Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Came Out On This Day In May 1980


– Premiering on May 21, 1980 in US theaters, the sequel to the mega popular Star Wars film had a lot to live up to. It released to mixed reviews and a lower box office gross then the original before it eventually gained the legacy and respect it has today. The Empire Strikes Back defined countless movies tropes and trilogies to this very day, but also caused many sad people to compare every disputed piece of media they like to what happened specifically here, like that Reylo fic last December, The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, or season two of NBC's Timeless.
– The original draft by Leigh Bracket was much different. Including hostile, vanishing ice monsters on Hoth, a much more overt love triangle, Vader not being Luke's father and Leia not being Luke's sister, and Lando as a veteran clone from the fabled Clone Wars, Bracket established the skeleton plot that Lawrence Kasdan and George Lucas would later go on to refine, but sadly she passed away from cancer in 1978, only a few weeks after turning in her first draft. Her work endured particularly in the Bespin scenes and most everything with Yoda. You can read it in full here, ft. notes and annotations.
– Lucas wanted to fund the film out of his own pocket, so as to prevent any future interference from Fox Studios. Lucas at the time was also establishing Lucasfilm (a curse on us all tbh) and further innovating film technology at Industrial Light and Magic. For this entry, he took a step back from writing and asked his former USC professor to direct, but stayed on of course for the story and as executive producer (a blessing on us all tbh).
– His original idea for Star Wars II can be seen in the novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye, where Luke and Leia crash land on a jungle planet and face off against Darth Vader in a race against time to find an ancient crystal. Other ideas for TESB that were developed later for the franchise include a city planet (Coruscant, The Phantom Menace), a water planet (Kamino, Attack of the Clones), and Darth Vader having his own castle (Mustafar, Rogue One).

Chvrches: ‘It only takes two seconds to say: I don’t agree with white supremacy'


Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry talked about some of the issues women in the music industry face and how she deals with them.

Lauren is currently on an internet break because people kept photoshopping cum on her face, but when starting out she used to run the band's Facebook page and was bombarded with rape threats. When speaking about the online harassment, Lauren says the band now gives venues a list of names and photographs of certain people who have been most aggressive and when they come in to watch the show, they're flanked by security guards because the venues aren't allowed to stop them from attending.

Lauren says she's always going to get questions about what it's like to be a girl in a band, so she's going to make the most of it and use those conversations as an opportunity to speak about these issues and to not let them be swept under the rug.

She adds that politics are a part of her life so it would be inauthentic for her to not discuss them and it only takes "two seconds of your life" to say you don't agree with white supremacy, homophobia, etc.

Lauren also explained that she thinks the MeToo hasn't hit the music industry the way it's hit the film industry because the film industry is smaller, more unionized and people are going for the same parts whereas in music, everyone's off working on their own projects.

Along with the MeToo movement, she says that people who are already successful need to make sure their actions back up their words and to stop working with these directors and producers and making money off of the people who are oppressing others.

First photos from Oscar hopeful 'Boy Erased', starring Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe & Lucas Hedges




EW released the first photos from Oscar bait 'Boy Erased' starring and directed by Joel Edgerton, and also starring Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges in the lead, alongside Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe (as his parents).

The movie is based on Garrard Conley's memoir, about the son of a Baptist pastor who was outed by his parents at 19 years old, and was forced to either lose his entire family or go to a conversion therapy program to erase the gay away or whatever nonsense they spew, and everything that came from his decisions. The movie's set for a September 28 release.

Paris Jackson wants you to know that her relationship with her family is none of your business


Paris Jackson was criticized over social media for not attending the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and missing her aunt Janet Jackson's Billboard Icon Award performance.

• It started when Austin Brown (Rebbie's son) shared a photo of Janet's performance on Instagram. “Couldn't be more proud of my aunt for not only delivering a stellar performance but also showing people greatness is ageless. Congrats on your Icon award.” Paris Jackson replied via a screenshot on Instagram Stories on Monday and wrote “Ditto.”

• Paris then responded to the criticism via Instagram Strories saying: “Dear social media followers, friends, stalkers, lovers and haters, and fellow moonwalkers: Please do not tell me/demands/try to control how I handle my relationship with the people in my life, specifically my family. As amazing and as shitty as things can be, it is no one's business but ours. I understand that some of you feel some sort of connection or need to be a part of our lives considering you watched us grow up. However, I am handling my situation exactly how my father did. And I am happy keeping it that way. I will always have love and respect for my family. ALWAYS. There is nothing more or less than that, that you need to know.”

• Jackson added, “Every family has their moments of trauma, heartbreak, separation, love, oneness, tribe, pain, everything. EVERY FAMILY. My family, specifically, and a good number of others...well, our drama is broadcasted worldwide through media. But that doesn't mean our family issues are any different from yours. Ours are just made public. Every level has another devil. Every life has their own shit to deal with. We ain't inferior or superior to y'all. We're all fucking human. So let's act like it. I appreciate any and every person reading this and I'm grateful for everything in my life, positive and negative.”

• Later and before signing off, Paris added: “Also not to mention, no one from my mgmt reached out to me about attending billboards or about the award, and no one from my family did either. I had absolutely no idea until y'all spammed me with hatred.”

• Her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, brother Prince Jackson and aunt Rebbie Jackson were all in attendance to watch Janet Jackson perform and receive her Icon award.

ONTD Original: Ten of the Worst K-Pop Debut Songs (Groups).

Girl's Day - Tilting My Head

Girl's Day hit the scene in 2010 with Tilting My Head, argubly one of the worst K-Pop debuts ever. Sojin has commented on how embarassing the song was to her at the time. Why was it so embarassing? The neon drenched, overly comical fashion is an assualt on the eyes. The jarring autotune does nothing to showcase the girl's vocals. If you forgot that this was Girl's Day's debut, no one could blame you.

Song you should listen to instead: Something

Collapse )

F.cuz - Jiggy

The colorful kneepads were a choice. Especially paired with the fluffy white vests. The second version of the MV (yes, there were two) isn't much better. F.Cuz (pronounced as "focus") burst out onto the scene with this colorful pop song. Boy groups weren't immune to the overuse of autotune trend back in 2010. The song is pretty catchy but the lyrics, autotune and the bad fashion choices prevented it from being a hit. Neither debut MV is uploaded to their offical Youtube channel.

Song you should listen to instead: If you must- Midnight Sun

Brandon Flowers on what's next: “...a sixth Killers record, but damn, I love my last solo record!”


The Killers (well, half of them) continue enjoying their highly successful Wonderful Wonderful Tour around the world as well as touring the Summer music festival circuit. But with two members (Dave Keuning and Mark Stoermer) down and no longer touring, some fans are left to wonder about the future of the band.

• Frontman Brandon Flowers addresses this by saying, “At the end of [previous album] Battle Born we did a month in Asia without Mark so we sort of got a little bit of the feeling of what it would be like. And then we had to do the same thing without Dave for a little while," he laughs aware that it sounds as though the band is falling apart, but stresses that's not the case. “It's not unsettling for me as you might think. My job is to sing. I'm trying to look at the things that are more familiar rather than dwell on the things that are not familiar.”

So what's next? “The plan is for it to be a sixth Killers record, but damn, I love my last solo record! We only toured it for a few months and then…” In 2015, Brandon cancelled a string of shows to care for his wife, Tana, who was suffering from PTSD stemming from childhood trauma. “No, the plan is for it to be another Killers record and we have to figure out how to make it work [for Stoermer and Keuning]. Mark is all over this new record — some of his best bass lines and progressions are on this record and he brings a darkness to our music that doesn't really exist without it.”

• So, there you have it. #TK6 is the plan, but realistically#BF3 is going to happen. More behind the cut.

Donald Glover Asks How it's Possible For Lando Carlissian To "Not Be Pansexual in Space?"


In case you missed it, in response to an interviewer's question asking if Lando is pansexual, Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Jonathon Kasdan said, “I would say yes," he emphatically said." There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality,” Kasdan continued. “I mean, I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it’s time, certainly, for that, and I love the fluidity ― sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of."
– Lawrence Kasdan was more cryptic, commenting on a scene with the L3 robot making light of Lando "flirting" with Han, “That is her personality. Maybe it means something, maybe it doesn’t." Jonathan also said, "I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it's time, certainly, for that."
– Donald Glover responded to a question about this by Sirius XM with another question because this obviously wasn't in the script and the Disney assassins are lying in wait, all while conflating being attracted to aliens to being LGBT: “Yeah! How can you not be pansexual in space? There's so many things to have sex with. I'm serious. I didn’t think that was that weird. Yeah, he’s coming on to everybody. Whatever. He's like a 70's swinger. It didn’t seem that weird to me, because I feel like if you’re in space it’s kind of like, the door is open! It’s [not] like, ‘only guys or girls.’ No, it’s anything. This thing is literally a blob. Are you a man or a woman? Like, who cares? Have a good time out here.”
– Sirius XM asked again: "What happens in space stays in space. So he didn't necessary tell you that, but you had the same vibe on it." Donald responded, "I just feel like... One thing that Billy did say, he was like, "Be charming, you know, he's eclectic. He likes different things. He's somebody that goes around and tries everything." Emilia Clarke then butts in, "Tries to have sex with everything."
– Glover continued after laughing about our societal plight: "I just didn't think about it that much. I was like, "He's a charming person. So I feel like he doesn't have hard and fast boundaries about everything. Having somebody tell me that I'm like, 'Ok. Cool. Makes sense to me.' Is it weird that I didn't think about it that much?" Wow, no one had to think about it during production because it's literally not there – I can't stop crying. We did it kids.
– Lucasfilm specifically has yet to comment and confirm if it's "canon" but like who cares.

ONTD, how do you feel about Glover's response? Also, is it a coincidence Disney is framing their black lead this way but insists Han is straight? (no)

Duggar family preventing the more accepting cousin's reality show from being made

duggar-cousin-reality-show-slams-derick-dillard-pp.jpg

The Duggar family is not down with cousin John Andrew Studdard getting his own reality show after producers approached him. John thinks it's because of his outspoken nature toward transphobe and homophobe, Derick Dillard. Studdard’s mother, who is Jim Bob Duggar‘s cousin, and father said they will cut him off financially if he says anything again.

Producers were hoping to do a show with Studdard, a more accepting member of the Duggar family, but all of the immediate family declined to be in it [or give a green light? idk].

“He wants to show his life with his friends and the volunteer work he’s passionate about,” the insider said. “He wants to build a platform to spread awareness for causes and build a bigger empire than his cousins.

After Derick made homophobic comments, Studdard told him he needed to keep his mouth shut and half of America doesn't like him. If he were to get his own show, it'd be more diverse and show a better part of the south.

“I have a unique storyline,” he said. “Being Asian adopted into an all-caucasian family living in the South. My show will be the real South, good style and a lot of colorful personalities. I could carry a show of my own with topics that could reach all audiences. I’m way more fun!”

Remember When Grimes Tried To Live On A Houseboat With Some Chickens?

grimes_ontd
Grimes was not always a millionaire attending the Met Gala and dating a billionaire.

She was once a humble hippie chick from Canada who tried to build a houseboat and sail it down the Mississippi with her boyfriend and several chickens.

Claire "c" Boucher and her bf built a ship called The Velvet Glove Cast In Iron.

They even chose "river names" for themselves-- Veruchka, and Zelda Xox.

grimes_ontd_2

They wanted to live a life like Huckleberry Finn, even though neither of them had read Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. They planned to sail from Minneapolis, Minnesota to New Orleans, Louisiana.

But almost as soon as they put their boat in the water, the engine malfunctioned.

They would tie it to trees on the riverbank, go ashore, and purchase supplies from Craigslist. A police officer gave them tickets for illegally tethering their boat to trees, camping illegally in nearby parks with their chickens, and not having a proper boating license. Cops eventually towed the boat to the impound lot.

5 Times Mrs. Crocombe Made Us Question Victorian Recipes



Mrs. Crocombe is a rising star featured on the English Heritage Youtube channel who delivers us Victorian style recipes. She's based on an actual person who was "head cook for Lord and Lady Braybrooke at Audley End House of Gardens in the 1880s." Her calm and comforting olden day cooking videos have been iconic enough to even start a petition for her own series.

🔪

While most of her recipes are appetizing, others made me question "why?" from the ingredients itself to presentation styles that were... creative, reminiscent to vintage recipes during the mid 20th century when housewives were trying to spruce it up for gatherings.

🍽

OP's note: This comes from an #American point of view, and I mean no offense. We love celebrating #white #culture!

👅

Here are 5 recipes from Mrs. Crocombe we can skip out on:

5. Mince Pies

I know these are traditional classics in English culture... but as an ignorant #American, I can't imagine dishing my way through a fruit cake with bits of meat in it. I imagine it'd be like Rachel Greene's trifle and Shepards pie hybrid. But as much as I would not make it myself, I'd maybe try a bit irl since it's popular.

Lars von Trier Says He ‘Hugged’ Björk and Did Not Sexually Harass Her, Thinks #MeToo Is ‘Brilliant’



Björk published a Facebook post last October accusing an anonymous filmmaker of harassing her on set and punishing her when she did not give into his advances. 

“You know, 90% of the journalists I spoke to believe that I harassed Björk, but that’s ridiculous because I denied it, but no one wrote it. Because a good story is to write that I harassed her. And this is not the case. I touched her, it’s true. I did it with all my actresses. Because she was doing a really intense job: screaming, being sick…so obviously I hugged her. But if she thinks a hug is harassment, then I think I will not be able to succeed without touching my actors. I did not touch her in the wrong places, I think.”

About the #Metoo movement

“I think the MeToo movement is a brilliant idea. If it’s used the right way, it’s something very important. The problem is that the internet is something that we had not imagined would affect our lives so much. Nobody had thought that this or that could happen. Only that some people repressed in some countries had a way to address the world. I’m just scared that if someone says that person has committed murder or whatever, she’s [not] presumed innocent until proven guilty.”

Scarlett Johansson Spotted Having Dinner with Woody Allen



This past Friday actress Scarlett Johansson had dinner with noted auteur child molestor Woody Allen at Come Prima at Madison Avenue.

Johansson has previously worked with Allen on the films Match Point, Scoop, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.


In 2014, Dylan Farrow released an open letter detailing the abuse she underwent at the hands of Woody Allen. She questioned several actors who continued to work with Allen including Emma Stone, Alec Baldwin, Louis CK (ew), and Johansson herself. In response, Johansson said “I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on. That just feels irresponsible to me."
