The Most-Read Books of the 2018 Reading Challenge

The Top Four Most-Read Books:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

About: Harry Potter's life is miserable. His parents are dead and he's stuck with his heartless relatives, who force him to live in a tiny closet under the stairs. But his fortune changes when he receives a letter that tells him the truth about himself: he's a wizard. A mysterious visitor rescues him from his relatives and takes him to his new home, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

After a lifetime of bottling up his magical powers, Harry finally feels like a normal kid. But even within the Wizarding community, he is special. He is the boy who lived: the only person to have ever survived a killing curse inflicted by the evil Lord Voldemort, who launched a brutal takeover of the Wizarding world, only to vanish after failing to kill Harry.

Though Harry's first year at Hogwarts is the best of his life, not everything is perfect. There is a dangerous secret object hidden within the castle walls, and Harry believes it's his responsibility to prevent it from falling into evil hands. But doing so will bring him into contact with forces more terrifying than he ever could have imagined.

Full of sympathetic characters, wildly imaginative situations, and countless exciting details, the first installment in the series assembles an unforgettable magical world and sets the stage for many high-stakes adventures to come.

How many Books have you read so far this year?? // Book Post 📚

Promo for CW's "Roswell, New Mexico"

After reluctantly returning to her tourist-trap hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: he’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect and begin to investigate his origins, but when a violent attack and long-standing government cover-up point to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him and destroy their deepening romance.

Roswell, New Mexico premieres January 15th.


Here’s how to get free Starbucks coffee or tea every day in January

No, this isn’t spam and Stewie isn’t a bot (though sometimes I wonder 😒). Coffee enthusiasts last month were upset when their reusable red coffee cups sold out in mere minutes. But the company is raising the stakes this time around. Starbucks has announced their new 16-ounce Brewed Refill Tumbler, which you can find in stores now (if they haven’t already sold out in your location). And starting January 1st 2019, walk into any SBux location and get a free refill on hot coffee or tea every single day in January.

So what’s the catch? No specialty coffees or teas are available as part of this promotional deal and the Tumbler will set you back $40+ tax. But if you break down your drinking habits, you can figure out if this deal is worth it for you or not. Go every single day or nearly every day and the cup pays for itself and can save anywhere from $40 to $50 for the entire month. But let’s say even if you don’t end up going every day next month, just 14 visit or so will help you break even so the tumbler pays for itself. Go less days and well, perhaps leave this cup on the shelf.

Jake Gyllenhaal to Star in Remake of Denmark's 'The Guilty'

- Because we are now apparently forbidden from coming up with original concepts for film and television, Jake Gyllenhaal is set to star in a remake of The Guilty.
- The film won the world cinema audience award at Sundance and has been nominated for several European awards, as well as being Denmark's Oscar entrant this year.
- Jake is set to produce under his Nine Stories banner with Riva Marker, in cooperation with Bold Films.
- Plot summary: The movie follows a police officer under investigation, who’s demoted to desk work at an emergency call center. When he receives a terrified phone call from a kidnapped woman, he must battle his internal demons in order to save her.
- Jake's got a busy few months ahead, so it might be a while til this goes into production; he's got a run at the Public Theater lined up from January through March.

Jennifer Aniston hired a ghost whisperer

Jennifer Aniston shared an anecdote about her early days in L.A. on The Late Late Show with James Corden. She says:

  • The ghost whisperer put frankincense a little dish, which cracked when she took it to the first corner of the house

ABC reportedly charging $2 million - $ 3million for ads airing during 2019 Oscars

Because it is indeed the Super Bowl of the entertainment industry, the Oscars and ABC are seeking $2 million and $3 million per 30-second ad for their 2019 live telecast on February 24th. ABC charged as much as $2.6 million for a spot at this past year's very lackluster Oscars. ABC also made $128 million from the 2017 telecast, for reference.

Just for comparison, CBS is demanding between $5.1 million and $5.3 million for the 2019 Super Bowl, and $1 million for a 30-second spot at February's Grammys.

Also, for those interested, Variety broke down who they think will be the big Oscars contenders this season, here (just in time for tomorrow's SAG nominations):

A Selena Quintanilla TV series greenlit by Netflix

Netflix has greenlit a scripted series that retells the tragic life story of Selena Quintanilla, la reina of Tejano music and one of the most iconic Mexican-American singers to have lived.

“Selena and the entire Quintanilla family are an inspiration to many and especially to me, a millennial of the same heritage. Selena’s career achievements are legendary, but our scripted series will focus on the incredible story of a Mexican-American family and how an extraordinary young woman transcended categories and borders to become a global star. I can’t imagine a better partner than Netflix to celebrate Selena and her family’s lives,” said the president of Campanario Entertainment.

Selena was tragically shot and killed in 1995 at the young age of 23 by her former fan club president Yolanda Saldívar. She’s currently being held in the Mountain View Unit in Texas serving a life sentence with a possibility of parole in 2025.

A biopic starring Jennifer Lopez was released in 1997 by Warner Bros. and helped catapult Lopez and her career.

Gretchen Carlson slams upcoming Fox news movie for inaccuracies

  • TV commentator Gretchen Carlson who in 2016 successfully sued Fox News mogul Roger Ailes for sexual harassment resulting in a $20 million payout is upset about the upcoming movie about Ailes's downfall

  • The film (formerly called Fair & Balanced) also stars John Lithgow as Ailes and a ton of Hollywood blondes as the blonde commentators of Fox including Charlize Theron, Connie Britton, Margot Robbie, Elisabeth Röhm, Kate McKinnon, Alice Eve and more

Police Responding To Noise Complaint End Up Playing ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’

In a rare instance of "Police see black people and don't open fire", police ended up joining in a game of the latest entry in the Smash Bros. saga.

A noise complaint was filed after the combatants were super pumped about their fights, and the police arrived - and asked what they were playing.

“I’m like, ‘Y’all wanna play ‘Smash?!’’ And two of them literally raised their hand and walked up. They’re like, ‘How do you jump?’ [...] one of them was playing Pikachu!” said Jovante Williams, one of the Smashers.

The officers said that the group wasn't being too loud. No word on who the other officer mained or if their next call involved unecessary violence.


I don't have the game yet but if you do, are you having fun?

Jennifer Tilly talks about poker, acting and the important things in life


Jennifer Tilly did an interview with So Much Poker, so you can imagine it was mostly about poker. I skimmed through all that stuff because ONTD probably doesn't care too much about that and picked out some of the more interesting details she shared.

- She grew up really poor and her family didn't have a TV, so they played a lot of cards when she was growing up. When she was an adult her dad bought her a handheld poker video game which got her interested in the game. When she started dating her boyfriend, professional poker player Phil Laak, he encouraged her to start playing more seriously.

- She's always kept a notebook by her bed where she's written things she wanted accomplish. Some things she's written down were to become a millionaire, become an actress, travel the world and win a WSOP bracelet. She's accomplished all those things.

- She and Phil try not to play at the same table in real tournaments because they're worried people will think they're going too easy on each other.

- She stopped getting offered as many acting roles after the age of 40, but she's been enjoying just doing the occasional Chucky movie, voice work and some plays. She'll be in the new Chucky TV show.

- After losing both her ex-husband and mother in the past few years, she's realized that she needs to spend as much time with friends and family as possible. It's much easier to do that while playing poker than with acting.

- She had an experience where she asked a celebrity to take a picture with her and they said no and it really hurt her feelings, so now she goes out of her way to take pictures with fans when they ask for it.

- She really wants to write a movie about poker and she has a lot of ideas for one but she's been too lazy to do it so far (relatable queen).


Is there something you really want to do but you've been too lazy to do?

Another Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Poster Emerges

Still shaking off the shadowy monstrosity of the initial Sonic the Hedgehog movie poster? Well have another one!

This Twitter user appears to have been at the movies when they spotted this new Sonic poster.

A trailer is probably right around the corner.

My fellow ONTDers, we have always known that "famous" people and their PR interns walk among us. Who else would submit all those D-list celebrity walking posts on this dying site? Or stan new, fledgling popstars who barely have any google results? This is nothing new.

But none of those reality stars, Lorde clones or social media influencers have the mystique of Orville Peck, a masked LGBT country star who has described himself as a "psychedelic cowboy outlaw" and gained a small following. Surely someone that cool and hipster-y and made for a Pitchfork year end list wouldn't need to promote themselves on the purple site full of jackals? Hm?
