR podcast Serial made his case famous and cast doubt on his conviction.

He has been granted a new trial, but the prosecution has filed a motion to prevent it.

The State of Maryland granted him a new trial because his lawyer failed to call a witness who claims to have seen him at the time of the murder. A friend of victim Hae Min Lee claims that the witness is unreliable and is "riding the publicity" from the case.

Courtney Act's rise of a drag superstar and HIV awareness spokesperson

courtneyact.jpg

Courtney made top 3 of Drag Race's season 6 and appeared on Big Brother, being a voice of rationality in a show that's known for clownery. Since the show, she's still singing with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra (the first drag queen to do it) and modelling for American Apparel.

Now, Courtney became the spokesperson for "Ending Hiv NZ", a New Zealand based campaign for HIV awareness. “An ex-boyfriend of mine is living with HIV,” Act shared for the campaign.

“He has an undetectable viral load so I know first-hand how this can affect people in a serodiscordant couple – which is where one partner is HIV-negative and one is HIV-positive. It was great to know he could have much better health in the long-run and that scientific evidence shows he was unable to pass on HIV on to me, even without condoms.
We live in a fear-based world where HIV stigma can prevail, but armed with science and facts I was able to break down the stigma in my own mind and be in a happy and healthy relationship with my partner.”

The HIV stigma still looms large over the community, where poz people receive hate for simply putting themselves out there. Educating people, no matter what sexuality, helps with lowering new HIV cases and a better understanding of poz people and their condition.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer series finale 'Chosen' turns 15 today!



-15 years ago on this date BTVS aired their last episode!

-+Buffy and Angel finally reunite on screen for the first time since Joyces death in S5. In the first draft of the script Angel reveals that he had a relationship with Cordelia and that he had a son but was ultimately cut so as to not confuse the audience who didn't watch Angel.

-TheWB would get their last chance to screw the show over by announcing that Spike would be joining Angel for it's 5th season a week before the finale ended and thus making Spikes death lose it's impact.

-Joss wanted to kill a big character during the battle that was sudden and unexpected, since he wouldn't kill the core 4 he chose Anya to die and since Emma Caulfied decided that she was done with the show after S7 regardless, she didn't mind being killed off.

-Joss also stated that he had planned on bringing Tara back to life with The Powers That Be giving Buffy 1 wish but it was scrapped due to Amber Benson being unavailable.

Where are they now? MADtv season 5 cast

Anarchic and weird, the skit show MADtv was SNL's rebellious younger sibling. The show ran from 1995 to 2009 and was the first big gig of many career comedians like Key & Peele (who met on the show), Ike Barinholtz and Bobby Lee. This Where are they now? post will focus on the cast for season 5 (1999), when the show was arguably at its peak. While MADtv is pretty mean-spirited and problematic by today's standards the talent of the performers (and the obvious, natural friendships between them) and its iconoclastic spirit made it a late 90s fave.

Debra Wilson

Signature roles: Whitney, Oprah, Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Jackson, Mariah, Beyonce
The high-energy, heavily tattooed performer with the amazing voice (Wilson is also a voice actress who among other things provided voice acting for an iconic episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) has had a pretty lowkey career post MADtv. Today she works with several animal charities and does a lot of voice work, especially for video games.
